    These Prime Day deals on microSD cards are a perfect fit for your Steam Deck

    With all the Amazon Prime Day deals buzz, it’s easy to lose sight of the smaller items that make your life easier as you search through the PC gaming deals. If you’re one of the lucky few Steam Deck (opens in new tab) owners out there, you’ll probably be looking for ways to get the most out of your fancy new handheld. 

    As you might have heard, the Steam Deck is an excellent system for emulation (opens in new tab). Though, even with the larger 512GB version of the Steam Deck, once you download a bunch of retro games and other backlog games from your Steam library, 512GB can fill up pretty fast. 

    Thankfully the Steam Deck supports microSD cards. This means you have a way of expanding the system’s storage up to an extra 1TB of storage. Ideally, you want to store your Steam games on the Deck’s internal storage (to take advantage of the SDD’s speed) and use the microSD for things like ROMs for emulation and other media files. 

    The extra space lets you organize Steam Deck games and apps, so you don’t have to worry about running out of space. It’s a nice and easy upgrade that will keep you from popping open your Steam Deck and messing with the NVMe SSD. 

    Below are some of our favorite microSD cards ranging from 256GB to 1TB for the Steam Deck that are on sale for Prime Day.
