It's the best time of the year to build a new PC thanks to a slew of sales on computer components from major retailers, like this MSI Ventus RTX 3060 for $336.99 at Newegg (a $40 savings), or this 2TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD for just $158.99 at Amazon, an incredible 68% discount.
While Black Friday deals in general are always a great way to save some money, it's especially good right now for PC builders who have been starved for deals in recent years thanks to the global chip shortage and supply chain issues driving up prices. If you've been holding off on building a new PC because of the cost, now might be the time to get that new build going.
We've pulled together some choice component deals for you to look at for the parts you need at prices you can afford, with a couple of premium items on sale thrown in for good measure.

SanDisk SSD Plus SATA III SSD (1TB): was
$249.99 now $64.99 at Amazon
SATA SSDs are becoming less popular with the growing popularity of M.2 SSDs, but they are still great for long term file storage that you want to access quickly.

Corsair HX1200 1200W 80 Plus Platinum: was
$294.99 now $234.99 at Newegg
