Black Friday doesn't officially start until next week, but there are a ton of early deals floating around this month. Overclockers UK has recently launched its early deals for the occasion, slashing prices across PCs, gaming laptops, components, cases, monitors and peripherals.
On the peripherals front, you'll find everything from mice and keyboards to gaming chairs. For instance, the wired and wireless versions of the PCGR Model O gaming mouse can be found for £36.95 and £64.99 respectively, a 28% and 20% discount over their usual prices. The Razer Huntsman Elite keyboard is 40% off, bringing it down from £199 to £119.99, and you'll find discounts on the excellent noblechairs range, including the new Black/Copper colourway, which is down from £329.99 to £284.99.
On the monitor front, you'll find a lot of great deals, especially if you're looking to make the jump to a high refresh rate 1440p monitor. Not too long ago, many 1440p/144Hz or 165Hz monitors were going for well over £500. In 2021, you'll find many coming in at under £300 during sales season. For instance, this LG 27-inch 1440p/144Hz monitor is down from £359.95 to £279.95, and the larger 32-inch/165Hz version is down from £498.95 to £348.95. If you'd prefer to stick to 1080p, then this AOC Gaming IPS monitor offers 1080p at 144Hz for £179.99, down from £229.99.
If you're currently planning a new PC build and need a solid starting point, then you'll find decent discounts on cases and fan packs too. The Phanteks Eclipse P600S is currently down to £122.99, but if you need something more airflow focused, then the Kolink Heavy Vented Edition is also on sale, down from £124.99 to £99.95. For a flashy mini-system, you could look at the Lian-Li O11 Dynamic Mini, which is down to £72.95. When buying a case, its usually a good idea to get some extra fans too, with that in mind, the Lian-Li UNI-Fan SL120 ARGB triple pack is currently 28% off, bringing the price down to £53.99 – the white version is on sale too for the same price.
Finally, if you are looking to pick up a full system, you'll also find good discounts on gaming laptops and PCs. The ASUS ROG Strix G15 for instance packs a Ryzen 9 5900HX, 16GB of RAM and an RTX 3060 for £1399.99. Alternatively, the Gigabyte Aorus 17G is also on sale, packing an RTX 3060, an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 and a 300Hz display for £1,199.99. The ASUS TUF Dash F15 is also a good deal, packing an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 and an RTX 3070 for £1,249.99. If you're after an RTX 3080, then your best bet right now may be buying a custom-built PC, like the OCUK Gallium, sporting a Ryzen 7 3700X and RTX 3080 for £2,199.95, currently £300 off for Black Friday. The OCUK Enigma Enthusiast system is a bit more wallet-friendly, packing a Ryzen 7 3700X and an RTX 3070 for £1,579.99, down from £1,749.95.
