Start a PC gaming journey with $350 off this HP Pavilion pre-built gaming machine

So, you want to get into PC gaming—a very good choice, if we do say so ourselves (though we may be a bit biased). For those just starting out, BestBuy are offering a very reasonable HP Pavilion pre-built rig with an AMD Ryzen 7 2700 CPU, 16GB of memory, an AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics card, and a 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD storage set up for just $700. That's $350 less than normal and a saving of around 30 percent. Not bad for a system that'll handle most modern games at mid-to-high settings. It isn't the best gaming PC on the market by any means, but it is a very respectable starting point.
