Best Black Friday PC gaming deals 2022: only the best deals worth your money

Black Friday deals

These are all the Black Friday deals still live going into the weekend, but we're now switching focus to what's coming up with the Cyber Monday PC gaming deals (opens in new tab) and that's where all the latest and greatest discounts will now be curated.

Whether you're looking for a loved one or to treat yourself, you don't want to waste your money on a trash product or an awful 'deal'. That's why we'll be heavily curating the deals on this page to make sure you can see where your hard-earned money should go.

Here at PC Gamer we spend our working week testing the latest products to see if they're worthy of our rigs. And the ones we think worthwhile, we tell you about. That's why we do it: you shouldn't have to waste a penny on poorly-made products. 

And, at a time with an increased focus on the cost of living across the world, it makes sense to save any large purchase for an event such as Black Friday, where every retailer in every corner of the globe will be cutting prices to tempt you into spending your money with them. Whether you're desperate for an air fryer, want to upgrade your PC setup, or go all-in on a whole new machine, the Black Friday sales event is a great time to bag a bargain.

There are simply too many deals on the internet nowadays to sift through them yourself, that's our job. But don't worry, we're not going to start peddling air fryers, or mattresses, or anything that doesn't have anything to do with PC gaming. That's what we know, and we're making sure to channel our years of expertise into making sure you know what the best deals are and don't have to go trawling though pages of not-actually-deals on Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg or elsewhere.

Where are the best Black Friday PC gaming deals?

Today's top Black Friday deals

Acer Nitro 5 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $798 (opens in new tab)

Acer Nitro 5 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $798 $649 at Walmart (save $149) (opens in new tab)
Think this might just be the cheapest RTX 3060-based gaming laptop we've found this Black Friday. For this much cash you're usually looking at a GTX 1650 Ti based machine, at best. But here, you get a genuine 1080p gaming GPU, and a quality AMD Ryzen CPU, too. The 8GB of RAM is a bit weak for productivity, but the 144Hz screen and 512GB SSD go some way to make up for that slight shortfall.

Oculus Quest 2 128GB (opens in new tab)

Meta Quest 2 | Two controllers | Beat Saber + Resident Evil 4 included | 128GB storage | $399.99 $349.99 at Amazon (save $50) (opens in new tab)
We don't love the Meta Quest 2's $100 price bump, but we do love the headset itself. It's an all-round excellent device that works both standalone and as a great PC VR unit. With the two included games it's almost like the price hike never happened, right? Well, only if you wanted Beat Saber and Resi 4 in the first place.

Gigabyte Aorus 5 SE4 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,299.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte Aorus 5 SE4 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,299.99 $1,149.99 at Newegg (save $150) (opens in new tab)
A new 12th Gen Intel CPU combined with a powerful 130W RTX 3070 for $1,150 is a solid offering. That's especially true since this one's paired with a fantastically speedy 360Hz panel. There's plenty of RAM for your games and the chassis is attractive too.

Acer Nitro XZ342CK | 34-inch | 3440 x 1440 | VA | 144Hz | $449.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer Nitro XZ342CK | 34-inch | 3440 x 1440 | VA | 144Hz | $449.99 $349.99 at Amazon (save $100) (opens in new tab)
4K gaming monitors aren't necessarily super expensive anymore, but the GPUs that will really allow you to game in 4K at acceptable frame rates still are. For our money, if you want something more expansive than a 1440p panel you need an ultrawide. This VA panel from Acer has the ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio and a high refresh rate to boot. It's also never been cheaper than today.

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | AMD RX 6800S | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS | 14-inch | 1600p | 120Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,899.99 (opens in new tab)

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | AMD RX 6800S | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS | 14-inch | 1600p | 120Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,899.99 $1,399.99 at Best Buy (save $500) (opens in new tab)
Ah man, I am sorely tempted, because the G14 is one of the loveliest gaming laptops around. And that's from someone hopelessly in love with the Razer Blade 14. The combination of top-end Ryzen mobile CPU and performance Radeon GPU is impressive. That RX 6800S is only a shade behind the RTX 3070 in notebook form, and the rest of the spec rocks, too, especially that 120Hz 2560 x 1600 resolution screen. And it's the Moonlight White version as well. Mmmm.

