Nvidia's graphics cards — both the new RTX 4090/4080 and the previous generation RTX 30-series — often tend to be overpriced. We've axed most of the 30-series, as those cards have been displaced by the newer, better, and often cheaper 40-series parts. The RTX 4070 for instance trades blows with the RTX 3080 10GB, costs at least $100 less, and uses 30% less power; it also supports DLSS 3 Frame Generation and some other new features. Similar arguments can be made for the RTX 4060 Ti against the RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 4070 Ti against the RTX 3090, or the RTX 4080 and 4090 against any previous generation part.

The RTX 3060 and 3050 are really the only Nvidia cards from the Ampere generation that are still worth a look, and even then we have to exercise caution. Nvidia will launch the RTX 4060 in the next month, with a $299 MSRP. If the previously established patterns hold, it will likely easily beat the RTX 3060 12GB in performance and power, though we will miss the 12GB VRAM configuration.

AMD often offers 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 $199. The RX 6650 XT at $259 is a good 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 of the past two years.

There's also the 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.

Best Intel Graphics Card Prices

Intel Arc A75049.6$199 (Intel Arc A750 Limited Edition)Amazon | Newegg
Intel Arc A38021.3$99 (ASRock Arc A380 Challenger)Amazon | Newegg

Like Nvidia, there aren't really many official "deals" as such on Intel's Arc GPUs. At least the Arc A770, A750, and A380 are all available for purchase, including the ASRock A770 8GB. MSRPs also dropped on some of those (the A750 and A770 8GB) to make the parts more competitive.

Performance from Arc GPUs continues to improve, with the A750 and A770 generally beating Nvidia's RTX 3060. They cost less than the Nvidia card as well, and (usually) deliver superior ray tracing performance compared to AMD's GPUs. But with rasterization performance roughly matching the RX 6650 XT, the Arc 700-series at best looks like a tie with its AMD competition.

What to Look for in a Graphics Card Deal

When shopping for a graphics card, consider the following. 

🔎 What resolution, settings do you want to play at? A low-end budget graphics card can play games at 1080p in medium settings, but if you want to play at ultra settings, you'll need to get at least a mid-range card. As you move up the stack of cards, you can play at 2K resolution and higher settings or, with the priciest cards, 4K.

🔎 How many fps do you consider smooth? Most people consider 30 fps the bare minimum for playability and 60 fps decent. However, if you want less lag for eSports gaming, you'll want to be able to go to over 100 fps at reasonable settings. See our GPU benchmark hierarchy to find out how each GPU fares. 

🔎 Do you have enough power? Make sure that you have enough capacity from your power supply to support the card. If you're not sure, use a tool such as Newegg's power supply calculator to see how much you need. If your power supply can't handle the card, either get a new PSU or a different card. 

🔎 Will it fit in your case? If you've got a small PC case, make sure you check the length of the card against the case's clearance numbers.

    A 3090 for $870... Is this a good deal or not?

    Benchmarks say it'll cut Blender renders in half compared to the 2080 Super. I'd assume the 3090 would also perform well in the UE5 editor. Still, that's a lot for a GPU that appears to perform on par with the 4080 12gb.

    Yeah, that's Amazon for you. Search for any GPU, a bunch of the results will be from completely different GPUs because maybe you want one of those instead? I hate it. Newegg's search tool is 100x better.

    If you do a lot of "professional" work, I'd say it's a decent deal on a 3090. At the same time, if you're doing professional work that leverages a GPU, you probably should have bought a 3090 already and would now be eying the (sold out) 4090.

    The 4080 12GB will probably only be significantly faster in games that use DLSS 3. So you'd be paying a bit less than the 4080 12GB base price for double the VRAM and a card that will do nicely in certain non-gaming tasks. We'll see how the 4080 12GB (aka shoulda-been-4070) performs in independent benchmarks next month.

    I thought the 11600KF deal was pretty enticing, almost the same cost as a 12400F and the performance is roughly the same. But you can overclock the 11600KF.

    I know this one is about GPUs, but I haven't seen this on the list of deals and it's a hum-dinger for an online site. It's actually possible to get this 12700KF for $272 + tax if you have the right kind of Amazon card :

    Not really. Whenever I search for a, lets say, 6900 XT, the first 25+ results are for the specific unit I searched, and only after the 30th+ I get mixed results for other AMD based units and whatever Amazon considers the Nvidia equivalent.

    It could probably be your specific user and it's search history or TH's commission based links affecting the results.

    It looks like it depends a lot on his the availability of whatever you’re searching for. If you look for a popular graphics card, your results will be better than if you look for something that’s either new or old. However, Amazon‘s search is almost completely useless if you try to do something like sort by price, low to high. Then searching for something like RTX 3090 will show dozens of results for crappy low end cards before you ever see a single 3090.

    I know I’ve searched for various GPUs many, many times at Amazon and routinely get terrible matches. Maybe it’s Amazon storing cookies and trying to figure out what to show me, and certainly some of it is the terrible product descriptions some companies post. “GT 730, get this while you wait for RTX 3090!” I don’t know, but I do know Newegg is way more helpful in that it doesn’t fill my results with unrelated garbage.

    I did decide to get that Zotac 3090. I'm in the prosumer / indie category so there's a limit to how much money is available for tech gear. 24GB VRAM and 10k+ CUDA cores is hard to ignore at that price plus Amazon stacking another 10% discount on top for using their credit card. The final price is very close to what I would have paid for a 3080 10GB 2 years ago.

    A lot of the early info about the 4080 has been disappointing. I know the independent reviews and benchmarks aren't out yet. However, the price for performance seems very unreasonable. I'm worried Nvidia is going to keep reaching for the moon while letting AMD and Intel fight for the mainstream and low-end markets.

    @JarredWaltonGPU, check out Hardware Unboxed's review of DLSS 3. Very interesting, to say the least.
    It doesn't bode well for those looking to enable DLSS 3 just to get over 60FPS in high quality games with RT on, at least in its initial, release version. Be interesting to see of Tom's comes to the same conclusion.

    Edit - I just found your pre-release report of DLSS 3, from 15 days ago. Definitely a much softer conclusion, from a quality standpoint. Perspective is necessary, I guess. DLSS 3 is a 'freebie'. If looked at from that point of view, you can either use it if it works, or stick with DLSS 2 or just native frames if it doesn't.
