Best Black Friday PC gaming deals 2023: the best discounts still available

Black Friday deals

Black Friday is over, long live Cyber Monday. The best deals on PC gaming hardware are now live over in our Cyber Monday PC gaming deals page, though we've given this Black Friday page one last update just to be sure. Don't worry, there are still plenty of worthwhile sales on top products we love.

Budget-conscious PC gamers can do themselves a favor by waiting for Black Friday and Cyber Monday PC gaming deals before grabbing a new SSD, replacing their mouse, or buying anything big, like a laptop or complete set of new PC components. This is the time of year when prices are at their lowest for all manner of component or peripheral.

The first rule of this list: no junk. We spend our weeks testing the latest products to see if they're worthy of our PC gaming setups, and we're putting all that knowledge to work during this Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales season to recommend the best stuff you can buy. If we don't think it's any good, we're not going to recommend it just because it's on sale.

The second rule: real deals only. It can be hard to sort out the deals from the "deals" during these big sale events, so we're checking price histories and selecting only genuinely decent—or exceptional, when we find them—discounts on PC gaming stuff. 

Our goal: Save you from having to trawl though pages of bad products and not-actually-deals on Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg yourself.

If you do want to directly browse the stores with the biggest sales on PC gaming gear right now, check out the quick links below. Otherwise, keep scrolling for our top recommendations, or use the navigation links to jump to a category.

Think of the RTX 4070 as an RTX 3080 with benefits and you'll start to see that this is a great price for a new gaming PC, that probably would have been closer to $2,000 this time last year. Thankfully it's not, and this is a great low-price, high-performance gaming PC. The only thing that might cause you pause is that you won't be doing any CPU overclocking, as the option is locked. But for a resolutely gaming machine, it's still packs plenty of punch.

This is a great discount on the best RTX 4080 laptop I've tested and is even cheaper than it was over Prime Day. It's a fantastic notebook, offering performance that can often match and sometimes beat an RTX 4090-based system (<a href="https://www.pcgamer.com/lenovo-legion-pro-7i-gaming-laptop-review/" data-link-merchant="pcgamer.com"" data-link-merchant="bhphotovideo.com"" target="_blank">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.

This is a straightforward card from Zotac, with a minor clock boost over the reference spec, but comes with a really neat looking cooler. The same design works well on the beefier chips, so I'm not concerned about how effective it'll be with an RTX 4070 Ti. It's only a minor saving over the base $799 reference price, but is still a great alternative if you couldn't pick up a Founders Edition card.

This is the most affordable RTX 4070 Ti gaming PC we've found this Black Friday week, and it comes with a really solid, if last-gen, backup spec. The Core i5 12600K was our favourite 12th Gen gaming PC, and it will still deliver the goods today. The DDR4 memory spec is the only bit that is a little bit of a concern, but it has very little bearing on gaming performance, and a DDR4 memory upgrade would be relatively inexpensive down the line if you did feel it was holding you back. 

5. Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQA1A | 27-inch | 1440p | VA | $169.99 at Newegg (save $80)

5. Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQA1A | 27-inch | 1440p | VA | <a href="https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=kXQk6%2AivFEQ&mid=44583&u1=hawk-custom-tracking&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newegg.com%2Fp%2FN82E16824281243" data-link-merchant="newegg.com"" target="_blank">$169.99 at Newegg (save $80)
For the budget-conscious gamer, Asus makes a mean gaming monitor. This screen may be on the cheaper side, even costing less than some 1080p panels, yet it delivers 1440p res gaming with a 170Hz refresh rate (overclocked). Not too shabby.

This is the most affordable RTX 4080-based gaming laptop I've found, possibly at any time this year. It's not some hobbled GPU implementation either, using a 175W design of the graphics card to give you the full gaming performance. It's certainly not the most beautiful laptop you will see, nor the slimmest (though that helps keep it cool), and I'd rather a higher refresh rate panel and a bit more RAM, but it's a great price for an otherwise high-spec gaming machine.

7. Steam Deck (original) | 64GB SSD | <a href="https://store.steampowered.com/steamdeck" data-link-merchant="store.steampowered.com"" target="_blank">$349 at Steam
The Steam Deck may have had an OLED refresh but the original version is still pretty much the archetype of what a handheld 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, and while the 64GB storage is rather small, SSD upgrades like the <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=8432&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2FSABRENT-Rocket-512GB-Performance-SB-2130-512%2Fdp%2FB0BQG6FM45%3Fth%3D1%26tag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" data-link-merchant="store.steampowered.com"" target="_blank">Sabrent 2230 512GB are at a great price for a straightforward upgrade. It's the OG PC gaming handheld, and it demands respect.

You can score an RTX 4070 Ti for less than this, though usually with an older CPU than this. This Alienware delivers a rather modern package, with a Raptor Lake processor (13th Gen, not 14th Gen, but that's fine), a big enough boot drive at 1TB, and a 1000W PSU. It's also liquid cooled and comes with two sticks of DDR5 memory.

Alienware's fancy QD-OLED panel just got that little bit cheaper. It's still not exactly entry-level at $800, but think of it as a long term investment that will make every single gaming session pop. Once you've experienced per-pixel OLED-style lighting, you won't want to go back to LCD tech.

The XS70 was going cheaper last month, but we've seen it pop back up in price recently. I'd perhaps wait a bit longer to see if the price dips again before picking one up. It packs rather a large bang for your buck with its fast read and write times, at least. While the software side of things may be a little lacking, we were impressed with the overall performance and value proposition of this drive. <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=8432&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2FSilicon-Power-2TB-XS70-SP02KGBP44XS7005%2Fdp%2FB09T2WNKNZ%2F%3Fth%3D1%26tag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" target="_blank">Read our review here.

This is the best-value RTX 4060 gaming PC we've found this Cyber Monday season, in fact it's the best we've found all year. And it's from MSI. Go figure. Not normally known for its budget systems, this Aegis R has got a lot of PC inside it. For a start you'd normally be looking at DDR4 memory at this price, but the MSI has gone for the most latest RAM technology and paired it with a 1TB SSD. That Core i5 CPU is still a good gaming chip, and will happily keep an RTX 4060 fed with data.

If you don't want to get busy with a screwdriver, Ipason has another budget offering, 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.

Thankfully it's not, and this is a great low-price, high-performance gaming PC. The only thing that might cause you pause is that you won't be doing any CPU overclocking, as the option is locked.

This PC is on the cheaper side for an RTX 4070 build, especially considering it also comes with a decent Core i7 CPU.

This on-sale model does differ a little from the one we reviewed, however, in that it only comes with a 512GB SSD. That's pretty useless in 2023 and you'll need to buy a bigger capacity drive and add it in yourself almost immediately to properly gaming. Just note this deal is based on an 'estimated value' which is a bit high. Still a solid deal nonetheless.

This is the most affordable RTX 4070 Ti gaming PC we've found this Black Friday week, and it comes with a really solid, if last-gen, backup spec. The Core i5 12600K was our favourite 12th Gen gaming PC, and it will still deliver the goods today. The DDR4 memory spec is the only bit that is a little bit of a concern, but it has very little bearing on gaming performance, and a DDR4 memory upgrade would be relatively inexpensive down the line if you did feel it was holding you back.