MSI Mech RX 6750 XT | 12GB | 2,560 shaders | 2,618MHz | $549.99 (opens in new tab)

MSI Mech RX 6750 XT | 12GB | 2,560 shaders | 2,618MHz | $549.99 $369.99 at Newegg (save $180 after rebate) (opens in new tab)
We wouldn't normally be recommending the RX 6750 XT, after all it was the only RX 6x50 card that didn't make a lick of sense. It was only a slightly faster version of the RX 6700 XT but for a chunk more cash. This one, however, is a slightly faster version for a chunk less cash. And if you want a frame of reference from the last gen, it performs at a similar level to the RTX 2080 Ti. A former $1,200 GPU.

HP Pavilion | AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT | AMD Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD | $1,239.99 (opens in new tab)

HP Pavilion | AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT | AMD Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD | $1,239.99 $799.99 at Amazon (save $440) (opens in new tab)
A pretty darn relevant CPU/GPU combo here, considering the price. The Ryzen 7 has some nifty integrated graphics, too, though you won't need them with that GPU. Sadly, it doesn't support PCIe 4.0 meaning your SSD speeds are limited, but you're on DDR4 RAM at least. It's still got some upgrade potential, thanks to AMD's AM4 socket.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Gaming 5i | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $899.99 (opens in new tab)

Lenovo IdeaCentre Gaming 5i | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $899.99 $849.99 at Best Buy (save $50) (opens in new tab)
This is another OEM-style PC, which means it sacrifices the gamer aesthetic and some of the case standards we've become accustomed to. It's not so bad, however, as the actual specifications on this machine, for $849, are enough to win some favour. A really solid spec for 1080p gaming, it's the Intel Core i7 12700 that will make a huge difference if you hope to use this machine for streaming or video editing, too. 

MSI Trident 3 (opens in new tab)

iBUYPOWER TraceMR | Nvidia RTX 3080 | Intel Core i7 12700KF | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $1,849.99 $1,499.99 at BestBuy (save $350) (opens in new tab)
It wasn't long ago that an RTX 3080 alone would have cost you more than this entire PC. Now you can have the whole thing complete with a punchy Intel Core i7-12700KF processor, 16GB and a decent 1TB NVMe SSD. The motherboard is a proper Z690 item and they're even throwing in an RGB keyboard and mouse. It's a very nice package for the money.

Discord Nitro | 1 month | $9.99 (opens in new tab)

Discord Nitro | 1 month | $9.99 Free with 1-month purchase (opens in new tab)
With expanded emoji options, better streaming, and other minor benefits, Discord's premium subscription used to be a hard sell for anything other than the app's most hardcore users. After the recent addition of in-app games with the new Activities button, you might want to give it a real shot.

It's a stretch to call this one a gaming PC, if I'm being totally honest, but hear me out. There are some great Black Friday graphics card deals (opens in new tab) out there already, and the rest of this rig is a great platform to build a gaming machine. All you need is a GPU. Pick an RX 6650 XT on offer (opens in new tab) and you'll have a full rig for just $770.

HP Pavilion | AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT | AMD Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD | $1,239.99 (opens in new tab)

ABS Master Gaming PC| AMD RX 6600 XT | AMD Ryzen 5 5600 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,199.99 (opens in new tab)

ABS Master Gaming PC| AMD RX 6600 XT | AMD Ryzen 5 5600 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,199.99 $899.99 at Newegg (save $400) (opens in new tab)
This PC is a fairly straightforward deal, and not going to lie you could build something like this yourself relatively easily and cheaply. However, if you're buying for someone else this holiday season and want the whole package, this is a great 1080p gaming machine. The RAM is not only dual-channel, it's also DDR4-3200 which is always much appreciated. You also might want to see about bagging an SSD deal (opens in new tab) to bump up that storage capacity. 

Yeyian Katana X10 | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | Intel Core i5 11400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,399.99 (opens in new tab)

Yeyian Katana X10 | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | Intel Core i5 11400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,399.99 $949.99 at Newegg (save $450) (opens in new tab)
OK, here's one heck of a deal for an RTX 3060 Ti rig, fully $100 cheaper than the ABS Master PC below. Specs mirror the ABS rig, including that seductive RTX 3060 Ti GPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The main difference is the 11th Gen rather than 12th Gen Intel CPU. But that's a fairly minor detail and not one you'd feel in game. $849 for a 3060 Ti rig remains one heck of a deal. 

