AMD has come a long way in recent years, and has won over enthusiasts and power users with its latest Ryzen platforms and Navi graphics cards. It is no longer just the budget option—you can build a high-end gaming PC around a Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU, or snag a top shelf prebuilt. That does not mean you have to pay top dollar, though. Black Friday is here, and with it come a bevy of discounts.

Some bargains are better than others, as is always the case. There is quite a bit to sift through, and to save you time, we have gone through our already curated collection of Cyber Monday deals and picked out the best bargains we have seen so far on AMD motherboards, processors, prebuilt PCs and more. Whether you are looking to upgrade your PC to a Ryzen foundation, build a new one from the ground up, or want an AMD system that is pre-assembled and just needs to be plugged in, we have you covered.

The best AMD motherboards right now are ones based on the company's X570 and B550 chipsets. They are the latest and greatest with features like PCI Express 4.0 support, and are ready for AMD's new Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. Some of the older motherboards can play nice with a Ryzen 5000 series CPU as well (with a BIOS update), so you don't necessarily have to limit yourself to X570 or B550, depending on the features you want, but you might as well go for the newest if you're upgrading or building from scratch.
