The graphics card is without doubt the star of any PC capable of gaming, but the options out there are vast. So it's TechRadar to the rescue with our new and improved definitive guide to the top ten fastest and best commercial graphics cards on the planet.
The graphics card is the thoroughbred racehorse of your rig, but picking through the nags that are on offer out there is not for the faint hearted. In this guide though we'll let you know what's hot, what's cool and what the fastest GPUs available are.

To that end we've also put together a five card shortlist of the best last-gen graphics cards, which may not have the DX11 smarts, but will drive your games at cracking frame rates.
So how does your graphics card stand in our countdown, and is it time for an upgrade? Well, there's only one way to find out...
