Black Friday and Cyber Monday are long gone by now, but that doesn't mean that deals stop completely in their tracks as there's always okay deals here and there throughout the remainder of the holiday period based on past history. You obviously won't find anything too crazy, but you just never know, and on this page we'll keep listing the best PC hardware, accessory and system deals that we find during our day to day research here at BGC.
We only list deals on high-quality products, as when it comes to tech we typically recommend spending those few extra bucks on well-known brands for better reliability and support, instead of going for that alluring cheap no-name brand option that could be more trouble than its worth.
Plus, we only report on deals that actually are a deal, as it's easy to fall victim to hype as retailers sometimes shrewdly mark up the initial/before price to give the illusion of a great deal (when reality it's only a lukewarm deal at best, or not even a deal at worst).
In other words, we hold ourselves to certain standards here at BGC, and like all recommendations across our site, we'll only list deals that we would personally consider buying ourselves if we were in the market for that particular category.
Anyway, good luck and hope this may help somewhat on your hunt.
This RX 580 8GB is a genuinely solid deal at 160 bucks, a deal that's continued on from Black Friday. It's the lowest we've seen this card. Worth considering for a new $500 to $600 mid-range gaming PC build for buttery smooth 60FPS performance in 1080p on maxed settings in most games. The XFX Fatboy 590 is also discounted at $180 right now, which isn't too shabby and provides a bit faster performance.
The all-new Ryzen 5 3600 was $185 on Black Friday, but is still now $190 ($10 off). Not much however it's the latest 3rd gen and one of the best overall mid-range gaming CPUs you can buy right now, and a super-popular buy, so we weren't expecting it to be discounted at all during this time. A no-brainer CPU choice if you're building a new PC between $600 and $1200. Just make sure to get compatible motherboard with out-the-box support for it if you don't want to have to update the BIOS of a new motherboard yourself (we recommend pairing it with the great value MSI B450 Tomahawk Max).
Oh, and while the 3600 is the better overall bang for buck for gaming, the 3600X is also slightly discounted right now at $200 and worth considering for slighter faster performance - handy if you'll be streaming or doing a lot of multitasking. Though if you're just gaming, the 3600 is better value overall.
Samsung SSDs are the best overall for most builders IMHO, and are often included in our sample gaming PC builds, so finding them on special is always a nice bonus.
This good-quality, fast 1ms 4K monitor from Samsung is 50 dollars off at the moment. It doesn't have GSync (has FreeSync though) but that's a sacrifice you gotta make at this price. There's also a bunch of other Samsung monitors that are discounted right now and all check-out as good options to consider as gamers:
This good quality wireless adapter from reliable TP-Link (a good networking brand we often include in our recommendations) is currently only 35 bucks on Amazon. A good option if you need to add WiFi to your desktop and your motherboard doesn't have it as a built-in feature (most don't).
