    The best graphics card for the least amount of money that I can think of is the GTX 750 TI FTW edition. For only $130 it sure packs a punch! Post a reply saying what you think the best graphics card for the least amount of money is.

    I would say the 750 TI also, though if you look other places it can go as cheap as $90

    Another card that is good for its low price is the RX 460. Only $120 and it recently came out. But I don't use AMD because of poorly optimized drivers.

    You can get a 1050 ti at around 140$ the card out preforms the 750 ti FTW in multiple ways. The 1050 ti has a higher core and boost clock, higher memory clock, and double the vram of a 750 ti FTW. I personally cant see the point of getting a 750ti these days unless you really, really, really need to save that 20-40 dollars.

    RX 480.

    The prices are a little inflated atm, but for 239 you're getting 970 performance.

    The GTX 1050 and 950 are in the same price range, but the 1050 performs better. So why even get a 950? And for only $200 you can get a 1060, which almost performs as good as a 970

    Oh my god @Clorox a 1080? That's the most expensive! Ethan, if your price range for a GPU can rise to $250, a Geforce GTX 1060 6GB is probably worthwhile. It will last for a reasonable amount of years unless you're playing Gears of War 4 at an Ultra-High quality. A 1070 would also be great, but they can go for a rather higher price than what I think you're looking for.

    For the money lol, a 1080 is the best "bang for the buck" yet it is expensive you can get the most for your money!

    The "best bang for the buck" cards are the ones you get off ebay for $0.50
