Black Friday 2022 is shaping up to be a good season for gaming PC deals. That’s because this will be the first Black Friday where RTX 30 series video cards aren’t marked up above MSRP. Lower prices on video cards also mean lower prices on pre-built gaming PCs equipped with the same GPUs. Also. with video card supply no longer an issue, you will be able to order a gaming pc and expect to receive it within a very reasonable time frame.

Walmart doesn’t have too many Black Friday gaming PC deals, but the ones they do have are pretty good. You’ll find some great deals on prebuilt gaming PCs from IBUYPOWER.

Dell Black Friday Gaming PC Deals

The Dell Black Friday sale includes deals on both the Alienware Aurora and Dell XPS gaming PCs. The Alienware Aurora definitely has gaming in its DNA; it’s sleek, shiny, colorful, and includes more customization options and better cooling than XPS desktops to make your ultimate tricked-out gaming PC. The XPS, on the other hand, boasts a simpler, more understated design with fewer options, but at an extremely reasonable price. In terms of gaming performance, both will do the job very well.

HP Gaming PC deals

These are the redesigned HP ENVY and OMEN models for 2022. With the exception of the very cheap sub-$1,000 HP Pavilion RTX 3060 gaming PC, the rest of these configurations are again equipped with best-in-class 12th gen. Intel Alder Lake processors. Some of these configurations can be customized; the upgrades we’ve chosen emphasize harder-to-do-it-yourself components like the CPU and GPU, while the RAM and storage options are completely stock. That’s because it’s often a much cheaper route to find the best deal on your own RAM and SSD and then install it yourself.

The 2022 OMEN 45L is HP’s flagship gaming PC. We haven’t really seen any mainstream vendor have a more robust cooling system than what we see here. The 45L is a bulky chassis with three intake fans for excellent airflow. Even more impressive is the powerful 240mm liquid cooling system (upgradable to 360mm for $80) mounted in its own space at the top of the case, called the “Cryo Chamber”. It allows for cooling that rivals enthusiast DIY systems.

New Release: Alienware Aurora R15 Intel Core i9 Raptor Lake GeForce RTX 4090 Gaming PC

New release

Alienware Aurora R15 13th Gen Intel Core i7-13900KF RTX 4090 Gaming PC with Cryo-Tech Liquid Cooling and 1350 W Power Deliver

New for the 2022-2023 season, the Alienware Aurora R15 is the first Dell PC ever to feature both a 13th Gen Intel Raptor Lake processor and RTX 40 series GPU. The Intel Core i9-13900KF boasts a turbo-boosted clock speed of 5.8 GHz and a whopping 24 cores and 32 threads. It’s certainly more powerful than the i9 Alder Lake, and it gives AMD’s flagship AMD Ryzen 9 7950X a run for its money.

The RTX 4090 is by far the most powerful video card you can get right now. No other GPU, either from NVIDIA or from AMD, comes close. For reference, the RTX 4090 is about 110% faster at 4K gaming than the already impressive RTX 3080. It’s about 60% faster than the previous king, the RTX 3090 Ti. It could very well be the single biggest performance upgrade within a single generation gap for the GeForce series of cards.

Need to upgrade your gaming PC?

The answer, of course, depends entirely on your situation. But in terms of technical advancements, both the newer CPUs and newer GPUs this time around are significant improvements over their predecessors.

Gaming CPUs to consider

The Intel Core i7 Alder Lake CPU is Intel’s 12th gen processor and a pretty significant jump in power compared to any of the previous Intel chips. It’s certainly one of the best upgrades you can make on the Intel platform, especially considering that most of the previous Core i7 revisions have been incremental. There’s an even newer processor out now, the 13th generation Raptor Lake, but it’s too new to see any good deals on this CPU, and the improvement over Alder Lake isn’t worth the price.

On the AMD side, the Ryzen 7000 series processors are also a noticeable step up. However, these are the latest generation of processors and will not be on sale as easily as the AMD 6000 and 5000 series CPUs. On that note, AMD 6000 is just an incremental upgrade over the 5000 series and you should consider getting one or the other depending on the deals available.

Gaming GPUs to consider

The RTX 30 series video card is a huge improvement over the RTX 20 series video card. The RTX 3060 Ti, for example, a “mid-range” card, is just as powerful as the RTX 2080 SUPER, the “high-end” cards of the previous generations. If you own a video card before that generation, then this will probably be your best upgrade you can make. Sure, the RTX 40 series cards that just came out are even better, but with the cheapest RTX 40 series card starting at over $1000, the value proposition just isn’t there.

AMD has excellent video cards. The AMD Radeon RX 6850 XT is slightly slower than the RTX 3080, and the RX 6700 XT is slightly slower than the RTX 3070, but these cards lack DLSS and underperform in raytracing performance. That said, gaming PCs equipped with these AMD cards can potentially cost several hundred dollars less than their NVIDIA equivalents. You shouldn’t count them out if you’re going for the most bang for your buck.
