Cyber Monday 2021 in Australia: here are all the bargains that are still available

Cyber Monday deals

Black Friday 2021 ended up being utterly massive: while the official day was November 26, the deals actually kicked off as early as Monday, November 21. So make no mistake, the Aussie online retail landscape is not letting up: Cyber Monday happened yesterday, but now that the big sale season is technically over, retailers are still offering big savings. If you don't want to spend, it may be time to log off.

But if you do want to spend, we've rounded up the best of what's on offer. As per usual, in the PC gaming space the likes of laptops, monitors and peripherals dominate: if you're looking for a top-of-the-line GPU then you're probably out of luck, unless you buy a laptop with one inside.

Without further ado, here's what we've found:

Where are the best Cyber Monday PC gaming deals?

Alienware Aurora R12 desktop

Alienware Aurora R12 desktop | i5 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | RTX 3080 Ti | AU$3,623 AU$2,899 on Dell eBay
Buying an RTX 3080 Ti is pretty dang hard in Australia at present, so a prebuild is the easiest way to buy a 30 series GPU at present. And the price is right, here: for these specs, that's a pretty powerful PC you're getting for under AU$3,000. This is an eBay deal, and you'll need the code PLSDELL to get the price listed above.

If you're after a HDR monitor, this is worth a look: it's an LED QHD affair with a 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time and FreeSync 2 support. So it's an incredibly smooth operator, if you've got the rig to make the most of it. Via MWave.

Cyber Monday storage deals in Australia

Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB NVMe SSD

Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB NVMe SSD | AU$349 AU$299
For our money, this is the best NVMe SSD for PCIe 3.0 speed, and it has that dependable Samsung reliability too. This is the 2TB model and that amount of space for a touch under AU$300 is good stuff, especially from a prestigious brand. If you're after just 1TB, that's currently AU$155, down from AU$189. Via MWave.

WD Black SN850 1TB NVMe SSD

WD Black SN850 1TB NVMe SSD | AU$299 AU$215.15

Crucial P5 Plus 1TB NVMe SSD

Crucial P5 Plus 1TB NVMe SSD | AU$259 AU$239
When it comes to PCIe 4.0 NVMe storage, the Crucial P5 series is usually on the affordable side. This AU$20 discount doesn't seem to be a lot but it is, at least, a discount on some blisteringly fast storage. Via Scorptec.

Cyber Monday Gaming Chair deals in Australia

Secretlab Titan Evo (2022 series) |

Secretlab Titan Evo (2022 series) | AU$679 from AU$644 at Secretlab (save AU$35)
It may not be the most jaw dropping discount, but a nice AU$35 off the best gaming chair is much better than nothing. It sits right at the top of our best gaming chairs list for a reason: This thing is comfortable, stylish, and full of useful, innovative features.

Cyber Monday Gaming Mice deals in Australia

Razer DeathAdder V2 wired mouse

Razer DeathAdder V2 wired mouse | AU$139.95 AU$66
A very nice price on our favourite gaming mouse, which combines simplicity with ruggedness with the usual RGB adornments. This is a AU$73.95 saving on a mouse with one of the best sensors available, and will make the majority of gamers happy. Via Amazon.

Logitech G203 Hero Lightsync

Logitech G203 Hero Lightsync | AU$69.95 AU$35
This is our second favourite gaming mouse, chiefly for its balance of quality and affordability. Black Friday ain't going to make it a better mouse but it is going to make it even more affordable: it's now the cost of an extremely cheap night out. Via Amazon.

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed wireless mouse

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed wireless mouse | AU$109.95 AU$59
More than half-price on this wireless ergonomic gaming mouse, which according to our review boasts a long battery life, "near-zero latency" and comfort. If you're after a no-compromise wireless affair this price is hard to beat. Via Amazon.

