If you’ve been wanting to buy a gaming PC for a while now, but are waiting for a sale, you’re in luck. Best Buy has a massive flash sale on gaming PCs, so it’s the perfect time to look at everything on offer from the link below. We have also put together some great deals that you can see to help with your choice.

MSI Aegis ZS Gaming Desktop – $ 1200, was $ 1500

Although MSI is better known for motherboards and GPUs, it is still a pretty good pre-built PC, and we do not often see them on sale, which makes this particularly interesting. The first thing you will probably want to know is which GPUs are in the box, and we are happy to say that it is the RX 6700 XT, one of the best AMD GPUs, and about the equivalent of an Nvidia RTX 3070 if you are more familiar with it. With the powerful GPU, you can easily run games with 2K and 144Hz refresh rate by using something you can find among one of our game monitor offers. When it comes to CPU, it is a medium to high-end Ryzen 5 5600X, so it should easily handle CPU-intensive tasks such as simulation and strategy games. You also get 16 GB of RAM, which is what we expect in an advanced gaming PC, and 500 GB of SSD storage, which is a bit on the smaller side, but not too bad with good administration.

iBUYPOWER Trace MR Gaming Desktop – $ 1300, was $ 1500

Next up is iBUYPOWER, a company that focuses entirely on custom pre-built gaming PCs, which is pretty nice if you have an idea of ​​what specifications you want. Of course, this one comes with an already established specification build, in the form of the RTX 2060 GPU and an 11th generation Intel i7-11700F, a great combination that will handle most games well, albeit in slightly lower graphics settings. It also comes with 16GB of RAM, which is great, and a total storage of 1.48TB through a combination of a 1TB HDD and a 480GB SSD, which means you’ll probably not run out of space soon.

HP OMEN 30L Gaming Desktop – $ 1400, was $ 1700

Another good deal is on an HP OMEN 30L Gaming Desktop, one of the company’s mainstays along with the HP Pavilion series. This one has an RTX 3060, a reasonably good GPU that should handle most AAA games well, especially if you use a 2K, 144Hz screen or lower. The CPU is an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, which is slightly more powerful than the GPU, which means that it is great for performing productivity or editing work that requires a lot of CPU resources. When it comes to RAM, you get 16 GB, and storage is an affordable 1TB SSD, which makes this a great gaming PC deal overall.
