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:

PNY GeForce GTX 1660 Super $300 $209.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

The 1660 Super is a couple generations behind, but it's still a great card and has plenty of juice to keep you gaming at a high level. The price is also the lowest it has been on Amazon considering it was going for as much as $350 in June.

(opens in new tab)

EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 SC Ultra $267 $209.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

There was a time in its life when this card actually hit $220 more than once, but that was a while ago. It spent all of 2021 above $260, and this is its first major discount on Amazon in more than a year. 

(opens in new tab)

MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 $450 $369.48 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 an all-new low that we have not seen before. 

(opens in new tab)

MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3070 8GB $640 $529.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

Take another $10 off with code VGAEXCMSET274. Will save an extra $20 after a mail-in rebate. This card is still going for as much as $760 at some retailers and even $660 at Amazon. The price has actually gone as low as $530 before, but this is still a pretty nice deal.

(opens in new tab)

MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3080 $1,210 $709.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

Get the price down using code VGAEXCMSJZ293 with a $30 mail-in rebate form. This is $10 better than the next best price we've seen this year. This deal also comes with four free games, which in this case includes Ghostwire Tokyo, Doom Eternal, and the two parts of The Ancient Gods, a Doom Eternal DLC.

EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 hybrid GPU $1,400 $832.98 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

A unique hybrid GPU that includes the AIO built right in. The graphics card sells for way above this price pretty much anywhere else, and it was selling for around $1,400 from third parties before this Amazon sale. Just $30 above the best price we've seen this year.

(opens in new tab)

MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti $1,410 $834.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

You will need to fill out and send in the $30 off mail-in rebate to get the full benefit of this deal, but even if you don't this is still a great price on a powerful card. We did see it drop to $850, but this is still a better price than it has been selling for.

(opens in new tab)

Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 Ti $1,150 $869.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

It is worth noting that this GPU does not have the best cooling for it, so you might want to pick up some cheap 2mm thermal pads if you can do that yourself. This is a crazy low price for an enthusiast card though.

(opens in new tab)

MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ti $1,450 $1,029.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

You'll need the mail-in rebate form to save another $50, but this is an amazing price for a GPU that once peaked as high as $2,200. With a new generation of GPUs on the horizon, we might even see this card drop a bit more soon.

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 $134.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

You'll need to do the $15 mail-in rebate to get the most savings here. This card is great for two people: gamers on a shoestring budget or someone building a compact PC.

Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 6600 $300 $229.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

Use the code VGAEXCAA267 to save an extra $10 off the price, bringing this card down to an extremely affordable price for anyone looking for an upgrade. You'll also get the Raise the Game bundle that includes Sniper Elite 5, Forspoken, and Saints Row to help put your new card to the test.

(opens in new tab)

MSI Mech Radeon RX 6600 $350 $269.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

You will need to use the code FBCSEP22 for 3% off and the mail-in rebate form to get an extra $20 off, but even at $270 it is a nice discount from what this card was going for in June. You'll also get a digital code for three free games, which is just icing on the cake.

XFX Speedster QICK308 Radeon RX 6650XT $400 $319.99 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.

Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 $500 $336.40 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

This card was selling for as much as $500 in January and has been on a steady decline ever since. Today's price is an all-new low we haven't seen before. 

(opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster SWFT210 Radeon RX 6650 XT $380 $339.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Includes a Core Clock of 2055 MHz and boost clock of 2635 MHz. Connectivity includes an HDMI 2.1 port and three DisplayPort 1.4. Uses the PCI Express 4.0 standard. Not quite as low as recent deals where it dropped to $330 but still a decent price.

PowerColor Hellhound Radeon RX 6650 XT $440 $389.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

You don't see a lot of pure Spectral White graphics cards like this. It's a beautiful aesthetic if you're making a white PC. This is a relatively new card that just released in May, too, so it's great to see the price going down and not up.

(opens in new tab)

PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 6650 XT $440 $399.99 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. 

(opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster QICK319 Radeon RX 6700 XT $575 $439.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Last year, this GPU peaked as high as $1,020 on Amazon. That's an insane price. The GPU market was nuts. Now it is down to the lowest we have ever seen. 

(opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster QICK319 Radeon RX 6750XT $530 $469.99 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. 

(opens in new tab)

XFX Speedster SWFT 319 Radeon RX 6800 $700 $529.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

This is a great low price for a powerful card, and it's just one of several cards on sale at the XFX store. You might even be able to find some discount codes to add onto the savings, although the codes seems to change often. 

(opens in new tab)

Yeston Radeon RX 6700 XT $1,200 $549 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

An interesting GPU that would be good in a white aesthetic build. This deal includes a direct discount and a $35 gift card (formerly $160) you can use on a future purchase from Newegg. 

(opens in new tab)

MSI AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT $740 $579.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

Get a direct discount, use code FBCSEP22 to save an extra 3%, and take an extra $20 off using the mail-in rebate to really secure this card at an affordable price. Hard to tell how long this price will last considering any one of these discounts could disappear at any time.

(opens in new tab)

MSI Gaming Radeon RX 6800 $700 $588.38 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

This graphics card was selling for as much as $900 over the last year. Go back to February and it was going for more than $1,200. That's some crazy pricing considering today it's down to this great price. 

(opens in new tab)

ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT $800 $699.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)

This is a huge discount on this card, especially when you use code FBCSEP22 to save another 3%. 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 three free games.
