In general, this is a terrible time to buy a high-end graphics card. It's hard to find an RTX 3080, 3070 or 3090 card, because they're constantly sold out. AMD's Radeon 6000 series cards are launching soon, but there's a great chance that they'll be sold out just as quickly as their Nvidia-powered counterparts.
However, as we are in the thick of the holiday deals season, there are still great deals on cheap graphics cards to be had. Most of the savings we're finding are on low to mid-range cards that haven't been directly replaced yet. We're talking mainly about cards from Nvidia's GTX 1650 - 1660 series or perhaps the Radeon RX 5600 - 5700 series. Unfortunately, the deals are expiring fast, so please be patient if the pickings are slim - we'll update as more become available.
If you're building or upgrading a PC and have $400 or less to spend on a graphics card, these holiday GPU deals could be just what you're looking for.
