Does Black Friday usually have an impact on build price?

Hey guys!

I just finished my part list, and since Black Friday is just around the corner, I was wondering if it was worth waiting? In your experience, are there usually enough deals on specific PC components to warrant waiting a month? Can it reduce the total build price by a substantial amount?

Thanks! :)

Not really. Black Friday/Cyber Monday do not tend to have very great PC part related deals, and the ones they do have are very comparable to deals you could find any other time of year. Black Friday deals rarely have anything special on stuff like CPU's, GPU's, cases, motherboards, etc. but will have some great deals on peripherals, especially monitors.

Funny how this question comes up every year.

More like every month. I swear I've answered it probably 20 times in the last year and a half. It is a valid question, though, so I get why people ask it. It's kind of like the 900 topics asking about a PCPP mobile app.

Funny how I wasn't here last year and this is my first post. Thanks for contributing though.

Didn't mean any offense by it. I actually do find it entertaining that I see this question every year. Never said the question was a stupid one or anything like that.

No.

Black Friday doesn't even have half way decent deals for components.

Heavily depends on what you buy. As Cicero said, it is mostly peripherals (and general consumer electronics) that are discounted the most, core components not so much. Maybe if some retailer somehow still has old stuff in stock they'll price it to move, but I would not expect much. Last year I had a $1500 build list without any peripherals, Black Friday wouldn't have even discounted $100 off the entire thing.

Yeah, I expected as much. I guess I'll still wait until then in case there's some amazing deal, but I won't expect some crazy discount haha. Thanks guys!
