Black Friday Is Always a Great Time for PC Gamers | IGN

Black Friday officially begins next week, but the event has been extended far beyond the scope of a single day. Amazon’s Black Friday deals kick off this Friday, and it’s calling the event “Black Friday Week.” What the name lacks in creativity it more than makes up for in its efficiency of data delivery.

All the major online retailers are having Black Friday sales, which means you can look forward to some truly awesome opportunities to save big on gaming PCs, laptops, motherboards, RAM, and possibly even graphics cards. Possibly… but unlikely.

Dell has always come through with the Black Friday deals, and this year looks like the trend will continue. Dell’s Black Friday ad lays out some of the deals, but in my experience Dell Black Friday deals are much wider than its advertisements let on. Expect some surprises, based on previous years.

There’s also a chance, albeit slight, we’ll see Xbox Series X and PS5 restocks from Newegg, since they carry game consoles. In fact, I got my Xbox Series X preorder from Newegg.

It’s highly unlikely we’ll see any deals on the new 30-series cards given the fact it’s nearly impossible to get one at the moment. However, many retailers have been offering prebuilt gaming PCs powered by one of the new RTX 30-series cards. If you want to get your hands on an RTX 3080, for example, your best bet is to buy a prebuilt gaming PC specced out with one. While I don’t think we’ll see deals on prebuilt gaming PCs, I do think we’ll see prebuilt gaming PCs with 30-series cards available for purchase from Newegg, Amazon, Dell and Origin, to name a few.
