It was only a matter of time before the Barbenheimer effect made its way to the gaming PC world, and with it comes two new themed desktops and a whole host of deals. Whether you want to kit out your dream or mojo dojo casa house with the glitter and glamour of a Barbie pink system or race to the finish with a nuclear-fuelled Oppenheimer homage, Chillblast has something for everyone.

Both the Malibu and Atomic gaming PCs come with the same specs, rocking a speedy eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 7700X processor under the hood alongside 32GB of RAM, a 2TB SSD, and an overclocked Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card. Basically, they’re ready to tackle all the latest games without breaking a sweat, handle streaming like a champ, or get down to business with video and photo editing. And for the tech lovers out there, you can see all of this through the tempered glass panel on the left side.

They’re far from identical, though, as you can tell from their lick of paint. The Malibu gaming PC channels its inner Barbie with a hot pink and white chassis and even completes the look with a Corsair H100i Elite Cappelix XT cooler and fans in white. The Atomic model sticks with the black versions to match its darker aesthetic, drawing attention to the ominous yellow and red mushroom cloud on the front.

Both systems cost £2,299.99 GBP on CCL, and you’ll want to give Chillblast ample time to piece it together since they’re made to order. If this is a little too rich for your blood, then you might want to check out the Barbenheimer deals that go alongside it. Horizon has reduced its RTX 3060-powered gaming PC to just £699.99, Asus has a gaming laptop as low as £649.99, and there are plenty of peripherals to go around.
