Opinions on Chinese graphics cards
The graphics cards you are going to see below are from Chinese assemblers using NVIDIA or AMD chipsets, so their components are well known. This means that the differences will be in the small details.
So if you are looking for a graphics card, the difference between the popular brands and the Chinese ones are the small details: both use the same chipset, and therefore have the same power, however in the Chinese ones you will save money and get a better performance: they have more RAM than in most famous brands.

How to know if it is a new or used graphics card
As we said before, some of the cards you will find are used.
It is very easy to distinguish between a used card and a new one, in the web version you just have to scroll down to the middle of the page, click on Details and look for “Item Status”:
In the app it is even easier, the information is highly visible just below the product name.
The graphics card is a very important part in the proper functioning of our computer: it is in charge of processing data from the CPU and sending it to an image output device, either a monitor or a TV.
Having a good graphics card is not only necessary to be able to play games on the computer with sufficient fluidity, it is also very useful for designers and architects who use post-production, rendering and 3D modeling programs.
Its main features are the following:
- Internal memory and processing: The more internal memory our card has, the more graphic information it can handle. That is to say, for games or 3D models with a lot of details we will need more RAM. It is also important to pay attention to the bandwidth (GB/s): it is better to choose a card with less GB of RAM but more bandwidth.
- Memory clock and core clock: These two values refer to the working frequencies of the memory and the core, the higher the value, the better our card will work as it will be able to access the memory faster and have more computing power.
- Connections, power supply and outputs: It is important to pay attention to the power supply of the graphics card, some are powered directly through the slot while others need a connection to the power supply. There are also different types of video output: VGA, HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort….
- Monitors: Although most of us only use one monitor output or 2 if you're a lucky one, it is possible that you need to output images from your PC to more than 2 monitors. If this is your case, we recommend that you take this into account before choosing your next graphics card.
