The second day of Amazon Prime Day (opens in a new tab) gaming PC deals are here and amazingly there are still a number of great machines available at discounted prices. We probably won’t see many more added here, so if one is sitting in your cart right now, we suggest hitting buy before the deals disappear for the summer.
However, consider that the next wave of AMD, Intel, and Nvidia CPUs and GPUs is on the horizon, which means retailers are scrambling to sell off gaming PCs with older components before they’re eclipsed. Don’t get me wrong, the components will stay relevant for a while, you just have to come to terms with the fact that you are a generation behind. For the price some of these are going for, you can probably put that fact behind you, rather than splash out on the next generation immediately, right?
First is the GPU shortage finally decreases. While we’re not quite in MSRP territory, many graphics cards are damn close. This means that system builders should be able to lower prices even more. Not just $100 here and there, but real significant savings.
The second factor is the upcoming next generation of graphics cards. With those landing before the year is out, dealers are scrambling to get the current generation machines out the door. Pre-built machines with high-end GPUs such as RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti, Radeon RX 6900XT, etc. will most likely get discounts, as they will be replaced first. The next-gen offering looks to be a significant performance boost over the current standard, so expect higher-end machines to boast bigger savings.
Of course, the GPU makes up a large part of a gaming system’s prowess, but it’s not the only component that fuels the sales furnace. New CPUs from AMD are also coming towards the end of the year, and there is plenty of Intel’s 11th generation CPU stock out there. On top of that, SSD prices continue to fall, and RAM has never been cheaper. Expect lots of deals, in fact.
We’re still sending out our best scouting bots to find the best deals, and updating this page with the gaming PCs that appeal to us. So keep checking back to see what we’ve uncovered.

When does Amazon Prime Day 2022 end?
The official answer is that Prime Day 2022 ends at 11.59pm on Wednesday 13 July. But the more complicated answer is that it depends on your time zone. In the United States, Amazon Prime Day ends at 11:59 PM PDT Wednesday July 13thbut it actually is 2:59 a.m. EDT Thursday, July 14.
In the UK, there is a more reasonable cut-off at 23.59 BST Wednesday 13 July.
But that’s all for Amazon’s own specific deals, and we expect to see deals from the likes of Newegg and Best Buy stick around a bit longer.
