The best Australian PC gaming deals this week

Last updated: August 14, 2017

Each week, we trawl through the deepest, darkest corners of the world wide web in order to unearth some of the best PC gaming deals in Australia. This story will largely focus on highlighting PC hardware and peripherals discounts, but if there are any appealing AU-exclusive games bargains, we'll include them too.

Without further ado, here's our current selection of deals — as always, if you spot anything else good, let us know in the comments section below. This round-up will be updated weekly... or just whenever there's an especially good bargain to be had. As bargains expire, we'll remove them from the page.

Hardware

added August 14, 2017

AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, 16GB - $1799 @ Scorptec (usually $1899)

$100 off doesn’t seem like a big deal at the price range but if you’re in the market, it’s better than nothing. There’s an in-depth look at this card over here if you’re tempted. Available until August 21 or when stock runs out.

In Win 901 Mini-ITX Chassis (Aluminium) - $149 @ PC Case Gear (usually $239)

A sleek, minimal and far from ostentatious PC case. Great for those who detest flashing lights and sci-fi bling. Available while stock lasts.

ASUS S1151 EATX Maximus VIII Extreme DDR4 Motherboard with Wireless-AC - $495 @ Computer Alliance (usually $735)

It’s a couple of years old now, but this super-premium Z170 board scored rather highly back in 2015, will support Intel’s 7-series Core i (aka Kaby Lake) processors and the discount is quite dramatic, if it fits your needs. Available while stock lasts.

ASUS ROG GT51CH Core i7 Geforce GTX1080 Gaming PC - $3399 @ Scorptec (usually $3999)

A nice, $600 discount on a standalone gaming PC. If you’ve got the money, this will sort you out for both desktop gaming and VR for at least a few years. Available until August 31 or while stock lasts.

Peripherals

added August 14, 2017

ASUS PG348Q ROG Swift 34inch G-Sync IPS Curved Gaming Monitor - $1699 @ Scorptec (usually $1779)

This widescreen monitor is pretty much our favourite product in the category, but it’s usually very expensive. An $80 discount hardly makes it more affordable, but if you’re in the market for one now might be the time to snap. Available while stock lasts.

LG 34UC89G-B 34inch Curved UltraWide G-Sync IPS Gaming Monitor - $1,249 @ Scorptec (usually $1499)

While the ASUS widescreen monitor above is our pick as far as the best in this category, this LG effort is pretty good too – and comparatively cheap. Available until August 18 or while stock lasts.

SteelSeries Wired SENSEI Professional Laser USB Gaming Mouse 62150 - $39 @ Computer Alliance (normally $109)

Huge discount on this very decentm 11,400 DCPI gaming mouse. With a drop like this it might not last long, and there’s a limit to one unit per customer. Available until they’re gone.

added August 7, 2017

Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD (MZ-75E500) - $219 @ Dick Smith (reduced from $279)

A pretty decent price for an external SSD, though keep in mind there are no SATA cables included, though this deal will chuck in a micro-USB to USB cable for an extra $3. Available while stock lasts.

Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved Monitor - $899 @ Microsoft (usually $999)

This usually costs upwards of a grand, but on the Microsoft store you can get it for more than $250 off. Good if you want to get involved in aspect ratio arguments in the comments section. Available while stock lasts.

Update: While this deal was originally $725 at time of publication, as of Monday, August 14 the price is now $899 – still a $100 discount, but not quite as much a steal.

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Gaming Mouse -  $152 @ Kogan (usually $269.95)

A dramatic discount on this, and if you’re in the market for a wireless gaming mouse it comes highly recommended by our reviewer Wes. Available while stock lasts.

LG 34" 21:9 2560x1080 Full HD UltraWide IPS LED Gaming Monitor - $399 @ Kogan (usually $649)

Another neat widescreen monitor, especially if you're in the market for something a bit more midrange. Available while stock lasts.
