It’s been a year of scarcity for PC enthusiasts, with new graphics cards (GPU) and new processors (CPU) launching with limited stock. If you didn’t manage to get your hands on NVIDIA’s new RTX 30-series GPUs on launch day or soon thereafter, chances are you’re still out of luck. Or rather, you are unless you’re prepared to get a little more outside the box with your thinking.
As we’re into Cyber Monday, Dell’s Alienware brand has just the ticket and with some discounts for added good measure. Whether you’re an Intel or AMD fan, you can get yourself an RTX 3070 or RTX 3080. And get this? Alienware will even include the rest of the PC!
Both Ryzen-based machines feature the superb eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, 16GB of Hyper X Fury DDR4 2933MHz RAM and a 512GB PCIe SSD. The essential difference is that one has an RTX 3070, and for about $150 more you can grab one with an RTX 3080 instead.
If, however, you’d rather go for the blue team and get an Intel-powered build, you can. The R11 comes with 10th Gen Intel Core i7 or Core i9 CPUs, 16GB or 32GB of Hyper X Fury DDR4 2933MHz RAM and up to 2TB of storage. GPU wise you can choose from an RTX 3070, RTX 3080 or the utterly mad RTX 3090.
If you stick with the RTX 3070 for 1440p supremacy, you’re looking at a configuration that’s discounted by about $45 for a total price of about $2,196. If you want to go all-out with the RTX 3090, models are discounted by about $74 for a total price of about $3,587. The RTX 3080 model sits between the two at $2,392.
This isn’t a huge sale, but it’s a solid option for anyone who is looking to do a full upgrade for the latest generation of NVIDIA RTX GPUs. Every little bit of savings helps, and with this sale you’re getting that coveted RTX 30 series as well as a shiny new PC.