Asus ROG Strix G10 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Core i5 11400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,129.99 (opens in new tab)

Asus ROG Strix G10 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Core i5 11400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,129.99 $909.98 at Amazon (save $220.01) (opens in new tab)
Granted, you don't get a massive amount of storage space with this one, but at least you get a great CPU/GPU combo for the price. 16GB of RAM should be more than enough for gaming, and with a bit of a discount, you could update your SSD later on down the line.

iBuyPower SlateMESH | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700F | 500GB SSD | 1TB HDD | $1,249.99 (opens in new tab)

If you're looking for a little more processing power and don't mind paying a little more for it, this machine offers Intel's excellent Alder Lake architecture for just that. It's still an RTX 3060, and it's not the cheapest PC with one of those, but with decent storage options and 16GB of RAM (2x 8GB) it is a great all-rounder.

Dell XPS | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | Intel Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD | (opens in new tab)

Dell XPS | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | Intel Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $1,649.99 $1,149.99 at Dell (save $500) (opens in new tab)
Packing some tasty DDR5 RAM, this one comes with a great CPU/GPU combo that wont have trouble at 1440p. The only real let down is the addition of a hard drive. You can always add more SATA or NVMe SSD storage at a later date, otherwise its still a great machine... if you don't mind long load times.

iBuyPower TraceMR Gaming Desktop | Nvidia RTX 3070 | Intel i7 12700F | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD|  $1,449.99 (opens in new tab)

This iBuyPower gaming PC comes with a solid amount of RAM, an Intel i7 12700F, an Nvidia RTX 3070, and 1TB of NVMe SSD storage. All of this should satisfy a ton of games right now. This deal is a nice package for a little over $1,000 and one of the better ones you can pick up right now.

This all AMD offering from HP will put you in a great position for 1440p gaming. It's packing a Ryzen 5000-series processor, meaning you won't be able to swap to Zen 4 so easily, but you won't necessarily need to for a while. Not only do you get a good chunk of storage, you also get 16GB DDR4-3200 which is not bad to top off a great core spec.

A very current machine here that'll see you right at 1080p and even 1440p. That's a great last Gen Intel CPU, and the RTX 3070 has a lot going for it too. 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM isn't too bad, either and it's dual channel which is always appreciated. Top that with a full 1TB of NVMe storage and you're onto a winner.

Knocking $700 off the price of this rig has made superbly tempting. It may not have the most current CPU but that RTX 3080, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB SSD makes it a gaming PC which will run happily out of the box without any issues. A little more RAM wouldn't have gone amiss for the price, but it'll still ace most games you throw at it.

Alienware Aurora R14 | AMD RX 6800 XT | Ryzen 7 5800X | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $2,399.99 (opens in new tab)

It's worth remembering just what a fantastic graphics card the RX 6800 XT is. It's at the same level as the RTX 3080 outside of ray tracing, and generally comes in a lot cheaper. That means this Alienware machine is less expensive than an equivalent Nvidia-powered version, and still comes with 16GB RAM. That 512GB SSD is a bit miserly though, even if it comes with some slow data storage as a backup.

The glorious-looking Hyte Y60 is the clothing around this high-powered RTX 4080-based machine. Alongside the latest Nvidia card is the most powerful gaming CPU around today in Intel's Raptor Lake Core i9, and 32GB of DDR5-6000 memory. That 1TB SSD is a full PCIe 4.0 option, too, so it's a proper speedy li'l drive. There's also a 1,000W PSU with a 16-pin power connector, so hopefully less chance of an adapter melting your rig...

If you don't want a hulking gaming laptop, let me introduce the Zephyrus 14: 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. That $500 saving doesn't hurt either.

Acer Predator Helios 300 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 512GB SSD | $1,499.99 (opens in new tab)

There are plenty of RTX 3060 gaming laptops for $999, but what sets the Helios 300 apart is that traditional gaming chassis ensures you've got plenty of airflow to keep the 130W RTX 3060 running harder for longer. The rest of the spec is tasty at this price tag too.

Gigabyte Aorus 5 SE4 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,299.99 (opens in new tab)

Here's a very well-rounded gaming laptop worth the money asked for it. The RTX 3070 is a great mobile gaming GPU with the power to make the most of the G15's 165Hz screen. Beyond that, however, you have AMD's excellent Ryzen 7 6800H. That's a chip that's mighty for gaming and multitasking, so this laptop is really well-suited to all sorts of use cases.

