The first big deal of the fall has just dropped…
RTX 3080 gaming PCs continue to be hard to find, which makes a deal like this not only good, but very surprising to see!
Right now, the Alienware Aurora R12 with RTX 3080 is now just $2,155 after a sizeable $334 price cut — making this one of the best gaming PC deals you can get today.

Alienware Aurora R12: was $2,489.99, now $2,155.99 at Dell

We’re confident you’re going to love this system for more reasons beyond the spec list. While we haven’t gone hands-on with this specific model, we did review the Alienware Aurora R11, which shares plenty of similarities with this newer iteration.
The modern, stylish chassis is easy to open and purpose-built for maximum airflow from all angles, which helps manage the temperature and keep your system running at its best. The AlienFX RGB lighting is subtle and adds a bold element to the front of the Aurora 12.
Plus, with all the I/O you need to make this a versatile fit into any setup and minimal bloatware, to that impressively strong gaming performance and a liquid-cooled CPU, this is the enthusiast’s choice.
