The best Cyber Monday SSD deals are still available if you've been looking to build a new PC or just update your storage. Games are getting bigger and bigger so the more storage space you can grab at a discount, the better. Red Dead Redemption 2 requires a massive 150GB of space, and that's obviously not accounting for any other games, music, or photos you might have installed on your PC. 

And if you haven't already experienced the magic of blazing fast boot times or games that load in just a few seconds—or even 1TB of storage or more—you should really consider getting an SSD. Cyber Monday SSD deals we've found so far include the Samsung 860 EVO, our favorite SSD for gaming, at a nice discount. 

We'll keep updating the best SSD deals until Cyber Monday ends. And if you're on the prowl for some other great deals, head on over to our main Cyber Monday PC gaming deals page for some other great discounts.

We are officially into the Cyber Monday period, where we see better (and more) deals crop up than the earlier ones over the last couple of weeks. This weekend is when most retailers save their best deals, but there's no guarantee that your chosen SSD will still be in stock.

If you're looking for the absolute best deal, time's a tickin', so if you see something you like out of the best deals we've found so far, jump on that like a kid on a trampoline. You can take a little bit of time, though, with actual Cyber Monday just around the corner on December 2.  Current early Cyber Monday deals will run right into those, and will also likely run until Christmas. 

We're collecting all the best deals from across the web for PC gaming, from the latest graphics cards to the most comfortable gaming chairs, and everything in-between. Stay tuned to PC Gamer all through Black Friday and Cyber Monday for up to the minute savings.

How to save money on SSDs during Cyber Monday

(Image credit: Crucial)

You can expect to see a lot of price cuts this November, so how can you be sure you're getting a good Cyber Monday deal? While we'll be searching out the best possible deals during the event itself, there are also a handful of common sense tips that will help make the process feel less overwhelming.

1. Check the price history

Every retailer will be touting its massive price cuts, but are those discounts as good as advertised? Sites like CamelCamelCamel can help you check. As well as letting you easily compare the price of a selected drive across many different sites, it also gives you access to its price history. A common trick is to display massive discounts based on the manufacturer's recommended price—a price that SSD may not have been sold at for years.

2. Do the research

Does your motherboard have an M.2 slot? Will your most played games all fit onto a 1TB SSD? How much are you willing to spend on extra storage? It's worth taking some time to find out what you need or want and what drives would help you achieve that. Some flexibility will help you get the best deal, but it's also worth setting a budget to ensure that you're not spending slightly more on a good deal for a drive you don't need.
