Each week, we trawl through the deepest, darkest corners of the world wide web in order to unearth some of the best PC gaming deals in Australia. This story will largely focus on highlighting PC hardware and peripherals discounts, but if there are any appealing AU-exclusive games bargains, we'll include them too.
Without further ado, here's our current selection of deals — as always, if you spot anything else good, let us know in the comments section below. This round-up will be updated weekly... or just whenever there's an especially good bargain to be had. As bargains expire, we'll remove them from the page.
For a wide range of deals, as well as live price comparisons, check out our sister site Getprice.
MWave is currently giving away Steam vouchers of us to AU$100 value for select ASUS gear. A few relevant products include:
ASUS ROG Strix Fusion Wireless Gaming Headset - AU$249
ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER - AU$1,249
Battlefield 5 - AU$19
If you're keen to get involved in Battlefield 5, now's a decent time: the game's content complete and its follow up isn't expected until next year some time. Via Amazon.View Deal
Alienware m15 | i7-9750H | RTX 2070 | 8GB RAM | 256GB SSD - AU$2,771 (usually AU$3,299)
A nice price cut on this decently specc'ed gaming laptop. If you want 16GB it's an extra AU$150, which frankly, you'll probably want to spend in 2020. Via Dell.View Deal
Alienware M15 R1 | i7-9750H | RTX 2070 | 16GB RAM | 256GB SSD - AU$3,023 (usually AU$3,599)
A decent saving of over AU$500 on this well-endowed gaming laptop, which features a 15 inch, 1080p 144Hz screen. Via Dell.View Deal
Dell 32 Curved Gaming Monitor | AU$799 (usually AU$999)
Here's a 32 inch QHD gaming monitor, with 165Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync 2 support. Oh, and it's got a big 'ol curve in it. Via Dell.View Deal
Alienware 27 Gaming Monitor | AU$799 (usually AU$999)
A 27 inch IPS monitor might not be worth AU$800 considering the Dell listed above: this one boasts a 240Hz refresh rate, though. Via Dell.View Deal
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB RAM (2x8GB) - AU$132.49
A modest saving on this pack of two 8GB RAM cards, usually goes for between AU$140-150. Via Amazon.View Deal
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X | AU$2,249 (usually AU$2,419)
Yes, it's still prohibitively expensive unless you've got cash to burn, but this is the best price going at the moment for the 24-core / 48-thread beast.
SanDisk SSD Plus 480GB Internal | AU$115 (usually AU$137.93)
This is a pretty marginal saving when compared to other outlets (for example, MWave has it for AU$125) but it's probably worth it if you've got Amazon Prime. Via Amazon.View Deal
Razer Nari Essential Wireless headset - AU$135.20 (usually AU$169.95)
A nice AU$35 off this highly regarded set of cans, which boasts THX spatial audio and a reported 16 hour battery life. Via Amazon.View Deal
Roccat Kone Pure - AU$45 (usually circa AU$70)
If you're after a feather light gaming mouse with, yes, some nice blingy colour options, this is a decent discount: it usually sells at around AU$65-$70. Via Amazon.View Deal
