Cyber Monday 2018 PC deals – AMD RX 580 8GB for £191, and a six-core Ryzen for £145

The Cyber Monday consumergasm continues, and these are our favourite PC component deals right now

Black Friday PC deals 2018

As sure as tick follows tock, Cyber Monday follows Black Friday. And, whatever your feelings about the now-yearly consumergasm, it’s potentially a great time to bag yourself some serious Cyber Monday PC deals… if you’re smart about it.

This whole Black Friday period is an exciting time to be PC tech enthusiast – it’s a great opportunity to find a bargain on that one component or peripheral you’ve been meaning to pick up all year, but finding the genuine deals in a mire of stock dumping nonsense can be tricky. And there’s also the fact it still feels a little dirty in that whole rampant-consumerism-gone-mad kinda way.

But we’re here to stop you from having to run the shopping gauntlet alone, or having to trawl the internet to find the best PC gaming deals – we’re doing that for you. Ain’t we good to you? Throughout today there will be various new Cyber Monday PC deals being dropped, and we’ll be keeping you up to date with them throughout the day. Who knows, there may also be some great deals still floating around from Black Friday too.

We’ve split out the Cyber Monday PC deals into different categories to help make it a little more manageable to navigate, and we’ll be surfacing what we think are the very best deals in each category right here.

Black Friday graphics card deals

Cyber Monday graphics card deals

After a horrible couple of years, where graphics card pricing has been brutalised by the bloody cryptocurrency gold rush, relative stability is coming back to the GPU world. Despite there being a collapse in demand from the miners, the graphics card makers had already started upping their manufacturing efforts, and that means there are a lot of cards sitting in the channels…

US DEALS


PowerColor RX 570 4GB Red Dragon | $140 – 22% off at Newegg

No rebates, just a powerful GPU for less than MSRP and, more importantly, less than the lower performing GTX 1050 Ti. A great budget graphics card.

Sapphire RX 570 4GB | $155 – 30% off at Amazon US
Once again Newegg outplays Amazon, but these deals could change quick, so having a back-up option is always worth it.

PowerColor Red Dragon RX 580 8GB | $190 – 42% off at Newegg
If you can spare a little more budget for your graphics card, the RX 580 is the best mainstream card going.

Sapphire AMD RX Vega 64 | $400 – 20% off at Newegg
Right now you can pick up AMD’s fully-equipped RX Vega 64 graphics card for the MSRP of its little sibling, the RX Vega 56.

 

UK deals


PowerColor RX 580 8GB | £191 – at Amazon UK

While most of the RX 580 cards have crept above $200 there are still a couple of cards around for a little less.

Sapphire Radeon RX 580 8GB | £207 – 28% off at Overclockers 
The 8GB RX 580 is our favourite graphics card right now, and this Sapphire version has a decent cooler and serious gaming performance to boot.

Asus GTX 1060 OC Edition | £220 – 16% off at Amazon
An overclocked GTX 1060 for only a little more than the price of an RX 580 isn’t a bad deal at all if you are hardened GeForce gamer.

EVGA GTX 1060 6GB  SC Gaming | £230 – 18% off at Scan
The GTX 1060 was our previous favourite mainstream GPU, and this is a good price for a small form factor version.

MSI GTX 1070 8GB Armor OC Ed | £330 – 15% off at Scan 
The new Turing cards may be out, but the cheapest of those is still £500, which makes this a decent price for a GTX 1070, especially for a card that is surprisingly capable at 4K.

Asus RX Vega 64 | £410 – 22% off at Scan
If you want the fastest GPU AMD has to offer right now, then the Vega 64 is that card. And at this price it’s as cheap as it’s likely to get.

Black Friday CPU deals

Cyber Monday CPU deals

Historically Intel chips don’t really get much in the way of price drops, whether around Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or ever. Just look at the way its chips still hold their value second-hand on Ebay. That said, the Core i5 8400 might just get a little reduction, so it could be worth keeping an eye on that one. But it’s the AMD Ryzen, particularly the first-gen chips, which are getting some serious price cuts.

US deals


AMD Ryzen 5 2600 | $160 – 20% off at Amazon US

It’s the top gaming CPU in our reckoning right now, and with its current price cuts that only makes for a more tantalising, overclockable, six-core prospect.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 | $160 – 14% off at Newegg
If the Amazon price goes up or stock vanishes the Newegg price is still a good shout for AMD’s excellent six-core CPU.

AMD Ryzen 7 1700X | $190 – at Newegg
Compared with its MSRP, this is an eight-core CPU at almost half its price. Actually its original MSRP was $100 more, making it less than half the price. Still a great chip at a fantastic price.

UK deals


AMD Ryzen 5 2600 | £145 – 20% off at Scan

Our favourite gaming CPU of the moment is a fantastic price right now – the same as Intel’s quad-core i3. It’s got 12-threads, is overclockable and a great price.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X | £150 – 40% off at Amazon UK 
Once the best gaming CPU around, only just replaced by the second-gen 2000-series Ryzen chips, the 1600X is a decent price right now.

AMD Ryzen 7 1700 | £145 – 47% off at Scan 
For just £5 more than the six-core 2600 you can upgrade to a full eight-core, 12-thread CPU. If you’re into your streaming or video editing that’s a bargain.

AMD Ryzen 3 1200 | £74 – 22% off at Scan
If you’re just after a budget CPU then the quad-core, four-thread Ryzen is a bargain right now, and is still overclockable even at this price.

Intel Core i7 8350K | £140 – 22% off at Scan 
The cheapest Coffee Lake gaming chip on the market still requires you to pick up a new motherboard, but the 8350K is an overclockable K-series with Intel’s gaming heritage.

Black Friday SSD deals

cyber monday SSD deals

We’re putting our money behind there being some considerable Black Friday/Cyber Monday SSD deals out and about this year.
