There’s something for everybody in today’s graphics card deals, including GPUs ready to rip through 720p, 1080p, and 1440p gaming. Well, almost everybody. Sorry 4K gamers, but you’ll have to sit this one out.
First up, is the PowerColor Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 for $85 after a $20 rebate at Newegg (which means you pay $105 upfront). The Radeon RX 560 is a great entry-level card for 720p gaming and a fantastic e-sports option. Be aware, however, that this is the cut-down version of the RX 560 with fewer compute units and stream processors, making it more of a glorified version of the older Radeon RX 460. Still, an extremely affordable $85 price tag takes the edge off the lower specs.
Moving up the chain to 1080p gaming with few compromises, Amazon is selling the XFX Radeon AMD 8GB RX 580 GTS XXX Edition for $190. That’s extremely cheap for an 8GB version of the ultra-potent RX 580, and especially one with a custom cooling solution. The downside is this card isn’t in stock right now and won’t ship for another two days, on Friday November 30.
Now, you might be thinking that it’s worth it to pay a little more and go with the RTX 590 instead of the RX 580, which we recently crowned as the best 1080p graphics card you can buy; but given the insanely low sales price of this RX 580 you can’t go wrong with XFX’s awesome 1080p contender. The cheapest Radeon RX 590 options cost $100 more!
Finally, we’ve got the Zotac Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti AMP! Edition for $359 at B&H Photo and Video. This is a solid option for 1440p gaming—even beyond 60Hz—and comes packing 8GB of VRAM. When we reviewed the GTX 1070 Ti last November we called it the best 1440p graphics card, and generally it still is, especially if you overclock it. Like the RX 580 at Amazon, this card is back ordered, but you can still order it and B&H hopes to start shipping it on Tuesday, December 11. Graphics card this powerful at these prices are worth waiting a few days for.
