    Question Is the Price going to drop?

    Hello, I do not have a lot of knowledge in this field so I wanted to create a thread to get some ideas on when exactly to buy the components. My main question is, are the component price going to drop anytime in the near future? For example, due to a brand new component being released soon?

    I am particularly interested in the following products:
    Intel i5 4460
    Intel i5 4690K
    GTX 970 Gaming Twin frozr


    and also BenQ monitors.

    If the prices are not going to drop anytime soon then I would rather just purchase them now rather than having to wait. Maybe there is like an event or an occasion when these products go on sale? I am assuming a lot of products go on sale during Black Friday but does it apply for computer components as well?

    Well, any help is appreciated. Ciao!

    Buy a r9 390 instead of a gtx 970, it will perform better (especially at higher resolutions), 8gb of vram, and it's the same price.
    I just bought the Powercolor model and I absolutely love it! It'll max any of my games on steam at 1080p.
     
    CPU: AMD Fx8350
    CPU Cooler: Corsair h115i
    Mobo: Gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 Rev.4
    Ram: 16gb Corsair Vengeance Pro
    Storage: (2x) Western Digital Caviar Blue 1tb HDD
    (1x) Mushkin Eco 2 240gb SSD
    Video Card: AMD Powercolor R9 390
    Case: NZXT s340

    Not exactly true. Prices will drop with $15 maximum. Take a look at this:https://************.com/forums/topi...f-skylake-cpus Oh links don't work. Just look for broadwell pricedrop skylake and you'll find plenty of articles.
