Black Friday 2020: the best PC gaming deals you can pick up today

Black Friday deals

Psst... looking for Cyber Monday deals? Hit that link to see our up-to-date list of the best discounts available now.

Black Friday is over, but the deals don't really end after Friday—we're maintaining an up-to-date list of Cyber Monday PC deals here. Below you'll find the Black Friday PC gaming deals we collected before the weekend, some of which are still in-stock and active. 

With everything heading online this year, more so than ever before, it means we're not having to jostle actual humans out of the way to bag that super cheap gaming laptop, or monstrous OLED TV for a bargain price. We can do all that from the comfort of our own homes.

Everyone's getting in on the act, so there are Black Friday deals from all corners of the internet, offering bargain prices on practically everything. Apart from graphics cards. Yeah. Sorry.

But mostly that means the retailers will all be trying to beat Amazon. But that is generally an exercise in futility as Jeff knows all, Jeff sees all, and will price match everyone into oblivion. He's probably plugged directly, meatily into a vast data center at the start of November, with neurons firing hither and thither, matching or beating the likes of Newegg, Walmart, and the rest in deals... until he's bodily removed by his minions at some point in January to recuperate in a Bacta tank until Prime Day 2021. Probably.

Black Friday top deals today

Alienware Aurora R11 | i7 10700KF | RTX 3080| $2,439.99 $2,391.19 at Dell (save $48)
A small discount on the Aurora R11, but it's currently our favorite pre-built gaming PC, and you can actually get one with an RTX 3080. Or an RTX 3070. In these scarce times, that's a win.View Deal

Acer Predator XB271HU | 27-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | $699.99 $499 at Amazon (save $200)
The XB271 is one of our favorite displays of all time, it uses the exact same panel as the Asus ROG PG279Q, which currently sits atop our best gaming monitors list. And with a $300 discount it's a great price for a high refresh 1440p panel. There's no HDR involved, but that's almost a moot point on PC these days.View Deal

Vizio UHD SmartCast TV | 55-inch | OLED | $1,299.99 $899 at Best Buy (save $400)
Vizio is a discount brand, but still, an OLED TV for $899 is exciting, as OLED panels are top-tier and usually cost well over a grand. This TV has also been designed with some gaming features.View Deal

This is the latest version of the controller that released with the Xbox Series X, with a redesigned D-pad and nice, grippy coating to the back, triggers, and bumpers. At this price, it's cheaper than the Xbox One version. View Deal

Samsung CRG9 | 49-inch | 120Hz | $1,499.99 $999.99 on Amazon (save $500)
This 49-inch beast is comparable with the megabuck Samsung Odyssey G9 by most metrics, including DisplayHDR 1000 capability. It's not quite as tightly curved or as fast at 4ms rather than 1ms. But with 120Hz refresh and 1000 nits of brightness, it's still an absolute beauty.View Deal

Samsung 980 Pro SSD| 500GB | PCIe 4.0 | $149.99 $119.99 at Amazon (20% off)
This Samsung drive is just faster than the rest, and that's down to its support of the PCIe 4.0 interface. If you have an AMD Ryzen 3000 or Ryzen 5000 CPU, and a compatible B550 or X570 motherboard, you can make the most of the Samsung's speeds, up to 6,900MB/s seq. read. That's over double the speed of even some the best PCIe 3.0 NVMe drives.View Deal

Samsung 970 EVO Plus | 1TB | PCIe 3.0 | $249.99 $149.99 at Amazon (save $100)
While we're still waiting for the newer PCIe 4.0 interface to become ubiquitous speedy PCIe 3.0 SSDs, such as this excellent Samsung 970 EVO Plus, are still absolutely worth your money. For under $150 this is a good price for a 1TB NVMe SSD, though you may find lesser-known brands hitting $120-odd around Black Friday.View Deal

SanDisk Extreme | 1TB | $249.99 $139.99 at Amazon (save $110)
External SSDs are becoming more and more important with the release of the next-gen consoles, but they're also vital for the professional PC crowd too. Having a rugged drive such as this SanDisk, with this level of performance, means working with large data sizes on the go is far easier.View Deal

SecretLab Omega | $419 $349 at SecretLab (save $70)
The best gaming chair around at a better price than usual—and we like it plenty at full price. The Omega offers firm back support (and a welcome set of memory foam lumbar and headrest pillows) and materials that feel high quality, something you don't see in all gaming chairs.View Deal

Asus ROG Strix GL10DH | RTX 2060 Super | Ryzen 7 | $1,449.99 $1,099.99 at Newegg (save $350)
This is a great saving on a big-brand PC that has a healthy core specification. The RTX 2060 Super is a great card for 1080p gaming and even manages some 1440p action in the right titles. It also lets you get in on the ray-tracing fun. The Ryzen 7 3700X is a great CPU, and with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, there's a lot of PC here for your money.

HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop | RX 5500 | Core i5 10400 | $869.99 $599.99 at HP (save $267 with coupon code)

VYBE RTX 3070 AMD Ryzen 5600X build | $1,899 $1,599 at Maingear (save $300)
It's proving to be especially difficult to find RTX 3070 cards and Ryzen 5600X CPUs at the moment, but this prebuilt gaming PC has both installed and ready to go. Saving $300 and not having to spend any time building sounds like a dream to me.View Deal

Alienware Aurora R10 | RTX 2080 Super | Ryzen 7 | $2,039.99 $1,649.99 at Dell (save $390)
The Aurora machines are our favorite pre-built gaming PCs right now, and this is a mighty discount on a mighty rig. Sure, the Ampere cards might have superseded the older Turing architecture, but there is still a whole lot of performance on offer. As well as 16GB RAM, a 1TB SSD, and a fantastic AMD processor.View Deal

Dell XPS Desktop SE | RTX 2070 Super | Intel i7 | $1,829.99 $1,399.99 at Dell (save $430)
The new Dell gaming PCs are pretty little things, with a bit of the Mac desktop aesthetic. That's no bad thing, especially when it comes packing an RTX 2070 Super, a 512GB SSD, and an 8-core, 16-thread Intel i7. One thing to note, however, is that it's only sporting a single 16GB stick of RAM, which will halve its bandwidth. Though you could always buy another stick...View Deal

Origin PC deals | Pick up to 3 free gifts on select systems
Origin hasn't yet listed any specific system deals, but it has launched its Black Friday bundles. The bonuses take the form of either a $50 VISA card, a 500GB Seagate SSD, a Corsair Void Pro wireless headset, a Corsair K55 and Harpoon keyboard/mouse setup, a Corsair Dark Core Pro mouse, or an Elgato Mini Dock.View Deal

HP Pavilion TP01-0145m | Radeon RTX 550 | Ryzen 3 | $549.99 $449.99 at Walmart
This unassuming box is a bit of an oddity for an office machine in that it pairs the Ryzen 3 3200G's integrated graphics with a Radeon RTX 550 graphics card. Beyond that, you get 8GB of RAM, a 128GB boot SSD for the bundled copy of Windows 10 Home, and a 1TB HDD. A decent work system that could play the odd game at a push.View Deal

NZXT PCs with RTX 30-series cards| 10% off any BLD PC

Black Friday Gaming Laptop deals


Dell G5 15 SE | AMD 4600H | RX 5600M | $929.99 $767.33 at (save $162.66)
We've made a lot of noise about the RTX 2060 machines for less than $1,000 being good value, but the RX 5600M delivers similar performance making it an outstanding gaming laptop. With a 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen CPU, 8GB of 3,200MHz RAM and a 256GB NVMe SSD, the overall package is pretty sweet too. Use code 'WEEKEND10' to get the full discount.View Deal

MSI Alpha 15 | AMD 4800H | RX 5600M | $1,399 $1,199 after rebate at Newegg
All AMD laptops are still a bit of a rarity even after great showings from its latest mobile hardware. The eight-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 4800H is one of the best laptop CPUs ever made, and the 6GB RX 5600M is an impressively powerful gaming GPU too. Paired with all that you get 16GB RAM, a 1TB NVMe SSD, and a 144Hz 15.6-inch IPS display.View Deal

Acer Predator Triton 300 | RTX 2070 | Intel i7| $1,699.99 $1,299.99 at Microsoft (save $400)
A good-looking gaming laptop with a strong configuration: 16GB RAM, a 1080p 144Hz IPS display, and a 1TB SSD. You'll be able to play any modern PC game on it. View Deal

