Dell is offering a new deal on its XPS gaming PC equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor and an RTX 3060 Ti video card. The RTX 30 series video cards are getting a bit easier to find, but most vendors (including reputable ones like Amazon) are still charging for hundreds of dollars over MSRP. If you’re building out an entire new gaming PC, in most cases you’ll still save a lot of money going the prebuilt route, especially since Dell is offering an unbeatable price for a solidly built, fully warrantied gaming rig.
Dell XPS RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for $1249.99
This PC is equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, and an RTX 3060 Ti video card. The RTX 3060 Ti is significantly more powerful than the RTX 3060; it can easily handle gaming at 1440p, even up to 144Hz. It’s only slightly behind the RTX 3070 and if you’re playing at 1440p or less resolution, the performance gap isn’t really worth the price difference. Compared to the previous generation of NVIDIA graphics cards, it’s as powerful as the RTX 2080 SUPER.
Dell XPS RTX 3060 Gaming PC for $1149.99
The Dell XPS gaming PC is equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB HDD, and the RTX 3060 video card. The low price tag might imply that the RTX 3060 is not up to snuff, but nothing could be further from the truth. The RTX 3060 is about 20% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER and is on par with the RTX 2070, but with the advantage of better DLSS and Ray Tracing compatibility. That means it handles 1080p gaming beautifully and has the chops to take on 1440p and VR gaming as well.
