Best Black Friday PC gaming deals 2022: only the best deals worth your money

Black Friday deals

These are all the Black Friday deals still live going into the weekend, but we're now switching focus to what's coming up with the Cyber Monday PC gaming deals (opens in new tab) and that's where all the latest and greatest discounts will now be curated.

Whether you're looking for a loved one or to treat yourself, you don't want to waste your money on a trash product or an awful 'deal'. That's why we'll be heavily curating the deals on this page to make sure you can see where your hard-earned money should go.

Here at PC Gamer we spend our working week testing the latest products to see if they're worthy of our rigs. And the ones we think worthwhile, we tell you about. That's why we do it: you shouldn't have to waste a penny on poorly-made products. 

And, at a time with an increased focus on the cost of living across the world, it makes sense to save any large purchase for an event such as Black Friday, where every retailer in every corner of the globe will be cutting prices to tempt you into spending your money with them. Whether you're desperate for an air fryer, want to upgrade your PC setup, or go all-in on a whole new machine, the Black Friday sales event is a great time to bag a bargain.

There are simply too many deals on the internet nowadays to sift through them yourself, that's our job. But don't worry, we're not going to start peddling air fryers, or mattresses, or anything that doesn't have anything to do with PC gaming. That's what we know, and we're making sure to channel our years of expertise into making sure you know what the best deals are and don't have to go trawling though pages of not-actually-deals on Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg or elsewhere.

Today's top Black Friday deals

Acer Nitro 5 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $798 (opens in new tab)

Acer Nitro 5 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $798 $649 at Walmart (save $149) (opens in new tab)
Think this might just be the cheapest RTX 3060-based gaming laptop we've found this Black Friday. For this much cash you're usually looking at a GTX 1650 Ti based machine, at best. But here, you get a genuine 1080p gaming GPU, and a quality AMD Ryzen CPU, too. The 8GB of RAM is a bit weak for productivity, but the 144Hz screen and 512GB SSD go some way to make up for that slight shortfall.

Oculus Quest 2 128GB (opens in new tab)

Meta Quest 2 | Two controllers | Beat Saber + Resident Evil 4 included | 128GB storage | $399.99 $349.99 at Amazon (save $50) (opens in new tab)
We don't love the Meta Quest 2's $100 price bump, but we do love the headset itself. It's an all-round excellent device that works both standalone and as a great PC VR unit. With the two included games it's almost like the price hike never happened, right? Well, only if you wanted Beat Saber and Resi 4 in the first place.

Gigabyte Aorus 5 SE4 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,299.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte Aorus 5 SE4 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,299.99 $1,149.99 at Newegg (save $150) (opens in new tab)
A new 12th Gen Intel CPU combined with a powerful 130W RTX 3070 for $1,150 is a solid offering. That's especially true since this one's paired with a fantastically speedy 360Hz panel. There's plenty of RAM for your games and the chassis is attractive too.

Acer Nitro XZ342CK | 34-inch | 3440 x 1440 | VA | 144Hz | $449.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer Nitro XZ342CK | 34-inch | 3440 x 1440 | VA | 144Hz | $449.99 $349.99 at Amazon (save $100) (opens in new tab)
4K gaming monitors aren't necessarily super expensive anymore, but the GPUs that will really allow you to game in 4K at acceptable frame rates still are. For our money, if you want something more expansive than a 1440p panel you need an ultrawide. This VA panel from Acer has the ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio and a high refresh rate to boot. It's also never been cheaper than today.

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | AMD RX 6800S | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS | 14-inch | 1600p | 120Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,899.99 (opens in new tab)

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | AMD RX 6800S | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS | 14-inch | 1600p | 120Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,899.99 $1,399.99 at Best Buy (save $500) (opens in new tab)
Ah man, I am sorely tempted, because the G14 is one of the loveliest gaming laptops around. And that's from someone hopelessly in love with the Razer Blade 14. The combination of top-end Ryzen mobile CPU and performance Radeon GPU is impressive. That RX 6800S is only a shade behind the RTX 3070 in notebook form, and the rest of the spec rocks, too, especially that 120Hz 2560 x 1600 resolution screen. And it's the Moonlight White version as well. Mmmm.

MSI Mech RX 6750 XT | 12GB | 2,560 shaders | 2,618MHz | $549.99 (opens in new tab)

MSI Mech RX 6750 XT | 12GB | 2,560 shaders | 2,618MHz | $549.99 $369.99 at Newegg (save $180 after rebate) (opens in new tab)
We wouldn't normally be recommending the RX 6750 XT, after all it was the only RX 6x50 card that didn't make a lick of sense. It was only a slightly faster version of the RX 6700 XT but for a chunk more cash. This one, however, is a slightly faster version for a chunk less cash. And if you want a frame of reference from the last gen, it performs at a similar level to the RTX 2080 Ti. A former $1,200 GPU.

HP Pavilion | AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT | AMD Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD | $1,239.99 (opens in new tab)

HP Pavilion | AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT | AMD Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD | $1,239.99 $799.99 at Amazon (save $440) (opens in new tab)
A pretty darn relevant CPU/GPU combo here, considering the price. The Ryzen 7 has some nifty integrated graphics, too, though you won't need them with that GPU. Sadly, it doesn't support PCIe 4.0 meaning your SSD speeds are limited, but you're on DDR4 RAM at least. It's still got some upgrade potential, thanks to AMD's AM4 socket.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Gaming 5i | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $899.99 (opens in new tab)

Lenovo IdeaCentre Gaming 5i | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $899.99 $849.99 at Best Buy (save $50) (opens in new tab)
This is another OEM-style PC, which means it sacrifices the gamer aesthetic and some of the case standards we've become accustomed to. It's not so bad, however, as the actual specifications on this machine, for $849, are enough to win some favour. A really solid spec for 1080p gaming, it's the Intel Core i7 12700 that will make a huge difference if you hope to use this machine for streaming or video editing, too. 

MSI Trident 3 (opens in new tab)

iBUYPOWER TraceMR | Nvidia RTX 3080 | Intel Core i7 12700KF | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $1,849.99 $1,499.99 at BestBuy (save $350) (opens in new tab)
It wasn't long ago that an RTX 3080 alone would have cost you more than this entire PC. Now you can have the whole thing complete with a punchy Intel Core i7-12700KF processor, 16GB and a decent 1TB NVMe SSD. The motherboard is a proper Z690 item and they're even throwing in an RGB keyboard and mouse. It's a very nice package for the money.

Discord Nitro | 1 month | $9.99 (opens in new tab)

Discord Nitro | 1 month | $9.99 Free with 1-month purchase (opens in new tab)
With expanded emoji options, better streaming, and other minor benefits, Discord's premium subscription used to be a hard sell for anything other than the app's most hardcore users. After the recent addition of in-app games with the new Activities button, you might want to give it a real shot.

It's a stretch to call this one a gaming PC, if I'm being totally honest, but hear me out. There are some great Black Friday graphics card deals (opens in new tab) out there already, and the rest of this rig is a great platform to build a gaming machine. All you need is a GPU. Pick an RX 6650 XT on offer (opens in new tab) and you'll have a full rig for just $770.

HP Pavilion | AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT | AMD Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD | $1,239.99 (opens in new tab)

ABS Master Gaming PC| AMD RX 6600 XT | AMD Ryzen 5 5600 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,199.99 $899.99 at Newegg (save $400) (opens in new tab)
This PC is a fairly straightforward deal, and not going to lie you could build something like this yourself relatively easily and cheaply. However, if you're buying for someone else this holiday season and want the whole package, this is a great 1080p gaming machine. The RAM is not only dual-channel, it's also DDR4-3200 which is always much appreciated. You also might want to see about bagging an SSD deal (opens in new tab) to bump up that storage capacity. 

Yeyian Katana X10 | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | Intel Core i5 11400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,399.99 (opens in new tab)

OK, here's one heck of a deal for an RTX 3060 Ti rig, fully $100 cheaper than the ABS Master PC below. Specs mirror the ABS rig, including that seductive RTX 3060 Ti GPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The main difference is the 11th Gen rather than 12th Gen Intel CPU. But that's a fairly minor detail and not one you'd feel in game. $849 for a 3060 Ti rig remains one heck of a deal. 

