Discounter Aldi is offering three gaming PCs for 1,399, 1,599 and 3,599 euros from June 2, 7 a.m. All three models have an Intel CPU in combination with an Nvidia GPU and 32 GB of RAM. We check whether the computers are worth their money.

three gaming PCs on offer. While the price for the cheapest model, Medion Erazer Engineer X10 (MD34775), is 1,399 euros, the Medion Erazer Hunter X20 costs a whopping 3,599 euros. This was already available with a similar configuration from Aldi in mid-February – we reported.

In between there is the Medion Erazer X10 (MD34895) for 1,599 euros. All three Medion PCs have in common that the graphics card comes from Nvidia and the processor from Intel, but the manufacturer does not always use components from the current generation.

The configuration: Medion System Engineer X10 MD34775 for 1,399 euros and MD34895 for 1,599 euros

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-11700 (2.5 to 4.9 GHz, 8 cores / 16 threads, 16 MB Intel Smart Cache)

  • GPU


    : Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 LHR with 12 GB GDDR6 video memory

  • GPU


    : Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 LHR with 8 GB GDDR6 video memory


  • RAM: 32 GB DDR4 memory (up to 2933 MHZ)

  • Housing: In Win 301 with glass window

  • Motherboard: unknown

  • CPU cooler: unknown

  • Power supply: unknown

  • Operating system: Microsoft Windows 11 Home

  • Guarantee: 3 years

  • Price: 1,399 euros / 1,599 euros


Since both gaming PCs are called System Engineer X10, they can only be distinguished by the serial number. The model with the identifier MD34775 relies on an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 (for the test report) as GPU, whereas the MD34895 has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 (for the test report) installed.

As far as is known, the rest of the hardware is identical for both systems. The Core i7-11700 processor is now obsolete, as it is still based on the Rocket Lake architecture. Here, going for an Alder Lake CPU would have been a much better choice, both in terms of price/performance and energy efficiency. In addition, 32 GB RAM is “nice to have”, but 16 GB would have been completely sufficient for a gaming PC. The 1 TB PCIe SSD offers enough storage space for the operating system and a few games, but unfortunately the exact model is not known. Information on the built-in mainboard, the CPU cooler and the power supply unit is also missing. Presumably, Medion relies on OEM components, which can make later upgrading more difficult.

Assemble Aldi PCs yourself:

We have reconfigured both systems – as far as possible – with components available on the open market and for the MD34775 worth 1,399 euros we come to a single component price of almost 1300 euros (for configuration).

For the replica of the MD34895 worth 1,599 euros, a good 1,500 euros would be due (for configuration). So Aldi charges around 100 euros for assembly and the three-year guarantee for both gaming PCs, which is fine. Nevertheless, we consider the configurations to be questionable for the reasons listed above. Especially since the same gaming performance is also significantly cheaper, as our gaming PC configurations show for around 1,000 euros and 1,200 euros.

The configuration: Medion Hunter X20 for 3,599 euros configuration

  • CPU: Intel Core i9-12900KF (3.2 to 5.2 GHz, 16 cores / 24 threads, 30 MB Intel Smart Cache)

  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 12GB GDDR6X video memory

  • Motherboard: Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Pro AX


  • HDD: 2TB HDD

  • RAM: 32 GB DDR5 memory (up to 4800 MHZ)

  • CPU cooler: Alphacool Eisbaer 240

  • PSU: Seasonic Focus GX-750

  • Housing: In Win 103 with glass window

  • Operating system: Microsoft Windows 11 Home

  • Guarantee: 3 years


The configuration of the Medion Hunter X20 is well thought out and relies on high-quality branded components. The Core i9-12900KF is one of the currently fastest gaming CPUs, as our processor comparison shows, and is also slightly cheaper than the normal Core i9-12900K (to the test report), which only differs in an integrated graphics unit.

We also find the use of the RTX 3080 Ti (to the test report) commendable. An RTX 3090 or RTX 3090 Ti is only marginally faster when gaming and the surcharge is disproportionately high. However, there would have been a significant savings potential in the working memory. Our test showed that DDR4 RAM is only slightly slower than DDR5 memory. While a 32GB DDR4 3600MHz kit price comparison

from around 110 euros

are available for the same amount of DDR5 4800MHz RAM

at least 195 euros

due. In addition, money could have been saved with a Z690 mainboard with DDR4 slots.

Build a 3,599 euro Aldi PC yourself:

We also reconfigured the Medion Hunter X20 (for configuration) and found that building this system yourself would be significantly cheaper. So we come to a single component price of around 2,870 euros, which is over 700 euros less than Aldi charges for the gaming PC. In addition, DDR4 RAM and another mainboard would save another 100 euros.

All in all, we can only advise against buying the PC at this price. Anyone who dares to build their own can be inspired by our gaming PC configurations.


An alternative ready-made PC, which also has an RTX 3080 Ti installed, would be the Hyrican Striker 6800 RGB. This also contains a Ryzen 7 5800X, 32 GB DDR4 memory and a 1 TB PCIe SSD. The price falls with it
