Get an HP Gaming PC with RTX 3060 for under $700

With the GPU craze finally coming to an end, gaming PCs are starting to get affordable again. Take, for example, a file HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop, which is currently $699 at Walmart (Opens in a new tab). The device has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, and it usually retails for $899. It’s a decent price cut on a decent device, and should be a good fit for gamers who get their feet wet in the PC gaming scene.

Since this doesn’t come from Amazon — Walmart is offering a discount on the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop — it’s not technically a Prime Day deal. But it is worth thinking about the same.

In terms of specs, the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop offered has an Intel Core i5 CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. It also comes with a wired mouse and keyboard, although these are not gaming peripherals per se. With Windows 11 and a relatively compact frame (19.7 x 15.8 x 11.3 inches, 18 pounds), the Pavilion should fit nicely into most gaming corners.

To be strictly fair, this HP Pavilion model isn’t going to set the gaming world on fire. The GPU is pretty good, especially since Nvidia RTX cards have been hard to find until recently. However, the CPU is half way through, while the RAM is minimal to run many modern games, and the SSD won’t hold many games. On the other hand, $699 isn’t a lot of money to spend on a gaming PC, especially with an existing GPU.

The HP Pavilion should also be a good productivity companion, since it comes with plenty of front USB ports, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and more than enough power to handle everyday web browsing, word processing, and multimedia playback. If you need an everyday machine that can handle some moderate gaming as a bonus, the HP Pavilion might be exactly the deal you’re after.
