**SAVE10 extra 10% off coupon expired this weekend**
Part of Dell's 4th of July sale has this Aurora R10 desktop which I think is a good starter gaming system, use SAVE10 to get price to $934.92

Ryzen 5 3500
8GB RAM
RX 5700 XT 8GB/2060 Super 6GB
1TB SATA
550W PSU

https://www.dell.com/en-us/member...63045a1b8c

This would be good for someone who doesn't want to build their own PC, have mid-level gaming needs. This isn't the "best" desktop deal and sure you can assemble better branded parts for cheaper, but for an Alienware desktop with a warranty, I think this is a pretty good deal.

$120 AMEX promo and if you have the Dell 15% coupon (which some may have received via a physical mailer) can get this down under $800.

Worthwhile upgrades to consider (these 3 total up $1067)
$49 for Ryzen 5 - 3600x cpu
$49 for dual drive (128GB SSD + 1TB HDD)
$49 for liquid cooling

Alternatively for you can get this build for $1137 [dell.com]
Ryzen 5 - 3600x
2060 Super 6GB
16GB HyperX Fury RAM
256GB SSD + 1TB HDD
Liquid Cooled 850W PSU

The 3500 is a 3600 without multi threading, an interesting choice. This thing doesn't seem to have an SSD, and for this price, well it doesn't seem very good. 8 gigs is pretty good,. The PSU is a PSU, most likely nothing special. Yes the graphics are very good, but without a SSD this will still feel kinda slow.

Agreed wish they had the Ryzen 5 3600...the Ryzen 7 3700x is an extra $100 which I think is a worthwhile upgrade.

And I just tried, the SAVE10 coupon is valid...

I hesitated a few weeks ago when they were on sale. For comparison, I had the 3600x and 5700xt. I already have an NVME and would add more RAM later because Dell charges like $200 for 16GB 2933 RAM. That's ridiculous. My final price would have been near $900. That is with the sale 10% and AMeX deal worked in.

These are so overpriced. Especially the RAM. SSD is extra too. You also need a monitor which is at least $300-400 for a good one. A nice keyboard and mouse will cost $100-200 more. You need speakers. A 2060 is also an entry level card. I'd say a 2070 Super is what you need minimum to be set for the next 4+ years.
I already have a monitor. And a keyboard. And a mouse. Even a mousepad! Don't need speakers either. I have a headset.

Well, then you need a decent TV at $800, and a couch for $800, and then a coffee table to set your drink on. LMAO

Didn't know a PC and a gaming console were mutually exclusive, either.

Fair warning, Dell is having major delivery delays at the moment. A PC that should have arrived in early June is now slated for August. Do not use this if you want the product you paid for in an expedient manner.

Some of the Dell builds are extremely good value. Especially because you don't have to put it together yourself. When I was younger I loved putting together computers, but now I despise it and find it to be a waste of time - it's like assembling furniture from a box, it sucks.

However, yes, once you start upgrading components, then it destroys the value and becomes exorbitantly priced. Some of the deals floating around with GTX 2080s though are very cheap, and basically on par (or even cheaper) than what you'd pay buying the pieces from Amazon/NewEgg.

There's no such thing as a RTX 2600 super in 6GB - they are an 8GB card.

This is not a bad deal. RAM and SSD would prob need some modifications.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor (Purchased For $160.82)
CPU Cooler: ARCTIC Freezer 34 eSports CPU Cooler (Purchased For $45.30)
Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard (Purchased For $148.03)
Memory: OLOy WarHawk RGB 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory (Purchased For $69.54)
Storage: Western Digital SN750 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (Purchased For $74.50)
Video Card: XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB THICC III Ultra Video Card (Purchased For $380.58)
Case: Lian Li LANCOOL II-X ATX Mid Tower Case (Purchased For $106.66)
Power Supply: Corsair CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply (Purchased For $85.20)

Total: $1070.63 (after shipping+taxes)

This is a build I made last week, all things purchased new, some of the items had a 10% discount code applied.

I would prob sell the RAM from the alienware build for like $25 and get 3200MHz 16GB RAM for like $60 and then get at least an 120GB SSD for $25 then you are looking at $1083.12 before tax for the alienware system that has 5700xt + 3600x + liquid cooler. You also get a mouse and keyboard and 1 year warranty support included in price for the whole system, which you can upgrade.

The value is pretty good for this deal (after you do some changes after you buy it) and compared to my build, it has a 3600x (better boost clocks) and a liquid cooler and the case looks pretty dope. You also get a keyboard and mouse, and 1TB HDD + 120GB SSD vs my 500GB NVMe SSD.

If you play at 1080p, you can get a good monitor for around $195 after tax (AOC 24G2, etc).

they have 3600x, +$49 add on. But then they require you to get a liquid cooler +$49. Still not bad deal, look at my comment at the bottom about what changes you can do.
