This year's result may look very different than 2019's, due to the effect of supply constraints, the timing of new CPU and GPU launches, and the overall economy.

Black Friday deals may be mostly fluff, but don't count them out for PC builds. November's unique mix of loss leaders, variety of sales, and combo deals mean you can net some serious savings.

In fact, as an annual tradition, I've challenged myself to see just how cheap you can build a gaming PC using Black Friday deals. As you'll see in the results for 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019, the systems got better steadily while also dropping in price nearly every year. Good stuff.

For 2020, I'm starting this article early with the deals I'll likely use in my build lists—that way, you can follow along and snag the same discounts as they're added. Come next Friday I'll reveal my final picks, along with a breakdown of the selections. I anticipate a tricky Tetris-like puzzle this year, but we'll see what next week brings.
