(Image credit: Tom's Hardware)

Even if it's not a holiday, there are great deals on PC hardware all year round and we're here to find them. That's why Tom's Hardware scours the web every day for the best sales on components (CPUs, SSDs, RAM, GPUs), peripherals (monitors, keyboads, mice) and prebuilt PCs (laptops and desktops). 

Below, we've listed our favorite tech deals right now, along with some tips you can use to identify deals on your own.

Quick Deal Tips

We've checked these deals to make sure they offer solid savings. But whenever you're shopping, keep in mind:

  • Check price history: Not every so-called deal is actually a real discount. Some products on sale are actually cheaper on other sites and others were raised in price just to lower them again. Use PCPartPicker (best for components), CamelCamelCamel (best for Amazon) or Google Shopping to review price history and competitors.
  • Ensure upgrades are compatible: If you're buying RAM or storage, make sure your PC is upgradeable and has room for those components. You can check your manufacturer's service manual or use Crucial's System Adviser to make sure.
  • Pay a little more for trusted brands: Sometimes you'll see a key product like an SSD on sale from a brand you've never heard of. It's worth the few extra bucks to go with something that's well supported from a manufacturer you can trust.
