Get a great starter gaming PC with a GTX 1660 Super for just $680 this Black Friday

For those of you looking to make the jump into PC gaming or just hoping to upgrade a very dated gaming PC, Black Friday is a very good time to buy a new rig like this CyberpowerPC model. This is the best time of the year to get the most bang for your buck on pre-configured machines that are ready to ship right to your door—especially this year, when graphics cards like the RTX 3080 are impossible to get by themselves.

We've already seen more than a few excellent Black Friday gaming laptop deals so far, but not everyone needs something capable of on-the-go gameplay. Besides the added cost, gaming laptops are typically heavier with shorter battery life. If you're just looking for a solid work laptop (that can also play a bit of Minecraft on the side), one model from HP with a Ryzen CPU is a fantastic deal at $400.

Need a cheap monitor? This 24-inch AOC is less than $100 at Staples for Black Friday

Sometimes, you just need a monitor. Maybe you want to keep an eye on Twitter as you power your way through the latest Destiny 2 raid, or maybe you like to have a reference site open that you can glance at while you're working on your primary monitor. More likely the former than the latter, I'm guessing, but whatever—the point is that you don't need 4K or curves or ultra-anything, you just want a nice, basic monitor to blast some pixels into your eyeballs now and then.

Incredible savings! This $100,000 8K TV is half-off

Like all normal millionaire PC gamers, 1920x1080 resolutions make me want to puke. I simply demand an impossibly expensive 8K screen that can display no less than 16 times that: 7680x4320 is the new bar, set elegantly by this 98-inch Samsung TV.

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem's first content update will completely reset the economy

It's been an interesting journey for the Diablo-inspired action-RPG Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem. It was announced, with the title of Umbra, all the way back in 2015, enjoyed a very successful Kickstarter, went into Early Access in 2016, and then finally launched in early 2020 to decidedly less-than-great reviews. It was supposed to be "a grand evolution of the genre," we said the day after it came out, but ultimately proved to be "a bog-standard ARPG propped up by deeply complex character progression and highly-mobile combat," and worse, was riddled with technical issues.

This Black Friday gaming PC with a GTX 1660 Ti is a great budget build at just $700

It's fun to window shop $5,000+ gaming PCs decked out with all of the best hardware available, and hey, if you have the bank roll for such a machine, by all means make it rain. As for myself, I also like to pay rent, eat, and keep the power on, so I trend towards the bang-for-buck builds. If you do as well, check out this Dell XPS configuration. It has an Intel Core i5 10400 "Comet Lake" CPU and a GeForce RTX 1660 Ti, and is on sale for $699.99 for Black Friday.
