Which parts can I buy in the holiday season?

Hey Tomshardware,

With Black Friday, Cyber Monday and of course Christmas coming up I was wondering if I could make use of the sales. I'm planning to build a PC, but don't have my full budget yet. Which components should I look out for the upcoming weeks without having to worry about the components getting outdated? I was personally thinking a case, storage, RAM and a PSU. So what do you guys think?

  1. Something that wont get outdated? SSD, RAM (ddr4), cases are pretty cheap in general and keep an eye out for a good psu that may be on sale
    If you find a good deal on a processor I would grab it. Same with a gpu but the 1080ti should be coming out next year so its not too far ahead of us
    I dont know when Kaby Lake desktop processors are coming out, youll have to look that up. I believe q2 2017 but I may be wrong
  2. take care of Black Friday, Cyber Monday deals...

    often they put unwanted hardwares on sale because of bad quality stuff

    i would say if you see a good cpu price ..do not wait , buy it right away

    Honestly I don't think Kaby Lake is going to be worth waiting for. It will be like the Devil's Canyon update to Haswell - only a marginal improvement on an existing platform. If you're buying a new rig it won't make any difference between going with Skylake or Kaby Lake.

    Things that will get discounted: Storage (HDs, SATA SSDs), RAM, some cases (mainly in the $50 - $100 range), monitors, maybe some power supplies.
    Things that won't get discounted: CPUs, high end GPUs, decent quality cases, and any high end power supplies
