When it comes to GPUs we go fully in-depth. We test dozens of graphics cards year in and year out, and we keep evaluating them months after release as new games and drivers come about.
If you're looking to upgrade or buy a new graphics card today, don't mind all the testing, marginal fps gains, power consumption figures, or overclocking potential. TechSpot's Best Graphics Cards is written to get a simple question answered: Given a certain budget, which is the graphics card you should buy? Fret no more.
With that said, for the past year or so buying a graphics card has been messy, tricky, and for the most part expensive. GPU pricing has been all over the place for reasons we've explained, inflating demand and making it less appealing to buy new or upgrade. But of course, things can always change and they've done so recently for the better.
Our picks are based on current retail pricing, but we’ll also be discussing choices assuming GPUs were selling at the MSRP (manufacturer's suggested retail price) and that’s the price consumers can expect to find under normal conditions. We’ll be giving you our top choices (highlighted in orange) for five different price ranges, starting at $100 or less right up to $700+.
