TL;DR: Get a Periphio gaming kit with a renewed Dell Optiplex 3020 PC for $589.99 — that’s 7% off as of Oct. 24.
Newbies in the gaming world might be tempted to go all out when it comes to equipment — from the computer itself to the desk, chair, accessories, lighting, and more. But when you’re just starting out, you should keep things simple. After all, this could be a passing interest, and you probably don’t want to spend thousands of dollars if that’s the case.
Instead, opt for something built for entry-level gaming, like this Dell Optiplex 3020 PC. Better yet, snag one that’s been renewed and save some major moolah.

This renewed Dell Optiplex 3020 Tower PC is ready right out of the box with Windows 10 installed, updated, and ready to roll. It’s powered by a quad-core Intel i5 processor, 16GB of RAM, 240GB of storage space, and an AMD R7 250 (2GB) graphics card. It has plenty of ports for connectivity, including six USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0, and even comes with a warranty and guarantee.
With the computer itself, you’ll also get a Periphio Gaming Kit, which includes a premium RGB gaming mouse and keyboard, a high-quality gaming headset, and a coveted XL gaming mouse pad. Not too shabby a setup for a newbie. You will have to snag yourself a gaming monitor to pair with it, but that’s the easy part.
All computers from Blair Technology Group, including this one, have gone through a rigorous refurbishing process. That includes quality control testing of internal hardware, installing a fresh hard drive, and verifying all ports and connectors are in working order. It’ll be just like buying brand-new, minus the price tag.
