Black Friday 2018: The best PC gaming deals on graphics cards, monitors, SSDs and more

Featured post Almost certainly a scene from Black Friday in the 1800s

Black Friday is finally upon us and with it a heck of a lot of deals to trawl through. Yes, I know Black Friday isn’t technically until, you know, this Friday, but try telling that to the millions of retailers who have already jumped the gun in the hope of charming your wallet days in advance. Luckily for you, I’ve done all the hard work for you, as below you’ll find all the best Black Friday deals on a range of PC components, from graphics cards, gaming monitors, SSDs and more. Yes, my soul is now dead inside, but at least you don’t have to go trawling through the internet yourself in search of the best savings. So let’s dive in straight in with the best Black Friday deals the internet has to offer.

If you’ve been thinking about building a new gaming PC recently, now’s the time to bag yourself a sack load of deals and do it on the cheap. Below, you’ll find all the best Black Friday deals from around the web (prices are correct at time of writing, so apologies in advance if things sell out or change by the time you get to them), but if you’d rather skip to a particular component, then why not have a gander at our other Black Friday deals hubs right here? They’re all the same deals, so you might find it easier to browse via component than tackle the beast below:

When is Black Friday 2018?

This year, Black Friday falls on November 23, although these days it practically extends to the entire month of November, hence all the early deals happening right now. And if that’s not enough, Black Friday is now almost always followed by Cyber Monday, which is a purely online affair bursting with even more last-minute discounts. This year, Cyber Monday is November 26.

What to expect from Black Friday 2018

Don’t expect to pick up an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 for half price or anything, but big ticket items like monitors, graphics cards and SSDs can usually be found with some pretty juicy discounts. As well as PC hardware bargains, there will also be sales on games, too. Steam’s Thanksgiving sale usually coincides with Black Friday, and previous years have also seen huge discounts over on Green Man Gaming as well to name just a few.

As for precisely what kind of hardware bits you should be looking out for, then head over to our Bestest Best articles, which can all be found here in easy, clickable form:

How to get the best Black Friday deals

There are some excellent game deals to be had around Black Friday, but the prices are often comparable to sales at other points in the year, such as the Steam Summer Sale. If there’s a game that you really want, then it’s worth keeping an eye on Steam, GOG, and Green Man Gaming – but it’s in the hardware sales that you’ll find the real bargains.

Of course, as much as we all love a big juicy 25% or even 50% off sticker, it’s worth checking that the deal you’re looking at is actually a good one. If you’re shopping on Amazon, for instance, then have a gander at CamelCamelCamel. This keeps track of Amazon product prices all year round, making it easy to spot if a Black Friday deal is really a must-have discount, or whether it’s actually the same price it’s been for the last three months.
