The best Black Friday deals 2017


If you’re looking to build a new gaming rig or upgrade an existing computer, Black Friday is a great time to do it: Plenty of deals on PC components are available all weekend long. The one exception is the most expensive one — graphics cards, where we’re not seeing a ton of deep discounts around. Still, there are deals to be found if you look carefully, which we’ve done for you! Check out all the Black Friday offers below, organized by component. (Note: We’ve included some deals that are currently sold out, just in case they come back in stock before the end of the sale. And Micro Center’s deals appear to only be available in-store.)

Graphics cards

Demand fueled by cryptocurrency miners has driven GPU prices sky-high, where they’ve stayed for most of the year. Even around Black Friday, you’ll be lucky to find cards near the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. A few deals are out there, but note that some of them involve mail-in rebates.

Nvidia

GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

Nvidia’s suggested retail price for the GTX 1080 Ti is $699, but the card typically sells for well above that. Here are two of the best deals available for Black Friday:

  • MSI Aero 11G OC GTX 1080 Ti: $699.99 @ Micro Center
  • MSI Armor 11G OC GTX 1080 Ti: $719.99 @ Newegg

Note the bonus offer available on both of those cards: Through Nov. 29, most GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti purchases come with a voucher for the PC version of Destiny 2. Just make sure you’re getting the game bundle deal!

GeForce GTX 1080

The GTX 1080 is significantly cheaper than the GTX 1080 Ti, with an MSRP of $549. And you can snag it for $500 with some Black Friday deals.

  • Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080: $499.99 @ Newegg after $30 rebate (regularly $569.99)
  • Asus Turbo GTX 1080: $499.99 @ Amazon
  • Gigabyte GTX 1080: $499.99 @ Newegg (reg. $539.99)

GeForce GTX 1070

As one of Nvidia’s most popular 10-series cards, the GTX 1070 ($379 MSRP) doesn’t have a lot of Black Friday deals available — and a few are currently sold out.

  • Asus Turbo GTX 1070: $409.99 @ Micro Center
  • Gigabyte Windforce OC GTX 1070: $399.99 @ Newegg (reg. $439.99) – out of stock

*This card requires a liquid-cooled PC.

GeForce GTX 1060

If you’re only gaming at 1080p resolution, a GTX 1060 will do just fine. The MSRP is $199 for the 3 GB version and $249 for the 6 GB version.

  • Asus 3 GB GTX 1060 Phoenix Fan Edition: $172.99 @ Newegg after $20 rebate (reg. $214.99)

  • Zotac GTX 1050 Ti Mini: $129.99 @ Amazon (reg. $158.88)
