Best Black Friday Newegg deals: the PC gaming gear we’ve found for less


Newegg is to PC gaming what Bed Bath & Beyond is to bed lining and food mixers. It's our go-to for PC parts, peripherals, and more. That's why it's a great place to look out for Black Friday deals, even half way into November, as Newegg's Black Friday deals festivities have well and truly begun.

Everyone's kicking off Black Friday early this year, it seems. That gives you ample opportunity to bag a deal, and with Newegg's Black Friday price protection, you aren't even at risk of being undercut later when the price plummets.

In fact, most of the deals we've outlined below fall under Newegg's Black Friday Price Protection plan.

What is Newegg’s Black Friday Price Protection?

Newegg’s Black Friday Price Protection takes the danger out of shopping early this Black Friday. If you purchase a product with the Black Friday Price Protection badge on it from October 14 to November 21, 2021, you’ll be automatically enrolled in the price protection scheme. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything, it just means if the price of that item decreases on or before November 30, 2021, Newegg will automatically refund you the difference to your payment method.

Best Newegg system deals

iBuyPower Trace5MR | Core i9 11900KF | RX 6900 XT | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $3499.99 $2,499.99 at Newegg (save $1,000)
This is a tasty pile of PC hardware for a great price. The RX 6900 XT is AMD’s most powerful GPU to date, and easily a match for the RTX 3080 in standard gaming performance. It’s also matched with a large chunk of memory, a high-end CPU, and a 1TB SSD.

ABS Master | Intel Core i5 11400F | Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,699.99 $1,499.99 at Newegg (save $200)
This isn’t quite as good a deal as the above Dell systems, but it does come with three free games from Intel and Nvidia. Plus it looks the part and comes with out of the box components, so some might prefer that to the more pre-built Dell systems above. Worth considering then, with a decent discount. 

Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR YD | Nvidia RTX 3080 | Intel Core i9 11980HK | 32GB RAM | 1TB + 512GB SSD | 4K IPS | $3,649.99 $2,749.99 after a rebate at Newegg (save $900)
This is worth making the most of considering it’s a machine with an RTX 3080, and 11th Gen Core i9 chip. That’s topped with a gorgeous 4K IPS screen, and boatloads of RAM—so great for multitasking any high-res antics. Plus lots of space to store all your games, and their high fidelity textures. This really is a steal for under $3,000, though.

Gigabyte Aorus 15P YD | Nvidia RTX 3080 | Intel Core i7 11800H | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,399 $1,949 at Newegg (save $450)
No immense 4K screens here, only 1080p, but who needs super high resolution when you can have speed? This RTX 3080 and Intel 11th Gen lappy is topped with a 300Hz panel and more ram than you could shake a… stick at. Right now, at under $2K, its worth a look.

Gigabyte Aorus 15P YD | Nvidia RTX 3080 | Intel Core i7 11800H | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,349.99 $1,899.99 at Best Buy (save $450)
This is an almost identical spec to the Gigabyte machine above, but comes in $50 cheaper thanks to the fact it’s rocking a 240Hz 1080p screen instead of a 300Hz option. If you feel you can tell the difference then spend the extra cash, if not, this is one of the most affordable RTX 3080 machines out there right now.

Gigabyte A5 X1 | 15.6-inch | Ryzen 9 5900HX | RTX 3070 | 1080p | 240Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,799 $1,599 at Newegg (save $200)
This is the cheapest RTX 3070-based machine we’ve found so far, and the rest of the package makes it one of the finest, too. The AMD CPU is an eight-core stunner and the 240Hz screen is a pro-move as well. Our only issue is the slightly miserly 512GB SSD.

Gigabyte G5 KC | 15.6-inch | Intel Core i5 10500H| Nvidia RTX 3060 | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,199 $999 after at Newegg (save $200)
We love an RTX 3060 gaming laptop with a discount, and for under $1,000, this is almost as good as it gets. That GPU and CPU combo will make for great 1080p, high-refresh gaming, and while there’s not a huge amount of storage, those can be easily upgraded. As can the battery, and you can even add in a HDD if you so fancy.

MSI GP66 Leopard | Nvidia RTX 3080 | Intel Core i7 11800H | GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,299 $1,799 with rebate at Newegg (save $500)
For a laptop with an RTX 3080 and 11th Gen Intel CPU, this is an absolute steal. Not only do you get a smashing 240Hz screen to cater for the sky-high framerates it’ll be pumping out, you also get a good amount of storage, too.

