Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 vs 3080 vs 3070 vs 3060: Which GPU should you buy?

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series of GPUs can power the mightiest gaming PCs on the market today. Whether you build your own system or buy one from a manufacturer, you’re going to want a gaming PC with an RTX 30-series card. (Unless you opt to go with AMD, but that’s another story.) The only trouble — aside from actually finding a card in stock somewhere — is knowing which one to choose.

At the time of writing, there are five Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series GPUs, ranging in price from $329 to $1,499. That’s a pretty wide range. As you can imagine, these cards can power everything from a casual 1080p gaming machine to a 4K graphic design workhorse. Knowing which RTX 30-series GPU to buy can be challenging, particularly if you want it to play nicely with all the other parts in your prospective or existing machine.
