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.
For a wide range of deals, as well as live price comparisons, check out our sister site Getprice.
Fanatical is currently offering some neat eBook bundles if you're thinking of dipping your toes into game development. The discounts are extraordinarily steep, so it might be worth diving in even if you've only got a dim desire to get started on development.

A good headset for less than $50, and free shipping if you're a Prime subscriber. This is the wired Xbox-licensed version, but it'll work on PC. Via Amazon.View Deal
Razer DeathAdder Elite | now AU$49.52
This Chroma-enabled 16,000dpi gaming mouse usually retails for over fifty bucks (and often above sixty), so this is a good price, with free shipping for Prime subscribers. Via Amazon.View Deal
Red Dead Redemption 2 | AU$66.20 (usually AU$89.95)
Rockstar's long-awaited cowboy opus is finally on PC, and this deal on Green Man Gaming is the steepest discount it's had yet. A nice time to jump aboard.View Deal
Darksiders 3 - $19.95 (usually around $80)
20 bucks for a blockbuster game that's barely a year old is a good deal. It's via The Gamesmen, so if you've got an outlet nearby it might be worth ducking in. Online, you'll need to add an additional $7 to that price.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) - $82.75 (usually 89.95)
Green Man Gaming is offering a decent discount on this year's Call of Duty, at least until it releases on October 25. (via Green Man Gaming)View Deal
