Intel processors deliver amazing performance for gaming PCs, especially if you go for the brand’s latest 13th-generation Intel Core processors. You’ll just have to make sure that you pair the Intel processor with sufficient RAM for your needs, as you wouldn’t want to end up with an unbalanced machine. We’ve rounded up the best gaming PC deals featuring Intel processors below, but you have to choose what you want to buy quickly because there’s no telling when the offers will expire.

    AMD processors are generally more affordable options compared to their Intel counterparts for gaming PCs, but that sometimes doesn’t translate to an overall lower price because there are many other components involved. Nevertheless, you can’t go wrong with AMD, and to show you how the brand has closed the gap in its rivalry with Intel, check out the best gaming PC deals featuring AMD processors below.

    • Lenovo Legion Tower 5 Gen 8 (AMD Ryzen 5 7600, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050, 16GB of RAM) — video games at good settings is generally a much more demanding job than most work tasks you’d normally need a computer for, so any gaming computer — even a cheap gaming PC — will be as well-suited for work and study as it is for play. The faster processors and high-speed RAM will make short work of simple tasks like web browsing, word processing, making spreadsheets, and so on, and the discrete GPU is also nice to have for graphical tasks such as video rendering. Another advantage of a desktop PC, particularly one with a graphics card, is the option to create a multi-monitor setup that can increase your productivity (and even a single monitor will still give you more screen real estate than a laptop display).
