Recently, the Geforce GTX 1650 took over the popularity crown on the Steam Hardware Survey charts. However, the video card is slower than the six-year-old GTX 1060 it replaced. Thus, gamers can instead opt for the Super variant of this GPU.

The card trades blows with the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT and beats its AMD equivalent in multiple scenarios. However, it loses in terms of its proposition to the latter.

Buy the GTX 1650 Super from Amazon (from the US and internationally).


4) Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti ($409.99)

The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is the best Nvidia graphics card for gaming at 1080p without compromises. It can also handle multiple games at 1440p with ease.

The graphics card is selling slightly over its MSRP these days, thus many gamers are considering the RX 6600 XT as a solid option over it. However, the AMD GPU packs comparatively weaker ray tracing and rasterization performance.

The RTX 4070 Ti is a rehashed RTX 4080 12 GB. The card was introduced at CES 2023 and is available for purchase starting from $799. While the 4070 Ti is not a budget GPU, it trades blows with the 3090 Ti, the flagship from the Ampere lineup.

In addition, users get access to DLSS 3, which combines AI frame generation and upscaling technologies to achieve framerate gains like never before. This makes the card equally potent for 1440p and 4K gaming at sky-high framerates.

For gamers who do not want to pour thousands into their rig, the 4070 Ti is a solid Nvidia graphics card.

The GeForce RTX 4080 was launched back in 2020 as a slightly cut-down version of the costlier RTX 4090. For many users, the former is a sensible Nvidia graphics card for a high-end rig.

The GPU packs unmatched rasterization and ray-tracing performance, and supports the latest temporal-upscaling and frame-generation technologies like the 4070 Ti listed above. It also can run almost any video game at 4K without any frame drops or stutters.

The RTX 4090 is the pinnacle of consumers' graphical-computing solutions. It outperforms the last-gen equivalent by a solid margin, as we found in our review of the GPU.

While the card comes at a hefty price, it delivers better performance per watt as compared to the 3090 Ti.
