It's difficult to recommend RTX 30-series gaming desktops deals, as even when they're on sale, they almost always come with a ridiculous premium cost. But Dell just dropped a several hundred dollar deal on a desktop with all the latest and greatest parts.
Alienware’s Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 gaming desktop with an AMD Ryzen 9 CPU and an RTX 3080 GPU is now $230 off — taking the price down to $2,689 at Dell.
As you can read in our Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition review, the visual design of this beast is quite divisive, but if you’re on the side that likes the looks, this is one helluva powerful gaming rig.
Not only that, but the design is compact and easy to open so you can get to the innards, making upgradeability a cinch. Plus, the high-performance CPU liquid cooling keeps things running at an optimal temperature.

Is that PC a partnership with Dyson fans?! :)Reply
If they actually put a liquid cooler in this one rather than something resembling an Intel stock cooler, the thermals might not be quite as bad. Though this configuration has a much more power hungry graphics card with a 120 watt higher TDP, so I'm guessing it will get rather warm inside this case.Flappergast said:watch this review - it’s a bad design - Don’t buy!
