So, what kind of specs are we looking at here? This tower ships with an eighth-generation quad-core 3.2GHz Intel Core i7-8700 processor, integrated Intel HD Graphics, 8GB of DDR4 RAM (2400Mhz), a 1TB 7200RPM hard drive, Bluetooth 4.2, and 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support.

While this config typically sells for about $799.99, when you use coupon code “SAVE12” in your cart, you’re only left paying $703.99 (plus any applicable taxes). And since that coupon also works with custom configurations, you can jump up to an AMD Radeon RX 580 for only $264 more. With a graphics card like that, you can handle pretty much any modern game.

A DisplayPort and HDMI port are included in this configuration, so you’ll be able to use the vast majority of PC monitors or HDTVs. And if your display of choice has a different connection, a quick search on Amazon or MonoPrice will likely result in an affordable adapter.

Windows 10 Home (64-bit) comes installed by default, so you’ll have access to helpful features like the Cortana personal assistant, the Windows Store, and local game streaming from your Xbox One.
