This Alienware Aurora with an RTX 3070 is just $1,499 - surprisingly good value

Image Description

Alienware and value are two words that don't normally pair together, but hear us out - we've spotted a fantastic gaming PC deal in the form of this Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 for just $1,499.39.

Not only is this premium machine rocking a $390 price cut, but it's coming with an RTX 3070, AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD - fantastic specs for enthusiast level gaming that'll get you maxing out those games at great frame rates.

A few years ago, we'd always advocate building your own gaming PC for maximum value. Right now, however, the worldwide shortage of GPUs has meant that cheap graphics card deals are rare as hen's teeth these days, with some of the higher-end Nvidia and AMD cards fetching truly stratospheric levels.

Seriously though, a quick scan on eBay and Amazon for these parts shows prices that will set you back $1,100 for the RTX 3070 and Ryzen 7 alone right now. In context, suddenly this Alienware gaming PC deal starts to look like great value - something that almost seems unbelievable considering how premium this brand is.

Being a premium brand, you're also going to get a great case here with effective cooling and very neat and tidy cable management. These new Alienware cases also feature a modular tool-less design inside as well, so upgrading is extremely convenient down the line.

Not that you'll need to upgrade for some time with this Alienware Aurora, however. That RTX 3070 alone should see you through for a few good years down the line and the Ryzen 7 is still a very capable CPU indeed. Subsequently, this Alienware gaming PC deal looks like a winner if you're looking to upgrade in early 2021.

  • Watch out - that PayPal email could be a phishing attack

    PayPal is the world’s most popular payment system - for threat actors trying to trick people into giving away their login credentials, new research has claimed.

    Analyzing phishing campaigns taking place throughout 2021, Atlas VPN researchers found that almost two in five (37.8%) of all financial phishing attacks impersonated PayPal.

    The premise is simple - the threat actors will set up a landing page that looks almost identical to the PayPal login page, and will create an email that mimics the looks and the feels of a newsletter, notification email, or warning from the company. 

    TechRadar needs you!

    We're looking at how our readers use VPNs with different devices so we can improve our content and offer better advice. This survey shouldn't take more than 60 seconds of your time, and entrants from the UK and US will have the chance to enter a draw for a £100 Amazon gift card (or equivalent in USD).

    Amazon and Apple in the crosshairs

    That email will always hold a link, inviting the victim to log in with their endpoints and sort out whatever troubles await. That link, however, instead of driving the victim towards the actual PayPal login page, will lead them into the fake landing page where, if they’re gullible, they’ll give away their passwords to the attackers.

    Besides PayPal, cybercriminals also love impersonating Mastercard. As the second most-abused financial payment brand, Mastercard was impersonated in 12.2% of phishing instances. The goal, in these attacks, is to obtain credit card information.

    With a 10% market share, American Express took the third spot. 

    “To avoid getting tricked by a phishing attack targeting payment systems, users should keep in mind several things,” says Atlas VPN cybersecurity writer Vilius Kardelis. 

    “Websites impersonating popular brands will always have suspicious domain links, which can help to recognize whether the page is legit easily. Also, emails from scammers might contain grammatical errors, so keep an eye out for that.”

    Payment services aside, threat actors also love to impersonate ecommerce brands, with Apple and Amazon being the most abused brands. Almost half of all phishing attacks that used an ecommerce brand (48.78%) chose Apple, while Amazon was used in 21.48% of cases. 

    With 5.32% of the market share, eBay takes the third spot, followed by Alibaba with 4.14%.
