I have seen this computer appear in stock from time to time, to sell it before I can inform anyone. But hey, let’s try it again, right? If you act fast, you can capture an Asus ROG gaming computer with a GeForce RTX 3070 sitting inside for $ 1,599.99 at Best Buy.
This is not a discounted price, but in this scenario it should be noted only to be in stock. Bonus points if the price is at least within the basic value of what it would cost to do the DIY route, at least when that was an option (technically you can still, but unless you’re very lucky, you’ll end up paying more for the GPU).
Asus ROG Gaming Desktop | Core i7 11700F | GeForce RTX 3070 | 16 GB of RAM | 512 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD | $ 1,599 at Best Buy
There is a high risk that it sells quickly, as it usually does every time Best Buy offers it. A strong overall setup, get it while you can. See offer
In this case, the cost of the parts (and also taking into account the cost of Windows) is quite close to the asking price of Best Buy. It’s still a little higher than building your own in normal times, but only a few hundred dollars (and maybe even less). This is one of the main reasons why this system sells almost as quickly as Best Buy can store it.
He GeForce RTX 3070 is the main selling point, but the CPU isn't too shabby either: it's an 8-core / 16-wire Core i7 11700F processor based on Intel Rocket Lake's state-of-the-art architecture, with a base clock of 2 .5 GHz, maximum turbo 4.9 GHz frequency and 16 MB L3 cache.
Other key specifications include 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and a 512GB SSD paired with a 1TB hard drive. It’s a pretty solid top-down setup.
