**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
RX 5700 XT 8GB/2060 Super 6GB
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]
