Shopping for bargains? Try these stores
Last updated: January 20, 2021.
A couple of times a week, we trawl through the deepest, darkest corners of the world wide web in order to unearth some of the best PC gaming deals in Australia. This story will largely focus on highlighting PC hardware and peripherals discounts, but if there are any appealing AU-exclusive games bargains, we'll include them too.
Without further ado, here's our current selection of deals — as always, if you spot anything else good, let us know in the comments section below. This round-up will be updated weekly… or just whenever there's an especially good bargain to be had. As bargains expire, we'll remove them from the page.
For a wide range of deals, as well as live price comparisons, check out our sister site Getprice.

Cheap gaming laptops in Australia
Dell is currently offering 20 percent off all Alienware laptops and desktops – that means everything. You'll need to use the coupon GAMESTRONG20 to get the discount, and be aware that this doesn't stack on top of any existing discounts.
Gigabyte Aorus 5 | i7-10750H | RTX 2060 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD – AU$1,999
A smidgeon under two grand for an RTX gaming laptop is definitely not to be ignored — some retailers are selling the GTX 1660 Ti model of the Gigabyte Aorus 5 for only AU$200 cheaper than this. This model boasts a 15.6 inch display with 144Hz refresh rate. Via Mwave.View Deal
ASUS ROG Strix G15 | i7-10750H | RTX 2060 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD – AU$2,099 (usually AU$2,499)
The Aorus 5 above has the same specs for AU$100 less, but if you like the cut of this one’s jib, maybe you don’t mind spending the extra cash. It comes with a mouse pad too! Boasts a 15.6 inch screen with 144Hz refresh rate. Via MWave.
Dell G7 17 | i7-10750H | RTX 2070 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD – AU$1,952.06 (usually AU$2,999)
A brilliant saving on this 17 inch, 1080p gaming laptop, but take note that you’ll need to use the coupon code LOVEKEANU for this price. Without the coupon it’s still discounted to the tune of AU$2,098, but why pay more? Via Dell.View Deal

A big discount on this classy, well-endowed gaming laptop, which boasts a 15.6 inch FHD screen with a frankly astonishing 300Hz refresh rate (3ms response time). The 17 inch model is also on sale for AU$3,599 (usually AU$4,499) and is specc’ed the same, save a smaller SSD. This deal runs until January 28. Via Dell.View Deal
MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFSK | i7 10750H | RTX 2070 Super | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | AU$2,399 (usually AU$3,299)
This powerful gaming laptop is going for up to AU$3,299 elsewhere. If you’re after a ray tracing capable gaming laptop, a bit over AU$2,000 for the privilege isn’t too bad – though you’ll probably want to be keen on MSI’s overall aesthetic.View Deal

A decent AU$10 off this set of stereo cans, which boast 50mm drivers, on-ear volume and mute controls, and a detachable mic. These are good for a budget pair, and while other local retailers have it going for AU$79, this is a tad cheaper, with free shipping to boot. Via Amazon. View Deal
Cheap gaming keyboards in Australia
Razer BlackWidow Chroma | AU$129 (usually AU$219.95)
The price on this green switch mechanical keyboard generally hits between AU$170 and AU$200 in Australia, so this current Amazon deal is quite good.
