The graphics card is the most vital component to enjoy a game on your PC, and with each passing year, those games demand more and more resources from your GPU. The media say that from May 2022 it will be easier to get a graphics card at a good price. Let’s hope it’s true.
What to Look For In a Good Graphics Card?
Resolution: The more pixels you are going to use on your screen, the more performance you will need. You don’t need a high-end GPU to play at 1080p, but if you’re going to play at 4K, you know you have to spend your money on a good model.
Video Memory: A card with 4 GB is the minimum you should buy, but if it has 6 GB, 8 GB or more would be excellent.
Power Supply: Your power supply needs to have enough power and the right 6-pin and 8-pin connectors.
Ray Tracing and DLSS: The latest graphics cards support ray tracing, which is used to enhance visual effects. DLSS offers smart scaling and anti-aliasing to increase performance (only available on Nvidia RTX cards).
I5-12600K Best GPUs:
GeForce RTX 3080:-
With support for resolutions up to 8K and DLSS algorithms it is more than 30% faster than the previous generation 2080 Ti card. If you want to play in 4K or 1440p this is the model you need, but you have to buy it at a reasonable price. If you’re only going to be gaming in 1080p, this card is too much for you.
This model should cost about 700, 800 Euros. If you spend a lot of 1000 Euros, don’t even think about buying. Not worth it. Also, you’re going to have to wait for stock. It is more reasonably priced than the 3090.
With this card we can finally have decent ray tracing and DLSS: The NVIDIA DLSS is a new learning neural network that increases frame rate and generates perfect and sharp images for your games. DLSS is powered by dedicated AI processors in RTX GPUs called Tensor Cores.
GeForce RTX 3090:-
An outrageous price if you can find it… It’s the fastest on the market, the best for designers… Its performance is only 10% higher than the RTX 3080… See if it’s worth it. The RTX 3090 is the only GeForce Ampere with NV Link support, making it perfect for professional applications and computing. The 24GB of GDDR6X memory is also useful in various content creation applications.
AMD’s RX 6900 XT challenges the RTX 3090 on traditional rasterization, but that’s it. Just on that. You have to keep in mind that it needs 350 watts, that it is very expensive and that it does not have much more performance than its little brother, the 3080.
