Four gaming PCs you could buy on Black Friday for an RTX 3080, 3070 Ti or 3060 Ti

Good gaming GPUs still sell for ridiculous amounts on eBay because they’re practically impossible to find at retail, especially for something close to their suggested retail price. But if you’re willing to buy a full pre-built gaming PC instead, there are four specific Black Friday deals that I think are worth bringing to your attention.

RTX3080

You can get this true 4K graphics card in a specific configuration of the HP Omen 30L (GT13-1380z) for just $1,611, paired with an AMD Ryzen 5600X and, admittedly, a paltry 8GB of RAM and a very small 256GB SSD that you’ll probably want to upgrade later.

You don’t see that GPU or that price when you first click on the link; you must first add the $40 premium for the case with the 800W power supply and then select the RTX 3080 graphics card. Add the coupon code HOLIDAY10 at checkout to get the full discount.

We saw the RTX 3080 fetch an average of $1,773 on eBay last week — just for the graphics card alone.

The HP Omen 30L. The 25L is similar, but smaller and without the illuminated front fan.

RTX 3070 Ti

NZXT’s handsome $1,799 Streaming Plus PC may be more expensive than HP’s 3080 offering, but it pairs the RTX 3070 Ti with the more multitasking-savvy AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU — and at 16GB/1TB, it has twice the RAM four times. the SSD storage of HP’s desktop plus what I think is a much more attractive design. It has a 750W Gold certified power supply and a two year warranty.

No coupon code needed here; you’ll see the price of $1799 at checkout.

NZXT’s PC comes pre-built in the company’s proprietary Kraken M22 case.

RTX 3060 Ti

Two worthy options here:

  • $1,188 for an HP Omen 25L (GT12-1340m) with an AMD Ryzen 5600X, RTX 3060 Ti, a 600W PSU and the same 8GB/256GB RAM and storage as its bigger cousin. Again, you come in HOLIDAY10 at the cash register.

  • $1,372 for this Alienware Aurora R12 with a 3060 Ti, 16 GB of RAM, a 512 GB SSD, and an 11th-gen Core i7-11700F. Unless you’re on a serious budget or ecstatic about AMD processors, I think this is the better deal than HP, with more than bang for your buck in extra memory and storage, a comparably capable processor with a few extra cores, and a simple upgradable chassis design without tools. If I was in the market I would buy it myself.

The Alienware Aurora swings open for upgrades.
