Default GPU Price chart-Updated Weekly!

These prices are the lowest observed prices on www.newegg.com as of October 10, 2008.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FAQ:

Q: What is the point of this thread?
A: To make it easier for you to find the right video card for yourself, in the price range that you desire.

Q: How do I find the right card?
A: Pick a price. Then, pick a vendor (ATI, Nvidia, or if you don't care, pick Overall). Go from top to bottom until you find a card in your price range. Cards are listed from best (top) to worst (bottom).

Q: Why is "Card X" listed under ATI/NV, but not under Overall?
A: In order for a card to be listed in the Overall section, it has to be better than the card priced beneath it. If it's inferior, but still priced higher, then it is removed from consideration. A good example of this today is the GeForce 9800GTX+ and the Radeon HD4850. Both cards offer equivalent performance, but the HD4850 does so at a noticeably cheaper price.

Q: What if I want SLI/Crossfire?
A: Pick your desired pricepoint, and divide it by 2 (Ie, if your pricepoint is $500 ,your new price is $250). Find the best card in that halved price range, then buy two of them

Q: Why aren't X2 cards currently listed?
A: As of right now, X2 cards appeal more to the SLI/Crossfire crowd. They offer little to nothing over buying two separate cards, and often cost more than buying the two cards separate. In addition to that, they offer less performance scaling for the price, and would generally mess up this chart due to those factors. As it currently stands, if you're interested in an X2 card, you can generally follow the SLI/CF guidance from the last question.

Q: I feel that card "X" is better than card "Y" but you have them listed backwards. Why is this?
A: I try to be impartial, and go off of many sources to determine where cards should be placed in relation to each other. I also take into account many variables. For instance, the 9600GSO is slower than the HD3870 in 1680x1050/1600x1200 or higher, but is faster at 1440x990/1280x1024 or lower. For someone trying to get a card in this price range, they're usually going to have a cheaper monitor as well, since it makes no sense to mix a budget card with a 19x12 monitor. If for any reason you feel a lower rate card is better for your individual needs, then I would recommend going off of your knowledge of the situation rather than my general purpose guide.

Nvidia: - Currently marketing the GTX200 and 9 series GPUs. NV's GPUs are known for their consistent compatibility, performance, and hardware PhysX acceleration.

GeForce GTX280 - $419.99 ($379.99 AR)
GeForce GTX260 - $239.99 ($199.99 AR)
GeForce 9800GTX+ - $189.99 ($159.99 AR)
GeForce 9800GT - $124.99 ($99.99 AR)
GeForce 9600GT - $94.99 ($69.99 AR)
GeForce 9600GSO - $69.99 ($49.99 AR)
GeForce 9500GT - $64.99 ($43.99 AR)
GeForce 9400GT - $50.99 ($29.99 AR)


ATI: - Currently marketing the HD4000 series. ATI's cards offer better anti-aliasing performance scaling, and full DX10.1 support.

Radeon HD4870 - $244.99 ($219.99 AR)
Radeon HD4850 - $159.99 ($139.99 AR)
Radeon HD4670 - $79.99 ($69.99 AR)
Radeon HD4650 - $69.99
Radeon HD4550 - $54.99


Overall: - I'm leaving this blank for this update. I've been gone awhile, and I need to research the new budget cards from both companies before I can put them in some kind of order.

Moved this over from Rage3D. I request that you keep discussion related to prices and price related questions, and not devolve into some fanboy drivel about why card X should be better than card Y due to brand name. Currently a few days old, but I'll update the prices tomorrow.

The $100 market really should show the 8800 GT, which is now selling in the ~$120 to $130 price point.

Also, it would be interesting to list SLI/Crossfire-based systems in the $200/$300/$400/$500 price points. Not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison, but interesting nevertheless.

Updated. Changed some of the links to priced items. The "average" MSRP of the HD4870/4850 dropped, while the rebate values on the HD4850 went up, resulting in a slight price increase. Due to higher demand, both the 9600GSO and HD3850 saw a slight price increase. The GTX280/260 remained constant, and the 9800GTX+ replaced the 9800GTX.

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree. A person looking for a $100 card would likely prefer to spend roughly $100. While there's some leeway, it's more likely someone would move up to a $150 bracket, which is where the HD4850 is starting to fall. That's a much better alternative than the 8800GT, which is why I don't deal with $25 brackets.

I somewhat agree, but nowadays, ATI has caught up considerably with their Crossfire implementation. It wouldn't be hard for someone to determine their budget, cut it in half, pick the card that fits into that half budget, and then get a 2nd one.

Guess I must have been just lucky or you very unlucky. But I'm not affraid to buy from them again.
Did buy few times from them a no problem at all. Many times they also have lower price than NCIX, I like to buy from them it saves me the 8% provincial sales tax. They usually offer free ground shipping or air shipping at around $10. No problem what so ever.
