Amazon Prime Day rolls into day two, and we're still hunting for the best deals. For Amazon, Prime Day is a chance to sell tons of its own products (especially old models that it wants to get rid of), but there are also discounts on some PC hardware and accessories, too. New Prime Day deals will keep popping up throughout Wednesday, since it's actually a two day affair, and we're collecting the ones that are actually worth a look.

As the name suggests, you'll need an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of some of these deals. That's not true of all of them, though. We've included Amazon deals that aren't officially Prime Day deals if they're good enough to warrant it. There are also some good bargains at competing retailers like Best Buy, Newegg, and B&H Photo. 

Most years, Prime Day takes place in July, but this is no normal year, so it was pushed back to October. We're just a month and a half away from Black Friday, which surely affected this year's offerings a little, but that doesn't mean there's nothing good on sale. Here are the best Prime Day deals we've found so far, including a few gaming laptops and monitors, 1TB SSDs for less than $100, and desktop gaming PCs.

You'll find the biggest collection of deals in this list, but for more specificity, check out our list of the most popular Prime Day deals, as well as the Prime Day deals we actually bought ourselves.

Best Amazon Prime Day deals

LG 55-inch 4K Nano 8-series | $899 $499.99 at Amazon
Let’s face it, as much as we’d all love an OLED screen they don’t come cheap. But you can get a 55-inch LG TV for a price that almost comes close. Of course $500 is still a lot of cash, but for a 4K smart TV you’d do well to find one with the same level of quality as this Nano 8-series from LG today.View Deal

Razer Blade 15 | $2599.99 $1,699.99 at Microsoft.com
This is a great price for one of the best gaming laptops around. It’s consistently been among our top picks and this is a great price.

The CPU may be technically last-gen, but the 9th Gen Intel chips are still great mobile gaming processors.View Deal

Asus TUF Gaming A15 | RTX 2060 | $999.99 $799.99 at Best Buy

Okay, so it’s not strictly a gaming laptop, but this chuck-in-the-bag machine will mean you don’t have to lug your 15-inch RTX-powered beast into school or the office.

Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite | $194.99 $158.99 at Newegg

Razer Tetra Streaming Headset | $23.81 $19.99 at Amazon
The Razer Tetra isn’t your usual gaming headset. This is a fairly low-key design, akin to those that used to be bundled with the Xbox 360 (remember those?). Still, it’s great for cheap or if you don’t want to mess up your hair.View Deal

Razer Opus Wireless Bluetooth Headphones | $199.99 $179.99 at Amazon
Again, not quite a gaming headset, but if you want a one-size-fits-all solution for gaming and travelling around, these noise-cancelling cans might be just the trick. View Deal

Another for the goofy-stance clickers among us, the Viper has had 40% shaved off the RRP. This is the cheapest we’ve seen the 16,000 DPI, ambidextrous mouse, and with speedy switches like these, I’d recommend taking a look.View Deal

Razer Ornata Chroma | $99.99 $59.99
Big savings again for the mecha-membrane maniacs among us, magnetic wrist rest included. If you absolutely cannot stand mechanical switches, then this is the half-way house keyboard for you.View Deal

For something a little more compact but with all the bite. With options for green, orange or yellow switches, you might be inclined toward the Tenkeyless version of the BlackWidow—now cheaper than ever.View Deal

This 8-core last-gen Intel chip may lack Hyperthreading, but it still packs a mighty punch in the latest games, thanks to its 4.9GHz Turbo. Great if you’ve already got an LGA 1151 motherboard. It also comes with the Marvel’s Avengers game.View Deal

Should I wait for Black Friday 2020 instead?

Thankfully, Amazon Prime Day 2020 won't take up the entire of October and will just be a two-day event, but will you be better off waiting for Black Friday, or will Prime Day offer better deals on the products you want?

As an exclusive Prime Members-only sale you can expect that Amazon's own tech will be on offer with a heap of deals on Echo and Kindle hardware, but historically Prime Day has also seen a huge number of special offers on laptops too. 

There will likely be a lot of discounts on things like TVs and peripherals too. We don't expect there to be any big discounts on other PC goodies, though with new graphics cards and processors arriving at the tail end of this year, it is possible that last-gen PC components might see some price cuts.

You will need an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of some of the best deals on Prime Day 2020, which isn't necessarily the case around Black Friday, but it's often possible to sign up for an Amazon Prime membership with a 30-day free trial at any point. 

We'll be keeping an eye on what's going on around Prime Day, whenever Jeff does decide to unleash the really big deals, so be sure that if there are any Prime Day PC deals worth shouting about, we'll be doing it.
