A gaming PC will set you back a significant chunk of change these days, especially if you want to future-proof your setup a bit by buying something on the higher end. That said, this ROG Strix G10 is a great price for anyone looking to buy a PC with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. (opens in a new tab).
Normally there would be a downside to such a deal—less than ideal RAM or storage in need of an upgrade—but here you have a PC with everything you need. We rate the Intel Core i5 11400F (opens in a new tab) as one of the best of the latest 11th Gen desktop CPUs. It’s also my current processor, and it more than holds up to the nightmarish cocktail of games I throw at it every day.
You also have 16GB of RAM, which is more than enough for most modern games, and 512GB of storage. If you’re the kind of person who likes to have a lot of games installed at once, this might go down before too long considering how big games can get these days, but it should last you a while, if not indefinitely.
Then you have the RTX 3060, which is what this deal is all about. The card alone would normally set you back $350-400, whereas here you’re getting an entire gaming PC for nearly double the price. The RTX 3060 is also a decent graphics card, offering a healthy performance boost over its 2060 predecessor.
All in all, you’re getting a PC that can handle 1080p gaming at a pretty low price. If you’re looking to buy your first gaming PC, there are far worse places to start. Hell, I’m almost tempted to buy it even though I already have.