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | AMD RX 6800S | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS | 14-inch | 1600p | 120Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,899.99 (opens in new tab)

Ah man, I am sorely tempted, because the G14 is one of the loveliest gaming laptops around. And that's from someone hopelessly in love with the Razer Blade 14. The combination of top-end Ryzen mobile CPU and performance Radeon GPU is impressive. That RX 6800S is only a shade behind the RTX 3070 in notebook form, and the rest of the spec rocks, too, especially that 120Hz 2560 x 1600 resolution screen.

The mobile take on the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is a beastly GPU that'll chomp through games, especially at this laptop's 1080p native resolution. You'll stand a good chance of hitting that 165Hz refresh rate at the very least. You also get a powerful AMD CPU, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and a healthy 1TB NVMe SSD. There are a bunch of ecoupons Lenovo has in place that you can add to the basket, too: BLACKFRIDAYGAME and HOLIDAYSURPRISE. That's how you get the extra discount down to $1,450.

This deal isn't as hot as it was early Friday, but it's still a good price. For the cost of some RTX 3060 laptops, you can net an RTX 3070 Ti, a high-end up-to-date Intel CPU, plenty of RAM and storage, and all packed into a chassis that we've been fans of for a long time. It's billed as more of a creator laptop, as an Nvidia Studio laptop, and that's what we've always used these laptops for on-team. Hence the 4K resolution. But you could still game at high-res on this machine with the spec it delivers.

It's an old code, sir, but it checks out. That's still an RTX 3080 GPU in there, even if it's plugged into an 11th Gen Intel CPU it'll still game like a hero. The rest of the spec is pretty decent, too, and means you'll have an RTX 3080-based system for less than an RTX 3070 Ti.

AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 300Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,199.99 (opens in new tab)

An immense component combo here, one that's sure to smash anything you throw at it, especially at its native 1080p resolution. It's not the cheapest we've seen it, but you may even be able to make the most of that speedy 300Hz refresh rate screen with gear like that under the hood.

If you're not bothered about gaming and simply need a laptop for work, then this Dell machine is a good place to start. The Tiger Lake Core i5 may be getting on a bit now, but it's still capable enough. The RAM and SSD aren't much to get excited about, but for $400 it's acceptable for a school machine with a decent size screen.

The Dell XPS 13 is one of the best office notebooks around. I've been in love with the design since I first got my hands on one, and they're outstanding devices. This machine comes with a healthy complement of DDR5 memory and a relatively capacious SSD, too. The CPU only has a pair of Performance Cores, but with a further eight Efficient Alder Lake cores there's a lot of multithreaded performance baked inside that slim chassis.

Atop a great entry-level hardware spec, you get a lovely OLED panel, though sadly you're locked at 60Hz if you're looking to get some gaming underway. You'd have to turn the settings down to get over 60 fps anyway, and that doesn't make it bad for gaming, just not great for super competitive games. Productivity tasks shouldn't be an issue, though, and this is the cheapest it's ever been.

Black Friday graphics card deals

ASRock Radeon RX 6600 | 8GB GDDR6 | 1,762 shaders| 2,491MHz Boost | $249.99 (opens in new tab)

ASRock Radeon RX 6600 | 8GB GDDR6 | 1,762 shaders| 2,491MHz Boost | $249.99 $209.99 at Newegg (save $40) (opens in new tab)
The RX 6600 wasn't a great card at launch, but you can't ignore it at this price. It's over $100 off its reference MSRP, and frankly you won't find a better deal on any card from the competition that gets anywhere close to this sort of value at this price. If you can't stretch your budget to an RX 6650 XT, this is the way to go for 1080p gaming. 

Gigabyte Eagle Radeon RX 6650 XT | 8GB GDDR6 | 2,048 shaders | 2,635MHz boost | $299.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte Eagle Radeon RX 6650 XT | 8GB GDDR6 | 2,048 shaders | 2,635MHz boost | $299.99 $259.99 at Newegg (save $40 after rebate) (opens in new tab)
This doesn't sound like such a crazy price from the Newegg listing, but trust me, it's one the best we've seen in, literally, years. The original version of this card launched for $379, competing with the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060. Today, the slightly faster RX 6650 XT version is less than the price of most RTX 3050s. Let that sink in for a moment. And it's a triple-fan cooler from a trusted manufacturer.

