How to choose a graphics card: Your 2020 buying guide

This video will walk you through the basic factors you’ll need to consider when choosing a graphics card, or GPU. Though a computer can do basic work and even play some games without a dedicated graphics card, you’ll want a GPU to do any serious gaming or video production.

When picking a GPU you’ll likely start by determining your performance needs and price range – and then you’ll want to take a look at whether NVIDIA or AMD has the bettering products to fit your needs. Once you’ve narrowed down your choice, you should start to consider the different options offered by companies like ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte in order to get the exact features you want at the right price for you.

    if i have a monitor that uses VGA, will it still work if the graphics card doesnt have one?

  2. HollyJolly on March 18, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    So I’m seeing mixed reactions in the comments. Is the 2060 not a good fit for beginners? I’m just trying to play XIV and be able to stream it and I’m quite new to these level of specs (man, and I thought I knew about computers)

  3. Dale Wilson on March 18, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    Can somebody tell me what card I could get for around 150usd ?

  4. Dylan Fortner on March 18, 2021 at 10:28 pm

  6. Justin Hernandez on March 18, 2021 at 10:29 pm

  7. Fahrrad Mittelfranken on March 18, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Do you think the gtx 1080 ti is still worth it in 2020? Im thinking of getting one secondhand for around 350€

  17. Pat Adams on March 18, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Is the rtx3080 better than the 2080super?

  18. Mengwai Jim on March 18, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    What does those numbers mean like “2080ti”? Is the higher it is, the better it is?

  19. Shain Andrews on March 18, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Video could have been done in say 5-10 seconds. How to choose your graphics card in 2020… you pick what you can afford, and happens to be available. See you in 2021!

  20. Eijiro Kirishima on March 18, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Awesome Video! What Nvidia card DDR3 4GB-6GB can I use on a HP Compaq 8200 (slim) that can fit ?

  28. boredstudent on March 18, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    I want to eventually get a 20 or 30 series GPU but for my first gaming PC that I built, I went with a GTX 1080 Ti. And I went with an Intel CPU. i7-9700K. I was considering going with an i9-9900K but 9700 is what I hear a lot of gaming PCs use

  29. guy on March 18, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    How do you pick a video card?
    Mario says: Check the specs and tech, test it out also to see if its good. Luigi says: B I G N U M B E R S I N T H E N A M E,
    M O R E F R A M E S I N T H E
    G A M E

    Tico will be considered a good quality video card:

    I ordered a faulty graphics card from you and never got a new one

  32. I_Mito on March 18, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    These graphics cards cost as much as my pc I’m just selling my ox and switching back to console so I don’t have to deal with this

  33. Muhammad Rafif on March 18, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Meh. In the past centuries you can get a performance graphics card for just 250$.
    In now days we are fightning against scalpers, deep AI learners, bitcoin miners, cloud gaming servers. Are you wish this situations gonna Let the price down? Lol. Gtx 1080Ti is still expensive in 2021.gatcha

  34. Hitesh Hotchandani on March 18, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Newegg is shady business. They make returns a nightmare. I still don’t have a refund.

  50. espnz _ on March 18, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    I bought my monitor not knowing anything. I just thought I could plug in my Xbox and play. For some reason I can’t control the audio or the brightness does that mean I need a graphic card?
