You’ll save $854 building an RTX 3080-powered machine from these Memorial Day deals

This is the high-performance RTX 3080-powered machine that the Memorial Day PC gaming deals (opens in new tab) have built. And it’s a hell of a rig. It’s also the first time in two years that we’ve actually been able to build a full gaming PC purely from the seasonal deals. It’s a proper gaming PC as well, so comes with a decent graphics card and not just some depressing respin of an RTX 2060 or something equally unpalatable.

The fact that we can pack it out with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 (opens in new tab), for pretty damned close to the overclocked MSI card’s likely MSRP, is what makes this machine stand out from the crowd. But it’s the pairing with the awesome AMD Ryzen 9 5900X (opens in new tab) processor that puts it above the gaming PC deals (opens in new tab) that have impressed us so far this Memorial Day.
