Amazon's Prime Early Access (opens in new tab) sale, or Prime Day: The Sequel, as we like to call it, has continued into its second day. This hub is where we're corralling all the best deals on prebuilt gaming PCs. Despite this being a made-up Amazon sales day, there are some other retailers jumping into the game, including Newegg and custom PC builder iBuyPower.

Prime Early Access is showing discounts on RTX 30-series graphics card powered gaming PCs, along with AMD's latest cards. Between the RTX 40-series release, AMD's RDNA3 teasers, and Intel's Arc GPUs, the market is getting a little heated. That means plenty of gaming PCs are seeing discounted prices in anticipation of the spicy, graphical battle royal to come.

The components in the gaming PCs on this list will stay relevant for some time, though. You'll just have to make peace with the fact you'll soon be a generation behind, GPU-wise—but that's basically always the case. It might mean potentially two or three generations when it comes to CPUs, depending on your budget, but you can still get some decent gaming sessions in on the PCs below.

We're seeing the most discounts on prebuilt machines with high-end GPUs like the RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti, and Radeon RX 6900XT. It makes sense as those cards be replaced first. The next generation looks to be a significant performance increase over the current standard, so expect high-end machines to boast bigger savings. 

Of course, the GPU makes up a huge portion of a gaming system's prowess, but that's not the only component to pay attention to. CPUs are seeing price drops due to the AMD 7000-series announcements and Intel's allusion to 13th Gen CPUs coming next year.  On top of that, SSD prices continue to tumble, and RAM (at least DDR4) has never been cheaper.

We've spent the both days of the sale tracking down the best discounts, and updating this page with the best gaming PC deals they can find. So keep checking back to see what we've unearthed. Alternatively, if you're in the market for a laptop, then check out the best Amazon Prime Early Access laptop deals (opens in new tab).

iBuyPower Gaming RDY | RTX 3080 | Core i7 12700K | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,399 (opens in new tab)

iBuyPower Gaming RDY | RTX 3080 | Core i7 12700K | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,399 $1,899 at iBuyPower (save $500) (opens in new tab)
This RTX 3080-powered gaming rig can be on your desktop in two days. In a world where sometimes buying a new gaming PC would take months, that's a refreshing buying experience. The rest of the spec is solid, too, with a decent Alder Lake CPU and the 16GB RAM/1TB SSD you'd expect at minimum for a modern rig.

AVGPC Hellfire | RTX 3060 Ti | Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD + 2TB HDD | $1,299 (opens in new tab)

AVGPC Hellfire | RTX 3060 Ti | Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD + 2TB HDD | $1,299 $1,199 at Amazon (save $100) (opens in new tab)
It may not be the most powerful CPU/GPU combo ever, but at that price, and with tons of storage space, this is a pretty nice entry-level gaming PC. It will be able to knock out good frames at 1440p if you make some concessions (use DLSS when available), and with dual channel RAM it'll be a good multitasker.

HP Omen 25L | RTX 3070 | Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD | $1,749.99 (opens in new tab)

HP Omen 25L | RTX 3070 | Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD | $1,749.99 $1,419.99 at HP (save $330) (opens in new tab)
HP has introduced a few different case sizes for its Omen line, but this 25L chassis is certainly big enough, and it's good-looking in white too. It's what's on the inside the counts of course, and the combo of an RTX 3070 and Alder Lake Core i7 12700 is simply beautiful for this much cash. The 512GB is a bit on the small side, but it is a WD Black, and you do get a 1TB hard drive, too. This is a great PC for 1440p, and will do the job at 4K.

Skytech Shiva | RTX 3080 | Ryzen 5 5600X | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,399.99 (opens in new tab)

Skytech Shiva | RTX 3080 | Ryzen 5 5600X | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,399.99 $1,699.99 at Amazon (save $700) (opens in new tab)
Knocking $700 off the price of this rig has made superbly tempting. It may not have the most current CPU but that RTX 3080, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB SSD makes it a gaming PC which will run happily out of the box without any issues. A little more RAM wouldn't have gone amiss for the price, but it'll still ace most games you throw at it.

NZXT Starter Plus | RTX 3060 | Core i5 10400F | 16GB RAM | 500GB SSD | $1,049.99 at NZXT (opens in new tab)

NZXT Starter Plus | RTX 3060 | Core i5 10400F | 16GB RAM | 500GB SSD | $1,049.99 at NZXT (opens in new tab)
A nice entry-level gaming spec and ever so stylish case here,  backed up by a decent chunk of storage and a good amount of RAM for gaming, as well as a 360mm all-in-one cooler. The 10th Gen Intel CPU may seem a little outdated as we stare down the 13th Gen, but don't let that put you off.

$2,099.99 (opens in new tab)

ABS Gladiator | RTX 3070 Ti | Core i7 10700F | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,099.99 $1,699.99 at Newegg (save $400) (opens in new tab)
The GeForce RTX 3070Ti is a great card, and although that's a 10th Gen Intel CPU it's paired with, this gaming PC will see you right at 4K. Add 1TB of NVMe SSD storage and 16GB dual channel RAM, and you're onto a winner. That's a decent saving on a high-powered machine with great components to back it up, nothing to complain about here.

