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?
- Amazon - Black Friday deals on anything and everything
- Microsoft - Laptops, peripherals and games
- Dell - Alienware and Dell PCs, monitors and laptops
- MWave - Laptops, peripherals, monitors, hardware... the lot
- eBay - Laptops, monitors and peripherals
- Scorptec - PC specialists with a bit of everything
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.
Cyber Monday Gaming Laptop deals in Australia
Cyber Monday Gaming Monitor deals in Australia
Cyber Monday storage deals in Australia
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB NVMe SSD |
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.
Cyber Monday Gaming Chair deals in Australia
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 |
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 |
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 |
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 |
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 |
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 |
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 BlackShark V2 wired headset |
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.
Cyber Monday hardware deals in Australia
Gigabyte Z590 Aorus Ultra ATX motherboard |
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 9 5900X |
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 |
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.
