It’s really, really hard to find RTX graphics cards these days. There doesn’t seem to be any relief in sight, either. Unless you want to pay exorbitant prices on eBay, your next best bet is to get one in a prebuilt system where at least the extra price covers some great features. Today at HP you can configure the HP Pavilion gaming desktop with a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card and save 10% off the total price when you use the code HP21BTS10 during checkout. In order to make the card work, you’ll have to upgrade the chassis and power supply as well, bringing the total to $1,229.99. With the code, you only pay $1,106.99.
I also recommend upgrading the RAM because you can double it from 8GB to 16GB for just $100 more, which is a value price and brings the total to $1,196.99.
By default, this PC comes with an Intel Core i5 11400 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB solid state drive. There are some upgradeable options there in the RAM and SSD areas, but when it comes to storage you’re probably better off upgrading it yourself later. The processor has speeds up to 4.4GHz.
It also comes with Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2 by default but can be upgraded for a few bucks more. You’ll get an HP wired keyboard and optical mouse with the PC as well. The system comes with Windows 10 Home for the operating system, and you’ll be able to upgrade that to Windows 11 for free.
