While we love building PCs (especially the best PC builds), sometimes it’s more convenient or even cheaper to buy a prebuilt desktop. The good news is that, with the holiday shopping season in full swing we're seeing retailers try to clear out inventory and up their bottom lines, to your benefit.
On any given day this holiday season, you may see gaming PC deals on a variety of systems, ranging from budget rigs with GTX 1660 cards for less than $700, to RTX-enabled systems for far less than $1,500, or even models that are on par with the best gaming PCs.
That’s why we’re collecting the best deals on gaming PCs below. If you're more interested in building your own PC or upgrading what you have, see our lists of best tech deals overall, best computer monitor deals or best holiday SSD deals.
If you prefer a laptop for gaming, we're also following the best holiday laptop deals.
