Best Amazon Prime Day PC gaming deals

The summer's here, the temperature's rising, and we've got to hope that with Amazon Prime Day rolling around that prices are going to be dropping. That's obviously the big hope for a sales event, and for us we're desperate to see some really great Prime Day PC gaming deals popping up over the next few weeks.

I remain hopeful that gaming laptops will see some tangible discounts; given that last-gen machines will still have the same GPU components as the latest laptops, you could pick up a well-discounted two year-old notebook and know you're still in for great gaming frame rates. I'd like to think that monitors and SSDs, as well as a host of more affordable peripherals will see some great deals, too.

After all, it's not just Jeff's mob at Amazon that we're holding out for—all the other retailers will be similarly looking to create their own sales events side-by-side with the Prime Day deals, with some even going early.

But our standard advice remains, however. It's only ever a deal if you were looking at buying that gaming laptop, monitor, PC, or graphics card in the first place. So have an idea of the sort of thing you're looking to buy first, and that way you won't get your head turned as easily by seemingly hefty discounts on things you don't need, or even really want. 

We'll be carefully avoiding the terrible deals with fake sale prices designed to tempt people to spend on obsolete hardware; as ever we are making it our focus to only show you the kit you should really consider buying for your own PC gaming setup. 

When is Amazon Prime Day this year?

The full two-day Amazon's 2024 Prime Day event runs from Tuesday July 16 and through Wednesday July 17 this year. But it is worth noting that the good deals start a lot earlier than that, which is why we're already taking you through the best we've found. Retailers like Newegg and Best Buy, and some of the major PC builders like Alienware, HP and Lenovo will be kicking off their deals early and that means significant discounts on gaming laptops before the event, during, and probably for a little while after as well.

1. Corsair TC100 Relaxed | Fabric | $199.99 at Corsair (save $30)

1. Corsair TC100 Relaxed | Fabric | $199.99 at Corsair (save $30)
The TC100 Relaxed is our favorite affordable gaming chair right now, following up on the popular T3 Rush with a great look and genuine comfort. And on a personal note the fact it allows you to sit cross legged is a big plus for the TC100 and a big cross against most bucket seat style chairs.

While Nvidia's replacement for the RTX 4080 is only a little bit faster, the MSRP of the RTX 4080 Super is a fair bit lower at $999. We've found just one card at that sorta price today, however. That's this PNY, which should be a pretty cool and quiet card.

At $320 this LG ultrawide is a genuine bargain. By comparison, Alienware's fancy QD-OLED 34-inch panel is around $800 even on sale. This LG matches its size, resolution, aspect ratio and refresh rate for less than one third of the price, although of course it is a VA panel, not an OLED. It's also not the brightest gaming monitor ever, but it is a very good deal.

Solidigm is a brand name of SK Hynix, a company that directly makes memory chips for SSDs. Here you've got a drive that has fairly slow read/write speeds compared to others in our curated list, but they're still plenty fast enough.

5. Skytech Eclipse | Ryzen 7 7800X3D | RTX 4070 Ti | 32 GB DDR5-5600 | 1 TB SSD | $2,399.99 $1,799.99 at Newegg (save $600)

5. Skytech Eclipse | Ryzen 7 7800X3D | RTX 4070 Ti | 32 GB DDR5-5600 | 1 TB SSD | $2,399.99 $1,799.99 at Newegg (save $600)
The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is the best gaming CPU you can buy right now. One great CPU does not a great gaming rig make, however, so luckily here it comes with the super quick RTX 4070 Ti (original, not Super) and 32 GB of DDR5 5200. Drawbacks? Only 1 TB of storage, but at least its a Gen 4 drive. Otherwise, this is a pretty stonking gaming machine for the money.

6. ASRock Phantom PG27Q15R2A | 27-inch | 165Hz | 1440p | VA | FreeSync Premium |$239.99 $173.99 at Newegg (save $70)

6. ASRock Phantom PG27Q15R2A | 27-inch | 165Hz | 1440p | VA | FreeSync Premium | $239.99 $173.99 at Newegg (save $70)
ASRock's gaming monitors are always so darned cheap—we love them for that. This 1440p panel offers resolution and a rapid refresh rate for a potent PC gaming combo, though the built-in Wi-Fi antenna helps it stand out from the crowd. That's hardly essential, but could come in use for some.

