Graphics cards are of the utmost importance in rigs intended for gaming or workstation PCs. For graphically intensive software and high-end games, a discrete card like those here is a must. AMD and NVIDIA dominate this market, and both firms offer a huge variety of cards across a broad spectrum of prices – cards for gamers start at just over £20 and can reach almost £1,000. Features and cooling solutions are just as diverse, but with any card you need to check that your case has room for it, your PSU has the right connections and that its display outputs meet your needs.
Graphics processing has become an essential ingredient to the modern PC. Nowadays, we simply demand more from our PCs. If you want to enhance photos, edit videos, watch movies, play games, or if you simply desire a Premium Windows® 7 Experience, the NVIDIA® GeForce® 210 graphics card brings impressive graphics processing power to your PC at an incredible value.
Every PC deserves dedicated graphics. Bring your multimedia performance to life with an NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 610 graphics card. Step up to NVIDIA dedicated graphics for a faster, more immersive experience in your favorite applications—every time.
NVIDIA's GeForce GT 730 is available in a number of configurations. The one with 96 cores uses the older Fermi architecture, while the 384 core version uses the latest, highly efficient Maxwell one, and is available with either 2GB of DDR3 or 1GB of faster GDDR5. They all run over the PCI Express 2.0 bus and require no PSU connection, making them very suitable for upgrading older machines. They can handle some very light gaming workloads but are most suitable for silent home theatre and multimedia PCs.
The GT 740 is another card that can be purchased with either GDDR3 memory or quicker GDDR5 – both are available in 1GB and 2GB configurations. Its 384 cores give it enough power to provide a clear upgrade over integrated graphics in 3D accelerated apps, HD video playback and light gaming.
Based on the latest Pascal architecture the GeForce GTX 1050 is equipped with 640 cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory and delivers three times the performance of the GTX 650 and double that of the GTX 750 Ti. Choose a GTX 1050 to enjoy all the latest games at 60fps at 1920 x 1080; also ideal for low-power, small form factor PCs.
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is based on the latest Pascal architecture which provides awesome performance while consuming very little power. Armed with 768 cores and 4GB of GDDR5 memory the GTX 1050 Ti provides smooth frame rates in all games at 1920 x 1080.
The 3GB version of the GeForce GTX 1060 mid-range graphics card has fewer cores than the 6GB version (1152 versus 1280) but it is significantly more cost effective. As the fourth card based on the new Pascal architecture it not only runs games faster than previous generation Maxwell cards, but consumes less power and is quieter.
The 6GB version of the GeForce GTX 1060 mid-range graphics card has more cores than the 3GB version (1280 versus 1152) and so runs games faster. As the third card based on the new Pascal architecture it not only runs games faster than previous generation Maxwell cards, but consumes less power and is quieter.
The GeForce GTX 1070 is the second GPU using the new Pascal architecture that replaces older Maxwell cards such as the GTX 970. Pascal means much higher performance and power efficiency, so the GTX 1070 with 1,920 cores is ideally suited for gaming at resolutions such as 2,560 x 1,440 or a VR headset.
The GeForce GTX 1080 is the first GPU based on the new Pascal architecture that is built using a tiny 16nm FinFET process for increased performance and power efficiency. With 2,560 cores running at 1.6GHz or higher plus 8GB of super-fast GDDR5X memory the GTX 1080 powers through games at high resolutions including 4K plus VR headsets such as the HTC Vive.
NVIDIA's current mainstream offering is the highly efficient GTX 750 Ti. It sports 640 cores and 2GB of fast GDDR5 memory, and since it requires no PSU connection it can be used to upgrade almost any machine with the ability to game at 1080p with high detail settings in many games at much lower noise levels than older graphics cards.
The GeForce GTX 950 sits midway between the GTX 750 Ti and GTX 960 and is designed to give a smooth frame rate in mainstream games such as GTA V and The Witcher 3 at 1080p, a resolution of 1920 x 1080. With a low TDP of just 95W the GTX 950 is also ideal for playing MOBA games such as DOTA 2 and League of Legends in which you can expect a great low latency experience.
The GTX 970 is NVIDIA's best value high-performance graphics card. Its 1,664 cores and 4GB of VRAM ensure smooth frame rates at high resolutions, but it won't break the bank. The second-gen Maxwell architecture brings support for the latest Gameworks visual technologies, and is so efficient that some cards can operate semi-passively while others are small enough for dinky mini-ITX PCs.
From adapters to replacement brackets, these accessories are aimed at helping you get the right and desired use from your equipment.
VGA coolers are the best way to cool your Graphics card when overclocking. This prevents damage to your components and can also decrease fan noise on certain graphics cards. Updated
NVIDIA GRID™ technology offers the ability to offload graphics processing from the CPU to the GPU in virtualized environments, allowing the data center manager to deliver true PC graphics-rich experiences to more users for the first time.
These unobtrusive Quadro cards are designed to bolster business productivity by enabling a wide variety of multi-display set-ups. With industry standard connections and up to 2GB of frame buffer, the cards here are capable of driving up to four displays using just a single expansion slot, and many are passively cooled too for complete silence. Check individual specifications for maximum display support and video outputs.
NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards target workstation users and are certified for use with a broad range of industry leading applications. The cards here are considered entry-level and are priced and configured as such, but with up to 2GB of memory and support for up to 4 displays, they'll still deliver professional results in 3D applications such as computer aided design (CAD). Their low power consumption and single slot designs make them ideal for smaller workstations where power and space limitations are tight.

The high-end cards in this category have unrivalled processing power, flexible display configurations and up to 24GB of memory, depending on the model. They deliver the very best performance for 3D users when dealing with the most demanding computer aided design (CAD) and digital content creation (DCC) and simulation applications.
NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards target 3D workstation users and are certified for use with a broad range of industry leading applications. These mid-range cards offer more performance for 3D applications like computer aided design (CAD) and digital content creation (DCC) and more connectivity than the low-end models yet retain the single slot design, meaning they're still suitable for those looking to save on space. 08/04/15 Updated
An SLI (Scalable Link Interface) bridge is used to connect two or more NVIDIA graphics cards together for increased performance in games and applications. SLI bridges come in different sizes as the PCI-E slots are not always in the same place on motherboards, so make sure you buy the right size SLI bridge.
NVIDIA's Tesla cards are designed for GPGPU (general purpose computing on graphics processing units), meaning they are added to systems and supercomputers to complement the existing CPU with a vast array of parallel cores that only a GPU can provide, increasing the potential throughput massively. Typically, they do not feature display outputs, so they're unsuitable for 3D workstations or gamers, but their massive number of cores and multiple gigabytes of memory make them ideal for applications such as computational fluid dynamics, weather modelling and financial computing.
Providing the ultimate VR gaming experience, these high-end gaming PCs feature the 2016 edition of the incredibly-powerful NVIDIA TITAN X graphics card with 3584 cores, making them ideal for playing all types of games at a high frame rate on a high resolution 2560 x 1440 or 4K / 3840 x 2160 monitor or a VR headset such as the HTC Vive.
