Amazon Prime Day PC deals may be officially over now, however, there are still a few savings to be had after the fact on some budget builds and premium models in the US and the UK. As has been the case with the two-day sales event, the former mostly has savings on ready-made rigs and the latter has opted for discounts on components instead. 

In terms of what's still available in these post-Amazon Prime Day PC deals, we've done our best to balance prices between both cheap rigs and higher-end machines which are still worth your time. Particular highlights include competitive rates on iBuyPower, Skytech, and HP Pavilion builds. 

There's representation from some of the best gaming PC brands here as well, not just the boutique builders which did tend to dominate with their deals on the day, too.

Amazon Prime Day PC deals - FAQs

Do I need a Prime Membership to access Prime Day PC deals?

Being an Amazon Prime subscriber with a membership is the ideal way to ensure that you're not missing out on any of the Prime Day PC deals. You need to be an Amazon Prime member to be eligible for the likes of lightning deals, with the best of what's available likely to be reserved for paying customers. 

When will Prime Day PC deals start?

Prime Day PC deals are happening on July 12 and 13 which is consistent with the historical date that the event generally sells out with the exception of the past two years. Early deals begin on June 21, so the world's largest online retailer should be rolling out the early Prime Day PC deals sooner rather than later. 

What will Amazon Prime Day PC deals look like in 2022?

Casting our minds back to the previous Prime Day PC deals can give us a rough indication of what to expect for this year's sales event. What's worth stating is that the primary focus is on individual components for a build rather than prebuilt machines in full, though, this could change this year. 

We saw deep discounts on then-previous generation processors from Both Intel and AMD, as well as substantial savings on everything from cases to cooling. One of the most competitive Prime Day PC deals was reserved for the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X which came down to its historic lowest ever rate. 

Based on this information, we're hoping to see discounts on the likes of the latest Gen 4 SSDs, Z690 motherboards, and 12th gen Intel and Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. Considering that these parts are already frequently discounted on any given day, we're hoping Prime Day PC deals can bring these components down to new lowest ever prices, too. 

Below you can find a roundup of the Prime Day PC deals which persisted throughout the two-day sales event. It's worth pointing out that you're going to want to get in early on Monday as all the aggressively priced deals will likely fly off the virtual shelves by the time that Tuesday comes around. 

Will there be prebuilt gaming PC deals on Prime Day?

While the vast majority of Prime Day gaming PC deals are going to be reserved for components, we're expecting that some boutique-built rigs could also have their prices slashed, too. We're expecting representation from the likes of Alienware (Dell), CyberPowerPC, HP, and Skytech just to name a few. Although the discounts may not be as extensive as the savings on the components themselves, you may be in luck if you want to go all-in on a readymade machine. 

As stated above, some online retailers will roll out their own offers to compete with Amazon, and we've previously observed Dell to house some of the best gaming PC deals around the Prime Day time period on its own systems. This means extensive discounts on the Aurora line, with the previous year's events offering up the likes of the Alienware Aurora R10 and R12 lines for some of the lowest rates we've seen up until that point on current-gen hardware. 

Are PC parts going to get cheaper?

If 2022 has taught us anything, it's that PC parts are getting cheaper. We're seeing cheaper rates on graphics cards, deeper discounts on the latest CPUs, and historic lowest-ever prices on NVMe SSDs. The only components which appear to remain the same on any given day are PSUs. We have seen power supplies of all different styles and wattages going on sale over Prime Day, though, so this could change. Similar can be said for cases, too. Due to prices coming down across the board, we should be in for some particularly aggressive rates in July. 

What to expect from Amazon Prime PC deals in 2022

  • Nvidia RTX 3050  prediction - $400 $339.99
  • Nvidia RTX 3060 prediction - $470 $409.99
  • Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti prediction - $599.99 
  • Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti prediction - $850 $699.99
  • Nvidia RTX 3080 prediction - $1,000 $899.99 
  • Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti prediction - $1,550 $1,199.99
  • Nvidia RTX 3090 prediction - $1,920 $1,799.99

As we touched upon above, the main difference between Prime Day PC deals in 2022 and the last prior sales is the declining prices on graphics cards across the board. While GPUs haven't quite returned to MSRP wholesale in the US and UK, the rates are far closer to what Nvidia and AMD originally intended with the RTX 30 series and the Radeon RX 6000 line launched just shy of two years ago. It's currently unknown as to whether we'll get graphics card deals over Prime Day, however, seeing as video cards have been selling at MSRP from specific retailers, albeit short-lived, we wouldn't be surprised to see the likes of RTX 3070 stock and RTX 3080 stock discounted further. 

  • Intel Core i5-12600K prediction - $342 $250 
  • Intel Core i7-12700K prediction - $496 $325
  • Intel Core i9-12900K prediction - $707 $590
  • AMD Ryzen 5 5600X prediction - $309 $215
  • AMD Ryzen 7 5800X prediction - $449 $330
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5900X prediction - $570 $385
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5950X prediction - $635

We've seen many of both the latest Intel Core and AMD Ryzen processors reach their historic lowest prices throughout 2022, so it stands to reason that Prime Day PC deals could match, or even exceed, these aggressive rates. With the 12th gen Intel CPUs being the newer of the two, it's far more likely that the deepest savings will be reserved for the Ryzen 5000 series, but we wouldn't be surprised to see the the likes of the Alder Lake i5 and i7 coming below the $250 and $325 figure respectively. Regardless of which corner you're in for your next chipset, Prime Day should offer an ample opportunity to invest in the heart of your machine at a great rate. 

Peripherals are an important part of any PC gaming setup, so ensure you've got the best gaming keyboard, best gaming mouse, and best gaming desk at the helm, too.
