The price of graphics cards is now a dead meme but we're starting to see a slow decline in pricing thanks to improvements to global supply chains, as well as a sudden drop in the value of cryptocurrency. This has seen a reduction in the demand for new cards and Amazon Prime Day is set to drop prices even further.
We're rounding up only the best deals, checking the MSRP and what each card was previously listed for. If the deal is a good one, it'll be included below. We're separating everything into NVIDIA and AMD categories to make it easier to find the best graphics card for your PC build.
The difference between AMD Radeon 6000 and NVIDIA RTX 30 series cards isn't massive. AMD usually offers better value with its products and its Radeon GPUs are no exception, though NVIDIA cards are usually more desirable thanks to G-Sync, better ray-tracing support, and branding.
You'll find both UK (£) and U.S. ($) deals populating these lists!
Best NVIDIA RTX 30 series Prime Day deals
NVIDIA's RTX 30 series of graphics cards are fantastic for gaming. They are leaps ahead of the RTX 20 series with even the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti cards being more than capable of handing games at 1440p. Here are our favorite deals.
ASUS TUF Gaming RTX 3090 Ti |
$2,000 $1,700 (opens in new tab)
The NVIDIA RTX 3090 Ti sits at the tippy-top of NVIDIA's consumer GPU lineup, and it will inject a serious shot of performance into your gaming or design PC. Grab if for $300 off the regular price at Best Buy during its Black Friday in July event.
EVGA RTX 3080 XC3 Ultra |
$1,130 $799 (opens in new tab)
EVGA's RTX 3080 XC3 Ultra is one fine version of this high-end GPU, and you can get it right now at Newegg for $331 off the regular price. Buy this GPU and get a four-game Bethesda bundle worth another $120.
GIGABYTE RTX 3080 Gaming OC |
$1,000 $800 (opens in new tab)
The RTX 3080 is our pick for best graphics card for pretty much any situation, and this version from Gigabyte is down to just $800 at Best Buy. Grab it if you're looking to upgrade to 1440p or 4K.
GIGABYTE RTX 3080 GAMING OC |
£943 £780 (opens in new tab)
For the best 1440p experience and some dabbing in 4K, you'll want something like the RTX 3080. This GIGABYTE card comes with a factory-set overclock that should get yet more performance out of this already great NVIDIA GPU.
ZOTAC Gaming RTX 3060 Twin Edge OC |
$550 $380 (opens in new tab)
The NVIDIA RTX 3060 is a monster GPU available at a modest price, especially with Prime Day savings at Amazon. It will easily handle 1080p and 1440p gaming, plus you get all the NVIDIA benefits like DLSS and ray tracing.
Best AMD Radeon 6000 series Prime Day deals
AMD may not make as many headlines as NVIDIA, but the RX 6000 series of GPUs are brilliant and match what NVIDIA has to offer. You can even find some better value deals with AMD, though you may find the ray-tracing support a little lackluster in comparison.
GIGABYTE RX 6900 XT Gaming OC |
$1,050 $730 (opens in new tab)
As one of the most powerful GPUs on the market today, the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT generally has a high asking price. However, Newegg currently has it down to just $730 after a regular sale, a mail-in rebate, and promo code VGAEXCFT46. If you want extreme performance, this is the way to go.
XFX Speedster QICK308 RX 6650XT Ultra Gaming |
$400 $370 (opens in new tab)
The RX 6650XT from AMD is a weird mid-range GPU that can easily tackle 1440p gaming but happens to be a little faster than the existing RX 6600XT. This XFX aftermarket card is stunning, however, and is perfect for a sleek gaming rig.
PowerColor Fighter RX 6600 |
$370 $255 (opens in new tab)
Need an affordable AMD GPU that can handle quality 1080p gaming? The RX 6600 answers the bell, and it's even cheaper now thanks to Amazon's Prime Day savings. It's well rated thanks to cool running and solid reliability from PowerColor.
PowerColor RX 6400 |
$180 $150 (opens in new tab)
This PowerColor RX 6400 is a low-profile GPU. That means it's small enough that it shouldn't have any problem fitting inside any PC chassis. This allows one to add video output to a small form factor PC on a budget.
