When it comes to PC Gaming, 2021 has no doubt been one of the worse years in recent history for pricing and availability, and unfortunately, it hasn’t gotten a whole lot better, at least for things like graphics cards. That said, there are lots of other components and accessories that make up an awesome gaming or workstation and thankfully, there are still plenty of deals to be had on those. In this report, we’ll be going over our favorite CyberMonday deals on Amazon.
Looking for a new gaming monitor? GIGABYTE’s M27Q is on sale for just $279, which is a bit higher than its historically lowest price of $259, but still much lower than the historical average price of $310. 27″ 1440p monitor features a refresh rate of 170Hz and 92% DCI-P3 color accuracy. On top of that, it features a built-in KVM for controlling multiple devices at once.
Looking for 4K? This 32″ Samsung UJ59 is just $289, which again is far below the average price of $351 for this display. You’ll get a 60Hz refresh rate, 4ms response time, along with support for AMD FreeSync for that price.
For those looking for a more entry-level gaming monitor, check out this Acer KG251Q for $185. For that price, you’ll get a 24.5″ 1920 x 1080 display, with a refresh rate of 165Hz and support for AMD FreeSync.
With Alder-Lake finally here and AMD’s 3D VCache lineup sure to arrive soon, we’re in a bit of a strange place when it comes to the processor market right now. Still, AMD’s current Ryzen 5000 series processors offer excellent performance, and with the Ryzen 9 5900X listed at $484, its historically lowest price on the store, it still makes a tempting upgrade for current Ryzen 2nd and 3rd generation owners with supported motherboards.
If you want something a bit cheaper, the Ryzen 7 5800X is listed at just $340, which like the 5900X, is the lowest price it’s ever been listed on Amazon.
Memory and Storage
Amazon has some excellent deals on both storage and memory, whether you’re looking to build something new or upgrade your current rig, these deals are very enticing.
ADATA’s XPG D50 RGB DDR4 memory is on sale for as low as $58, for a kit of 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200CL16. You can move up to a more Ryzen-friendly 3600 M/Ts speed for just $68. If you’re looking for more RAM for all the Chrome tabs your heart desires, Crucial has you covered with a kit of Ballistix (2x16GB) DDR4-3200CL16 for just $118.
As for storage, we’ve got a historically low price of $44 for the Crucial P2 500GB PCIe Gen3 SSD. If you want even more storage, Samsung’s 970 EVO Plus 2TB is also at its lowest price ever of $199. That said, if Gen4 speeds are more to your standards, the Crucial P5 Plus 1TB is looking really nice at $144, which is again, its lowest price ever. This drive offers speeds of up to 6600MB/s for sequential reads, making it a great upgrade for your PC or PS5.
Power Supplies & Cooling
Building a budget gaming PC? EVGA has an excellent deal on its 600W W3 for $30, which is the historically lowest listed price. Don’t expect any bells and whistles, but we’ve had great experiences with EVGA units in the past, so we expect this one to be no exception. If you’re looking for something decidedly higher end the Corsair RM850X is just $108, which is only a bit higher than its historically low price of $99, and quite a bit cheaper than the average price of $132. You’ll get 850W, gold-rated performance with fully modular cables.
For coolers, the Corsair H100i RGB Pro XT all in-one liquid cooler is just $99, which is its lowest listed price. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly air cooling option the ID-COOLING SE-224-XT is listed at just $24, and comes in either black or white options.
If you need a new place to put your computer, or a chair to sit in FlexiSpot is offering up to 30% off its line of standing desks. You grab this beautiful mahogany top with a gray frame for just $244, for example. We’ve had great experiences with FlexiSpot standing desks, so it’s easy to recommend, especially at this price.