Acer Nitro 5 | 15.6-inch | Core i5-9300H | RTX 2060 | 16GB RAM | 256GB SSD | $1,099 $799 at Walmart (save $300)
For under $1000, an RTX 2060 is a very decent GPU to have in a laptop. The SSD is small, though, so you'll want external storage for anything you're not immediately using.View Deal

Asus TUF Gaming | 15.6-inch| Core i5 |GTX 1650 Ti | $799.99 $599.99 at Best Buy (save $200)
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti is a respectable GPU in the entry-level section and a fine grab in a gaming laptop that only costs $599.99. It won't push 60+ fps in every single game out there, but it will in many cases, and way more often than not will present a playable experience at 1080p.View Deal

HP Pavilion | 15.6-inch | Ryzen 5 | GTX 1650 | $699.99 $449.99 at Best Buy (save $250)
You can't get a gaming laptop for under $500, they said. And if you do, it will have crummy integrated graphics, they said. Well, THEY were wrong. This HP Pavilion rocks a 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen CPU and a GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD. It's not going to win any sprints but can offer a nice pace in games like Doom Eternal and Apex Legends.View Deal

Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 | Intel i5 | RTX 2070 Max-Q | $1,579.99 $1,249.99 Best Buy (save $330)
Not many laptops serve up a 240Hz refresh rate, but this one does, which is powered by a Comet Lake CPU and a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU. It's a great option for esports, and with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD, any gamer can jump on this without regret.
View Deal

MSI GL75 | 17.3-Inch |Intel i7 | RTX 2070 | $1,499 $1,199 after rebate
This is a strong configuration from top to bottom for playing games at high framerates. With a 6-core, 12-thread Intel CPU, a powerful mobile Nvidia GPU, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD paired with a 1TB HDD, this is a lot of laptop. Discounted price requires code 4STUDENT (save $100) and cashing in the $100 mail-in-rebate.View Deal

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 | Intel i3 | $959 $599 at Best Buy
It's no gaming laptop, but the Pro 7 is a solid tablet with PC pretensions thanks to its connected keyboard and Intel Core i3 processor. The 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD capacity would be a bit miserly on a fully fledged laptop, but in this 12.3-inch tablet form it will absolutely do the job you need of it.View Deal

Black Friday Gaming Monitor deals

Samsung 24-inch FreeSync Monitor | 1080p | 75Hz | $149.99 $89.99 at Best Buy (save $60)
This 24-inch monitor carries a budget price tag, but wields an IPS screen, 75Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync support. Buyers who don't want to overspend on feature they may never use (like HDR and built-in speakers) should give this one strong consideration.
View Deal

Westinghouse UWQHD monitor | 34-inch | VA | 3440 x 1440 | $449.99 $329.99 at Newegg (save $120)
The more screen the better, especially when gaming. An ultrawide monitor like this one has its advantages, showing you more of the battle field at one time, its gentle curve wrapping around you so it's always in your peripheral vision. Feed it a fast framerate and hit its 1440p resolution, and you'll struggle to get a finer experience without hitting the price heights of 4K.View Deal

Samsung UJ590 | 32-inch | 4K VA | $369.99 $269.99 at Best Buy (save $100)
Proof that a quality 4K experience from a big brand needn't cost the earth. It may only be 60Hz and lack HDR support, but then driving this panel well beyond 60Hz is pretty implausible and many so-called HDR monitors are nothing of the sort.View Deal

Samsung CRG9 | 49-inch | 120Hz | $1,499.99 $999.99 on Amazon (save $500)
This 49-inch beast is comparable with the megabuck Samsung Odyssey G9 by most metrics, including DisplayHDR 1000 capability. It's not quite as tightly curved or as fast at 4ms rather than 1ms. But with 120Hz refresh and 1000 nits of brightness, it's still an absolute beauty.View Deal

Samsung CHG90 | 49-inch | 144Hz | $1,099.99 $749.99 on Amazon (save $350)
Another 49-inch beast, but slightly lower 3,840 by 1,080 resolution and without the retina-roasting HDR1000 capabilities. Still, it's a huge panel with 144Hz refresh support. What's more, the lower res will give you a better chance of actually hitting those buttery smooth refresh highs.View Deal

