Two graphics cards that we liked are on sale today with a little something for most players. We have top and bottom prizes, an AMD card, an Nvidia card, and both come with free game deals.
First, the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Windforce at $ 480 on NeweggDelete the link that does not have a product with the payment code EMCTUTY22. This order code may require you to sign up for the Newegg mailing list. At $ 480, that's $ 20 less than the MSRP on the card, but the card sold for about $ 570 on Amazon. In addition to the map, you also get Battlefield V free.
The Gigabyte RTX 2070 Windforce is an excellent card for the 1440p game with the Ultra graphics settings, as well as for the entry-level 4K game. This is exaggerated for 1080p gamers, unless you use an extremely high refresh rate, but if you have the hope to update it, why not grab it now? We also appreciated this unit's three-fan cooler and found it more efficient than the Nvidia Founders edition cooling solution on this card, which costs $ 100 more.

Our second choice is the 8GB Sapphire Radeon Nitro + RX 580 for $ 220 on Amazon. It was quite common to see rival Radeon RX 580 GPUs hit $ 180 during the holidays, but this is the historical minimum for this card on Amazon.
We've always liked Sapphire Nitro + cards because they work well and can be overclocked at good speeds. This Nitro + RX 580, for example, can mount it up to 1,411 MHz.
With an RX 580, you can expect uncompromising 1080p games or very good 1440p performance with high graphics settings, but we recommend that you look up the AMD product line higher if you're in 4K. This card also allows you to choose from two out of three games through the AMD rewards program, including: Resident Evil 2 (January 25) Devil can cry 5 (March 8), and Division 2 (March 15)