The RX 7900 XT is one of the more recent releases out of AMD, at least in the global market. It started out as a special edition for the Chinese gaming market, but it was rolled out globally to help the red team compete with the green guys. It's a good deal, too, being big chunks of the RX 7900 XT but with a bit less of everything. Right now it's cheapest at Newegg, though you need to sign up for its free membership program to get the full discount.

8. Yeyian Yumi  | Core i5 12400F | Nvidia RTX 4060 | 16 GB DDR4-3200 | 1 TB SSD | $1,199.99 $799.99 at Newegg (save $400)
The Yumi is a bit of a classic when it comes to gaming PC deals, as it's always there or thereabouts. At the moment this is the cheapest RTX 4060-based PC we've found, and comes with a supporting spec that is absolutely solid, even if it's not the latest and greatest. The combo of Alder Lake Core i5 and DDR4 memory means you still get the capacity, and a healthy core count, but without the expense of the very latest hybrid Intel chips or pricier DDR5 memory. And gaming performance will vary very little.

9. Dell G15 | RTX 4060 | Ryzen 7 7840HS | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165 Hz | 16GB DDR5-4800 | 512GB SSD | $1,099.99 $849.99 at Dell

9. Dell G15 | RTX 4060 | Ryzen 7 7840HS | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165 Hz | 16GB DDR5-4800 | 512GB SSD | $1,099.99 $849.99 at Dell
Dell's angular chassis definitely feels like it's had some Alienware influence on it, but it is quite a bezel-happy thing. Still, you are getting a decent spec for a decent sub-$1,000 price. That includes an RTX 4060 that will certainly do a job with the 1080p display. But it's a slick 165 Hz panel, and you're getting a full 16GB of dual-channel DDR5 though only a 512GB SSD. Still, it's a lot of laptop for not a lot of money.

10. Acer Predator Helios 16 | RTX 4080 | Core i9 13900HX | 16-inch | 1600p | 240 Hz | 32GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | $2,299 $1,799 at B&H Photo (save $500)

10. Acer Predator Helios 16 | RTX 4080 | Core i9 13900HX | 16-inch | 1600p | 240 Hz | 32GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | $2,299 $1,799 at B&H Photo (save $500)
Acer's Helios 16 has proved one of our favorite 16-inch gaming laptops of the last generation, and this RTX 4080-powered device is a great price at around the $2,000 mark. Sadly, this isn't the mini-LED version we loved so well in our review, but it's still got a great IPS panel that is able to hit pretty high brightness levels and at a great refresh rate, too.

HP Victus | RTX 4060 | Core i5 12500H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144 Hz | 16GB DDR4 | 512GB SSD | $919.99 at Amazon

HP Victus | RTX 4060 | Core i5 12500H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144 Hz | 16GB DDR4 | 512GB SSD | $919.99 at Amazon
The Omen range is the name you'd expect from an HP gaming laptop, but the Victus brand is its more affordable  option and that means you're getting a pretty effective 1080p gaming machine for a little north of $900. It's not the hobbled RTX 4060 you might find in a cheap MSI laptop—you're getting a 75W TGP here, which will deliver great gaming frame rates on this 144Hz panel for the money. The SSD, as you generally find, is a bit meagre as we'd always hope for a 1TB drive in something this close to a grand, but it's still only a relatively simple upgrade away should you fill your system up.

Gigabyte G5 | RTX 4060 | Core i7 12650H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144 Hz | 16GB DDR4 | 1TB SSD | $969 at Amazon

Gigabyte G5 | RTX 4060 | Core i7 12650H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144 Hz | 16GB DDR4 | 1TB SSD | $969 at Amazon
The ol' Gigabyte G5 has been a classic when it comes to budget gaming laptops for a long while now, and just when you thought it had disappeared it's back with better specs and a still sub-$1,000 price tag. As we discovered when we reviewed the Core i5 version of the G5, it's a great little gaming laptop, and with the extra storage and slightly better CPU this is a quality machine for the money. If you're happy with just a 512GB SSD (or have a bigger one ready to drop in) you could save a little more cash and go for the 512GB $922 version.