HP Omen GT13 30L | RTX 3090 | Core i9 10850K | 32GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $3,094.99 (opens in new tab)

HP Omen GT13 30L | RTX 3090 | Core i9 10850K | 32GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $3,094.99 $2,767.99 at Amazon (save $327) (opens in new tab)
A top-tier Nvidia GPU here, and although its paired with a 10th Gen Intel CPU, it was top of its class at the time and still relevant today. On top of it, you get a smashing 1TB NVMe boot drive and an ungodly amount of RAM to play with. This one is sure to smash 4K gaming, and let you multitask to the max.

CUK MPG Velox | RTX 3090 | Core i9 12900KF | 64GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD + 3TB HDD | $3,099.99 (opens in new tab)

CUK MPG Velox | RTX 3090 | Core i9 12900KF | 64GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD + 3TB HDD | $3,099.99 $2,899.99 at Amazon (save $200) (opens in new tab)
This one might look a little overpriced, but when you consider most gaming PCs we've spotted with higher-powered GPUs this deals season have come with 11th Gen or under CPUs, a cutting edge, Core i9 12900KF gives it a beastly advantage. With ridiculous amounts of storage and RAM on top of that, it's actually not a bad deal.

Amazon Early Access Office PC deals

XPS Desktop | RX 6600 XT | Intel Core i5 12400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD | $1,149.99 (opens in new tab)

XPS Desktop | RX 6600 XT | Intel Core i5 12400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD | $1,149.99 $949.99 at Dell (save $200) (opens in new tab)
It's marketed as a standard desktop machine, but there's no reason you couldn't some great gaming out of this one with a CPU/GPU combo like that. It's a better spec (and cheaper) than some of the Alienware machines we've seen from Dell, and although there's only a single channel of 16GB memory, and the boot drive is a little small, you do get a nice hunk of deep storage.

XPS Desktop | RTX 3090 | Intel Core i7 12700 | 32GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD | $3149.99 (opens in new tab)

XPS Desktop | RTX 3090 | Intel Core i7 12700 | 32GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD | $3149.99 $2,349.99 at Dell (save $800) (opens in new tab)
This one may not be slathered in RGB lighting, but my God will it game. Not only does it come well within our recommended pricing for an RTX 3090 powered machine, that's an incredible saving, especially with a 12th Gen CPU, and topped with 32GB of RAM for multitasking. Only thing that could do with an upgrade is the storage, but it's easy to switch boot drives (opens in new tab) after the fact, just check our our SSD deals (opens in new tab) if you want to give that a go. Oh man, and there's even a CD drive.

Amazon Prime Early Access UK gaming PCs

Acer Predator Orion 3000 | RTX 3060 Ti | Core i5 12400 | 16GB RAM | 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD | £1,199 (opens in new tab)

Acer Predator Orion 3000 | RTX 3060 Ti | Core i5 12400 | 16GB RAM | 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD | £1,199 £1,099 at Currys (save £100) (opens in new tab)
Right, the first thing to say is, yes, that SSD is miserly beyond all degrees. Just 256GB of speedy storage just isn't enough in 2022. But this is PC gaming and sometimes compromises have to be made, and there is still plenty of sloooooow storage to help. And a larger SSD is just a cheap upgrade down the line. The rest of the spec is fine, though, with one of our favourite Intel budget chips, and the excellent RTX 3060 Ti helping you plough through games.

HP Omen 25L | RX 6600 XT | Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,349 (opens in new tab)

HP Omen 25L | RX 6600 XT | Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,349 £1,199 at Currys (save £150) (opens in new tab)
The RX 6600 XT will deliver a slightly higher level of gaming performance than the RTX 3060. I mean, it's close, but on average across our benchmarking suite the AMD card has the edge at 1440p gaming by a few frames per second. And this rig will deliver a great 1440p gaming experience, with an eight-core, 16-thread CPU, and plenty of storage and memory to back it all up.

When is Amazon Prime Early Access 2022?

Amazon Prime Early Access, or Prime Day 2, started at 12 am PT, Tuesday October 11, and will run all the way through to 11.59 pm on Wednesday October 12. These 48 hours will be an intense bout of PC gaming deals, before we get into the meatier discounts expected to drop on Black Friday—that's November 25 for anyone willing to wait that long. Truly, Amazon isn't messing around when it says Early Access. In fact, let's just have a deal event every month. 

Alan has been writing about PC tech since before 3D graphics cards existed, and still vividly recalls having to fight with MS-DOS just to get games to load. He fondly remembers the killer combo of a Matrox Millenium and 3dfx Voodoo, and seeing Lara Croft in 3D for the first time. He's very glad hardware has advanced as much as it has though, and is particularly happy when putting the latest M.2 NVMe SSDs, AMD processors, and laptops through their paces. He has a long-lasting Magic: The Gathering obsession but limits this to MTG Arena these days.
