Choosing the right GPU
Picking the best GPU, you can afford is where you should aim. It’s always better to spend as much as you can now rather than having to spend another chunk of change sooner than later. Which GPU you should pick also largely comes down to the type of monitor you’re using. If it supports AMD FreeSync, you’ll want to consider AMD GPUs; the same goes for NVIDIA and monitors with G-Sync.
Should you want to enjoy some 1440p gaming and plan to upgrade to a 4K display at a later date, the MSI Radeon RX 6900 XT or ASUS TUF Gaming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 will do just fine should you be able to locate one in stock at the correct price. Please do not fall for scalpers who manage to buy them at RRP and sell at an inflated price.
You can still save some on your GPU without sacrificing too much on performance. The ASRock Radeon RX 6800 and ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge OC are awesome mid-tier GPUs and are perfect for 1440p gaming. They won’t break your bank, nor will they bottleneck the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU. Don’t see a GPU here that catches your eye? Have a look at our pick for the overall best graphics card.