Asus ROG Strix G10 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Core i5 11400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,129.99 (opens in new tab)

Asus ROG Strix G10 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Core i5 11400F | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,129.99 $909.98 at Amazon (save $220.01) (opens in new tab)
Granted, you don't get a massive amount of storage space with this one, but at least you get a great CPU/GPU combo for the price. 16GB of RAM should be more than enough for gaming, and with a bit of a discount, you could update your SSD later on down the line.

iBuyPower SlateMESH | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700F | 500GB SSD | 1TB HDD | $1,249.99 (opens in new tab)

If you're looking for a little more processing power and don't mind paying a little more for it, this machine offers Intel's excellent Alder Lake architecture for just that. It's still an RTX 3060, and it's not the cheapest PC with one of those, but with decent storage options and 16GB of RAM (2x 8GB) it is a great all-rounder.

Dell XPS | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | Intel Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD | (opens in new tab)

Dell XPS | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | Intel Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $1,649.99 $1,149.99 at Dell (save $500) (opens in new tab)
Packing some tasty DDR5 RAM, this one comes with a great CPU/GPU combo that wont have trouble at 1440p. The only real let down is the addition of a hard drive. You can always add more SATA or NVMe SSD storage at a later date, otherwise its still a great machine... if you don't mind long load times.

iBuyPower TraceMR Gaming Desktop | Nvidia RTX 3070 | Intel i7 12700F | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD|  $1,449.99 (opens in new tab)

This iBuyPower gaming PC comes with a solid amount of RAM, an Intel i7 12700F, an Nvidia RTX 3070, and 1TB of NVMe SSD storage. All of this should satisfy a ton of games right now. This deal is a nice package for a little over $1,000 and one of the better ones you can pick up right now.

This all AMD offering from HP will put you in a great position for 1440p gaming. It's packing a Ryzen 5000-series processor, meaning you won't be able to swap to Zen 4 so easily, but you won't necessarily need to for a while. Not only do you get a good chunk of storage, you also get 16GB DDR4-3200 which is not bad to top off a great core spec.

A very current machine here that'll see you right at 1080p and even 1440p. That's a great last Gen Intel CPU, and the RTX 3070 has a lot going for it too. 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM isn't too bad, either and it's dual channel which is always appreciated. Top that with a full 1TB of NVMe storage and you're onto a winner.

Knocking $700 off the price of this rig has made superbly tempting. It may not have the most current CPU but that RTX 3080, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB SSD makes it a gaming PC which will run happily out of the box without any issues. A little more RAM wouldn't have gone amiss for the price, but it'll still ace most games you throw at it.

It's worth remembering just what a fantastic graphics card the RX 6800 XT is. It's at the same level as the RTX 3080 outside of ray tracing, and generally comes in a lot cheaper. That means this Alienware machine is less expensive than an equivalent Nvidia-powered version, and still comes with 16GB RAM. That 512GB SSD is a bit miserly though, even if it comes with some slow data storage as a backup.

The glorious-looking Hyte Y60 is the clothing around this high-powered RTX 4080-based machine. Alongside the latest Nvidia card is the most powerful gaming CPU around today in Intel's Raptor Lake Core i9, and 32GB of DDR5-6000 memory. That 1TB SSD is a full PCIe 4.0 option, too, so it's a proper speedy li'l drive. There's also a 1,000W PSU with a 16-pin power connector, so hopefully less chance of an adapter melting your rig...

If you don't want a hulking gaming laptop, let me introduce the Zephyrus 14: a 14-incher that can game without busting your bank balance or your shoulder when lugging it around. No-nonsense specs in a delightful package. That $500 saving doesn't hurt either.

Acer Predator Helios 300 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 512GB SSD | $1,499.99 (opens in new tab)

There are plenty of RTX 3060 gaming laptops for $999, but what sets the Helios 300 apart is that traditional gaming chassis ensures you've got plenty of airflow to keep the 130W RTX 3060 running harder for longer. The rest of the spec is tasty at this price tag too.

A new 12th Gen Intel CPU combined with a powerful 130W RTX 3070 for $1,150 is a solid offering. That's especially true since this one's paired with a fantastically speedy 360Hz panel. There's plenty of RAM for your games and the chassis is attractive too.

Dell G15 Gaming Laptop | Nvidia RTX 3070 | AMD Ryzen 7 6800H | 15.6-inch | 165Hz | 1080p | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,599 (opens in new tab)

Here's a very well-rounded gaming laptop worth the money asked for it. The RTX 3070 is a great mobile gaming GPU with the power to make the most of the G15's 165Hz screen. Beyond that, however, you have AMD's excellent Ryzen 7 6800H. That's a chip that's mighty for gaming and multitasking, so this laptop is really well-suited to all sorts of use cases.

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | AMD RX 6800S | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS | 14-inch | 1600p | 120Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,899.99 (opens in new tab)

Ah man, I am sorely tempted, because the G14 is one of the loveliest gaming laptops around. And that's from someone hopelessly in love with the Razer Blade 14. The combination of top-end Ryzen mobile CPU and performance Radeon GPU is impressive. That RX 6800S is only a shade behind the RTX 3070 in notebook form, and the rest of the spec rocks, too, especially that 120Hz 2560 x 1600 resolution screen. And it's the Moonlight White version as well. Mmmm.

Legion 5 Gen 7 | Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti | AMD Ryzen 7 6800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | $2,199.99 (opens in new tab)

The mobile take on the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is a beastly GPU that'll chomp through games, especially at this laptop's 1080p native resolution. You'll stand a good chance of hitting that 165Hz refresh rate at the very least. You also get a powerful AMD CPU, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and a healthy 1TB NVMe SSD. There are a bunch of ecoupons Lenovo has in place that you can add to the basket, too: BLACKFRIDAYGAME and HOLIDAYSURPRISE. That's how you get the extra discount down to $1,450.

This deal isn't as hot as it was early Friday, but it's still a good price. For the cost of some RTX 3060 laptops, you can net an RTX 3070 Ti, a high-end up-to-date Intel CPU, plenty of RAM and storage, and all packed into a chassis that we've been fans of for a long time. It's billed as more of a creator laptop, as an Nvidia Studio laptop, and that's what we've always used these laptops for on-team. Hence the 4K resolution. But you could still game at high-res on this machine with the spec it delivers.

It's an old code, sir, but it checks out. That's still an RTX 3080 GPU in there, even if it's plugged into an 11th Gen Intel CPU it'll still game like a hero. The rest of the spec is pretty decent, too, and means you'll have an RTX 3080-based system for less than an RTX 3070 Ti.

An immense component combo here, one that's sure to smash anything you throw at it, especially at its native 1080p resolution. It's not the cheapest we've seen it, but you may even be able to make the most of that speedy 300Hz refresh rate screen with gear like that under the hood.

If you're not bothered about gaming and simply need a laptop for work, then this Dell machine is a good place to start. The Tiger Lake Core i5 may be getting on a bit now, but it's still capable enough. The RAM and SSD aren't much to get excited about, but for $400 it's acceptable for a school machine with a decent size screen.

The Dell XPS 13 is one of the best office notebooks around. I've been in love with the design since I first got my hands on one, and they're outstanding devices. This machine comes with a healthy complement of DDR5 memory and a relatively capacious SSD, too. The CPU only has a pair of Performance Cores, but with a further eight Efficient Alder Lake cores there's a lot of multithreaded performance baked inside that slim chassis.

Atop a great entry-level hardware spec, you get a lovely OLED panel, though sadly you're locked at 60Hz if you're looking to get some gaming underway. You'd have to turn the settings down to get over 60 fps anyway, and that doesn't make it bad for gaming, just not great for super competitive games. Productivity tasks shouldn't be an issue, though, and this is the cheapest it's ever been.

Black Friday graphics card deals

ASRock Radeon RX 6600 | 8GB GDDR6 | 1,762 shaders| 2,491MHz Boost | $249.99 (opens in new tab)

ASRock Radeon RX 6600 | 8GB GDDR6 | 1,762 shaders| 2,491MHz Boost | $249.99 $209.99 at Newegg (save $40) (opens in new tab)
The RX 6600 wasn't a great card at launch, but you can't ignore it at this price. It's over $100 off its reference MSRP, and frankly you won't find a better deal on any card from the competition that gets anywhere close to this sort of value at this price. If you can't stretch your budget to an RX 6650 XT, this is the way to go for 1080p gaming. 

