For all the home theater gamers out there, here’s a handy list of the Black Friday specials going on at Amazon.com and Newegg.com. In the context of gaming, home theater of course could be a projection based system, but it could also mean a large TV that’s equipped with surround-sound.
Regardless of whether it’s a TV or projector, one thing is consistent with PC-based home theater gaming: You get the best of the best in terms of graphics performance. If you want real 4K, with a level of detail that you cannot get from any other type of source. And these days, a serious PC-based solution that can play most games in true 4K, with high graphics settings is attainable without going broke.
Today’s TVs even offer game modes that compete with monitors in terms of low input lag, and certain TVs from Samsung, including its NU8000 and QLED models (except 49″) have variable frame rate capability when used with AMD Freesync. This is a capability that was once only possible using a monitor, but now can be experienced in a much more cinematic context.

Sn to the home theater gaming PC deals from Newegg. The site actually has a ton of deals posted, but I stayed away from anything under 20% savings since that’s not very Black Friday-ish. So without further ado, here are the Black Friday specials with savings of at least 20% that are available from Newegg.com
These sales end Saturday, November 24 2018.
