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 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.

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.
