It was a surprise to absolutely no one that there were no graphics card deals on this Amazon Prime Day. They rarely appear almost every year, but this year the shortage of silicon has made any GPU approaching the MSRP a thing of the century. In short, there are basically no graphics cards, and if there were, the asking price would be the opposite of a bargain.
That’s not to say you can’t get AMD or Nvidia graphics cards. Not just as a DIY builder or updater. You can take them as part of a complete system and there are decent prices, although the "deal" can be a bit strong, depending on what you want to buy.
There is also the question of how long you can wait to deliver your new system. A lot of well-respected OEMs and OEMs cite months to get machines to buyers, and in the meantime that doesn't include random delays.
That's why these two iBuyPower systems are so remarkable. Both machines not only feature AMD’s latest graphics cards, but both are built under the company’s two-day rush service. Therefore, if you place your order today, they will accompany you before the end of the week. This is pretty amazing considering the state of the market.
iBuyPower Gaming RDY EMRRR206 | Ryzen 7 3700X | Radeon RX 6700 XT |
$ 2,039 $ 1,899 to iBuyPower (save $ 140)
This system is built around an AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT and an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-wire 16-wire. It’s not the latest chip in AMD’s CPU arsenal, but it’s still an equally powerful offering and here it cools down with a 120mm AIO. The rest of the specs are also solid, with 16GB of RAM and the combined drive of a 512GB SSD for the operating system that joins a 1TB hard drive for the growing Steam library . See offer
iBuyPower Creator RDY LCIIBR203 | Intel Core i9 | Radeon RX 6900 XT |
$ 3,799 $ 3,599 at iBuyPower (save $ 200)
The second system is the theme of dreams, as the AMD Radeon TX 6900 XT is paired with Intel’s latest Core i9 11900KF. This chip is kept cooled by a 240mm ARGB liquid cooler and is housed in a Lian Li Lancool One RGB chassis. You’re looking at 32GB of DDR-3200MHz RAM and a 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD on this system as well. This, as its name suggests, is more for creators, but we can still dream of players.See offer
If none of these machines appeal, you can use the one on the site Easy Builder to help you assemble any system you have in mind. Start by offering eight different games so you can focus on your creation, from Fortnite to League of Legends, what kind of resolution you want, and what your budget is. The recommendations aren’t bad either, though keep an eye out for this delivery date, because you’ll arrive in late July before you know it.
