Best Graphics Cards for Gaming
Choosing the best graphics card is the most important component decision when it comes to determining gaming performance (followed by the CPU).
The best graphics card title has been flowing back and forth between Nvidia and AMD throughout this generation. With Nvidia bolstering the RTX 20-series with shiny Super variants, and AMD launching its Navi-based RX 5700 XT and RX 5700, things have certainly been hotting up in the high-end. But it’s the launch of the GTX 16-series Supers and RX 5600 XT that have perked up the mainstream market.
GREAT FOR MAINSTREAM 1080P PERFORMANCE
NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1660 SUPER – The GTX 1660 Super is the sweetest spot of Nvidia's entire graphics card line up. The latest GTX Turing GPU has driven a wedge right between the GTX 1660 Ti and the standard GTX 1660, outperforming the latter and getting mighty close to the gaming pace of the former.
What we like = Matches GTX 1660 TI, Outperforms GTX 1660 , Great-Value GPU At 1080p
GREAT FOR HIGH END 1080P PERFORMANCE
NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2060 SUPER – The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super, according to Nvidia, offers the same level of performance as the RTX 2070 at a much lower price, which makes it a no-brainer for anyone that loves performance 1080p or 1440p. For gamer that want to hit 100+ FPS at 1080p this is card to get but RTX 2060 Super as a graphics card built for 1440p gaming, and provided we're talking about 60fps it does generally succeed
What we like = Good 1080p and 1440p performance , Better value than other RTX cards , 8GB GDDR6 beats the RTX 2060
UNDERRATED FOR HIGH END 1080P/1440P PERFORMANCE
AMD RADEON RX 5700XT - AMD has created a monster of a GPU in the RX 5700 XT. It’s a great card, that’s only just shy of the RTX 2070 Super’s gaming performance. It’s certainly better than the RTX 2060 Super and worth considering if you lean towards team red and don’t really care about ray tracing.
What we like = Great 1080p and 1440p performance, Not far off RTX 2070 Super performance , Cheaper than RTX 2070 Super
GREAT FOR MAINSTREAM 1440P PERFORMANCE
NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2070 SUPER – In terms of value, the RTX 2070 Super is a great option for people looking to build a Mainstream 1440p Gaming RIG. It places at the top of the charts for the FPS per unit of money spent on 1440p gaming with ray tracing.
What we like = GTX 1080Ti performance but a low prices , Great-Value GPU At 1440p
GREAT FOR HIGH-END 1440P PERFORMANCE
NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2080 SUPER – The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super is a more powerful graphics card than its predecessor, the RTX 2080 Super is a great option for people looking to build a High End 1440p Gaming and some 4K Gaming. The RTX 2080 Super retires the original card, offering higher performance
What we like = RTX Turing architecture, 4K gaming performance
BEST OF THE BEST PERFORMACE (MONEY IS NOT A ISSUE)
NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2080TI – The RTX 2080 Ti is the true next-gen graphics card of the Turing GPU generation and, if pure performance was king, it would be an easy pick for the best graphics card. Offering genuine 4K gaming at 60fps in all but the most demanding of PC games.
What we like = Everything (only price)
