Original story (09/01/19): Alongside learning about all of the technology that’s to come, January is the perfect time to splash some cash on new gadgets and goodies with the amount of sales floating around. Until the beginning of next month, Overclockers UK will be hosting a range of discounts across systems, displays and gaming chairs.
Many of the deals seen here mirror the savings that originally appeared around Black Friday, 2018, including Overclockers UK’s Citizen Gaming PC. This features an affordable Ryzen 2600 and an RX 590 for £799.99, coming with The Division 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake at no extra cost. OCUK’s Zenith Gaming PC includes the same three games but steps things up a little with the more expensive Ryzen 7 2700X and a Vega 56 for £1,399.99. Consumers should act fast, as this is the “last chance” for customers to get the range of triple-A games with their purchase before the offer ends February 1st.
Intel and Nvidia enthusiasts haven’t been left behind, with OCUK’s Kinetic ZX featuring a Intel Core i7-9700K at 3.65GHz, a Palit GeForce RTX 2070 Dual 8192MB graphics card and 16GB of 3000MHz DDR4 RAM for £1,479.95, a 12% saving. This includes a whole bundle of games from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Killing Floor 2, Evasion and more.
OCUK has listed two new HD 1080p FreeSync monitors with 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time that seem to undercut competition. Hannspree’s 24-inch HG244PJB sports a TN panel and Adaptive-Sync technology for £179.99, while MSI’s 27-inch Optix MPG27C houses a curved VA panel with built-in RGB lighting along the bottom bezel for £359.99.
One of the best discounts hits noblecharis limited edition EPIC Black/Blue/White gaming chair, made from thick PU leather. Leading the European Hardware Awards in 2017 and 2018 thanks to its fully adjustable height, tilt, 4D armrests and built-in rocking feature, the EPIC line is actually my choice of seat while I work on these stories. For a limited time, consumers can save a rather decent £60, reducing the chairs from £299.99 to £239.99.
KitGuru Says: There are some good options here for those shopping for a new system, or picking up a new peripheral. Has anything caught your eye?
