The Amazon Prime Day deals clock is ticking down, but that doesn't mean there aren't still bargains to be had. We've spent the last few days hunting high and low to find the best deals on gaming laptops, monitors, SSDs, and everything else that makes us PC gamers happy. 

There haven't been a whole lot of individual components deals, but the changing of the current-gen guard might herald some movement on that front around Black Friday next month—Prime Day normally happens in the summer, but was pushed back this year, which probably affected the offerings. We have found some nice deals anyway, though. Here are the best of them that remain.

Asus TUF Gaming A15 | RTX 2060 | $999.99 $799.99 at Best Buy
This is a more affordable version of the model we reviewed earlier this year. It is a fast laptop out of the box with a potent CPU and GPU combo, but we reckon you might want to pick up a second 8GB of RAM, later on, to bump it up a touch. View Deal

Corsair K70 RGB low profile with Cherry MX Speed switches | $̶1̶5̶0̶ $89.99 at Best Buy
The K70 is a great mechanical keyboard. We've used and recommended it for years. This low profile version is a good board, and 90 bucks is a good price for it.View Deal

Dell 32-inch 1440p FreeSync | $449.99 $349.99 at Dell
Dell make lovely monitors, and this 165Hz 1440p panel will make for a great big-screen gaming display. At 32-inches that curve will put you right at the heart of the action and the pixel pitch will still make for a sharp image. The 165Hz refresh is killer though, especially with the FreeSync options.View Deal

SK Hynix Gold S31 1TB SATA SSD | $159.99 $83.99 at Amazon
The S31's 560 MB/s read speeds max out SATA performance, making this a budget SSD that doesn't sacrifice speed. The cheapest 1TB SATA drive you'd actually want to buy right now.View Deal

Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR 3600 | $137.99  $119.99 at Newegg
This speedy DDR4-3600 RAM kit pairs well with the latest AMD Ryzen and Intel's processors. While the CAS latency of 18 isn't too exciting, this kit will still deliver 32GB of RAM for a cent under $120. That's a whole lot of Corsair memory. View Deal

(Sold out) ABS Challenger Gaming PC | Ryzen 5 3600 | GTX 1660 | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $899.99 $549.99 at Newegg
It was nice while it lasted. If it comes back into stock (hit the link above to check), the ABS Gladiator desktop has got an RTX 2070 Super, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD for $1,099.View Deal

When does Prime Day end?

The official end point for Prime Day is 11:59pm PT on October 14, 2020. That's 3am ET on October 15, incidentally. 

Prime Day now takes place across two days, and this year it fell on October 13 and October 14, 2020. That means today, at one minute to midnight Pacific Time, all deals will be over until next year, so best get moving if you want to pick up a bargain. Prime Day 2021 may fall earlier in the calendar year, however, as it has done in previous years.

There's always Black Friday if you miss out on anything today, don't forget.

Dave has been obsessed with gaming since the days of Zaxxon on the Colecovision, and code books for the Commodore Vic 20 (Death Race 2000!). He built his first gaming PC at the tender age of 16, and finally finished bug-fixing the Cyrix-based system around a year later. When he dropped it out of the window. Thankfully it's a lot easier to build a gaming rig now there are no motherboard jumper switches, though he has been breaking technology ever since… at least he gets paid for it now.
