Cyber Monday graphics card deals are well and truly here. With the staggered release of the 40 series GPUs that started with the 4090 in October, it's highly likely that we may see some serious price cuts on the current best graphics cards. 

However, one major factor to bear in mind is stock. If you're no stranger to trying to upgrade your GPU in the last few years, you'll know that the market has been utterly disrupted thanks to supply chain issues and chip shortages. The good news is that stock is in a much, much better state than it was last year, so hopefully, there will be more available – and cheaper prices than ever. In 2021, we didn't see too many deals on graphics cards, let alone the 30 series. In the past 12 months, however, we have seen stock for cards become much easier to source, increasing our hopes for sales this year.

Nevertheless, we’ll continue to keep you posted with the best Cyber Monday graphics card deals around as we source them. And we still advise giving our Cyber Monday gaming PC deals a gander; as well as our guide to the best gaming PCs - some of which come pre-equipped with some of the best GPUs on the market. If there is a stock shortage over Cyber Monday, which is likely given its proximity to Black Friday, a prebuilt gaming PC could ensure you get a great GPU without missing more reasonable prices.

Cyber Monday GPU deal's FAQ's

When will Cyber Monday GPU deals start?

Cyber Monday deals will go live on November 28th this year. However, it is likely that we will see discounts start earlier than this following the aftermath of Black Friday so be sure to keep your eyes peeled over the course of the entire weekend. 

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:

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

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

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

In all honesty, we wouldn't really advise specifically waiting for the Cyber Monday GPU deals because of how volatile stock supplies can be in this market. With Black Friday deals starting sooner and sooner each year, it may be that any deals planned for Cyber Monday are subject to stock alone.

If you have a chance to buy a new RTX 30 series GPU or AMD Radeon 6000 video card in the week leading up to Black Friday, then that may be the better call to make, especially when retailers like Best Buy are having huge RTX 30 series restock in-store events. 

Why is it so hard to buy a GPU right now?

A big part of the reason why Cyber Monday GPU deals will be tougher to find this year is because of the massive graphics card shortage - but what led to the shortage in the first place? Well, one of the primary contributors is the pandemic. Shutdowns and supply line restrictions made the components needed to manufacture intricate electronics such as graphics cards extremely difficult for manufacturers to procure. If they didn't have components, they couldn't make the cards, it's that simple. Even the cards they could make were harder to get to retailers thanks to the global shipping crisis.

On top of that, demand for graphics cards is higher than ever before thanks to the growing popularity of PC gaming, and the fact that GPUs were being used for all sorts of purposes as Cryptocurrencies took over different areas of digital industry. The expanse of PC gaming is to be expected, as it's been growing in popularity every year. The latter, however, was completely unseen, and disrupted a market that was already in disarray. People were buying mass quantities of GPUs to fill whole rooms or buildings with them and generate cryptocurrency or related assets. 

When two growing demographics want the same thing for two very different purposes, there's bound to be some fiction. Those are the main reasons why it's been so hard to buy a GPU in recent years. 

Will graphics card prices drop on Cyber Monday?

Like all PC components, Black Friday and Cyber Monday offer people a chance to invest less money for more computing power. According to the Adobe Shopping Report, computers and their components, on average, see a 30% price drop over the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period. And remember, that's just an average figure across the board.

Given that stock shortages are now almost stable, and a new generation of 40 series GPUs is releasing, we expect to see excellent price cuts this November. 

Just be warned, if we do see those price cuts, we might see them for Black Friday first, which means you might run into all too familiar stock shortages if you wait specifically for Cyber Monday deals.

Cyber Monday GPU deals: what to expect

The RTX 4090 has just released, and the RTX 4080 is releasing just before Black Friday. With that in mind, and the fact that stock is in a much better place than it was a year ago, we expect that there will be some cracking GPU deals this Cyber Monday.

The only issue may be the fact that Black Friday deals start earlier and earlier every year. If that's the case in 2022, which we expect it will be, there could be stock issues heading into Cyber Monday. 

The 30 series GPUs, specifically, are highly sought after, and now that it's becoming common knowledge that a new generation of graphics card is releasing, we suspect that a lot of people will be interested in getting the extremely powerful 30 series in Cyber Monday GPU deals.

Last year, the market was in a completely different place, but regardless, we've pulled together a list of GPU deals from Cyber Monday 2021 and added it below. If you want to get a better idea of prices and savings, as well as what models might be available, take a look.

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.

Ever since playing Journey at the age of 15, I’ve been desperate to cover video games for a living. After graduating from Edinburgh Napier University with a degree in Journalism, I contributed to the Scottish Games Network and completed an Editorial Internship over at Expert Reviews. Besides that, I’ve been managing my own YouTube channel and Podcast for the last 7 years. It’s been a long road, but all that experience somehow landed me a dream job covering gaming hardware. I’m a self-confessing PlayStation fanboy, but my experience covering the larger business and developer side of the whole industry has given me a strong knowledge of all platforms. When I’m not testing out every peripheral I can get my hands on, I’m probably either playing tennis or dissecting game design for an upcoming video essay. Now, I better stop myself here before I get talking about my favourite games like HUNT: Showdown, Dishonored, and Towerfall Ascension.
