When Is The Best Time To Buy Computer Components


There’s no best time to buy computer components – it really depends on the item, your needs and budget. But if you’re looking for a new processor or motherboard then we’d advise waiting until March next year at the earliest as this is when Intel will announce a new line of processors that aren’t based on their current Ivy Bridge architecture. The top end processors with 3GHz+ clock speeds are due in early 2013 followed by mid-range models with 2.8GHz+ speeds in Q1 2013 so there’s plenty of time before Christmas to order something now if you need it for Christmas or early January delivery. Processor prices have been dropping steadily over the last few months so now would be a good time to stock up as they won’t drop much further from here!
