Finding gaming PC deals in the UK can be a little tricky, especially if you're in London. So, to make things as simple as possible, we have put this blog together, which is filled with simple tips to make finding your next gaming PC a breeze.

How to Find a PC Deal (Using Keywords in Google)

The best way to find PC deals in the UK, including London, no surprise, is using the internet. When it comes to brand new, guaranteed prebuilt computers, the internet is your friend. For this section, I will be using Google as my example, as, according to First Site Guide, 76% of all searches are performed through Google.

It is no surprise that Google is constantly evolving, making searching for anything much easier than it once was. By simply searching for the term 'Gaming PC London' or 'Gaming PC no credit check UK' and clicking on the shopping tab on the Google search page, you will be greeted by a plethora of potential PCs. But the filters section is where things get really interesting. Google automatically attaches relevant filters to a specific product category, such as gaming PCs, allowing you to filter by specs, manufacturer (such as Intel and AMD RAM capacity and much more). Once you have selected your ideal configuration, you will be able to set your price range to meet your needs. This way of shopping is far more efficient than simply Googling 'Gaming PC UK' and scrolling through different web pages and hoping you come across something that is suitable.

Questions to Ask

If you are buying a brand new gaming PC, relevant questions to ask a sales representative are:

  • What games is this PC suitable for?
  • What settings can it run at?
  • What FPS (frames per second) should I expect?
  • What sort of connectivity is available, such as USB ports and monitor outputs?
  • Does this PC come with WiFi? (Many gaming PCs don't come with this as standard)

If you are buying a used PC, this can get a little trickier, but some good questions to give you some peace of mind are as follows:

  • How long have you had the PC for?
  • When you bought it, was it new?
  • Has it ever been professionally serviced?
  • Have you ever experienced any crashing or slowdowns?
  • What condition is the PC in?
  • Is the PC upgradable?

Price to Performance

If you are looking for a deal, then chances are you don't have an endless budget that you can allocate to your next PC, so price to performance is key. Certain components offer very poor price to performance, one of which is the GT 1030 graphics card. The current selling price of this GPU ranges from £70-£90. Let's compare the GT 1030 to the popular GTX 1650, which retails between £120 - £150. According to Userbenchmark, the GTX 1650 is around 230% faster than the GTX 1030 but only costs 70% more.

There are multiple low-tier graphics cards that offer performance, which teeters on the brink of unplayable. To make things easier, we have made a list of components which we would recommend avoiding:


  • GT 710
  • GT 1030
  • RX 550
  • GT 730


  • Celeron G5905
  • Celeron G6900
  • Pentium Gold G6405
  • Pentium Gold G7400
  • Ryzen 3 4100
  • Ryzen 3 3200G

How much does a good gaming PC cost in the UK?
