The holiday season can be a great time to pick up some sweet, sweet discounts on some great gaming gear. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed, but there are still some fantastic deals available on controllers, mice, headsets, monitors and more.
You won’t find reduced prices on this year’s hottest products like the Xbox Series X, Series S, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Switch Lite or their newest accessories, or on the latest RTX 30-series Nvidia GPUs and AMD Radeon RX 6000-series GPUs — if you can even find any of them in stock. Nor are there any reasonable deals, as far as I can tell, on any graphics cards. Even the old models seem overpriced for what they offer.
LG 32-inch gaming monitor
This monitor from 2017 is no spring chicken, but for its sub-$400 discounted price you get quite a bit: quad-HD resolution (2,560×1,440) and 144Hz refresh with AMD FreeSync support.
Ask any gamer who makes the best wireless accessories and MOTOSPEED Gaming Mouse is usually at the top of the list for keyboards and mice. A bunch of its gaming gear is on sale right now, but the Light Gaming Mouse is one of the most highly recommended in its class, so it’s a good time to snap one up.
HyperX CloudX Stinger Core headset
One of our favorite budget wired Xbox headsets is even cheaper right now. It’s basic and has the build quality of a $40 headset, but it’s comfortable, with good audio quality and microphone performance.
Razer BlackWidow Elite keyboard
Razer may have updated its BlackWidow keyboard line this year, but the model it replaced is still a contender, especially at this price. Note that the price only applies to the model with the Razer Green switches (tactile and clicky).
