AMD's Radeon RX 6700 XT launches today. Unfortunately, by the time you read this, there's a good chance that it's already sold out. All of the best graphics cards that launch these days sell out within minutes, if not seconds, due to stock shortages. If you are lucky enough to find an RX 6700 XT in stock, you should probably jump on the chance to buy it.
The RX 6700 XT has 40 compute units, 2,424MHz game clock, and 96MB Infinity Cache. It has 12GB of GDDR6 memory and has PCIe 4.0 support. It will be easy to connect PCs with the new GPU to the best computer monitors since the GPU supports DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1 (with support for 4K@120Hz or 8K@60Hz).

Many gamers find 1440p gaming to be the sweet spot between high framerates and high resolution. The RX 6700 XT looks to be an excellent graphics card for that segment of gamers.
IF you can't find an RX 6700 XT on its own, you may have better luck purchasing one within a prebuilt PC. HP recently announced that the Omen 25L and 30L will have options powered by the RX 6700 XT.
Mainstream 4K Gaming
HP Omen 30L
Bottom line: The HP Omen 30L, when appropriately configured, is a serious 4K gaming mainstream rig with pleasant aesthetics that lean more modern than hardcore gamer. With the ability to easily expand or upgrade components later, there's an incentive to buy this on the cheap and upgrade-as-you-go if you're on a budget. Fan noise and some mediocre cabling keep it from brilliance, but these are minor quibbles.
