The best gaming PC deals ensure that you get great value for money without missing out on excellent hardware.

HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop — $550, was $650

If you’re on a tight budget, the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop might be worth considering. It offers an AMD Ryzen 3 5300G processor along with 8GB of memory plus 256GB of SSD storage. In terms of graphics, it has an AMD Radeon RX 5500 graphics card. Admittedly, Elden Ring‘s minimum system requirements expect 12GB of memory which means — on the surface — the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop doesn’t make the cut. However, many users have reported that the game will run with 8GB of memory, providing you temper your expectations and set things on low. It’s not the ideal way to play Elden Ring but if money is tight and you’re really keen to play the game somehow, the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop is good enough. Besides its core specs, it also comes with Windows 11, an HP 3-in-1 memory card reader, plus 5.1 surround sound.

HP Omen — $1,350, was $1,650

The HP Omen is a pretty powerful gaming desktop that isn’t afraid to show off its powerful looks either. It offers an AMD Ryzen 7 5700G processor along with 16GB of memory plus 1TB of SSD storage. That’s more than sufficient for running Elden Ring plus you have plenty of storage space left to install some other games, too. Its graphics card is an AMD Radeon RX 6700XT meaning it’s more than capable of playing the latest games including Elden Ring, thanks to easily matching its recommended requirements. Each component is well chosen, too, thanks to the graphics card offering 12GB of VRAM while the memory is HyperX — a highly reliable brand in RAM technology. It even comes with a mouse and keyboard although we’d suggest supplying your own. Looking great thanks to its tempered glass side panel, the HP Omen is a great option for the avid player.
