'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Save up to $220 on a GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card

Build a great customized gaming rig and get beautiful graphics with this on-sale dedicated graphics card. You can save up to $220 off of the original price.
Written by Rebecca Isaacs, Staff Writer

Building a customized gaming desktop can get pricey, and making sure your GPU can run the latest games is one of the most important pieces to truly enjoying your PC gaming. If you want one of the best graphics cards on the market, the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card is a great option. If you've been waiting for a sale, now is the time to buy; it's currently on sale for up to $220 off the original price, but you have to use a code and act fast.

It comes packed with 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6 so you can get top-quality images whether you're playing a game that you recently purchased from the Steam Summer Sale or if you just want to catch some streaming on your computer. It also features a core clock of 1815 MHz and 5888 CUDA Cores for those that prefer to overclock or tinker with the graphics card settings.

Right now, the graphics card is $170 off, but use the code VGAGBET246 to get another $50 off for a limited time. After the savings, you can get this graphics card for only $549. Considering we're still in the midst of supply chain issues and chip shortages, this is a steal of a deal. If you're considering picking it up, we do not know when the sale will end, so it's best to pick it up sooner rather than later.
