✅ TOP 5: Best Graphics Card 2019


Looking for the best graphics card for gaming? In this video we’ll break down the top graphics
cards available whilst comparing them for price versus performance. Before we get started with our video detailing
the best graphics cards on the market, we have included links in the description for
each product mentioned, so make sure you check those out to see which one is in your budget
range. Starting off with the best entry level graphics
card we have the XFX Radeon RX 550. Kicking off this video, we have a highly affordable
and reliable GPU from a manufacturer with a good reputation – the XFX Radeon RX 550. And though it may not be the most glamorous
or the most powerful graphics card in our video, those who are on a very tight budget
might find this card very appealing. Overall, the RX 550 is the best entry-level
GPU available, hands down. It performs on par with the similarly-priced
Nvidia GT 1030, although the build quality and design of this particular model leave
something to be desired. It is a compact single-fan card, so it won’t
exactly shine when it comes to overclocking and it may get a bit loud under load. Plus, the design is quite bland and makes
the card feel a bit cheap, though this is nothing new in products that are supposed
to be affordable above all else. The only real issue with this card is that
it is obviously not a very future-proof solution. While the card itself is well-built and should
definitely be able to take years of use, everyone will agree that a dated Polaris card such
as this one, equipped with only 2 GB of VRAM, will not exactly fare well in the long run,
as the games become more and more demanding each year. Next up we have the Best Budget Graphics card
which goes to the ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX 560. The Asus RoG Strix RX 56 ranks quite low in
the overall GPU hierarchy, it is noticeably more powerful than either of the entry level
models. The card uses a dual-fan cooler which definitely
helps it hit higher clock speeds and generate less noise, all the while it sports a characteristic
angular Strix shroud, complete with AuraSync RGB lighting. Overall, the RX 560 is an excellent GPU, especially
at its low price tag. It is quite capable of pushing 60 FPS in 1080p,
as you can see from the above tests, though of course, the graphics settings will need
to be lowered in most newer games. Asus did a good job with this particular model,
as the card definitely feels like a high-quality product. This is thanks to the abovementioned dual-fan
cooling and the RGB lighting that comes in the form of the RoG logo on the shroud. All in all, the RX 560 is a great budget card
and there are no glaring issues with either the GPU itself or Asus’ take on it, though
there are better cards available if you are willing to spend a little more money. Nonetheless, if you’re pinching pennies,
we can wholeheartedly recommend RX 560 as a solid budget GPU for 1080p gaming. Up next we have the best mid-range graphics
card which goes to the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 590. This card will be ideal for those seeking
improved performance in 1080p or those who are looking to finally upgrade to 1440p, as
well as those who simply like to plan for the future. With AMD’s Polaris lineup about to be succeeded
by the upcoming Navi GPUs, it struck many people as odd that AMD would release a new
Polaris-based GPU late in 2018. And even though it may be based on a dated,
soon-to-be-obsolete architecture, the RX 590 still does a lot of things right. Even a few years back when they were a company
struggling to stay afloat, AMD managed to offer users great value for their money on
the GPU front, as AMD Radeon cards were consistently more powerful yet cheaper than their Nvidia
counterparts. Granted, Nvidia is getting more serious about
their mid-range solutions, but the RX 590 is still a good buy, especially if you can
get it at a discount. The Sapphire Nitro+ RX 590 features the same
type of design approach that we’ve previously seen with cheaper Nitro cards: highly efficient
cooling, sleek backplate, and a great-looking, sturdy shroud. We do, however, prefer a more minimal gray
as opposed to the bright blue with translucent fans, though this is a matter of taste. Ultimately, apart from the fact that it has
a bit of a hefty power draw (nothing new with AMD GPUs), we have no qualms with the GPU
itself. However, with the GTX 1660 Ti in the picture,
the value of the RX 590 and its dated architecture becomes a bit of a dubious matter. Next up we have another mid-range graphics
card which goes to the EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC Ultra Gaming. As we’ve mentioned previously, AMD used
to offer much better mid-range GPUs in the past. But while the GTX 1050 Ti and the 1060 did
not measure up against the RX 400 and 500 series all that well, the 1660 Ti is quite
a different story. This particular GTX 1660 Ti we’ll be looking
at here is the EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC Ultra Gaming, a performance-oriented model
that combines a large heatsink with dual-fan cooling and a completely new design similar
to what the company did with the more expensive RTX models. There’s no denying it, the 1660 Ti is one
appealing piece of tech. It presents great value if you’re thinking
about making the jump to 1440p or want to push higher framerates in more demanding games. It also stacks up well against the competition,
both performance-wise and price-wise. As for this specific model manufactured by
EVGA, it offers quality cooling, though the design leaves something to be desired. Namely, the shroud feels a tad cheap, there
is no backplate, and we’re not big fans of the fan design either. But in any case, whatever your thoughts on
the card’s aesthetics, the GTX 1660 Ti is the best graphics card for 1440p gaming at
the moment, and EVGA’s cooling does a great job at getting the most out of the GPU. Moving on, we enter the high-end, featuring
graphics cards that master 1440p gaming and are fully capable of taking on even 4K. This category is dominated by Nvidia cards,
as AMD has consistently been unable to produce any competitive GPUs beyond the mid-range,
though this might change in the near future with the new Navi GPUs on the horizon. In any case, here are the best high-end gaming
GPUs. Starting off we have the EVGA GeForce RTX
2070 XC Gaming. The first card in this category is an EVGA
card. It may look similar to the above 1660 Ti model,
but it is a significant step up, both in regards to performance and the design of the card
itself. Overall, the RTX 2070 is a very attractive
GPU. As you can see from the benchmark above, it
is wholly capable of hitting high framerates even in 4K, though the performance will, understandably,
vary from game to game. In any case, we feel that the RTX 2070, much
like the 1660 Ti, is a very cost-effective solution for those who want to make a big
resolution/performance leap without having to spend a small fortune on a GPU alone. As for EVGA’s take on the RTX 2070, we are
dealing with a design that’s very similar to that of the 1660 Ti described above. However, this time around, we have a translucent
shroud and high-quality RGB lighting that complements it very well, which is basically
a must in 2019 for a card of this caliber. Next we have the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming
X Trio. If you’re thinking about something more
serious, then you might want to take a look at the MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio. This is one of the most powerful Turing GPUs
available, and MSI sure did it justice with this particular model, as it combines excellent
cooling with downright beautiful exterior design. The RTX 2080 is the go-to GPU for anyone who
is ready to fully take on 4K in 2019. It does occupy a bit of an awkward spot when
it comes to the performance and pricing, since it is not that big of an upgrade from the
substantially cheaper RTX 2070, all the while it can’t quite hold a candle to the (again)
substantially more expensive RTX 2080 Ti. Even so, it will still be a very attractive
card for many people, especially considering MSI’s great triple-fan cooling, the sleek
shroud, and the stunning RGB lighting. In the end, there are no real issues with
this model or the RTX 2080 in general apart from the aforementioned dubious value that
it presents. Indeed, we’d be more inclined to recommend
the RTX 2070 over the 2080 as it offers much better value for your money. And for our last pick we have the EVGA GeForce
RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Gaming. Well, what can we say? The 2080 Ti definitely pushes the envelope,
both on the performance and the pricing front. It is one of the most powerful consumer GPUs
available, second only to the Titan RTX. Of course, it also generated some controversy
due to its quadruple-digit MSRP. So, is the RTX 2080 Ti worth it? Well, it is arguably the first graphics card
fully capable of pushing a consistent 60 FPS in 4K, including even in the more demanding
AAA titles, but considering that you can get a good gaming PC for the price of this graphics
card alone, it can hardly be called worth the money unless you’re a hardcore enthusiast
with cash to burn. Finally, as for the FTW3 Ultra Gaming specifically,
it once again has a lot in common with the cheaper RTX 2070, boasting the same fan design
along with a translucent shroud that looks great when combined with RGB. The key difference, of course, is that this
model has a huge heatsink and three fans, making the card bulkier and the cooling more
efficient. So that sums up our top graphics cards of
2019. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video

  1. Wrong wrong wrong. The Asus Strix GTX 1660ti OC is the best 1660ti out of all other 1660ti’s .Three fan cooling and bigger Heatsinks and better and 9 to 10% lower than the RTX 2060.
