Best Black Friday PC part deals: Graphics cards
Okay, so, bad news: Graphics cards are either impossible to find or stupidly priced right now. That's been the case for the last couple of years. What's also been true for just as long, though, is that your best bet for picking up a graphics card is to just go ahead and pick up a prebuilt PC. That sucks if you wanted to build your own PC, for sure. But if that's the case, we'd recommend carrying your old GPU over to your new PC until stock has leveled out.
HP Omen 30L prebuilt gaming PC | Extra 10% off
Really want to save on a graphics card this year? Upgrade to the one you want in a prebuilt desktop like this where they don't overcharge you for it. It's the best way to avoid scalpers and over-priced eBay listings. Plus, with HP if you spend at least $1,000 you can use code WINTER10 to save 10%.
While building a PC can be fun and a more affordable way to get a powerful system, some people prefer to grab a prebuilt computer. In addition to not requiring any setup, in some cases, they're also the only way to buy an NVIDIA RTX 30 GPU on Black Friday.
