Cyber Monday gaming PC deals 2020: final call on today’s remaining offers

The Cyber Monday gaming PC deals present an excellent opportunity to pick up a new games rig, whether you’re looking to upgrade from your existing set up or make your first moves into the world of PC gaming. There’s a particular focus on pre-built PCs at the moment, with plenty of ready to run machines from retailers and builders set to make excellent Cyber Monday gaming PC deals. You can avoid the additional stress of labor and research required to build your own by going with a pre-made computer – this usually means you’ll pay a bit more for the service of a build, but then you often get a warranty too for peace of mind.

With a whole host of new graphics cards launching this year, we are seeing some still-excellent if slightly older machines get their prices discounted, and also a range of new PCs built with those new graphics cards among the Cyber Monday gaming PC deals being your best option to get one this year. Whatever you’re into though, we’re compiling deals on everything from budget-friendly starters to future-proof investments.

Typically, you can’t find even an entry-level gaming PC for the same price as a PS5 or Xbox Series X, but Cyber Monday deals are bridging that gap and making it possible to find an actual gaming PC for as little as $500. Of course, if you’re looking for something to rival the hot-in-demand RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, or maybe the AMD RX 6800, we’ve also seen a few deals on high-end rigs that are going for hundreds less than usual.

Cyber Monday gaming PC retailers:
US:
Best Buy | Dell | Amazon | Newegg | B&H Photo | Adorama
UK:
Amazon UK | Currys | Overclockers UK | LaptopsDirect | Argos

With these Cyber Monday gaming PC deals, you’ll find there are the closest thing to a true ‘cheap gaming PC deal’, and if the thought of building your own gaming PC doesn’t do it for you, we’ll be keeping you on top of all the best pre-built computer deals going. 

With the release of the aforementioned 30-series graphics cards, and AMD’s new Big Navi GPUs to throw into the mix too, we might see the beginning of some truly historically low prices on pre-built machines that have got the ‘older’ cards and components in them. Machines with 2070s or 2080s, or even this year’s 5600XT graphics cards, might offer the best bang for buck Cyber Monday gaming PC deals given the quality they still offer.

Another point to factor in this year will be the sheer number of folks shifting to more home-working environments. Retailers and PC builders will be acutely aware of this and as a result will try and offer cost-effective ways that cover shoppers for both work and play in one fancy solution, enabling you to have one do-it-all machine, all without having to spend thousands and thousands. 

We’ll be updating this page regularly, so you might even find one of the best gaming PCs – like the ASUS ROG GA15 that I use in my setup – here eventually too. And remember: the one true beauty about gaming PCs is that you can upgrade them down the line meaning compromises are easier to make, and what you see on the specs list isn’t really the true limit of a PC’s potential.

And don’t forget: give the best antivirus software a look just to make sure your brand new gaming PC is well protected. And if you prefer your gaming machine portable, then fear not, as there will be plenty of Cyber Monday gaming laptop deals too. But for now, here are some of the best early PC deals we’ve seen.

Tone down the settings on the latest and greatest and you’ll be fine, and you’ll be positively flying with slightly older or more lightweight games. View Deal
