The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 is the company's first 50-series desktop GPU with support for ray tracing. It's designed to deliver a modern gaming experience with the latest tech from NVIDIA but at a much more affordable price than the best graphics cards on the market. The RTX 3050's MSRP is $249, though you can get one for as much as $489 if you'd like. Now, you can order desktop PCs from MAINGEAR with the RTX 3050 inside.

"There's a misconception that PC gaming is all about the super high-end, and this scares away a lot of people — particularly gamers who have historically stuck with consoles," said MAINGEAR CEO Wallace Santos. "MAINGEAR systems with the GeForce RTX 3050 start as low as $1599, which offers comparable performance to the latest consoles but with far more customization and functionality."

The comparison to consoles may raise eyebrows, as the Xbox Series X retails for $500. Some would argue that paying triple the cost of an Xbox Series X for similar, if not weaker, performance is not equivalent to a good low-to-mid-end value.

MAINGEAR has a range of PCs that can be configured with the RTX 3050, including the VYBE, R1, TURBO, F131, and RUSH.
