A lot changes in a year. AMD has brought the Radeon RX 400 and RX 500 series to market in the graphics-card space, powered by the Polaris architecture. Nvidia continues to rule the roost in premium graphics, releasing new GPUs almost on a whim.

With AMD promising to shake up the market once again through the release of the Vega architecture in the coming months and Nvidia purportedly teasing the upcoming Volta chip, there is a lot to be excited about, especially if you have a fat wallet in your pocket.

Yet such forward talk doesn't address the here and now. What we want to know for this edition of the QOTW is: which graphics card is in your main PC right now and why you chose it?

It could be stop-gap for something newer, an older card that is begging to be replaced, or you might have not worried about what's next and gone for something new and shiny just recently. Let us know what you're packing in the comments facility below.

EVGA 1070 FTW, because i needed to upgrade from my EVGA 660Ti and i was too cheap to get a 1080.
I have a 5870 1GB Ati and would like a nice new Vega/Volta to replace it!! I wonder if I am running the oldest card here?

I was given this card by a friend when he upgraded his GPU many years ago.

2600k Sandy bridge
16GB DDR3
250GB SSD
Win10 Pro
My rig is packing a 780Ti which is really starting to need replacing, especially at 3440x1440
Gigabyte GTX 980 Xtreme Gaming.

Upgrading if Volta is any good.
EVGA 980 FTW.

Went up from a 750Ti. Pretty happy with it.
