GPU - NVIDIA
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.
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. Keep an eye out for the latest Plus versions which have higher clocked memory for even faster performance in games.

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.
