$1,399.99 $949.99 at Newegg (save $550) (opens in new tab)
OK, here's one heck of a deal for an RTX 3060 Ti rig, $100 cheaper than regular 3060 PCs. Inside you'll find seductive RTX 3060 Ti GPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.
Remember when people were paying $1,500 for an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card in summer 2021? Heck, it was only earlier this year people were still stumping up about a grand. Well, now you can get a whole 3060 Ti-based gaming PC with a decent Intel CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD for $949 thanks to Cyber Monday gaming PC deals (opens in new tab). Give it up for the Yeyian Katana X10, from Newegg.
Well, thanks to Cyber Monday and the fact that GPU prices have fallen off a cliff this year. For the record, the current cheapest RTX 3060 Ti stand alone card in our Black Friday deals is the MSI Ventus GeForce at $419.99. So, you're paying barely over $500 for the rest of this pre-built rig. Nice.
(Earlier today the Katana X10 was priced at $849, but unfortunately the discount code that took it to that price has since expired. It's a reminder of how quickly things happen on Black Friday and Cyber Monday—but even without that code, this is still a really solid deal.)
But what are you actually getting besides the all-important Nvidia graphics? This Newegg supplied and shipped PC is running an Intel Core i5 11400F CPU. It's a couple of generations old. But it still benefits from the very modern Rocket Lake core architecture that's only just behind the latest Raptor Lake chips for single-threaded performance per clock.
The 11400F also packs fully six cores and peaks at 4.4GHz. In short, there's plenty of CPU grunt to keep up with the RTX 3060 Ti graphics. Elsewhere, there's 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, a 500GB NVMe SSD and a 650W 80+Gold power supply, all plugged into a B560 motherboard. Overall, the specs are pretty nicely balanced to deliver decent frames rates at an extremely competitive price.
What's more, it's built around a slick looking Yeyian Blade case with a nifty tempered glass side panel and plenty of RGB-enhanced fans. So it certainly doesn't look like a cheap-specced item.
Ok, it's not absolutely rammed with ports on the rear panel and, likewise, the internal expansion is relatively limited. But unless you're hoping to run the RAID arrays in parallel with a brace of high-end capture cards, the Yeyian Katana X10 almost certainly has your bases covered.
