When you are looking for a new graphics card, the task can be daunting. There are dozens of cards and every major brand has to get their hands on at least one, so you have a whole lot of noise you need deafen just to find the one that works for you. Not to mention that the prices are in constant fluctuation. A year or two ago (maybe even just a few months) and the idea of a graphics card deal was a fantasy as most cards were going for way above MSRP and often only being sold by scalpers on eBay if they were in stock at all. That's not quite the case anymore, although prices and demand still change regularly and things can escalate quickly.

Our goal is to provide you with a list of the best graphics card deals from all around the internet. We're not interested in cards that are "on sale" just because they aren't bloated at hundreds above retail anymore. We're looking for genuine deals on GPUs, many of which are selling as close to their MSRP as they have in years or maybe even selling below MSRP. Sometimes graphics cards come packaged in bundles that include things like other PC parts or even codes for video games, and while those are hard to track we will list them as well if we find them. Always check what manufacturers are bundling with the card you're interested in because you could save in ways you didn't know about.

Whether you're building a new PC or upgrading an older one, here are the best ways to save on a new graphics card.

Should you buy a graphics card right now?

I.e. Is it worth it? The truth is, if you're looking for a graphics card then it is probably a  need for you. You're here because you're in the market for a new computer or looking to upgrade an aging beast. Either way, the original question is really moot because whether or not you should... you ARE.

Now is as good a time as any, anyway, because prices have been falling for most of 2022. It's hard to tell whether they're going to keep falling or if demand will rise again, but for now we're seeing more and more discounts every day. That's a great thing, and it's a pattern that currently only benefits you, the buyer. Finding cards below MSRP is still not very common, but if the trend continues the way it is then drops that good might be right around the corner.

Best Nvidia GPU deals:

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3050 $380 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3050 $380 $309.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

You can find this deal at a couple of retailers including Best Buy (opens in new tab), although it has sold out other places like Amazon. This GPU uses 2nd-gen RTX architecture and WINDFORCE cooling technology to keep it as efficient as possible.

PNY GeForce RTX 3060 12GB $650 (opens in new tab)

PNY GeForce RTX 3060 12GB $650 $369.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)

A great option for a budget build or a compact PC thanks to the single fan design, the low cost, and the great performance per dollar spent.

MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 $450 (opens in new tab)

MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 $450 $393.48 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

This card was only introduced on Amazon earlier this year, but it has sold for around $450 or more since its release. Today's price is within $20 of its all-time low.

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 12GB $480 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 12GB $480 $399.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)

The RTX 3060 is a budget GPU that has been in pretty high demand recently thanks to its great balance of price and performance. Being able to save even more just adds to that value. 

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti $495 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti $495 $459.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

This GPU was selling for as much as $500 in August, and today it has hit its lowest price ever. While it has hit this price once or twice before, it usually has not lasted long. Grab it while you can before the deal disappears.

MSI GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12GB $840 (opens in new tab)

MSI GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12GB $840 $829.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)

This comes from Nvidia's latest 40xx series, so just finding it in stock at all could be considered a boon. At least here you can save $10 off the price, too, which is nice considering it has jumped up to $870 or more at some retailers.

EVGA B Stock graphics cards (opens in new tab)

EVGA B Stock graphics cards (opens in new tab)

EVGA has an entire section of its online store dedicated to what it calls "B Stock," or more commonly "refurbished" units. You can find graphics cards here that are used or suffer from some basic cosmetic damage. They come in at a reduced price, and EVGA often features B Stock Sales that drop the price even more.

Best AMD GPU deals:

MSI Radeon RX 6400 GPU $175 (opens in new tab)

MSI Radeon RX 6400 GPU $175 $139.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

While normally great at even $150, you can get another $10 off with code VGAEXCMSJZ348 while it works. This card is great for two people: gamers on a shoestring budget or someone building a compact PC. You get two games for free with your purchase, which is some great value.

MSI Mech Radeon RX 6650 XT 8GB $350 (opens in new tab)

MSI Mech Radeon RX 6650 XT 8GB $350 $259.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

Discounted to $294.99, you can take another $15 off with the code HBDCN24288. Then use the mail-in rebate card to save another $20 over time. That's a huge discount on this very capable card. 

