Overclockers UK has begun offering PC systems themed around popular games.

Users can now find a PCs by Game category within the PC Systems section. There are currently six systems to choose from, each designed to have a style related to the game in question and, of course, be able to play it smoothly out of the box.

There are two PCs based on Hitman and two designed for Tom Clancy's The Division, with the remaining duo being Fallout 4 themed builds. Each comes with a free copy of the relevant game.

For Hitman, OcUK is offering the Titan Contract (AMD FX-8370 Wraith Edition and AMD R9 380X) and the faster Titan Agent 47 with an Intel Core i5-6600K and AMD R9 390X. Both PCs easily exceed the minimum requirements for the game, though the R9 380X in the Titan Contract is a touch slower than the GTX 770 and R9 290, which are the cards in the recommended specifications. To keep with the black, white and red theme of the game, the white BitFenix Nova is kitted out with red LEDs for the Contract system, while the black and red edition of the NZXT Manta has been chosen for the Agent 47 build and includes a Raijintek CPU cooler with a red and white fan and white braided PSU cables as well.

The Titan Dark Zone and Titan Pandemic are the systems built for The Division, this time using Nvidia graphics. The Pandemic pairs a Core i5-6400 with a GTX 970 while the Dark Zone upgrades to a Core i7-6700K and GTX 980 Ti. The Pandemic's CPU is perhaps the only concern, as it isn't as fast as the recommend Intel CPU for the game (Core i7-3770), but is faster, at least in single core terms, than the alternative AMD CPU (FX-8350). The theme of these PCs is black and orange, with the black and orange micro-ATX Aerocool Xpredator Cube being used for the Pandemic along with an orange LED fan, and the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX being built with orange LEDs and orange braided PSU cables in the beefier Dark Zone system.

Lastly, there are two PCs built for Fallout 4 – the Titan Pip-Boy, with a 4.5GHz Core i7-6700K and GTX 970, and the custom water-cooled Titan Vault, featuring a 4.4GHz Core i7-5820K and GTX 980 Ti. Both are in the clear for CPUs as far as the recommended specs go. The GTX 970 in the Pip-Boy is slower than the recommended Nvidia card (the GTX 780) but faster than the R9 290X, which is the AMD equivalent. These PCs have different colour schemes and the option to choose different cases.

Base prices for the systems begin at £867.95 and go up to £1,914.98, with various configuration options available for each one. OcUK's three year warranty (two year collect and return, 1 year labour) comes as standard.
