Cyber Monday gaming PC deals: FAQs

When will Cyber Monday Gaming PC deals be live?

Cyber Monday is on November 28 this year. Although, as Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been merging closer together in recent years, we'd recommend you have your wits about you for the week leading up to Black Friday as well, which is happening on the 25th.

Should I wait until Cyber Monday to buy a gaming PC?

Given that Cyber Monday happens right after Black Friday (which starts earlier and earlier every year), we personally wouldn't recommend waiting specifically for Cyber Monday gaming PC deals. We don't expect stock shortages to be as big an issue as they have been in previous years, but Black Friday and Cyber Monday are competitive, and we'd always bet on the early birds to catch the worms.

If it's Cyber Monday or nothing - Smaller virtual storefronts, such as Newegg and Overclockers UK, are more likely to have deals and stock. Previously we've seen these two in particular with offers on customizable configurations of ABS and OcUK machines.

If you're desperate, keep one eye fixed on the storefronts from early on in the week of Black Friday. With the other eye, if you can, pay attention to our coverage, as we'll be bringing you the best deals we can find as and when they drop.

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 are some important retailers to keep an eye on during the week of Black Friday and into Cyber Monday.

US:

Amazon:
Some of the fairest prices on prebuilt gaming PCs online (opens in new tab)
Dell: A handful of deals on the Alienware Aurora range (opens in new tab)
Best Buy: Competitive rates on all major PC brands (opens in new tab)

Cyber Monday gaming PC deals: What to expect

Amazon and Dell (in the US) tend to be the frontrunners in terms of 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. Demand for gaming PC deals goes up every year, so if there's a great offer that goes live on the Friday, we'd be shocked if stocks last until Cyber Monday. That doesn't mean that new deals aren't available on Cyber Monday, but it is something to be aware of as the weeks count down.

With 40 series GPUs releasing over the next month, and 30 series GPUs finally in a stable supply state, we'd expect to see plenty of deals and offers on solid gaming PCs. SSD is in a fantastic place price-wise at the moment as well, so we have high hopes that Cyber Monday will bring about some amazing deals for gaming PC shoppers.

Down below, we've pulled out lists of the best Cyber Monday gaming PC deals we saw in the UK and US last year. If you want a good idea of what was on offer, and how much you could potentially save, please do read on.

Ever since playing Journey at the age of 15, I’ve been desperate to cover video games for a living. After graduating from Edinburgh Napier University with a degree in Journalism, I contributed to the Scottish Games Network and completed an Editorial Internship over at Expert Reviews. Besides that, I’ve been managing my own YouTube channel and Podcast for the last 7 years. It’s been a long road, but all that experience somehow landed me a dream job covering gaming hardware. I’m a self-confessing PlayStation fanboy, but my experience covering the larger business and developer side of the whole industry has given me a strong knowledge of all platforms. When I’m not testing out every peripheral I can get my hands on, I’m probably either playing tennis or dissecting game design for an upcoming video essay. Now, I better stop myself here before I get talking about my favourite games like HUNT: Showdown, Dishonored, and Towerfall Ascension.
