As part of the Amazon Black Friday sale event, Amazon has the MSI Codex R RTX 4060 gaming PC for a low, low price of $799.99, a savings of $200 off the MSRP. That’s one of the best prices we’ve seen this year for a fully prebuilt RTX 4060 equipped gaming PC and rivals any gaming PC deal we found so far for Black Friday. The Codex R uses off-the-shelf components so it’s easy to upgrade it yourself in the future.
MSI Codex R RTX 4060 Gaming PC for $799
The MSI Codex R is equipped with an Intel Core i5-12400F CPU, GeForce RTX 4060 8GB GPU, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and a 1TB NVMe SSD. The 12th gen Intel Core i5-12400F Alder Lake CPU has a max turbo clock speed of 4.4GHz with 6 cores, 12 threads, and 18MB cache. This is an excellent chip that will serve you well in both gaming and multi-tasking. The “F” in 13400F simply means that the chip doesn’t have onboard graphics (iGPU). That won’t matter if you have a discrete GPU, which in this case is the RTX 4060.
The RTX 4060 is considerably more powerful than the RTX 3060 and almost nearly matches the RTX 3060 Ti. I would recommend this card for comfortable 1080p gaming although you can also run games at 1440p with relaxed graphic settings. Because it’s a current generation card, the RTX 4060 supports the newer DLSS 3.0 and 3.5 tech. It gives you a very nice framerate boost compared to equivalent AMD cards without sacrificing visual quality for games that support it, like the new Cyberpunk: Phantom Liberty DLC.
