    It is more like a GTX 1070 review than Finding The Best Graphic Card

  • Shreyansh Mishra

    Anybody know the difference between zotac 1070 amp vs amp CORE

  • Wally Spencer

    why should i spend 400 dollars for a gpu?

  • VoltageLP

    I always get used video cards from eBay when a game that I'm interested in comes out, play through it and flip that card for 25-30% profit a week later, leaving my Radeon 5770 for everyday workloads until the next game comes out, that way I don't spend any money on my and even get some profit, plus getting to play with dozens of cards and processors is quite fun as well )

    you earned a subscriber mr. paul

  • AshFD2R

    Everyone talks about overclocking everything but is it necessary just to play games? forgive the noob question just starting to learn about gaming PCs before I build one, would a 1070 play any game in standard clock?

  • preston garvey

    mines 90% is that good?

  • DucksEverywhere

    Fuck you, miners. Fuck you.

  • Dank Ass

    I have the same card but it runs at 82 degrees after hours of gaming how do i get it to run quiet

  • L Weezy

  • Miles Shriver

    What would be a good CPU to use in a build where you use this

  • zZoKo

    simple...ASUS ROG GTX 1080 TI STRIX OC

  • Humble Meme Farmer

    I think the 1080Ti is the best card for my 720P monitor and Celeron processor.

  • The Master

    I need a GPU because my Acer only has a horrible one built in to the processor ( or thats what i was told ) What decent GPU can i get for 100 $ or less ?

  • Haiden

    I hate watching these videos, especially because my GPU seemed to die right after I updated drivers. :( RIP GTX 760 , you lasted me 4 years.

  • shoeb returns

    how is gigabyte gtx 1070 extreme edition? would you recommend it? does it have any negative issue? (N.B: I won't do OC) Please suggest.

  • Nahian Dumsi

    Who will pay the money for our best choice graphics card will YOU

  • CJ Mattias

    You don't need a 1070 for most games... 1060 will run most games high/ultra graphics@1080p at 60+ fps...

  • Ibrahim Haider

    You should be asked which 🤣

  • Antonio Galindo

    3 fan card will run cooler almost 10c lesser than 2 fan option. I have a zotac 1070 amp extreme and when oc to 2100mhz and 545 on memory max temp reaches 65c.

  • Hwi Seong

    I need help is it called graphics card or video card

  • beefaroni

    I just realized you’re true guy from NewEgg

  • Strobist-Bob

    it will be great if you make a dedicated video on graphics cards for content creators.Even better if you do it for photographers and videographers separately.Actually there is nothing good out there for photographers.I m taking 36mp raw images,i have a pretty complex workflow with multi layered images in Photoshop (sometimes 30-40 of them...) and looking for a good deal on a graphic card for my new build.No gaming at all. My question Asus GeForce GTX1050 Ti 4GB good enough or should i invest to something better? i m planning to go the i7 7700k way with ASUS z270E ,Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4-3200 Memory,Samsung - 960 EVO 500GB M.2-2280 Ssd,Corsair RMx Series 750X psu. Any reply would be much appreciated,thanks a lot

    Why are prices in USA always 15-20% cheaper than in Europe, for the same things? And that includes cars, tehnical equipment, electronics, and basically everything else, even for food (for the same brands)?And I'm not talking only about american brands (cause that would be understandable), but also for Asian and even European ones.And salaries are double of those in Europe, at average, in USA.

    We need a Noctua GPU.

    HI Paul...good information here. I often felt it would be a good idea for someone in hardware reviews to have a basic "baseline" graphics card that does equal processing as the Intel HD graphics built into the CPU. Why? Lots of folks simply ignore the Intel HD graphics feature and buy a discrete video card and often do not gain anything, if not lowering their GPU processing that came with the CPU. So, it would be interesting for a hardware review that would show the performance of the Intel HD Graphics in comparison to some of the video cards that perform equally or less than Intel.Why? To eliminate any confusion where to begin looking in performance levels with graphic cards and the price factor associated with them.

  • Thumbs up

    So my AMD Radeon HD 5450 is shit? Uuhhhh
