The 11th Generation i5 processor and the GTX 1650 make the perfect pair for 1080p medium gaming and give you a great starting point for your PC gaming journey.

We recommend leveraging your savings to pick up the Western Digital 1TB WD Green SN350 NVMe SSD for $70 at Amazon. This would be a great addition to your new desktop and deliver an extra 1TB of storage, which would bring the total available space to 1.5TB in the system. That’s plenty to keep games installed so you don’t have to re-download often and being M.2, there’s no cables to connect as it simply goes into the spare slot on the motherboard.
Don’t forget that you can save 20% on HTC’s Vive Cosmos Elite VR headset, which is down to a new all-time low of $359. Regularly $449, this discount is quite notable as we’ve never seen a premium VR headset. Then, swing by our PC gaming guide to find more ways to save on upgrading your desk setup.