MSI GF65 Thin | 15.6-inch | Intel Core i7 10750H | Nvidia RTX 3060 | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB NVMe SSD | $1,299 $1,049 after $100 rebate at Newegg (save $200)
A decent CPU combined with an RTX 3060 for just over a grand, you can’t go wrong really. With a nippy 144Hz monitor, and 16GB of ram keeping it chugging along, you can bet it’ll see you right for most gaming as it’s been one of our favourites for a while. Plus, it’s eligible for Black Friday Price protection.

MSI GL66 | 15.6-inch | Intel Core i7 11800H | Nvidia RTX 3060  | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,499 $1,099 after rebate at Newegg (save $400)
We’ve two of the GL66 on this list: this one with an RTX 3060, and the one below with an RTX 3050 Ti. Of course, we like this model for its more powerful graphics, especially at only $100 more, but it also offers a decent array of specs to keep you gaming with high frame rates, including an eight-core/16-thread CPU. That’ll do wonders for working or editing on this laptop, and puts this laptop ahead of the GF65 below in our books.

MSI GL66 | 15.6-inch | Intel Core i7 11800H | Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB HDD + 512GB SSD | $1,299 $999 after $100 rebate at Newegg (save $300)
A laptop with a great CPU and a pretty nippy current-gen GPU for under a grand is not to be taken lightly. It’s a step-down in terms of GPU to the laptop above, which isn’t ideal if you’re purely gaming on this machine, though it comes with far more storage space and a better eight-core CPU for more editing and productivity smarts.

ABS Legend | Intel core i7 10700KF | Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $3,399.99 $2,999.99 at Newegg (save $700)
What ridiculousness is this? A gaming PC with an RTX 3080 Ti and 10th Gen Intel chip combo, with a good amount of storage and RAM… and it comes with two great peripherals, to boot. You just need to top it off with one of the best gaming monitors and you’re sorted with a full, high-end setup.

iBUYPOWER gaming desktop | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti | Intel Core i7 11700KF | 1TB SSD | 16GB DDR4 | $3449.99 $2,699.99 at Newegg (save $750)
It’s not an easy task, buying an RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. That’s why a prebuilt gaming PC is one of the best ways to go, providing you need the rest of the PC parts, too. This is still a high-end build with a high-end price tag, but sadly it’s likely cheaper than building it yourself out of parts. Or at least quicker.

Newegg PC component deals

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X | eight-core, 16-thread | 105W | $449 $359.99 at Newegg (save $39.01)
Saving $65 on a Zen 3 CPU is no bad thing, especially when that nets you a speedy 8-core processor that will eat up your games and more creative apps. AMD is still competitive with Intel, despite the great advances it has made with Alder Lake, so don’t discount this chip because of that. Also, as a platform, AMD is the more affordable option right now.

WD_Black SN750 SE | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | $139.99 $99.99 at Newegg (save $40)
This Special Edition take on the SN750 supports PCIe 4.0, although the throughput of 3,600MB/s is only just better than the best PCIe 3.0 drives. It is however a decent price for a 1TB SSD that offers decent 4K read and write performance. Not the fastest drive around, but at under $100, it’s not a bad deal by any means.

Seagate FireCuda 530 | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | $249.99 $189.99 at Newegg (save $54)
The FireCuda 530 is one of the fastest drives around but is held back somewhat by its high price. With the SN850 and 980 Pro offering roughly the same performance but for a lot less, it’s been hard to unreservedly recommend Seagate’s drove. This $40 saving helps on that front, and if you’re looking for some super speedy storage, this won’t disappoint. 

ASRock Phantom Gaming PG Velocita motherboard | B550 | AM4 socket | ATX | $219.99 $159.99 at Newegg (save $60)
We recommend the closely related Mini-ITX version of this board as one of the best AMD motherboards for gaming, and the same goes for the larger ATX model. This is definitely a more reasonable motherboard for an AMD Ryzen gaming PC, and it offers a decent number of USB ports with a touch of RGB flair.

