Shopping for bargains? Try these stores
Last updated: May 7.
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 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
Dell G5 gaming desktop | i7-10700F | RTX 3060 Ti | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | AU$2,024 (usually AU$2,699)
If you’re after an RTX 3060 Ti build and couldn’t be bothered building it yourself (not to mention hunting the components yourself) then you may be pleased to receive AU$675 off this ready-to-go desktop PC. Via Dell.View Deal
New Alienware Aurora R12 gaming desktop | i7 11700F | RTX 3060 Ti | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | AU$2,474 (usually AU$3,299)
The specs on this may not measure up to the Dell listed above, but it definitely looks a heck of a lot fancier, and the CPU is better. Just look at those pleasant alien blue lights. If you’re after an RTX 3080 model, that one will set you back AU$3,989 (down from AU$5,699) at the moment, with an i9 11900F. Via Dell.View Deal
Alienware M15 R4 gaming laptop | i7-10870H | RTX 3060 Ti | 16GB RAM | 512SSD | AU$2,719 (usually AU$3,399)
In addition to the specs above, this flash gaming laptop has a 1080p screen with a blistering 300Hz refresh rate. These M15 R4s are seriously elegant bits of kit, so it’s worth consideration. Via Dell.View Deal
Alienware M17 R3 | i7-10750H | RTX 2070 Super | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | AU$2,999 (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.

Cheap gaming monitors in Australia
ASUS TUF VG279QM | AU$495 (usually AU$699)
A little over AU$200 savings on this 27 inch HD monitor which boasts HDR and a 240Hz refresh rate, which can be overclocked to 280Hz if you fancy it. It’s not currently in stock but Amazon reckons it’ll be dispatched within 1 to 3 weeks. Via Amazon.View Deal
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.View Deal
Acer XZ272P curved gaming monitor | AU$279 (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.View Deal
Cheap gaming headsets in Australia
Razer Kraken Ultimate | AU$139.30 (usually ~AU$170)
This stylish set of cans sells anywhere between AU$160 and AU$220 locally, so this is a decent price. This pair has THX 7.1 spatial surround sound and, yeah, the usual Chroma RGB lighting so you can look like a fancy robot. Via Amazon.View Deal
Cheap gaming keyboards in Australia
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.View Deal
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.View Deal
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.View Deal
