Dell Deal Alert: Alienware Aurora RTX 3060 gaming PC for $1199.99, RTX 3060 Ti for $1309.99

Dell Home has a few new Alienware Aurora gaming PC deals this week. Win an Alienware Aurora R10 (Ryzen Edition) RTX 3060 Gaming PC for just $1199.99. That’s over $100 less than the cheapest Alienware RTX 3060 PC we saw last week. That’s more than enough for most games, but if you want something with more headroom, there’s also an RTX 3060 Ti-equipped gaming PC for not much more. These offers will expire by the end of the week.

While the RTX 3060 is a good card for 1080p gaming, the RTX 3060 Ti is a noticeably faster card. In fact, the RTX 3070 isn’t much better, and most of the time the RTX 3060 Ti is recommended over the RTX 3070 in terms of price versus performance. This card is powerful enough to handle gaming at 1080p or 1440p, even if you’re aiming for 144fps. It’s about as powerful as the previous-gen RTX 2080 SUPER.

The RTX 3080 is far more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only (very slightly) more powerful cards, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. Depending on the configuration you choose, the RTX 3080 comes paired with an AMD Ryzen 7, Ryzen 9, or 11th Gen Intel Core i9 processor, all of which are top-notch processors for gaming and workstation applications. Each configuration has been upgraded with liquid cooling for the processor and a powerful 1000W power supply.

New version

After much anticipation, Dell is now offering the Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED Gaming Monitor for $1299.99 on its website. While by no means cheap, this is the very first QD-OLED monitor we’ve seen and so the price is surprisingly reasonable for the new technology. No doubt due to the hype, there were some stockouts throughout the day, so don’t hesitate if you’ve been waiting for this release. The estimated delivery date has already been extended to April 30.

QD-OLED technology was a big hit at this year’s CES and Samsung won the ‘Best of Innovation 2022’ award for it. The QD OLED panel uses quantum dot technology to more efficiently produce higher peak brightness levels compared to traditional OLED TVs without losing the color accuracy and range and wide viewing angles that OLEDs are known for. Although Samsung is the one who made known the new technology, it is Alienware who will first delegate it to the consumer market with this AW3423DW monitor.
