If you want the best graphics card, be prepared to pay for it. Competition between AMD and Nvidia is fierce, and likewise for their partners. But despite all the options, prices rarely fall below the AMD and Nvidia MSRPs, and when they do, it's usually a short-term sale—like Black Friday. This past year graphics card prices have actually been on the rise, thanks in no small part to cryptocurrency mining, and we've adjusted our expectations accordingly.
If you've been eyeing the latest Nvidia and AMD GPUs, waiting patiently for a good time to upgrade, this week is the time to take action. Our best graphics card guide can help you decide which GPU to buy, and armed with that information and these deals, you'll be ready to explore new worlds and boldly go where your former graphics card feared to tread.
