The Cyber Monday gaming PC deals are today out in force, with fresh offers on a host of different systems, at different price points, with very different hardware. There are even some new Nvidia RTX 30-series systems on offer, shipping before Christmas too. And many holdover deals from Black Friday remain, too, so you're spoiled for choice.
There are absolutely still bargains to be had on prebuilt desktops, often coming in at far less than the price it would cost you to build it yourself. Such as a $320 discount on a gaming PC outfitted with a Core i7 10700 CPU and GeForce RTX 2070 GPU, as well as several deals that will net you a coveted RTX 3070 or 3080 this side of the new year. Keep an eye on this page for more Cyber Monday PC deals as they come in throughout the day.
Unfortunately there are no deals on RTX 3080 or RX 6800 XT graphics cards this Cyber Monday—finding them even in stock is practically impossible. But prebuilt gaming rigs are the one way you can actually get ahold of one of those fancy new cards today. It's a route to consider if you need a whole new PC, as opposed to just a quick upgrade.
Though you also won't be able to get your hands on AMD's Ryzen 5000 processors, either, system builders can. That means the two most exciting parts in PC gaming right now are only easily accessible through a full PC like the ones below. As a bonus, some last-gen parts are ripe for price cuts, so we're seeing some good prices on PCs using those components.
We've split our recommendations up into three different categories: gaming PCs with Nvidia's latest GPUs, current-gen gaming PCs, and cheaper office PCs. Because, y'know, there are times when you just need a dumb box to do more mundane tasks.

What to look out for in a Cyber Monday gaming PC
There's only the slimmest of chances that we'll see machines packing the latest and greatest gear hit the bargain bins. The fact that every retailer appears to be selling every RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090 they get their hands on means that there's no need for them to try and entice customers with Nvidia's latest tech. The same is true for AMD's Ryzen 5000 processors, and I'm guessing it'll be a similar story with the Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards.
The shortage of new hardware has had two effects on the pre-built system market. The first is that it has never been busier, so if you do want a cutting-edge system, you're going to need to throw some money down with your system builder of choice if you want anything this side of Christmas (assuming it isn't too late already). If you desperately want an RTX 3080, this is still probably the quickest way of getting one.
The second, and the one that's potentially more interesting to anyone looking to grab a Cyber Monday gaming PC bargain, is that the last-gen machines just aren't as tempting as they were before this autumn's tech bonanza. At least not for the same money. All this last-gen kit doesn't just miraculously disappear though, retailers and system builders need to sell it to make some money back.
Here's the thing, there's absolutely nothing wrong with machines built around Zen 2, Intel 10th-Gen CPUs, and Nvidia RTX 2080s if the price is right. If you'd bought such a machine six months ago, you'd have enjoyed some great gaming with it, and that doesn't change with the release of new hardware. Don't be put off because such machines don't use the very latest, greatest hardware, basically. There are still some perfect machines out there.
As ever when hunting for bargains, focus on what you need and don't be swayed to grab a bargain just because it's cheap.
