PC gaming can be an eye-searingly expensive hobby, with a decent gaming rig costing you close to £1,000 and upwards. Thankfully, there’s value to be had with the options on offer for your gaming monitor. This Asus panel comes in at 24.5in, FHD and 144Hz—strong entry-level chops. There’s a narrow bezel so it doesn’t cramp your setup’s style either.
Finding the right gaming desktop can be a tough task and the price of components can rise pretty quickly and, if you aren’t a PC building fiend who knows all the right moves to make to get the most out of each part, it can be a bit daunting. This AlphaSync prebuild comes with one of the newer Nvidia graphics cards, the RTX 3060Ti, alongside a top-end AMD Ryzen 7 processor. At just over a grand, you can expect glorious 1080p graphics from this machine or mid-tier delights if you’re looking to go up to a 1440p resolution.
A regular ol’ keyboard just won’t do if you’re an avid gamer and the fiercest of competitors won’t settle for less than a mechanical option. This MSI fits the bill at a reasonable price. You get low-profile, tactile switches presented in a floating key design and, yes, there’s per-key RGB for keeping your setup lively and in line with your other gadgets.
When is Black Friday?
The big day itself always falls on the last Friday of November each year. In 2021, that’s November 26. But, if you’ve been scouring for deals around this time over the last few years, you know it often extends far beyond this.
Like last year, the year before and so on, you can expect deals to begin ramping up at the beginning of the week Black Friday, that’s from the 22nd. And, as you can see from this list, some deals typically start rolling in during the first week of November. So, you can get hunting for deals now but bear in mind that many of the very best bargains are often saved by retailers for Black Friday (and, even, Cyber Monday) itself.
