This is a great price for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3070 GPU. The RTX 3070 is significantly more powerful than the RTX 3060 Ti or the RTX 2080 SUPER. It is the perfect card for 1440p gaming, even at high refresh rates (the RTX 3080 and higher are generally overkill). It’s paired with an 11th generation Intel Core i7-11700F 8-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and 1TB HDD. The case looks slick too, with its windowed side panel and RGB.

It’s significantly more powerful than the RTX 3070 or the RTX 2080 Ti. It’s not exorbitantly priced like the RTX 3090 and at 4K it only loses out on a few frames per second. In addition to the powerful RTX 3080 GPU, this PC boasts a liquid-cooled AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD.

The MSI “Gaming Z Trio” GeForce RTX 3080 GPU is the least expensive RTX 3080 variant on Amazon right now at a solid price of $729.99. The RTX 3080 really doesn’t need any introduction. This is the de facto card to get if you plan to run current generation games at 4K, since it’s up to 50% faster than the previous generation RTX 2080 SUPER and doesn’t command the exorbitant price of the RTX 3080 Ti or RTX 3090 (both of which are a mere 3%-5% faster in real world performance). It has an HDMI 2.1 port for passing through 4K @ 120Hz, which it has the power to drive even with resource hungry games like Elden Ring.

MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU for $859.99

MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB Video Card

The RTX 3080 Ti had previously been maligned as a “poor value” compared to the RTX 3080 and that’s because of one justifiable reason: it’s MSRP of $1100. That made it a whopping $400 more expensive than an RTX 3080. At 4K resolution, an RTX 3080 Ti represents a 10% performance increase over an RTX 3080, and that certainly wasn’t worth $400.

Fast forward to today and Amazon has the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti for $859.99. That’s only $130 more than the lowest priced RTX 3080, and now the performance increase is actually quite tempting, especially if you’re gaming on a 4K monitor. If you’re running games at 4K, with an RTX 3080 you’ll be hovering at that threshold between good fps (50fps) and great fps (100+fps) in many newer games and that 10% speed bump from the RTX 3080 Ti could make all the difference in the world.
