Graphics Cards

There are many graphics cards on sale this Black Friday, which is a major (and exciting) change from last year.

Note: The difference between ASUS STRIX models and other models is that the STRIX has an option to disable the fans when the GPU is not under a heavy load.

nVidia cards:

  • MSI GTX 750 Ti: $115, or $90 after rebate (list price $130, for a discount of 31% after rebate). The discount alone is not much (real price is ~$110), but the rebate makes it attractive.
  • ASUS GTX 750 Ti$120, or $90 after rebate (list price: $130, for a discount of 31% after rebate). The 750 Ti is often found for around $110, but this is still a good deal with the rebate. A GPU that packs a punch for less than $100.
  • ASUS GTX 950 STRIX: $160, or $140 after rebate (list price: $170, for a discount of 18% after rebate). You can often find non-STRIX GTX 950s for $150, so this isn’t much of a discount unless you want a STRIX model.
  • MSI GTX 960$185, or $165 after rebate (list price: $230, for a discount of 30% after rebate). This 960 is often sold for $180, so this is only a deal with the rebate.
  • ASUS GTX 960: $180, or $150 after rebate (list price: $210, for a discount of 29% after rebate). You can often find other brand models of the GTX 960 for $180, but with the rebate this is a decent deal.
  • ASUS GTX 960 STRIX$210, or $180 after rebate (list price: $240, for a discount of 25%). Note that you can often find non-STRIX versions of the GTX 960 for around $180, the same price as this item with rebate.
  • ASUS GTX 970 STRIX: $300, or $270 after rebate (list price: $350, for a discount of 30% after rebate). You can usually find a GTX 970 for $330, but this is a great deal on a very popular graphics card. Will play almost anything at 1080p with 60 FPS.
  • EVGA GTX 970$300 (list price: $360, for a discount of 17%). Again, you can usually find the GTX 970 for $330, but $300 ain’t bad.
  • ASUS GTX 980 STRIX: $470, or $420 after rebate (list price: $520, for a discount of 19% after rebate). You can often find the GTX 980 for $480. Still a great deal with the rebate.
  • MSI GTX 980$440, or $410 after rebate (list price: $520, for a discount of 21% after rebate). Great discount on a powerful card, especially with the rebate.
  • Gigabyte GTX 980: $470, or $450 after rebate (list price: $500, for a discount of 10% after rebate). Decent discount, though not as cheap as the GTX 980 linked above. When those get sold out, get this!

AMD cards:

  • XFX R7 360: $100, or $80 after rebate (list price: $110, for a discount of 27% after rebate). With or without the rebate, this is a good deal.
  • XFX R7 370$120, or $100 with rebate (list price: $150, for a discount of 33% with rebate). The 370 is often selling for $130, but this is still a great deal with the rebate.
  • SAPPHIRE R7 270X$160, or $140 after rebate (list price: $180, for a discount of 22% after rebate). You can usually find the 270X for $160, so this is only a deal with the rebate. Still a great midrange card.
  • Gigabyte R9 380: $170 (list price: $210, for a discount of 19%). A good price for a very good card. No rebate needed!
  • XFX R9 380: $173, or $143 after rebate (list price: $200, for a discount of 29% after rebate). The 380 can often be found for $180, but this is a great deal with the rebate.
  • ASUS R9 380 STRIX: $200, or $180 after rebate (list price: $230, for a discount of 22% after rebate). You can find non-STRIX models for around $180 normally. Only a good deal if you want a STRIX model.
  • SAPPHIRE R9 290: $220, or $200 after rebate (list price: $250, for a discount of 20% after rebate). This is an excellent deal on a card that is essentially as powerful as an R9 390.
  • GIGABYTE R9 390: $280 (list price: $330, for a discount of 15%). Great price on the 390, with no rebate hassle.
  • XFX R9 390: $290, or $260 after rebate (list price: $330, for a discount of 21% after rebate). A 390 for even a little cheaper than the ASUS model.
  • ASUS R9 390: $305, or $275 after rebate (list price: $340, for a discount of 19% after rebate). The R9 390 is often available for $320, so this is still a great deal with the rebate. Will play almost anything at 1080p with 60 FPS.
  • ASUS R9 390X: $390, or $360 after rebate (list price: $440, for a discount of 18% after rebate). You can often find the 390X for $410. This is still a good deal for a powerful card, especially with the rebate.

CPUs

Processors rarely go on sale, so any discount is a special occasion as far as we’re concerned.

  • AMD FX-6300$90 (list price: $110, for a discount of 18%). A very popular mid-tier CPU for a decent discount.
  • AMD FX-6350$110 (list price: $130, for a discount of 15%). The overclocked version of the 6300!
  • AMD FX-8320$120 (list price: $150, for a discount of 20%). Great discount on a more powerful AMD CPU.
  • Intel Core i3-4170$105 (list price: $125, for a discount of 16%). A nice discount for a solid mid-range CPU.
  • Intel Core i5-4690K$210 (list price: $250, for a discount of 16%). You can often find the 4690K for ~$225, but Intel CPUs rarely go on sale, so grab it for whatever discount you can find.

Power Supplies

  • CORSAIR CX430$35, or $15 after rebate (list price: $50, for a discount of 70% after rebate). A decent PSU for an entry-level system. Practically free with the rebate.

  • SeaSonic SSR-650RM$80, or $70 after rebate (list price: $110, for a discount of 27% after rebate). There is nothing better than a quality, Gold, modular PSU!

Cases

  • Rosewill CHALLENGER: $40, or $25 after rebate (list price: $60, for a discount of 58%). For $25, this is a very good case.
  • Corsair Carbide Series 500R: $90, or $70 after rebate (list price: $140, for a discount of 50% after rebate). An excellent mid-tower case.
  • Rosewill THOR V2: $90, or $70 after rebate (list price: $150, for a discount of 53% after rebate). With the discount and rebate, this is another good deal.
  • Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced: $130, or $100 after rebate (list price: $180, for a discount of 44% after rebate). A great full tower case for a spectacular price.

Keyboards

Mouse

  • Razer Deathadder: $33 (list price: $100, for a discount of 66%). Real price is about $50-$60, but this is still a great mouse on a major discount.

  • GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3: $110, or $90 after rebate (list price: $130, for a discount of 31%). With the rebate, this motherboard is a great companion for the AMD CPUs that are also on sale.
  • ASUS Z170 PRO GAMING: $145, or $120 after rebate (list price: $170). With the rebate, this is a huge discount on a very good motherboard.

CPU Cooler

Conclusion

Last year, we lamented the lack of graphics card in the deals. This year, we have a flood of graphics cards available in every price bracket! Enjoy the sales, folks!

Ethical Disclaimer/Disclosure:

  • A common practice when it comes to these major sales is to increase the “original” price before applying the discount, so that buyers think that they are getting a bigger discount. We have tried to point out the true original price whenever the official original price is very far from reality.

    Would the xfx ts650g and/or the rosewill challenger case be compatible with your ‘Great’ build?

    • Matthew Zehner

      As long as you use the same sized motherboard (such as an ATX) and buy a case that supports that, then they should be compatible!

  • Serathis

    Bleh, no good sale on the GTX 970 🙁
