When will Black Friday gaming PC deals start?

Black Friday gaming PC deals took place on November 26, though we're still seeing plenty of offers worth writing home about after the fact, especially from the likes of Dell and Amazon right now. 

Black Friday gaming PC deals: What to expect

Dell tends to offer some of the deepest Black Friday gaming PC deals that we've seen in recent memory, most notably with its line of Alienware Aurora computers. Last year, several configurations of the Alienware Aurora R11 were discounted heavily, with one model selling for $1,808.99 down from $2,010 for savings of $202. One Alienware R10 Ryzen model saw $496 off its asking price ($1,763 down from $2,259), which was one of the more extreme offerings of last year's sales event.

It's a similar story on boutique-built gaming PCs from the likes of Newegg as well. An ABS Master prebuilt (featuring an RTX 2060) was selling for $949 down from $1,100 and a Skytech Archangel (GTX 1660 model) was on offer for $749.99 down from $1,100 for savings of $350. It's safe to say, whether you're going for a machine featuring the latest and greatest GPUs like the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 or prefer to spec a little more humbly, that you should be accounted for. 

Is it worth waiting until Black Friday to buy a gaming PC?

Given the trends that we've observed in recent years, where prebuilt gaming PCs often see their most consistent, and deepest, discounts of the year around this time, we personally believe that it's very much worth waiting for the Black Friday gaming PC deals.

It would be a slightly different story if you just wanted to pick up a few choice components, but in terms of going all-in on ready-to-go hardware, you're much better off being able to save a few dollars where you can, especially if you're in the market for an RTX PC, which can otherwise carry a high price point due to demand.

Our price comparison software works day and night to bring you the best prices on some of our favorite gaming PC configurations this side of Black Friday. 

We've touched upon the Alienware Aurora builds (our number one pick for the best gaming PC) because of their small form factor, powerful specs, and long lifespan. Though, if you're in the market for something a little different, the Acer Predator Orion 3000 offers superb value for money with the space to expand and upgrade in the future.
