Best Amazon Prime Day PC gaming deals

The summer's here, the temperature's rising and Amazon's Prime Day sales bonanza starts tomorrow, with discounts hopefully to delight in. 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 coming days.

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.

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.

Other retailers are likely to take advantage of Amazon's own sale to get their own summer sales events kickstarted.

Amazon Prime Day top deals

1. HP Victus 16 | RTX 4070 | Core i7 13700H | 16-inch | 1080p | 144 Hz | 16 GB DDR5-5200 | 1 TB SSD | $1,199 at Walmart

1. HP Victus 16 | RTX 4070 | Core i7 13700H | 16-inch | 1080p | 144 Hz | 16 GB DDR5-5200 | 1 TB SSD | $1,199 at Walmart
The Victus range isn't the HP brand that comes to mind when you think gaming laptop, but it's the affordable side of the business which is still able to pack a decent punch for the price. This RTX 4070-powered machine is the cheapest we've found toting Nvidia's third-tier mobile GPU, but it is a 120 W version, not the full 140 W monty. That will still deliver at the 1080p res of this screen and will work comfortably under this relatively slim 16-inch chassis. The rest of the spec—16 GB DDR5 and 1 TB SSD—are exactly what you'd hope for at this end of the market, too. A really good price for a seriously solid machine.

2. Yeyian Yumi  | Core i5 12400F | Nvidia RTX 4060 | 16 GB DDR4-3200 | 1 TB SSD |$1,199$799 at Newegg (save $400)

2. Yeyian Yumi  | Core i5 12400F | Nvidia RTX 4060 | 16 GB DDR4-3200 | 1 TB SSD | $1,199 $799 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.

3. Nextorage G-LE | 2TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 7,400 MB/s read | 6,400 MB/s write | $249.99 $125.99 at Newegg (save $125)

3. Nextorage G-LE | 2TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 7,400 MB/s read | 6,400 MB/s write | $249.99 $125.99 at Newegg (save $125)
This DRAM-less Nextorage drive still has plenty of pace about it, and if you're just using it as an extra game library SSD to contend with your expanding library, but still need some storage speed, it's a great option. The extra cache can come in handy as a boot drive, increasing responsiveness for smaller write operations, but for games this more affordable option can be a good way to save some cash on a new build or upgrade.

4. HP Victus 15 | RTX 4050 | Ryzen 5 8645HS | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144 Hz | 8 GB DDR5 | 512 GB SSD | $979 $599 at Walmart (save $380)

4. HP Victus 15 | RTX 4050 | Ryzen 5 8645HS | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144 Hz | 8 GB DDR5 | 512 GB SSD | $979 $599 at Walmart (save $380)
Let's be upfront about this, nobody wants a laptop with just 8 GB of RAM in 2024. But when you're talking about a gaming notebook that costs just $600, but with a decent RTX 40-series GPU inside it, I can swallow it. Especially when you can easily upgrade the RAM with just a wee screwdriver in-hand. And 16 GB of fast dual-channel DDR5 is just $50-odd right now. The RTX 4050 is just a 75 W variant, so not the outright fastest, but will still definitely do a job at 1080p, and for this money, that's all you can ask.

5. Steam Deck (LCD) | 512GB SSD | $449 $381.65 at Steam (save $67.35)
Okay, the Steam Deck may have had an OLED refresh but the original version is still the archetype of what a mobile PC gaming device should be. It's just as powerful as the most recent model so all those Steam Deck compatible games should run well. Until July 11 Valve is selling off its 64 GB and 512 GB models while stocks last, which puts the original top of the line model, with its etched glass anti-glare screen, at less than the price of the 256 GB LCD version. It's the OG PC gaming handheld, and it demands respect.

6. Lexar NM790| 1 TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 7,400 MB/s read | 6,500 MB/s write | $79.99 $69.48 at Amazon (save $10.51)

For anyone looking for a cheap, spacious drive with serious performance, here you're getting a genuinely brilliant SSD for the money, and you can see this for yourself with our review of the 4 TB version.

7. ABS Kaze Aqua | Core i7 14700KF | Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti Super | 32GB DDR5-6000 | 1TB SSD | $2,299.99 $1,899.99 at Newegg (save $400)

7. ABS Kaze Aqua | Core i7 14700KF | Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti Super | 32GB DDR5-6000 | 1TB SSD | $2,299.99 $1,899.99 at Newegg (save $400)
The RTX 4070 Ti Super is a very powerful GPU, especially when you match it up with a Core i7 14700KF and 32 GB of DDR5-6000 RAM. That makes for a machine with serious grunt, and something that'll power through demanding games with relative ease. Shame about only 1TB of storage, but cheap SSD deals can still be found to buy you a bit more breathing room.

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

8. 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.

