Forget the PlayStation 5, build the gaming PC of your dreams with these Cyber Monday sales
This console generation, I finally came to a decision–that I was going to focus on PC gaming. I’ve always been a console gamer, but it’s easier to get into PC gaming than ever before, and most titles That I’m interested in get released on Steam or Epic Games Store in a better format than a console game, anyway. The only prohibitive nature of PC gaming can be the cost of building one yourself. But, well, it is Cyber Monday. There are a bunch of PC part Cyber Monday sales, so now’s the time to start compiling your parts to build your own awesome gaming PC.
In fact, Amazon is having a whole Build-a-PC sale just for Cyber Monday:
Amazon’s PC part Cyber Monday deals will definitely give you most of what you need to get your PC build going. There is the really nice Thermaltake V250 Mid-Tower, which will hold everything you need for your build easily, and with plenty of room to disperse heat. Speaking of, the Cooler Mater SickleFlow fans are also a part of this sale. At $10 apiece, with these fans you can make sure your PC won’t have a meltdown.
Amazon is missing one particular PC part for its Cyber Monday sales, though… an internal SSD! Sure, a hard drive can work and it’s good to have a backup hard drive in your rig for storage, but you’ll want your OS and important applications running on a solid-state drive. Trust me on this! Thankfully, you can pick yourself an SSD from Best Buy. They aren’t having a specific PC part Cyber Monday sale, but that doesn’t mean you can’t save on what you need!
Finally, you’re putting all this time and effort into building a great gaming PC–don’t hook it up to a crappy monitor! Get a monitor this new rig deserves, like the Samsung 49-inch ultrawide QLED gaming monitor. It’s a really, really impressive monitor that’s currently down to $1,000. This isn’t an offer exclusive to Cyber Monday, but there’s no telling when it’ll go back to MSRP or its more typical sales price of $1,100.
