While the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch have a healthy combined player base, it can’t quite compete with the sheer number of gamers that use their PC as a gaming rig. There are many positives to PC gaming beyond the ability to upgrade the PC itself to keep it up-to-date over a number of years, including a range of bespoke PC gaming accessories and, of course, a plethora of games that are cheaper than console counterparts.

With Black Friday behind us and Christmas sales in full swing, we’re busy collecting the best deals related to PC gaming, whether it’s an amazingly cheap gaming keyboard or a new gaming laptop to give you that high-end gaming experience you’ve been longing for.

Keep reading to find out some of the best money-saving PC gaming deals right now, along with where you should be looking for great deals this December.  

In terms of PC gaming, the best deals are mainly focused on accessories. Expect to find discounts on not only gaming keyboards but headsets, mice, speakers and even gaming monitors to improve your PC gaming setup.

It’s also a good time for those looking to upgrade to buy a replacement gaming PC or laptop, as the likes of Amazon and Currys PC World often feature discounted gaming rigs, but generally speaking, the hardware deals are never as tempting as the discounts offered on peripherals. You’ve also got the option of upgrading your gaming PC yourself by picking up a discount SSD or a new GPU.
