***Update: Prime Day is over now, so all these deals are now expired***
If you haven’t noticed, Amazon is the go-to place right now for discounts and offers on PC parts and peripherals—you can check out all the best Amazon Prime Day deals here. Their summer sales event for Amazon Prime members is a bit of a bonanza only surpassed by the usual Black Friday and January sales periods that feel more traditional, from those big ticket items you’ve been waiting to crash in price.
However, such is the impact of Prime Day and the number of shoppers it draws in— other companies are keen to get involved too. Because a lot of us are already in the mood for PC gaming deals, you’ll see retailers like Walmart, Newegg and BestBuy trying to jump on that bandwagon with offerings of their own—sometimes with deal periods spanning longer time periods than Amazon’s. Which means, overall, your chances of picking up a deal—be it one of the best gaming monitors, best SSDs for gaming or best graphics cards—are looking pretty healthy indeed. To illustrate this, here’s a selection of ten of the best of the rest from other retailers such as Walmart and Newegg.
Alienware Aurora gaming PC | i7-9700K | RTX 2070 8GB | 16GB RAM | 256GB SSD | $1399.99 at Dell (save $530) (opens in new tab)
Serious savings on this seriously nicely spec'd gaming PC from Alienware available at Dell now. That's basically a quarter off this machine. Alienware M17 gaming laptop | 17.3" 1080p IPS | Core i7 | RTX 2070 8GB | 16GB RAM | 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $1499.99 at Dell (save $850) (opens in new tab)
If you want a powerful portable machine, maybe as a desktop replacement you can take on the road, this is a solid discount—the same laptop is going for $1,900 elsewhere.

The 15" version of Dell's laptop also marks a fine saving on a powerful and quite future proof (as far as that is possible) gaming laptop. To have all that power in a portable rig is quite something and, combined with the saving, this won't last long. Logitech G502 gaming mouse | $45.99 at Walmart (save $8.01) (opens in new tab)
This is nearly the lowest price we've ever seen this mouse and so it offers great value. Particularly given Logitech's great gaming pedigree. (Expired) Dualshock 4 controller | $39.99 on Ebay (save $20) (opens in new tab)
Our favorite controller for PC is cheaper new on Ebay than on Amazon. If you wore one out playing Sekiro, time for a new pad. Comes in red, black, gold, and transparent! Dell G5587-5542BLK-PUS | 15.6" 1080p | i5-8300H | GTX 1060 | 16GB RAM | $779 at Walmart (save $320) (opens in new tab)
