Buying tips: 3 of the best graphics cards to look for on Cyber Monday
The best graphics card on sale right now
The Nvidia RTX 3090 has long been synonymous with high-performance graphics at an inaccessible price, but with the release of the RTX 4090 last month, this card is now going on sale to make room for newer inventory. It's not as powerful as the RTX 3090 Ti, but between price and performance, we think this card hits the sweet spot for a premium Cyber Monday graphics card deal in a way the RTX 3090 Ti simply doesn't.
- Unstoppable performance
- Excellent cooling
- Great value for creative professionals
- Extremely expensive
- Massive footprint
- Very power-hungry
The best graphics card for the masses
The Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti has long held a special place in our hearts as the best graphics card for most people, thanks to its excellent 1080p and 1440p performance and great pricing, this is the perfect card for those who haven't made the jump to 4K thanks to the much higher 4K monitor prices. These are also already cheaper than most GPUs out there, and with Cyber Monday, we expect to see some great discounts on these.
- Excellent 1080p performance
- Solid ray tracing performance
- Stays cool
- Only entry-level 4K performance
- Annoying 12-pin power connector
The best graphics card for gaming without ray tracing
Ray tracing has made quite a splash over the past couple of years, but there is a real question of whether it's really worth the added expense, especially since it can absolutely tank your frame rate. Fortunately, for those who don't care about ray tracing, the RX 6950 XT is one of the best cards you can buy. It offers RTX 3090 gaming performance (most of the time) for a lot less, meaning Cyber Monday deals on these cards are going to be fantastic.
- RTX 3090 gaming performance (sometimes)
- Much cheaper than best RTX cards
- 4K gaming on AMD Radeon
- Next-gen cards are nearly here
- Not great for creative workloads
- Ray tracing performance lags RTX
Graphics card specs to look for on Cyber Monday
There are a few things to consider when buying a graphics card this Cyber Monday. First and foremost, you need to consider your whole gaming setup. Buying a 4K graphics card when you only have a 1080p monitor is seriously overkill, and while you can get 400 fps in many titles at 1080p with an RTX 3090 Ti, if your monitor's refresh rate is only 144Hz, you're paying for a lot of frames that you're simply not going to see.
If you're looking for 1080p gaming, the Nvidia RTX 3060 or AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is as high as you'll really need to go.
If you're looking for 1440p gaming, the Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti to RTX 3070 Ti, or the RX 6800 or RX 6800 XT is as high as you should go.
If you're looking for 4K gaming, then the Nvidia RTX 3080 or RX 6900 and above is where you need to look.
If you're looking to do creative content work like 3D rendering or analytical work like machine learning, go for the RTX cards since the tensor cores on the RTX cards are ideal for this kind of work.
If you're looking for gaming with ray tracing, the Nvidia RTX cards outperform the Radeon RX cards in this type of gaming, so are better suited.
If ray tracing isn't an issue or you're on a tigher budget, the AMD Radeon RX lineup is generally cheaper and offers competitive gaming performance, so this is where we'd tell you to look for deals.
