How much should you pay for a gaming PC on Amazon Prime Day?

The coveted discount event from the world’s largest online retailer is less than a week away, with the Amazon Prime Day PC deals taking place on July 12th and 13th. As in previous years, the question remains as to how much you really should be paying a day for a gaming PC. Well, since the platform offers many different options for budget, mid-range, and enthusiast machines, that answer depends entirely on what you want your new rig to do for you in 2022.

This is where we come in. Not only do we have years of experience with some of the best gaming PCs, we’ve also tracked favorite models and components on the day itself. With so many different brands out there, it can be a bit of a minefield for the uninitiated, as nobody wants to be tricked into investing in a machine with aging hardware, or paying the odds for something that doesn’t quite work what you want.

We’re here to help you find the right gaming PC for you ahead of Prime Day, so you can be sure you’ll have a top performer for years to come. We also considered builds of all specs and hardware relevance, from the top brands to the boutique builders we’ve had hands-on experience with.
