After a COVID-related delay, Amazon Prime Day 2020 is here at last. While Amazon itself is offering tons of deals on games and more, there are also other retailers hosting sales of their own during the 48-hour event. One of those is PC-focused online retailer Newegg; through its “FantasTech” and “Gametober” sales, you’ll be able to get discounts on parts for your gaming PC, pre-built gaming rigs, gaming laptops, external hard drives for PS4 and Xbox One, and more.
Quite a few next-gen games are coming to PC as well as PS5 and/or Xbox Series X/S, including Godfall and the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077. If you were unable to score a next-gen console preorder or prefer playing games on PC, now’s a great time to upgrade your hardware so you’re ready to run fall’s biggest games. Be sure to read our guide to building a gaming PC before you shop so you get the right components, too.
Below, we’ve rounded up the best deals at Newegg during Prime Day. You can also see our roundup of the best Prime Day PC gaming deals on Amazon for more PC deals, plus all the best deals on Razer headsets, keyboards, and mice you can get right now as well as the best hard drive deals for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
$1,100 (was $1,450)
If you’re looking to start fresh, getting a pre-built PC is a great option. This one features an RTX 2060 Super graphics card–which, while not the most high-end option, will still perform well with most modern games at decent settings–plus a 1TB SSD. On top of that, you also get a keyboard and mouse along with it, making this a great all-around package for a brand-new, ready-to-go gaming rig at an excellent price.
$310 (was $390) with promo code 2FTSTECH288
If you’re instead in the market for individual parts to upgrade an existing PC, you can get a great deal on this RTX 2060 graphics card. It may not be the newest model, but it’ll run both current-gen and next-gen games well at a strong price point.
$200 (was $220)
For a new graphics card on more of a budget, this ASRock Radeon RX 5500 is a good option. As a bonus, you can get both Godfall, which releases November 12 on PS5 and PC, and World of Warcraft as a free gift with your purchase.
$275 (was $370) with promo code 2FTSTECH58
If you’re in the market for a new processor, this mid-line Intel model is $70 off. The next model up, the i9, is several hundred dollars more expensive, so this is a great option–just note that it’s only compatible with Intel 300 series motherboards.
$161 (was $250)
Games aren’t getting any smaller, and while standard hard-disk drives aren’t the top-end for gaming these days, 6TB is still a good amount of storage–especially for $161.
$176 (was $260)
While NVMe M.2 SSDs are the new standard for the highest speeds and performance, SATA III SSDs like this one are still worthwhile and can get you more storage for your buck. Right now, you can get this one for $94 off.
$120 (was $180)
For those interested in upgrading to an NVMe M.2 SSD, this WD Black model is a fantastic option. It’s currently $60 off.
$75 (was $117) with rebate and promo code 39GAMETBR33
This tenkeyless mechanical keyboard comes with Cherry MX low-profile switches and two sets of keycaps to choose from. It features customizable macros and LED colors and, because it lacks the number pad seen on full-size keyboards, it’s nice and compact. It comes in black and white, both priced at $100–but you can knock $5 off the price with the promo code above and then another $20 with a mail-in rebate.
$95 (was $150)
If you’re in the market for more storage space for consoles or PC, this external drive gets you a ton of extra storage at a low price point. It’s compatible with PS5 and Xbox Series X/S for backwards-compatible games as well as storing and transferring next-gen games between the hard drive and console when you want to play them, so it’s a great option if you’re preparing for the next-gen consoles to arrive.
