Well, I am thinking of maybe upgrading my PC and wondering what kind of graphics card shall I get. I have Intel currently.

If possible, Id like to ask for you to please rate the Intel, Nvidia, and AMD graphic cards and also tell me your opnions about them.

Thank you, and have a great day!

Nvidia & Intel have good cards/chips but are expensive as fuck (thanks Bitcoin)!

The AMD Ryzen 5 chip is almost equivalent to an Intel I7 but $300 less, so I'd say AMD wins there.

As for graphics cards, Nvidia is ahead of AMD, but I'd only go Nvidia for shadowplay, because again, Nvidia cards are expensive as all hell. Even then, AMD has a program similar to Shadowplay and their cards aren't actually that bad for their price

I just bought a IBUYPOWER Gaming desktop that has a NVidia GeForce GTX 1070i graphics card in it along with a 1 TB Hard Drive Had the computer since Christmas and works well for what I use it for.

The Higher the number, the better the graphics card (example: 1070i is better than 1060)
I would recommend NVidia personally.

Wouldn't surprise me given, the stock of my desktop dropped significantly in a matter of a 1-3 weeks.
Tis very good, yes.

Way back in late November/early December of last year, I got a pre-built HP computer designed specifically for gaming. It came with a Nvidia 1070 GTX and an Intel I-7, plus 8 gigs of RAM. It was only $540 thanks to Black Friday, and I don’t even have a real monitor (I use a small flat-screen TV that’s roughly the size of an average-large monitor), but everything looks beautiful. I can run just about any game on max settings and still get upwards of 200 FPS. That’s not even mentioning games like TF2, which I can absolutely obliterate at max settings without even a single FPS config.

AMD, on the other hand? I have no experience with them, but from what I’ve heard, they’re basically a bargain bin Nvidia. They’re more affordable and will get the job done, but it’s generally recommended to go with Nvidia instead if you can.

Edit: Just realized how much of an absolute necro-post this is. Sorry.
