Shopping for bargains? Try these stores
Last updated: February 22, 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.
Cheap gaming laptops in Australia
Razer Blade 15 | i7-10750H | RTX 2070 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD – AU$2,499 (usually AU$3,599)
This is a bloody good price for one of Razer’s very classy (and very versatile) Blade laptops. These excel at doubling as work laptops, while secretly harbouring the grunt to run games at high settings. Via Mwave.View Deal
Alienware M17 R3 | i7-10750H | RTX 2070 Super | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD – AU$3,149 (usually AU$4,499)
This was AU$900 off last week but now it’s AU$1,350, much to the chagrin of anyone who purchased it. In addition to the above specs, boasts a 17.3 inch 1080p monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate and G-Sync. There’s also a higher-specced version of the M17 R3 going, with an RTX 2080 Super, 32GB RAM and a 1TB SSD for AU$4,479 (usually AU$6,399). Via Dell.View Deal
MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFSK | i7 10750H | RTX 2070 Super | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | AU$2,399 (usually AU$3,299)
This powerful gaming laptop is going for up to AU$3,299 elsewhere. If you’re after a ray tracing capable gaming laptop, a bit over AU$2,000 for the privilege isn’t too bad – though you’ll probably want to be keen on MSI’s overall aesthetic.View Deal
Cheap gaming monitors in Australia
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.View Deal
Gigabyte G27QC 27 inch | AU$379 (usually AU$499)
A 27 inch QHD monitor with 165Hz is a bit of a steal at this price, though that depends whether you’re into the whole curved thing or not. Via Scorptec.View Deal
Asus ROG Strix XG438Q 43 inch | AU$1,449 (usually AU$1,599)
If you’re eager for a huge 4K monitor with a good refresh rate you’re probably going to pay through the nose. This 120Hz FreeSync 2 HDR monitor is currently AU$150 at MWave and is well worth a look if you like it big. Via MWave.View Deal
Samsung LC27RG50FQEXXY | AU$389 (usually AU$429)
This elegantly titled 1080p curved G-sync monitor boasts 27 inches of 240Hz refresh rate action. See, we can write sentences as elegant as the name of this monitor. Via MWave.View Deal
Cheap gaming headsets in Australia
Logitech G332 wired headset | AU$69.41 (usually AU$83.59)
A decent discount on this UK import on Amazon, which normally sells for anywhere up to AU$99 locally. Boasts 50mm audio drivers, onboard mic and volume control and a pretty decent design, as far as these things go. Via Amazon.View Deal
SteelSeries Arctis 1 wireless | AU$157.57 (usually AU$199)
This wireless 4-in-1 wireless gaming headset is “4-in-1” because it comes with a USB-C dongle that adds compatibility with consoles. If you have, say, a Nintendo Switch and want one headset for both, this is worth investigation. Usually goes for around AU$175 in Australia. Via Amazon.
Cheap gaming keyboards in Australia
SteelSeries Apex 5 Hybrid | AU$143.76 (usually ~AU$180)
Some retailers sell this for up to AU$229, but usually it can be had for around AU$170. So this current Amazon price is good if you’re in the market for this model, which boasts hybrid mechanical switches, an OLED smart display and the usual smattering of fancy shiny colours. Via Amazon.View Deal
Razer BlackWidow Chroma | AU$157.53 (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
Cheap gaming mice in Australia
Razer Naga Trinity | AU$139 (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