Gigabyte Eagle Radeon RX 6650 XT | 8GB GDDR6 | 2,048 shaders | 2,635MHz boost | $299.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte Eagle Radeon RX 6650 XT | 8GB GDDR6 | 2,048 shaders | 2,635MHz boost | $299.99 $259.99 at Newegg (save $40 after rebate) (opens in new tab)
This doesn't sound like such a crazy price from the Newegg listing, but trust me, it's one the best we've seen in, literally, years. The original version of this card launched for $379, competing with the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060. Today, the slightly faster RX 6650 XT version is less than the price of most RTX 3050s. Let that sink in for a moment. And it's a triple-fan cooler from a trusted manufacturer.

Sapphire Pulse RX 6700 | 10GB GDDR6 | 2,304 shaders | 2,495MHz Boost | $369.99 (opens in new tab)

Sapphire Pulse RX 6700 | 10GB GDDR6 | 2,304 shaders | 2,495MHz Boost | $369.99 $329.99 at Newegg (save $40) (opens in new tab)
This Sapphire card is a slightly overclocked version of the non-XT RX 6700, and that puts this card in the performance bracket between the RX 6650 XT and the RTX 3060 Ti from Nvidia. That will make it an excellent 1080p card, and a capable 1440p GPU for that matter.

XFX Speedster SWFT309 Radeon RX 6700 | 10GB GDDR6 | 2,304 shaders | 2,425MHz Boost | $399.99 (opens in new tab)

With a larger GPU and more memory to use in game, the RX 6700 is a solid step up from the RX 6650 XT. We tend to see these go for a little more with the XT version, but this non-XT option keeps the price a bit more reasonable while still delivering solid gaming performance for 1080p and 1440p.

MSI Mech RX 6750 XT | 12GB | 2,560 shaders | 2,618MHz | $549.99 (opens in new tab)

MSI Mech RX 6750 XT | 12GB | 2,560 shaders | 2,618MHz | $549.99 $369.99 at Newegg (save $180 after rebate) (opens in new tab)
We wouldn't normally be recommending the RX 6750 XT, after all it was the only RX 6x50 card that didn't make a lick of sense. It was only a slightly faster version of the RX 6700 XT but for a chunk more cash. This one, however, is a slightly faster version for a chunk less cash. And if you want a frame of reference from the last gen, it performs at a similar level to the RTX 2080 Ti. A former $1,200 GPU.

MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3060 Ti | 8GB GDDR6 | 4,864 shaders | 1,695MHz Boost | $459.99 (opens in new tab)

Not quite as cheap as it was earlier this week, but now it comes with a free copy of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. If you're dead set on an Nvidia GPU, the RTX 3060 Ti has been, and pretty much still is, the best value buy of the bunch. 

Zotac RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge | 8GB GDDR6 | 4,864 shaders | 1,695MHz Boost | $399.99 (opens in new tab)

An RTX 3060 Ti below MSRP. It's taken a long time, but it's finally happened. In standard gaming terms it's still offers the same level of frame rates as an RX 6700 XT, but has the added benefit of actually being able to deal with ray tracing at mid-range resolutions.

Zotac RTX 3060 Ti Amp White | 8GB GDDR6 | 4,864 shaders | 1,755MHz Boost | $409.99 (opens in new tab)

Another RTX 3060 Ti under MSRP thanks to another Zotac promo code. But this time you get both a funky white aesthetic and a pretty healthy GPU overclock to boot. The RTX 3060 Ti is still a great 1440p gaming card even this far down the road after release.

Gigabyte RX 6700 XT Eagle | 12GB GDDR6 | 2,560 shaders | 2,581MHz Boost | $469.99 (opens in new tab)

This RX 6700 XT is cheaper than the lowest cost RTX 3060 Ti we've found, and delivers the same rasterized gaming performance. For ray tracing, it's admittedly slower, but honestly, you're probably not going to want to turn RT on with the Nvidia card, either. This is a quality mid-range card, with a serious triple-fan cooler to boot. 

Yeston RTX 3080 | 10GB GDDR6X | 8,704 shaders | 1,710MHz Boost | $1,099 (opens in new tab)

Yeston RTX 3080 | 10GB GDDR6X | 8,704 shaders | 1,710MHz Boost | $1,099 $769 at Newegg (save $330) (opens in new tab)
If you're not willing to wait until December, or are willing to pay another $70 just for the artwork alone, this Yeston RTX 3080 isn't a bad price considering where the card has been retailing for the past year or two. In pure raster terms, the RX 6900 XT is cheaper and a bit quicker, but throw in any ray tracing elements and the GeForce card will push ahead.

The Acer Nitro is a budget IPS screen with genuine gaming credentials. It's got a super low response time at 0.5ms and a 165Hz refresh rate. It may only be a 24-inch panel, but there's a lot to like about this bargainous display.

This big screen LG gaming monitor has never been cheaper than it is right now, and it's a great price for a genuine known-brand 1440p display. Yes, it's VA not IPS, but it will still deliver great colors and sports a high refresh rate alongside its AMD FreeSync tech.

This is an old monitor now, having launched in 2017, but it's still an outstanding full G-Sync IPS gaming monitor. It's been selling for this price since mid-October, so it's not precisely a Black Friday deal, but we've never seen it cheaper.

4K gaming monitors aren't necessarily super expensive anymore, but the GPUs that will really allow you to game in 4K at acceptable frame rates still are. For our money, if you want something more expansive than a 1440p panel you need an ultrawide. This VA panel from Acer has the ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio and a high refresh rate to boot. It's also never been cheaper than today.

A couple of years ago when the Acer Nitro XV273K launched, it was a $899 monitor. It currently has an MSRP of $499. But it's now yours for just $379.99. For a proper 4K, 144Hz, IPS gaming panel. It's also good for 1ms response and 400 nits of brightness. So, maybe the question is, can you afford not to go 4K...?

LG is the originator of the IPS panel technology and its 1ms response is about as fast as you're going to see this sort of screen get. And with a potential 180Hz overclock available on this big screen, 1440p display, the LG Ultragear has a lot to offer for the money, and it's only ever been cheaper than this once before.

Confusingly, there are at least two other G5 models. But we think this is the one you want. It's a 21:9, 34-inch ultra-wide bad boy with 165Hz refresh and 1ms response. It's not a fancy HDR model with a mini-LED backlight. But at this price point, that's pretty much a given.

Obviously, $600 is still a lot of money, but the beauty of spending big on a gaming monitor is that it will likely still be a great screen long after you've moved on from your current gaming PC. And this big screen 4K IPS panel is no exception, with a 1ms response, and the all-important high 144Hz refresh rate. It's not a bargain, but it's a very good price for a big boi screen.

LG OLED A2 | 48-inch | 4K | OLED | 60Hz | $1,299.99 $569.99 at Best Buy (save $730) (opens in new tab)

This is a great price for a 4K OLED TV, and at 48 inches it's still viable as a very large PC monitor. A word of caution, though: It's limited to 60Hz, so if you've just got yourself a nice GPU and want to push games as far as you can, this will be a limiting factor.

LG C2 OLED | 42-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,499.99 (opens in new tab)

LG C2 OLED | 42-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,499.99 $996.99 at Walmart (save $503) (opens in new tab)
Only the best gaming TV on the planet with a $630 saving right now. Oof. Yeah, this is the real LG OLED deal, and at the 42-inch scale actually makes for an amazing gaming monitor. The HDMI 2.1 makes 4K at 120Hz a reality on PC, and the lightning-fast response of OLED panels makes it glorious for gaming. Yum.

LG OLED55B2PUA| 55-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,599.99 (opens in new tab)

LG OLED55B2PUA| 55-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,599.99 $996.99 at Walmart (save $603) (opens in new tab)
A fantastic OLED offering for gamers, with deep blacks, HDMI 2.1, and all the VRR options you could handle. This one offers low input lag and is topped off with a nifty 120Hz refresh rate. Sure, there are higher refresh rate monitors but, a 55-inch gaming OLED TV sounds pretty great as a giant second monitor for that price.

