Our favorite Black Friday deals

The below are all of our favorite Black Friday deals. Many of them are still alive! Some have even gone slightly down in price. Some others increased in price dramatically so we removed them.

A bunch of us at PC Gamer bought these items for ourselves. Blue Yeti microphone? Hell yes! And give me that 750GB SSD for $1200 please.

SSDs

US DEALS:

Crucial MX300 750 GB SATA SSD: $120, B&H (save $50). Killer deal if you're looking for a high capacity SSD! (Currently out of stock, but check back.)

Intel 600p 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD: $290, Newegg (save $110) We've long-since advocated for SSDs as one of the single most important components in putting together a snappy rig, and that advice holds strong as the super-fast M.2 NVMe SSDs become more and more available. Intel's 600p is one of the slowest NVMe drives, but it still beats SATA drives and pricing is similar.

Samsung 850 Evo 500GB SATA: $130, Newegg (save $50), Amazon. The lowest price we've seen on Samsung's drive, one of the best SATA offerings. You also get a free copy of Watch Dogs 2 (at Newegg), making this a potentially great deal.

Seagate HDD 4TB 64MB: $100 after promo code (ESCFFGJ38), Newegg (save $65). Cheapest 4TB drive we've found. Deal expires at 11:59pm.  

UK DEALS:

Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD: £150, Overclockers.UK (save £50). If you're staying with the SATA interface, the Samsung 850 EVO series are the best in both performance and price. Samsung has been leading the charge on SSDs. There's really no excuse anymore to boot Windows off a hard drive.

Graphics cards

US DEALS:

Asus GTX 1070 Turbo 8GB: $370 at Amazon (save $46)

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Windforce OC: $235 (after $15 MIR), Newegg, (save $25)

Zotac GTX 1060 3GB Mini: $185 at Amazon (save $15)

UK DEALS:

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition: £620, Overclockers.UK (save £80). Many places are now putting the Founders Edition Nvidia cards on sale, which is good since they're basically reference clocked cards with a blower cooling solution. (Currently out of stock, but says more 'available soon.')

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 GameRock 8GB: £380, Overclockers.UK (save £40)

XFX RX 480 Black Edition 8GB: £230, Overclockers.UK (save £30)

Gaming monitors

US DEALS:

Asus ROG Swift 27-inch curved (PG278Q) 2560x1440 144Hz 1ms with G-Sync: $500, Fry's after promo code (2286478) and rebate ($50) (save $200) This is the best price we found on this great WQHD monitor with a high refresh rate and G-Sync. You may need to signup with an email address to receive a new promo code.

Asus ROG Swift 34-inch curved (PG348Q) 3440x1440 IPS 100Hz with G-Sync: $1,100, Amazon (save $200)

Acer Predator 24-inch (XB241H) 1920x1080 144Hz with G-Sync: $350, Amazon (save $50). Unfortunately, G-Sync monitors still come with a premium of a few hundred dollars over their FreeSync brethren, but they're worth the price if you want a variable refresh rate while using an Nvidia GPU. This Acer Predator is ideal for fast-paced 1080p gaming, and while it's not a huge discount, $350 is the cheapest it's ever been.

UK DEALS:

Asus 34-inch ROG Swift (PG348Q) 3440x1440 with G-Sync 100Hz: £980, Overclockers.UK (save £310). While still on the higher end of the price spectrum, the ROG Swift series from Asus are our favorite displays to game on around the office. Can't go wrong with both resolution and G-Sync.

Gaming headsets and headphones
