Which are the Best Graphics Card for Gaming?
In case you don’t have enough time to go through the above 10, we have picked the best 5 of the list to save you even more time. We’ll list them all five with a brief review of each one.
#5 Radeon HD 7850 2GB
The Radeon HD 7850 2GB is an impressive graphic card for the money, these are very decent mid-range cards that will allow you to play your games at a decent frame-rate with okay image quality settings.
The 7850 price’s range from $100 to $200, check Amazon for the latest price. This card is one of the most affordable cards on the list and it’s a good choice if you don’t need the best image quality available but if you need superb quality gaming, then you should take a look at the other options.
#4 GeForce GTX 660
With this video card you would be able to play major 3D games with a decent quality but you won’t obviously get quite the speed with the GTX 660 you do with Nvidia’s more expensive graphics cards like the GTX 680, the GTX 670, etc. It’s a potent performer for its price though.
This video card is a good upgrade oportunity if you have been waiting a few years. But it’s not unequivocally the best you can do.
#3 GeForce GTX 770
Another thing we love about this card is that it’s very overclockable and we think it looks awesome too. It also comes with a 3-Year warranty.
The GTX 770 comes with a memory size of 2GB, a memory clock of 1753 MHz and a core clock of 1046 MHz+.
This is definitely a good video card if you’re a serious gamer but if you’re even more serious about your gaming quality you should consider the next video cards on this list.
#2 GeForce GTX Titan
It’s absolutely capable of running the most hardware demanding games available. The GTX Titan is intended to be the ultimate single-GPU card for this generation.
But not everything can be perfect, right? Well, the downside of this video card is it’s price $999 at this moment which is pretty high, but if you love having the best available option on the market, then it should be worth it for you.
#1 GeForce GTX 780
And our winner… the GTX 780 by NVIDIA, after testing all the graphics card we agreed that this one was the best bang for the buck, offering the best performance but a relatively low price (compared to the titan…). This is another high-end video card that can run every demanding game you can think of with absolutely wonderful quality and graphics.
The GTX 780 is packed with a memory capacity of 3GB and a memory bandwidth of 288.4 GB/s (same as the titan).
If you’re looking for the absolutely best graphic card then you can go wrong with the 780, I assure you that.
