Cyber Monday GPU deals 2021: Could RTX 30-series be in stock?

Cyber Monday graphics card deals are, more than likely, going to act as a continuation of what's possible to show up during the Black Friday graphics card deals which are also a little uncertain right now. We can say with relative confidence that it's highly unlikely, but not impossible, that you are going to find deals on the likes of RTX 3060 stock, RTX 3070 stock, and RTX 3080 stock, but we must state that should these elusive GPUs appear over the sales weekend, then RTX 30 series restocks are all but guaranteed to drop on Black Friday, if at all. 

Now, it isn't all about flagship Nvidia RTX GPUs during the Cyber Monday graphics card deals, as we're also hopeful that AMD Radeon RX 6000 video cards will be in stock again, too. Our faith comes from the fact that Nvidia RTX Founders Edition restocks have been more plentiful through the end of the year, especially throughout October, than at any other point since these respective graphics cards were made available. 

As it stands, if you're looking to avoid the (seemingly) endless component chase that so many PC gamers, including ourselves, have been tangled in, then we recommend keeping a close watch on the Cyber Monday gaming PC deals, where we're much more certain that the best gaming PCs from all major manufacturers will be discounted on the day. 

Where will the best Cyber Monday GPU deals be?

It's not entirely set in stone as to where the best Cyber Monday GPU deals will be, but we can heartily recommend Amazon in either the US or UK for its sheer size and expanse. As far as RTX 30 series restocks go, Best Buy right now is leading by example. Here's what you can currently expect from all major retailers right now:

US:
Amazon: What limited RTX-30 stock is available is for an average going rate
Best Buy: Focusing primarily on budget, mid-tier, and previous-gen GPUs
Newegg: Fairly standard prices on RTX-30 series and Radeon GPUs
Walmart: Offering a limited supply focusing on older graphics cards

UK:
Amazon:
Fair prices on RTX 20-series and older GPU models
eBuyer: Some of the fairest prices we've seen on the newest graphics cards
Currys: Decent prices on the Radeon RX 6000 cards and high-end RTX GPUs
CCL Computers: Some of the better prices on RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3080s

When will Cyber Monday GPU deals start?

Cyber Monday is happening on November 29 this year. It's currently not been announced by any of the graphics card manufacturers whether or not restocks on must-have GPUs will be available ahead of this date, but we will keep this page updated as soon as we know what's happening from all the major players (MSI, Gigabyte, Palit, etc.).

Cyber Monday GPU deals: what to expect

There are no guarantees, but it's highly unlikely that the RTX 30-series will make an appearance on Cyber Monday for standard price, let alone be discounted. Last year, there were hardly any noteworthy GPU deals to speak of aside from minor savings on entry-level video cards from reliable retailers. 

Due to the ongoing component shortages, RTX 20-series GPUs have very much retained their value several years after release. In last year's Cyber Monday GPU deals, the kinds of deals we were seeing were the RTX 2060 for $340, down from $350 at Adorama.

It isn't exactly the best outlook, but, given that the RTX 30-series has been 'available' for a year now, there's the potential that previous generation RTX cards and the more entry-level GTX range could be cheaper than last year. 

Is it worth waiting until Cyber Monday to buy a graphics card?

We wouldn't really advise specifically waiting for the Cyber Monday GPU deals as it's very unlikely stock will appear for MSRP and what little graphics cards do go on sale won't be very noteworthy. If you have a chance to buy a new RTX 30 series GPU or AMD Radeon 6000 video card before Cyber Monday for its retail price, then that's the better call to make, especially when retailers like Best Buy are having huge RTX 30 series restock in-store events.

Cyber Monday GPU deals: retailer restocks 

Cyber Monday GPU deals are fairly few and far between at the best of times. However, if RTX 30-series and AMD Radeon 6000 graphics cards are to appear on the day, these are the most likely retailers to carry them. 

RTX 30 series GPUs

Best Buy - RTX 30-series | (Check Stock)
Best Buy is the gold standard when it comes to RTX 30 series restocks over the past few months. In August and October, we saw major GPU restock events (both online and in-store), as well as minor Founders Edition restocks happening often throughout the past few weeks, too, so we strongly recommend watching Best Buy closely.

RTX 30 series GPUs

Amazon - RTX 30-series | (Check Stock)
The world's largest online retailer has many RTX 30 series options through various partner cards (such as those made by MSI and Gigabyte), but you're going to have to spend above the MSRP at the moment. However, given the benefits that some GPUs offer, there are good deals to take advantage of that pop up sporadically for a more than reasonable price.

RTX 30 series GPUs

Newegg - RTX 30-series | (Check Stock)
You will find some of the fairer rates online on RTX 30 series partner GPUs that we've seen for some time, especially on the higher-end boutique models of RTX 3070 and RTX 3080. We would still personally recommend waiting for a potential Founders Edition (Nvidia-made) RTX 30 series restock, but if you're after a video card sooner rather than later, Newegg could have what you need for a price. 


Another great way of getting your desired GPU for less is through Black Friday laptop deals

What's more, take that action to the big screen with some great Black Friday gaming monitor deals, and sit in comfort with Black Friday gaming chair deals to complete your setup.
