XCOM 2 or Hitman, then maybe it’s time to look for a new GPU.

In our guide to the
best graphics card we’ve detailed the three best GPUs in terms of the overall price/performance hero, the best high-end GPU for 4K and the best budget gaming video card too.
And here are the best prices we’ve found for each today…
“The GTX 970’s overall performance is fantastic for the price. For most gamers, we still think this is the best value available.”
“Why the GTX 980 Ti? Because at $650, it delivers nearly all of the performance of the $1000 Titan X.”
“It’s capable of delivering over 30 frames per second in Grand Theft Auto 5 at 1080p, 40+ fps in Shadow of Mordor and well over 60 fps in BioShock Infinite, all at ultra settings. Pretty damn good for a $200 card.”
