Best Buy

With its $200 discount, this is the lowest-cost laptop I’ve encountered with Nvidia RTX 30-series graphics. You’ll need to be OK with getting a bigger and bulkier 17.3-inch laptop rather than a more popular 15.6-inch, though. It teams RTX 3050 Ti graphics with midrange components: an 11th-gen Core i5 CPU, 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 17.3-inch display features full HD resolution and a speedy 144Hz refresh rate.

Acer’s Nitro 5 has long been a popular pick for gamers on tight budgets. Most Nitro 5 models are priced in the triple digits and supply midrange components and aging GTX graphics. Not so with this model, if you are willing to stretch your budget to just over $1,000. This model delivers the latest from Intel and Nvidia with an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics. The 15.6-inch display features a full HD resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate.

This MSI model isn’t on sale but is one of the lowest cost laptops I’ve encountered with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics. It pairs the RTX 3060 GPU with decidedly midrange offerings in a previous-generation Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM. The 15.6-inch display features a full HD resolution and a speedy 144Hz refresh rate.
