Best Buy's featuring a ton of great gaming laptop deals this week, including this MSI GF65 for $899 (was $1099) (opens in new tab) - one of the cheapest we've ever seen with an RTX 3060 graphics card.

Not only does this one have a very decent GPU for the price, but the Intel Core i5-10500H processor, 512GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM ensure great bang for the buck performance at 1080p resolution. While it's not the first time this particular machine has gone on sale, this is a match for the cheapest price, and it's an easy recommendation if you're looking for outright value.

For a performance boost, we'd also recommend upgrading the single-channel 8GB of RAM to a dual-channel 16GB setup. It sounds complicated, but it's an easy and reasonably cheap upgrade that can help squeeze out those few extra frames from your machine. Do that, and you'll turn an already solid machine for 1080p gaming into a little powerhouse for under $1,000. 

Now, if you want even more power, then we've rounded up a few more gaming laptop deals at Best Buy just down below. If you're visiting from outside the US, you'll also find a quick selection of today's best deals in your region.
