We've found two discounted RTX 3070 gaming PCs today that are great buys if you've found yourself left out in the cold by stupidly high graphics card prices in recent times.
First up, this Asus ROG gaming desktop for $1,549.99 (was $1,649.99) at Best Buy. This one features not only a really, really low price for an RTX 3070 gaming PC but also an Intel Core i7-11700F, 512GB SSD, and 16GB of RAM - decent all-around specs that are great for 1440p gaming.
It also comes in a rather expansive ATX case, which, perhaps not to everyone's taste, will be handy if you're switching out components in the future. Speaking of which, we'd recommend upgrading the CPU cooler on this Asus if you want to squeeze a bit more performance out of it. The stock cooler is fine, but a $50 to $70 aftermarket cooler from, say, Corsair or Cooler Master will help you should you want to overclock your CPU - it'll also look way flashier if that's your thing.
Our second pick for today's RTX 3070 gaming PC deals is this iBuyPower RDY SLHRG216 for $1849 (was $2199). This machine is pricier but comes with an expanded NVMe 1TB SSD, a slicker case (in our opinion), and an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor. Perhaps most importantly, this machine comes installed with its all-in-one liquid cooler for the CPU, which is something they skimped out on with the Asus above. Out of the box, this one should run a bit faster and cooler than the Asus. It does, however, come with a bigger price tag, so the Asus might be a better choice if you're looking for more of a 'do-er upper.'
