Amazon's Prime Day sales have you covered if you've had your eye on a cheap gaming PC for less. In the closing hours of the Prime Day PC deals, there are still many affordable entry-level rigs worth your time if you've wanted a machine that won't break the bank today. 

The cheapest gaming PC deal that we've found in the Prime Day sales so far is the HP Pavilion, complete with an i5 CPU and a GTX 1650 for just $579.99 (was $730). While far from a powerhouse, this is one of the most affordable entry-level machines we've seen running this hardware to date, beating the previous historic lowest ever price by a full $100. 

If you're interested in ray tracing and DLSS then these gaming PC deals have you covered here as well. One of the best choices we were able to highlight include the CyberPowerPC Xtreme VR, armed with an 11th Gen i5 processor and an RTX 2060, for just $899.99 (was $1,015). Despite being from the previous Turing generation, you're actually getting better pound-for-pound performance overall when compared to the latest budget Ampere video card for a very aggressive rate. 

For more from the PC platform in Amazon's two-day sales event, we're also rounding up all the latest and greatest Prime Day gaming laptop deals with offers on everything from the wallet-friendly to the bleeding edge being covered.
