Amazon Prime Day is growing into the Black Friday of the summer, with many other sites and businesses joining the fun. The result is better prices on many popular PC components, and for those that have been holding off on building a new rig, it’s an excellent time to snap up some quality parts at a discount. We’ve built a complete gaming PC, including a mouse and keyboard, using our favorite Prime Day deals. We’ll keep updating the picks throughout Prime Day with the latest deals.
AMD Ryzen 7 2700 | $224.99, Amazon (save $74)
AMD’s second generation Ryzen parts are even better than the first round, and the 2700 comes with with a whopping 16 threads and a 4.1GHz max boost. It includes AMD’s Wraith Spire Cooler, performance is excellent for the price, and you can even overclock the chip (though we’d recommend a better cooler for that). View Deal
Corsair Obsidian 500D | $98.99, Newegg (save $41)
We’ve got two cases options, one that looks nice and one that saves money. The sexy choice is the Obsidian 500D, a sleek and solid mid-tower case with smoky tempered glass side panels. It’s the perfect way to show off your new PC’s components.View Deal
That’s nearly everything you need for your new high-end gaming PC build. The only thing missing is a display, and perhaps a desk and a chair as well. Most people already have those, but check out our Prime Day deals for additional picks in those areas. All told, we’ve assembled a PC for under $1,500. That’s a lot of money, but normally a PC of this caliber would cost more than $2,000, and it wouldn’t be any faster.
