Should I Build A PC On Black Friday ?

wow, builds can be........quite expensive. Maybe I will wait for black friday, maybe that isn't the best time to score good deals Idk that's why im asking you.

I was looking at last years newegg add but maybe there were better deals other places. Newegg is a great place to shop but im sure it's not your one stop shop for everything pc....is it?

Anyways I am planing on trying to pick trends on black friday pc part deals from 2015 and 2016 to get an estimate of how much I could save building in 2017. But I could also just ask some cool people and maybe meet some who have built around this time of year, or know better times to build to get good deals.

In computer parts, there is a black friday price drop, but is not a significant as other items such as clothes and pre-built PCs.

Don't forget Cyber Monday (the Monday after Black Friday) is also great for deals on parts.

Halloweeen to New Years is good shopping experience. Only if you know where to look

that is probably my best overall source, get on newegg daily email list. If you have an .edu address, you can get everything shipped for free / 1 year ($29.99 or free month offer), which is 1-3 business day shipping

I also am on Fry's daily email frys.com

While slickdeals has some good finds, it bogs down my computer to near unusable levels.
