01 Jul 2024

July already, huh. I suppose that means it’s time for the annual roundup of the best Prime Day PC gaming deals, where subscribers to Amazon’s premium Prime service can claim their very own super-special discounts on all kinds of hardware. Ideally just the good stuff, mind. Hence the list.

To be sure, Prime Day is one of the better times of the year to nab a PC upgrade, largely because it covers just about everything: graphics cards, CPUs, SSDs, the lot. Gaming laptops and Steam Deck accessories, including microSD cards, will be going cheap as well. The catch is usually how the real bargains are buried beneath piles of cheaply-made rubbish, but lucky for you prospective hardware shoppers, my employment contract says I’ve no choice but to take a shovel and dig out the very best deals on the kit that’s actually worth owning. All you need to do on your end is be a Prime member, or at the very least, disguise yourself as one with the 30-day free trial.

Yes, as always, the choicest Prime Day deals will only be available to free trailers or fully paid-up Prime members. You still have time to sign up before Prime Day 2024 actually kicks off, with it taking place across July 16th and 17th, though if that’s just one login too far then you still have options. First, simply keep reading this list – until Prime Day proper on the 16th, I’ll be keeping it stocked with early deals, which might not be as cheap as their eventual Prime versions but will be available to those without premium subscriptions.

Second, you can – in a hopefully short amount of time – check out our Anti-Prime Day deals guide, in which I’ll be tracking all the best PC hardware savings I can find from non-Amazon retailers. As has been the case for years, plenty of online stores will look to steal Jeffy B’s thunder around Prime Day, so you can still secure yourself some cut-price rig upgrades without paying a penny to the Big A. Look out for that, later this week.

Choose What You Want in Advance

Recommendations are recommendations, but you don’t have to take them as gospel, nor wait for some hardware editor’s approval if you already have a specific upgrade in mind. If anything, this could save you a bit of time (and effort) on the day – Prime Day is a major source of good deals, but it’s also liable to be packed with rubbish, and knowing exactly what to search for will save you having to dig through a mountain of unwanted offers.

One time-saving trick is to add your desired items to your basket before Prime Day begins. Then, once it’s underway, you don’t need to do any actual searching – just head back into the basket and see at a glance whether the things you want are on sale or not.
