If you happen to be on the lookout for a new graphics card or want to upgrade to something a little flashier this year, this RTX 2070 Super is on sale at Amazon for $529. That's the cheapest we've seen it—while the listing states a $40 savings, the historic price points towards $25 as a more accurate figure.

With a 1800MHz boost clock speed, 8GB of GDDR6 memory, and real-time ray tracing, the MSI RTX 2070 Super is a great option if you're looking to upgrade from the GTX 10-series series or can't quite justify the expense of an RTX 2080. It's powerful enough to handle some games at 4K, too, making this a good choice if you're thinking of pairing it up with a crisp 4K monitor.

The RTX 2070 Super's performance is only slightly less than the RTX 2080, so you'd be saving anywhere between $100-200 dollars for a minor dip in framerates. It does have higher base/boost clock speeds than the 2080, but the 2080 has 2944 CUDA cores compared to the 2070 Super's 2560 CUDA cores, so you are getting less processing power.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
