Buying a new graphics card can be expensive, so we decided to compare GPUs from different manufacturers to determine which online store offers the best deals on AMD and Nvidia favourites.

The following stores were included in the comparison:

  • Rebel Tech
  • Wootware
  • Evetech
  • Loot
  • Computers Only
  • Titan Ice

Below are the prices for various graphics cards across the different online stores.

Verdict

The majority of the card prices were all within several hundred rand of each other across the different stores, with only a few cases of price discrepancies large enough to make a buyer think twice.

Rebel Tech performed well in the comparison, and is one of the cheapest places to buy a graphics card in South Africa.

Wootware and Evetech also offered the lowest prices on certain cards, and was not far behind Rebel Tech on the remainder.

It should be noted that Evetech mainly stocks MSI graphics cards and does not list most Asus, Gigabyte, and Sapphire units.

Loot and Titan Ice had consistent prices only slightly higher than other stores across the comparison, while Computers Only listed the lowest price for a single product.
