Gamers can gear up and save this week during Intel Gamer Days. The sale includes a variety of systems, components and peripherals from a number of manufacturers and retailers -- from Alienware and Amazon to Velocity Micro and Walmart -- and ends on Sunday, Sept. 8.

You can check out all of the Intel Gamer Days product deals here. Below are some of the better deals available from Amazon and from Walmart for Intel Gamer Days. (While most of Amazon's deals will last the length of the sale, some are labeled as a Deal of the Day and expire within 24 hours, so make sure you don't miss the countdown clock on a Deal of the Day.)

HP isn't likely the first name gamers think of, but this mainstream 15.6-inch gaming laptop has a little bit of an edge to it with an angular design and a green glowing keyboard. It lacks the overclocking features of higher-end gaming laptops and instead offers a respectable mix of components for solid performance for both everyday tasks and gaming. This configuration features an eighth-generation Intel i5-8300H processor, 8GB of memory, a 1TB hard drive and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics.

We liked the 17-inch version of this laptop for its aggressive styling, super thin cooling fan and overclockable GPU. This model on sale at Amazon is the smaller 15.6-inch version and features an eighth-generation Intel Core i7-8750H CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics and Acer's patented AeroBlade fan. The system's CPU and GPU are a generation or two behind, but it should still be able to crank through today's games at reasonable settings. 

This 15.6-inch gaming laptop has underglow lighting that makes the laptop seem like it's floating above your desk, but more impressive than that trick of the eye is its component lineup: ninth-gen Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 16GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics, and a 512GB SSD.

This liquid-cooled, VR-ready tower packs modern and powerful components, including a ninth-gen Intel Core i9-9900K CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD and the 8GB Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphics card. It bundles a gaming mouse and keyboard, too.

We like this budget gaming laptop for its value even when it's not on sale. This model is a steal at $1,200. It boasts a ninth-gen Core i7-9750H CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 512MB SSD and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics. And its 15.6-inch is a speedy 144Hz IPS panel. 

This ROG Strix laptop is a step down from the model mentioned above from Amazon but still serves up modern components and ample storage. It features a ninth-gen Intel Core i5-9300H chip, 6GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti graphics. Its 15.6-inch display is plenty fast with a 120Hz refresh rate.

HP's flagship gaming laptop features a 144Hz, 15.6-inch display and four-zone keyboard backlighting. Inside, you get a ninth-gen Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and  Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 graphics.

This wireless mouse from Razer has a 16,000dpi optical sensor, seven programmable buttons, RGB lighting and a rated battery life of 50 hours.

Amazon also has Razer Mamba Wireless marked down to $85.

Walmart has this entry-level, wired gaming headset for less than Amazon. It features 40mm drivers, a detachable boom mic and two audio cables that let you use the G233 Prodigy with on a PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch -- plus phones and tablets. You will, however, need to embrace royal blue.
