Not bad for a premium machine
Introduced in Summer/Fall 2016, the HP Omen X, a collaboration with Maingear, is not exactly a budget gaming rig. Heck, even the bare chassis has a list price of $600. The gaming desktop hasn’t had very many deals through the past few months given its premium nature, but with the introduction of a new 20% off coupon for select HP desktops (of which the Omen X 900 qualifies), we’re finally spotting some reasonable pricing for the borg-cube gaming rig.
In fact, if you opt for the models with 7th-generation Kaby Lake processor you’ll find significantly better value when compared the older config with 6th-gen Sky Lake processors. Newly introduced to the lineup and buried among HP’s confusing model # store catalog, you can now pick up the latest Omen X with Kaby Lake for $1,279.99 after using coupon code VIPFEB20DT for 20% off. The base config starts with a Quad Core i5-7400 3.5Ghz processor, GeForce GTX 1070, 8GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD combo to finish off the machine.
For those with money to burn, the top-end config is priced at $2,399 (after coupon), and comes with a Core i7-6700K 4.0 Ghz, a 512GB SSD combo with a 3TB HDD, giant 32GB of RAM, with a GeForce GTX 1080 to top it all off. For the same price, you can also opt for a model with a 256GB SSD plus a Radeon R9 Fury X instead of the GTX 1080. Both are ridiculously pricey but will run any games you throw their way for 2017 and beyond.
Update: New coupon code from HP on both the Omen X and Omen 870 is now available below. Deal expires later this week on March 10, 2017.

Like the Omen X above, the better value comes the 870-210se model, netting you the latest Kaby Lake processor, GTX 1060 Founders Edition, 8GB RAM, and a 2TB HDD for only $799 after coupon VIPFEB20DT for 20% off. That’s not half bad in our opinion.