Dell Curved FreeSync Monitor | 32-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | $449.99 $329.99 at Best Buy (save $120)
This is one of the perennial deals of the year, with the 32-incher from Dell getting discounts over Prime Day and now Black Friday. It's a quality screen with 165Hz refresh rate, a 1440p resolution, and  a VA panel. It also supports AMD's FreeSync frame-smoothing tech for butter gaming. Mmm, buttery gaming...View Deal

HP 27f | 27-inch | 1080p | 75Hz | $249.99 $109.99 at Best Buy (save $140)
Some great savings here, on a quality panel. Not the highest refresh, but it comes with AMD FreeSync support. Already great value at full price, now with $140 savings, the super-slim 27F VGA  monitor is worth a look, if you just want to get some basic 1080p gaming underway—particularly for those packing an AMD GPU.View Deal

Acer Predator XB271HU | 27-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | $699.99 $499 at Amazon (save $200)
The XB271 is one of my favourite displays of all time, it uses the exact same panel as the Asus ROG PG279Q, which currently sits atop our best gaming monitors list. And with a $233 discount, it's a great price for a high refresh 1440p panel. There's no HDR involved, but that's almost a moot point on PC these days.View Deal

Black Friday TV deals

Best gaming TV

LG OLED65CXPUA | 65-inch | OLED | 4K | $2,499 $1,899 (save $600)
The best 4K TV for gaming at a healthy discount raring to test out your RTX 3070 or RX 6800 XT (when you eventually get one). The LG CX series is unmatched in terms of colour and contrast, this is as close as you can get to the perfect gaming panel.View Deal

Vizio UHD SmartCast TV | 55-inch | OLED | $1,299.99 $899 at Best Buy (save $400)
Want an OLED TV? Of course you do, and now Vizio has slashed the price of its 55-inch SmartCast screen there is now one that's more within reach than we've seen. With $400 off the list price this OLED TV has been designed with gaming in mind with its new ProGaming Engine. Sweet.View Deal

Vizio UHD SmartCast TV | 65-inch | OLED | $1,999.99 $1,499.99 at Best Buy (save $500)
This is arguably a better deal than the 55-inch above, given that you get a hefty $500 off the sticker price of the 65-inch version. It's still impressively thin, packs a great OLED panel, and like it's smaller sibling is still packing the same gaming-focused processing power under the hood.
View Deal

Sony X900H | 4K | 65-inch | $1,399.99 $999.99 at Best Buy (save $400)
Great savings here on this vast 65-inch, ultra-high resolution smart Android TV. We're anticipating a firmware update some time in "Winter 2020" for HDMI 2.1 compatibility, so maybe don't buy if you're looking to use a next-gen console on it straight away. Either way, with this kind of saving on a TV that does almost everything it sets out to, it's hard to ignore.View Deal

LG CX 55-Inch OLED TV | $1,699 $1,399.99 at Best Buy (save $300)
We found the 48-inch model to be the best TV for gaming, and this one is both bigger and cheaper right now. If you've been waiting to make the plunge into OLED territory, now is the time to jump.
View Deal

Sony Bravia A9G | OLED| 55-inch | $2,499.99 $1,899.99 at Best Buy
Unless you have a vast lounge a 55-inch 4K TV is the sweet spot for big-screen televisions, and OLED is the perfect panel technology for such a beast. It's also a great technology for gaming, delivering impeccable contrast and HDR. And with $600 off this Sony OLED it's below $2,000 right now.View Deal

TCL UHD Roku Smart TV | 65-inch | LED | $498 $428 at Walmart (save $70)
TCL TVs are a fantastic option if you're on a budget. I have an older version of this model and I love it. The build quality is great, and while it lacks the bells and whistles of more expensive options you really can't beat its picture quality at this price.View Deal

Black Friday NVMe SSD deals

Star SSD

Western Digital WD_Black SN750 | 1TB | PCIe 3.0 | $234.99 $115.99 at Best Buy (save $119)
This 1TB PCIe SSD will deliver high-end storage performance, with a serious gobbet of game storing capacity. It's not going to hit the heights of PCIe 4.0 drives, but you'll struggle to find a comparative option with the space on offer to this WD SSD.View Deal

