This gaming PC with a Ryzen 5 3600 and GTX 1660 is on sale for $550

Budget management is the ultimate buzzkill when shopping for a new PC, though timing is everything, and there are still Prime Day deals to be had. Right now, for example, you can grab what is normally a $900 configuration with a 6-core/12-thread Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and GeForce GTX 1660 GPU for only $549.99. Compared to building your own, the CPU and GPU alone would cost a little over $400.

Granted, this is not a decked out gaming PC, but it is reasonably priced for the hardware. Other components include 8GB of DDR4-3000 memory, a 512GB solid state drive, a 500W power supply, and Windows 10 Home. It also comes with a keyboard and mouse (they’re probably pretty basic, but hey, you could set them aside as backups if nothing else).

I’m not too put off by the RAM, since prices have fallen over the past year. An 8GB module

Build a proper gaming PC for under $900 with these Prime Day deals

Building your own PC from scratch isn’t cheap, but it doesn’t have to be expensive, especially when we’re looking at PC components discounted with Prime Day deals. We’ve put together a gaming PC build that costs less than $900. It’s a capable build too, rocking a quad-core processor and enough graphics performance for solid 1080p and even some 1440p gaming.

While this is a more budget-focused build, there are deals that allow you to put together a more powerful PC for less, but with Black Friday just around the corner, it may be worth holding out on a component or two if you really want a specific part.

Give PC gaming a classic flavour with these retro controller Prime Day Lightning Deals

Nintendo has some of the biggest mascots in videogames, from classics like Mario and The Legend of Zelda’s Link to new ones like the Octolings from Splatoon, but the real characters have always been the company’s signature controllers. As PC gamers, we often forget about controllers unless they’re a flight stick to complete our Star Wars: Squadrons loadouts or fighting sticks to dominate the best fighting games out there, but nostalgia can be a powerful thing.

Whether you switched from consoles and want a blast from the past or simply want the authenticity of retro gaming, you can now get miadore’s N64 controller and iNNEXT’s SNES gamepads cheaper than ever in the UK. Both are USB-based and will work with emulators on various Windows, Raspberry Pis, and even Mac OS X. You don’t even need to bother with downloading a driver, as they’re entirely plug-and-play.

Since these are Lightning Deals,

Build a killer gaming PC with these 8 Prime Day deals

Upgrading a PC — especially a gaming PC — is never a cheap endeavour, but Prime Day deals are making it just that much more affordable. With deals on most hardware needed for a new build, you could theoretically run down this list and have a new PC shipped to you to assemble. Every part should have no issue working together, and really all you’d have to add are a few sweet gaming accessories. Hint: there are a ton of Razer Prime Day deals if you need a new keyboard, mouse, and headset.

Keep in mind, however, that this is a rather high-end PC when put together. You could always nab a few items while they’re on sale and save the rest for the next big sale. Black Friday is quite close due to the delay of Prime Day, so expect to see similar prices. Whether that means you wait … Read More

UPDATE: Oct. 13, 2020, 4:01 p.m. EDT You can now save an extra $100 on top of the already generous Prime Day deal of $500 off.

SAVE $600: For Prime Day, the ultra-high-end Razer Blade 15 Advanced Gaming Laptop is $600 off. 


PC gamers know this truth better than anyone else: Gaming laptops are kind of ugly sometimes. More often than not, they’re super chunky and packed to the brim with RGB lights and designs that just aren’t everyone’s style (no judgment here if it does happen to be your style). It can really be a deterrent from ever buying one.  

It’s a lucky day,
