The specifications include an AMD Ryzen 7 processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and a 512GB solid state drive. It also has a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super graphics card for playing your favorite games. Today's discount is a temporary one.
This day and age, a prebuilt gaming desktop can be a great way to go. We regularly update our list of the best gaming PCs around, and this is one that is worth mentioning specifically because of all you get for the price. Even if the build isn't perfect, if you're saving money you can build onto what already exists and improve it over time. Plus you often get something that has been professionally assembled, relieving you of some of the stress that might accompany putting your own system together. Many PC parts, especially graphics cards, have had some pretty bloated pricing recently, too, so that's another potential way to save through a prebuilt that has a fixed price.
In this case, the prebuilt PC you're getting includes an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X processor with up to 3.60GHz speeds, 16GB DDR4 RAM, a 1TB hard drive for storage, and a 512GB solid state drive for some extra space and extra loading speeds. It is also powered by a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super GPU, which is a fantastic graphics card that should let you play most games at a high setting.
You'll have some room for expanding on your build eventually, too, with extra memory slots for adding more RAM and more bays for hard drives. You'll get Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless connectivity options. There are also multiple USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports that can provide super fast data transfer speeds and let you connect all your peripherals.
This PC even comes with a keyboard and mouse so all you'll need to do is find a monitor to get up and running right away.
