When Is The Best Time To Buy A Graphics Card


The best time to buy a graphics card is when the prices are at their lowest. This applies to both new and second-hand cards, meaning that you can get an excellent deal on your next purchase if you check regularly for deals and bargains. The end of each month or quarter (mid-November) tends to be a good time to see some price drops as retailers clear out stock from previous months’ sales; this will often continue into early January until all remaining stock has been cleared. Prices tend to start rising again in mid March as demand picks up again during the first couple of weeks following launch of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 20 series cards such as the GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition which started shipping on 10th February 2017. Pricing remains high through April due to pre-order promotions and other factors such as large cooler designs that increase manufacturing costs, so we recommend waiting until late May/early June before buying due especially if you intend using it with VR headsets and monitors – though we should point out that even then there might still be some price reductions available given how hot these products have become over recent months! However, don’t wait too long: by mid July prices can already start falling off rapidly, particularly once AMD follows suit shortly afterwards with its Radeon RX 500 series lead card launches such as the RX 580 8GB compared against last year’s $200+ RX 480 4GB model which was selling below $300 at times only two years earlier!