Sapphire Pulse RX 6700 | 10GB GDDR6 | 2,304 shaders | 2,495MHz Boost | $369.99 (opens in new tab)

Sapphire Pulse RX 6700 | 10GB GDDR6 | 2,304 shaders | 2,495MHz Boost | $369.99 $329.99 at Newegg (save $40) (opens in new tab)
This Sapphire card is a slightly overclocked version of the non-XT RX 6700, and that puts this card in the performance bracket between the RX 6650 XT and the RTX 3060 Ti from Nvidia. That will make it an excellent 1080p card, and a capable 1440p GPU for that matter.

XFX Speedster SWFT309 Radeon RX 6700 | 10GB GDDR6 | 2,304 shaders | 2,425MHz Boost | $399.99 (opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster SWFT309 Radeon RX 6700 | 10GB GDDR6 | 2,304 shaders | 2,425MHz Boost | $399.99 $349.99 at Best Buy (save $50) (opens in new tab)
With a larger GPU and more memory to use in game, the RX 6700 is a solid step up from the RX 6650 XT. We tend to see these go for a little more with the XT version, but this non-XT option keeps the price a bit more reasonable while still delivering solid gaming performance for 1080p and 1440p.

MSI Mech RX 6750 XT | 12GB | 2,560 shaders | 2,618MHz | $549.99 (opens in new tab)

MSI Mech RX 6750 XT | 12GB | 2,560 shaders | 2,618MHz | $549.99 $369.99 at Newegg (save $180 after rebate) (opens in new tab)
We wouldn't normally be recommending the RX 6750 XT, after all it was the only RX 6x50 card that didn't make a lick of sense. It was only a slightly faster version of the RX 6700 XT but for a chunk more cash. This one, however, is a slightly faster version for a chunk less cash. And if you want a frame of reference from the last gen, it performs at a similar level to the RTX 2080 Ti. A former $1,200 GPU.

MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3060 Ti | 8GB GDDR6 | 4,864 shaders | 1,695MHz Boost | $459.99 (opens in new tab)

MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3060 Ti | 8GB GDDR6 | 4,864 shaders | 1,695MHz Boost | $459.99 $419.99 at Newegg (save $40, plus get a free copy of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide) (opens in new tab)
Not quite as cheap as it was earlier this week, but now it comes with a free copy of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. If you're dead set on an Nvidia GPU, the RTX 3060 Ti has been, and pretty much still is, the best value buy of the bunch. 

Zotac RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge | 8GB GDDR6 | 4,864 shaders | 1,695MHz Boost | $399.99 (opens in new tab)

An RTX 3060 Ti below MSRP. It's taken a long time, but it's finally happened. In standard gaming terms it's still offers the same level of frame rates as an RX 6700 XT, but has the added benefit of actually being able to deal with ray tracing at mid-range resolutions.

Zotac RTX 3060 Ti Amp White | 8GB GDDR6 | 4,864 shaders | 1,755MHz Boost | $409.99 (opens in new tab)

Another RTX 3060 Ti under MSRP thanks to another Zotac promo code. But this time you get both a funky white aesthetic and a pretty healthy GPU overclock to boot. The RTX 3060 Ti is still a great 1440p gaming card even this far down the road after release.

Gigabyte RX 6700 XT Eagle | 12GB GDDR6 | 2,560 shaders | 2,581MHz Boost | $469.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte RX 6700 XT Eagle | 12GB GDDR6 | 2,560 shaders | 2,581MHz Boost | $469.99 $409.99 at Newegg (save $60 w/ promo code BFDBY2A788) (opens in new tab)
This RX 6700 XT is cheaper than the lowest cost RTX 3060 Ti we've found, and delivers the same rasterized gaming performance. For ray tracing, it's admittedly slower, but honestly, you're probably not going to want to turn RT on with the Nvidia card, either. This is a quality mid-range card, with a serious triple-fan cooler to boot. 

Yeston RTX 3080 | 10GB GDDR6X | 8,704 shaders | 1,710MHz Boost | $1,099 (opens in new tab)

Yeston RTX 3080 | 10GB GDDR6X | 8,704 shaders | 1,710MHz Boost | $1,099 $769 at Newegg (save $330) (opens in new tab)
If you're not willing to wait until December, or are willing to pay another $70 just for the artwork alone, this Yeston RTX 3080 isn't a bad price considering where the card has been retailing for the past year or two. In pure raster terms, the RX 6900 XT is cheaper and a bit quicker, but throw in any ray tracing elements and the GeForce card will push ahead.