Western Digital WD_Black SN750 | 500GB | PCIe 3.0 | $62.99 at Amazon
Western Digital came late to the SSD game, despite being a huge name in the hard drive market, but the SN750 appeared with its own controller and performance to match the might of Samsung's NVMe SSDs. It's still up there, and this 500GB version is a great little drive for this price.View Deal

Samsung 970 EVO SSD | 500GB | PCIe 3.0 | $99.99 $59.99 at Amazon (save $40)
You'd probably want a 1TB drive, but if you can't stretch that far a 500GB NVMe drive is still absolutely better than not having one. Especially when it's a speedy Samsung offering. This is a decent price for a half terabyte drive and it's not really that much slower than the slightly update EVO Plus version.View Deal

Samsung 970 EVO Plus | 500GB| PCIe 3.0 | $129.99 $79.99 at Amazon (save $50)
We may be getting near the point where we regularly recommend a 1TB NVMe SSD as the baseline for what you should be having as a boot drive in your gaming rig, but for right now, having a speedy 500GB 970 EVO Plus on your side will do just fine. That will make Windows feel zippy, as well as your most oft-played games.View Deal

Crucial P1 | 1TB | PCIe 3.0 | $104.99 $93.99 at Amazon (10% off)
Let's be clear, while it is an NVMe SSD, the Crucial P1 is not in the same league as a Samsung version, but that said it's still hugely quicker than any SATA drive any manufacturer can offer. And at under $100 it's a whole lot of speedy storage for not a whole lot of actual cash.View Deal

Crucial P5 | 1TB | PCIe 3.0 | $149.99 $119.99 at Amazon (20% off)
There's a lot to love about the cheaper P2 model above, but it can't hold a candle to the P5. This is Crucial's fastest consumer NVMe drive today with seq. read speeds of 3,400MB/s and seq. write of up to 3,000MB/s. That puts it right up there at the top-end of PCIe 3.0 drives today, and perfect for your operating system, applications, and games.View Deal

Samsung 970 EVO Plus | 1TB | PCIe 3.0 | $249.99 $149.99 at Amazon (save $100)
While we're still waiting for the newer PCIe 4.0 interface to become ubiquitous speedy PCIe 3.0 SSDs, such as this excellent Samsung 970 EVO Plus, are still absolutely worth your money. For under $150 this is a good price for a 1TB NVMe SSD, though you may find lesser-known brands hitting $120-odd around Black Friday.View Deal

Corsair MP400 | 1TB | PCIe 3.0 | $136.99 $114.99 at Newegg (save $22)
As a member of the QLC brigade this Corsair PCIe 3.0 drive can't quite muster the write performance of something like Samsung or WD's finest, but this is still decent value for 1TB of SSD storage with performance way ahead of an equivalent SATA drive.View Deal

Mushkin Enhanced Pilot-E | 2TB | PCIe 3.0 | $309.99 $209.99 at Newegg (save $100)
The price of NVMe drives is at a spectacularly low level right now, to the point where a seriously quick 2TB drive like this is only a shade over $200. That, together with its competitive read/write speed, makes this a rather desirable little slice of silicon to house your precious game data.View Deal

Black Friday SATA SSD deals

Samsung SSD 860 EVO | 500GB | $89.99 $53.99 at Amazon (save $36)
This 500GB version of the mighty Samsung 860 EVO will still deliver plenty of PC storage capacity for the discerning gamer, with performance ahead of anything your ol' spinner platter hard drive could dream of hitting. Though it is worth noting that you will find NVMe options for not a whole lot more if your system is compatible.
View Deal

Samsung SSD 860 EVO | 1TB | $199.99 $99.99 at Amazon (save $100)
If you are after some solid solid state storage options then the classic 860 EVO is one of the best SATA drives you can buy. Samsung is always reliable in the SSD world now, and at half price this 1TB SATA drive is outstanding value as either the base for your whole rig or just some speedy secondary Steam library storage.
View Deal

Black Friday External SSD deals

Crucial X8 | 1TB | $189.95 $129.95 at Amazon (save $60)
What's better than external storage? Superfast external storage, that's what. And it doesn't get much faster than this chunk of aluminum and silicon—we're talking transfer rates up to 1050MB/s here. It also happens to be rugged enough to take out into the big outdoors with you. View Deal

