Gaming PCs don't have to be flashy or colorful. Sometimes the best gaming PC is a modest box that you can fit under your desk or place beside your monitor. That's especially true when you can get a reliable PC with good specs at a nice price, which is the case right now. Our Zachary Boddy called the Dell XPS Desktop a "monster powerhouse with a minimalist design" in our review. And you can get that monstrous machine onto your desk at a discount right now.

Dell has several discounts on the Dell XPS Desktop, saving you up to $550. There are budget-friendly options that still meet the recommended specs for Baldur's Gate 3 and high-end configurations that can handle the best PC games at ultra settings.

Baldur's Gate 3 takes you into the world of Dungeons and Dragons, an expansive land you can explore and enjoy. But that world only looks as good as the hardware that runs it.

The model with an RTX 3060 is a good choice if you want to play games at 1080p or 1440p. Opting for the higher-end XPS Desktop with an RTX 4090 is an investment for if you want to play on a 4K monitor and play on ultra settings.
