Someone spent 45 hours building an RTX 3070 gaming PC in Minecraft

Henceforth to be known as a master Minecraft builder, Reddit user AlanGeisse has been using their skills to recreate their very own fantasy PC builds in-game. In the first installation, as exhibited in this hilariously epic flythrough video, it’s even possible to swim through the PCs water cooling system—which is pretty amazing. 

Unfortunately, their initial post on r/Minecraft didn’t gain much traction. But, after spending 45 hours on an even more accurate, higher spec design, complete with an elusive Nvidia RTX 3070, Alan’s finally getting the recognition they deserve.

Speaking with us, Alan explains that, due to unavoidable height limitations associated with building in Minecraft, the scale of this second design ended up at around 2mm per block. And, although there were some inevitable scaling issues due to these restrictions, it still looks pretty darn accurate to us. 

Alan graciously divulged how they managed to achieve such an

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition review: Spectacular 1440p

After a high-end shootout between Nvidia and AMD resulted in not one, not two, but six different graphics cards released with sky-high $500+ price tags, the next generation is finally trickling down to more affordable price points with the launch of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti on December 2. This excellent GPU may actually be the most exciting entry in Nvidia’s RTX 30-series yet.

At $400, the RTX 3060 Ti costs significantly more than the 60- and 70-class GeForce options of yesteryear (anybody remember the $330 GTX 970 and $380 GTX 1070?), continuing a trend we’ve seen in recent graphics card families. But if you can look past the name, you’ll find the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti delivers a lot of value, pumping out frames faster than last generation’s $800 GeForce RTX 2080 Super—the second-fastest graphics card in the world up until a few months ago—for half the price. Yes,

Get an RTX 30 series and a whole gaming PC from Dell on Cyber Monday

You can’t buy an RTX 30 series right now. But you can buy an RTX 30 series-powered PC.

It’s been a year of scarcity for PC enthusiasts, with new graphics cards (GPU) and new processors (CPU) launching with limited stock. If you didn’t manage to get your hands on NVIDIA’s new RTX 30-series GPUs on launch day or soon thereafter, chances are you’re still out of luck. Or rather, you are unless you’re prepared to get a little more outside the box with your thinking.

As we’re into Cyber Monday, Dell’s Alienware brand has just the ticket and with some discounts for added good measure. Whether you’re an Intel or AMD fan, you can get yourself an RTX 3070 or RTX 3080. And get this? Alienware will even include the rest of the PC!

Cyber Monday Gaming PC deal: Save $300 on this AMD Ryzen machine with an RTX 2060

If you’re on the hunt for a Cyber Monday gaming PC deal, but don’t fancy splashing out on a high-end rig with a RTX 3080, this $300 saving on a HP Omen RTX 2060 gaming PC from Best Buy might tempt you instead. While the card is on the lower end of the RTX GPU scale, it’s still fast and will let you finally turn on those ray tracing options, and it’s backed up by a great CPU. It’s also down to $949.99 this Cyber Monday. 

The 2060 is an entry-level RTX GPU, and while it might not be as flashy as the latest generation of Nvidia’s cards, it’s still the best way to enjoy ray tracing on a budget, at least until the 3060 appears next year. And you’re also getting the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, one of the best CPUs around for its price, which is more powerful

Get $50 off this RTX 3070 Cyber Monday gaming PC deal – delivered December 8

We know that without today’s Cyber Monday gaming PC deals it’s almost impossible to bag yourself a next-gen graphics card right now. But at Newegg you can grab this Nvidia RTX 3070-powered desktop rig for $1,449.99, which is a $50 saving over its list price. But that minute discount is not the main sell, the fact that you can have this sitting on your desktop by December 8 surely is. That’s Ampere in time for Christmas, with RTX 2080 Ti performance in a full system which almost costs the same as that card on its own.

The rest of the spec does suggest that ABS has simply taken its old Gladiator systems and jammed in a bunch of RTX 3070 cards, but that’s fine by us. The 650W PSU at its heart is specced out to deal with Nvidia’s third-tier Ampere GPU, and there is a tasty 1TB SSD in

Cyber Monday Gaming PC Deal: Save $300 on this RTX 2060 gaming PC

Black Friday is a distant memory, gone like tears in rain, like dust in the wind, but the deals just won’t quit. Over at Newegg you can pick up this pre-built gaming PC, the dramatically named Skytech Archangel 3.0, which is lacking in some areas, but generally a very decent mid-range build. If you wanna play at 1080p, and maybe 1440p depending on the game, this PC will happily oblige.

For $899.99, which is a very tidy saving of $300, you get a Ryzen 5 2600X processor, an NVIDIA RTX 2060 graphics card, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 500GB SSD, fans with RGB lights (essential, of course), Windows 10 Home, and built-in Wi-Fi. The case also has an LED strip to complement your RGB fans, and a tempered glass window so you can see all your shiny new hardware whirring away inside.

RTX on the cheap

No RTX 3080 in stock? This Black Friday sale might be what you need.

Good luck getting your hands on an RTX 30-series GPU for Black Friday if it doesn’t come in a pre-built gaming desktop.

It’s been a year of scarcity for PC enthusiasts, with new graphics cards (GPU) and new processors (CPU) launching with limited stock. If you didn’t manage to get your hands on NVIDIA’s new RTX 30-series GPUs on launch day or soon thereafter, chances are you’re still running an old GPU. If you do want to claim an RTX 3080 (or 3070 or 3090) as your own this Black Friday, you might want to check out Dell’s sale on its Alienware Aurora R11. It’s not a huge sale, but it’s something for those of us who haven’t yet moved to the next generation.
