Amazon is now offering the Skytech Chronos i5/16GB/500GB/RTX 3060 Gaming Desktop for $986.99 shipped. Normally going for $1,181, this 16% discount, or a solid $194 price drop, marks a new low we’ve tracked for this desktop spec. While the Intel i5-12400F processor here isn’t the latest generation, it’s still powerful with RTX 3060 graphics running games at 1080p high settings at over 60FPS with ease. 16 GB of DDR4 RAM is enough for gaming and even running professional creative applications with 500 GB of SSD storage which is enough for a game library, but you will probably want to expand it later. The best part about Skytech gaming desktops is that they are made from off-the-shelf parts, so you don’t have to worry about proprietary motherboards or power supplies. Go below for more.
If you prefer a mobile gaming experience, then check out the Acer Nitro 5 i7/8GB/512GB/RTX 3050 Ti Gaming Laptop for $730. Here you will use the 11th generation Intel i7 processor with RTX 3050 Ti graphics, which is a step down from the 3060 present with the Skytech desktop. You’ll also have a 15.6-inch 1080p 144Hz display that will see a lot of use in most games with some more demanding titles requiring slightly lower graphics settings. The total amount of RAM available here has also been halved to 8GB, but it’s still enough for most modern games to run well.
When you’re done here, be sure to head over to our PC Gaming Hub for the latest deals on hardware and peripherals. Looking to upgrade your existing internal storage? We are currently tracking the CORSAIR MP600 PRO LPX M.2 NVMe SSD marked for $85 which is down from the usual $108 in recent months. You’re looking at a PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 NVMe 1.4 interface that clocks in at up to 7100MB/s. Ready to upgrade your PC battle station or slip into a PlayStation 5, it features an integrated low-profile aluminum heat spreader to “dissipate heat and reduce throttling” while being designed to “outperform any Sony PS5 M.2 performance requirements, so large game files load faster than ever, directly from the SSD.”
