Graphics cards are like star dust at the moment. Trying to find one is almost an impossibility, thanks to the global pandemic, a shortage in the electronics industry, and the rise of cryptocurrency mining at home (and at large scale). That hasn't stopped some manufacturers and retailers from trying to provide consumers a good deal, which is precisely what this NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 listing at Best Buy is.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 has an MSRP of $500, but aftermarket cards are usually a little more thanks to custom shrouds, cooling, and other features. In this current climate, it's not rare to see not only classified listings from other people, but even retailers offer the RTX 3070 for prices of $1,000 or more. We'd never recommend buying this GPU at that price.
This card is capable of supplying video output to a monitor of up to 8K, supports DLSS and ray tracing, has 8GB of GDDR6 RAM, and supports PCIe 4.0 for the latest Intel and AMD motherboards. It can easily handle the latest games at 1440p on near max visual settings, as well as 4K with decent results.
For $680, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING (not pictured above) is an enticing purchase for a gaming rig upgrade if you're looking to move up to 4K at some point in the future. We're not too sure how long this listing will last, so it's wise to act quickly if you really need a new GPU right now.
