Amazon offers the iBUYPOWER Ryzen 5/16GB/500GB/RTX 3060 Gaming Desktop for $949.99 shipped. Today’s deal is down from $1,400, marking a new low that we’ve tracked before. Featuring AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600G processor with built-in Radeon graphics, you’ll find that this desktop also includes an RTX 3060 GPU for better performance all around. While there’s no PCIe 4.0 support, that probably won’t be an issue as PCIe 3.0 can still deliver 3.5GB/s transfer rates with compatible SSDs. Plus, you’ll find a 500GB NVMe SSD pre-installed, although iBUYPOWER doesn’t list the specs. But really, if you want to get started with PC gaming and aren’t sure how to build your own desktop or where to start, this is a solid choice. Take a closer look at the RTX 3060 in our hands-on review. Keep reading for gaming PC deals.
B&H also takes advantage of the discounts by dropping the HP ENVY i5/16GB/512GB/RTX 3060 Gaming Desktop on $999 shipped from the normal rate of $1,300. It’s not quite as big a savings as today’s main deal with $450 off, but it still has a few things the iBUYPOWER model above doesn’t have. For starters, this system is fully PCIe 4.0 and Compatible with PCIe 5.0 using Intel’s 12th generation i5 processor. It also comes with 16GB of DDR5 memory, instead of the DDR4 you find above. So for $50 more, you can get a system with a lot more features. However, it trades iBUYPOWER’s boutique namesake with its stylings and choice of parts for HP, which could be a drawback for some.
