I’m sorry if this is in the wrong sub forum. BUT, if I was going to buy my PC piece by piece what parts would be the best part(s) to try to buy on Black Friday/Cyber Monday?

Like what parts are likely to have the deepest discounts at that time? I’m buying everything but a monitor

Dont normally go on sale on black friday

Are duopolies and have no incentive to go on sale during black Friday

Try to look for deals like on b450 motherboards, 7200 RPM drives and SSDs, and GTX 1070(Ti). It’s just a matter of knowing what you are looking for.

Likely. Just look through the major sales on Newegg, superbiiz, etc.

Was there any parts you left out for a full pc build? Because I’m looking to do the same thing and mine ended up being a little more expensive with possible lower capabilities.

where do you shop?

When do the black friday deals start? I am putting a new pc together now but I have to fly out of country on the 27th so I'm not sure if I have enough time?
