Not the card for everybody but a great upgrade for anyone who uses a 750ti or thereabouts. Perfect for introducing kids to the world of PC gaming, nothing comes close at this price. Cheap and cheerful…

Looks like several online shops in uk are selling this card for a crazy price. Normally rx 480 and 1060 are going for at least 218, these are around 153-160 pounds. Graphics processor family AMD

What about dual 480 performance?

In some tests thats nearer to a 1080, but not everything can utilise it fully.
What about dual 480 performance?
Tarek4u
Hi guys... In terms of comparison... Is the 480 similar to the 1070?​
Yeah, Def the 1060. Similar performance in many aspects, should pull ahead in dx12 stuff and as drivers mature. AMD won't have competitors for the high end nvidia cards until their release in a few months.

Great deal, but the delivery time has put me off ordering this.
I googled a bit about 1-2 months delivery on amazon and it depends on luck, sometimes stuff comes faster than estimated, sometimes you have to wait.
As I understand, then IF (which I doubt it) there's gonna be a much better price elsewhere, then you can still cancel your order, while it has not been dispatched.
Not very good if you want it in a few days or if you are building a rig from a scratch.
I have a GPU and this will be its upgrade, so it's ok for me.

Likewise. I'm sticking with it

Good points.
I am assuming Amazon don't take payment until the item has been, or ready to be dispatched?

No payment taken from my account so far
this is the Rs card. I'm holding out for a deal on the GTR as it's a better cooler for overclocking. lots of reviews say the Rs won't overclock that well. still an excellent price for it! shame about the delivery times.

Amd deals are showing up because their new Ryzen CPUs and Vega GPUs will send old stock through the floor. Don't buy amd anything until Ryzen launches later this month. Even if you don't need it's performance it'll make older amd stuff cheaper. This is a last ditch attempt to shift old stock!
Thanks for this , how much do you think they will drop in price ?
Ryzen will be on par with the latest Intel cpus. Current amd is actually very outdated already so it will probably come down a fair bit in price. Will be your bargain basement cpu.
Ok .. Thanks I will wait to the end of the month!

Surely we need to compare the 460 to the 1050 (non TI)?

https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_1050_Gaming_X/27.html

AKA, the 1050 is a better card for the same price.
works out at 110 delivered am i missing something ?
Shesakillerqueen1464

I think a GTX1050 is a fairer comparison than a 3 year old Geforce 700 series. The 1050 wins btw, even with less memory. But even then neither of these cards are the greatest bang for buck.
actually these cards are the greatest bang for buck. they aren't the best cards obviously but by a power to price ratio these cards comfortably come top which would fit the saying "Bang for buck" perfectly.

An RX480 for example is a minimum of twice as fast as this card but you have been able get one for less than twice this price delivered. They are therefore not really top in a price to performance ratio, especially when you factor in higher end cards frequently are offered with free recent game codes that lower end cards typically lack. It should also be considered that compared to older but faster cards that often crop up or have stock cleared when the new cards launch, they are inferior from a price/performance ratio.

These cards are mostly for light gaming and probably the bare minimum you should purchase new, and will be quickly outdated for that purpose. Which is why when I judge cards I consider whether they are really good for the money. RX 460 is mediocre at best in this sense. £110 mediocrity. RX 470 is a much better proposition and offers a considerably superior experience on modern games, well worthy of the extra money. £175 quality. As long as you are not power and size constrained of course......

shame about the reference blower otherwise a great price for performance
Sometimes you need that. I got this one because of the blower. A very small form build required it.
If you have plenty of cooling and a decent size tower go for something none reference.

I recently purchased the RX 480 Sapphire Nitro 8GB and I had to return it a few hours after, the exhaust pipes were facing directly infront of my SSD which I couldn't move, and it was reaching dangerous temps. Sometimes you gotta get a reference blower xD
I've got the reference, picked up 2nd hand. wouldn't pay this as it's loud and run hot hot hot
I had the reference RX 480 and tested it on an open test bed - it wouldn't sustain boost clock so you're losing perf. No problem with Sapphire variant. I really can't recommend the reference design.
Overclockers will happily match this with free delivery if you give them a call. Free Civ VI.

Nothing wrong with this deal. I guess the 'spend more and get a better card' brigade are out in force. Sure the 1050 is a little bit better but also costs a little bit more. 1050ti would be a much better card but its 50% more expensive. A second hand 960 is a second hand 960.

