Full Systems

ASUS ROG G703 - $2389.99

If you’re ready to step up to a big beast of a desktop replacement laptop, this 17.3” Asus will satisfy all your high frame rate desires. It pairs an eighth generation Core i9-8950HK with an RTX 2080 to jam as many frames into the 1080p IPS 144Hz G-Sync screen as possible!

It also comes with 16GB 2666 MHz RAM and a 512 GB NVMe M.2 SSD so you can expect it to load fast and multitask.

If you feel like you need more storage, it comes with Thunderbolt 3, for lightning fast communication with external HDs. If you want to hook it up to external 4K screens or a VR headset, it’s packing a Mini DisplayPor 1.3 and HDMI 2.0.

MSI GL65 - 899.00

For folks who don’t want to break their budget or their backs, this 15.6” MSI gaming laptop is thin and light both in terms of cost and weight. It weighs in at 5 pounds, but jams quite a lot of power in. It comes with a Core i7-9750H and a GTX 1660 Ti, 8GB of RAM, and a 512 NVMe SSD. You won’t be doing any ray-tracing, but 1080P gaming at this price point will still feel nice and smooth at medium to high settings.

It’s also expandable with a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port, as well as three more USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A (the more traditional type of USB port).

Gigabyte Aero Creator Laptop - $1599.00

If you’re looking for a Goldilocks just-right price point, this Gigabyte Aero laptop will work. With its RTX 2070, you still can trace rays, and with an i7-9750H, you’ll have plenty of power.

It’s got 16GB of RAM and a 512 GB M.2 NVMe, Thunderbolt 3, and a 15.6” 1080p 144Hz screen, all in a unit that weighs only 4.40lb!

Important note for content creators: you can perform an aftermarket upgrade on this unit to jack the RAM up to a staggering 64GB. 4K video editing? Animation on the go? Yes, please!

As a nice bonus to video editors / photographers, it includes a UHS-II SD card reader, with speeds up to 300 MB/s. If you use UHS-II SD cards, this is a godsend, especially after long shoot days with multiple camera ops.

SkyTech Ryzen 5 3600 Desktop PC - 999.99

If you like epic RGB bling and solid gaming performance at a reasonable price, this is a great deal. It comes with the best-in-class 6-core / 12-thread Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and a Ryzen RTX 2070 Super.

It’s packing 16GB of RAM for those of us who like to run 30 Chrome tabs and a game at the same time. Expect 802.11 AC Wifi, a ton of USB ports, and the AMD B450 chipset onboard.

SkyTech Ryzen 5 2600 Desktop PC - $639.99

If you need a deal, this $639.99 desktop is just the ticket. It pairs a last-gen-but-still-awesome Ryzen 5 2600 with an RX 580 to be a budget 1080p gaming beast. Loading times will be fast with its 500GB SSD, and since this is a desktop, you can easily expand your storage if necessary (see below!)

Components

Builders rejoice! Black Friday is the best time to build a new system or upgrade an existing one and there are sick deals throughout Newegg.

Intel i7-9700K - $339.99

If you’re looking for an 8-core / 8-thread Intel processor for a deal, this is the one. It runs at 3.6 GHz with a 4.9 GHz turbo. It’s a “K” series processor, which means it’s unlocked for overclocking.

ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti - $1149.99

This is the best price I’ve seen on an RTX 2080 Ti all year. If you’re looking to game in 4K, this is the best GPU you can buy. Expect 20-30% frame rate improvement over last generation’s 1080 Ti at 4K.

Crucial MX500 500GB SSD - $64.99

If you haven’t stepped your system up to an SSD yet, you owe it to yourself to do so. Your operating system will boot lighting fast and game loading times will be a thing of the past. At a mere $64.99, this is a great way to dip your toe into the pool. If you take advantage of the Skytech desktop deals above, this is a great, cheap way to expand your storage.

ASRock B540M Steel Legend mobo - $89.99

Folks interested in building a small AMD PC with few compromises should check out this mobo. It’s got the AM4 socket that will fit any Ryzen 3, 5, or 7 CPU and dual M.2 slots for super-fast NVMe storage. There’s also some funky RGB bling in there too.

G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2x8GB) - $69.99

It’s a great time to upgrade your RAM! This same kit was around $90 this time last year, when I picked up a set for myself. A year later, it’s going strong and working great. If you’re on a desktop, a jump from 8 to 16GB of RAM is a nice improvement. If you’re a 4K video editor, the jump from 16GB to 32GB RAM is fantastic. Highly recommended.
