We're a decent way through May and seeing some of the best RTX 3060 PC deals in quite some time in both the US and UK. While there's representation from brands such as Dell and MSI, the vast majority of machines offering the deepest discounts are those from boutique-built rigs. So, should you be after one of the best gaming PCs on a budget, you can't go too far wrong with any of these. 

The RTX 3060 is the newer of the two graphics cards having been released last year and featuring 12GB VRAM over the RTX 3060 Ti's 8GB. The trade-off, however, is the memory bus size, as the RTX 3060 Ti benefits from far more bandwidth afforded by its 256-bit interface over the newer model's 192-bit memory bus. This means that the RTX 3060 Ti is the overall superior card, especially as far as higher resolutions and frame rates are concerned. Either model can easily be considered one of the best graphics cards for gaming still in 2022.  

RTX 3060 PC deals are a great way to get a stellar rig for a comparatively low cost and high performance, especially if you're intending to game in 1440p. For 4K, though, the RTX 3060 Ti is a very solid performer and fits the bill well if you're economical with those slider settings. 

If you're wanting to cast a wider net, we're also rounding up the best cheap gaming PC deals with options starting at under the $700 mark. Alternatively, you can play the long game and wait until July for the Prime Day PC deals to kick off, where we're expecting decent discounts on both components and prebuilt rigs alike.
