#1 Nvidea GeForce GTX 1080
The Nvidea Geforce 1080 graphics card is the best of the best, when it comes to graphics cards. It scored highest in our tests at 1080p, 1440p and 4K resolutions - by some margin. The 1080 is in its prime when you are using VR, games that have previously been unplayable using the old 980's become smooth, fun experiences. At it's current price it's the most expensive graphics card on the market so unless you have deep pockets, or the need to play at 4R/VR level, this might not be the best pick for you.
#2 Radeon RX 480
The RX 480 comes in at the number two spot in our list for very good reason. This graphics card might not produce the results of a 1080 or even a 980 but with its almost optimal FPS rate at both 1080p and 1440p you are definitely getting your value for money with this card. This card is up to £100 cheaper than Nvidea's 980 (25% less) and offers test scores of 2-5% less, which is why we made the RX 480 our number two.
#3 Nvidea GeForce GTX 1070
This graphics card is billed as Nvidea's affordable top-end offering. The 1070 can comfortably run any game at ultra 1080p/1440p settings. For those not wanting to spend the astronomical amounts charged for the 1080 and that don't need the 4K/VR offering, the 1070 is the one for you.
#4 Nvidea GeForce 970
The 970 is our "on a budget" option. It offers 40+ FPS at 1080p/1440p and is a standard unit for those looking to add to their inbuilt option, at low cost. Pound for pound, it is rated the best value for money option of any graphics cards but for a hardcore gamer, it probably won't have enough power.
#5 Nvidea GeForce 980ti
For a long time the 980ti was the go-to model for many gaming computers. It's relative low-price and near equal specifications, in compairon to the TitanX, made it an easy way of companies offering gaming computers for a diffwerent price. This brilliant piece of kit is still one of the best graphics cards on the market, scoring highly in both our frame-rate and value for money tests. This graphics cards will run 1080p/1440p at 75+FPS, without breaking a sweat.
