UPDATE: More Deals! – Best Amazon Prime Day 2019 PC Component Deals

With so many recent shake-ups to the PC component market, no doubt many of you are having a bit of trouble navigating this year’s Prime Day, but fear no more, as we’ve rounded up our top picks for this year’s sales in each category.

Best Amazon Prime Day Deals for CPUs

The Ryzen 5 2600 is a great budget gaming CPU choice, especially at $119 as you’ll have more money to spend on a graphics card to pair it with (we’d recommend the RX 570).

The Ryzen 7 2700X is last generation’s flagship part and at this price it is still a great choice for content-creators on a budget. While there are situations where the newer Ryzen 5 3600 will still win out despite having fewer cores, if your workload benefits from having more cores, the 2700X will deliver.

Despite 3rd-generation Ryzen parts just launching this month, Ryzen 2nd-generation is still very capable and at these prices they’re basically unbeatable in terms of value.

Finally, we have the Intel Core i7 9700K, which at $349 isn’t the most amazing deal ever, but it is worth considering. We usually recommend the 3700X at this price point, but if you absolutely must have Intel this is a good price to pay.

Best Amazon Prime Day Deals for Motherboards

Of course, if you’re buying a new CPU you may want a motherboard to pop in into, and there’s a few stand out deals for that as well.

For Ryzen-compatible motherboards, we’ve got the GIGABYTE X470 AORUS ULTRA Gaming, which for Prime users is only $99, and at that price it makes a great motherboard to pair with either of the Ryzen parts we listed above, and should have no issues with a Ryzen 3000-series part either. Although, you may need a BIOs update to support the newer CPUs.

If you’re looking for something to pair with that 9700K, well, the ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-E Gaming isn’t the cheapest motherboard on the platform, but it has a lot of features and at $188, it’s definitely priced lower than ever. If you want something a bit more lower-end, the MSI Z390-A PRO is also a pretty solid deal at $109.

Update: We’ve also added the ASUS Prime B450-Plus, and the ASUS TUF X470-Plus which are both solid Ryzen-3000 compatible motherboards for only $76 and $98, respectively, which is the lowest prices they’ve ever been listed at (according to Honey). Grab’em while they’re hot!

For Intel, the GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS PRO is currently listed at $144, which is a great price as this motherboard typically goes for as much as $180 and features a solid 12+1-phase VRM.


Best Amazon Prime Day Deals for Memory

Whether you’re building an Intel or AMD-based rig, chances are you’ll still need RAM and we’ve got two 16GB kits, each serving the lower-end and higher-end markets.

First, we’ve got a fantastic deal on a kit of Corsair Vengeance LPX with speeds of 3,000 megatransfers, priced at just $59 for Prime users. This kit will pair really nicely with that Ryzen 5 2600 CPU, and should even make a decent match for the newer Ryzen 5 3600 as well.

If you’re looking for something higher end to pair with something like a Ryzen 9 3900X, well, the Crucial Ballistix Elite is the cheapest kit of 16GB 3600 CL16 RAM we’ve seen available, and its also listed as being Ryzen-compatible. It should also work fine with Intel parts as well.

Best Amazon Prime Day Deals for Graphics Cards

Unfortunately, the deals on graphics cards are a bit weaker, and this likely because the RTX Super and Radeon RX 5700 series both just launched, and they’re already much cheaper than previously available cards at those performance-levels. Still, there are a couple of decent deals worth mentioning.

First, we have the MSI Gaming RTX 2070 DUKE, which isn’t one of those shiny new SUPER cards, but at $429, it costs as much if not less than most custom RTX 2060 SUPER graphics cards, and it still includes codes for Control and Wolfenstein: Young Blood.

On the lower-end, we have the Sapphire Pulse RX 570 4GB model for $119, which isn’t much cheaper than the typical pricing for an RX 570, but it’s still a good buy.

Best Amazon Prime Day Deals for CPU Coolers

If you’re looking for something to cool down your new CPU, there’s also a couple of really good deals here too. On the higher end, we’ve got a DEEPCOOL Castle 360EX RGB, which is the company’s newest model featuring ‘anti-leak’ technology. At $129, it’s about $30 bucks off and that’s a pretty decent discount for a cooler like this.

On the lower end of things, we’ve got a Thermaltake Contac Silent 12, which I have to admit I’ve never heard of before this, but it has 4 direct contact Copper heatpipes and a single 120mm fan, so it should be comparable to a Hyper 212, and it’s only $16.

Best Amazon Prime Day Deals for Cases

Unfortunately, there aren’t many exciting deals on the case side of things, but the Corsair Carbide 275R is on sale for just $64, which makes it a great choice for budget, and mid-ranged gaming PCs.

Update: We’ve added the Thermaltake Versa H17, which is currently going for just $32, making it a great deal for users looking for a solid-built, but inexpensive mATX case with clean aesthetics.

That’s about all we’ve got for today, but we’ll be sure to update as we find more interesting and noteworthy deals.
