Early Black Friday gaming PC deals are in full effect right now at Dell, with the company promising the 'lowest prices of the year'. You can currently pick up an RTX 3060 Ti-enabled Alienware Aurora R12, our number one pick for best gaming PC, for its historic lowest price yet. It normally retails for $2,000, but it's currently selling for just $1,371.99 - for a full $628 off the MSRP. 

We normally see Alienware Aurora R12 gaming PC deals offering the GTX 1660 GPU for around this price point which means you're getting excellent value here. However, if you are looking for something a little cheaper, you'll find a build featuring a GTX 1660 Super is selling for just $1,224.99 (reduced down from $1,600) Both machines offer fantastic value for money, though you're missing out on the newest Nvidia technology with a GTX card as opposed to what's currently possible through the latest RTX GPUs - something to keep in mind when making your choice here. 

We hardly ever see RTX 3060 PCs retail for under $1,500, especially when they are made by reliable manufacturers such as Alienware. Today's early Black Friday gaming PC deals are a rare opportunity to experience the glory of ray tracing, DLSS, and Nvidia Reflex (just to name a few features), at an aggressive entry-level price point. You'll find both of these offers listed below, with more gaming PC deals available further down the page.