XFX Speedster QICK308 Radeon RX 6650XT $400 (opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster QICK308 Radeon RX 6650XT $400 $309.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Looks like XFX Speedster is offering deals on cards regardless of retailer. This price matches the lowest we've seen on the QICK308 model. The 6650 XT is sort of a refreshed 6600 XT that's slightly faster, and it is a new release this year. Includes two free games.

Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 6700 10GB $350 (opens in new tab)

Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 6700 10GB $350 $314.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

Use the code SSCN2526 to take $35 off the price. This is a temporary sale from Newegg that may not last long. This deal also includes AMD's Raise the Game bundle, so you will get a couple of brand new video games to put your GPU through its paces.

XFX Speedster SWFT309 Radeon RX 6700 $400 (opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster SWFT309 Radeon RX 6700 $400 $329.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

Oddly enough this isn't really a particular sale on this GPU but rather just a great price compared to others in its class. If you've been looking at this type or just want something on the affordable side, this is a great way to go.

MSI Mech Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB $370 (opens in new tab)

MSI Mech Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB $370 $349.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

Use code VGAEXCMSJZ355 to take off another $10 on the already discounted price. You'll get a couple of free gifts, too, including the AMD Radeon Raise the Game bundle that includes two free video games to put your GPU to the test.

PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 6650 XT $440 (opens in new tab)

PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 6650 XT $440 $349.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

This AMD graphics card has only been available on Amazon since May, but it has sold at or near its MSRP of $450 since then. The drop here is its best price ever. 

XFX Speedster SWFT309 Radeon RX 6700 XT $450 (opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster SWFT309 Radeon RX 6700 XT $450 $399.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)

Another great variation of the RX 6700 XT that's down to a nice, low price. XFX Speedster offers regular discounts, but this is one of the better prices we've seen for this GPU. 

XFX Speedster QICK319 Radeon RX 6750XT $530 (opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster QICK319 Radeon RX 6750XT $530 $429.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

AMD's RX 6750 XT card was only introduced in May, but it was introduced at just the right time as GPU prices keep dropping so it's one where the price never got a chance to get overly bloated. This is a great deal, although it has been $30 cheaper recently. 

XFX Radeon RX 6750 XT $550 (opens in new tab)

XFX Radeon RX 6750 XT $550 $449.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Once as low as $470, this price is still much better than it's going for at other retailers. Chances are the price will expire, and it's at least $20 more at other retailers if not hundreds more. 

Yeston Radeon RX 6700 XT $1,200 (opens in new tab)

Yeston Radeon RX 6700 XT $1,200 $489 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

An interesting GPU that would be good in a white aesthetic build. The price is unusual because recently it seems this GPU is either on sale or just completely unavailable. We haven't seen it go this low, though, so the price is solid.

MSI AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT $740 (opens in new tab)
Temporary Backorde...

MSI AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT $740 $567.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

This deal includes two free video games to put your new graphics card to the test. While still available at a discount from its regular price and what it is going for at other retailers, this GPU has lost some of its deal luster recently. Grab it before it jumps back up even more. 

ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT $800 (opens in new tab)
Temporary Backorde...

ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT $800 $649.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

This HUGE deal on this amazing card is back, but it is backordered. You can still get it at this price and have it delivered as soon as Newegg gets more in stock. An RX 6900 for this low is amazing value. This is a very powerful card near the top of what AMD has to offer, and this deal is extremely affordable compared to where it has been in the past. You also get two free games.

XFX Speedster MERC319 Radeon RX 6950 XT 16GB $890 (opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster MERC319 Radeon RX 6950 XT 16GB $890 $729.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

You'll also get two free video games through the AMD Radeon Raise the Game bundle. Tons of value with this GPU including a fantastic direct price drop that's one of the best we've seen. 

Other GPU deals:

Intel Arc A770 16GB 4 free software titles (opens in new tab)

Intel Arc A770 16GB 4 free software titles (opens in new tab)

The Arc A770 is part of a new lineup from Intel that we've written plenty about. In this case, the deal doesn't have a direct discount but all the free stuff you get adds up to hundreds in value. You'll get Call of Duty Modern Warfare II and be able to pick three software titles from a list of five.
