cheap gaming pc deals - october 2021

© Provided by GamesRadar Cheap gaming PC deals

Cheap gaming PC deals are the best way to experience all the benefits of the platform such as better graphics than consoles, endless backwards compatibility, and more specific control for certain types of games. 

The best cheap gaming PC retailers: 

US: Best Buy | Dell | Amazon | Walmart | Newegg | Adorama UK: Amazon | Currys | Overclockers UK | LaptopsDirect | Argos

Unfortunately for many PC gamers, and builders like ourselves, the newest graphics cards are near-impossible to secure, as knowing where to buy RTX 3080, as well as finding RTX 3070 stock and RTX 3060 Ti stock is extremely difficult right now. That's why taking the prebuilt route is preferable to the (seemingly) endless component search. 

As expected, no matter how cheap you go with gaming PCs, you aren't going to be able to build or buy a rig that can hold its own with the Xbox Series X or PS5 for the same price. That's not to say that you can't find an outstanding rig for well under $1,000/£1,000 though.

Given the serious impact on technology manufacturing due to the ongoing pandemic, many prebuilt gaming PCs are running the previous generation of RTX ray-tracing capable cards, such as the RTX 2070, as well as budget GPUs like the GTX 1650 and 1660 Super, video cards that you're sure to see often, but are more than competent for Full HD at moderate settings most of the time at the very least (depending on the game). 

We update this page often, so if there's something below that doesn't quite spark a fire in your heart, swing by again soon for a new host of stellar cheap gaming PC deals. Also, if you're looking for something in a smaller form factor, then our picks for some excellent cheap gaming laptop deals are bound to be more for you.