LG 86 UQ75 (opens in new tab)

LG UQ75 | 86-inch | 4K | 120Hz | $1,199.99 $999.99 at Best Buy (save $200) (opens in new tab)

While the UQ75 isn't particularly gaming focused, an 86-inch beast that's under $1,000 is a solid deal. The huge size means you won't be replacing your PC monitor, but if you're looking for a living room TV that you can also stream games to (or use with a living room PC) then this is worth a look, especially with the 120Hz refresh rate.

Black Friday NVMe SSD deals

Solidigm P41 Plus | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 4,125MB/s reads | 2,950MB/s writes | $89.99 (opens in new tab)

Solidigm P41 Plus | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 4,125MB/s reads | 2,950MB/s writes | $89.99 $59.99 at Amazon (save $30) (opens in new tab)
This is one of the cheapest 1TB NVMe SSDs you can grab right now. It's a QLC drive, so the performance isn't stellar, especially once you go beyond the SLC cache, but it's still faster than a SATA drive. Solidigm is the new consumer brand from SK Hynix, so you know you're in safe hands too.

SK hynix Platinum P41 | 2TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,000MB/s reads | 6,500MB/s writes | $259.99 (opens in new tab)

SK hynix Platinum P41 | 2TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,000MB/s reads | 6,500MB/s writes | $259.99 $169.99 at Amazon (save $90) (opens in new tab)
This deal on this impressive SK Hynix Platinum P41 might be the cheapest 2TB PCIe 4.0 we've found far. It's a fine SSD with excellent performance. At $169.99, you won't find a faster SSD at this price. 

Gigabyte Aorus Gen4 | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 5,000MB/s reads | 4,400MB/s writes | $109.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte Aorus Gen4 | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 5,000MB/s reads | 4,400MB/s writes | $109.99 $79.99 at Newegg (save $30) (opens in new tab)
So, it's not strictly a deal, but it's another cheap 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD that's still seriously quick. It's an early PCIe 4.0 SSD, which explains why it lags behind more recent drives, but still, its Phison E16 controller and Toshiba TLC memory make it a quality drive. Especially for the money.

WD Black SN770 | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 5,150MB/s reads | 4,900MB/s writes | $129.99 (opens in new tab)

WD Black SN770 | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 5,150MB/s reads | 4,900MB/s writes | $129.99 $79.99 at Amazon (save $50) (opens in new tab)
It may not match the peak performance of the pricier SN850, but this is a great budget option. And a good shout for anyone still stuck on a PCIe 3.0 motherboard but with a yearning for an upgrade soonish. It's a DRAM-less option, but the underlying performance is strong enough for most tasks.

Samsung 980 SSD | 1TB | PCIe 3.0 | 3,500 MB/s reads | 3,000 MB/s writes | $139.99 (opens in new tab)

Samsung 980 SSD | 1TB | PCIe 3.0 | 3,500 MB/s reads | 3,000 MB/s writes | $139.99 $79.99 at Amazon (save $60) (opens in new tab)
For well under $100, you can bag a full 1TB of fast PCIe 3.0 SSD storage. That's plenty of space for a boot drive and a host of your most often-played games. You would have to be a Samsung fan to pick this over the WD Black SN770, but if that goes out of stock, the Samsung 980 is a great backup. Back up. See, SSD deals with humor; we've got it all.

WD_BLACK SN850X | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,300MB/s read | 6,300MB/s writes | $134.99 (opens in new tab)

WD_BLACK SN850X | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,300MB/s read | 6,300MB/s writes | $134.99 $99.99 at Newegg (save $35) (opens in new tab)
The updated SN850X isn't hugely different from the non-X version, but it has a slightly different SanDisk controller and higher performance. The big thing, though, is that it runs much cooler, so you don't really need a heatsinked version. It's also cheaper than the older drive right now, too.

$229.99 (opens in new tab)

PNY XLR8 CS3140 | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,500MB/s read | 5,650MB/s writes | $229.99 $99.99 at Amazon (save $130) (opens in new tab)
PNY has got an impressive little NVMe 1TB on sale for $100. It's a solid drive that can also be used inside a PlayStation 5 for an easy storage upgrade. If you got some extra spending cash, there's a 2TB version of the drive with a heatsink on sale for only $270 (opens in new tab). Either way, you won't be disappointed. 

Samsung 980 Pro | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,000MB/s read | 5,000MB/s writes | $129 (opens in new tab)

Samsung 980 Pro | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,000MB/s read | 5,000MB/s writes | $129 $109.99 at Amazon (save $21) (opens in new tab)
The Samsung 980 Pro is one of the classic early PCIe 4.0 SSDs and is still a high performer. The fact it's been outclassed by the 990 Pro in terms of raw speed is one thing, but you'll barely notice that in the real world. And when it's $60-odd cheaper the 980 Pro becomes a stellar drive.

Team Group EX2 | 2.5-inch | 1TB | SATA | $69.99 $51.49 at Newegg (save $18.50) (opens in new tab)
We highly recommend you use an NVMe drive in your system, if it has a slot for one. They're generally much faster than a SATA drive such as this. However, if you can't make room or don't have an NVMe slot to begin with, a smart 1TB SSD like this would make a great drive for all your games.

If you're just looking for a diminutive, cheap external SSD, this little guy might be just the thing. It's a bit slower than the other deals here, and at 1TB you're not going to be throwing all of your big games onto it, but it's extremely portable and under $70.

$114.99 (opens in new tab)

PNY Pro Elite V2 | 1TB | USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C | 1,000MB/s reads | 1,000MB/s writes | $114.99 $84.99 at Amazon (save $30) (opens in new tab)

A speedy little external SSD with a very nice discount, the WD My Passport also benefits from additional layers of security, letting you password-protect and encrypt your data.

The Samsung T7 Shield (opens in new tab) is the more rugged, better-looking cousin of the T7 Portable SSD. It gives you the same performance as the T7, but it's rated IP65. This means it can withstand more elements than your typical external SSD and won't break if it gets a little wet.

Black Friday gaming chair deals

Noblechairs Epic (opens in new tab)

Noblechairs Epic (black and copper) | 4D armrests | PU leather | $499 $199 at Noblechairs (save $300) (opens in new tab)
Noblechairs has a handful of key designs for its gaming chairs: the Epic, the Hero, and the Icon. Our favourite is probably the Hero, but we've rested our rears on all three and they're all very close to one another in terms of comfort and style. It's hard to pass up the Epic at this price, anyways, and it looks lovely in black and copper.

AndaSeat Jungle 2 | Neck pillow | Lumbar support | Footrest |  $249.99 (opens in new tab)

AndaSeat Jungle 2 | Neck pillow | Lumbar support | Footrest | $249.99 $199.99 at AndaSeat (save $50) (opens in new tab)
Already decent value for the money, we scored the AndaSeat Jungle a 70 in our testing (opens in new tab). It's not that it's a terrible chair, just a little off when it comes to the footrest and finish, otherwise it's a great chair for the money. Nice and wide, too.

$299.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Enki X | 299 lbs max | 152 degree recline | $299.99 $229.99 at Best Buy (save $70) (opens in new tab)
Now we're talking: a Razer gaming chair that doesn't break the bank. Surprisingly, you'll find a lot of similarities between this and the more expensive standard Enki model, including an overall comfortable design and plenty of recline. The differences to note are 2D armrests on the X, along with the lack of head cushion.

Razer Enki | 299 lbs max | 152 degree recline | 4D armrests | $399.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Enki | 299 lbs max | 152 degree recline | 4D armrests | $399.99 $339.99 at Best Buy ($60) (opens in new tab)
Razer has a few models of gaming chair to choose from, and the Enki is a more pared-back option versus its more involved (and more expensive) Iskur. The funny thing is Razer has also made cheaper versions of both the Enki and Iskur, denoted with an X, so you have a lot of options available to you at any budget. Choose the standard Enki if you want an excellent headrest and highly adjustable armrests, as you lose those on the Enki X. Otherwise, the Enki X appears the better value proposition right now.

