If you've been on the fence about PC gaming, but you aren't willing to spend thousands of dollars to find out, then the Dell G5 could be what you've been searching for, especially with such a substantial saving on the table.

Not only is the Dell G5 a similar size to the current generation of consoles - Xbox Series X and PS5 - but, with the discount, it is competitively priced with them. This means that if you're after a computer to hook up in your living room for big-screen gaming - you could do much worse.

It may be a little long in the tooth these days, but the Nvidia GTX 1650 Super GPU is still a competent card that, in this configuration, will be easily able to play popular games such as Call of Duty: Warzone, Apex Legends, and Fortnite in medium to high graphics settings in at least 30FPS or above.

The important thing to remember with a pre-built gaming rig - such as the G5 - is that they are modular and upgradable by nature, meaning that you have the option to slide another stick of RAM in - or trade up your GPU with relative ease.
