We can happily report that there are some good cheap graphics card deals around today, and it feels good to be able to type that. The latest and greatest Nvidia and AMD GPUs are still prohibitively expensive, but genuinely powerful 1080p graphics cards are available at the sub-$250 mark.

Following the launch of the RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super, and RTX 4070 Super it's possible to buy any of these cards for something close to its MSRP. It will be a while before we see any serious deals on these graphics cards, but there are still the occasional discount with small savings.

There are savings on last-gen graphics cards, but they're a tough sell in 2024. Both AMD and Nvidia have more affordable versions of their RDNA 3 and Ada Lovelace architectures and that makes some of those expensive old cards even harder to recommend, unless the deal really is a steal. Few are.

The RX 6600 is a quality 1080p GPU now that its price properly reflects its status. At the $200 price point, we're getting a budget graphics card that delivers high frame rates in the latest games at top 1080p graphics presets. PC gaming doesn't have to cost a fortune, you know?

The Intel discrete graphics cards have only gotten more relevant since their inauspicious launch. With successive driver releases increasing performance and now a significant price drop, the A750 is one of the most tempting budget GPUs around. It's a bit more power-hungry than AMD's RX 6600 but is a super capable 1080p card knocking both RTX 3050 and RTX 3060 out of the value GPU stakes.

With stock of the RX 6600 XT starting to dwindle it seems like the faster RX 6650 XT is taking its place as one of the best budget GPUs around. It's an 8GB GPU, with effectively the same core specs as the RX 6600 XT, but with a little higher clock speed boost.

As the budget baby of the RDNA 3 family, the RX 7600 faces a lot of competition. Not just from Intel and Nvidia, but from AMD's previous generation of cards too. At this price, though, it's quite a bit cheaper than the RX 6700 XT and in some games, it performs nearly as well. Not the most exciting of graphics cards, though.

You can score a whole heap of memory here for under $300. Admittedly, the rest of the Intel card isn't quite up to par with the competition from AMD and Nvidia in terms of consistency of performance. But if you need lots of memory for other reasons, this is the way to go.

If you must have Ada Lovelace, Nvidia's latest gaming architecture, the cheapest way in is this RTX 4060. Faster than the RTX 3060 but the price suggests it should have been better. You do get the full DLSS 3.5 suite, though, and it's pretty decent at encoding video for streaming.

The RX 6700 is still a great way to score a high amount of VRAM on a more modest budget. This version comes with a solid, triple-fan cooler and a decent price tag, and kicks the RTX 4060 for the same money. That said, you can sometimes score an RX 6750 XT for only a small amount more, and that card is faster and has more memory.

Coming in at the same price as the plain ol' RX 6700 XT (which happens infrequently), this version comes with higher core and memory clocks. That generally makes for higher frame rates in games, though that does depend on what you're playing. It's worth a look, especially for all that speedy VRAM.

This graphic card was launched over three years ago but it's still very potent, especially if you're after ultra-high fps in 1080p shooter games. It has bags of VRAM on a wide memory bus, backed up with mountains of cache. Makes the 8GB GPUs look miserly in comparison.

The RTX 4060 Ti might have had a bit of a rocky reception with that 8GB of VRAM, but we found it performed very well in our review and it makes a very solid mid-range performer, particularly with the ability to take advantage of DLSS 3 and Frame Generation. This is a small twin-fan model that should still run cool and quiet and delivers a lot of gaming performance in a super-efficient fashion.

The Radeon RX 7700 XT might lose out to its bigger brother, but if you're building a system on a budget it still makes a great mid-range card for solid 1440p gaming, as we found in our review of the Sapphire model. This one also has a nice solid triple fan design, so should run cool and quiet.

At this price point, the best card to get used to be the 6800 XT but now we're starting to see deals like this one, where the newer 7800 XT has the same price tag. It's only a little bit faster than the card it's replaced, and admittedly it's pretty much at MSRP, but you're still getting a lotta GPU for the money.

The RTX 4070 is a popular card and can be difficult to find at a discount, but it's important to remember that this price is cheaper than it was at launch. You're getting nearly RTX 3080 performance but with all those nice RTX 40 features. This Galax model uses the traditional 8-pin PCIe power connector, rather than the new 12VHPWR one, which makes it far easier to install as an upgrade.

