Black Friday is a trying time for our wallets with increasingly tempting PC deals around every corner. While the financial turmoil is real, Black Friday deals make it one of the best times of year to build a PC. You can grab deals on all sorts of parts and peripherals, and every saving can add up to big bucks in the end. Taking advantage of Black Friday sales can see you with a much beefier PC than your budget might have expected, especially with deals like these AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs.

We can thank Tom's Hardware for spotting these CPU discounts available on the US Amazon store that sees Ryzen chips get some hefty savings. The beefy Ryzen 9 7950X gets the best deal, going from the MSRP of $699 and list price of $799 down to $573 saving over $125 USD on this very capable 16 core CPU. That's nearly 30% off which is a pretty sweet deal if you're looking to make a beast of a Ryzen unit.

The next step down sees the Ryzen 9 7900X going for $473 as opposed to its usual $549 USD pricetag. This is followed by the Ryzen 7 7700X which is down to $348 from $399 and even the Ryzen 5 7600X sees $50 off down from $299 to $248. It means that no matter what tier of build you're going for one of these CPUs might be just the right choice, at a very nice price.

The Ryzen 7000 series is based on AMD's latest Zen 4 architecture so with these chips you're unlikely to fall behind any time soon. They will require compatible boards such as an ASRock X670E Pro RS or a B650 series, especially if you're looking to do any overclocking. Some folks are already grinding down the heat spreaders on Ryzen 7000 CPUs to get better cooling so don't rule it out yet.

If you're wanting to build a new hotness AMD Ryzen PC, jumping in one of these CPU deals is a great way to start. Just make sure you've scoped out everything else you need to go with it.

Another thing to be aware of with this new series of chips is you're also going to be looking at DDR5 RAM for your machine. This was pretty hard to get and very pricy for a while, but things are definitely improving. Have a look at our best picks for DDR5 RAM if you need help making choices on this front, but be aware it could be set to get even cheaper as the year rolls on.

Needing all this new kit means going for a Ryzen 7000 series build certainly is likely a complete overhaul of your set-up. You may even want to look at new cooling and power supplies to help with all that processing power. Thankfully, we've been collecting all the best deals we can find to help you save as much money on your future dream build as possible.
