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 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 it'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 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.
Thermaltake S100 | 30% off at Amazon
This slim and compact case from Thermaltake has everything you need for budget-friendly PC builds. The sleek design and tempered glass panel offer a premium look and this thing looks far more expensive than it really is, especially on Prime Day. You've got the usual features like dust filters, PSU shroud, HDD drive tray, support for motherboards up to Micro ATX, and space for a 280mm rad upfront or at the top.
Cooler Master MasterBox NR600P (Black) | 39% off at Amazon
Mesh up your life with the NR600P from Cooler Master. This is one special chassis, supporting dual CPU motherboards, hot-swappable drive bays, and even a card reader upfront. The pre-installed dual 140mm intake fans on the front will pull in plenty of air to cool everything inside, but you can go all-out with water cooling if you'd prefer.
Cooler Master MasterBox TD500 (White) | 20% off at Amazon
Don't want the NR600P in black? There's always the white TD500 right here, which has a similar mesh intake, but has space for three 120mm fans to really ramp up the cool air intake. The massive side window is glorious for showing off all your case internals, which supports up to a full-size ATX motherboard.
Cooler Master NR200P (Black) | 20% off at Amazon
Want to build small? Good choice! Compact PC builds can be as powerful as larger systems but can cost a little more thanks to needing to choose specific parts. Luckily, Cooler Master's NR200P SFF chassis is on sale for Prime Day and there's plenty to like about this case. It even has support for custom water cooling loops.
Cooler Master NR200P (White) | 20% off at Amazon
With space for up to seven fans (yes, seven!) inside the Cooler Master NR200P, you've got more than enough cooling headroom for powerful PC builds. If you want to go down the custom route, Cooler Master even provides a pump installation bracket for custom loops. It's a crazy good chassis for a capable compact PC build.
Cooler Master MasterBox Pro 5 ARGB | 23% off at Amazon
The Cooler Master MasterBox Pro 5 ARGB is all about style. The impressive-looking glass panel upfront sits just in front of the three pre-installed RGB fans, but there's also a secondary panel on the side so everyone can gaze inside your build. Up to six 120mm fans can be installed in total and you can easily fit a 360mm radiator inside for strong cooling.
Cooler Master NR200 (Black) | 23% off at Amazon
The NR200 from Cooler Master is the same as the NR200P, but without the choice of a tempered glass panel. It's designed as more of a sleeper PC with a sleek finish that can contain far more firepower than the external chassis may lead you to believe. You'll be able to enjoy the same number of fan mounts, water cooling support, and other highlight features.
Cooler Master NR200 (White) | 23% off at Amazon
White is the new black for PC cases and the NR200 is no different. You can find both models on sale for Prime Day, offering the choice between a bright or dark finish. So long as you don't mind using ITX and SFX parts, you'll be able to create a very capable gaming PC inside a chassis that's barely larger than a console.
Thermaltake Tower 900 | $19 off at Amazon
There's a lot to love about the Thermaltake Tower 900. It's expensive, huge, heavy, and cumbersome, but this also provides ample space inside for even the most ridiculous enthusiast PC builds. Want to go all-out with a multi-GPU and CPU water-cooled PC? That's entirely possible with this behemoth.
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.
Gigabyte B550 AORUS Elite | $170 at Amazon
The B550 chipset may not be as fancy as the X570 for the latest Ryzen processors, but it'll support the same CPUs and provide a stable platform for a solid PC build. This Gigabyte board comes rocking a 14 phase power delivery design, enlarged heatsinks for all the important components, and dual M.2 slots.
ASUS Prime A520M-K | 24% off at Amazon
This motherboard doesn't have all the bells and whistles you'd find on more expensive offerings, but it's also at a fraction of the price. With support for Ryzen 3000 and 5000 processors, this is about as affordable as you can get for a current chipset.
ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming | $135 at Amazon
The ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming is a serious motherboard for AMD PC builds. It has everything you need (and then some) for a very powerful PC, including PCIe 4.0 support for rapid-fast SSD storage.
Best 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.
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X | 19% off at Amazon
The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X is a brilliant processor at this discounted price. Sporting eight physical cores and 16 processing threads, it's more than a match for even the latest and most demanding PC games. The best part? AMD bundles a really good CPU cooler with the 3700X, so you're ready to go from the get-go, and it supports PCIe 4.0.
