After the waltz of gaming laptops, we thought it was important to tell you about desktop PCs as well. In fact, if you want higher performance and have no interest in having a nomadic machine, classic lathes have serious arguments. The editorial team then went around what was available at the time and on which machines we could have had the best deals in this sales period.
Unfortunately, even though the vogue is for home-built PCs, some aren’t comfortable with the idea of building their own machine. And vice versa, if you know how to assemble a machine, there is no guarantee that you have followed the news of the component market, and therefore you need to know what can be put together. To avoid these problems, the editorial team has selected several machines with prices ranging from affordable to very expensive.
Whatever your budget, you can find a shoe that suits you. Of course it also depends on your expectations. There is no need to spend a fortune to have a machine that can deliver good 1080p performance. Conversely, if you want 4K at 144Hz, you’ll need to clear your PEL and be on good terms with your banker.
However, most of the machines remain quite expensive due to the shortage of components that have hit the market since the COVID crisis and the surge in cryptocurrency prices. The good news is that the prices of Bitcoin, Etherum and Monero have dropped dramatically, causing mining profitability to plummet. Clearly, graphics cards are starting to make a comeback, and gamers will finally be able to take advantage of them.
Great bonus for those who join the offer Discount at will, you will benefit from great discounts starting from 149 € of purchase! An opportunity not to be missed.

HP Pavilion TG01: i5-10400F, 8GB RAM, RTX 3060, 256GB SSD
With the popular RTX 3060 12GB GDDR6, this HP branded fixed PC can easily delight many gamers who don’t have a huge budget.
However, we are sorry that the beast only has 8GB of RAM as this is not enough in our opinion. As always with JVTech, we recommend that you opt for computers with at least 16GB of RAM.
In this case, this defect can be fixed simply as you have the chance
add an 8GB RAM stick add-on to this computer.
On the storage side, it is a 256GB SSD that will allow you to organize all your media files.
This machine comes with Windows 10 Home 65-bit already installed, so it is ready to use upon receipt.
In terms of connectivity, you have 3 DisplayPort, 1 Ethernet port, 9 USB inputs including 1 Type C and 1 HDMI port.

ACER Nitro N50: i5-11400F, 16GB RAM, RTX 3060 and 512GB SSD
Here is a perfect machine for those who make light use of their PC, but still want to play at 1080p without having to reduce the graphics options.
In a mini-tower case (with a Micro-ATX motherboard therefore) we find the Intel Core i5-11400F processor. This chip offers us 6 cores and 12 threads with 12 MB of cache memory. In terms of frequencies, this processor will work wonders in games thanks to its high frequencies, as the chip runs at 2.6Ghz knowing it can go up to 4.4Ghz in boost mode.
This processor is supported by 16GB of DDR4 3200Mhz RAM. Attention, the installation is done in 2x 8GB, which means that if you want more, you will have to replace the two DIMMs. Keep in mind, however, that this PC accepts up to 64GB of RAM.
To run your games, Acer has bet on an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, which is more than enough for 1080p, without making any concessions on the graphics options. At 12GB of GDDR6, this graphics card shares the name, but has nothing to do with its laptop-installed counterparts. Clearly, here it will be possible to take advantage of all Nvidia’s technologies such as RTX without making your game unplayable.
The only problem is the presence of a SSD limited to 512GB (by SanDisk), but even in this sales period you can find many more generous models in terms of storage space. Also note that Windows 10 is installed in its home version.
Offered at € 1,069, the Nitro will drop to € 969 once store code 100D999CD is used (only for Cdiscount members at will)

PC kit to mount MSI: i5-12400F, 8GB of RAM, RTX 3060 and 512GB SSD
Please note that this is not a real assembled PC, but a component kit that allows you to assemble your gaming machine yourself.The advantage is that we only have beautiful MSI parts that can be found sold individually. Clearly, this will save you from ending up with unnamed components, such as those often found in fully assembled PCs from some brands.
It will therefore be necessary to know how to assemble a PC, but also to install your own operating system, since the hard disk is not formatted. The data sheet is still attractive for those who want to set up a nice game machine for 1080p. We take advantage of a brand new Intel Core i5-12400F which is cooled by a nice MSI Coreliquid 240R V2 AIO water cooling system. This chip is backed by 16GB Corsair Vengence LPX 3200Mhz DDR4 RAM, with an MSI Spatium M390 SSD for storage, knowing that everything is installed on an MSI Pro B660-A motherboard.
The graphics are entrusted to an Nvidia graphics card: the MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ventus 2X. He’s a handsome baby whose generous heatsink will also be able to overclock frequencies. To ensure flawless stability, everything is powered by an 80+ Bronze certified MSI MAG A650BN block. Everything will be mounted in an MSI Mag Forge 111R case.
The icing on the cake, all of this comes with a complete peripheral package that includes an MSI Vigor GK30 keyboard, an MSI Immerse GH20 headset / microphone, an MSI Clutch GM08 mouse, and an MSI Agility GD20 mouse pad.

Cybertek Marauder Gaming PC: Ryzen 7 5800X, 32GB DDR4, RTX 3080 and 1TB SSD
This is no longer a PC of an assembler, but a PC assembled by a distributor. In this case it is Cybertek, a well-known supplier for computer hardware enthusiasts. However, this PC will be delivered turnkey, assembled, tested and with Windows 10 installed on the SSD.
Configuration-wise, we go here to the max, with enough to play at 1440p without making any concessions. It will also be possible to play in 4K as long as you make some concessions on the graphics options, or on the framerate. This also explains the price.
The Marauder incorporates a SMI B550 Gaming Edge motherboard into an NZXT chassis that houses an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor, one of the current gaming benchmarks. The chip is cooled by a BeQuiet! Dark Rock 4 air cooler, a sign of quality, silence or the possibility of overclocking. The RAM consists of 16GB of Crucial DDR4 3600Mhz (Ballistix range). The Micron brand also takes care of the storage with a 1TB M.2 Crucial P2 SSD.
To run your games, Cybertek has chosen an Nvidia MSI GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card in its 10GB GDDR6X version. Finally, in order to power it all, we will be entitled to a great classic with a Corsair RM850x 80+ Gold certified block.

PC Rue Du Commerce Eltharion from MSI: i5-12600K, 16GB DDR5, RTX 3080 Ti and 1TB SSD
For the record, be aware that Eltharion is the name of one of the most important and powerful elven princes in the Warhammer Fantasy universe.
And this PC pays a nice tribute to it given its power and features.
With its 12GB Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti MSI VENTUS 3X, there’s nothing this PC can’t do.
- Ray Tracing, 4K, Ultra games, extremely greedy software, nothing can resist it.
And that’s not counting on the rest of the members who aren’t even late!
The processor, for example, is also a monster. The Intel CORE i5-12600K 4.9GHz belongs to the latest generation released by Intel and can be overclocked thanks to its MSI MAG CoreLiquid 240R liquid cooling system.
For RAM, Cdiscount and MSI didn’t hesitate. They put 32GB in DDR5 at 4800MHz. That way you will be comfortable for many years of gaming.
The motherboard and storage are not far behind either, with an MSI B660 Tomahawk Wifi and a 1 TB MSI Spatium M480 SSD in NVMe.
