Amazon Prime Day has kicked off in Australia, running from now until the end of June 22. That's the official runtime anyhow: with deals from the UK and US also available, it's actually likely to run well into Wednesday, June 23.
Below you'll find the best deals we can find according to their category. We've done our best to make sure these are the very best prices you'll get at the moment, and importantly, this list will update over the course of the next few days. In the past, Amazon Prime Day in Australia has relied on UK and US imports to really bulk out the list of PC gaming related sales, and we don't expect 2021 to be any different.
As always, you'll need to have a Prime membership to full take advantage of most of the deep discounts you'll find this year. No worries: You can sign up for a free trial here, just make sure you cancel it before it rolls on.
Without further ado:
Amazon Prime Day PC component deals
Cooler Master MF120R A-RGB |
AU$78 AU$41 on Amazon
These are our third favourite PC fans for a reason: It can kit your tower out with some super-fancy RGB lighting on the cheap, and there’s “lots of airflow potential” according to our experts. This is a three-pack, but if you want more, they can be purchased separately.
Corsair iCUE LS100 smart lighting strip – 1.4 metres |
The phrase “let there be light” erroneously carries religious connotations, when actually it’s a reference to the number one truism in PC gaming: there is no such thing as too much fancy lighting in your rig. If you’re after a 1.4 metre extension to your Corsair iCUE lighting set up, here’s that—a little cheaper than usual.
Amazon Prime Day PC Peripherals deals
Oculus Quest 2 256GB |
AU$639 AU$579 at Amazon
This is our favourite VR headset, despite the requirement for a Facebook account. It’s a brilliant standalone device with great tech specs and a good price. With this Amazon Prime Day discount you can jump into VR at a lower price point, with some nice storage headroom to boot.
25 percent off EPOS gaming headsets |
AU$319 AU$217 at Amazon
Right now you can choose from a wide range of EPOS gaming headsets, all with a nice 25 percent off the usual price. These include the GSP 601, GSP 602, and the more budget-oriented GSP 300.
Corsair HS50 Pro gaming headset |
AU$85 AU$69 at Amazon
A nice ‘n’ simple stereo gaming headset for folk who don’t want things coming at them from all directions like some hellish fever dream. This usually sits just above the budget range, but with this discount you can get it a bit cheaper, and it’ll work on your consoles as well, if you’ve got ’em.
Corsair K95 RGB Platinum gaming keyboard |
A nice discount on this sturdy and flash Cherry MX Brown mechanical keyboard, which boasts per-key RGB backlighting and an extremely classy band of aesthetic excess along the top. Has six macro keys.
Elgato HD60 S capture card |
This is our favourite capture card for PC gaming, on account of its excellent capture quality, considering the price point. Captures up to 60fps at 1080p, with USB 3.0 connectivity. The built-in software is easy to use, as well.
