We've compiled a list highlighting the best NVIDIA Graphics Cards available now on StockX.

From budget-friendly offerings to some of the fastest GPUs in the world, NVIDIA has released some of the most popular graphics cards on the market, catering to a wide audience of PC gamers. Yet, for many buyers, the best NVIDIA graphics cards have been hard to come by. Exacerbated by semiconductor shortages, NVIDIA can’t make enough of these cards to go around. High demand in conjunction with short supply means StockX is now the best marketplace to find brand new graphics cards. 

Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current GPU, or are building a gaming PC for the first time, there is an NVIDIA RTX graphics card for everyone. With price and performance as our main considerations, we’ve compiled a list of the best NVIDIA graphics cards available now on StockX.

Best NVIDIA Graphics Cards

NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti 

The Jack of all Trades 

The NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition graphics card is perhaps the best bang for your buck out of all the graphics cards NVIDIA currently has to offer. It isn’t the least expensive GPU on this list, but the extra dollars go a long way for performance. Upon release, reviewers were quick to note that the RTX 3060 Ti would occupy the budget-friendly/mid-range performance space or the majority of what gamers are looking for in a GPU. 

While the 3060 Ti isn’t quite strong enough for 4K gaming, 1080p performance with ray tracing enabled is more than enough for most gamers who are hobbyists. When the dust settles and GPU availability returns to some semblance of normalcy, the NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti will probably be the most popular current-generation graphics card. 

Current prices on StockX are sitting around $700, and while that’s still a hefty sum, it actually represents a substantial discount compared to last year: according to our data, prices have dropped over $500 since last April. For those who’ve been waiting for prices to come down to earth, now is the perfect time to buy a 3060 Ti.

Best NVIDIA Graphics Cards

NVIDIA RTX 3090 Ti 

For The Enthusiasts 

NVIDIA calls the 3090 Ti the graphics card for the “most demanding gamers, content creators, and data scientists.” The NVIDIA 3090 Ti is perhaps the most unobtainable GPU on this list, marketed toward a small segment of highly-engaged gamers.

The NVIDIA 3090 Ti is no doubt an engineering marvel. The sheer size of the enormous GPU means everything inside your PC will need to be customized around the 3090 Ti, and the card will handle virtually anything you throw at it. For most people, the only time they’ll see a 3090 Ti is prominently showcased inside their favorite Twitch streamer’s PC. But if you’re willing to pay the premium, this GPU is the ultimate flex.

For data scientists and engineers that require a fast and reliable graphics card, the 3090 and 3090 Ti are the best in the industry. According to PC Gamer, the NVIDIA 3090 Ti is not really a card for gamers, and unlike the other cards on this list, this one really is tailored for a different kind of workload (though, it can obviously handle gaming, too). 

Still, the 3090 Ti is the latest and greatest from NVIDIA — a reminder of how far technology continues to push the boundaries of what was previously thought possible.

Best Budget-Friendly GPU 

The NVIDIA RTX 3050 line of graphics cards is the most affordable offering in the current generation of NVIDIA GPUs, albeit compromising performance for price.

Like other 30 series cards, NVIDIA 3050 graphics cards will feature NVIDIA’s Ampere Architecture, offering ray tracing at 60fps at 1080p. The NVIDIA RTX 3050 graphics card also features 8GB GDDR6 memory and the company’s third-generation tensor cores. 

According to NVIDIA, “RTX-powered ray tracing and DLSS are the new standard in gaming and the RTX 3050 makes them more accessible than ever.” If you’re looking to get started with your first PC gaming setup, or are looking to get great value from an affordable graphics card, the RTX 3050 should be at the top of your list. 

PC Gamer called the NVIDIA 3050 graphics card a good GPU for 1080p and 1440p gaming. While 4K resolution isn’t an option with the 3050, that isn’t the intended audience for the card, either. With the 3050, you’re getting ray tracing support and solid performance at respectable resolutions, all at a great price. 

Release Date January 2022
Retail Price $249
NVIDIA CUDA Cores 2,560
RT Cores 20
Tensor Cores 80

Best NVIDIA Graphics Cards

NVIDIA RTX 3070

The Best of the Best

NVIDIA’s 3080 and 3090 graphics cards are widely considered to be enthusiast-level GPUs, boasting high price points and specs that are targeted toward content creators, professional gamers, and streamers. The NVIDIA 3070, however, is arguably the best graphics card for the seasoned PC gamer — someone willing to spend a little bit more money compared to the 3060 Ti for one of the best GPUs available. 

TechRadar called the NVIDIA RTX 3070 the best graphics card on the market, citing great performance for the price. According to TechRadar, the 3070 is about 30% slower than the 3080, but 40% less expensive at retail. 

That’s not to say you’re compromising on performance compared to the enthusiast-level GPUs. The NVIDIA RTX 3070 boasts great ray tracing performance, uncompromising on 4K while maintaining high frame rates. Despite releasing in October 2020, the NVIDIA RTX 3070 still stands as the best GPU for most PC gamers in both performance and value for the money. Last year, this graphics card was trading on StockX for over $1500, but now prices have fallen to around $700, making this an excellent time to buy.
