Those on the hunt for a cheap gaming PC this week should check out this HP Omen desktop for $699.99 (was $1,349.99) at Best Buy.

Not only is this machine almost half-price right now, but the combination of an RX 6600XT, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, and Ryzen 5-5600H makes it a superb mid-range buy that doesn't completely break the bank. 

The RX 6600XT graphics card in this machine - which is roughly equivalent to an Nvidia RTX 3060 - is going to get you great frame rates at 1080p, maxing out plenty of the latest titles. Getting a full 16GB suite of RAM and a 1TB SSD is also fantastic as you'll be able to skip over the usual upgrades needed with cheap gaming PC deals. Arguably, the only amendments this machine would benefit from is a better CPU cooler or more case fans - and even then, it's a fairly minor upgrade. 

Overall, this HP Omen is likely to be one of the best cheap gaming PC deals you'll find this side of Black Friday in November and a real scoop if you're on a budget.
