Amazon Prime Day 2023 is here. The two-day shopping extravaganza runs July 11 – 12, promising a deluge of deals for consumers hoping to bag a bargain in these times of soaring living costs.

This year low-cost SSDs are hogging the limelight, but if you dig deep there are genuine offers for PC enthusiasts. We’ve done the legwork for you – it’s not easy separating the wheat from the chaff! – and unearthed noteworthy deals in key categories.

Starting with cooling, Arctic’s mahoosive Liquid Freezer II 420 all-in-one liquid cooler has dropped to £109.98, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen. Not bad for a cooler that’ll tackle any CPU on the market.

Graphics bargains are a little harder to come by, but a couple of cards are certainly worth a closer look. MSI’s 12GB Radeon RX 6750 XT Mech 2x is down to £349.99 / $329.99, while an Asus 8GB GeForce RTX 3060 Ti White OC Edition can be found for £299.99 / $339.99.

Corsair Vengeance DDR5

“In the many-core era, the unprecedented processing speed of DDR5 ensures your high-end CPU gets data quickly with ease.”

DDR5 memory continues to venture into mainstream territory, with a 32GB (2x16GB) kit of Corsair Vengeance DDR5-6000 now delivering tight CL30 timings at a lowest-ever price of £98.99 / $99.99. Continuing with the Corsair theme, a 4000D Airflow case is a fine base for a new build, particularly now that pricing has dropped to £69.99 in the UK!

Outside of the rig, monitors are an excellent upgrade if the price is right. The AOC Gaming U34G3XM 34in ultrawide ticks a lot of the right boxes for an expansive VA panel with 3440×1440 resolution and 144Hz refresh rate, and Prime Day pricing of £269 is the lowest we’ve seen in a while.

If gaming isn’t a primary focus, the Dell SE3223Q offers a vast 31.5in canvas and pin-sharp 4K UHD resolution, and those ingredients are all the more appealing with pricing dropping by over 20 per cent to £236.54. Comfortably the best price to date, but if you really want to push the boat out, Samsung’s jaw-dropping 5K ultrawide, the Odyssey Neo AG95, is reduced to a cool £1,499.99.

Dell SE3223Q 4K Monitor

“Take on your day comfortably with this 31.5″ 4K UHD monitor featuring VA technology, PBP/PIP, up to 1.07b displayable colours and a fixed stand.”

What else is worth upgrading during the sales? Well, there’s good opportunity to expand on NAS storage. Seagate’s 8TB IronWolf is sat at a best-ever price of £147.90 / $129.99, and in the console space, a certified refurbished Xbox Series S at £149.99 is well worth a punt. Last but not least, a one-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud’s photography plan is back down to £74.99 – grab it while you can.

As a reminder, and stating the obvious, Prime Day deals are available exclusively to Amazon Prime members! If you haven’t already been a Prime member in the past 12 months, you can sign up for a free trial here.
