Thinking hard about buying a GPU, and the price/performance graphs are essentially useless, because prices vary wildly. Would it be possible to make it so I can change those numbers myself? Big rework (because the graphs would have to be made in the browser rather than just being pictures) and maybe it wouldn't be popular, but it would be pretty cool and useful. It's not hard to calculate that on my own, but still.

Taking it further would be the ability to essentially make "ones own" review. Meaning choosing which specific cards I want to see. Maybe not interesting for eveyry review, but something akin to Anandtech Bench stuff, but more useable and easier.

Great idea, definitely not something that's easy to do

Gaining an understanding of how price and performance affect GPU selection can be accomplished by experimenting with the GPU chart on your own. Google Sheets and Microsoft Excel are two examples of data analysis tools that you can use. To change the cost and performance of GPUs as needed, you can make spreadsheets and use calculating algorithms. For computations and adjustments, baseline information on the cost and capabilities of GPUs is required.

what do you want to see? as in real time changes to prices and the performance for different variations of gpu (i.e RtX 4070ti oc and non oc models)?

Maybe something that grabs the price from PCPartPicker? That tracks prices across regions and stores.

Sure, but not all regions and stores, and "lowest price" may not be the best price. If say Amazon has a GPU for €700 an a great local chain sell it for €720 I'd buy it from the local chain.
what do you want to see? as in real time changes to prices and the performance for different variations of gpu (i.e RtX 4070ti oc and non oc models)?

If that was possible sure, but it's not. And maybe I want to put in prices a local shop has? Thus the ability to just add any number.

Yeah, it's not that hard but having an online tool for it would be cool.
