When you’re building a gaming PC your video card should be your prime consideration. It’s the one component that has the most dramatic effect on how your games will run and look, and will determine just how high you can crank your graphic options. Here we take a look at the best top end video cards.
They’re generally expensive, large and power hungry, but the GPUs below are the best top end video cards currently available on the market, and they offer unrivalled gaming performance.
You want 4K 60 frames per second? You got it. Want to be future ready for 5K plus resolutions? These cards can do that to. want to play the latest triple-A titles at ultra settings and not be hampered by stuttering frame rates? These video cards have you covered.
Up until recently this category was dominated by Nvidia, and admittedly its GTX 1080Ti really is the video card to beat in terms of price AND performance, but now AMD has released its Vega series of GPUs.
This means that refreshingly there is now much more choice for consumers at the high end of the market, and that’s a great thing for our wallets.
