UK Custom System Retailers Stormforce are getting into the Black Friday spirit with offers on a wide range of pre-configured and built to order gaming PCs. The promotion, which runs over the weekend, sees savings on budget through to premium gaming configurations, with components manufactured by titans of the industry including Intel, AMD and NVIDIA.
Stormforce's biggest Black Friday saving is on their Crystal framework system, a variant of which we reviewed in May. Now upgraded to AMD Ryzen 7 3700 and NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super, it also features NVMe storage and 16GB RAM housed within Cooler Master's particularly attractive MasterCase H500 chassis. For two more days £200 has been shaved off the asking price, which by anyone's measure is a healthy saving.
Very much at the over end of the spectrum is the Onyx Vega 8, a budget gaming system equipped with AMD's Ryzen 3 3200G. Reduced by £60 to just £399.97, this configuration of Onyx represents a great starting point for a PC that can be augmented at a later date, housed within the ample confines of the mATX MasterBox Lite 3.1 Tempered Glass case. The system also includes Windows 10 pre-installed, making it an ideal solution for a student on a tight budget or a very lucky child's first gaming PC.
Finally, those opting for a system more tailored to the mid-range can take advantage of the Stormforce Onyx RTX 2060. Also housed within Cooler Master's MasterBox Lite 3.1, its more beefy internals boast Intel's Core i5-9400F (with six full-fat cores operating at up to 4.1GHz), 16GB RAM, 240GB SSD and NVIDIA's entry-level ray-tracing equipped performance GPU. Well pitched for 1440p gaming, the Onyx RTX 2060 will be great for gaming beyond 60Hz at 1080p (with a suitable monitor). It's now available for £919.99.
Eleven different system configurations within the Onyx and Crystal ranges are part of the Black Friday weekend sale, and don't be afraid to get in touch with them if your requirements don't quite match the pre-configured options. All systems arrive with a 3-year RTB warranty, as well as every manufacturer-associated freebie you would expect should you buy the components separately.
