With Amazon Prime Early Access (opens in a new tab) in full swing—or Prime Day II as many have called it—ungodly numbers of high-end gaming PCs are being offered. Just as we’ve come to expect with the RTX 40 series and Intel Arc GPU launches happening this month, along with AMD’s RDNA 3 on the horizon, we’re seeing retailers from across the web with ridiculous deals on high-end gaming machines.
The best deals for gaming PCs (opens in a new tab) we have compared in hub, and that will be updated as the deals ebb. But for now, I had to point out some of the best slot machines we see right now because there are so many that I’m literally dizzy.
Gaming PCs like the ones Skytech puts out are just the kind of example that makes me happy to be a PC gamer right now. The Skytech Shiva with RTX 3080 costs $700 less than usual (opens in a new tab). And while this one, like many we see, does come with an older CPU, there’s no reason you can’t destroy some good gaming sessions on them.
If you play CPU-intensive games like Metro Exodus for example, you should still expect to pay a bit more for a gaming PC with a current-gen CPU. However, many of the machines we see going on sale over Prime Early Access will be relevant for some time.
Some even come with huge customizations to sweeten the deal as well, especially at the top end. Pick up the CUK MPG Velox going for $800 less than expected (opens in a new tab). Not only does it come with some of the most powerful components on the market right now, but it also has more storage than I could reasonably hope to fill.
In addition, all these pre-built machines will save you a lot of time and effort in building your own gaming PC. So, without further ado, here are some of the best premium gaming PC deals we’ve spotted so far.
