Best Graphics cards for FIFA 17:

We mention the list of Graphics cards that meet the Minimum and Recommended Requirements of FIFA 17. Here, make a note that we do not put up all the Video cards that meet the requirements, but only the best among them.

Graphics cards that meet the Minimum Requirements:

# Radeon R7 260 4GB :

According to the benchmark test, this Graphics card just proved to meet the minimum requirements with stable FPS. But, you need to make sure that you have atleast 8 GB RAM and an i3 equivalent processor installed in your PC. If you have a minimum budget, then you can definitely go for it. However, if you are looking for maxing out FIFA 17 on your PC, then this is not the option.

#Geforce GTX 750Ti :

From the benchmark results, it’s found that this Graphics card performs a little better than the R7 260. However, it does not meet the recommended requirements. This may not be the Best Graphics card for FIFA 17, but yeah, if you have 8GB RAM atleast with an i5 equivalent processor, then yeah, this can be a choice. However, if you are on a higher budget, then we recommend you to go for the Graphics cards in the “Recommend list” in this post.

GTX_750Ti_FIFA_17

#NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950

As of right now, perhaps no video card offers better price-to-performance than the GTX 950. In fact, for about ~$150 or less, the 950 will allow you to max out any game on a 1080p monitor all while maintaining an excellent framerate.

To show off it’s power, the 950 achieves around ~50 FPS in GTA V, around ~45 FPS in Metro: Last Light, and around ~35 FPS in Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, all on a 1080p monitor at very high/ultra settings.

And, perhaps the most enticing feature of the GTX 950 is the fact that it is extremely power-efficient—which means that if you are upgrading an older system, you probably won’t need to go out and get a bigger PSU to handle it.

#AMD Radeon R7 370

In the same price range as the GTX 950, AMD offers the Radeon R7 370. Unfortunately, though, where the 950 shines, the R7 370 lags quite a bit behind.

If we don’t consider price and the performance of the GTX 950, the R7 370 is a very capable video card at ~$150. However, given that the 950 beats it in every benchmark, costs the same, and consumes a lot less power, it’s safe to say that the GTX 950 is the better of the two cards.

Graphics Cards that meet the Recommended Requirements:

#NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070

NVIDIA made waves with the release of their new GTX 1070 and 1080. In terms of performance, the GTX 1070 is actually on par with NVIDIA’s previous generation flagship GPU, the GTX 980 Ti.

All for a fraction of what the 980 Ti costs.

Or, in other words, the GTX 1070 is the most affordable 4K-ready graphics card every made.

Early benchmarks show that the Founder’s Edition of the GTX 1070 can achieve ~45 FPS onGTA V and around ~50 FPS on Metro: Last Light at 4K resolution.

And, as the card has just been released, it’s likely those benchmarks will go up even higher with better coolers and higher clock rates from the third-party distributors, as well as better driver performance.

#R9 Fury X

While the R9 Fury X was able to hold it’s own against the GTX 980 Ti in most benchmarks, now with the release of the GTX 1070 and the 1080, the Fury X has become somewhat obsolete, especially considering the 1070 can perform on par with it (and, in most cases, better than it) for a fraction of the price.

Of course, there is also the R9 Fury and Fury Nano, but again, for the same price or less, the GTX 1070 will offer a big performance increase.

So, for now, rather than spending over $600 on the Fury X, you’d be better off going with a GTX 1070, a GTX 1080, or waiting until later this year when the RX 490 and 490X release.

#NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080

The new top-dog on the scene, the GTX 1080 is perhaps the most impressive video card ever made.

With an MSRP of about ~$700, the GTX 1080 is one of the few single-GPU options that can handle 4K gaming and VR-gaming without breaking a sweat.

Early benchmarks show that the Founder’s Edition of the GTX 1080 can achieve ~56 FPS onGTA V and around ~65 FPS on Metro: Last Light at 4K resolution.

Ultimately, if you are looking for the absolutely on the market for the best Graphics Card for Gaming, the 1080 is the one for you.
