If you’ve been looking to upgrade your gaming rig without breaking the bank, today’s your day. Both B&H Photo Video and Newegg have some great deals on AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.
First up is the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2070 AMP for $500 at B&H Photo after you clip the coupon on the product page. The GeForce RTX 2070 is a great 1440p and entry-level 4K card that comes with Nvidia’s new Turing GPU, which enables ray tracing capabilities and AI-enhanced graphics for more realistic gameplay. Few games take advantage of the Turing GPUs yet, but this card offers solid good future-proofing while kicking butt in today’s games, too.
Next up, an 8GB MSI Radeon RX 580 is $155 after a $30 rebate and the coupon code EMCERES23. That means you’ll pay $185 upfront. The Radeon RX 580 delivers an incredible no compromises 1080p gaming experiences that let’s you play most AAA games at a solid 60 frames per second with the settings cranked. Since this model comes with 8GB of onboard VRAM, it games respectably at 1440p resolution with High graphics settings, too.
If Newegg runs out of the RX 580, or you prefer Nvidia GPUs, then check out the MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X 4G for $160 after a $10 rebate card. This is a solid card for 1080p gaming, although it’s a significant step down from the RX 580, so opt for the deal above if you can. You can expect 30fps with High graphics settings, roughly matching the console gaming experience, or 60fps with the visuals set to Medium quality.
