Current Best Video Card Deals (May 2019 Edition)

Monthly Hand-Picked Deals on AMD RX and NVidia RTX/GTX Graphics Cards From Around the Web to Save Money on Your New Gaming PC Build


Last Updated: May 21, 2019

Looking to save money on your PC build by finding a cheaper graphics card? Your GPU is the most important - and likely most expensive - component of your new gaming system, so finding a good video card deal or sale can really help lower overall cost of your new machine. We monitor the hardware market continuously - and especially such important components as gaming GPUs - so why not compile the best video card deals that we find during our day to day research to help you potentially save a bit of money on a good card for your next build to take your gaming performance to the next level. We'll be tracking both cheap graphics card deals on budget GPUs from AMD as well as discounts on high-end RTX or GTX cards from NVidia. We'll also be checking multiple online stores (USA) during our monthly updates to these deals.

As of this latest update in mid May 2019, there's currently a few small yet definitely helpful discounts on RTX 2070, 2060 and even 2080/Ti cards, as well as a nice selection of cheap RX 570 and 580 video cards on sale which has been the theme throughout the whole of 2019 so far (and looks to continue until the lead up to AMD's new Navi cards later this year). These two cards are still some the most bang for buck GPUs on the market right now for budget/mid-range 1080p gaming PC builds, and are our top recommendation right now for a $500 or $600 build. If you're on the lookout for a deal on previous gen cards (GTX 1070/Ti, 1080/Ti etc) then it's gonna be tough going as they're hard to find in stock anywhere. For those cards you're better off buying second hand.

Recommended For: ~ $1500 Builds

Hard to find RTX 2070's below their normal price, however this good model from ever-reliable EVGA is going for a little under right now and worth considering for a great 1440p and entry-level 4K build.

(~ $1100 at Amazon)

Connections: HDMI, DP, USB Type-C
Full Specs: Here
Recommended For: ~ $2500 Builds

Finding an RTX 2080 Ti under its MSRP is near impossible as right now it has no competition as the king of gaming GPUs, meaning it's going to cost you a spare limb to buy and isn't the best pure value for money. But if you're on a high-end budget, it or its smaller brother RTX 2080 are must-have cards for the best possible 4K experience right now in 2019. These Zotac models are the cheapest 2080 Ti's we could find right now, so whilst not technically "on sale" as they're a little over MSRP, they are cheaper than other models with most of them going for well over MSRP.

GPU DEALS FAQ



  • The MSRPs (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) above are the recommended starting prices for the base models, so overclocked or better-cooled/feature-rich cards will sell for higher.
  • We may include a refurbished graphics card if we think it's a good deal and would consider buying it ourselves. Learn more with our guide to buying refurbished PC parts but to summarize make sure there's at least some sort of warranty and avoid buying refurbished from lesser-known brands and/or stores.
  • Sometimes a GPU may still be considered a "deal" if it's at or a little over MSRP (even if it's a base model), depending on the current state of pricing and availability of that type of card across the market. For example, higher-end RTX cards are universally slightly overpriced right now (especially the 2080 Ti) with one reason being lack of direct competition from AMD in the high-end market, so finding a new RTX card around its MSRP could be considered a "deal" at this time. But this isn't limited to the new cards as classic cards like the GTX 1050 Ti are also slightly over MSRP right now too, so finding one around MSRP is a win there too.
  • If you find a deal you like and want to use that card in one of our recommended gaming desktop builds or your own custom parts-list, make sure to double check compatibility with your PC case and other parts, especially if it's a long GPU with triple fans as smaller cases may not support its length. Cases should clearly list their maximum supported GPU length on their product page or on the manufacturer's site. Power consumption may also be something to consider, although if you're using our recommended builds as a base for your build then all the power supply selections in those builds have plenty of leeway to accomodate a more power-hungry video card.
  • Whilst the main focus here is finding the absolute cheapest, best video card deals that we can find right now - if we see a deal on a GPU model we would not recommend for a PC build, we won't include it here. We'll only include GPU deals we would actually consider buying ourselves. For example, some GPU models have complications, higher than average failure issues, cooling issues, etc.
  • While we tweak our full gaming PC builds for multiple countries (USA, Canada, UK and Australia), on this page we're only tracking the best video card deals in the USA as this alone takes a fair bit of time with every update (we check as many different stores as we can). We work hard at BGC, but we're not superhuman..at least until we find some NZT-48.
