Nvidia's embargo on performance numbers for the GeForce RTX 2070 is now in the rear view mirror, and there are plenty of reviews to help you decide if this is the right graphics card for you. If you decide it is—which also means betting on real-time ray tracing and DLSS performance being acceptable with supported games arrive—then the next step is figuring out which specific SKU to buy, and where you can find the best deal. Well, we're here to help.
You could always head to Nvidia's website and buy a Founders Edition for $599 (opens in new tab). As with the other GeForce RTX cards, the Founders Edition is a better proposition this round. Gone is the blower-style cooler, replaced by a more custom-oriented solution, and the boost clock is overclocked to boot (1,710MHz, up from 1,620MHz).
That's far from the only option, though. Nvidia's hardware partners have come out of the gate with custom variants of their own, including models both big and small. Some of them revert to the old blower-style cooler that Nvidia dumped for this round, if that's what you prefer. The vast majority use burlier coolers, some with as many as three fans.
Most cards are only available for pre-order right now—there are a bunch on Newegg (opens in new tab), for example—but we'll update this post as more become available:
Another route is to buy a pre-built gaming PC with a GeForce RTX 2070 inside. AVADirect, CyberPowerPC, Origin PC (opens in new tab), and Xidax PC all have GeForce RTX 2070 options. Here's a handful that we found for sale from the major retailers as well:
