There comes a time in every gamer’s life when one must ask themselves: Is my PC setup working for me? And if you find that the answer is no, then it’s probably time to upgrade your gaming rig. Now the only issue is coming up with the dough and sifting through all the gaming PC deals out there. Fortunately, your pals at Digital Trends are always on the lookout for the best promotions, and we found this killer deal at Best Buy.

For a limited time, you can purchase the HP Omen 25L Gaming Desktop for $1,350. Normally priced at $1,650, you can go ahead and put that $300 you saved toward a great monitor by checking out all the best monitor deals we found this week.

Why you should buy the HP Omen 25L

When it comes to any PC, it pays to know what’s running the show underneath the hood. In the case of the HP Omen, the desktop is powered by an Intel Core i7-14700F with 32GB of DDR5 memory. All your GPU needs are handled by an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, and you’ll have up to 2TB of internal storage to work with. Those are solid numbers on paper, but how does it translate to reality? Quite nicely.

As any PC gamer will tell you, lightning-fast performance is key, especially when playing demanding online titles like Helldivers 2 and Counter-Strike 2. So the fact that the Omen’s i7 CPU contains 20 cores and reaches top clock speeds of 5.4GHz is pretty extraordinary. Even the most action-heavy sequences from the most bandwidth-hungry games should look amazing; both from a picture quality and frame-to-frame point of view. 

As far as ports go, the HP Omen is equipped with everything from USB-C and USB-A inputs to Ethernet and 3.5mm auxiliary for a gaming headset. HP also went out of its way to deliver a chassis that optimizes heat dissipation and overall noise. 

Not every gaming PC sale is as good as this one, and Best Buy deals only tend to last for a week at most. If you think now may be the time to invest in an updated rig, don’t hesitate to do so!

The 5 best gaming laptop deals in Dell’s 4th of July sale
The Dell G15 gaming laptop powered by AMD Ryzen.

While gaming desktops are great, they don't have the same excellent portability as gaming laptops. So, if you've always wanted one of the latter, then these 4th of July sales are the perfect opportunity to grab yourself one. Of course, if you do want to go for a more traditional desktop option that's still from Dell, then these Alienware 4th of July deals are worth taking a look at, while our roundup of the best gaming laptop 4th of July deals should give you a few more options on top of that.
G15 Gaming Laptop -- $1,000, was $1,150

The Dell G15 is probably one of the most popular gaming laptops on the market when it comes to budget-oriented options. In this configuration, you get a solid RTX 406o, which should easily handle the FHD resolution and 165Hz refresh rate of the monitor with minimal graphical compromises. The Intel Core i7-13650HX is also a reasonably powerful CPU that will handle most games just fine, and productivity tasks should be a relative breeze to do on the G15. Similarly, the 16GB of DDR5 RAM means you get some good speed and capacity for having apps and tabs open, while the 1TB SSD is a good start and will probably be enough for a year or so of gaming before you may have to start deleting games or thinking of expansion with an external hard drive deal.

Best Buy is selling this Lenovo Chromebook for $229 during 4th of July sales

While some of the best laptops on the market can play the latest AAA games, that's often way too much power for most folks, and they often cost an arm and a leg. Add to that the fact that Windows 11 likes to take a chunk out of the RAM to run, and you start running into issues where even budget-oriented laptops are quite expensive to stay above a minimum specification bar. Luckily, there is a solution in the form of Chromebooks, which run their own, more lightweight operating system, so you can get some really great stuff for cheap. In fact, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3i is currently on sale at Best Buy for the 4th of July, and it's going for just$229 rather than the usual $349 that it usually costs.

 Why you should buy the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook
Because ChromeOS is a lot lighter than Windows, it means that Chromebooks like the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3i can get away with having lower-end specs, such as with the Intel N100 CPU. It's a lower-end processor that wouldn't work well for a regular laptop, but this Chromebook will handle most day-to-day and general-use tasks without too much hassle. Granted, the 4GB of RAM is a bit on the lower end, even for a Chromebook, but it's not as debilitating, and you'll still get some pretty good use out of it. That said, the 64GB of storage is very low, and you'll likely have to supplement it with one of these external hard drive deals, if you don't have one already.
