Day 2 of Amazon’s ‘12 Days of Deals’ focuses on PC hardware

This is the best time of year to build or upgrade your PC, or add to it (like a new router). We're knee-deep in the holiday shopping season at this point, and that means there are deals galore. Amazon in particular is hitting the deals scene hard. This is day two of its '12 Days of Deals' event, each day of which focuses on a specific category. Today's focus is PC hardware.

There are all kinds of items on sale. We've already highlighted some of the better deals on Logitech's gaming peripherals and accessories, but that's just scratching a very large surface.

Here are some of the better bargains we came across:
