The best gaming graphics cards

The gaming industry does not stand still. Every day we can watch all new releases of cool gaming accessories (keyboards, mice, rugs and headsets). The same goes for gaming hardware. We continue our series of publications on the best accessories and components for building the optimal gaming computer in 2017. And so, let’s see what we already have. Firstly, we decided on the entire gaming peripherals: keyboard, mouse and headset. Secondly, they told you about the best gaming monitors. We also recently told you about the best processors for a gaming PC. We move on, and next in turn we have an overview of the best video cards for PC. How to choose a video card, we already wrote in our material. You can also read our material on adaptive image synchronization technologies.

Without a good video adapter, you simply have no chance to play a good game hit. But when buying a video card for a gaming PC, be prepared for the fact that you have to pay a very, very substantial amount of money, which can easily be exceeded for a thousand US dollars. If you are not afraid of such an amount, then we will proceed to our rating of the best gaming video cards in 2017.

Best buy: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
The best game model you can buy in 2017

Video Memory Capacity: 6 GB GDDR5
Power Connector: 1 x 6 Pin
Outputs: 3 x DisplayPort 1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0, DL-DVI
If you were a little embarrassed by our suggestion that the price of a good video card can be very high, then do not worry, because the price of our winner will pleasantly surprise you. And so, we consider the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 to be the best gaming video card in 2017. For a relatively low price, you get a pretty powerful graphics adapter that simply effortlessly copes with even the most difficult game at a resolution of 1080p. In addition, the model has an amazing margin of safety when it comes to overclocking. With a little shamanism with the processor voltage and increased frequencies, you can easily get the GTX 1060 to pull games at 2K or even 4K resolution. True, there is a small problem – the GTX 1060 does not support SLI technology, so you can only install one video card.

You can buy this model in Ukraine here or here.

Great overclocking potential
Best 4K gaming video card: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
Performance at the level of a top-end video card, but at a reasonable price

Video Memory Capacity: 11 GB GDDR5X
Power Connectors: 1 x 6 Pin; 1 x 8 pin
Outputs: 1 x DVI, 2 x HDMI, 2 x DisplayPort
The Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti is just a beast that craves to break out. Just think about it, as many as 11 (!) GB of fast RAM standard GDDR5X are installed in this graphics card.

This model alone will not be able to compete with the tandem of two GTX 1080 in SLI mode. But it is much cheaper than this tandem and, thanks to more nodes, CUDA supports significantly more game projects. If you have firmly decided that it is time for you to play at 4K resolution, then feel free to buy this model, it will never let you down.
