We're back for the second day of Amazon Prime Day 2019 in the United States, bringing with it a hearty helping of deals on PC hardware, electronics and gaming peripherals. Here at Digital Foundry, we've been casting our weather eye over the proceedings to identify the best deals on the gaming kit that we've actually tried and tested. Thus far, we've found excellent deals on smartphones and tablets, memory cards and SSDs, monitors, graphics cards and all kinds of PC gaming peripherals.
Before we get into the deals, here's a heads-up: there's so much to cover this year that we've left out some categories, including tablets and gaming laptops. If you're in the market for any of these, take a look at these gaming and non-gaming laptops or laptops, desktops and tablets here. (If you want a sanity check on a potential deal, ask us in the comments and we'll get back to you!) With that said, on with the show!
Amazon Prime Day concludes tonight. We'll continue to add new deals as we find them, so check back here often. You can also follow us on Twitter @digitalfoundry for the highlights. We've also included a few deals from other stores, which are now running their own sales to compete with Amazon. With that out of the way, let's get into the deals.
Best Amazon Prime Day 4K TV deals
This is an insanely great deal on the best 4K TV for HDR gaming. Add the TV to your cart to get $548 off, then use code FOHTTK to knock off another $100. Expect stock to be exhausted quickly!
- [NEW] LG C8 OLED 55-inch - $948 with code FOHTTK at checkout
Best Amazon Prime Day Xbox One, PlayStation 4 & Nintendo Switch console deals
Here are the best console bundles we've found so far, including on the Xbox One S, PlayStation 4 Slim and Nintendo Switch. We're still on the lookout for Xbox One X deals, so let us know if you find any!

- Nintendo Switch + $35 eShop credit - $300 [10% off]
- Nintendo Switch + free game (5 choices) + accessory - $329 [12% off]

Best Amazon Prime Day CPU deals
It's rare to see significant CPU discounts on shopping holidays, but the Ryzen 7 2700X has been heavily reduced in the face of AMD's recent 3rd-gen Ryzen launch. The 2700X still offers good performance for the money, especially when it has been reduced from its $329 list price and $250 street price to just $200. The CPU comes with AMD's Wraith Prism cooler, too. You can also pick up the workstation-grade Threadripper 2950X, which boasts 16 cores and 32 threads that tear through content creation and other multi-threaded workloads.
Best Amazon Prime Day memory card deals
SanDisk's Ultra series of memory cards are among the best in the business, offering long-lasting performance and reliability. The 100MB/s read speeds of this Class 10 card make it a strong choice for the Nintendo Switch, action cams and smartphones, without being as expensive as faster U3 cards. SanDisk's Extreme memory cards offer even faster transfer speeds, albeit at lower capacities.
- SanDisk Nintendo Switch 64GB Micro SD card - $13 [37% off]
- SanDisk Extreme 128GB Micro SD card - $20 [71% off]
- SanDisk Ultra 400GB Micro SD card - $45 [32% off]
- SanDisk Ultra 512GB Micro SD card - $100 [44% off]
Best Amazon Prime Day monitor deals
We've found a couple of monitor deals worth recommending so far, including a 27-inch 4K monitor from LG. This monitor uses an IPS panel, so its colour reproduction is excellent and viewing angles are strong too. If you prefer something a bit better suited to fast-paced games, the Acer monitor we've highlighted below has an ultra-wide aspect ratio for maximum immersion and a silky-smooth 144Hz refresh rate.
- [NEW] LG 34GL750-B 34-inch 1080p ultra-wide 144Hz G-Sync monitor - $380 [31% off]
- BenQ EL2870U 4K 28-inch FreeSync monitor - $300 [14% off]

- Acer EI491CR 49-inch 1080p 144Hz ultra-wide monitor - $700 [22% off]
Best Amazon Prime Day SSD, HDD and external drive deals
The highlight of Amazon's SSD deals so far is this SN750 drive from WD. We actually recommended this drive in our roundup of the best SSDs for gaming and content creation, noting that WD's drive would be more competitive if it saw a price cut. That price cut has now happened, so go nuts with one of the best-performing NVMe SSDs on the market. There's a 1TB model for $175 or a 500GB model with heatsink for $90. If capacity is more important to you than raw speed, SanDisk's 2TB 3D SSD for $193 is a great deal. There's even a 4TB (!) SSD for $400.
- Sabrent Rocket 1TB NVMe SSD - $110 [30% off]
- WD SN750 1TB NVMe SSD - $175 [30% off]
- SanDisk Ultra 2TB SSD - $193 [20% off]
- Samsung 860 QVO 4TB SSD - $400 [27% off]
Internal hard drives have also been offered at a good discount, including models for desktop PCs (WD Black) and NAS systems (WD Red). We've also included a 2TB hybrid drive, which essentially includes a solid state cache to speed up a traditional hard drive.
- Seagate FireCuda 2TB hybrid drive - $60 [37% off]
- WD Black 4TB performance HDD - $130 [32% off]
- WD Red 4TB NAS HDD - $136 [31% off]

External hard drives are also on sale. These are great for backing up your data to a second location or plugging into your Xbox One to add a ton of extra storage. For example, this 4TB Seagate external hard drive works on PC, Mac and Xbox One and costs just $99, while a 2TB model from WD works with the PlayStation 4 for $59. If you need to back up your extensive image or video collection, there's also a 10TB WD Elements drive - which should also be quite shuckable, if you're into that. The last item is a portable SSD, meaning it supports faster speeds - although it is limited by the USB 3.0 interface.
- WD Gaming Drive 2TB external HDD - $59 [34% off]
- Seagate 4TB external HDD - $99 [23% off]
- WD Elements 10TB external HDD - $159 [47% off]

The Razer Naga Trinity is one of the most flexible gaming mice on the planet, thanks to its hot-swappable side panels, each with their own button arrangement. It's our current pick for the best mouse for MMOs, and it's available at $55 today - almost 50 per cent off and the lowest price we've ever recorded.
