We built a gaming PC out of Prime Day buys

If you're looking for this year's offers, here's where all the Amazon Prime Day 2019 PC deals live. If not, continue with this old article... 

Amazon Prime Day is growing into the Black Friday of the summer, with many other sites and businesses joining the fun. The result is better prices on many popular PC components, and for those that have been holding off on building a new rig, it's an excellent time to snap up some quality parts at a discount. We've built a complete gaming PC, including a mouse and keyboard, using our favorite Prime Day deals. We'll keep updating the picks throughout Prime Day with the latest deals.

That's nearly everything you need for your new high-end gaming PC build. The only thing missing is a display, and perhaps a desk and a chair as well. Most people already have those, but check out our Prime Day deals for additional picks in those areas. All told, we've assembled a PC for under $1,500. That's a lot of money, but normally a PC of this caliber would cost more than $2,000, and it wouldn't be any faster.
