Cyber Monday gaming PC deals offer another chance to get your hands on one of the best gaming PCs for less this year. It should be noted, however, that the extent of the deals and discounts available are likely to be less exciting than what's typically found with Black Friday gaming PC deals, but if nothing caught your eye over the weekend then maybe the following week will have something more for you. 

We know for some that the prebuilt route is far from ideal, especially if you're a seasoned PC builder, but given that the best graphics cards and best CPU for gaming are harder than ever to come by right now, it's currently the best way to save you money in the long run with the (seemingly) never-ending component chase. 

Cyber Monday isn't quite with us just yet, so if you're looking to save money on your next system sooner rather than later, we recommend checking out our top picks for some great cheap gaming PC deals available right now - starting from under $700. 

When will the Cyber Monday gaming PC deals start?

Cyber Monday is happening on November 29, this year. It's worth remembering, however, that deals are likely to begin as early as the Saturday succeeding Black Friday, and could extend out through the rest of the week, as we've seen become more commonplace in recent years. 

Where will the best Cyber Monday gaming PC deals be?

We generally find that Amazon, being the world's largest online retailer, tends to have a good selection of Cyber Monday gaming PC deals to choose from, with Dell holding some of the deeper discounts on its line of Alienware PCs as well. That's not to count out the likes of Newegg and eBuyer, which have offered some stellar savings on prebuilt systems in the past, too. Here's what you can expect from the most important retailers ahead of the sales event. 

Amazon: Some of the fairest prices on prebuilt gaming PCs online
Dell: A handful of Alienware Aurora deals are available right now for less
Best Buy: Few deals right now but competitive rates on all major PC brands
Walmart: Cheap prices on entry-level PC configurations
Newegg: You can currently save up to 16% on ABS prebuilt gaming rigs

Amazon: Minor deals and low rates on major gaming PC brands right now
Currys: Few deals, but offers a wide variety of prebuilt systems
eBuyer: You can currently save up to £350 on AlphaSync RTX 30-series PCs
Overclockers UK: Mostly stocks high-end configurations at good prices
Very: Regular discounts available on PC Specialist machines

Cyber Monday gaming PC deals: What to expect

Amazon and Dell (in the US) tend to be the frontrunners hosting the largest Cyber Monday gaming PC deals. However, the vast majority of deep discounts on prebuilt gaming PCs tend to fly off the shelves on Black Friday, so if there's anything that you catch wind of over the weekend, it's unlikely to hang around for too long. That doesn't mean that deals aren't available on Cyber Monday, though they typically aren't quite as expansive or plentiful by comparison.

Our price comparison software works around the clock to bring you some of the best prices on our favorite gaming PCs this side of Cyber Monday. 

Alienware Aurora R12: This computer is our number one pick for best gaming PC for its sleek design, customisability, and reliability. If there's one rig that you consider on the day, we strongly recommend an Aurora build. 

Acer Predator Orion 3000: It's one of the more affordable all-rounders starting at quite a competitive rate for some serious gaming performance for less. We're fond of how easy it is to upgrade, too, so it will serve you well for years to come. 

Corsair One: This is the kind of gaming PC that you get if you're after something in a small form factor that doesn't compromise on power or performance. Upgrading may be challenging, but the right manufacturer configuration is sure to see you through the next 5 years easily. 

If you're in the market for top-of-the-line hardware, why settle for anything less than the best gaming monitor, or the best gaming keyboards around?