WD Black P50 Game Drive | 2TB | 2GB/s | $499.99 $299.99 at Amazon (save $200)
This is as good as external USB storage currently gets thanks to a 20Gbps interface, NVMe M.2 drive hidden behind a USB bridge and TLC rather than QLC NAND memory. Five-year warranty makes this a great long-term and high-speed game storage solution.View Deal

Samsung X5 | 2TB | Thunderbolt 3 | $699.99 $549.99 at Amazon (save $150)
Yeah, that is a lot of money to drop on some external SSD storage, but look, that's 2TB of NVMe-class data space. For any professional working on large data sets out in the field, who needs to transfer that stuff around, then spending big on a high-capacity SSD makes a lot of sense. And with $150 off the X5 is great on those counts.View Deal

SanDisk Extreme | 500GB | $149.99 $89.99 at Amazon (save $60)
The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is a rugged, reliable drive that is easy to recommend because it's a well-built quality external drive. It can generally be picked up for not much more than this anyway, but
at $95 it's still a good price for a versatile external drive.View Deal

SanDisk Extreme | 1TB | $249.99 $139.99 at Amazon (save $110)
External SSDs are becoming more and more important with the release of the next-gen consoles, but they're also vital for the professional PC crowd too. Having a rugged drive such as this SanDisk, with this level of performance, means working with large data sizes on the go is far easier.View Deal

Black Friday Gaming Chair deals

Best gaming chair

SecretLab Omega| $419 $349 at SecretLab (save $70)
Our favorite gaming chair is a good buy at its usual price, so this discount is the cherry on top. It has great build quality and firm back support, and we especially appreciate that it comes with nice memory foam pillows to rest our heads and lower backs against.View Deal

SecretLab Titan | $459 $389 at SecretLab (save $70)
The Titan is essentially the Omega, but built for the Titan PC gamer (aka if you're over 6ft tall or weigh more than 240 pounds). The same excellent build quality and finish applies here, too.

Black Friday Graphics Card deals

MSI RX 5500 XT | AMD Navi | 8GB | $204.99 $189.99 at Best Buy (save $15)
It's hard as all hell to find a new graphics card right now, with the old high-end GPUs running dry as the new ones came out only the lower end of the market has cards. The RX 5500 XT is a decent sub-$200 card right now, and a bit cheaper than its release MSRP. There are RX 570 cards on Amazon which cost more, a damning indictment of the market...

Armed with 8 cores, 16 threads, and up to a 5.1GHz boost clock, this Comet Lake processor is one of the best CPUs for gaming. It's also a better value proposition than the Ryzen 7 5800X, another 8-core/16-thread CPU, which it trades blows with in our testing.View Deal

Black Friday RAM deals

Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB | 3200MHz | CL16 | $98 $63.99 at Amazon (save $34)
Corsair, now known for its peripherals more than anything else, started out as a well-respected name in RAM. That's still absolutely true. This kit ticks everything you want from a good kit of memory—decent frequency, great latency, and thanks to this deal great value for money. You know it'll just work in any system too. Note there is no RGB bling to be had here. View Deal

G.Skill TridentZ RGB 16GB | 3200MHz | CL 16 | $84.99 $76.99 at Newegg (save $8)
This may not be a huge saving, but this is a good kit anyway, so don't be put off by the fact you're only saving $8. Rated at 3,200MHz with a CAS Latency of 16, this is exactly the kind of specifications you want for a speedy Intel build. It just so happens to look pretty sweet in any system as well, which gets the thumbs up from us. View Deal

If you're rocking an AMD system, or want to, then this 3600MHz kit is where it's at. The CAS Latency of 18 is standard at this speed, and while it would be nice to use a CL 16 kit instead, you generally have to pay a lot more for the privilege. Beyond that, this is a fairly standard, if incredibly vibrant, pair of sticks that will make any build stand out. View Deal

Other Black Friday deals

Amazon devices | Up to 60% off
Sales events like Black Friday are always when Amazon tries to cut down its stock of its Echo Dots, Kindles, Fire tablets—all that stuff. You'll find many of those products at their lowest prices this week.View Deal

Oculus Quest 2 | 256GB | $399 at Amazon
Okay, it's not actually a deal in the strictest sense, because this is the normal price, but it's still a steal for the best entry point into virtual reality there has ever been. The 256GB version is maybe overkill if you're going to spend most of your time plugging it into your PC for some quality Alyx time, but for that full, untethered experience the extra storage will allow you to keep a ton of games, TV shows, and movies all in the headset. And it still delivers one of the best VR experiences around.View Deal

iRobot Roomba 675| $279.99 $179.99 at Target

When is Black Friday 2020?

