Shopping for bargains? Try these stores
Last updated: January 29, 2021.
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.

Gigabyte Aorus 5 | i7-10750H | RTX 2060 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD – AU$1,999
A smidgeon under two grand for an RTX gaming laptop is definitely not to be ignored — some retailers are selling the GTX 1660 Ti model of the Gigabyte Aorus 5 for only AU$200 cheaper than this. This model boasts a 15.6 inch display with 144Hz refresh rate. Via Mwave.View Deal
Dell G7 17 | i7-10750H | RTX 2070 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD – AU$1,952.06 (usually AU$2,999)
A brilliant saving on this 17 inch, 1080p gaming laptop, but take note that you’ll need to use the coupon code LOVEKEANU for this price. Without the coupon it’s still discounted to the tune of AU$2,098, but why pay more? Via Dell.View Deal