It's maybe a wee bit of a chonky beast, but no more so than recent Dell gaming laptops, and it's here with enough of a saving to give me pause. You are getting a 105W RTX 4060, which isn't super fast, but you are getting a decent amount of storage and proper DDR5 memory, too.

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | Nvidia RTX 4060 | AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS | 14-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,599.99 $1,149.99 at Best Buy (save $450)

If you don't want a hulking gaming laptop, let me introduce the Zephyrus 14 (see our review): a 14-incher that can game without busting your bank balance or your shoulder when lugging it around—no-nonsense specs in a delightful package. This isn't the latest version with the sexy aluminum unibody chassis, but it has an RTX 40-series GPU inside. It's still a very smart package, though not the most affordable RTX 4060 machine by any stretch.

Gigabyte Aorus 15 | RTX 4070 | Core i7 13700H | 16-inch | 1440p | 160 Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | $1,299.99 $1,249.99 at Newegg (save $50)

Last year's Aorus 15 is still a very good mid-range gaming laptop. It's not as overtly gamer-aggressive in styling as previous Aorus machines, and yet it's still got all the gaming goods you would want from a 15-incher. The 165 Hz, 1440p panel comes with an impressively thin bezel and compliments the 140 W RTX 4070 that Gigabyte is packing inside it. The classic 16GB / 1TB memory/storage combo is plenty good enough to support the 14-core Core i7 chip at its heart, too.

Asus TUF A15 | RTX 4070 | Ryzen 9 7940HS | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144 Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | $1,699.99 $1,299.99 at Amazon (save $400)

Note the red-lit keyboard in the picture?👈 That's because this is Asus' AMD-based version of its affordable TUF range of gaming laptops. And that means you're getting both DDR5 memory and a genuinely impressive eight-core, 16-thread CPU. And if you want to save some battery you can switch to the 780M integrated graphics which is used in the best handheld gaming PCs. Obviously you'd rather use that mighty RTX 4070 GPU, though, which is going to scythe through 1080p games at excellent frame rates.

Asus TUF F15 | RTX 4070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15-inch | 144 Hz | 1080p | 16GB DDR4 | 1TB SSD | $1,399.99 $1,309.99 at Newegg (save $90)

Asus TUF F15 | RTX 4070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15-inch | 144 Hz | 1080p | 16GB DDR4 | 1TB SSD | $1,399.99 $1,309.99 at Newegg (save $90)
While not exactly a massive discount, this is still a good price for an RTX 4070-powered gaming laptop. The TUF F15 is one of Asus' more affordable machines, and as such it's certainly a little chunkier than something like the Zephyrus range, but you're still getting a 14-core processor and 16GB of DDR4 memory to support that Nvidia GPU. There's also a full 1TB of storage in there, so you're good to go out of the box without anything needing an upgrade.

It's not the prettiest gaming laptop you'll ever see but underneath the cheap-looking exterior is a pile of really nice hardware. That Intel CPU has 14 cores, 20 threads, and the GPU is a 140W RTX 4070. Backing them up are 16GB of DDR5 RAM and, unusually for this price, a full 1TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD. Even the 2560 x 1600 screen is good, with a 250 Hz refresh rate and mini-LED backlighting. There's very little to dislike here and it'll be down to whether the lightweight nature or 14-inch panel just aren't right for you.

This lovely 14-incher is pretty expensive for an RTX 4060 but it's still the best compact gaming laptop around. You get an excellent OLED panel as standard and a 65W GPU that will still deliver a quality gaming experience. The 512GB SSD is a bit small, but you can configure the machine with a 1TB drive if you're willing to spend a bit more. Shame the battery life isn't so good, but that's small gaming laptops for you.

Gigabyte Aorus 17H | RTX 4070 | Core i7 13700H | 17.3-inch | 1440p | 240 Hz | 16GB DDR5-4800 | 1TB SSD | $1,749 $1,549 at Amazon (save $200)

This is a big laptop that, for once, hasn't packed with the most power-hungry components. That Core i7 is easier to keep cool than an i9 and it's a more suitable match for the 140W RTX 4070 alongside. It is $200 more than the Asus TUF above but you're getting a much nicer display.

