Best time to BUY Computer/Parts?

Good afternoon everyone!!

I am an old school PC gamer, but am a complete newbie to compture hardware in general. I know the basic parts and how a comp runs but have never assembled a computer myself. That being said I can either buy a pre-built budget gaming rig or buy all the parts and have a friend assemble it for me.

My Questions are these:

1. Are there any general times when pre-built comps/parts are at lower prices?...i.e.(Black Friday or after Xmas)?

2. I will be using budget parts; how often is there a fluctuation in prices between parts?...i.e.(A new GPU or processor series is released-in general the months between series/models) And if so, are the price drops that substantial to notice?

To narrow it down alittle my preferred time-line is from now, Novemeber, to the end of March.

Thank you guys.

Black Friday has deals. Most online retailers have daily or weakly deals! Often new releases of components (generation change) causes lowered prices on previous generation.