Black Friday itself falls on November 27, 2020, and effectively carries through the weekend into Cyber Monday on November 30, 2020. We expect the likes of Amazon will hold back certain key deals until this final weekend, but the whole of both November and December are typically well-stocked with deals.

This year in particular, with so much pressure on the delivery infrastructure, a lot of retailers are looking to spread things out, hence the early deals already on the books. If you want to guarantee your Christmas presents arrive before the holidays, then doing your shopping in November makes a lot of sense.

And that makes for a lot of shopping time.

What can I expect discounts on this Black Friday 2020?

We expect to find discounts on pretty much every facet of your PC this year. Traditionally, it's a great time to keep an eye out for gaming laptop deals, with companies keen to clear older, but still high-quality, stock before the end of the year and the release of new generations. 

There may also be some deals on the best gaming PCs for the same reason. A new generation of Nvidia Ampere and AMD RDNA 2 graphics cards, as well as AMD Zen 3 processors, are shipping out now, and that means last-gen machines might get their final hurrah.

It also means the best graphics cards of the existing GeForce and Radeon generations, which are mostly still available in the shops, could see some meaty discounts too. We would expect that AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs will be the key components to receive stellar deals throughout November.

The price of memory, and therefore the best SSDs, is in a bit of a freefall state right now, and that bodes well for some tasty deals this Black Friday. The gaming monitor market has been mildly stagnant over the last year, but traditionally you'll find Black Friday a good time to be looking for either a straight monitor or for a big-screen 4K TV for gaming.

The PC peripheral market too goes into overdrive around Black Friday, and so the likes of Logitech and Razer are bound to be slashing prices on their existing stock of gaming keyboards, gaming headsets, and the not-so humble gaming mouse. You can also get a new Xbox controller for $40 right now

What should I avoid buying on Black Friday 2020?

Anything you don't need. It's distressingly easy to be duped into dropping cash on something just because there's a hefty discount attached to it… even though you have absolutely no use for it. 

If you're considering making a purchase around Black Friday, have a plan of attack. That probably sounds needlessly aggressive, but you need to know what you actually want to buy first or you'll end up with no end of crap. Cheap crap, maybe, but crap nonetheless. 

Do some research on the products you'd like to pick up in the sales (we offer detailed hardware buying guides), and maybe some alternatives in case those don't pop up, and set yourself a strict budget too. 

Products like graphics cards and processors have obvious tiers (though the different companies work damned hard to make product names as confusing as possible), and SSDs have rated speeds, but for peripherals it's tougher to tell from the specs whether they're worth the money. Checking for reviews, from such luminaries as ourselves, should guide you on your way, and checking price trackers such as CamelCamelCamel will let you know if a deal's more than just skin deep.

Any other Black Friday 2020 tips and tricks?

If you haven't already used it up during a credit card splurge around Amazon Prime Day, then you ought to take the opportunity to sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. That will get you early access to the Lightning Deals, and help you grab some of Jeff's best deals of the day. It will also net you free shipping on a host of products and speedy delivery too, and at the very worst it'll be handy when it comes to bagging some last-minute Christmas gifts for that aunt you always forget about.

It also might be worth keeping an eye out for Walmart Plus, or Walmart+, depending on how it eventually gets branded. At the moment Walmart's upcoming service is still behind closed doors, but it could be launched in time for Black Friday and may see some of the company's best offers reserved for its release.

But whatever happens around Black Friday 2020, we'll be on hand throughout November to make sure that you're told about the best PC gaming deals going down around the event, and hopefully put a stop to any potential buyer's remorse. 

Dave has been obsessed with gaming since the days of Zaxxon on the Colecovision, and code books for the Commodore Vic 20 (Death Race 2000!). He built his first gaming PC at the tender age of 16, and finally finished bug-fixing the Cyrix-based system around a year later. When he dropped it out of the window. Thankfully it's a lot easier to build a gaming rig now there are no motherboard jumper switches, though he has been breaking technology ever since… at least he gets paid for it now.
