There are still Cyber Monday gaming PC deals for anyone out there looking, with plenty of last-gen stock being sold off at varying levels of discount. You just need to find the right deal. On the one hand there are prebuilt PCs with still-relevant gaming hardware for a great price, but on the other there are over-priced systems with weak specs lists baiting the unsuspecting buyer. 

That's why we're here, constantly casting our eyes over what all the major retailers have to offer the discerning gaming PC purchaser and making sure we only pick the best offers for you lovely folk. We want to help you find a great PC at a great discount.

The key element to look for when buying a pre-built PC at this time of year will be delivery date, especially if you want it to arrive before Christmas. Some PCs may be heavily discounted but not actually ship until next year (which is fine, if you don't mind the wait). Before you buy, make sure to double-check when your new PC is actually due to arrive.

There are plenty of gaming PC deals that will arrive far quicker than that, if you don't feel the need to customize them. The iBuyPower RDY prebuilt systems (opens in new tab) can ship in a matter of days, and will still get you some of the best CPU and GPU combinations you can find today.

This year we've been especially focused on finding the best gaming PC deals with RTX 3060s, 3070s, and 3080s, and figuring out which offer the best value. For a better idea of what prices are good (and which aren't) check out this crib sheet on gaming PC pricing. If you just want the deals we recommend right now, take a look for both US and UK deals below.

Ipason gaming desktop | Ryzen 5 5600G | 16GB RAM | 500GB SSD | $849.99 $509.99 at Newegg (save $340) (opens in new tab)
It's a stretch to call this one a true gaming PC, if I'm being totally honest, but hear me out. There are some great Cyber Monday 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 with. All you need is a GPU. Pick up an RX 6650 XT (opens in new tab) on offer and you'll have a full rig for less than $800.

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

Lenovo IdeaCentre Gaming 5i | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $899.99 at Best Buy (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 $899, 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. 

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 $922.49 at Amazon (save $207.50) (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, to be honest, and with this discount you can afford to update your SSD later  down the line.

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 $1,249.99 at Dell (save $400) (opens in new tab)
Packing some tasty DDR5 RAM, this Dell comes with a great CPU/GPU combo that wont break a sweat 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 longer load times.

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

iBuyPower TraceMR Gaming Desktop | Nvidia RTX 3070 | Intel i7 12700F | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD| $1,449.99 $1,249.99 at Best Buy (save $300) (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 the needs of most games right now. This deal is a lovely package and one of the better value battle stations you can pick up today.

SkyTech Archangel (opens in new tab)

Skytech Archangel 3.0 | Nvidia RTX 3070 | Intel i7 12700F | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD| $1,799.99 $1,299.99 at Newegg (save $480) (opens in new tab)
Here be a fantastic saving on a gaming PC that just wont quit. It's well below the soft cap we set in our guide on how to spot the best gaming PC deals (opens in new tab), and it even goes above and beyond with a nice chunk of 1TB SSD storage. Not bad for that price.

HP Omen | AMD RX 6700 XT | AMD Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,649.99 (opens in new tab)

HP Omen | AMD RX 6700 XT | AMD Ryzen 7 5700G | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,649.99 $1,299.99 at Best Buy (save $350) (opens in new tab)
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 such strong core specs.

MSI Trident 3 (opens in new tab)

MSI MPG Trident | Nvidia RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 12700F | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $2,099.99 $1,549.99 at Newegg (save $550) (opens in new tab)
A very current machine here that'll deliver the goods 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 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.

iBUYPOWER TraceMR | Nvidia RTX 3080 | Intel Core i7 12700KF | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | $1,849.99 $1,649.99 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 impressive package for the price.

Alienware Aurora R14 | AMD RX 6800 XT | Ryzen 7 5800X | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $2,399.99 (opens in new tab)

Alienware Aurora R14 | AMD RX 6800 XT | Ryzen 7 5800X | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD | $2,399.99 $1,799.99 at Dell (save $600) (opens in new tab)
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.

CyberPowerPC Gamer Infinity XLC | RTX 4080 | Core i9 13900K | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $3,219 (opens in new tab)

CyberPowerPC Gamer Infinity XLC | RTX 4080 | Core i9 13900K | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $3,219 $2,979 at CyberPowerPC (save $335) (opens in new tab)
The glorious-looking Hyte Y60 case 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 drive. There's also a 1,000W PSU with a 16-pin power connector, so hopefully less chance of an adapter melting your rig...

