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.

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.
NZXT's H510i is a gorgeous mid-tower PC case with plenty of RGB lighting with a pre-installed controller, cable management features, a shroud to hide away your beastly PSU, and more.
The Corsair iCUE 220T RGB is an interesting chassis with an all-metal design, including the steel front grill. This case is all about airflow, allowing you to pack it full of enthusiast-grade components without issue.
This MUSETEX case is a unique chassis in that it has glass on the side and front, as well as plenty of RGB fans to cool everything down inside. There's even a remote control you can use to quickly alter the lighting effects.
If you'd prefer a unique chassis to build your PC inside, look no further than the darkFlash Phantom. It's tall, allowing for up to four 120mm fans to be installed on the front, as well as a further two on the rear, and has plenty of space for AIO coolers.
The Thermaltake Tower 900 is like the darkFlash Phantom, but with everything cranked up to 11. You can install some truly breathtaking PC builds inside this case, allowing for dual-custom water-cooling loops, as well as plenty of space for all your radiators and components.
This is one sleek-looking PC case with some subtle lighting effects in the form of a rear fan and front-panel strips. It's a roomy case with good airflow, a tempered glass side window, plenty of expansion slots, radiator support, and even support for vertical GPU mounting.
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.
This motherboard has an LGA 1200 socket for 10th Gen Intel processors, comes with a 14-stage power delivery design, 2.5Gb LAN, Thunderbolt 3, dual M.2 slots, and a striking design that'll fit in most PC builds.
The AORUS X570 Elite from GIGABYTE comes rocking an X570 socket for the latest Ryzen processors, as well as PCIe 4.0, M.2 slots, 14 phase power delivery design, and all the RGB support you'll need.
The B550 chipset may not be as fancy as the X570 for 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.
The Z390 may be the last-gen chipset for 8th and 9th Gen Intel processors, but you can find some good deals here. If you don't mind using an older Intel processor, which too can be found at steep discounts right now, the Z390-A PRO from MSI is a solid motherboard.
This small micro-ATX board comes with support for 10th Gen processors, a direct 11+1 phase power delivery design, VRM cooling, M.2 slot, and everything else you need to make a capable Intel PC.
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.
The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 may not be the latest CPU from AMD, but it offers amazing value at this price. It's a six-core processor with 12 threads, making it ideal for gaming and high workloads. It'll also work with X570 motherboards too.
Like the AMD Ryzen 5 2600, the Ryzen 7 2700 is from the previous generation. This is a similar processor in that is also supports X570 if you'd want to upgrade later, but comes with a further two cores for eight in total with 16 threads.
The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is a monster of a CPU. It has 12 cores and 24 threads, making it perfect for gaming and even some video editing. It'll work with the latest X570 and B550 motherboards, as well as some existing gen boards too.
Intel's Core i7-9700K may be the previous generation predecessor to the current i7-10700K, but it is still a worthy CPU for your PC. Eight cores with hyperthreading make this a beastly processor with clock speeds of up to 4.9GHz.
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.
The RTX 2060 is a solid card for 1080p or 1440p gaming, and right now you can get a couple of rebates at Newegg. There's a $15 rebate card that brings the price down to $325, then another $40 off with a promo code brings the total down to $285.
The RX 5500 XT is a solid mid-tier graphics card for 1440p gaming, allowing you to take full advantage of AMD's rDNA tech and 8GB of RAM. The two fan setup will keep the card running cool and quiet when you're not running Crysis to see how quickly you can destroy your rig.
The RTX 2060 is a great mid-tier GPU at this price. You can easily get away with 1440p gaming with the latest PC titles. It even supports ray-tracing though you won't want to try and do it on this GPU due to its lack of power compared to premium cards.
The RX 5500 XT isn't anything to write home about, but the GPU is still more than capable of handling the latest PC games at 1080p with visual settings configured to high. If you're wanting to put together a budget-friendly PC build, this GPU is a solid choice.
This is the same GPU as the ASUS pick, so you're good to go with 1440p gaming. The best part is this card is a little more affordable, making it an even more enticing deal.
The RX 5600 XT is a monster of a mid-tier GPU from AMD. It's built for 1440p PC gaming and while it doesn't rock fancy features like ray-tracing, it handles everything else admirably, especially at this price.
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.
Corsair makes some of the best RAM module kits around and the Vengeance RGB Pro is brilliant. This 16GB kit offers you a metallic RAM solution with addressable RGB lighting. Performance is solid too at 3200MHz and latency of C16.
If you feel like you need more than 16GB, how does 32GB sound? This kit is identical to the above Corsair offering but with double the amount of space for data. If you want more of a "sleeper RAM" look for your PC, this is a solid choice.
Team's 64GB kit is a little overkill for most PC builds, but if your budget can stretch to accommodate these speedy modules, it'll be more than worth the discounted price.
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.
Kingston's A400 range of SATA SSDs is great for increasing the capacity of your PC or replacing a HDD inside your laptop. This 240GB drive is on sale and rather affordable for storing some games and documents.
Fancy the cheapest SSD around for your OS install? PNY has the CS900, which performs well when used as an OS drive or for specific software and games.
Samsung 970 EVO is the company's slightly more premium series of SSDs compared to the 860. This 500GB option is great for storing large amounts of data and access it at lightning-fast speeds. This is because this SSD is an NVMe drive, requiring an M.2 slot.
If you did want a mechanical hard drive with a spinning disk and motor to boot, Seagate is where you should go with the excellent BarraCuda range of HDDs. This 2TB option offers far more GB of space per dollar compared to our SSD recommendations above.
Western Digital's Blue series of SATA SSDs are perfect for storing games and data, thanks to their small size, no noise, no vibration, and low power draw. The 2TB version is $176.
These Blue SSDs from Western Digital are similar to other PCIe 3 drives in that you'll be able to enjoy transfer speeds of up to 530MB/s, so don't mistake these for NVMe drives, but they're still faster than mechanical hard drives.
These are rapid fast SSDs that really should be used in an M.2 slot with full access to the CPU to enjoy up to 3,470 MB/s transfer speeds. If you need a speedy drive for your Windows OS install, these are your new best friends.
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.
Thermaltake's Smart 500W PSU is a budget-friendly power supply with an efficiency rating of 80 Plus White. This means it's not quite as efficient as more expensive PSUs on the market, but it will supply stable, reliable power to all your components.
