(Best) RTX 3060 Prebuilt Gaming PC AMD and Intel – Great for 1080p to 1440p Gaming

By now, you are probably aware that it is very difficult to buy a graphics card; or at least get one at its (original) MSRP. It’s either they are out of stock or priced twice or three times. Buying a prebuilt wasn’t a good idea before, but it seems buying a prebuilt gaming PC nowadays isn’t a bad idea. And it’s a preferable option especially if you need a (gaming) PC right away. In this article, I listed some of the (best) prebuilt gaming PCs with an RTX 3060 graphics card. There are Intel and AMD powered systems and most of them are reasonably specced. If you are in the market for an RTX 3060 prebuild gaming PC, check out the list below.

(Best) Prebuilt Gaming Desktop PCs with RTX 3060 GPU

Most of the prebuilt gaming PCs below are from System Integrators (SI), like Computer Upgrade King (CUK), SkyTech, and CyberpowerPC. There are a few listed below that are from OEMs like HP, Lenovo, and MSI; but are sold via an SI like CUK.

The difference between a prebuilt that came from an SI and the ones that came from an OEM is mostly the components used. If you buy an RTX 3060 prebuilt system from an SI, you can’t be sure what component or brand of the component are they going to use. Most probably, the components will come from different brands. Don’t expect to get flagship or higher-end components as well, since they are usually more expensive.

On the other, if you buy a prebuilt, let’s say from MSI, it is expected that most of the parts (if not all) are from MSI. Like MSI casing, MSI motherboard, MSI graphics card, etc. But it may be a different case for HP Omen and Lenovo. Since they don’t manufacturer most of the components. They may outsource them from other OEMs.

Also, note that not all of the prebuilt gaming PCs I listed below are “the best” out there. While some of these prebuilt gaming PC look nice and seems well-spec; they may not be the “best” depending on the criteria. And again, don’t expect that they will use flagship components. For example, an Asus ROG Maximus or even a Hero motherboard. Or a superfast Samsung 980 Pro NVMe SSD or WD Black SN850. These components are (very) expensive.

RTX 3060 Prebuilt From Newegg

The table below doesn’t include prebuilt systems sold from or via Newegg. Because Newegg has a very good sorting system and we can easily filter which gaming PC has this kind of component installed.

    Bear in mind that some of the system integrators are not as popular compared to the ones listed on Amazon. And some PCs will be shipped outside the US. So, be sure to read any fine print and buyers’ feedback as much as possible if available.

    Prebuilt Gaming PCs From Amazon

    The RTX 3060 prebuilt PCs listed below are all sold from or via Amazon. They don’t have a good filtering system like Newegg’s, thus I listed them in table format. At the time I gathered the data and published this article, most of the PCs below are available or has a few days of waiting time. Availability changes fast, especially nowadays. So, visit the link for the latest pricing and availability.

    FAQ Regarding Prebuilt Gaming PCs

    Is The GeForce RTX 3060 Good For Gaming?

    NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 is great for 1080p gaming and good for 1440p. In our review, we recommend that it’s an ideal graphics card for 1080p gaming. Though you can also use it for 1440p resolution but needs tweaking depending on how graphics-intensive the game is.

    If you want to learn more about the performance of an RTX 3060 graphics card, you can check out our MSI RTX 3060 Gaming X Trio review here and GALAX RTX 3060 EX review here. Again, it is not a guarantee which RTX 3060 graphics card will you get when buying a prebuilt. But most of the RTX 3060 cards in the market perform similarly.

    Pros of prebuilt gaming PCs?

    One advantage of a prebuilt gaming PC is that it’s already assembled and is expected to work out of the box. You only need to take it out of the box; plug the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power and you are good to go. Some system integrators may have additional instructions or reminders, so be sure to check out any reading materials or manual they provide.

    Another advantage is when you encounter a problem or when something isn’t working properly. You only need to connect the SI’s customer support. Unlike when building the system by yourself, you’ll have to figure out which component(s) is causing the issue. And you’ll have to contact the manufacturer of that particular component. The same can be said when claiming a warranty. If you need to claim a warranty, just contact the system integrator and not the individual or specific manufacturer.

    Most of the system integrators mentioned above seem reputable and have been in the business for quite some time. Otherwise, they wouldn’t get good feedback and reviews from customers. So, when it comes to component compatibility, more or less they know which components are compatible with the system they are selling. But I suggest that you need to check out the components as well, depending on your needs of specific use.

    Some System Integrators, especially OEMs include freebies; usually a mouse and a keyboard. So that’s a bit of a plus, I guess. These gaming PCs also include the Windows operating system. They are, after all, expected to work out of the box. So, you only need to download and install the games and other apps that you need.

    Cons of prebuilt gaming PCs?

    Prebuilt gaming PCs are usually more expensive compared to building the system by yourself. Also, the premium price that one system integrator puts on top of the total cost is not similar to another SI. Some SI charges higher compared to others. A $2,000 gaming PC may not have the same specs inside with another $2,000 gaming PC from a different SI.

    That is why most people are saying that you should just build it yourself if you want to save some cash. The only problem is some of the components, especially the graphics cards are either out of stock or sold individually for a very high price.

    Another disadvantage of buying a prebuilt gaming PC from an SI is that you don’t know what specific component are they going to use. Of course, with an exception, if the prebuilt is from an OEM like MSI.

    Most system integrators do not disclose what brand and specific model of motherboard, graphics card, SSD/HDD or the power supply they use; and so on. While some do disclose what component they use, most are still unclear. They just mention a generic spec like B550 motherboard or 700W PSU, etc.

    I hope this article helps. If you find it helpful, please consider sharing this with your friends, especially if they need a gaming PC today.
