It’s one of the cheapest RTX 3080 PCs we’ve ever seen
Best Buy’s Memorial day gaming PC deals feature some of the cheapest prices that we’ve found on RTX 30 series hardware, including the RTX 3080-enabled Asus ROG Gaming Desktop for only $1,599 (was $2,100) (opens in new tab)
This is a rate that we rarely ever see on RTX 3080 PCs, that normally sell in the price range of around $1,950 or so at the very least depending on the manufacturer. It’s worth remembering that Asus is one of the best gaming PC brands, so you’re getting a quality machine at a budget price, and that’s what makes this particular Memorial day gaming PC deal so competitive. 
More specifically, there are no corners cut in order to keep the price down. Unlike other cheaper RTX 3080 PCs, that go south of the aforementioned price range, these machines tend to use older processors and less storage for your money. Not so with the Asus ROG Gaming Desktop, with its Intel Core i7-11700KF and a 512GB SSD + 2TB HDD combo. 
We’re also rounding up a few more exceptional Memorial Day gaming PC deals below, including aggressive prices on the likes of the Alienware Aurora line and affordably priced models from MSI and CyberPowerPC, too. You can find more information further down the page, and if you’re after more hardware offers, we’re also bringing you the best Memorial Day gaming laptop deals as well.
