RE: Best time of the year to build/buy custom gaming pc?
If you want to wait for the best possible prices, then Black Friday / Boxing Day is when we have our biggest sales on PC components, but that is 9 months away.

My thoughts, views, and opinions do not reflect that of Canada Computers and are solely my own.

My rig:
Intel Core i7-4790k
Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming 3
Patriot Viper 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1866MHz
Gigabyte GTX 1060 6GB
120GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD (OS)
1TB Seagate Desktop (Games)
2TB WD Green (Storage)

It's not something I can exactly predict... it depends on which parts are on sale and by how much. There is usually quite a lot on sale during that time. Electronics prices also fluctuate a lot throughout the year. For example, RAM prices have been increasing lately due to component shortages - maybe the shortage issue will be solved throughout the year and prices will go back down.

But in the end, I normally see the biggest discounts on PC components during the holiday period.

P.S. With a budget of $1500, you can normally build a high-end gaming PC at any time of the year.