Secretlab OMEGA 2020 Series Gaming Chair (opens in new tab)

Secretlab Omega Cloud9 edition | 4D armrests | $569 $389 at Secretlab (save $180) (opens in new tab)
Wrapped in Secretlab prime 2.0 PU Leather, this Classic Omega gaming chair is the more reasonably priced choice. It may not come with magnetic headrests but it's highly adjustable. In fact, this still ranks as one of our favorite gaming chairs. The cheapest versions tend to come in esports flair, so it's worth checking those models out to see which you like most.

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Worlds 2021 edition | 4D armrests | $659 (opens in new tab)

This is the cheapest version of the Titan Evo 2022 we can find right now. It's the same impressive and excellent chair we love, except it's styled after last year's Worlds esports tournament. If you don't care about looks, this might be the one to go for. Or if you love Worlds that much? Otherwise, more plain or exciting options are available for a touch more cash.

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 (opens in new tab)

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Classic | 4D armrests | $589 $484 at Secretlab (save $105) (opens in new tab)
This is our pick for the best gaming chair (opens in new tab), and you'll know why once you sit in it. Or read our Secretlab Titan Evo review (opens in new tab). As for this specific design, it's one of the more understated of the lot. It's not as sensual to the touch as the Softweave fabric choice, but still boasts immaculately upholstered, premium quality Neo Hybrid Leatherette, and of course fantastic ergonomics. The full price can be a bit deceiving on Secretlab chairs, as we rarely ever see it, but this is still a good deal on a great chair.

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 (opens in new tab)

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Plush Pink | 4D armrests | $609 $504 at Secretlab (save $105) (opens in new tab)
Nothing makes a statement to your streaming audience (or live-in partner) like a baby pink gaming chair, but of course there are other colours to chose from. It's a standout choice for the Softweave Plus Fabric design, and is a top tier design, pink or not.

Razer Iskur X | 299 lbs max | 4D armrests | $399.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Iskur X | 299 lbs max | 4D armrests | $399.99 $284.99 at Best Buy (save $115) (opens in new tab)

Razer Seiren Mini | White, Pink, Black | $49.99 $37.99 at Amazon (save $12) (opens in new tab)

You can also get it in white or pink, and now all the colors are discounted! It's a super-simple mic, using the internals of more expensive options within a basic package. I mean, there's not even a mute button...

$99.99 (opens in new tab)

Blue Yeti Nano USB Streaming Microphone | $99.99 $69.99 at Amazon (save $30) (opens in new tab)
This excellent, easy-to-use entry-level microphone has the size and sound you want if you're a streamer low on cash. As budget microphones go, the Nano has more features than the competition.

Audio-Technica AT2020USB+ | USB | Cardioid | Condenser | $149 $69 at B&H (save $80) (opens in new tab)
The AT2020USB+ is a solid jack-of-all-trades microphone that isn't too flashy but gets the job done. At $80, it's a good entry-level podcasting microphone though you should invest in a boom arm since the included mic stand isn't as sturdy as we'd like. 

$159.99 (opens in new tab)

HyperX QuadCast S |Black, Silver, White | $159.99 $119.99 at Amazon (save $40) (opens in new tab)
A great microphone if you're looking to spice up your stream a bit. I'm obsessed with the RGB on Quadcast S, and it's hypnotic shifting colors.  

$249.00 (opens in new tab)

Shure MV7 | USB | XLR | Dynamic | Cardioid | $249.00 $199.99 at Walmart (save $49.01) (opens in new tab)
Our favourite microphone for two years, the absolute best in the business. Shure is a beast at making high-end, professional microphones and its attempt at bringing its pro-grade sound to a slightly less pro-grade price is a home run. The only thing we're not too keen on is that it uses Micro-USB rather than Type-C, but it's well worth the investment to give your voice recordings the professional boost they deserve.

Elgato FaceCam (opens in new tab)

Elgato Facecam| 1080p60 | DSLR Style Control | $169.99 $139.99 at Amazon (save $30) (opens in new tab)
Our favourite webcam, especially when it comes to streaming, is always easy to recommend but especially so when it's on sale. If you're not wanting to step up to a full DLSR setup, then this is a great choice to enhance the quality of your stream.

Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini gaming mouse | 8,500 DPI | 62g | $49.99 $29.99 at Razer (Save $20) (opens in new tab)
A lightweight and compact mouse with a great sensor. Though it's not got the highest DPI in the business, it boasts great ergonomics and decent build quality, too—there's not much more you can ask at that price.

Logitech G502 Hero | 25,000 DPI | Wired | Right-handed | $49.99 $34.99 at Target (save $15) (opens in new tab)
It's not the biggest saving, but it does mean that this Logitech classic of a gaming mouse is now available for less than $40, which feels like a bargain. The angular shape might put you off initially, but it's actually super comfortable in the hand, and the Logitech Hero sensor is one of the best around.

The gaming mouse loved by many is still as great as ever in 2022. Considering this mouse has long stood as the de facto example of what's required for accurate control in-game, it's always surprising to see how far its price has crumbled over the years. If you don't know what to buy the PC gamer in your life, but you know they could upgrade to a proper gaming mouse, this is a fantastic option that far surpasses most budget wired mice.

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed | Wireless | 16,000 DPI | Right-handed | $59.99 $39.99 at Best Buy (Save $20) (opens in new tab)
Wireless shouldn't mean expensive, and in the case of the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed wireless mouse, it doesn't. Especially with this deal over at Best Buy. You can also rest assured this is a high quality mouse from a reputable brand with a great ergonomic shape.

Corsair Sabre RGB Pro | Wireless | 26,000 DPI | 7 buttons | $109.99 (opens in new tab)

Corsair Sabre RGB Pro | Wireless | 26,000 DPI | 7 buttons | $109.99 $39.99 at Best Buy (save $70) (opens in new tab)
This wireless gaming mouse from Corsair is deceptively fast. Though, you probably couldn't tell just by looking at it. Either way, it's a solid gaming mouse with around 90 hours of battery life, and it's at a really good price at $40.

Razer's Naga X mouse is a simplified version of the Naga Pro, built for MMO players in need of tons of shortcuts. It doesn't come with the interchangeable side panels like the Pro, but if you're single-minded in your approach to macros and want just tons of options at your fingertips (or thumb tip, really), this is a very affordable option.

Glorious Model O | 12,000 DPI | 6 buttons | RGB lighting | $49.99 (opens in new tab)

Glorious Model O | 12,000 DPI | 6 buttons | RGB lighting | $49.99 $43.50 at Amazon (save $6.49) (opens in new tab)
A small saving, but a decent one on a mouse that doesn't often dip much below its usual $50 price tag. When you click the link Amazon will say you're saving more on this mouse, but Glorious sell it for $50 on their own website so you can't really call it a 47% discount. Still, it's some money off a very impressive, and notably light (at 67g) gaming mouse with a speedy sensor.

SteelSeries Prime | 18,000 DPI | 80g | $129.99 $69.99 at Amazon (Save $60) (opens in new tab)
For the competitive prowess it exhibits, this wireless rodent is certainly worth investigating. The TrueMove Pro sensor is great, and it's nice and light for FPS players looking to fling it around the mouse pad.

It's a fan favourite, and we're big admirers too, although clearly it's a lot pricier than your average gaming mouse, even a wireless one. With the included charging dock, though, you can take the hassle out of charging your battery.

Razer Cynosa Chroma | Membrane | Per-key RGB lighting | $59.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Cynosa Chroma | Membrane | Per-key RGB lighting | $59.99 $29.99 at Amazon (save $30) (opens in new tab)
We're pretty resolute on mechanical keyboards being the best here at PC Gamer, but no matter what, every year we run into someone that swears by a membrane. They're generally cheaper, you can definitely say that about them, and usually they have some features you won't find on any decent quality mechanical at this price. This Razer Cynosa is a board we've run into time and time again on team: a solid performer at a price that keeps going lower, and worth consideration if you split your time equally between gaming and typing.

Havit RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (opens in new tab)

Havit mechanical keyboard | Red silent | $49.99 $30.39 at Amazon (Save $19.60) (opens in new tab)
A 60% keyboard with boatloads of style, and lovely PBT keycaps (opens in new tab). We haven't tested the red key switches it's touting, but they're rated at 50 million keypresses. And silent ones too, so ideal if you're better half can't stand the clicking and the clacking all night long.

