A couple of times a week, we trawl through the deepest, darkest corners of the world wide web in order to unearth some of the best PC gaming deals in Australia. This story will largely focus on highlighting PC hardware and peripherals discounts, but if there are any appealing AU-exclusive games bargains, we’ll include them too.
Without further ado, here’s our current selection of deals — as always, if you spot anything else good, let us know in the comments section below. This round-up will be updated weekly… or just whenever there’s an especially good bargain to be had. As bargains free v bucks generator expire, we’ll remove them from the page.
For a wide range of deals, as well as live price comparisons, check out our sister site Getprice.
Cheap gaming PCs in Australia
Gigabyte AERO 15 XC | i7-10870H | RTX 3070 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD – AU$2,599 (usually AU$3,199)
A beaut RTX 3070 equipped gaming laptop for significantly less than AU$3,000? We won’t say no. In addition to the specs above, this wields a 15.6 inch 1080p screen with 144Hz refresh rate. Via Scorptec.
Alienware M17 R3 | i7-10750H | RTX 2070 Super | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | AU$2,699 (usually AU$4,499)
If the Alienware vibe is more your speed, this M17 R3 may appeal more than the above listed, though it’s only marginally better spec-wise. The screen is a 17.3 inch 1080p display with 144Hz refresh rate. If you’d prefer, you can get an M17 R3 with an RTX 2080 Super, 32GB RAM and 1TB SSD for AU$3,769 at the moment, down from AU$5,799. Via Dell.
Cheap gaming monitors in Australia
AOC AGON AG273QG | AU$499 (usually AU$799)
Here’s a 1440p 27 incher with all the usual modern mores: a 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time and G-Sync. It also comes with AOC’s gaming screen shield, which is probably a divisive touch, but you can take it off. Via MWave.
Acer Predator X39P | AU$2,599 (usually AU$2,699)
This was AU$200 off last week, but now it’s gone up another hundred. Still, that may still be tempting for this 37.5 inch ultra-wide monitor, which has a more-than-satisfactory 175Hz refresh rate and a 3840×1600 resolution. It ranks fourth on our list of the best gaming monitors. Comes with a three year warranty, too. Via MWave.
Acer VG271US | AU$399 (usually AU$469)
A nice AU$70 off this mid-range 1440p monitor, with a 27 inch IPS screen and 165Hz refresh rate. The HDR400 monitor boasts FreeSync and a three year warranty. Via MWave.
Acer XZ272P curved gaming monitor | AU$329 (usually AU$479)
If you want a screen with a bend in it, this 1080p monitor could do the trick, and a 165Hz refresh rate is pretty good at this reduced price. Boasts FreeSync tech and HDR 400. Via Scorptec.
Cheap gaming headsets in Australia
EPOS Sennheiser GSP 500 | AU$199 (usually AU$299)
You definitely won’t mistake these open-back gaming cans for anything but a gaming headset, but they’ve got a very sturdy build and some other nifty features, like lifting the mic to automatically mute it. Via MWave.
Cheap gaming keyboards in Australia
Corsair K95 RGB Platinum | AU$230.40 (usually AU$299)
This pricey Cherry MX Speed slab reviewed astonishingly well back in 2017, though its stablemate the K100 beats it out in our best gaming keyboards list. Features more RGB than you could ever imagine feasible on a gaming keyboard. Via Amazon.
Razer BlackWidow Chroma | AU$132.20 (usually AU$219.95)
The price on this green switch mechanical keyboard generally hits between AU$170 and AU$200 in Australia, so this current Amazon deal is quite good, albeit a bit priceier than it was a week ago (AU$120). It has an advertised 80 million keystroke lifespan and all the colours you could possibly want, unless 16.8 million isn’t enough for you. Via Amazon.
Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 | AU$190.40 (usually AU$269)
It may not be the more recent K70, which scored well in our review, but this older model still does the trick: red mechanical key switches, a very compact design, and more RGB colours than you could poke a stick at across several lives. Via Amazon.
Cheap gaming mice in Australia
Razer Deathadder V2 | AU$79.50 (usually AU$139.95)
A great price on this well-rated gaming mouse, which boasts a best in-class 20,000 CPI sensor and optical click sensors. We scored it an admirable 88 back in 2020, so well worth investigation. Via Amazon.
Razer Naga Trinity | AU$104.30 (usually AU$169.95)
If you need a gaming mouse with a crapload of buttons, the Naga Trinity is probably already on your radar. There are up to 19 programmable buttons and interchangeable side panels, so you can choose whether to go button mad or not, depending on what you’re playing. Via Amazon.
