We enjoyed hearing about your CPU choices last week, so now let's turn our attention to the other key processor powering our rigs; the GPU. This could well be the most expensive component in a modern PC, and if you have gaming ambitions, the right card can have a profound impact on how your games look today, and how they're likely to fare in the years ahead.

Few would deny that Nvidia currently rules the market with a new range of GTX and RTX cards, but AMD continues to offer alternatives at compelling price points. What we want to know is where you've chosen to spend your money. To find out, this week's question asks: which graphics card(s) are you using?

Let us know your choices using the comments facility below, and don't skimp on the extra details - we'd love to know why you chose the card you did, and how you're feeling about that decision in hindsight.

GTX 1060 6gb, brought Jan17 think around £250. Still does the job, will skip the current rtx crap..
RX 570 XFX RS 4gb stock bought for £65. Bargain buy from a miner, happy until £200 Navi with 2x the performance of this guy comes around.

In winter I don't need to turn on the heating.
Now it's summer I need a spill resistant keyboard to keep the dripping sweat out.
2nd hand 980ti, got it for £250 nov ‘17. Replaced the thermal paste recently, and it handles 1440p as well as I need. the EVGA utility has an option to limit fps (and this limits power used accordingly), so it’s nice and quiet in normal use - with the fan control as good as it is the only reason to upgrade is the power cost, and for my use that doesn't work out until 1070s come down to £40 or so
GTX 770. Adequate for general use & my limited gaming :)
