I chose the deals you see here based on a mix of factors, including the amount and percentage of the discount, the quality of the items being offered, how desirable each item was compared to its current competitors, and the scale of the discount based on previous sales for that product.
For hardware, I chose products that I've either owned, reviewed, or would purchase for myself. I've been building PCs and gaming on them for more than two decades, giving me a broad view of what makes a good deal on PCs, components, and peripherals. For games, I chose the most popular and steeply discounted games available, prioritizing recent titles that are still in many gamers' backlogs.
I also know that buyers have vastly different budgets, so I tried to include deals at various price points for those with a bit less or a bit more to spend on our favorite gaming gear.
