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.

If you insist on getting the fastest video card around, this is one of the only pre-built RTX 3090 gaming PCs you’ll find for under $3,000. The RTX 3090 is only marginally faster than the RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti, but it’s a far superior graphics workstation card thanks to its whopping 24GB of GDDR6X RAM (for comparison, the RTX 3080 only half of it). It’s paired with a liquid-cooled 12-core AMD Ryzen 9 5900 processor, 32GB of system RAM, and a 1TB SSD.

To note: This configuration comes standard with a 1TB hard drive. We recommend upgrading to a 512GB SDD, either through Dell (+$80) or on your own.

The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to RTX 2060 SUPER and nearly matches RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. It will easily handle all your games up to 1440p. If that’s all you need, you’ll still save nearly $200 over the price of the RTX 3070 config. It’s paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512 SSD Go.

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.

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.

New Alienware Aurora R13 2021/2022 Gaming PC

Unceremoniously dubbed the “R13”, Dell’s new flagship gaming PC features a number of aesthetic, quality of life and performance improvements over its predecessors. In terms of future-proofing, the Alienware Aurora R13 is the first Alienware PC to feature the latest 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake processors. This is paired with a Z690 based motherboard that accepts DDR5 RAM. This proves that DDR5 RAM actually exists in nature. Your video card options are also excellent; choose your choice of video card from the RTX 30 series, from the RTX 3060 Ti all the way up to the RTX 3090, at your expense of course. Perhaps the best news? According to Dell’s website, these configurations ship in early March.

New Dell XPS 2021/2022 Gaming PC

Until recently, the only PC option from Dell that offered an Intel Alder Lake processor, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30-series video cards came in the form of the Alienware Aurora R13 gaming PC listed above. At a cost of around $2900 for an Intel Core i7 RTX 3080 combo, it’s out of reach for many people. Now, Dell has extended similar build options to its new Dell XPS 2021-2022 gaming PC. Compared to the previous model, the new Dell XPS chassis is bulkier (27L vs. 19L) and offers more space for the CPU and GPU area for much better airflow. This is important because the new Alder Lake processors can heat up under intense loads. Like the Alienware Aurora R13, the new Dell XPS PC features a Z690 motherboard that supports the latest 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake processors, DDR5 RAM and RTX 30 series video cards over PCI-E 5.0. These configurations should also be delivered in mid-February.