Cyber Monday Gaming Keyboard deals in Australia

Corsair K63 wireless TKL mechanical keyboard

Corsair K63 wireless TKL mechanical keyboard | AU$179 AU$89.50
If you're after a compact (read: tenkeyless) wireless mechanical keyboard, this Cherry MX Red affair is well worth a look, especially with this huge discount. Boasts USB 3.0 or 3.1 connectivity, Bluetooth 4.2, and the usual array of RGBs. Via Mwave.

Corsair K100 RGB mechanical keyboard

Corsair K100 RGB mechanical keyboard | AU$379 AU$305
While the K100 RGB Optical is our fave gaming keyboard, this is where you should go if you prefer mechanical keys. Other than that they're the same: the usual RGB shenanigans are here, the build quality is astounding, and this one has a palm rest and Elgato integration too. Via Amazon.

HyperX Alloy Origins 60

HyperX Alloy Origins 60 | AU$179 AU$124
Maybe you not only love tenkeyless keyboards, but you actually hate the tenkeys. This mechanical red switch keyboard is incredibly small, but that doesn't mean it can't sparkle with the usual RGB niceties. One for the space poor or efficiency loving. Via Amazon.

Cyber Monday Gaming Headset deals in Australia

Razer Kraken X wired headset

Razer Kraken X wired headset | AU$89 AU$45
This is our pick for the best cheap gaming headset, and that's before this huge AU$44 discount. It may be affordable, but it comes with 7.1 surround sound, the usual rugged Razer build quality, and its ultra lightweight to boot. Via Mwave.

HyperX Cloud Alpha S

HyperX Cloud Alpha S | AU$199 AU$139
A nice discount on this 7.1 surround sound set of cans, with dual chamber drivers, memory foam and the reliable Cloud build quality. We rated its comfort, sound and design in our review. Via MWave.

Razer BlackShark V2 wired headset

Razer BlackShark V2 wired headset | AU$174.95 AU$104
This was AU$96 last week as part of Black Friday, but it's still cheaper than RRP if you're keen. It's our pick for the best gaming headset - a wired affair with 50mm drivers, cardioid mic, noise cancellation, and it's comfortable and sturdy to boot. Via Amazon.

HyperX Cloud II

HyperX Cloud II Pro wired gaming headset| AU$159 AU$89
One of these for less than AU$100 should not be ignored, particularly if you're after a no-fuss wired set of cans with great sound, virtual 7.1 surround sound, and reliable build quality. Via Amazon or alternatively, Mwave.

Razer Kraken X wired headset

Razer Kraken X wired headset | AU$89 AU$45
This is our pick for the best cheap gaming headset, and that's before this huge AU$44 discount. It may be affordable, but it comes with 7.1 surround sound, the usual rugged Razer build quality, and its ultra lightweight to boot. Via Amazon.

Cyber Monday hardware deals in Australia

Gigabyte Z590 Aorus Ultra ATX motherboard

Gigabyte Z590 Aorus Ultra ATX motherboard | AU$359 AU$249
A nice AU$110 off this ATX motherboard with support for both 11th and 10th gen Intel CPUs. This is the cheapest you can get this particular board for in Australia, and while it's no Aorus Tachyon, it's a great deal more affordable. Via Amazon.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X | AU$629 AU$538.35
If you're in the market for one these but baulked previously at its pricetag, this Zen 3 chip is now almost half of its RRP in Australia. This eight-core, 16-thread CPU hits a turbo of 4.7GHz. Via Amazon.

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X | AU$799 AU$739
12 cores, 15 threads... this red team beast got our Editor's Pick award for a reason. In fact, it's probably got more power than you need, but if you're after awesome performance, PCIe 4.0 support, and if you're building a new PC you're going to want to consider this as a priority. Via Amazon.

Asus RT-AX88U dual-band Wi-Fi 6 router

Asus RT-AX88U dual-band Wi-Fi 6 router | AU$499 AU$409 (save AU$90)
Here's AU$90 off this typically stylish router, which offers absolutely crazy wireless speeds of up to 4,804Mbps on 802.11ax clients. Adaptive QoS and WTFast support are in, which will let you push priority to your gaming to eliminate lag. Via Computer Alliance.