Logitech G413 TKL SE | Tenkeyless | Mechanical cross stem switch (tactile) | White LED lighting | $69.99 (opens in new tab)

Logitech G413 TKL SE | Tenkeyless | Mechanical cross stem switch (tactile) | White LED lighting | $69.99 $49.99 at Amazon (save $20) (opens in new tab)
If you want a cheap mechanical keyboard, you're likely looking at a board with a smaller footprint than your standard key layout, such as this tenkeyless design. If you're gaming, it's a solid performer that also saves space. However, it might not suffice for busy office life if you use the numpad a lot. (Hello, accountant readers.) The G413 also forgoes RGB lighting or any fancy features, but isn't bad if you want a mechanical on a membrane budget.

Razer BlackWidow Lite | Silent and Compact Keyboard with mechanical switches | White LED backlighting | $89.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer BlackWidow Lite | Silent and Compact Keyboard with mechanical switches | White LED backlighting | $89.99 $49.99 at Razer (opens in new tab)

Razer doesn't just make keyboards that light up all the colors of the rainbow: it has a discreet side too. The BlackWidow Lite is a compact version of its classic keyboard model, with a more restrained design than usual and silent mechanical keys. A perfect combination for work and pleasure, and the 44% off is a genuinely chunky discount.

$99.99 (opens in new tab)

HyperX Alloy Origins | 65% | Red mechanical switch (linear) | RGB lighting | $99.99 $69.99 at Best Buy (save $30) (opens in new tab)
Who doesn't love a 65 percenter? This HyperX Alloy Origins is not only one of the better 65% keyboards out there, but its RGB backlit keys make it of the best-looking ones as well. When I used it, what sold me on the Alloy were durable double-shot PBT keys that felt great to type on. It's a solid gaming keyboard that won't take up a ton of space on your desk. 

Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition (opens in new tab)

Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition | Linear Optical switch | Tenkeyless | $129.99 $77.99 at Razer (save $52) (opens in new tab)
We like the Razer Huntsman plenty, but what about its little sibling, the Tournament Edition? Well, clearly we like that, too. In fact, tenkeyless keyboards are some of our favourites for gaming, and this one offers all you need with  the added bonus of in-your-face green keycaps to boot. 

Mountain Everest 60 (opens in new tab)

Mountain Everest 60 | 60% keyboard | RGB | Optional numpad | $139.99 $79.99 at Mountain (save $60) (opens in new tab)
(opens in new tab)This little keyboard packs a real punch despite only being 60%-sized. Like it's namesake the Everest is robust, unlike it's namesake there's an optional modular numpad and you can pick from a wide range of keycap colours to suit your vibe.

Roccat Vulcan TKL | Tenkeyless | Titan mechanical switch (tactile) | Per-key RGB lighting | $129.99 (opens in new tab)

Roccat Vulcan TKL | Tenkeyless | Titan mechanical switch (tactile) | Per-key RGB lighting | $129.99 $89.47 at Amazon (save $40) (opens in new tab)
This Roccat keyboard is a unique proposition. I've never used anything else like it: The keycaps are completely exposed, making for a love or hate it design. Though fundamentally it's a fully mechanical keyboard with Roccat's own Titan switches, which I found reasonably good for gaming and typing on. The only thing is that this price isn't entirely new for Black Friday, as we've seen it a few times lately, but it's a good price for what you're getting regardless.

Razer Huntsman Elite | Full-size | Razer opto-mechanical switch (linear) | Per-key RGB lighting | $199.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Huntsman Elite | Full-size | Razer opto-mechanical switch (linear) | Per-key RGB lighting | $199.99 $99.99 at Amazon (save $100) (opens in new tab)
This mechanical keyboard sports Razer's opto-mechanical switches, dedicated media keys, and supports customisable RGB Chroma technology. It's very flashy, literally, but there's more going on than looks alone. Those speedy switches are great for competitive gaming.

Keychron K4 Wireless | Compact full-size | Gateron Brown switch (tactile) | $104.99 (opens in new tab)

Keychron K4 Wireless | Compact full-size | Gateron Brown switch (tactile) | $104.99 $99.99 at Amazon (save $5) (opens in new tab)
Not a massive saving on this keyboard, but seeing as we were so impressed with the Keychron we reviewed, the K2 Version 2, we thought even a $15 discount would be worth highlighting on this model. This is a wireless keyboard with both 2.4G wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, and you can plug it in via USB Type-C, so it's good for pretty much any situation.

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog | Opto-mechanical | $199.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog | Opto-mechanical | $199.99 $124.98 at Amazon (Save $48.01) (opens in new tab)
Okay, so it's a refurbished keyboard, but this is very cheap for a supreme gaming keyboard. Optical switches make it faster than your average mechanical board, and you get a wrist rest as well. Not too shabby.

Drop CTRL mechanical keyboard | Hot Swappable switches | Tenkeyless | Per-key RGB | $200 $139 at Drop (save $61) (opens in new tab)
The Drop CTRL is a weighty, premium-feeling keyboard with one major selling point: you can pull out every switch and replace them with whatever you choose. Start with Drop's Halo switches, then try out a set of MX Cherry Browns or Holy Pandas (opens in new tab). A great way to ease your way into the wider world of mech keyboards.

Drop + Lord of the Rings | Tenkeyless | Holy Panda X | Wired | $199 $139 at Drop (save $60) (opens in new tab)
One thing I've been pining over since the day it released is this Drop + LOTR keyboard. This is the Dwarven version and comes with the renowned Holy Panda X switch. Now it's got a good chunk of money off it's time to make one purchase to rule them all.

Logitech G915 Lightspeed SE | Tenkeyless | Wireless | Mechanical GL Tactile Switch | $229.99 $159.99 at Best Buy (save $70)
(opens in new tab)This Logitech is one of the best keyboards on the market today. However, it becomes tough to recommend at its steep regular price. But with a $70 saving, it's much easier to recommend. At home, I use the white model, and can't imagine changing to anything else.

Logitech G915 (opens in new tab)

Logitech G915 wireless mechanical gaming keyboard | Linear | Black | $249.99 $180.75 at Amazon (save $70) (opens in new tab)
Our usual problem with this keyboard is its price, so this deal is a welcome one. The linear variety of this keyboard is the cheapest at the moment though the tactile and clicky versions are also discounted on Amazon. No matter which you pick, you'll feel the benefit for the extra cash for years to come as you WASD around with greater comfort and control.

Corsair K100 RGB | Full-size | Optical switch (linear) | Per-key RGB lighting | $249.99 (opens in new tab)

Corsair K100 RGB | Full-size | Optical switch (linear) | Per-key RGB lighting | $249.99 $169.99 at Newegg (save $80 with promo code CMPFXSTPM) (opens in new tab)
The K100 was, for a long time, our number one pick for the best gaming keyboard. Admittedly it's slipped down the ranks a little now, mostly because some cheaper boards offer similar stuff, but this discount puts the K100 back on a competitive footing for a gaming keyboard that offers everything. It's fast, programmable, and it looks and feels great.

Black Friday controller deals

Sony PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller (opens in new tab)

Sony DualSense Wireless Controller | The good colors | Bluetooth| $74.99 $49.00 at Amazon (save $26) (opens in new tab)
The Playstation DualSense controller has become a favorite among PC gamers thanks to some recent firmware updates. Between the touchpad and haptic feedback, what's not to like? They are also rarely on sale; when they are, it's never for this cheap. The only issue is that it's only the white version on sale right now.

Xbox Wireless Controller | Multiple colors | Wireless | $64.99 (opens in new tab)

Xbox Wireless Controller | Multiple colors | Wireless | $64.99 $44.99 at Amazon (save $20) (opens in new tab)
If you prefer the offset sticks of Xbox, then you'll want to look to Microsoft's own design controller for your Black Friday purchase. It's actually Microsoft itself that has the best Xbox controller deal we can find on the official model so far, and there are a few fun colors to choose from—though notably not as many as Sony and some are more expensive than others. Or not in stock 😥

$399.99 (opens in new tab)

Logitech G Dual-Motor Feedback G29 Racing Wheel & Pedals | $399.99 $199.99 at Amazon (save $200) (opens in new tab)
Logitech's popular racing wheel is back on sale again for half off. Anyone looking to build a racing cockpit for playing F1 22 will appreciate the force feedback on the steering wheel and pressure-sensitive pedals. 

