Thanksgiving is fast approaching and after the turkey is finished when people usually get sick of their families stores will prepare for the tidal wave of humanity seeking deals on Black Friday.

But thanks to the power of the internet, we don’t have to fight against unruly deal seekers through the mall just to try and find the best deals while losing our minds.

Black Friday deals have already started to be listed, giving us plenty of time to pick out whatever upgrades we want at our leisure.

Amazon is a good start, but it isn’t the only place with great Black Friday gaming deals, below, we’ve compiled a small list of some of the best deals to help you start out 2020 in style.

Gaming PC Black Friday deals

What’s a gamer without a badass rig to go into battle with? If you’re looking for a new, upgraded battle station this holiday season there are plenty of options for gamers looking to break the bank on an upgrade or those just looking for a cheap, reliable PC they can upgrade over time.

For those looking to go all out and not wanting to put together their own rig, may we present the ABS Mage M, a gaming desktop with an Intel i7 9700K and GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics card on Newegg.com for $1,199.99 down from $1,499.99 for Black Friday.

You might even be able to run Red Dead Redemption 2 at high graphics on this beast.

The Mage is definitely a more top of line prebuilt PC, but there are plenty of other deals on gaming rigs for Black Friday.

Other deals:

Gaming Monitor Black Friday deals

But hey, maybe you don't need a whole new PC, you could just want to upgrade the screen you play on and move on from that old monitor you found in the basement.

Luckily, it’s been a good year for monitors, with the new curved design becoming all the rage and much more affordable since last year.

Speaking of curved monitors, the mammoth Samsung 49-Inch CRG90 Curved Gaming Monitor is $1,299.99, down from a $1,499.99 regular price.

Now that's a lot of screen.

Almost $1,300 for a new monitor even after the discount might break the bank for some people, so below are a few more deals on new monitors this Black Friday season:

Gaming Keyboard Black Friday deals

Good peripherals are obviously a must-have for PC gaming and there's nothing like that first session with a brand new keyboard.

One of the best deals this Black Friday is for the "Rosewill Mechanical Gaming Keyboard" for a price of $59.99 down from $149.99 - $90 in savings on a keyboard with all the RBG one could ask for.

Mechanical keyboards are essential to asserting your gaming dominance through noisy typing.

Other deals:

Gaming Mouse Black Friday deals

A quality mouse is crucial for FPS games and any game that relies on precision while playing. There's some debate as to whether or not having a wired or wireless mouse makes a real difference while gaming but the good news is there are deals on both for Black Friday.

In the wireless department, there's the Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED for a price of $79.99, down from $149.99 on Newegg.

The Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED sees a big markdown for Black Friday.

There are also options for wired mice, and the Razer Basilisk is a good one at $48.99 down from $69.99.

Other options:

Gaming Consoles Black Friday deals

For those gamers who prefer the console side of things, Black Friday, of course, has deals on all of that kind of stuff as well.

Although it's not on the site yet, Amazon said in a press release that they'll be offering up to 33% off on PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB bundles and Playstation themselves just announced their Black Friday prices as well.

Amazon will also have unspecified deals on Xbox One, and Microsoft will probably roll out their own promotions as Thanksgiving gets closer.
