Thinking of getting a gaming PC? There’s never been a better time, especially if you want an easy life with a prebuilt PC during Amazon Prime Day.
The prebuilt PC market is a low-key success story in the last few years. Companies like iBuyPower have paid attention to the wants and needs of the PC gaming community.
Things are now in parity with building your own PC, with the only concession being the additional cost. Have no fear though, as Prime Day (July 11-12) is probably going to see some of these PC builders drop the prices to clear out some of the killer last-gen hardware. On top of this, budget prebuilt PCs are now totally viable to keep you going for the foreseeable future.
PCs with RTX 40-series cards will have access to DLSS 3, which boosts your performance considerably regardless if you’re on a 4090 or 4060. Of course, you wouldn’t want to game at 4K with a raw RTX 4060, but with DLSS 3’s performance mode and frame generation, you’d be soaring to a solid 60FPS.
Even PCs that come with AMD or last-gen Nvidia GPUs will still last you a fair amount of time, as DLSS 2 is still wonderfully impressive and AMD’s FSR, while not as good, is consistently improving each update.
Prices also might seem a little high right now on current-gen systems, but this is mostly due to the ongoing price issues surrounding DDR5 RAM.
The upside is that storage prices have effectively begun to tank, so if you find some of the prebuilds lacking in terms of storage, that can be easily remedied.
High-end prebuilt PC Prime Day deals: RTX 4090, 4080 & more
Ready to splash some cash? There are plenty of systems out there with the goods onboard. An RTX 4090 and 4080, or even AMD’s top-range GPUs might cost a fair bit, but when you start to weigh up the prices with the rest of the hardware onboard (CPUs, RAM, etc.), it starts to make a little more sense.
Prime Day mid-range prebuilt gaming PCs: RTX 4070, 4060 & more
The mid-range PC is one of the best deals you can get right now, with some of the machines available providing gaming performance way out of their price range.
As went into above, a lot of this comes from supersampling, and there’s a large portion of machines that might end up using it as a crutch. This isn’t anything to snub your nose at, as an RTX 4060 Ti-enabled system can still outpace a lot of other, better cards on the market with the added help.
It also means you won’t be worried about your bank account after splurging.
Budget prebuilt PC Prime Day deals:
Whatever your budget, if you want to game on PC, there are some great low-end machines these days.
The specs might not be as good, but more often than not you can rely on new technologies to keep you afloat. These PCs will also be fantastic for those just wanting to play their favorite esports titles. There’s no need to load up with an intense system when all you need is a high refresh rate monitor to play valorant this summer.
