Best Buy has a shockingly good deal on an HP Omen 30L gaming desktop with an AMD Radeon RX 6600XT, for, and I'm not kidding, $700. The system was already a pretty good price at $1,349 for a solid 1080p gaming rig, but slashing the price nearly half? It then becomes a very good 1080p budget gaming rig.

The HP Omen 30L is powered by an AMD Ryzen 5600G CPU—a solid Zen 3 chip—and a Radeon RX 6600XT, which isn't the best GPU out there but still outperforms an RTX 3060. You also have 16GB RAM and a 1TB NVMe SSD. For less than $1,000, that's an absolute steal.

The Ryzen 5600G is AMD's gaming-focused budget CPU, and it regularly beats out Intel's similarly priced offerings. Paired with the RX6600 XT, it should provide a satisfying 1080p gaming experience on medium to high settings in most games. I'd probably avoid attempting to game at 1440p unless you're willing to make some graphical compromises.

$1,349 $700 at Best Buy (save $650)
This Omen HP30L at $700 might be the best desktop deal we've seen post-Black Friday. This AMD-powered gaming rig should give you decent 1080p performance at an obscenely low price.  View Deal

A closer look at the spec list shows some components bit on the older side, which would explain the already low price of $1,349. But for $700, I'm willing to overlook some outdated RAM to get a decent CPU/GPU combo with 1TB NVMe SSD inside a cool-looking case.

Expect delivery time for the system to be about a week.

If you're looking for a little more horsepower, HP still has stock on the RTX 3070-powered Omen 25L gaming desktop that went on sale last week.
