Christmas deals - what can we expect?

CPU deals are rare, so we hope to see some this Christmas

(Image credit: AMD, Intel)

Based on market trends and sales from previous years, we've broken down the most popular product categories and what we think you can expect over the holidays. In short, November and December tend to be one of the best times to buy SSDs, high-end displays, gaming laptops, peripherals like webcams and headsets, and graphics cards, especially last year's models or older, as the brand new cards rarely get much of a discount.

1. SSDs

SSDs have tumbled in price over the past couple of years, with bigger and bigger drives becoming more affordable. While HDDs still offer superb value for 2-6TB options, the rise of SSDs is seemingly unstoppable. Even NVMe drives, once the reserve of high-end builds, are within the reach of more casual PC builders. You'll always need more storage, and you'll usually find SSDs cheaper during the holiday.

SSD deals are staples of Holiday Sales

2. IPS gaming monitors

While we'll see a significant reduction across all gaming monitors during the holidays, this year should see a decent dip for IPS panels. TN screens are always reduced in price, but IPS displays have seen fewer savings... until now. While 4K HDR displays are nice, only the most powerful gaming PCs can drive them at a decent framerate. What makes IPS panels nice is that they'll give you a step up in visual quality over a TN panel regardless of the resolution your PC can handle—it's the panel itself that's better.

3. Older 20-series graphics cards

We've already started to see Nvidia reducing the price of GPUs that are less than a year old. The original 2060, 2070, and 2080s have been replaced by 'Super' variants, and while the newer cards are undoubtedly stronger performers and offer better overall value, not all of us can afford a brand new 2080 Super. Thankfully, the holiday will see retailers selling off stock of older 20-series cards, potentially at decent discounts. This could also have a knock-on effect for pre-builts and some laptops with these GPUs in them, too.

To use a live example: we saw the Gigabyte GeForce 2080 Gaming OC card drop to $699 in June following the full reveal of the Supers, and that card started 2019 at over $100 more. It has rallied a little now, but keep an eye out for lightning deals and other limited-time discounts.

Been waiting for a new GPU? The holidays is a great time to nab one

4. Webcams and microphones

The rise of streaming has not escaped the attention of webcam and mic manufacturers. As such, recording set-ups that bring 1080p video and near-studio-grade audio are as affordable as ever. If you're serious about getting your face onto Twitch, the barrier to entry really has never been lower. And that goes doubly-so during holiday sales season.

During the recent Amazon Prime Day event, we saw one of our top webcams get reduced by 60 percent, which was one of the most significant savings of the entire sales event. And people snapped them up, along with a decent deal on the excellent Blue Yeti mic (opens in new tab)

5. Laptops

Yes, we see it every year. Retailers know that you're waiting to spend bigger during the holidays, and few purchases get more significant than a brand-new gaming laptop. 

When it comes to laptops, the capacity for upgrades and improvements is, naturally,  way smaller than desktop PCs. So you need to get as much as you can afford right off the bat. With the holidays approaching, it's your chance to get a better laptop than you thought you could actually afford. So far, we've seen some decent deals on RTX 2060 and 2070-powered laptops, as well as sub-$1,000 deals on entry-level laptops, usually sporting GTX 1660 Tis or comparable cards.

Gaming laptops see heavy price cuts during the holidays

6. Gaming chairs

While it's possible to find discounts on gaming chairs all year round, the manufacturers tend to slash prices further during the holiday season. The reason is that gaming chairs are a luxury, and therefore more likely to sell during a sales event. You don't need a 'gaming' chair, but any kind of quality desk chair is an excellent investment for your comfort and spinal health.

7. All kinds of gaming headsets

As certain as rain on your vacation and traffic on your commute, the holidays will play host to a wealth of discounts on gaming headsets. Anyone actually looking for a new pair of cans is in the best possible position, because not only do you see savings on older models but you also see fairly substantial savings on the newer ones too. Looking for a Corsair Virtuoso or a Steelseries Arctis series headset? Keep an eye out for discounts. Classics like the Razer Kraken series and the HyperX Cloud Alpha will be cheaper, too.

If you want a gaming chair, now is the time to strike

Money-saving tips

Gaming headsets are always reduced during the holidays

(Image credit: Future)

When you're faced with such a mass of deals during the holidays, it's easy to get lost. This article will serve as your best guide to all the offers once they're live, so it's a good idea to bookmark it and keep checking back to see what has been added. Here are some of the things we'll be doing to keep this article up to date.

1. Check the price-checkers

Every major retailer will shout as loud as possible about the savings they're offering. Finding deals isn't a problem, but checking whether or not they're worth it is more of a skill. We use sites like Came Camel Camel (opens in new tab) to keep an eye on the price history of items in order to see whether we're really saving money, or if the item's price was inflated the month before Christmas, only to be dropped again to make it seem like a good deal.

2. Set a budget, not a product

The real winners during the holidays are people who spend the same money as they might at any other time of year, but get a better thing. Say you have $500 to spend on a gaming monitor—you'll get a bigger, faster, shinier monitor for your $500 in December than you will in August..

We've already seen a bunch of Lenovo laptops reduced

4. Look out for codes

Some retailers, like Newegg, offer codes and additional rebates on their sale items, and a surprising number of people miss them. When you're shopping for components during the holidays, keep an eye out for extra codes and for rebate cards. In some cases, things like GPUs and CPUs come with free games and software too.

5. Sign up early

Many retailers, like Amazon, offer prices exclusively for members. In Amazon's case, it's Prime, but other retailers have free membership schemes that give you an edge when shopping for deals. You'll sometimes get free delivery, too, and you're often given a head-start on some savings or the ability to checkout fast. If you're looking for a hugely popular item which is likely to sell out, make sure you're all signed into a site and ready with an account, because you don't want to be doing that stuff while you're desperately trying to lock down a purchase.

Our approach to deal hunting

Sometimes, it's easy to forget that PC Gamer is a team of people, writing for a broad audience of readers all over the world. We're part of the PC gaming community, just like you, and we love our hobby with the same passion. When we're searching through these Christmas deals, we always keep that simple fact at the forefront. We want to save you money so you can continue to enjoy your gaming PC.

We will only recommend deals that are worth looking at. Some products and offers are never going to be for you, but they might be perfect for someone else who is on a different budget or has different PC needs. Crucially, every deal has to represent excellent value and be something we would be happy to spend our money on, too.

We don't take sides, either. Whether it's Intel, AMD, Nvidia, Razer, Corsair, Steelseries, MSI, or another brand, we're only interested in picking out the best stuff and the most competitive prices.

Expired deals

While these especially good deals are currently expired or out of stock, we'll keep them here just in case they reappear again.

He built his first gaming PC at the tender age of 16, and finally finished bug-fixing the Cyrix-based system around a year later. When he dropped it out of the window. He first started writing for Official PlayStation Magazine and Xbox World many decades ago, then moved onto PC Format full-time, then PC Gamer, TechRadar, and T3 among others. Now he's back, writing about the nightmarish graphics card market, CPUs with more cores than sense, gaming laptops hotter than the sun, and SSDs more capacious than a Cybertruck.
