We’ve highlighted our favorite deals below, but if you’re trying to find the lowest price on a particular GPU right now, we’ve got tables below for all the major Nvidia and AMD cards. Each card’s performance is listed, using the combined (geometric mean) of the 1080p and 1440p fps from our GPU benchmarks hierarchy.

Best Nvidia Graphics Card Prices

Nvidia’s graphics cards — both the new RTX 4090/4080 and the previous generation RTX 30-series — often tend to be overpriced. We’ve axed most of the 30-series, as those cards have been displaced by the newer, better, and often cheaper 40-series parts. The RTX 4070 for instance trades blows with the RTX 3080 10GB, costs at least $100 less, and uses 30% less power; it also supports DLSS 3 Frame Generation and some other new features. Similar arguments can be made for the RTX 4060 Ti against the RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 4070 Ti against the RTX 3090, or the RTX 4080 and 4090 against any previous generation part.

The RTX 3060 and 3050 are really the only Nvidia cards from the Ampere generation that are still worth a look, and even then we have to exercise caution. Nvidia will launch the RTX 4060 in the next month, with a $299 MSRP. If the previously established patterns hold, it will likely easily beat the RTX 3060 12GB in performance and power, though we will miss the 12GB VRAM configuration.

Best AMD Graphics Card Prices

AMD often offers more value for your money, and it has some excellent deals in the budget to midrange bracket. The RX 6600 dipped as low as $189 on Black Friday, and the cheapest we’re seeing is now $199. The RX 6650 XT at $259 is a good value as well if you can spend more.

All of AMD’s GPUs are selling below their original MSRPs these days, which they should be considering some of the GPUs are two years old. Of course, some of those MSRPs were inflated thanks to the GPU shortages of the past two years.

There’s also the Radeon RX 7900-series to contend with, priced at $899 and $999 and potentially delivering up to 50% more performance than the RX 6950 XT. That’s pushing prices down on the older GPUs, which is what we’d expect, whereas Nvidia prices have shot up to “leave room” for the 30-series.

Best Intel Graphics Card Prices

Like Nvidia, there aren’t really many official “deals” as such on Intel’s Arc GPUs. At least the Arc A770, A750, and A380 are all available for purchase, including the ASRock A770 8GB. MSRPs also dropped on some of those (the A750 and A770 8GB) to make the parts more competitive.

Performance from Arc GPUs continues to improve, with the A750 and A770 generally beating Nvidia’s RTX 3060. They cost less than the Nvidia card as well, and (usually) deliver superior ray tracing performance compared to AMD’s GPUs. But with rasterization performance roughly matching the RX 6650 XT, the Arc 700-series at best looks like a tie with its AMD competition.

What to Look for in a Graphics Card Deal

When shopping for a graphics card, consider the following. 

🔎 What resolution, settings do you want to play at? A low-end budget graphics card can play games at 1080p in medium settings, but if you want to play at ultra settings, you’ll need to get at least a mid-range card. As you move up the stack of cards, you can play at 2K resolution and higher settings or, with the priciest cards, 4K.

🔎 How many fps do you consider smooth? Most people consider 30 fps the bare minimum for playability and 60 fps decent. However, if you want less lag for eSports gaming, you’ll want to be able to go to over 100 fps at reasonable settings. See our GPU benchmark hierarchy to find out how each GPU fares. 

🔎 Do you have enough power? Make sure that you have enough capacity from your power supply to support the card. If you’re not sure, use a tool such as Newegg’s power supply calculator to see how much you need. If your power supply can’t handle the card, either get a new PSU or a different card. 

🔎 Will it fit in your case? If you’ve got a small PC case, make sure you check the length of the card against the case’s clearance numbers.
