Best desktop gaming graphics cards

No Comments

Choosing the best graphics card for your system is a very important requirement, whether you’re looking to play the best PC games such as the newly released Call of Duty: Warzone and DOOM Eternal or using your system to perform intensive tasks like video editing or 3D design. A well designed and great graphics card will make your overall computing experience much smoother by making your gameplay more immersive and improving video playback.

Currently, AMD and NVIDIA’s graphics card line-up is more exciting than ever. AMD released their most recent generation Navi graphics cards last year alongside NVIDIA rolling out their RTX Turing (Super refresh) around the same time period. The line-up included many powerful graphics such as the RX 5700XT and the RX 5700 from AMD’s side while NVIDIA released their RTX 2070 SUPER, RTX 2080 SUPER. The options for budget graphics cards also increased with the inclusion of AMD’s RX 5600 and XT variant while NVIDIA also had their GTX 1650 (GTX 1050 Ti refresh with Turing architecture) and GTX 1660 SUPER made available. However, none of the following cards have come anywhere close to NVIDIA’s RTX 2080 Ti graphics card which still to this day is seen as the most powerful gaming graphics card on the market.

Now, let us guide you to finding the best graphics card that we offer. We’ve handpicked the best graphics cards and rounded them up on this list. Whether you’re a designer, content creator, or just a hard-core gamer, you’ll be able to make up your mind while reading through.

1. NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2080 TI
The Most Powerful Graphics Card

GPU: Turing (TU102) | GPU Cores: 4,352 | Core Clock: 1,350MHz (1,635MHz boost) | Video RAM: 11GB GDDR6 14Gbps
Power Connectors: 2 x 8-pin | Outputs: 3 x DisplayPort 1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x USB-C

➕ High FPS Gaming at any resolution including 4K
➕ Ray Tracing capabilities
➕ The fastest non-Titan graphics card
➖ Extremely Expensive, not budget-friendly
➖ Overkill for 1080p displays

If you’re serious about 4K or 1440p gaming and are wanting a powerhouse of a gaming PC, then looking towards the RTX 2080 Ti would be a great choice. It has a 32% faster effective speed gain over last years release, the RTX 2080 Super, and provides powerful performance in all games on the market. This graphics card does come at a cost… a big cost, which may make you steer towards an option a few tiers below it such as the RTX 2070S or 2080S. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the RTX 2080 Ti is nearing it’s two-year mark since it was released in 2018. If you didn’t purchase one in the past two years, buying now doesn’t make too much sense, as NVIDIA’s next-generation graphics cards are rumoured to launch later this year.
