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 build an entirely new rig from scratch, now's as 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.

Choosing the right PC components doesn't just depend on the price. For motherboards, you'll need to make sure they'll work with your CPU, likewise with a CPU deal to your existing motherboard. If you're building a new PC from scratch, you have a little more space to play with, allowing you to put together a few different build ideas.

As well as rounding up some of the best deals spotted today, we've also compiled a list of cases, motherboards, CPUs, GPUs, RAM, storage, and power supplies to help you get started on the right track.

Best Amazon Prime Day 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 Amazon Prime Day 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.

ASUS Prime Z590-P LGA | $160 $140 (opens in new tab)

The ASUS Prime Z590-P LGA may support 10th and 11th Gen Intel processors, but this will mean you can also save on the CPU if you're starting from scratch, or save in the process of upgrading your existing Intel PC.

ASUS TUF Gaming Z590-Plus WiFi | $205 $180 (opens in new tab)

The TUF range of Intel motherboards from ASUS is a solid foundation for a PC. If you're still using 10th or 11th Gen Intel processors (or found an Amazon deal on one), this is a solid place to start. The 14+2 power stage design also supports decent overclocking results.

(opens in new tab)

ASUS ROG Strix Z590-E Gaming WiFi | $280 $208 (opens in new tab)

The older ROG Strix Z590-E from ASUS is for 10th and 11th Gen Intel processors. If you're planning to stick with that generation and upgrade the motherboard or build a cheaper PC, this is a great value board with plenty of premium features.

Best Amazon Prime Day CPU deals

The CPU is what handles all the processing your operating system tasks the PC with. It's what determines whether 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.

Intel Core i5-12600KF | $312 $229 (opens in new tab)

I'm a huge fan of the Core i5-12600 series. It's what I use inside my main gaming rig (replacing an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X) and I don't see that changing anytime soon. It's a perfect mix of power and value.

(opens in new tab)

Intel Core i9-11900K | $390 $302 (opens in new tab)

If you're still using a 500-series motherboard, you can stick with it and upgrade the processor you're using. The Intel Core i9-11900K is one of the best processors from that generation and it's still a decent chip in 2022.

Intel Core i5-10600K | $263 $160 (opens in new tab)

Just like the Core i7-10700K, the Core i5-10600K is growing some grey hair, but it's still a great mid-range processor for gaming. I don't believe we've seen it priced this low either.

Best Amazon Prime Day 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. And be sure to have a look at our dedicated roundup of the best Prime Day graphics card deals for more options.

(opens in new tab)

PNY GeForce RTX 3060 Ti XLR8 | $720 $500 (opens in new tab)

Locating any GPU deal is going to be tricky. Prices are still above MSRP across the board, but there are some better prices on certain cards as demand winds down. The RTX 3060 Ti is a sweet spot for 1080p and 1440p gaming and this price isn't terrible. ($720 was ridiculous.)

(opens in new tab)

ZOTAC Gaming RTX 3060 Twin Edge OC | $550 $380 (opens in new tab)

The RTX 3060 is the best value GPU from NVIDIA for this generation. It supports solid 1080p and 1440p gaming performance without destroying your bank account. It's also pretty efficient and doesn't add too much to overall internal temperatures.

Best Amazon Prime Day 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 the maximum speed it can support. Most modern CPUs work well with 3200MHz DDR4 modules.

(opens in new tab)

Kingston Fury Beast 16GB DDR5-5200 | $145 $95 (opens in new tab)

(opens in new tab)

v-Color Skywalker Plus 64GB DDR4-4266 | $300 $190 (opens in new tab)

Best Amazon Prime Day storage deals

Need a speedy SSD to store all your games? This 2TB drive from Crucial is perfect for improving load times over HDDs. It's also more cost-effective than M.2 SSDs.

Best Amazon Prime Day 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.

(opens in new tab)

Corsair RM850 | $140 $117 (opens in new tab)
