The Best Cheap Gaming PC Deals for September 2020

Even old-school computer enthusiasts have to accept that it’s hard to beat the portability of a laptop in today’s mobile landscape, but when it comes to gaming, even the best 2-in-1 ultrabook or MacBook can’t hold a candle to a proper desktop battle station. It’s much easier and cheaper to cram all that beefy hardware into a full-sized computer tower, and this lets you upgrade any one of your computer’s internal parts (giving you future-proofing that laptops can’t offer). A desktop PC also allows for full-sized monitors, multiple displays, and purpose-built gaming accessories such as keyboards and mice.

Many people assemble their own PCs, and while that’s a fine option, it can be a challenge for the uninitiated and may not save you all that much cash. Unless your time is worthless, why not find a good cheap gaming PC that suits your needs instead? There are plenty waiting to

Great moments in PC gaming: Going on the defensive in Dawn of War 2

Great moments in PC gaming are bite-sized celebrations of some of our favorite gaming memories.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2

(Image credit: THQ)

Year: 2009
Developer: Relic

The first Dawn of War let me play with armies bigger than I could ever afford when I played Warhammer 40,000 on a ping-pong table with styrofoam hills on it. Every click-and-drag put battalions of troops and entire tank platoons under my command. 

Then Dawn of War 2 came along. On most maps, it gives you four small squads—one of which is just your commander. It takes some getting used to. Thing is, each of those squads is like a character in an RPG. They level up and collect gear and unlock abilities. In most engagements the scouts begin in hiding, decloaking before the heavy weapons focus fire or the assault squad jetpacks over the top or the tactical squad taunts. What
