This might just be the most worthwhile Amazon Prime Day in terms of PC gaming deals we've seen. Not because Jeff Bezos has suddenly come over all benevolent towards us PC people, but because we're nearing the end of this current generation of hardware and Prime Day sits just before the new one kicks off.

This is the last sales event before the new Intel and AMD processor ranges come out, and before AMD and Nvidia launch their new graphics cards. That means you can be pretty sure that, in the coming days, there will be discounts on full gaming PCs, gaming laptops, CPUs, and yes, even deals on graphics cards.

What a world, eh? Wait for two years for GPUs to actually become available and suddenly there are so many that people actually start discounting them. That's partly because this generation is coming to an end, but also because the cryptocurrency mining boom has gone bust and second-hand graphics cards are likely to ease demand for brand new ones from this current generation.

And, if there are more GPUs on the shelves, there's a greater chance that we'll actually see them on offer. The high end cards are the most likely to see serious discounts—indeed, there are already sub-MSRP RTX 3090 Ti and RX 6950 XT GPUs on offer today—but what you should really be looking out for are the mid-range cards, such as the RTX 3060 Ti. Those are likely the furthest away from being replaced by next-gen versions.

But there will also be a host of Amazon's own tech on offer, alongside other PC components, peripherals, gaming monitors, and maybe even gaming chairs. And I would almost guarantee that you'll see some stellar discounts on SSDs as the new PCIe 5.0 generation draws close.

But it won't just be Amazon that will have discounts on PC gaming hardware, as every retailer under the sun will likely hitch themselves to Jeff's sales wagon. That means you can expect the likes of Dell/Alienware to be shipping discounted laptops and full PCs, as well as Ebuyer and Overclockers hoping to one-up Amazon and each other with tech deals.

And who benefits if everyone's vying to offer the biggest discounts? Us! 

We'll be around to dig through the deals around the net to pick the ones you should be paying attention to, and which ones are either too good to be true, or simply not worth your cash even with a hefty discount. And our deals-hunting bots will be on hand from now until the Amazon Prime Day dust has settled, picking the best deals in every category every hour of the day.

    Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 | RTX 3060 | Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 120Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £899.99 £749.99 at Amazon (save £150)
    This is the cheapest RTX 3060 gaming laptop we’ve found, and the first time that it’s ever dropped below the £800 mark, too. Granted there are some sacrifices made to deliver the GPU performance at this price. Notably the RAM and SSD are pretty miserly, but compromises always have to be made, and the CPU and GPU combination will deliver great gaming performance on the 120Hz 1080p screen.View Deal

    Asus TUF Gaming F15 | RTX 3060 | Core i7-11800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,199 £849.95 at Overclockers (save £350)
    This RTX 3060-powered laptop has dropped below the £1000 mark for Prime Day. This machine offers 16GB RAM, an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, and a 512GB SSD. The 15.6-inch screen won’t leave you squinting at the screen on longer gaming sessions either, thanks to that 144Hz refresh rate.View Deal

    MSI Katana GF66 | RTX 3060 | Core i7-11800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,199 £899 at Amazon (save £300)
    This is a healthy saving on a gaming laptop. It boasts an RTX 3060, 16GB RAM, and an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor. The 512GB NVMe SSD may be a touch on the small side but this laptop is still a solid choice if you’re looking for a portable alternative to a gaming desktop for under £1,000.View Deal

    Lenovo Legion 5 | RTX 3070 | Ryzen 7 5800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,399.99 £1,199.97 at Amazon (save £200.02)
    The only bad thing I have to say about this spec is the size of that SSD, ideally I’d want a cool 1TB. But I can compromise when it allows me to grab an RTX 3070-powered laptop with an excellent AMD Zen 3 CPU for less than £1,200. The rest of the spec is excellent, and hey, external SSDs aren’t that pricey these days if you need a little more storage on the go.View Deal

    Dell G15 |RTX 3050 | Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 120Hz | 8GB RAM | 256GB SSD | £749 £659 at Dell (save £90)
    This has dropped to a great price if you’re looking to break into the portable PC gaming market. The Nvidia Geforce RTX 3050 will let you run most modern games comfortably if you drop the settings a touch. And, while the RAM and the 256GB storage might be a little on the low side, the saving makes this machine well worth considering. Especially as it’s one of the few machines that you can still upgrade memory and SSD later on if you wish.View Deal

    Amazon Prime Day gaming PC deals

    Lenovo Legion T5 |  RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 5 | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,099 £799 at Amazon (save £300)
    If you’re looking to break into the wonderful world of PC gaming, this is a great machine for the price. Boasting an RTX 3060 GPU, an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, and 16GB of RAM, you’ll play most games comfortably. The 1TB of SSD space isn’t to be sneezed at either and means you’ll have plenty of room to store your favourite games. At under £800, this gaming desktop is the cheapest it’s ever been.View Deal

