Getting a Cyber Monday graphics card deals is one of the most dramatic upgrades you can make to your gaming PC, and many of the deals seen on Monday have continued into Cyber week. It's your graphics card that defines the visual quality, resolution, and performance you run your games at, and so make it a vital part of your build.
Graphics cards are one of the most expensive PC parts and so many of the deals throughout both Black Friday and Cyber Monday saw only $20-40 on the newest cards. Although that's still the case, there are several major discounts down below, like the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 that has $120 discount.

Best graphics card deals right now
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 6GB | $199.99 (save $30)
Nvidia stopped manufacturing the GTX 1060 last year (frankly, I'm surprised there's still stock left), but it's still faster than the new 1650, keeps pace with the 1660, and will handle 1080p gaming just fine. View Deal
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 8GB | $579.99 (save $119.96)
Get an extra $30 when you apply the coupon before adding it to your cart. (Only two left in stock!)View Deal
EVGA Geforce RTX 2080 Super | 8GB GDDR6 | $669 (save $20)
This is a small discount on a card that can manage 4K 60 fps in many games, bringing it closer to the price of an overclocked RTX 2080. This is the lowest price we've seen for this card, which probably won't get any massive surprise discounts since it launched this year. Use code EMCUUVB45.View Deal

Cyber Monday deals—how long do they last?
Retailers have been rolling out their deals for a couple weeks now, and we saw some decent, if not exceptional, discounts on graphics cards for Black Friday. Cyber Monday should also have some good sales, and usually by the Tuesday after Thanksgiving the sales will start to taper off. However, they won't truly go away until the ghost of Christmas is past.
Not every graphics card is likely to see major discounts. The RTX 2080 Ti is still difficult to find below the nominal $1,199 price Nvidia offers on the Founders Edition, and $999 models (the entry price) are rarer than hen's teeth. Newer models like the RX 5700 series and Nvidia's Super cards are also less likely to see massive discounts, while any remaining models from previous generations that are still in stock could go on clearance. Because the best deals sell out quickly, and many sales only last as long as the supplies last, don't hesitate to grab a card if the price falls more than 15 percent below the normal price.
How to save money on graphics cards during Cyber Monday
You've decided it's time. Your once-proud gaming rig is struggling to run the latest games at the resolution and settings you'd like. It's time to upgrade, but you still want a good deal. But what constitutes a good deal?
1. Know your needs ahead of time
Are you aiming for 60fps at 1080p, 1440p, or 4K? If you only have a 1080p display, there's far less need to go whole hog on the graphics card. Check out our performance analysis articles to see how the latest games run across a variety of hardware, along with our GPU buying guide. More importantly, decide how much you're willing to spend, and don't expect extreme discounts on the latest graphics cards. Black Friday can be nice, but graphics cards rarely drop by more than 20 percent compared to the normal price.
2. Use a few price comparison websites
Speaking of which, PC Gamer is a good place to hang while Black Friday goes down. We'll have people working around the clock to find the best deals available, but it doesn't hurt to learn a few tools of the trade yourself. Price comparison sites like CamelCamelCamel will give you a good snapshot of your desired graphics card's price history. That way you can sort the real deals from the pretenders. For example, we've routinely seen RX 590 cards selling for $190 during the past several months, even though the original MSRP was $279. A real deal on an RX 590 would be around $160 or less.
3. Check for combo deals if you're in need of more upgrades
Chances are, if your graphics card is getting long in the tooth, the rest of your PC could probably use a few upgrades as well. Sometimes you can get an even better deal if you pick up a combo that includes a motherboard, CPU, and GPU. Or maybe even an entirely new PC is the way to go. Today's budget PCs are faster than high-end PCs from five years ago, so think about whether a new graphics card will be sufficient. Maybe you can sell off your current PC or gift it to a friend, then get a more significant upgrade for yourself. 'Tis the season!
Official graphics card prices versus street prices
When new GPUs launch, AMD and Nvidia set official prices for the first cards. Sometimes prices end up a bit higher, but more likely than not, over time the prices will trend downward. The following table compares the launch pricing to the current (as of early October 2019) prices you can find online. Some deals are already showing up, meaning the bottom of the street price range can be a good buy right now. If you find any deals priced significantly below the pre-Black Friday pricing, you know you've found something worth buying.