CyberPowerPC Battlebox 2022 Ultimate | RTX 4080 | Ryzen 9 7900X | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $3,329 (opens in new tab)

CyberPowerPC Battlebox 2022 Ultimate | RTX 4080 | Ryzen 9 7900X | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $3,329 $2,949 at CyberPowerPC (save $380) (opens in new tab)
Here comes another 4080-based machine. Alongside the latest Nvidia card is a fantastic CPU offering from the red team, and 32GB of DDR5-6000 memory. That 1TB SSD is a full PCIe 4.0 option, which is always appreciated. Time to have a conversation with your bank manager.

Cyber Monday gaming PC deals in the UK

OcUK Gaming Kalis | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | AMD Ryzen 5 5500 | 16GB RAM | 480GB SSD | £968.79 (opens in new tab)

OcUK Gaming Kalis | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | AMD Ryzen 5 5500 | 16GB RAM | 480GB SSD | £968.79 £913.95 at Overclockers (save £ 54.84) (opens in new tab)
The base form of this rig comes with an RTX 3060 for £849.95, which isn't a bad price for the spec, but for £64 more you can score an RTX 3060 Ti. That's a pretty fair price bump for the RTX 3060 Ti, and since that's a card we absolutely love, it's well worth the upgrade in our eyes. The rest of this rig is a great starter PC build, though the 480GB SSD is a little slim. But you could always add another SSD easily and cheaply down the line.

Acer Predator Orion 3000 | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | Intel Core i5 12400 | 16GB RAM | 1TB HDD | 256GB NVMe SSD | £1,179.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer Predator Orion 3000 | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | Intel Core i5 12400 | 16GB RAM | 1TB HDD | 256GB NVMe SSD | £1,179.99 £1,079.99 at Ebuyer (save £100) (opens in new tab)
Here we have a nice entry-level gaming PC, with a last gen CPU/GPU combo. It's not the greatest when it comes to storage, though if you only play a few, smaller games and aren't too worried about HDD speeds in 2022, this is still a fairly good shout.

CyberpowerPC Ultra 55 | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | AMD Ryzen 5 5500 | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | £1,299 (opens in new tab)

CyberpowerPC Ultra 55 | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | AMD Ryzen 5 5500 | 16GB RAM | 1TB NVMe SSD | £1,299 £1,050 at CyberpowerPC (save £249) (opens in new tab)
Shipping the day after purchase, the Ultra 55 doesn't come with the most up to date CPU around, but this is still a great buy. An RTX 3060 Ti machine topped by 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, ain't bad and although the Kingston PCIe SSD isn't the speediest, 1TB is much appreciated. You even get Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, and Warhammer 40k: Darktide Imperial Edition with it.

| AMD Ryzen 5 5600 |  16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,329.98 (opens in new tab)

Scan Gaming PC | Nvidia RTX 3070 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600 |  16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,329.98 £1,269.88 at Scan (save £60) (opens in new tab)
The RTX 3070 is a great graphics card that we wish we could find on its own for a competitive price. At least you can buy it in a gaming PC at a decent price, and surrounded by a modern CPU, plenty of RAM, and 1TB of storage space.

When is Cyber Monday 2022?

Cyber Monday is set for November 28, 2022, trawling Black Friday like a lovesick puppy. The temptation is to look at Cyber Monday like the unwanted sibling of Black Friday, with just the dregs left on offer. But while it's still going to be tough to get the goods shipped ahead of Christmas, retailers will often have a stock of great deals set aside for Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday also kicks off Cyber Week, where you may find a bunch of other deals on PC hardware to stretch out the sales season.

What should I look for in a Cyber Monday gaming PC deal?

We've got a handy crib sheet to help you spot whether a gaming PC is really a deal (opens in new tab), so that's well worth checking out. 

This Cyber Monday is going to be a great time to get an Nvidia RTX 3050, RTX 3060, or RTX 3070-powered gaming PC or AMD equivalent. You should be keeping an eye out for the lower-end of Nvidia's 30-series moreso, but if you're desperate for a machine that can smash 4K we recommend skipping over the 30-series altogether and waiting for Nvidia's 40-series graphics cards to go down in price.

System builders such as iBuypower also have their own prebuilt systems that are ready to roll out of the shop quicker than custom designs. These iBuypower RDY systems (opens in new tab) can be with you in a matter of days, when other machines might take weeks, or even months to arrive. Basically, be aware that a custom machine may not arrive in time for Christmas.

Last-gen machines just aren't as tempting as they were last year, either. At least not for the same money. All this last-gen kit doesn't just miraculously disappear though, retailers and system builders need to sell it to make some money back. And while there's nothing wrong with machines built around Zen 2, Intel 10th and 11th Gen CPUs, and Nvidia RTX 2080s if the price is right, make sure you don't pay over the odds being blinded by the rest of the spec.

As ever when hunting for bargains, focus on what you need, and don't be swayed to grab a bargain just because something's cheap.
