It's hard to resist some of the Amazon Prime Day PC gaming deals that are everywhere this week, but maybe you don't have to. Sure, if you're after a gaming laptop deal or you're hoping to snag a new GPU, you're going to be paying out a chunk of money. But there are plenty of cheap Prime Day PC gaming deals that won't break the bank, or leave you panicked because you've already spent the entirety of next month's paypacket on a new toy.
It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking you have to spend big bucks to reap the rewards of a decent saving on Prime Day but that's not the case at all. There are plenty of deals that suit even a tight budget and there are still generous savings to be had on even the most modest of purchases.
These are my favorite guilt-free sub-$50 Prime Day deals available right now.
Take the Razer DeathAdder V2 wired mouse, for example. It's currently sitting at the top of our best gaming mouse list for 2022, and you can snag it right now for just under $30.
Maybe you're in the market for a new set of cans? The Corsair HS60 Pro is on sale for $40. It may not be the most flashy headset in the world, but it still offers decent sound quality and a clear mic. Perfect if you don't want to spend a lot but still want to communicate on comms with your teammates, or the occasional work meeting.
A little extra storage isn't a problem either. For $45 you can snag a 500GB Crucial X6 portable SSD. It may not offer as much space as some of the other Prime Day SSD deals, but for the price, it's well worth considering if you're on a budget.
We're on the second day of Prime Day now, so some deals will start disappearing soon. If nothing listed here is doing it for you, you can check out our general Prime Day PC gaming deals hub, which is updated daily, and have a look through to see if there's anything you might've missed.

You always need more storage, right? I mean, games aren't getting any smaller, so dropping another 500GB chunk into your motherboard (if you have a spare M.2 slot available) is always worth a shot. At under $50 this is a good amount of storage that's many times faster than the quickest SATA SSD.