Normally retailing for around $150, this is the cheapest we've seen the Acer, and one of the cheapest high refresh rate gaming monitors you'll find this Black Friday. As an entry-level 1080p screen this is an excellent price.

The Acer Nitro is a budget IPS screen with genuine gaming credentials. It's got a super low response time at 0.5ms and a 165Hz refresh rate. It may only be a 24-inch panel, but there's a lot to like about this bargainous display.

I love a Dell panel, they pretty much always look fantastic out of the box, and this gaming focused screen ticks all the boxes. Most especially that combo of 1ms IPS and 165Hz refresh rate. Banging. It's also never been cheaper to bag this 27-inch 1080p gamer.

(opens in new tab)This is an absolute banger of a monitor deal. I struggle to believe you're going to find an IPS screen with the same size, such a high resolution, and such a high refresh rate for less than the $230 Best Buy is asking.

This big screen LG gaming monitor has never been cheaper than it is right now, and it's a great price for a genuine known-brand 1440p display. Yes, it's VA not IPS, but it will still deliver great colors and sports a high refresh rate alongside its AMD FreeSync tech.

This is an old monitor now, having launched in 2017, but it's still an outstanding full G-Sync IPS gaming monitor. It's been selling for this price since mid-October, so it's not precisely a Black Friday deal, but we've never seen it cheaper.

4K gaming monitors aren't necessarily super expensive anymore, but the GPUs that will really allow you to game in 4K at acceptable frame rates still are. For our money, if you want something more expansive than a 1440p panel you need an ultrawide. This VA panel from Acer has the ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio and a high refresh rate to boot. It's also never been cheaper than today.

A couple of years ago when the Acer Nitro XV273K launched, it was a $899 monitor. It currently has an MSRP of $499. But it's now yours for just $379.99. For a proper 4K, 144Hz, IPS gaming panel. It's also good for 1ms response and 400 nits of brightness. So, maybe the question is, can you afford not to go 4K...?

LG is the originator of the IPS panel technology and its 1ms response is about as fast as you're going to see this sort of screen get. And with a potential 180Hz overclock available on this big screen, 1440p display, the LG Ultragear has a lot to offer for the money, and it's only ever been cheaper than this once before.

Confusingly, there are at least two other G5 models. But we think this is the one you want. It's a 21:9, 34-inch ultra-wide bad boy with 165Hz refresh and 1ms response. It's not a fancy HDR model with a mini-LED backlight. But at this price point, that's pretty much a given.

Obviously, $600 is still a lot of money, but the beauty of spending big on a gaming monitor is that it will likely still be a great screen long after you've moved on from your current gaming PC. And this big screen 4K IPS panel is no exception, with a 1ms response, and the all-important high 144Hz refresh rate. It's not a bargain, but it's a very good price for a big boi screen.

This QLED TV makes for an excellent second screen for streaming and playing some games at 4K/60FPS. The picture quality also makes it a good TV for an office or bedroom. Yeah, it's a bummer it doesn't support 120Hz at 4K, but it's not too big of a loss if you don't have the hardware to reach those heights.

LG OLED A2 | 48-inch | 4K | OLED | 60Hz | $1,299.99 $569.99 at Best Buy (save $730) (opens in new tab)

This is a great price for a 4K OLED TV, and at 48 inches it's still viable as a very large PC monitor. A word of caution, though: It's limited to 60Hz, so if you've just got yourself a nice GPU and want to push games as far as you can, this will be a limiting factor.

Only the best gaming TV on the planet with a $630 saving right now. Oof. Yeah, this is the real LG OLED deal, and at the 42-inch scale actually makes for an amazing gaming monitor. The HDMI 2.1 makes 4K at 120Hz a reality on PC, and the lightning-fast response of OLED panels makes it glorious for gaming. Yum.

A fantastic OLED offering for gamers, with deep blacks, HDMI 2.1, and all the VRR options you could handle. This one offers low input lag and is topped off with a nifty 120Hz refresh rate. Sure, there are higher refresh rate monitors but, a 55-inch gaming OLED TV sounds pretty great as a giant second monitor for that price.

While the UQ75 isn't particularly gaming focused, an 86-inch beast that's under $1,000 is a solid deal. The huge size means you won't be replacing your PC monitor, but if you're looking for a living room TV that you can also stream games to (or use with a living room PC) then this is worth a look, especially with the 120Hz refresh rate.
