Planning on upgrading your graphics card this year? Here are the best deals
There is no getting around it with PCs, graphics cards are usually the most expensive component for any setup. They also have the biggest impact on your in-game performance, so whether you’re building a new PC from scratch or looking to upgrade an existing setup, there’s a good reason to invest.
Black Friday is one of the best opportunities to pick up a new graphics card at a discounted price, and with this year’s sales event fast approaching, we’ve rounded up the best Black Friday deals on graphics cards that are currently available.
If you want an in-depth look at how the different graphics cards compare, Digital Foundry ranked each available graphics card from best to worst, and also created a list for the finest GPUs here.
While the GPU market is slowly recovering from the impact of COVID, increased component costs, tariffs and the ongoing silicon shortage, supply issues are still hampering many graphics card providers. Both Nvidia and AMD’s latest offerings had wide-ranging stock issues in 2020 and good graphics card deals are looking a bit sparse this year.
That said, we’ve managed to round up the best of what we can find below, and we’ll be updating this page closer to this year’s event when new deals get announced.
