Well, the times, they differ. For ram, summer is usually the best time. For comps, there are always these bigs sales, but from what I've seen, X-mas and July 4th are the best times.

When a newer model comes out. (Like the 7800 and the FX-57 just came out) so the prices drop. And Christmas probably has the biggest sales at retail stores.

Save up your money and when you have enough to spring for it ..do it. There is no really good time to buy. I mean you can have sales all year long and all that but it doesn't matter because as soon as you put it togeather it will be old. Technology is running at about 4 months turnover on ram sticks and 6 months on mobos and 1 year to 18 months on CPU's.
All this means is that you have a better chance at putting together a great system with bragging rights only if you do it all at the same time.
Just get the pieces and put it together and enjoy your first build to the max.
