We're going to break things into Nvidia and AMD cards, sorted in order of decreasing performance within each. Here's the full rundown on currently available cards.

Nvidia graphics card deals 

GeForce GTX 1080 Ti | 11GB GDDR5X | $719.99

The cheapest GTX 1080 Ti you can buy right now is this Gigabyte Turbo card. It also comes with a copy of The Crew 2 for PC.

GeForce GTX 1080 | 8GB GDDR5X | $529.99

There are a number of GTX 1080 cards for around $550, but this model from Gigabyte is probably the best option, as it's the cheapest non-mini card.

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti| 8GB GDDR5 | $449.99

This week, ZOTAC's 1070 Ti Mini is the least-expensive version you can buy.

GeForce GTX 1070 | 8GB GDDR5 | $419.99

Zotac also takes the crown for the cheapest 1070 card this week.

GeForce GTX 1060 | 6GB GDDR5 | $249.99

The 6GB GTX 1060 is a great all-around card for 1080p/1440p gaming. For the first time in months, you can get a custom card for MSRP.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti | 4GB GDDR5 | $189.99

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is a good pick for gamers on a budget. With 4GB of VRAM, it should handle 1080p gaming just fine.

GeForce GTX 1050 | 2GB GDDR5 | $139.99

If you just want something better than integrated graphics, the GTX 1050 should do the job.

AMD graphics card deals

Vega

AMD's Vega 56 and 64 cards are still being sold at wildly-inflated prices. At the moment, you're far better off buying a GTX 1070 or 1080, respectively.

Radeon RX 580 | 4GB GDDR5 | $259.99

This week, Gigabyte's RX 580 is the cheapest model you can get. It has roughly the same performance as a GTX 1060, but with 4GB of VRAM instead of 6GB. If you can't afford the extra $40 for a 6GB 1060, this is a perfectly good option.

Radeon RX 570 | 4GB GDDR5

Every custom RX 570 card is at or above the price of an RX 580, so I would recommend against buying one. Even the stock card from AMD is just $10 cheaper than the above-linked RX 580.

Radeon RX 560 | 4GB GDDR5 | $152.99

The RX 560 is roughly equivalent to a GTX 1050, but the 560 has twice the VRAM. As such, this isn't a bad deal at all.

Best GPU sliver

In our guide to the best graphics card we’ve detailed the four best GPUs in terms of the overall champion, the best high-end GPU, the best value, and best budget gaming video card. Here's the real-time pricing for each (assuming our pricing engine can find any in stock):

"The best graphics card is one that can strike a balance between high performance and a reasonable price. When the cards launched, the 1070 pricing was substantially better, but with cryptocurrency mining shortages ending, the 1070 Ti is closer to the original MSRP and represents the best overall value. The 1070 Ti ends up about 10 percent faster than the 1070, which also makes it faster in most cases than AMD's competing Vega 56—all while using less power." 

"If you want the fastest graphics card on the planet, it's a no-brainer: the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti wins, hands down."

"If you're not gaming at 1440p, the GTX 1060 cards are the best alternative that won't light your wallet on fire. The midrange GPUs got hit with the brunt of the mining craze, with AMD's RX 570/580 prices skyrocketing. The 1060 prices went up as well, but they've mostly recovered and represent the clearly better value right now."

"The RX 560 4GB is not a high performance graphics card. It's billed as a GPU suitable for lighter esports gaming, including CS:GO, LoL, and Overwatch. It can easily hit 60fps at 1080p in most games at low to medium quality, which is about as much as we can ask of a sub-$150 graphics card."
