The RTX 4070 Ti is barely a month old but we're already starting to see hefty price drops on gaming PCs including this beefy new GPU from Nvidia.

Right now, for example, you can get a massive $500 off a Skytech Chronos pre-built gaming PC at Newegg - a machine that's not only featuring an RTX 4070 Ti graphics card, but an Intel Core i7-12700F processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. These are some awesome specs for the money and absolutely worth considering if you're on the hunt for a higher-end gaming PC deal

Gamers looking for a high-end machine on a reasonable budget will be hard-pressed to beat this massive $500 off deal on a SkyTech Chronos gaming PC at Newegg this week. Not only do you get one of the latest graphics cards on the market, but a generous 1TB SSD and beefy Core i7 processor means you'll be all set for some serious performance at 1440p and even 4K.

Deal score: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Reasons to buy

  • Excellent high-end performance
  • Latest RTX 4070 Ti graphics card
  • Great value at $500 off

By far and away the biggest attraction with this gaming PC deal at Newegg is the RTX 4070 Ti graphics card, which is currently one of the best-performing GPUs on the market. For context, while it's not the highest-end card in the latest RTX 4000 series of cards from Nvidia, it's a component that can outperform the previous RTX 3080 by about 20 percent at 1440p resolution. It's also backed up by a really decent CPU in this machine, giving you great performance straight out of the box.

Reasons to avoid

  • Overkill for 1080p gaming
  • DDR4 RAM

At $1,799, this Skytech Chronos is still on the pricey end (even after a $500 price cut) and one that budget gamers will likely want to skip over. For context, the RTX 4070 Ti is absolutely overkill if you're just a casual gamer who wants something to cover the basics or play at 1080p resolutions. Finally, this machine features a slightly older set of DDR4 RAM, which isn't quite as speedy as the DDR5 sets that are now becoming commonplace on the best gaming PCs

Alternatively, those on more of a budget could consider this reasonably priced Alienware Aurora R14.
