The Dell Black Friday sale includes deals on both Alienware Aurora and Dell XPS gaming PCs.

HP Gaming PC Deals

These are the redesigned HP ENVY and OMEN models for 2022. With the exception of the very affordable sub-$1K HP Pavilion RTX 3060 gaming PC, the rest of these configurations are once again equipped with best-in-class 12th gen Intel Alder Lake processors. Some of these configurations can be customized; the upgrades we’ve chosen emphasize harder-to-DIY components like the CPU and GPU, while keeping the RAM and storage options stock. That’s because it’s often a much cheaper route to find the best deal on your own RAM and SSD and then install it yourself.

The 2022 OMEN 45L is HP’s flagship gaming PC. We haven’t really seen any mainstream vendor have a more robust cooling system than what we see here. The 45L is a bulky chassis with three intake fans for excellent airflow. Even more impressive is the powerful 240mm liquid cooling system (upgradable to 360mm for $80) mounted in its own space on top of the case, called the “Cryo Chamber”. It allows for cooling that rivals enthusiast DIY systems.

New release

Alienware Aurora R15 13th Gen Intel Core i7-13900KF RTX 4090 Gaming PC with Cryo-Tech Liquid Cooling and 1350 W Power Supply

New for the 2022-2023 season, the Alienware Aurora R15 is the first Dell PC ever equipped with both a 13th Gen Intel Raptor Lake processor and RTX 40 series GPU. The Intel Core i9-13900KF has a turbo-boosted clock speed of 5.8 GHz and a whopping 24 cores and 32 threads. It’s definitely more powerful than the i9 Alder Lake, and it gives AMD’s flagship AMD Ryzen 9 7950X a lot of bang for its buck.

The RTX 4090 is without a doubt the most powerful video card you can get right now. No other GPU, either from NVIDIA or from AMD, comes close. For reference, the RTX 4090 is about 110% faster at 4K gaming than the already impressive RTX 3080. It’s about 60% faster than the previous king, the RTX 3090 Ti. It may very well be the single biggest performance upgrade within a single generation gap for the GeForce card line.

Should you upgrade your gaming PC?

Of course, the answer depends entirely on your situation. In terms of technical advancements, however, both the newer CPUs and newer GPUs this time around are significant improvements over their predecessors.

Gaming CPUs to consider

The Intel Core i7 Alder Lake CPU is Intel’s 12th generation processor and a pretty significant leap in power compared to some of the previous Intel chips. It’s definitely one of the best upgrades you can make on the Intel platform, especially considering that most of the previous Core i7 revisions have been incremental. There’s an even newer processor out now, the 13th gen Raptor Lake, but it’s too new to see any good deals on this processor, and the improvement over Alder Lake isn’t worth the price premium.

On the AMD side, the Ryzen 7000 series processors are also a noticeable step up. However, these are the latest generation of processors and are not going to sell as easily as the AMD 6000 and 5000 series CPUs. On that note, AMD 6000 is just an incremental upgrade over the 5000 series and you should consider getting one or the other depending on available deals.

Gaming GPUs to consider

The video cards in the RTX 30 series are a huge improvement over the video cards in the RTX 20 series. The RTX 3060 Ti, for example, a “mid-range” card, is as powerful as the RTX 2080 SUPER, the previous generation’s “high-end” card. If you own a graphics card before that generation, this will probably be the best upgrade you can make. Of course the RTX 40 series cards that just came out are an even better performer, but with the cheapest RTX 40 series card starting at over $1000, the value proposition just isn’t there.

AMD has decent video cards. The AMD Radeon RX 6850 XT is a bit slower than the RTX 3080 and the RX 6700 XT is a bit slower than the RTX 3070, but these cards lack DLSS and underperform in ray tracing performance. That said, gaming PCs equipped with these AMD cards can potentially cost several hundred dollars cheaper than their NVIDIA equivalents. You shouldn’t count them out if you’re taking to get the most bang for your buck.
