So how much should my computer parts prices go down? I know we won't know until Black Friday comes but I want an estimate based on the prices during the last few black fridays

I mostly want the case, and a bunch of white parts so it will match

i switched out the 1060 for a 480 and added nzxt kraken g10 and the nzxt kraken so my GPU can be crossfired later and so that everything is white

i can probably find some open box items on microcenter or something to knock it down a few bucks but there are no rx 480's open box in my area right now

I can change the color scheme too i guess, imo all white looks a lot better than all black or something

all black, no need for cable sleeves because cables are already black right?

New, top-end computer tech typically does not drop in price on or near Black Friday. You *MIGHT* find one or two deals, but I would fully expect your computer, as listed, to cost pretty much the same as it does now.

If you're flexible on your parts list you can save a few bucks. Ie, make a list of acceptable PSU's, RAM, etc, wait to see if any of them get put on sale then get that one. It's hit or miss though. And your core parts, processor, mobo, and GPU aren't likely to budge much. There will be a bunch of free shipping offers though.

Oh NO! Does this mark the official start of the "Waiting for Black Friday" season? NO, you won't be able to find a GTX1080 for half price. If the adv. says "Quantities Limited", they mean a quantity of 1 and you didn't get it. If the adv. says "Receive a "Free coupon for XXX", it ain't FREE!
