Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018: Best graphics card deals

Whaddup hack3rs, Black Friday is officially done and Cyber Monday has begun, which can only mean one thing and that is to give your PC a new graphics er… gun? All right, I’ll stop with the rhymes now (see what this deals madness has done to me?), but I wasn’t kidding about the new graphics card part. Indeed, I, your ever faithful deals herald, aka THE DEALER, have now shed my Black Friday beret and donned my Cyber Monday black hat, bringing you the best Cyber Monday graphics card deals on the planet.

Sure, a lot of these deals are still the same as they were on Friday, but there are still a handful new entries that are now cheaper than ever. If you missed out on all the Black Friday graphics card fun at the end of last week, this is your last chance to nab a nice bargain if you’ve been thinking your PC’s due an upgrade. Apart from a couple of notable absences (*cough*GTX 1080s*cough*), most of today’s best graphics cards can still be picked up with some hefty savings attached to them, so here are all the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday graphics card deals still up for grabs.

As always, you’ll find all our best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals over in our big Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018 hub, but I’ll be updating this list throughout the day as well to keep all the graphics card discounts in one place.

Graphics card buying advice

We all want to play games on the best graphics settings, but the best way to pick one graphics card from the next is to think about what kind of resolution you want. Do you want to play games at 60fps at 1920×1080? Or do you want something a bit more powerful to bump it up to 2560×1440? Heck, you might want to go the whole hog and run all your games at 4K on Ultra – in which case, you’ll need the graphics card to match.

Best for 1080p gaming: For a smooth gaming experience at 1920×1080, my top recommendation is still the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti, or the AMD Radeon RX 570 if you can find it cheaper (plus you get some nice free games with it right now, too). It may not be able to run the latest games on the highest settings (you’ll need a GTX 1060 or an RX 580 for that), but most games should still give you a decent 60fps on Medium if you’re looking to keep costs down. In terms of value for money, there’s simply nothing better.

Best for 1440p gaming: As we move up the resolution chain, things start to get a bit messy. For perfect 60fps 1440p gaming on the best settings, you’ll want either an Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1070 or the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070Ti – whichever you can find for the least money. At the moment, GTX 1070Ti prices are more or less identical to regular GTX 1070 cards, so you may as well get the superior Ti if your budget can stretch that far. Otherwise, it’s a pretty close-run race between the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 and the AMD Radeon RX 580. Both cost around half as much as the GTX 1070 / GTX 1070Ti and can still deliver a smooth 60fps on Medium to High settings.

Best for 4K gaming: As for the big guns, this is really a choice between Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080 and AMD’s RX Vega 64, as both can currently be found for around the same sort of price. If you want the absolute bestest best settings that 4K gaming has to offer, though, then prepare to fork out for Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080Ti.
