If you were to buy an RTX 30 series video card today, you’d still be paying way, way over MSRP. However, buying a pre-built RTX 30 series equipped gaming PC is another story; you might actually find one at a good discount. There are some new price drops today from Dell/Alienware. The Dell XPS is equipped with an RTX 3060 video card for under $1K and is powerful enough for most gamers. The Alienware PCs equipped with the RTX 3070 and 3080 video cards are for those who want to push 4K at 60fps or higher, or 1440p at 240fps or higher. Both options are on sale today. Other deals today include a rare 33% off the Calvin and Hobbes hardcover box set, a new SSD that’s perfect for your PS5 storage upgrade, a $260 price drop on a 17″ Lenovo Legion RTX 3070 equipped gaming laptop, and more.

The Complete Calvin and Hobbes Hardcover Box Set
Calvin and Hobbes is such a timeless cartoon classic and sometimes we see the paperback set go on sale but almost never the hardcover set. Today, that’s changed. There’s an instant $33 off discount that will automatically apply during checkout. That makes the hardcover edition cost less than the paperback edition. It’s already temporarily out of stock, but you can still order it to lock in the price. Hurry though, it will sell out soon.
Dell XPS Intel Core i5 RTX 3060 PC for $999.99
Dell XPS Intel Core i5-11400 RTX 3060 PC with 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD
This is the lowest price we’ve found anywhere right now for an RTX 3060 equipped gaming PC. The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to the RTX 2060 SUPER and almost matches the RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. You couldn’t even find an RTX 2060 SUPER PC for under $1,000 at the moment. It’s paired with the latest 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor. The 8GB of RAM and 1TB hard drive is pretty basic, but since this is a desktop PC, it’s very easy to swap out those components yourself with better ones.
Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3060 PC for $1299 (Upgrade to the RTX 3070 for $1599.99)
Select “RTX 3070” upgrade during the customization step
Alienware Aurora R12 Intel Core i7-11700F RTX 3060 PC with 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD
Alienware Aurora R12 Intel Core i7-11700F RTX 3070 PC with 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD
This is the best price right now for an Alienware RTX 30 series equipped gaming PC. The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to the RTX 2060 SUPER and almost matches the RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. It will easily handle all of your games at up to 1440p, and even 4K if your game isn’t too demanding. It’s paired with the latest 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. There’s only a 256GB SSD installed, but it’s a very simple task to add in your own second SSD or hard drive, and you won’t void your warranty.
There’s an option to upgrade to the RTX 3070 for an additional $300. The RTX 3070 is a substantial step up from the RTX 3060. It’s a bit more powerful that even the previous generation’s champ, the RTX 2080 SUPER.
Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3080 PC for $2199.99
Alienware Aurora R12 Intel Core i7-11700 RTX 3080 PC with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB HDD
Do you need a rig that can run Battlefield 2042 in 4K? If you’ve been on the lookout for the extremely elusive RTX 3080 video card for your (up to 4K) gaming needs, then check out this ready-to-go prebuilt Alienware Aurora gaming PC from Dell. This PC comes equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 512GB SSD, and a separate 1TB hard drive for storage. The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 is the card I’m currently using for the BF2042 open beta, and I can run the game at 4K resolution and over 60fps consistently at medium to high settings.

Select “RTX 3080” and “800W Power Supply” as upgrades

HP OMEN AMD Ryzen 5 5600X RTX 3080 PC with 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD
Here’s another RTX 3080 config that’s worth a look. Although its overall specs aren’t as good as the Alienware config listed above, you simply won’t find an RTX 3080 equipped pre-built PC for a cheaper price. In fact, the RTX 3080 by itself probably goes for a similar price on eBay. It’s paired with the latest AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor (which can be upgraded). The 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD is lean, but you can easily pick out and swap in your own components.
Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 6 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop
Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 6 17″ AMD Ryzen 7 5800H RTX 3070 Laptop with 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD
There’s a lot of good things about this deal. First, this is one of the least expensive Lenovo Legion laptops we’ve ever seen equipped with a very capable RTX 3070 video card. Second, this is one of the least expensive 17″ laptops we’ve ever seen with an RTX 3070 video card. Third, the RTX 3070 is a Max-P model which favors performance (as opposed to the Max-Q model which favors energy efficiency), meaning it has one of the best performing RTX 3070 mobile graphics on the market.

2020 Apple MacBook Air M1 13″ Laptop
2020 Apple MacBook Air 13″ Retina Apple M1 Laptop with 8GB RAM, 256GGB SSD
Amazon is offering the lowest price we’ve ever seen on the late 2020 Apple MacBook Air laptop equipped with the new Apple M1 chip. The Apple M1 chip is a bona fide speed demon that offers better performance while generating less heat and consuming less power than any of the Intel chips that Apple used in previous models.

This is the lowest price we’ve seen for a Gigabyte AERO gaming laptop equipped with an RTX 3080 video card and 4K AMOLED display. In fact, we haven’t seen ANY laptop equipped with an RTX 3080 at this price or less. The RTX 3080 video card has a boost clock of 1245MHz and a TDP of 105W. It boasts an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor and weighs 4.4 pounds.

Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
If you regret not picking the Airpods Pro up on Amazon Prime Day, here’s your chance to get it today at an even lower price. The AirPods Pro is considered one of the best noise-cancelling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. The noise cancellation is considered to be even better than the Bose Quietcomfort because of the natural noise isolating design of the in-ear earbuds. If isolation and sound quality are of utmost important to you, then it’s worth the $80 upgrade over the vanilla AirPods 2.
2021 LG C1 65″ 4K OLED TV Price Drop
2021 LG C1 65″ 4K OLED Smart TV
Today the newest LG 65″ 4K OLED TV has dropped to the lowest price we’ve ever seen. The LG C1 OLED TV improves upon last year’s highly-rated CX model with an upgraded A9 Gen 4 processor that delivers slightly better image quality, better 4K scaling, and improved audio handling as well as a new webOS smart TV redesign. The C1 OLED TV also looks good when paired to a gaming PC with an RTX 30 series video card because it has HDMI 2.1 inputs that support 4K at 120Hz and G-SYNC. It’s easily one of the best (if not the best) TVs on the market right now.
