This may be your last chance to bag a new gaming PC this side of the new year, because while the big weekend has passed there are still Cyber Monday gaming PC deals around for the picking. But these remaining deals are likely to sell through fast, though there is a chance a handful more discounts might drop throughout Cyber Week this year.
The key element to look for when buying a pre-built PC at this time of year will be delivery date, especially if you want it to arrive by Christmas. Some PCs may be discounted but not actually ship until next year. Make sure to triple-check when your new PC purchase is planned to turn up.
There are gaming PC deals that will can arrive far quicker than that, if you don't feel the need to customize them to your needs. The iBuyPower RDY prebuilt systems can ship out in a matter of days, and will still get you some of the best CPU and GPU combinations you will find today.
Bear in mind that we're seeing a lot of these Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals set to end today. That means you probably don't want to dawdle if you want to save some cash, and we can help make sure you find a gaming rig that's actually on sale.

Cyber Monday gaming PC deals in the US
iBuyPower Trace MR | Nvidia RTX 3080 | Intel Core i7 11700KF |16GB RAM | 500GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD | $2,399.99 at Best Buy
At a decent price, you're getting a solid computer draped around a powerful (and elusive) graphics card. With a strong Rocket Lake CPU and a super-speedy NVMe SSD this machine will be a nice upgrade for most. At the very least you're getting a new GPU, and in the last 12 months, that's a win.
CyberPower Gamer Supreme | AMD Ryzen 9 5900X| AMD RX 6700 XT | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD + 1TB HDD |
$2,289.99 $2,099.99 at Microsoft (Save $190.00)
Here's a juicy, all AMD gaming PC with a decent chunk of money off. It's not the greatest deal, as that graphics card isn't quite up to par with others at this price range, but certainly worth a look if you're wanting to get the full AMD experience and a high core count CPU. Plus, that's a nice chunk of storage to keep you going.
iBuyPower TraceMR | RTX 3060 Ti | Core i7 11700F | 16GB RAM | 480GB SSD + 1TB HDD |
$1,599.99 $1,399.99 at Best Buy (save $200)
This is bang-on what we think is the right deal price for an RTX 3060 Ti gaming desktop, and it's not just giving you the GPU and skimping on the rest of the spec. The Intel Core i7 is a capable eight-core chip, the 16GB memory is exactly what you want from a modern gaming PC, and the 480GB SSD is just about big enough for Windows and a few key games. I would doubt it's an NVMe SSD, but even a SATA drive is far quicker than a standard hard drive.
ABS Master | Intel Core i5-11400F | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD |
$1,699.99 $1,499.99 at Newegg (save $200)
This isn't quite as good a deal as some systems we've spotted, but it does come with three free games from Intel and Nvidia. Plus it looks the part and comes with out of the box components, so some might prefer that to the more pre-built Dell systems above. Worth considering then, with a decent discount.
iBuyPower SlateMR | Radeon RX 6600 XT | Ryzen 7 3700X | 16GB RAM | 480GB SSD + 1TB HDD |
$1,349.99 $1,199.99 at Best Buy (save $150)
Performing around the same sort of level as an RTX 3060, sometimes above it, the RX 6600 XT in this rig is a quality 1080p GPU for the money. We're seeing the last-gen Ryzen CPUs, like this 3700X, being used in a lot of gaming PC deals, but it's still a quality octacore chip and has an upgrade path up to the very latest AMD CPUs.
Our mysterious deals bots are constantly searching the internet for the best prices on gaming PCs and regularly update the list below multiple times a day.
Cyber Monday gaming PC deals in the UK
AlphaSync iCUE | Nvidia RTX 3080 | AMD Ryzen 9 5900X | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD + 4TB HDD |
£2,700.03 £2,499.93 at Ebuyer (save £200.10)
Combined with the immense power of the 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen 9 5900X, the RTX 3080 in this machine is sure to sing. You'll be blasting through the likes of even Metro Exodus at high resolutions, on ultra graphics settings. And if the 4TB hard drive doesn't cut it, you can always add another NVMe SSD; the motherboard has dual PCIe 4.0 compatible M.2 slots.
