Black Friday 2016: How to Get the Best Deals on PC Hardware

black-friday-2016

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2016 are almost here. If you’re planning on buying any new PC hardware, now is the time to prepare.

One of the most common question we are asked is “When is the best time of year to buy PC hardware?” In the U.S., the best time to buy new PC parts is Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Outside the U.S., you may do better during the holiday sales around Christmas.

However, you don’t need to venture outside the safety and warmth of your home to find the best PC hardware deals. We at Logical Increments prefer the more civilized method: Gluing yourself to the internet and mashing F5 on your browser until you find the best deals.

The Best Time to Buy PC Parts

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.

PC Build: $1,750 Mini ITX Beast Gaming PC

901 Build

Gonzo65’s 901 Build

Inspired by the Holiday sales, I decided to put together a quiet, clean, small Mini ITX build to handle any current game at max settings at 2560×1440. Total build price: $1,750.

It’s a little more expensive and harder to put together than a comparable full-sized build, but it turns out gorgeous and powerful.

If there’s anything you want to upgrade or get for a friend, now is the time. We won’t see better deals on many of these until next November, especially the things that don’t see large incremental upgrades, like cases and power supplies. CPUs, graphics cards, and SSDs will likely slowly drop in price as newer better versions come out, but these prices will still be the best you are likely to see for months.
