Opportune Purchasing Time


Sep 24, 2011
Hey all,

I'm in the market for a new card and am looking for the best time to purchase one. I've got several models in mind, but don't know if the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales in the past had GPUs included. For the most part looking at getting either a GTX 460, a HD 6790, or a HD 6850. These are the questions i had:

Does anyone know if GPUs usually go on sale during these days (BF or CM)?
If GPUs do go on sale, any reason to believe these specific models would?
Also, I don't know much about planned projects for either manufacturer. When do new cards usually come out each year? Is there a way I can check on them?

Thanks in advance!
