    Are the deals between Black Friday and Cyber Monday really worth waiting for?

    I'm planning on building a new computer, and was gonna buy the parts now, but would it really matter if I waited until then? I don't really want to, but with my $600 budget (that's before mail in rebates), would I be able to get better parts at the same price then? This is what I'm getting, plus the $40 Windows 8 upgrade.

    You will likely find some discounts but don't go wait in line for stuff. Not worth it. Sit at home and keep an eye on one of the many websites that posts good deals that it finds (slickdeals, fatwallet etc).

    Absolutely worth waiting for.

    Yes. But at the same time you have to hope you can get them before they get sold out.

    Yeah they are worth it. I got 16gb for like 60$.

    If anyone sees any good deals for headphone amps or cpu fan heatsink give me a message.

    Given how close we are to Black Friday I would say it's worth waiting. I would be checking Newegg, Amazon and Slick Deals a few times a day over the next week.

    Don't forget NCIX(US Store) and TigerDirect as well.

    The Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals will be posted soon, with your budget I would wait. The price performance ratio around that level is huge, if you can get a good deal on something you will get a lot better performance.

    Luckily all my purchases I did earlier got cancelled, so I can wait now. Yay.