The RX 7900 XT is one of the more recent releases out of AMD, at least in the global market. It started out as a special edition for the Chinese gaming market, but it was rolled out globally to help the red team compete with the green guys. It's a good deal, too, being big chunks of the RX 7900 XT but with a bit less of everything. It's pretty much MSRP everywhere but occasionally dips under with a small discount.

The RTX 4070 Super is only a few months old, so you won't see any discounts for a good while yet. Is it worth $50 more than the regular RTX 4070 and $100 more than the RX 7800 XT? Tricky to answer, so check out the benchmarks in our RTX 4070 Super review to see if it's the right choice for you. There's little else to choose from at this price, but at least you can get them at MSRP.

Seeing a bunch of RX 7900 XTs selling for well less than the original MSRP is a welcome sight, and while they might get overshadowed by some of Nvidia's greatest, they deliver a huge amount of performance. What we like about the ASRock in particular is that it should run quieter than your average RX 7900 XT. We all could do with a little less noise from our PC.

Just like the RTX 4070 Super, the RTX 4070 Ti Super is a relatively new model, so discounts aren't to be found anywhere yet. Just think of it as an RTX 4070 Ti selling at its original MSRP but with more VRAM and a small, but handy, performance boost. This Zotac model is as solid as they come and you really shouldn't be paying more than this price for any other version.

Just like with the RTX 4080, it's hard to find AMD's RX 7900 XTX discounted down below its MSRP price. But good deals can be found and we'll happily take any money knocked off the price of a high-end GPU. The Radeon RX 7900 XTX is stupidly fast and there are plenty of good cooling designs for this card, including this one.

While Nvidia's replacement for the RTX 4080 is only a little bit faster, the MSRP of the RTX 4080 Super is a fair bit lower at $999. We've found just one card at that sorta price today, however. That's this PNY, which should be a pretty cool and quiet card.

RTX 4090 pricing is still silly money, but at least with this card you're getting MSRP-like prices, and it's a chonky , slightly overclocked edition, too. What with all the export ban nonsense, the RTX 4090 was way up over $2,000 for a time. Now it's back down to something vaguely sane. And it's still by far the fastest graphics card on the planet. Or off it, for that matter.

The RX 6600 is a quality 1080p GPU and great value for money if you can score it cheap enough. You're getting a budget graphics card that delivers high frame rates in the latest games at top 1080p graphics presets. At least AMD and Intel are bringing GPU pricing down.

Nvidia's cheapest Ada Lovelace model rarely gets much of a discount but this one is the best offer I've seen so far. It performs around the same as the Radeon RX 7600, so what are you getting for the extra £40? The answer is DLSS 3.5 upscaling and frame generation. In some games, it's worth the additional money, especially if you're a fan of ray tracing effects.

AMD rules the graphics card market's mainstream and budget ends, and the RX 6750 XT is the best GPU at this price point. The RTX 3060 Ti is more expensive and a little bit slower in many games. Its popularity means supply is somewhat limited so you might need to wait a bit until it's back in stock.

The fact that this is an RTX 4070 retailing for below the standard Nvidia MSRP for the card is the thing to really pay attention to. This is an RTX 3080 with benefits. It's mostly quicker than the previous-gen card and comes with the excellent DLSS 3 Frame Generation tech, too. The only problem is the RTX 4070 Super can be found close in price and it's a faster card.

At launch, the RX 7900 XT was far too close to the RX 7900 XTX in price, and not close enough in terms of performance. Thankfully, the pricing has dropped dramatically for this second-tier RDNA 3 card, making it a far more tantalising prospect than before.

The cheapest one of those is just £40 less. With more VRAM and a small but handy performance boost, the 4070 Ti Super is a decent enough successor, though you'll need to wait a while before the old Ti has dropped more in price.

AMD's mighty RX 7900 XTX is now easy to find well under its original MSRP and it's a seriously powerful graphics card. While it's not as potent in ray tracing and AI/machine learning as Nvidia's equivalent cards, it handles standard rendering extremely well and you're getting more VRAM than you could ever want.

With an MSRP of £999, the new RTX 4080 Super is clearly a better choice than the original 4080, as it's cheaper and a little bit faster. However, finding one below MSRP is a real struggle at the moment, as stocks are low. This Inno3D model is perfectly decent, if nothing spectacular, and priced rather nicely. If you can call spending over £1000 on a graphics card 'nice'.
