The Cyber Monday gaming PC deals are the perfect opportunity – or continuation of the perfect opportunity – to get a new PC, upgrade your machine, or jump straight into PC gaming with your first machine
We are seeing a particular lean and emphasis on pre-built PCs with a lot of these machines from retailers and builders offering excellent Cyber Monday gaming pc deals. Getting a pre-made computer takes away the labor and research required to build your own – which is fine if you like that. The usual compromise is paying more for the service of a build, but you often get a warranty too. And what 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.
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.

$999.99 899.99 at Best Buy
A variant of the PC I use every day, I can tell you that this is a great machine for work and play. It’s a bit light on the RAM, but you can double that relatively cheaply after acquiring this machine. A great offering.View Deal
Alienware R10 series | AMD Ryzen 5 3500 – Ryzen 9 3950X CPUs | RTX 2060 – RTX 2080Ti; AMD 5600 – RX 5700XT | 16-64GB RAM | up to 2TB SSD + 2TB SSD combos | from $1,077.99 at Dell
If you prefer your gaming PCs with premium quality, but also built around an AMD processor then Alienware’s R10 Auroras are for you. These machines will take you over the four-figure mark for sure, but the opportunities for quality here are almost unmatched.View Deal
Alienware R11 series | Intel 10th-gen CPUs | GTX 1650 Super – RTX 2080Ti | AMD 5600 – RX 5700XT | 8-64GB RAM | up to 2TB SSD + 2TB SSD combos | from $891.79 at Dell
A big benefit of going to Dell now is that there are often deals forthcoming, and all their machines will have the latest tech – including Intel’s 10th-generation processors. As a starting point, these are fantastic machines, and at that price point, a fantastic price to start off with too.View Deal
HP Omen GT13 | Ryzen 5 3600 | GTX 1660 Super | 8GB RAM | 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $949.99 at Best Buy
From a recognized range of reliable and solid gaming PCs this Omen model is a well-balanced build. It’s probably one of the best off-the-shelf, non-ray-tracing PCs you can find right now.View Deal
Expired or out of stock deals
We’ll move deals to this section as they expire or go out of stock, and if they return, we’ll update our listings so you can check out every option available to you.
SkyTech Archangel | Ryzen 5 3600 | RTX 2060 | 16GB RAM | 500GB SSD | $1,299.99 $949.99 at Newegg View Deal
A great balance of a build here with the graphics card and the processor being the stars of the show in an otherwise very solid build. At $949, this price is going to be tough to beat.
ABS Master Gaming | Intel i5-10400 | RTX 2060 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,099.99 $869.99 at Newegg View Deal
A solid ray-tracing build, this. Everything component-wise evens out and complements one another, you get one of Intel’s latest 10th-generation processors in there too, and at $869.99 – a limited time drop from the previous discount of $949.99 – it’s a very solid deal.
Cyberpower i5-10400 GTX 1660 gaming PC | $799.99 $679.99 at Amazon This pre-built rig from Cyberpower is the perfect entry into PC gaming, and you’ll save a pretty penny going with this deal that saves off $120.View Deal iBUYPOWER BB984V2 | Intel i7-10700 | RTX 2060 | 16GB RAM | 480GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $1,099.99 at Best Buy View Deal
Excellent value for money with this deal just over a thousand dollars. BY going over the four-figure mark a little bit, you get a very competent 10th-gen processor – an i7 variant, no less – and all the components to support great levels of ray-tracing gaming.
SkyTech Chronos | Ryzen 3 3100 | GTX 1650 Super | 8GB RAM | 500GB SSD | $649.99 $599.99 at Amazon View Deal
This SkyTech machine is available for purchase at a rarely seen price of under $600, but it won’t be in stock until January 2. Still, it’s a lean gaming desktop that you can lock in now, and it’s compromised in the right ways to create a solid gaming PC for relatively little money. 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.
iBUYPOWER BB981 | Intel i5-9400F | GTX 1650 Super | 8GB RAM | 240GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $799.99 at Best Buy View Deal
Built around a very solid mid-range CPU, this iBUYPOWER machine is great value. Yeah, the 1650 is the lowest ‘current’ graphics card in Nvidia’s series but the Super variant is reliable and competent. The PC even comes with a mouse and keyboard to get you going. Not that they’ll be the best in the business of course. It’s currently reduced so act now to get this great deal!
CLX SET Gaming Desktop | Ryzen 3 2200G | RTX 2060 | 8GB RAM | 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $999.99 at Best Buy View Deal
A brilliant case and point regarding the compromises needing to be made: here you can get a ray-tracing capable 2060 graphics card, but will have to tone down the processor and RAM a little. Again, nothing that can’t be upgraded down the line.

This is the make and model of the machine I use every day. Mine has a higher spec but it’s the same PC in sprit, build and design so I can vouch for this being a great PC. It won’t be a total AAA, top-setting, 4K cruncher but for value for money, this is something else and offers an awesome gaming machine for well under a grand.

Palciomp makes some great machines with considered builds that often serve up some pleasantly surprising component combinations and this is of that persuasion somewhat.

CyberpowerPC Wyvern | i5-9400F | RTX 2060 | 16GB RAM | 240GB SSD + 1TB HDD | £854.40 at Amazon UK View Deal
This is great value and bags you a ray-tracing-capable machine without too many compromises elsewhere. What’s more CyberpowerPC is a trusted manufacturer so you know it’s going to be quality.