Super Flower Leadex III | 80 Plus Bronze | Fully modular | 5-year warranty | 850W | $129.99 $84.99 at Newegg (save $45)
Super Flower used to be responsible for making some of the best PSUs known to PC gaming under the guise of another well-known brand, but nowadays it’s going along in the US as Super Flower. That still means a lot in terms of quality, too, as the company has proven again and again. This 850W model specifically is plenty for modern GPUs, and a good buy at this price.

Intel Core i5 11600K | six-core, 12-thread | 125W | $299.99 $229.99 at Newegg (save $70)
Of all the 11th Gen chips, it was the Core i5 11600K that stood out to us as a good deal for gamers. That said, it’s recently been replaced by the more capable Core i5 12600K, though you can’t find that for anywhere near as cheap. Bonus here is you can also save cash on a cheaper motherboard, so it’s all-round a great pick for a budget PC.

Newegg peripheral deals

EVGA Z20 | Optical Mechanical linear switch | 4K Hz polling rate | per-key RGB lighting | $174.99 $64.99 at Newegg and Amazon (save $110)
This EVGA keyboard is a bit of a steal at that price, as it’s one of the more recent arrivals from the company and fully mechanical. That said, it has tracked at this price for a few months on Amazon, but that doesn’t make it any less of a deal today if you’re in the market.

Shure MV7 podcast microphone | USB and XLR | $249 $219 at Newegg (save $30)
Our Jorge loved the Shure MV7 when he reviewed it, and we’re pretty sure you will too. It’s widely compatible with heaps of hardware thanks to its dual-USB and XLR connectivity, and while this isn’t a massive saving on this mic, we didn’t expect to see it drop in price at all this Black Friday.

Aorus FI32U | 32-inch | 4K | IPS | 144Hz | $999.99 $899.99 at Newegg (save $100)
4K is best viewed above 32-inches, and you don’t really want to forgo on picture quality when you’re paying for extra pixels. That’s why this 32-inch, IPS is a great fit for gaming, helped along massively by a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. Now all you need is a great graphics card to feed it with a constant flow of frames.

Aorus FV43U | 43-inch | 4K | VA QLED | 144Hz | $1,099.99 $849.99 at Newegg (save $250)
That 4K Aorus above is great for desktop gaming, but if you want to go bigger then this 43-inch monitor is a good fit. You lose out on the quality IPS of the smaller screen, but instead you get a VA with Quantum Dot. A decent enough trade-off if you want to sacrifice a little for scale.

Gigabyte M27Q | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 170Hz | $359.99 $279.99 at Newegg (save $80)
Flick through the specifications of this gaming monitor and you’ll be surprised to see how much is on offer at this price: 170Hz, FreeSync Premium, IPS panel, 0.5ms response time. All good stuff, and there are tons of really positive reviews for this one online, including this one from our sister site Tom’s Hardware, which makes it look like quite the deal. 

Samsung 4K QLED (2021) | 65-inch | Quantum Dot | $1,699.99 $1,197.99 at Newegg (save $502)
This Samsung 4K QLED is actually a pretty good fit for gaming. You know why? It comes with a 120Hz refresh rate, and for a TV its response time isn’t all too bad at 13ms either. Nice.

Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 Controller | Wireless | removeable thumbsticks/d-pad | rechargeable | $179.99 $149.99 at Newegg (save $30)
The Xbox Elite Wireless 2 is the pinnacle of PC controllers. It’s a step-up on the first-gen Elite controller and it sets the bar high for all third-party PC kit. We love it, use it a lot, and while $30 off isn’t a tremendous discount, you don’t often see this controller with any money off whatsoever.

Logitech G923 Racing Wheel | PC & PlayStation compatible | Pedals included | Force Feedback | $399.99 $334.99 at Newegg (save $65 with coupon code: BKNVBTD29)
We love the Logitech G923 here at PC Gamer, and I personally use it all the time when blasting around Forza Horizon 4 or getting technical in F1 2021. It offers great response, fantastic pedals, and adds a whole lot to the racing game experience. Can’t recommend enough, and $65 off is a bonus.

EVGA X17 gaming mouse | 16,000 DPI | 8K Hz polling rate | $79.99 $24.99 at Newegg (Save $55)
EVGA recently decided to do away with the more traditional 1,000Hz polling rate in favour of an 8K one, which it says is that much faster for competitive gaming. The X17 is the wired mouse with said high polling rate, and it’s a pretty nifty mouse besides that, too.
