List Rules GPU manufacturers only, not just video card manufacturers!

These are the best GPU manufacturers in the world, ranked by fans and system builders alike. Please note, these are GPU manufacturers and not video card manufacturers. For a crowdranked list for video cards, see this list of the best video card manufacturers. The GPU is what powers the video card and you can think of it as the video card's central processor.

So how good are these GPU manufacturers? Well, they're  trusted by some of the best laptop brands in the world. As easy as buying a prebuilt computer can be, there is a definite satisfaction that comes with building your own PC.

Beyond the obvious monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers that sit on your desk. The computer itself requires a CPU, motherboard, RAM, graphics card, sound card, network card, power supply, hard disk drive, power supply, and a case to put it all in. Some motherboards may also have those separate expansion cards already integrated. If you're careful, you may even be able to build your own custom machine for less money that it would cost for a pre-built model. When you upgrade your hardware, you can also sell the individual components to help offset your costs. Good luck!
