    I'm planning to build a computer soon and was wondering when it would be best to buy the parts so that I won't get ripped off by buying something that gets discounted a few weeks later. The stuff I attend to get are as follows:

    Antec 900

    Black friday has the best deals of the year. Theres usually a few Easter and Christmas/New Years discounts on sites like Newegg too.
