Playing modern games on a custom-built desktop PC is one of the best ways to experience gaming. That’s why we tend to look for the best CPU to run our gaming system. But with a lot of high-end gaming CPUs on the market, it can be hard to pick one that suits you best. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, you’ll want to check out this Dell XPS 8930 Gaming Desktop Computer (8th Gen), which is $200 off from Walmart. Normally $1,400, a cool 14% discount brings the price down to $1,200. We’ve also found some of the best laptop deals and tablet deals if you’re looking for something more portable.

This Dell XPS 8930 Gaming Desktop unit features an Intel Core i7-8700 processor boasts six cores, and it can reach a stock speed of 3.2 GHz and be boosted up to 4.6 GHz. As for the graphics card, it is equipped with Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM. This CPU has a 1 TB HDD and 16 GB Optane Memory, and runs on the Windows 10 Operating System. This PC works as an entry-level gaming PC, or even as a simple home workstation.

 

It also has a decent selection of ports including two USB-C ports, HDMI, a display port, Gigabit Ethernet, mic-in, and a 3-in-1 SD card reader. Dell also put ports on the front, which makes plugging in a flash drive and smartphone quick and easy. A SuperMulti DVD burner allows you to read and write to different optical CD and DVD media.

It can handle pretty much every game you can throw at it and its performance is smooth. Some games can even be on Ultra or Extreme graphics settings at 60 fps or higher and still be playable. In addition to gaming, it can also be used for high-quality 3D rendering and photo editing.

You can also store more files, movies, music, games, and much more thanks to its massive 1TB hard drive capacity. This PC also includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity so you can link to keyboards, mice, and headsets wirelessly using Bluetooth.

This Dell XPS 8930 Gaming Desktop Computer is now available from Walmart for only $1,200. For more information, see our review of this model.

For the longest time, the top slot of our best laptops collection was filled by a Dell XPS laptop, specifically a Dell XPS 13 or Dell XPS 15. They're a pair of favored laptops from a really favored brand around here and an instant recommend when someone wants a laptop. In fact, you'll still find one of these models on the list today. But new generations are sprouting from the Earth and the Dell XPS 14 and 16 are the new face of the XPS line. What that means for the future of Dell laptops and the Dell XPS line is yet to be seen. What it means for the patient consumer is a different story, however. Now is the time to get deep discounts on what was, until just recently, one of the best laptops around. For example, if you tap the button below, you'll find a Dell XPS 15 that's $745 off, knocking its price down to $2,149 from $2,894. Keep reading for a refresher on why we're so excited about this.

Why you should buy the Dell XPS 15
This Dell XPS 15 rocks the same general design that the Dell XPS 15 line has for quite some time, with a solid chassis and responsive keyboard. This version, which has an OLED display is described, in our Dell XPS 15 review, as being a screen that "provides the colors and contrast to please productivity users, creators, and media consumers alike." It should be noted that, in this very same review, the top complaint included price (alleviated by the sale) and a lack of design changes from previous models (not a true negative on well-designed products). All in all, if you haven't had a Dell XPS 15 yet, meaning you aren't itching for a significant upgrade on your existing Dell XPS 15, this is a very solid buy.