    CCL Horizon 5M | RTX 3060 Ti | Ryzen 5 4500 | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,053.99 at CCL
    It’s worth stating up front that this machine is only this price because you can choose to have it ship without a Windows 11 installation. That will save you £65 off the standard price and you can install your own OS, whether that’s Linux or Windows, when you get your system home. That will gain you an RTX 3060 Ti system for a decent price. The only let-down is maybe that odd Ryzen 4000-series CPU. It’s a Zen 2 based chip, but still a six-core, 12-thread option.View Deal

    Acer Predator Orion 3000 | RTX 3060 Ti | Core i5 12400 | 16GB RAM | 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD | £1,299 £1,099 at Currys (save £200)
    Right, the first thing to say is, yes, that SSD is miserly beyond all degrees. Just 256GB of speedy storage just isn’t enough in 2022. But this is PC gaming and sometimes compromises have to be made, and there is still plenty of sloooooow storage to help. And a larger SSD is just a cheap upgrade down the line. The rest of the spec is fine, though, with one of our favourite Intel budget chips, and the excellent RTX 3060 Ti helping you plough through games.View Deal

    HP Omen 25L | RX 6600 XT | Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,349 £1,099 at Currys (save £250)
    The RX 6600 XT will deliver a slightly higher level of gaming performance than the RTX 3060. I mean, it’s close, but on average across our benchmarking suite the AMD card has the edge at 1440p gaming by a few frames per second. And this rig will deliver a great 1440p gaming experience, with an eight-core, 16-thread CPU, and plenty of storage and memory to back it all up.View Deal

    HP Omen | RTX 3090 | Core i9 11900K | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD + 1TB HDD x2 | £2799 £2199 at Amazon (save £600)
    This gaming PC is for those that don’t mind spending some extra cash for a higher-end rig. With an RTX 3090, an 11th Gen processor, and 32GB of RAM, you won’t struggle to run any game on max settings. This PC boasts a lot of storage too, giving you a total of 3TB to house even the beefiest AAA games without breaking a sweat. The current price is also the cheapest we’ve seen this particular machine.View Deal

    Amazon Prime Day Gaming Monitor deals

    MSI Optix G241 | 24-inch | 1080p | IPS | 144Hz | £189 £138.97 at Amazon (save £50.02)
    This is normally the sort of price you’d expect to pay for maybe a 1080p TN panel, or an IPS with just a 75Hz refresh rate. But this is a genuine gaming monitor with great specs for an entry-level screen. This will make your games look great, and doesn’t need an amazing GPU to do so.View Deal

    Asus TUF Gaming | 27-inch | 1080p | IPS | 280Hz | £299 £249 at Amazon (save £50)
    The TUF screens have always been good value, and this one is no exception. This IPS panel may only boast 1080p but come with astounding 280Hz refresh rate, this price makes it well worth a look for anyone looking to up their competitiveness in online shooters. Traditionally super-high refresh rates have commanded a high price, even with 1080p TN. But here you’re getting a good-looking IPS panel to boot.View Deal

    Samsung Odyssey G5 Series | 27-inch | 1440p | VA | 144Hz | £299.99 £249.99 at Amazon (save £50)
    This monitor has never been cheaper than this, and delivers a lot of screen for the money, too. You’re getting a quality Samsung panel, with a 1440p native res and a 144Hz refresh rate. It’s also sporting a tight 1000R curve and a 27-inch display which will just about deliver on the extra immersion that’s meant to engender. You’re also getting FreeSync Premium support, so low input latency and a smooooooth gaming experience.View Deal

    Gigabyte G27Q | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 144Hz | £339 £259 at Amazon (save £80)
    If you’re looking for a new panel to compliment your gaming set-up, this is a good choice all around, hitting the sweet spot for a modern gaming monitor at a fantastic price. It’s not the fanciest-looking monitor out there, but it boasts 1440p native resolution with a 144Hz refresh rate, and the rich colours more than make up for its rather basic aesthetic. If you’re still on the fence, this is as cheap as it’s ever been.View Deal

    LG UaGear Curved | 34-inch | 1080p | IPS | 144Hz | £449 £349 at Amazon (save £100)
    This monitor is a great choice if you want to break into the world of curved monitors. As well as a 1ms response time, this IPS panel has a relatively speedy 144Hz refresh rate. That’s a lot of monitor for the £350 price tag, and would be a fine addition to any gaming set-up. Our only note of warning would be that 1080 pixel height can look more restrictive than normal in an uawide on the desktop, but will still look great in games.View Deal

    Iiyama G-Master | 34-inch | 1440p | VA | 144Hz | £420 £324.99 at Amazon (save £95.01)
    This is a great price for an uawide gaming monitor, and it’s never been as cheap as this before. I’ve got the flat-screen version of the screen, and it’s been a great purchase for me. And, though I’m not necessarily a fan of curved panels, on a 3440 x 1440 uawide resolution it makes the most sense of any curved screen.View Deal
