Best Black Friday PC gaming deals 2023: the best discounts still available

Black Friday deals

Black Friday is over, long live Cyber Monday. The best deals on PC gaming hardware are now live over in our Cyber Monday PC gaming deals page, though we've given this Black Friday page one last update just to be sure. Don't worry, there are still plenty of worthwhile sales on top products we love.

Budget-conscious PC gamers can do themselves a favor by waiting for Black Friday and Cyber Monday PC gaming deals before grabbing a new SSD, replacing their mouse, or buying anything big, like a laptop or complete set of new PC components. This is the time of year when prices are at their lowest for all manner of component or peripheral.

The first rule of this list: no junk. We spend our weeks testing the latest products to see if they're worthy of our PC gaming setups, and we're putting all that knowledge to work during this Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales season to recommend the best stuff you can buy. If we don't think it's any good, we're not going to recommend it just because it's on sale.

The second rule: real deals only. It can be hard to sort out the deals from the "deals" during these big sale events, so we're checking price histories and selecting only genuinely decent—or exceptional, when we find them—discounts on PC gaming stuff. 

Our goal: Save you from having to trawl though pages of bad products and not-actually-deals on Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg yourself.
