The Dell Black Friday deals are steadily trickling in, and there’s finally a good deal on an Alienware gaming PC. Dell has the Alienware Aurora R13 gaming desktop PC equipped with an Intel Core i7-12700 processor and RTX 3060 Ti graphics card for only $1299.99, a price drop of nearly $600 and the best Alienware deal we’ve seen so far for Black Friday.

New Alienware Aurora R13 Intel Core i7-12700 Alder Lake RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for $1299.99

The full specs on this rig include a 12th gen Intel Core i7-12700F Alder-Lake 12-core processor, 16GB of DDR5-4400MHz RAM, 512GB SSD, and the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU. The RTX 3060 Ti is about as powerful as the previous generation’s RTX 2080 SUPER. This is the best card for a 1080p gaming setup since it will run pretty much anything at 144Hz or higher, but it has more than enough chops to handle 1440p gaming as well.

The Intel Core i7 Alder Lake CPU is Intel’s 12th gen processor and a rather significant leap in power compared to any of the previous Intel chips. It’s definitely one of the best upgrades you could make on the Intel platform, especially considering most of the previous Core i7 revisions have been incremental. One of the disadvantages of jumping to the Intel Alder Lake chip is that it requires a brand new LGA1700 and benefits from new DDR5 RAM as well. For a DIY builder that has old components, that shoots up the overall cost of building a new PC. Fortunately, if you go the prebuilt route, all of that is taken care of for you. The Alienware PC has an LGA1700 Intel Z960 chipset motherboard that supports the Alder Lake CPU as well as PCI-E 5.0 for your RTX 30 series video card and beyond.
