PC gaming deals with Amazon Prime Early Access - day2

Prospect hardware purchasers will receive a second and final day of the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale. Like Prime Day, this sale requires a Prime membership to access all of the finest deals, but so far those have included some tempting savings on some quality PC gaming kit. It therefore offers a great opportunity to replace any worn-out peripherals or make a component upgrade, especially if it can''t wait until Black Friday 2022. Ive collected a few dozen of the popular deals from Amazon UK and Amazon United.

If you don''t have an Amazon Prime membership, you can also enroll for the Primes 30-day free trial, but be quick, as the Prime Early Access Sale closes at midnight tonight. There''s more on this workaround, and everything you need to know in our Prime Early Access Sale FAQ, and if you want some advice on how to get the best Prime Early Access deals, there are many options to you.

Because this is Amazon''s new shindig, and therefore isn''t quite as big a deal as Prime Day, don''t expect any directly competing sales from competitors, but if you stick with Amazon then there are a few very decent deals to grab. As an example, filtering out the clutter and highlighting only the genuine good-value offers on PC gaming hardware that doesn''t suck.

The best early Prime Early Access PC deals are today.

Best SSD and storage deals

Some of the best SSDs for gaming are going cheap in this sale, as are the best microSD cards for the Steam Deck. WD Blue SN570 remains a stalwart low-budget option, while PCIe 4.0 drives like the WD Black SN850 dramatically increase read and write speeds. If youe adding capacity to your rig rather than replacing an existing drive, make sure you have space for it in a spare M.2 slot or with empty SATA ports and 2.5in drive mounts.

The Asus ROG Swift PG259QN purchase from yesterday has gone to Ecommerce Heaven, so stepping in are a few quality Samsung Odyssey monitors and the unexpectedly powerful MateView monitors from Huawei.

Best gaming mouse deals

Other than some reasonably low Logitech deals in the United Kingdom, this Prime Early Access offer is a spooky event. Over in the United States, the Basilisk V3 - a brilliant all-rounder - and the Naga Trinity, one of the best gaming mice for MMOs.

The excellent Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless TKL keyboard has been reduced to a far greater affordable 107. There are also a couple of premium membrane keyboards for discounts, including the sturdy and spill-resistant SteelSeries Apex 3 TKL.

Best graphics card deals

Even with the Nvidia RTX 40 series and AMD RDNA 3 GPUs approaching, most of today''s best graphics cards are still RTX 30 series models, and some of today''s higher-end models are seeing decent discounts on Amazons sale. Ive found a cheap RTX 2060, which might suit you if you dont need the latest and greatest 1440p/4K performance but want affordable access to DLSS and ray tracing.

Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge OC - $400 (was $530)

Best RAM deals

I was hoping for a more diverse spectrum of memory deals in this sale. However, Crucials'' simple-branded DDR5 memory might be an ideal choice for Intel 12th Gen or Ryzen 7000 PC builds. Especially the latter AMD CPUs, which are compatible with DDR5, not DDR4.

Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR4 16GB (2x8GB) - 70 (was 107)

Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR4 32GB (2x16GB) - 117 (was 134)

Crucial DDR5 16GB - 64 (was 87)

Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR4 32GB (2x16GB) - $108 (was $127)

Best gaming laptop deals

There are a few entry-level gaming laptops on sale right now, some of them costing less than a single mid-range graphics card, and you have options available if you''d prefer something faster. The Razer Blade 14, for example, is a powerful combination of power and portability, and the MSI Raider GE66 - with its RTX 3070 Ti - is 100 less than it was on the first day of the sale.

Prime Early Access Sale FAQ

Mini Prime Day is basically being sold out on tens of thousands of items, including some fantastic PC gaming hardware, but the only way to get these lower rates is by a Prime membership.

The Prime Early Access Sale will be available for free on October 11th and 12th, and technically it''s true, although when exact the event begins and ends will vary by time zone in the UK. In the United Kingdom, the sale began at 12am PDT on October 11th, whereas in the United States, it began eight hours later.

On October 12, the Prime Early Access Sale will end at 11:59pm. Which means that wherever you are, it will be cancelled, as it will only take place in 15 countries: the United Kingdom, the United States, Austria, Canada, and Germany.

Yep, there will be no way around it, unfortunately. During the Prime Early Access Sale, there will almost certainly be other discounts on PC gaming hardware, but these will be the ho-hum offerings that hover around Amazon normally. The biggest pricing cuts will be for Prime members only.

You can now be cheeky and enjoy a 30-day free trial for Primes; this will temporarily net you all of the benefits of a full membership, including access to the Prime Early Access Sale. There is no sign to cancelling after you have received your fill, provided you do so before the 30 free days are up. It will then cost 9 / $15 per month if you end up wanting to stick with your membership.

Good question - Black Friday will involve far more retailers, so in theory, you''ll have a better chance of finding what you want at an even lower price than during the Prime Early Access Sale. Again, you''re still taking a chance that a specific item will be on sale during Black Friday at any time, never mind it being cheaper. Do you play it safe and buy it now instead?

I say that it depends on the size of the discount. Yes, if you want a 100 headset that is only 5 off during Prime Early Access, then it''s probably better to wait and try your luck on Black Friday. However, if its, say, 50 off right now, the strength of that contract arguably outweighs the possibility that it will become somewhat cheaper again in November.

How to Get the Best Deals in Prime Early Access

You''ve already completed a good start by following this guide; only the finest deals around here, mmm, yes. I''ll also be updating it throughout the two days of the sale, so if there''s nothing you like right now, there might be something more to your tastes later. All without having to go trawling through Amazon listings yourself.

I''ve mentioned these three sales events in a row, but the Keepa browser extension is excellent at preventing you from going too far before a big sale, then dropping them back down to give you an advantage. Keepa gives you a clear advantage by adding a price tracking calculator to every Amazon listing you see. This will indicate if the sale price is the real deal, or if it is returning to normal pricing following a few fluctuations.

These kinds of sales are often useful tools to save money on items you would want to buy anyway dont get carried away by blowing cash on hardware you wont make the most of. Always remember what you need and how much you''re willing to spend.

If you''re seeking to find something specific, consider making use of the links on the Prime Early Access page; these will rid you of the many, many listings you''re not interested in, and allow you to focus on other items more easily.
