That GTX 1650 Super is a genuinely impressive little 1080p graphics card. That is a little off the pace compared with the latest, mostly unavailable, RTX 30-series cards, but this entry-level Aurora is still a decent machine, and will take many an upgrade. As such you’re going to want to switch that 1TB hard drive for an SSD pretty quickly.View Deal

The next configuration up is even better, because it contains an i7-10700F CPU (eight cores, 16 threads, boost to 4.8GHz) and doubles the RAM to 16GB. Its GPU is an RTX 2060, and it adds a 256GB SSD to the hard drive. Much better, and currently with a $196 discount at $1,273.99. If you keep going, you’ll eventually end up with an RTX 3080-based machine in your cart, and there are surprisingly some modest discounts on those too.
