It’s important to keep in mind that the definition of ‘best’ depends on your particular use case.

As you’d expect, performance typically tends to follow price – better performing graphics cards are often the more expensive ones.

It’s worth noting that graphics card prices are crazy at the moment – they have been for the past few years as a result of demand from cryptocurrency miners creating shortages in the graphics card markets.
