8-Conclusion: Performance Per Dollar

1-Best Graphics Cards For The Money July 2013

2-Best Entry-Level Graphics Cards: $100 And Under

____________________________________________________________________
In an effort to further express the performance you get for every dollar spent on our recommendations, we chart out the hierarchy of cards in our column. The red, black, and blue bars represent average performance at entry, medium, and high detail settings and resolutions, while the orange line represents cost. If you mouse over the bar chart, you'll get a pop-up that shows performance relative to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 690 (our 100% ceiling). Mousing over the dots on the orange line pops up a low price easily attainable on Newegg. Clicking a bar or dot gives you the option to shop for that card, taking you to a link of our pick in that category. Often, our picks give you a lower price than the average displayed.

As far as performance goes, the first clear group of GPUs includes the new GeForce GTX 760 and below. You see a great correlation between speed and cost up to this $250 card. Every dollar you spend yields a commensurate return in performance. In the value-oriented segment, that's exactly what you want to see.
Beyond that point, price increases faster than performance, negatively affecting absolute value. Having said that, if you're a hardcore gamer who desires high resolutions and taxing detail settings, cards like the GeForce GTX 770 will make the difference between playable and unplayable frame rates.
Nvidia's GeForce GTX 780 is significantly faster than the Radeon HD 7970 or GeForce GTX 770, but its $650 price point hurts value. The same can be said for the GeForce GTX Titan, with a $1000 sticker that defies its meager improvement over the 780. In that highest tier, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 690 performs better than the Radeon HD 7990.