Infinity X125 | Nvidia RTX 3080 | Intel Core i5 12600KF | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,609.20 at CyberPower
It's not on sale, but if you're looking ahead to the future with Intel Alder Lake, here's a PC with our current favourite chip for just over a grand and a half. With the RTX 3080 you'll get blistering frame rates at high res, whatever you throw at it. There is only 16GB of RAM, but it's dual channel so it's more than enough for gaming. Plus it's topped with a nice, high capacity WD Blue PCIe SSD.
AlphaSync Diamond | RTX 3060 | Ryzen 7 3700X | 16GB RAM | 500GB SSD + 2TB HDD |
£1,249.98 £1,049.99 at Ebuyer (save £199.99)
This is a great price for an RTX 3060 gaming rig, and though it's packing in last-gen AMD CPU tech, the octacore 3700X is still a mighty capable chip. With this spec you also get a healthy 16GB of system memory, a 500GB SSD, and a truly capacious 2TB of hard drive space for your Steam library overspill.
Cypher GXR | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Intel Core i5 11400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD |
£1,449 £1,149 at Very (save £300)
A nice little gaming PC here. Not only do you get a current-generation Nvidia GPU with ray tracing capability, paired with a great 11th Gen Intel CPU, you've got a decent amount of deep storage to keep your games downloaded on too. It also hits the sweet spot for RAM and, of course, has a good deal of RGB to hypnotise you with.
AlphaSync Diamond | Radeon RX 6600 | Ryzen 7 3700X | 16GB RAM | 500GB SSD + 1TB HDD |
£1,199.99 £999.99 at Ebuyer (save £200)
At under a grand this is a quality little gaming rig, sporting the latest RDNA 2 AMD GPU architecture in the RX 6600 and last-gen Ryzen tech in the 3700X. That's still a great 1080p gaming combo for the money, and the rest of the spec is solid, too.
PC Specialist Cypher GTi | Nvidia GTX 1660 Super | Intel Core i5 11400F | 1TB SSD | 16GB RAM |
£1,199 £979 at Very (save £220)
Decent gaming PCs for under £1,000 are rare in these silicon-starved days, but this deal means that you get a well-thought-out system for exactly that. The 1660 Super may lack ray tracing and DLSS goodness, but it performs well at 1080p, and the 11th Gen Core i5 won't hold you back either. The rest of the spec is spot on, and it's all encased in an attractive chassis with room for further expansion.
What should I look for in a Cyber Monday gaming PC deal?
We've got a handy crib sheet to help you spot whether a gaming PC is really a deal, so that's well worth checking out.
To the surprise of no one, trying to secure yourself a new GPU like an RTX 3080 or a Radeon RX 6600 has to turn into a full-time job for some folks. Though, we've noticed throughout the year that the only reliable way to grab yourself one of these cards was to bite the bullet and buy yourself a new prebuilt PC.
More people have caught on to this strategy, which has caused long lead times for shipping out these prebuilt gaming rigs. Despite this, it's still your best chance to get yourself a fancy new video card by Christmas.
So, if you're dead set on getting a PC with this hard-to-get hardware, you may have been more focused on stock than a discount. Since demand is so high, we don't expect to see big markdowns on gaming PCs with an RTX 30-series card. But, if a retailer is promising a week to two ship time instead of two months, you should probably jump on the deal.
If the focus is the best price, keep on an eye for any deals offering last-gen hardware like Zen 2 or Intel 10th Gen CPUs. Even Nvidia RTX 20-series GPUs. These are still pretty solid gaming machines and can easily be upgraded down the road if and when stock returns to normal for PC components.
As ever when hunting for bargains, focus on what you need, and don't be swayed to grab a deal just because it's cheap.