Yeah, but then by adding another £20 you could get rx 480 8GB: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sapphire-nitro-rx480-8gb-209-99-scan-2584703?p=29655250 (The deal is over now, but my point is that there is always a next level, and next moment you know you are buying GTX 1070 lol). I think including the game this is a good offer and I personally would choose RX 480 only if I could save up for 8GB version.
There's almost zero performance difference between the 480 4GB and 480 8GB except in a select few games (AC: Syndicate being one of the few exceptions). As yet, the extra 4GB RAM isn't utilised in the vast majority of titles. It's unclear if that will change or not in the future, how much impact it will have, and whether or not it'll just be badly optimised console ports that make use of the extra memory.
This coming from an 8GB owner. I'd probably pay the extra £20. But I wouldn't pay much more than that.
I mean, you are forgetting that the GDDR5 is set to 7000mhz instead of 8000mhz, right?

Check it out, its not 0% difference.

Reading comprehension not your strong suit?

I didn't claim there wasn't a difference in memory clocks. Nor did I claim there was no difference in performance. I stated that there was barely any difference in performance in the majority of games (based on findings by Gamers Nexus) and that the 8GB wasn't necessarily worth a significant amount more.

Not great value imo...
I've just built my own with i5 6600K, 16gb RAM, 550w PSU and 3gb 1060 for a lot less than this.
Overclocked to 4.8ghz this aft!
You're comparing a kit-car to a factory-made car. Of-course the kit-car will cost less, because you're not paying for labour - only parts. Cool story, anyway.
Your analogy falls over when you consider scale - they pay nothing like what we do buying individual components and paying the retail chain in between. Good examples where you can't build for the cost is the budget servers which are often posted on here and would allow good basis to upgrade into gaming machines such as dell t20 or lenovo ts140 that are bargains with cashback deals.
Thanks, but this was a metaphor rather than a case-study comparison. Appreciate the input though! PCs are way too complicated an area for someone like me, so it all helps!

Mine arrived just fitted it in, btw this is a totally no frills version of the Nitro i.e. no backplate, no leds, no dual bios, just the overclocked card, which is fine by me for a £150.
2 hrs to reinstall GTA V for some benchmarks, so just waiting.
Don't worry, I contacted scan today, they will fulfil the orders. The customer services guy said they oversold and they've had to order some more in. Should receive our orders sometime next week :)

​i use this in a xeon e5620 and it rocks everything 1080p ultra. put it in a dual core e6750 and was bottlenecked by the cpu (passmark 1500). upgraded that to core 2 quad q9400 and was partly bottle necked in gta v but xcom 2 perfect and rainbow six seige seemed fine. passmark on core 2 quad is 3000 probably similar to your i3? so think you will be fine for most things on max. i use raptr to optimise

Great analysis ..
"So this is the best RX470 in the world"

Bit like saying the Corsa VXR is the best corsa in the world, its still a corsa.

rx480 4gb beats this and it's cheaper.
The rx480 has less memory, and the memory it does have is 12.5% slower.
This matches the rx480 for clock speed.
What basis do you have to say the rx480 4gb is faster than this?
Surely you've answered that yourself in your OP?
RX470: 2048:128:32
RX480: 2304:144:32
2048/2304 = 0.888~
After the reports of being able to flash RX460 to the full 1024 cores (from 896), I wonder if anyone has had success flashing RX470 to 2304 cores though?

Still cant get behind amibos. At least its generating some £ for nintendo which hopefully they'll push into their r+d dept.
What so they can find some ways to improve the 2DS?
Gotta get past hating nintendo handhelds buddy. i'm seeing it in every 3ds/2ds forum post, its getting old just like me plying my amibo/amazon prime hate. I have a number you can call.

We have a 1st gen 3DS XL, a 2nd gen 3DS XL and about 50 games. That is hardly anti hand-held. Like Splasho I just think the 2DS is a dreadful unit is all, and the worst way and experience to play the games. The Wii U is party hand-held technically speaking. I had a Sega Gamegear for goodness sakes back in the day. I am a Nintendo fan, for me to bash one of their units, it is going to have to be pretty bad. I mean just take a look at the 2DS, its a total disaster.

perfect for 1080p and 2k gaming.
According to the latest Steam hardware survey, fewer than 0.2% of Steam users use 2048x1080 resolution, so it's an odd one to reference! 1200P is more popular, for instance (16:10 master race!).

Thats great cosminhards.
I have been researching these products all this afternoon, but am well out of my depth.
Could I ask why you chose the amd rx480 8gb over a nvidea 1060 6gb? Is it purely price and extra ram or is there more to it?
At these prices after cashback, I am not suprised you have taken the plunge.
Thank you for all of your efforts.
Sorry for not responding at the time :( not sure if it's relevant for you or not, but I chose it for 1. the much better price (if I get the cashback it's 195 vs 250); 2. more ram (now it might not make a difference but in the future it might) and 3. it will be much cheaper to get a monitor with freesync than with gsync. So basically for financial reasons. :D

Thanks very much for taking the time to respond, with such a lot of info.

