Default Buy now or wait a month?

I'm going to build my computer, and buy most of the parts from newegg. I was wondering if it is better to buy now before Christmas, or wait until after Christmas. When do they have better deals?

right now they have some pretty good deals going on, if you absoloutly positively need a computer right now then go ahead, but it can't hurt to wait and see what happens.

Well the trend is that alot of products get discounted after X-mas, but im not sure if its the same for computer parts or sites like newegg.

yeah thats what i was thinking. i don't absolutely need a computer right now, and i guess if i wait another month or so i'll have more money to spend on it anyways.

save... see what the M2 socket has in store! Of couse, wait for the guys on here to buy up the parts, test, and if it fails, you can always go with a reliable 939 setup.
