Gaming computer Cyber Monday deals are pretty weak this year

We've spent the past month pouring over every available resource we could find, hunting down deals on computer gaming hardware, only to arrive at today — the single largest internet shopping day of the year. And it's just okay.

The best deal we've found so far is on a mechanical keyboard at Best Buy. If you're looking to take the plunge into those delicious, clacky keys you could do much worse than the Logitech G710 which is filled with genuine Cherry Blueswitches. It's discounted $80 right now and going for $49.99.

As far as complete systems go, Velocity Micro has refreshed their Black Friday sales with a few new Cyber Monday discounts which you can find here. Similar sales are running at iBuyPower, while CyberPower is offering free gift cards and component upgrades at their site.

Newegg's running a big sale of course, but a lot of the good stuff is already sold out. We did find an i7-4790K for $299.99, and an i5-4690K for $209.99. For graphics cards, you can't go wrong with an Asus GTX 970 for $269.99 after a combination of a mail-in rebate and a gift card, or this Sapphire R9 390X for $374.99. If you're in the market for one of our favorite mechanical keyboards, the Corsair K70 RGB is down to $139.99 there as well.

There's plenty of deals on solid state drives as well, including at TigerDirect which is also offering $25 off any order over $100 when you use Visa Checkout.

It's entirely possible that there are just a flurry of incremental deals running today and not many real stunners out there. If you find anything you'd like to share, drop details in the comments below.