Black Friday gaming headset deals

Razer BlackShark V2 CouRageJD Edition | 50mm drivers | 12-28,000Hz| Closed-back | Wired | $109.99 $54.99 at Best Buy (save $55) (opens in new tab)
The BlackShark dethroned the HyperX Cloud Alpha to become our top gaming headset, with sound quality "far above what you will get with most other sets in this price point," thanks to drivers with smartly separated bass, mids, and treble. It's the champion for two years running.

HyperX Cloud Alpha (opens in new tab)

HyperX Cloud Alpha| Wired | 50mm drivers | 13-27,000Hz | Closed-back | $99.99 $54.99 at Amazon (save $45) (opens in new tab)
The lowest-ever price for the more affordable wired version of our favorite wireless gaming headset. The Cloud series is legendary, and the Alpha has held strong for 5 years now as the best pair of cans HyperX has ever made.

$129.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Kraken Ultimate | 50mm drivers | 20–28,000Hz | Closed-back | Wired (3.5mm) | $129.99 $64.99 at Best Buy (save $65) (opens in new tab)
If you love the look and design of the Kraken but wish it had a little oompf. The Kraken Ultimate might be more up your alley. It offers THX spatial audio and better bass than the cheaper, greener base Kraken. 

Drop x Sennheiser HD 6XX | Wired | 10–41,000Hz | Open-back | $279 (opens in new tab)

Drop x Sennheiser HD 6XX | Wired | 10–41,000Hz | Open-back | $279 $179 at Drop (save $100) (opens in new tab)
Our Jacob is a huge fan of the Sennheiser HD 650. It's basically Sennheiser's classic audiophile headset and it sounds absolutely stunning. The HD 6XX is Drop's version of that same headset, in partnership with Sennheiser, of course. So you're getting a slightly modified version of the HD 650 for quite a bit less cash, especially with this deal. Just note it doesn't come with a microphone, so you'll need one of those separately. Similarly, you might need a more powerful amp to get the most out of this headset, but that's not necessarily a requirement.

Razer Barracuda X (opens in new tab)

Razer Barracuda X | 40mm drivers | 20–20,000Hz | Closed-back | Wireless | $99.99 $56.60 at Amazon (save $43.39) (opens in new tab)
The Quartz pink version of the Razer Barracudas here are loud in sound and in style. This headset sounds great, and it's multiplatform with enough battery life to wear all day. Plus it's super comfy.

$149.99 (opens in new tab)

SteelSeries Arctis 7X (Xbox Version) | 40mm drivers | 20–20,000Hz | Closed-back | Wireless | $149.99 $89.99 at SteelSeries (save $70) (opens in new tab)
The Arctis 7X at a time was one of our favorite wireless headsets for both PC and console gaming. Its ski goggle headband is very comfortable and perfect for marathon gaming sessions. Our only problem is that the bass isn't great for the price, and there's no Bluetooth support, so it's not great for commuting.

$299.99 (opens in new tab)

Sony Inzone H9 | 40mm drivers | 5–20,000Hz | Closed-back | Wireless | $299.99 $279.99 at Best Buy (save $20) (opens in new tab)
Sony's new premium PC gaming headset, the Inzone H9, is predictably pricey, and this is the first time it's been on sale since its launch. It has features like ANC, Bluetooth wireless, and a decent 32-hour battery life. While Inzone software isn't the best, the default sound and sleek design are suitable for PS5 and PC gamers looking for a fancy headset.

Black Friday CPU deals

Intel Core i7 12600K | 10 cores, 16 threads | 4.9GHz | $299.99 (opens in new tab)

Intel Core i7 12600K | 10 cores, 16 threads | 4.9GHz | $299.99 $249.99 at Newegg (save $60) (opens in new tab)
It was between this or the Ryzen 5 7600X with a tasty discount, but Intel offers a cheaper platform right now and its 12th Gen chips can importantly keep up in gaming. I'd love this to be the Core i5 13600K, but that chip is just too expensive today.

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X (opens in new tab)

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X | Eight-core | 16-thread | 4.7GHz | Zen 3 | $449 $273.99 at Amazon (save $175.01) (opens in new tab)
It might be a generation old now, but this is still one of the best CPUs money can buy. And you needn't spend a whole lot on the Ryzen 7 5800X anymore. With this tasty discount it's going for less than the cost of a Ryzen 5 7600X at launch, yet you'll net yourself eight speedy Zen 3 cores to throw at gaming and more.

4 | $549.00 (opens in new tab)

AMD Ryzen 9 7900X | 12 core 24 thread CPU| 5.6GHz | Zen 4 | $549.00 $439.99 at Amazon (save $109.01) (opens in new tab)
All of AMD's Ryzen 7000 series have had haircuts and the 12-core 7900X looks pretty appealing at well under $500. It's arguably overkill for pure gaming purposes, but represents excellent bang for your buck for all-round high-performance computing purposes.

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X | 12 cores 24 threads | 4.8GHz | Zen 3 | $569.99 (opens in new tab)

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X | 12 cores 24 threads | 4.8GHz | Zen 3 | $569.99 $341.48 at Amazon (save $228.51) (opens in new tab)
This is the best CPU from the Zen 3 era and delivers an enormous amount of multi-threaded performance from a chip now so cheap. An absolutely stonking upgrade for almost anyone sat on an AM4 motherboard right now.

4 | $449.00 (opens in new tab)

AMD Ryzen 7 7700X | 8 core 16 thread CPU| 5.4GHz | Zen 4 | $449.00 $348.99 at Amazon (save $100.01) (opens in new tab)
While the 7600X is arguably the sweet spot for pure gaming, there's a good argument for the 7700X as the best all-round CPU. Two extra cores gives it that bit more clout for stuff like video encoding, but also a little future proofing should games get a little better at multi-threading.

4 | $299.00 (opens in new tab)

AMD Ryzen 5 7600X | 6 core 12 thread CPU| 5.3GHz | Zen 4 | $299.00 $248.99 at Amazon (save $50.01) (opens in new tab)
Do you need any more CPU for gaming than the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X? Almost certainly not. With six Zen 4 cores running at fully 5.3GHz, it's got all the number crunching grunt you need for high frame rates. Very few games will benefit from a CPU with a high core count. So, why spend more?

AMD Ryzen 5 5600 | six-core | 12-thread | 4.4GHz | Zen 3 | $199.99 (opens in new tab)

AMD Ryzen 5 5600 | six-core | 12-thread | 4.4GHz | Zen 3 | $199.99 $135.99 at Newegg (save $64.00) (opens in new tab)
There was a time when this was the chip to buy for most mid-tier affordable gaming PCs. It's been somewhat eclipsed by newer Ryzen chips, though the added cost to buy the 7000-series, along with a new motherboard and DDR5 RAM, does make that a pricier venture overall. The cheap AM4 platform and this chip will deliver the performance we ask of it for great gaming, however, so it's certainly worth a look on a tight budget.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600G | Six-core | 12-thread | 4.4GHz | Zen 3 | $259 (opens in new tab)

AMD Ryzen 5 5600G | Six-core | 12-thread | 4.4GHz | Zen 3 | $259 $123 at Amazon (save $136) (opens in new tab)
If you don't have the budget available to buy a graphics card, you might want to look into the Ryzen 5 5600G. It offers onboard graphics that are decent enough to game at lower resolutions, such as 720p and 1080p, and does so without any extra expense. While its gaming performance isn't quite enough for more demanding games or high frame rates, it will let you get started. And you can always upgrade to a GPU later while still using this chip's solid six-core Zen 3 processor.

T-Force Vulcan Z | 16GB (2x 8GB) | DDR4-3200 | $52.99 $42.99 at Amazon (save $10) (opens in new tab)
Just 16GB of RAM in this machine, which is all we need for gaming. That said, 32GB is tantalisingly cheap right now, so maybe worth considering.

