It’s been mixed in terms of queues this Black Friday so far. The Montrealers below are braving the conditions this year, but there are some shops (normally with people waiting round the block) entirely without queues this year, as some stay home due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But if you’re looking for high resolution PC gaming on a TV, I’ve got you covered, too. This LG CX OLED is, in our opinion, the best 4K gaming TV you can buy right now, and you can grab it for over £100 at Currys right now. If you don’t mind not having voice control, you can benefit from the blackest blacks, colossal contrast, plus FreeSync and G-Sync.
It’s also absolutely the TV I’d be buying right now, if I weren’t being such a good boy this Black Friday and saving the pennies. That said, if it’s not the display for you, or you’re looking for a monitor, check out more of our hand-picked Black Friday gaming monitor deals.
LG OLED55CX6LB | 55-inch | OLED | 4K |
£1,199 £1,098 at Currys (save £101)
A slightly newer model, this is excellent value for money, even without the sale. It may be lacking voice control, but otherwise it has all the same features as its predecessor (the OLED55CX6LA), and for a fraction of the price.View Deal
Ok, confession time: I’m still rocking a 1080p setup. The thing is, I’ve passed on 1440p for so long now, I feel like I might as well just make the jump to 4K, but it’s so expensive.
That said, this is the kind of monitor I’d normally laugh at the price of and move on, as I look for a display befitting my (imaginary) RTX 3080 in my (fantasy) 4K rig. At nearly £500 off, this 4K, 120Hz, 34-inch curved Alienware panel is a monster; No wonder it’s flying off the virtual shelves this Black Friday.
Alienware AW3420DW | 34-inch Curved | 120Hz | 4K |
£1,304.10 £829.79 at Dell (save £474)
This is the cream of the IPS monitor crop, with G-Sync for Nvidia users. It’ll let you make the most of those gorgeous next-gen RTX games, and the 120Hz refresh rate is more than enough to deliver a smooth, immersive gaming experience at 4K. And you’re saving a ridiculous £475, too.View Deal
If you’re crossing your fingers and toes in the hope of bagging an RTX 3070/80, you’re going to want to look into upgrading other parts of your system to avoid pesky bottlenecks.
Swapping our your RAM is a simple way of benefitting from smoother PC performance. It’s worth mentioning before you start shelling out that AMD chips work best with DDR4 3600 memory, whereas Intel’s play just fine with DDR 3200.
Black Friday RAM deals
Buffing the memory in your PC is a nice and easy way to upgrade your gaming machine. Just slot in a new set of speedy sticks and your experience will be plenty smoother. You could get good value RAM already, but now Black Friday is here to make prices even better.

Ok, so naturally I’m a bit biased here, but this is a great deal on a year’s sub to PC Gamer. For £45.40 (half price) you get a year of thoughtful reviews, engrossing features, and an especially excellent ‘How To’ section walking you through tricky games and systems—I hear the writer behind the latter is especially wonderful.
