There are plenty of aftermarket options for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 GPU, but choosing the best one for your PC rig can be challenging. This is why we rounded up the best aftermarket cards around so you can shortlist a few and pick the one that best suits your PC. The RTX 3090 is a killer GPU for 4K and even 8K gaming.

The MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio is a brilliant GPU for your new gaming PC build. It has insane amounts of power compared to even the RTX 20 series from NVIDIA and is probably more than you'll require, but it would be nice to own one. The Gaming X Trio from MSI comes equipped with plenty of RAM, all the CUDA cores you need, and high boost clock speeds.

But fear not if you can't quite stretch for one of the more premium RTX 3090 cards. There are more value-orientated options like the PNY GeForce RTX 3080 XLR8 Gaming Epic-X, and this card won't let you down at all. It still has the same number of CUDA cores and similar clock speeds than more expensive choices, but you're saving a little in the process.
