'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.

This is a monster of a graphics card, and it will take up a lot of space in any PC -- two or even three slots -- so don't expect to put this into a tiny system. The PC will need a beefy power supply unit (PSU); the manufacturer recommends a minimum of 750W. (And I'd look at that as a bare minimum.)

Whether you're upgrading an existing gaming PC or building a new one, this deal on the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card will allow you to shave a little off the cost.
