It’s summertime, which brings barbecues, fireworks, and the shopping extravaganza known as Amazon Prime Day. This year, Prime Day starts on July 11 and runs until the end of July 12. This is a great time to snag some discounted peripherals to complete your PC setup. Whether you’re shopping to build a home office around a new laptop or expanding your gaming rig with a Prime Day deal on a new CPU or GPU, you’ll find deep discounts on the devices you want for Prime Day.

We've also got dedicated hubs on Prime Day deals on wireless earbuds, monitors, and SSD storage, so you can find whatever you're looking for to improve your setup. With the depth of deals on offer, it might be tricky finding exactly what you need. Some discounts only seem like a good deal, so we’ll help you navigate the sales. We won’t talk about any devices that wouldn’t find a place on our desks. From the best gaming mice to webcams to make you look good in work meetings, you’ll find a wide variety of deep discounts on PC accessories this Prime Day.

There will also be a running feed of individual Prime Day deals during the two days. These will be highlighting any discounts, devices, or deals that we feel deserve their own spotlight, whether that's from huge savings, lowest-ever pricing, or other considerations.

Amazon isn't the only retailer having sales in this period. Best Buy is having its competing Black Friday in July sales, which started on July 10 and runs through July 12. That's a full 24 hours more than Amazon Prime Day. Best Buy is also offering deeper discounts locked behind its My Best Buy Plus and My Best Buy Total membership programs, with members also getting two-day free shipping with no minimum purchase. Walmart is running Walmart+ Week, which started on July 10 and runs through July 13. Expect toys, home appliances, and summer accessories to be on sale.

Best storage deals

$110 $160 Save $50

The Rocket Q4 2230 NVMe SSD is the best choice for upgrading the internal storage of your Steam Deck or Asus ROG Ally.

Prime Day is often a good time to shop for internal computer storage. It's also a good time to pick up some deals on portable external storage (although you should always go for an SSD for faster speeds).

Prime Day is now here, and we're still seeing good deals on internal storage. The Sabrent Rocket 2230 NVMe 4.0 is a perfect drop-in upgrade for the Steam Deck or Asus ROG Ally, and saving money on the upgrade is even sweeter. SSD prices have come down in recent years, but there's still a place for high-capacity, spinning hard drives. This WD Black Gaming internal hard drive has a speedy 7,200 RPM spindle for faster data access and up to 10TB of capacity to download your game library. And our favorite external SSD, the Samsung T7, is 12% or more off, although the best deal is for the 2TB model. For more external capacity, save 54% off this 4TB Crucial X8 external SSD with up to 1,050 MB/s read speeds.

Best webcams and streaming deals

Logitech has been designing webcams for a long time now, and the Brio is one of its best. It records in UHD resolution and will make you look great on conference calls or if you're streaming your gameplay. Likewise, the creator-focused StreamCam is also a solid option for 60FPS recording at 1080p, perfect for smooth capture.

Best audio deals

The Razer Kraken gaming headset is one of the most comfortable headsets on the market, with big, soft ear cushions and a padded headband. It's no slouch in the audio quality department either, and the wired connection means no dealing with battery charging or wireless interference. It's also at nearly the lowest price we've ever seen, so it's well worth grabbing. The HyperX Solocast is a great, easy-to-use USB microphone with a cardioid polar pickup pattern, perfect for podcasts, game communications, or conference calls, and while it's not at the lowest price we've ever seen, a $20 discount is nothing to sneeze at.

Q: Which PC accessories are a must have?

That depends on your use case, although some items are fairly universal. Good audio is a must for any PC setup, whether that’s for watching content, playing games, or getting work done in video meetings. With how much time you spend on your computer, a good keyboard and mouse are also necessary, and a game controller if you prefer. While you can spend hundreds on these items, it’s better to start somewhere more affordable, at least until you know what you like.

Q: What makes a good deal?

While there is no hard and fast percentage that makes any product instantly compelling, substantial discounts are worth considering. That said, retailers have a habit of inflating prices ahead of major shopping events, so the discount appears higher than it really is. To combat this, use a price tracking tool like CamelCamelCamel to ensure the deal is legit.

Q: How much should you spend on PC accessories?

When it comes to hard and fast rules on how much to spend on accessories for your PC, there aren't any dollar amounts. That's because it really depends on what you need, and how you use your PC. Increasing internal storage or adding additional storage in the form of external hard drives or SSDs can often be the biggest expense, as larger storage capacities quickly become expensive. Other accessories like mechanical keyboard could be $50, or they could run to several hundreds of dollars depending on the brand and features you want. Instead of a dollar amount, look for deals of at least 10% off, and the larger the discount the better.
