Black Friday is a great time to save on electronic products, including PC components. Whether you're looking for a budget-friendly deal or one of the best motherboards out there, there's going to be a good deal to be had for Black Friday.

One thing to bear in mind is the choice of platform for a motherboard. You cannot install an AMD CPU on an Intel motherboard (and vice versa). The Z590 and Z690 chipsets are your best bet for the latest Intel processors (11th and upcoming 12th Gen respectively), while the X570, found on excellent boards like the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming, is your go-to premium AMD chipset.

Black Friday has yet to arrive, but that hasn't stopped retailers like Best Buy from trying to time the market by offering a price guarantee through the promotion period. This makes it possible to shop around early and find deals before the stock is depleted.