9. Secretlab Titan Evo | 'Signatures' designs | Magnetic cushions | $549 $519 at Secretlab (save $30)
The Titan Evo is our favorite gaming chair, and has been for the longest time. It's the benchmark by which we judge all other gaming chairs—it's comfortable, supportive, and easy to assemble. The holy trinity. Buying direct from Secretlab is the only way to pick up this chair at this price right now.

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.

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.

Price check: Newegg $979.99

Dell G15 | RTX 4060 | Ryzen 7 7840HS | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165 Hz | 16 GB DDR5-4800 | 512 GB SSD | $999.97 $949.99 at Amazon (save $49.98)

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, the mighty AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS CPU, though only a  512 GB SSD. Still, this is a lot of laptop for not a huge chunk of cash.

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.

Price check: Newegg $1,124.99

If you don't want a hulking gaming laptop, let me introduce the glorious 2024 version of the Zephyrus 14 (see our review): the best 14-incher and one that can game without busting your bank balance or your shoulder when lugging it around—no-nonsense specs in a delightful package. This is the latest version with the sexy aluminum unibody chassis. It's a very smart package, though obviously 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 | $1,399.99 $1,249.99 at Newegg (save $150)

Gigabyte Aorus 15 | RTX 4070 | Core i7 13700H | 16-inch | 1440p | 160 Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | $1,399.99 $1,249.99 at Newegg (save $150)
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.

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.

Gigabyte Aorus 17H | RTX 4080 | Core i7 13700H | 17.3-inch | 1080p | 360 Hz | 16GB DDR5-4800 | 1TB SSD | $1,849 $1,799.99 at Newegg (save $49.01)

$1,800 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.

Alienware m16 | RTX 4080 | Ryzen 9 7845HX | 16-inch | 1600p | 240 Hz | 32 GB DDR5-5200 | 1 TB SSD | $2,699.99 $1,899.99 at Best Buy (save $800)

My single issue with this machine is the fact that it's such a premium build in every single facet apart from the storage. It's a shame that you just get a 1 TB SSD when you're getting so much else in the package, but the 2 TB version is a silly price. The 32 GB of decent DDR5 here is great to have, the RTX 4080 is a bit of a gaming beast at 1600p, and the 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen 9 CPU is one of the best AMD's ever produced. My only other issue is that I can't tell whether this is the version with a mechanical keyboard or not... I would guess not at this price. A modern Intel-based version with essentially the same spec is some $2,600 at Dell right now.

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.

The AMD core at its heart is great, too, with eight Zen 4 cores and the finest Radeon iGPU we'll see until Strix Point finally launches. Use promo code PCGGA715 to get the full discount.

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 combination of DDR4 RAM and a previous gen Ryzen 5 might not be top-end, but this machine will still deliver great performance for under a grand.

If you don't want to get busy with a screwdriver, Ipason has a 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 it's 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 really great selection of hardware that makes it a great gaming rig for more like budget prices.

Yeyian has a stellar deal on an RTX 4070 Super machine here. That's the cheapest we've seen a PC with this card go for in, well, in as far as I can remember. Maybe ever. It does make a bit of an odd combo with the Core i5 here, though for straightforward gaming performance it shouldn't prove any issue and deliver high frame rates.

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.

Like the gaming PC above, but want a CPU with more and more RAM for productivity and content creation? Well for $150 extra cash you can have exactly that with this Yeyian model. Unlike the Ryzen chip, you won't be able to overclock this Intel one, but it'll be fast enough for most PC gamer's needs.

The RTX 4070 Ti Super is a very powerful GPU, especially when you match it up with a Core i7 14700KF and 32 GB of DDR5-6000 RAM. That makes for a machine with serious grunt, and something that'll power through demanding games with relative ease. Shame about only 1TB of storage, but cheap SSD deals can still be found to buy you a bit more breathing room.

It's been a little while since we've seen an RTX 4080 Super-equipped machine at $2,000, but this system strikes as a very well-balanced and powerful set of components. The 7700X is a very speedy gaming CPU, and combined with 32 GB of fast DDR5 and that beastly GPU this PC should fly through even the most demanding of games. As is often the case, however, you'll probably want to add in some sizeable storage when you get the chance.

The case might look a bit old-school from the front but it's what's inside that matters. Fortunately, it's all good, with a fast 20 core, 28 thread CPU, AMD's best gaming GPU with 24 GB of VRAM, plenty of fast DDR5 RAM, and a decent-sized SSD (though, you'll soon want to stick a larger drive in). The motherboard supports overclocking and all of the cooling stuff is Cooler Master's own gear, so you'll know it will be up to the job.

When the price of an RTX 4090 bought on its own these days is getting on for the same price as this entire rig, it's maybe worth taking a look at these high-end PCs as a value proposition after all. Coupled with the latest and greatest Intel CPU, 32GB of fast DDR5, and a healthy dollop (technical term) of SSD storage, this is a huge amount of gaming PC at a very good price.
