The best Cyber Monday graphics card deals
Now a 7% reduction doesn’t look like much but considering a couple of months ago you’d have to pay £400 just to get a secondhand RX 580, which had been mined to within an inch of its life, this is definitely worth a look.
At this price we’realmostgetting back to sane level of graphics card pricing. And, more importantly, at a level where it’s actually cheaper than the competing Nvidia GTX 1060 with its smaller 6GB framebuffer.
Finally we’re getting the GTX 1060 back towards the price it really should be! If you’re more of a green team fan than a red team Radeon person – or want a gaming graphics card to stick in your tiny PC build – then Zotac’s GTX 1060 6GB Mini is a great shout.
Finding the GTX 1080 for under £500 has been quite a challenge recently, and this is the only version we’ve found so far. It’s a great GPU, even if the blower cooler is more reference edition than superstar chiller.
Yes, it’s only the basic blower edition, and not some fancy overclocked card with a third party cooler attached, but c’mon, it’s still a GTX 1080 Ti. And for less than most third-party AMD Vega 64s too.
After a rebate, this RX 560 becomes an impressive deal for a budget gaming upgrade. The bus-powered RX 560 will be a quality gaming upgrade for a low-end machine and will net you decent 1080p performance at medium settings.
The prices of AMD cards is starting to come back to sensible levels now that stock is a little more prevalent after the miners grabbed all the Polaris-based cards earlier in the year. This RX 570 is the cheapest version around at the moment.
At a touch under $200, this 4GB version of the RX 580 is able to make a case for itself – when it comes to this bracket of card you’re not going to find a more powerful gaming card for less than two hundred smackers.
For just $50 more than the Asus RX 570, however, you can pick up this full-fat RX 580 with twice the video memory. At this price, undercutting most Nvidia GTX 1060s, that makes it our favourite current GPU on a price/performance basis.
There are, however, still some GTX 1060s around for the same price as that RX 580. This miniature Zotac card still has the full 6GB of VRAM, but comes in a pint-sized form factor for mini builds. Ain’t it cute?
The 3GB graphics memory on the cut-down GTX 1060 might give you some troubles with 1080p gaming at the very highest settings, but this card will still beat the 4GB RX 570 and for considerably less cash.