Intel Core i5-10600K | 35% off at Amazon
Intel's Core i7-10600K may be from a previous generation, but it's still worth considering if you don't need the best performance available from Intel. It's a great little chip for gaming and would work just fine with our Intel motherboards highlighted above. Six cores with hyperthreading make this a beastly processor with clock speeds of up to 4.8GHz.
Intel Intel Core i9-9900KF | 14% off at Amazon
This 8-core processor has 16 threads in total and can hit a maximum clock speed of 5.00GHz. The 16MB cache and support for Intel 300 series chipsets make this Core i9 a good upgrade for those on older Intel motherboards. If you're still using a 9th Gen Core i5 or i7 and need a little bit more performance, look no further than this chip.
Intel Core i7-9700 | 39% off at Amazon
Should you not be interested in Intel's 10th or 11th Gen collection of processors or wish to save a little on choosing older parts, the Intel Core i7-9700 is a brilliant processor for a gaming PC. It has 8 cores, 16 threads, and can hit speeds of up to 4.7GHz. You will need to pair this processor up with an Intel 300 series motherboard.
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. And be sure to have a look at our dedicated roundup of the best Prime Day graphics card deals for more options.
EVGA B Stock graphics cardsTop pick
There aren't always graphics cards available on EVGA's B-Stock page, but when there are they offer some of the best value around. B-Stock is EVGA's way of saying "Refurbished," so this section features cards that have cosmetic damage or have been used before. They usually come with a 90-day warranty instead of a full warranty. Plus, while already being offered at reduced cost they sometimes come with even better deals.
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 the maximum speed it can support. Most modern CPUs work well with 3200MHz DDR4 modules.
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB | $83 at Newegg
The Crucial Vengeance LPX series of RAM is about as good as you can get for value desktop memory. This 16GB kit (formed of two 8GB modules) is rated at 3,200MHz and has a speed score of CL16. Not bad for the price. This kit will work well with modern Intel or AMD processors.
G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB | $15 off at Newegg
G.SKILL makes some excellent RAM kits and the Ripjaws V series is affordable, yet compelling for gaming PC builds. Whether you're going AMD Ryzen or Intel Core for the processor, you'll have a great time with this 32GB RAM kit, thanks to the 3200MHz clock speed and CL16 CAS latency rating.
Crucial Ballistix 16GB | $18 off at Amazon
Crucial's Ballistix series is great for boosting the performance of your PC, especially when it's overclocked to 3600MHz. 16GB of it is more than enough for gaming, productivity, and everything else in between.
v-Color Prism Pro RGB 32GB (2x 16GB kits) | $28 off at Amazon
v-Color's Prism Pro RGB RAM bundle consists of two 16GB kits, bringing the total capacity up to 32GB. This is a pretty good figure, especially when you take into account the discounted price. It's capable of hitting speeds of 4133MHz (at 1.35v) and has a CAS latency rating of CL 19 (19-24-24-44).
Best storage deals
Whether you need a mechanical spinning hard drive for impressive capacity or a solid-state drive (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.
Samsung 980 PRO 500GB PCIe NVMe Gen4 internal SSD | 33% off at Amazon
You want 500 gigabytes of storage from a reputable brand like Samsung, but you're not a fan of the usual price that entails. We get that. That's why we're sharing this deal, which knocks 33% of the price tag off so you can get a Samsung SSD for under $100.
Samsung's 980 PRO 2TB PCIe NVMe Gen4 internal SSD | 27% off at Amazon
Maybe 500GB is too small for your needs and you require a mega-sized 2 terabytes to hold all your files. Here's the good news: Samsung's willing to give you those terabytes at a steep discount, as long as you buy during Prime Day.
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.
Corsair CX650F RGB | 21% off at Amazon
80 PLUS Bronze certification makes this PSU up to 88% efficient while in operation, generating less heat and reducing overall energy costs. Corsair makes some killer power supplies and the CX650F with its smooth fan curve is a solid addition to any PC. There's even smart RGB lighting, should you want such a feature on your PSU.
EVGA 610 BP | 45% off at Amazon
This is a super-affordable PSU, but it comes from the reputable brand EVGA. Usually, you'd find 80 PLUS White or no certification at this price point, but EVGA managed to work in 80 PLUS Bronze with up to 85% efficiency. The single 12V rail and active power factor correction ensure the PSU supplies stable, reliable power to the PC.
