Q: Is Black Friday a good time to buy a new Nvidia or AMD graphics card?
Black Friday and Cyber Monday — which at this point are essentially the same thing — are a great opportunity to save on big ticket items like laptops, desktop PCs, TVs, phones, and graphics cards. GPUs from every performance range seem to go on sale, and practically anyone can save. If you’re looking for a GPU for gaming, going with the most expensive you can afford is usually recommended, at least as long as your processor can match its performance to avoid bottlenecks. We have a separate roundup of Black Friday CPU and GPU deals if you’re looking to upgrade your processor as well.
Q: How can you tell if Black Friday pricing is actually worth it?
A common occurrence during Black Friday and Cyber Monday involves retailers jacking up prices in the weeks before the event to make the sales seem a lot more significant. It can be very tough to weed out these bogus deals, which is why we put together these curated lists of deals. Retailers will sometimes add a small disclaimer that notifies you about the lowest price in a certain amount of time, and there are tools like CamelCamelCamel where you can get a full pricing history at Amazon.
