Recently, a user wrote to us: “Would you recommend waiting until after the holidays to buy PC parts? A friend of mine told me that was the best time to buy PC parts, because that’s when hardware goes on sale.”
Generally speaking, there’s no “optimal” time to buy PC parts. And if you’re looking to capitalize on sales, it’s probably better to buy during the holidays around Black Friday/Cyber Monday, as opposed to waiting for the holidays to blow over. However, even if you wait for the ultimate sale, you can’t guarantee that the exact things you want will get discounts.