Acer Predator Helios 16 | RTX 4080 | Core i9 13900HX | 16-inch | 1600p | 240 Hz | 32GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | $2,299 $1,799 at B&H Photo (save $500)

$1,850 for a laptop with a 1080p screen? Ignore that for the moment and note that you're getting a decent CPU, a 150W RTX 4080, and a nice amount of storage. Then focus on the fact that the screen is enormous (for a laptop) and super-fast, and what you're looking at is something that's idle for e-sports and competitive shooter fans. Gigabyte's control app isn't the best, though.

Yes, this is the 2023 version, and yes, we are surrounded by RTX 4080-powered gaming laptops that are cheaper than this. But it's a Blade 14, and a mighty fine one, too. Even at launch I noted in my Blade 14 review that it was ludicrously expensive for an RTX 4070 laptop, and even now it's pretty pricey compared with those RTX 4080 laptops. But it's a glorious package, and you're paying for that stunning (if a little thicker) 14-inch chassis and super sharp 1600p 240 Hz display. If you just want a premium portable gaming machine this wee thing has the power and the design to almost make you happy to swallow even the discounted price.

Let's be honest, at this point, this isn't a deal on the best RTX 4080 laptop I've tested, this is just the price that it is. It's effectively been on offer at B&H at this level for a year now, but it's a fantastic notebook, offering performance that can often match and sometimes beat an RTX 4090-based system (see our review). There's a high-performance CPU to back it up, a decent, bright 1600p screen, and a fair amount of storage. All with a discount.

You can game on this machine to a certain extent—the integrated Vega GPU on the Ryzen chip will certainly support 720p gaming at lower settings. But we're listing it here as a good base from which to add your own graphics card for a quick new gaming PC on a tight budget. The AMD CPU is a good six-core, 12-thread job, and the 16 GB RAM will run everything you need.

If you don't want to get busy with a screwdriver, Ipason has another budget offering with a built-in upgrade over its $489 5600G-sporting PC, this time with an RX 7600 GPU at its heart. That offers sometimes better than RTX 4060 gaming performance, and the full system comes with a solid back-up spec, too. The Ryzen 5 5600 might not be the latest and greatest but its still very capable as a gaming CPU, and that 1 TB SSD gives you a decent amount of space for a few big games and all your files.

It's a last-gen Intel CPU but the 13400F is the best budget gaming processor you can get. It's an ideal match for the RTX 4060 Ti, and the rest of the specs are nicely balanced, too. Sure it would be nice to have DDR5 system memory, but 32 GB will ensure no game is going to be left wanting more. For the price, there's very little to complain about.

RTX 4070 machines can vary in price and specification quite significantly, but here you're getting that great 1440p GPU (with even some 4K credentials thanks to DLSS 3), a nice and speedy Core i5 paired with some good DDR5 RAM, and a 1 TB SSD. For close to a thousand bucks, that's a decent selection of hardware that makes it a great gaming rig for more like budget prices.

While the RTX 4060 Ti isn't the fastest GPU in the world, thanks to DLSS 3 it's still a decent shout for a 1080p/1440p modern gaming card. Here you also get a very fast previous gen Intel chip and 32 GB of DDR5 6000 memory, meaning that if you do upgrade that GPU the rest of the components should still be able to keep up with something beefier, too.

The Core i7 13700F is a beast of a gaming chip, with 8 P-cores, 8 E-cores and 24 threads anxious to tear into both games and productivity tasks, and here it's paired with 32 GB of very fast DDR5. Throw the RTX 4070 into the equation, and you've got yourself a very well-priced and plenty fast gaming machine.

The Ryzen 7700 is a speedy gaming chip, and the RTX 4070 Super is a decent upgrade over the standard RTX 4070. 16 GB of DDR5 and a 1 TB SSD is enough for the meantime, and both are easy enough to upgrade on the cheap later down the line. A very nice mid-range gaming PC, at a price that makes a lot of sense.

The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is the best gaming CPU you can buy right now. One great CPU does not a great gaming rig make, however, so luckily here it comes with the super quick RTX 4070 Ti (original, not Super) and 32 GB of DDR5 5200. Drawbacks? Only 1 TB of storage, but at least its a Gen 4 drive. Otherwise, this is a pretty stonking gaming machine for the money.
