The Best Dell Deals: Score a Dell XPS RTX 3060 Gaming PC for $999.99
New 2021 Dell and Alienware RTX 30 Series Gaming Laptops and PCs Are Available
Dell is one of best brands we'd recommend if you're looking to get a prebuilt gaming PC. The Alienware gaming desktops offer a staggering array of options, all built into a custom chassis that's both easy on the eyes and easy on the wallet. Alienware gaming laptops have been redesigned to be thinner and lighter while still offering the same immense power under the hood. For those of you on a budget, Dell also offers its Dell G-series gaming desktops and laptops. You still get to customize it to your heart's content, but at a much lower price point. If you're not looking for a gaming rig, the XPS laptop is perfect for the road warrior, and the Inspirons are great for value-minded students. Combine all of this with readily available sales and coupons, as well as Dell's best-in-class customer service, and you can understand why they are at the top of our buying list.

Dell XPS Intel Core i7 RTX 3060 PC for $999.99
This is the best price at Dell for an RTX 3060 equipped gaming PC. The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to the RTX 2060 SUPER and almost matches the RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. It will easily handle all of your games at up to 1440p, and even 4K if your game isn't too demanding. It's paired with the latest 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and dual hard drives. If you ever want to upgrade components (i.e. add another 8GB of RAM), you can do it easily without voiding the warranty.
Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3070 PC for $1599.99
Select "RTX 3070" upgrade during the customization step
Make sure to select the RTX 3070 upgrade in the dropdown (by default the RTX 3060 is equipped). The RTX 3070 is a huge step up from the RTX 3060. It's slightly more powerful that the previous generation's champ, the RTX 2080 SUPER. Currently there's no other prebuilt gaming PC on the market equipped with an RTX 3070 at this price or less. You should be able to easily run BF2042 at up to 3440x1440 and 60+fps.
Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3080 PC for $2199.99
Do you need a rig that can run Battlefield 2042 in 4K? If you've been on the lookout for the extremely elusive RTX 3080 video card for your (up to 4K) gaming needs, then check out this ready-to-go prebuilt Alienware Aurora gaming PC from Dell. This PC comes equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 512GB SSD, and a separate 1TB hard drive for storage. The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation's best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 is the card I'm currently using for the BF2042 open beta, and I can run the game at 4K resolution and over 60fps consistently at medium to high settings.
Customizable Alienware Aurora Gaming PCs
If you don't mind upgrading the RAM and storage of your PC yourself, you can pick up some stock Alienware gaming PCs equipped with RTX 30 series video cards at a great price. Of course, these PCs are customizable, so you're free to pick and choose which upgrades you'd rather have out of the box. The obvious one we'd recommend would be a Core i7 processor upgrade, but other than that, we suggest you shop elsewhere for the upgrades.
Alienware m15 R6 RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop
Right now you won't find a less expensive Alienware gaming laptop equipped with the RTX 3060 video card. The Alienware m15 R6 boasts an RTX 3060 video card that's rated at 115W TDP; that means it is one of the fastest mobile RTX 3060 cards available, better than the "Max-Q" energy-efficient models found in most other laptops (and in many cases on par with the RTX 3070 models found in other laptops). You shouldn't have any problem running most games smoothly on the 1080p display.
Dell S2721DGF 27" 1440p GSYNC Gaming Monitor
This is one of the best gaming monitors you can buy for under $500. The S2721DGF is a 27" monitor with an excellent IPS panel (better than the VA panel found on the popular S3220DGF model). It features wide viewing angles and excellent color rendition including 98% DCI-P3 color coverage. At the same time, it boasts a super fast 1ms response time and up to 165Hz refresh rate through the DisplayPort. It's also FreeSync Premium Pro and G-SYNC compatible.
New! Alienware X15 and X17 Gaming Laptops
Dell has launched two new Alienware laptops for 2021, the 15" X15 and the 17" X17. They succeed the m15 and m17 as Alienware's flagship gaming laptops. They also happen to be the thinnest Alienware laptops ever despite the fact that they're equipped with the next generation RTX 30 series video cards. In fact, they are thinner than the "ultra-thin" Razer Blade 15" laptop. The X15 model measures in at only 0.63" thin and 5.2 pounds and the X17 model is 0.84" thin and 7.05 pounds. The laptops also feature the newest Intel 11th gen H-series processors and a powerful quadruple fan active cooling system that keeps all the components nice and cool.
