For under $50?

What are you looking to do with it? Under $50 you will struggle for something with good performance

Surely you mean "Under $500"

Palit GeForce GTX 1070 Dual - and its only £403.23, epic deal great for gaming, just ask for the website if your interested :)

For £50 the cards are "greatest" at a particular thing. One may be better at driving multiple displays, one may have passive cooling and be best for a quiet home theatre system and one may be clocked higher and better for gaming and be fan cooled.

It strongly depends what you want the card to do in this price range.

To be honest, a $50 Graphics Card is unlikely to be much of an advance on the last couple of years On-board Graphics.

As you have priced in $'s assume you are in the States where the Market may be different but a Pre-used one might be worth the risk.

If you were to tell us a little more about your PC, we might be able to help you more

For my opinion, its Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 is the best graphic card. What do you guys say about GTX 1080?

There are no great graphic cards under 50 :) if add 0 and a little you can own GTX1080, it's awesome :) built-in thoughts

As per my knowledge Nvdia is the best graphic card for gaming and when it comes to video play back then also it works great but i have not ever done video editing.

I do not think that you can get anything great from a GPU for under 50 dollars. Better to raise your bet and get a better one.

Used cards sub £60 on ebay in order of performance:

AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6870 AMD/ATI Radeon 5850 Nvidia GTX470 & GTX570 AMD Radeon 6770 AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5670 (Still OK, but avoid on Windows 10. Good for low power use.) AMD/ATI Radeon HD 4890 (last resort)

None of these cards are going to be any match for a GTX 1080ti, but they are MUCH better than new cards at the same price (IE the GT710 and R5 240, which are utterly useless). Just watch out for the power use on these cards (They will also run much hotter)