Teamgroup T-Force Vulcan | DDR4 | 16GB (2x8GB) | 3,200MHz | CL16 | $52.99 (opens in new tab)

Teamgroup T-Force Vulcan | DDR4 | 16GB (2x8GB) | 3,200MHz | CL16 | $52.99 $42.99 at Amazon (save $10) (opens in new tab)
It might not look like a major saving but even $6 off a $53 kit is money well saved. It seems like only yesterday kits like this were selling for double, even triple, this price. The best bit is this sort of kit is universally good for any DDR4 machine, be it powered by an Intel CPU or an AMD one. Sure there are faster kits, but this 3,200MHz one will allow your CPU to work at a great pace.

Teamgroup T-Force Vulcan | DDR4 | 32GB (2x16GB) | 3,200MHz | CL16 | $84.99 (opens in new tab)

Teamgroup T-Force Vulcan | DDR4 | 32GB (2x16GB) | 3,200MHz | CL16 | $84.99 $69.99 at Newegg (save $15) (opens in new tab)
Sometimes a deal pops up that makes us audibly gasp. This is such a deal. RAM prices have been dropping for a long time now, but to pick up 32GB of RAM for $70 is absolutely wild. This is a good kit, too, with latency down at a low of 16. This will work a treat for both an AMD or Intel build, and for only $20 more than a 16GB kit.

PNY XLR8 Gaming | DDR4 | 16GB (2x 8GB) | 3,200MHz | CL16 | $81.99 (opens in new tab)

PNY XLR8 Gaming | DDR4 | 16GB (2x 8GB) | 3,200MHz | CL16 | $81.99 $49.99 at Newegg (save $32) (opens in new tab)
This PNY kit is right in the sweet spot for an AMD build. It's also cheap enough to make the upgrade to 16GB within reach for most PC gamers. That's definitely something worth investigating if you're still rocking an 8GB kit, as this is cheap enough to not have to worry about compatibility with what's in your machine already. Pull it out, stick this kit in. Job's done.

Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro SL | DDR4 | 32GB (2x16GB) | 3,600MHz | CL18 | $114.99 (opens in new tab)

Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro SL | DDR4 | 32GB (2x16GB) | 3,600MHz | CL18 | $114.99 $107.99 at Newegg (save $7) (opens in new tab)
This is the very same kit that our Jacob just upgraded to in his own machine, and yes, he did pick this one cause it looks pretty. But it also offers excellent speed and low latency, which pairs perfectly with an AMD Ryzen CPU.

Corsair Vengeance | DDR5 | 32GB (2x 16GB) | 5,600MHz | CL36 | $224.99 (opens in new tab)

Corsair Vengeance | DDR5 | 32GB (2x 16GB) | 5,600MHz | CL36 | $224.99 $144.99 at Amazon (save $80) (opens in new tab)
If you've just bought one of Intel's latest 12th/13th Gen chips, or AMD's Ryzen 7000-series, you could pick a motherboard with support for the latest memory tech, DDR5. These offer better bandwidth for lower voltage than most DDR4 kits, but admittedly the gains for gaming are fairly slim. Still, if you're committed to a high-end build, this Vengeance RAM kit will see you right.

This is the Wi-Fi system our Jacob has installed in his house. It's simple to use, the mesh works great, and a just two of these combined will offer excellent performance through walls and across floors.

Asus RT-AX55 | Wi-Fi 6 | $129.99 $79.99 at Newegg (save $50) (opens in new tab)
For a cheaper option and Wi-Fi 6, this Asus router would make a suitable swap for your ISP provided number. You will need your devices to also be Wi-Fi 6 compatible to get the most out of this router, but most phones and some newer network adapters will suffice. Just note you might need to upgrade your Wi-Fi adapter in your PC to hit the right spec.

Super Flower Leadex Platinum SE | 1200W | 80+ Platinum | Modular | 10-year warranty | $349.99 $189.99 at Newegg (save $160) (opens in new tab)
If you don't know Super Flower, it's the brand that used to power a lot of high-end, recommendation-worthy power supplies from EVGA. Nowadays they're pushing more of their own brand in the US, and this is a high capacity, high efficiency PSU worth investing in for today's powerful GPUs. The only thing is it doesn't support ATX 3.0 for the new 12VHPWR connector, but for the price we can overlook that.

If you're not looking to supercharge your PC with one of today's mega-performance GPUs, most other high-end GPUs and below will work just great with a 750W PSU. That's unlikely to change with the coming generation, too, so this PSU from reliable manufacturer Super Flower should see you well into the future.

When is Black Friday 2022?

Black Friday 2022 is on November 25 this year and will effectively last through until Cyber Monday on November 28. 

Though, in reality, Black Friday is now a month-long event running pretty much throughout the entirety of November. Indeed, since Amazon kicked things off with its Prime Early Access event in October, the deals have been rolling along since then.

What deals can I expect on Black Friday 2022?

If there's one thing we've learned from the two Amazon Prime Day events this year, it's that it looks like graphics card deals are back on the menu, boys. Despite the RTX 4090 (opens in new tab) and RTX 4080 (opens in new tab) cards launching ahead of Black Friday, there will still be a lot of old stock left on the shelves come the big day and into Cyber Monday.

But that doesn't mean every GPU deal is going to be a good one. We've seen a bunch of discounted RTX 3090 Ti cards recently, but even with heavy discounted prices, they're not cheap enough to make sense in a world where the RTX 4090 has made the ultra-enthusiast GPU market a one card deal.

Your best bet is in the mid-range or budget end of the graphics card spectrum. It's going to be a long while before we see new, genuinely affordable GPUs arrive, so if you're not in the market for some super-expensive slab of graphics silicon, there could well be some great deals. Honestly, the best deals are likely to be on AMD cards if past experience is anything to go by, but Nvidia will also be under some pressure to ship its more mainstream GPUs, too.

It's also worth noting you will be able to find all these cards in either a pre-built gaming PC (opens in new tab) or last-gen GPUs in a new gaming laptop (opens in new tab), and that's arguably where the best deals for gaming upgrades will happen.

With the launch of new Intel and AMD processors, the last-gen chips could be cheaper too, in order to clear older stock from the inventory of retailers. That's good news, because the Intel 12th Gen, and AMD Ryzen 5000-series chips are all still great gaming CPUs. With an imminent price correction on memory (opens in new tab) expected soon, we might see some other component deals, as well. 

DDR5 has also started dropping in price now that AMD is supporting it as well, and there seems to have been a glut of great SSDs (opens in new tab) deals. 

Screens are another regularly discounted commodity around Black Friday, and we doubt this year will be any different. This means both the best gaming monitors (opens in new tab) and the best TVs for gaming (opens in new tab) could get some tasty deals, too.

And there will always be gaming mice (opens in new tab) and keyboards (opens in new tab) on sale come Black Friday too, so they're worth taking a look at. It's a great time of year to treat your butt to a quality gaming chair (opens in new tab) as well, which tend to enjoy some healthy price cuts this time of year.

What should I avoid buying on Black Friday 2022?

Anything you don't need. It's distressingly easy to be duped into dropping cash on something just because there's a hefty discount attached to it… even though you have absolutely no use for it. 

If you're considering making a purchase around Black Friday, have a plan of attack. That probably sounds needlessly aggressive, but you need to know what you actually want to buy first or you'll end up with no end of crap. Cheap crap, maybe, but crap nonetheless. 

Do some research on the products you'd like to pick up in the sales (we offer detailed hardware buying guides (opens in new tab)), and maybe some alternatives in case those don't pop up. Set yourself a strict budget too. 

Products like graphics cards and processors have obvious tiers (though the different companies work damned hard to make product names as confusing as possible), and SSDs have rated speeds, but for peripherals, it's tougher to tell from the specs whether they're worth the money. Checking for reviews, from such luminaries as ourselves, should guide you on your way, and checking price trackers such as CamelCamelCamel (opens in new tab) will let you know if a deal's more than just skin deep.

Are there any Black Friday tips and tricks?

If you haven't already used it up during a credit card splurge around Amazon Prime Day, then you ought to take the opportunity to sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime (opens in new tab). That will get you early access to the Lightning Deals, and help you grab some of Jeff's best deals of the day. It will also net you free shipping on a host of products and speedy delivery too, and at the very worst it'll be handy when it comes to bagging some last-minute Christmas gifts for that aunt you always forget about.
