PC components can usually be found at a discount throughout the year, but Amazon Prime Day, Black Friday, and other promotional events can see pricing drop considerably. If you’re wanting to upgrade your current PC with a new graphics card or to build an entirely new rig from scratch, now’s a good a time as any to browse around for some deals.
Whether you’re in the market for a new motherboard, some storage, or everything in between, we’ve rounded up some killer deals right here for you to consider. As always, it’s best to decide on what to upgrade inside your PC and what will be the best upgrade to go for.
Today’s Best PC Part Deals
As well as rounding up some of the best deals spotted today, we’ve also compiled a list for cases, motherboards, CPUs, GPUs, RAM, storage, and power supplies to help you get started on the right track.
Best case deals
In order to have a PC put together, you’ll need a chassis to install all the components inside. Depending on what motherboard you have already or plan on buying, the mid-tower size is best suited for most PC builds. ITX cases require Mini-TIX motherboards, which are usually more expensive, while full-tower covers your large behemoth cases.
Best Motherboard deals
The motherboard is the heart of your PC, connecting everything together. This is one of the most important parts of the PC building puzzle and it’s easy to mess things up if you choose the wrong one. If you already have a CPU at the ready, choose a motherboard that supports it. If not, go with whichever supports the CPU you plan on purchasing. To help, we rounded up some of the cheapest Prime Day motherboard deals.
Best CPU deals
The CPU is what handles all the processing your operating system tasks the PC with. It’s what determines if you’ll be able to run games and more demanding software smoothly. The older or less capable the CPU, the more performance restrictions will be put on your PC. It’s best to spend as much as you can here to save upgrading sooner rather than later.
Best GPU deals
The GPU is the most important component of PC gaming. Without one, you’re left with whatever comes with the CPU — and not every CPU comes with integrated graphics processing. Like the CPU, spend what you can here to make sure you have the best available to your budget.
Best RAM deals
RAM is what’s used by the system to store data for quicker access. Even the fastest SSDs aren’t as speedy as RAM modules, which are positioned right next to the CPU and have amazing levels of bandwidth. 8GB is recommended as the minimum for Windows 10 and Linux, though we’d recommend 16GB if you plan to play games. Your CPU will have a maximum speed it can support. Most modern CPUs work well with 3200MHz DDR4 modules.
Best Storage deals
Whether you need a mechanical spinning hard drive for impressive capacity or an SSD for loading your favorite games and the OS, we’ve got you covered here with a roundup of the best storage deals around. M.2 NVMe SSDs require specific slots on your motherboard, so be sure to check your board manual before buying.
Best PSU deals
The power supply unit (or PSU for short) is the most important part of the PC. It’s what delivers stable power to all your components, converting alternating current (AC) to regulated direct current (DC) in the process. If you buy a cheap PSU from an unknown brand, you run the risk of damaging your components.
