Whether Bitcoin is a thing to stay or not, the recent rise in mining crypto currency has driven the price of PC video cards sky high this Summer. While once you could find GTX 1060's for $200 and GTX 1070's for $300, you now see sold out, back ordered or inflated prices. GTX 1060 sell for $300 - $500 and a GTX 1070 anywhere from $460 - $800. It's to the point that building is less profitable that pre-built machines, especially now that the 4th of July sales have kicked in.




Lenovo, HP, and even GameStop have discounts worthy of this 4th of July with discounts often cheaper than what you could build for. Some you might even be able to strip the parts off and sell individually on eBay for a profit (prices are that crazy in some areas). Below we've round up the best Gaming desktop deals in each sale.


At Lenovo this year the best machine is undoubtedly the Y710 Cube. This is a gaming rig Lenovo is trying to rid themselves of since it's equipped with last years Intel 6th gen Core i processors. The $899 Y710 Cube with a Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and GTX 1060 is probably your best price-per-hardware-spec on the market today.

It's a similar story at HP. There you'll find Hewlett Packard trying to rid themselves of the old HP Omen 870 desktop with last year's 6th generation Intel processors. The result are new low prices on two configurations, the most notable the GTX 1060 for $799.99. That is one of the (if not the) cheapest gaming desktop with a GTX 1060 and an Intel processor on the market right now.


Going even cheaper with a GTX 1060 is GameStop and their sales on CyberPowerPC Game Master series desktops. Recent price drops at GameStop have driven their Ryzen 7 1700X machine with the coveted GTX 1070 down to $1,350, while it normally sells for $1,500. Much cheaper is the Ryzen 5 1400 / GTX 1060 config with a drop to $750 - one of the cheapest GTX 1060 PCs available.
