[Hardware] Best Graphics Card Deals: Cheap Nvidia and AMD GPUs


Recommended Posts


It's a good time to buy a graphics card this holiday season. With crypto mining crashing and new cards from Nvidia and AMD coming out, there are great deals to be had on RTX 30-series and Radeon 6000-series cards. This season, we're seeing a lot better value on AMD cards than on Nvidia-powered offerings, but you can still find some savings on RTX cards.  We're highlighting all of the best graphics card deals below. Also, check out our list of best graphics cards and our GPU benchmark hierarchy to see evergreen performance data regardless of sales.

Lowest Graphics Card Prices by GPU We've highlighted our favorite Black Friday deals below, but if you're trying to find the lowest price on a particular GPU right now, we've got tables below for all the major Nvidia and AMD cards. Each card's performance is listed, using the combined (geometric mean) of the 1080p and 1440p fps from our GPU

Nvidia's graphics cards — both the new RTX 4090/4080 and the previous generation RTX 30-series — tend to be overpriced. There are a few cards selling right near MSRP, though they're still questionable. For example, the Peladn RTX 3080 10GB is the cheapest 3080 card around (that's not a used or refurbished model), but that's basically an unknown brand. Most Nvidia cards are still selling above their MSRPs, even when on sale.AMD offers quite a bit more value for your money, and it has some excellent deals in the budget to midrange bracket. The RX 6600 dipped as low as $189 on Black Friday, and the cheapest we're seeing is now $209. The RX 6650 XT at $249 is still a great value as well if you can spend more. All of AMD's GPUs are selling below their original MSRPs these days, which they should be considering some of the GPUs are two years old. Of course, some of those MSRPs were inflated thanks to the GPU shortages last year. There's also the upcoming Radeon RX 7900-series to contend with, priced at $899 and $999 and potentially delivering up to 50% more performance than the RX 6950 XT. That's pushing prices down on the older GPUs, which is what we'd expect, whereas Nvidia prices have shot up to "leave room" for the 30-series. We wouldn't recommend paying much more than around $650 for an RX 6950 XT given the upcoming cards.Like Nvidia, there aren't really many deals as such on Intel's Arc GPUs. At least the Arc A770, A750, and A380 are all available for purchase right now, though the A770 16GB Limited Edition is back ordered (again). There's even an ASRock A750 priced below MSRP, so one of the four potential Intel GPUs qualifies as a sale. Performance from Arc GPUs continues to improve, with the A750 and A770 generally beating Nvidia's RTX 3060. It costs less than the Nvidia card as well, and delivers superior ray tracing performance compared to AMD's GPUs. But with rasterization performance roughly matching the RX 6650 XT, the Arc 700-series unfortunately still looks overpriced.