God this is so misleading! Let me explain: MSI CASHBACK DOES NOT WORK WITH EVERY RETAILER!
Onto the details, in the terms and conditions, MSI states that the cashback only works if your INVOICE clearly written "20% cashback", as far as I am aware, only scan and overclockers did the msi promotion, not ebuyer, not Amazon, definitely not play asia.

Where does it say this? On the website the conditions state:

The cashback amount will be 20% back off the price paid on the qualifying MSI Graphics Card at the qualifying place of purchase as stated on the customer invoice. MSI will not issue cashback for the shipping method chosen during checkout. All cashback claimants will be sent a cheque once the process of checking has been completed. No other forms of payment will be offered back to the claimant.

and in the rebate form it states:

The cashback amount will be 20% back off the price paid on the qualifying MSI Graphics Card at the place of purchase as stated on the invoice

Why do you think this promotion is only valid for purchases from scan and overclockers?

Ok, so to follow up my previous post. While doing research for my new graphics card (now got an RX 480 8gb), I put together these notes for all 4 versions of 470 and 480 (4gb and 8gb for each). Sorry for their verbose nature, but maybe it helps someone have a bigger picture of what the MSI offer brings to the table. I tried making the lowest prices (after MSI rebate) clear by making them bold, and every paragraph represents a new graphics card/memory combination. Sorry for the poor formatting, hope it helps someone decide. But remember the purchase must be made before the end of today. £195 <- 244 MSI RX 480 8gb 244

If you compare them side by side, it states that they both have backplates. The XFX card has 3 Displayport + 1 HDMI, whereas the Sapphire has 2 Displayport + 2 HDMI. The XFX has easily detachable fans, and a 6 pin connector (Sapphire has an 8 pin connector). Sapphire card is very slightly larger.

Personally, I would opt for the Sapphire card.

EDIT It's out of stock now. The XFX card is still in stock, though.



Edited By: lindtexcellence85 on Nov 26, 2016 14:29: Out of stock
This is the Nitro,not the Nitro+. There's very little information about it.

As far as I can tell the differences are:

1236MHz clock instead of 1260MHz (2% difference)
No backplate
No LED lighting
No mode switch
Fans don't have two ball bearings?
Power connector on top rather than at the back
1cm shorter

I'm not too bothered about any of those. I'm happy with mine, good performance, and the fans switch off below 50 degrees.

The XFX is clocked 10mhz lower, not much of a difference admittedly! The XFX has a backplate whereas the Sapphire doesn't, not sure what benefit it really makes though. Next to no difference, I'd probably save the fiver

As previously mentioned this is definitely a different version to what the listing mentions backplate and seems to suggest a BIOS switch to select a factory overclock and LED button this has none of that.
Also the images for this card typically show the power connector on the rear of the unit, On this one they are placed on top
Not sure whether to keep just about to contact Scan
​I posted a link earlier in this thread of the card on the sapphire site that shows pics with the power connector on the side. Scan do seem to have manufacturer part number incorrect and does incorrectly state there is a backplate but I saw no mention of the bios switch or led fans on the scan listing??

Yes sorry what I meant is when searching online for this I typically came across reviews and website that showed the power connector on the rear and BIOS switch. I didnt realise such a version existing as this until I saw your product listing (By that time I had already ordered)

Turns out I've just checked and mine is actually a 270X so any of these cards be a massive upgrade but I'd rather pay more and be future proof!
Then consider the 1060 6gb (215 last deal) or the 1070 (370 for EVGA AIB).
The 480 8gb is not a 'future proof' card by any stretch. The first thing you'll notice isn't the VRAM, it's the lack of overall GPU power.

I would but I've got a freesync monitor

I have a R9 280x and have just bought a HP Envy 1440p monitor that supports free sync. Is this a worthwhile upgrade for full 1440p gaming on titanfall 2 etc and does freesync make a real difference? Had my eye on one of these for a while.
Looking at a performance increase of somewhere between 30-60% depending on the game: http://hwbench.com/vgas/radeon-rx-480-vs-radeon-r9-280x
I've heard pretty good things about Freesync, though it will depend on what the freesync range is and whether your card can meet it. It's typically something like 30-75, meaning you'll only see the benefit when the GPU is able to put out between 30 and 75 fps. Luckily, this card should do that quite well for most games at 1440p
Thanks very much for the helpful reply. From the other comments on here do you think it's worth paying the extra for the 8GB? I think if my monitor didn't have freesync I'd go with the 1060 but if you say it's good then I'll look at rx480s
you should instead pick up an xfx r9 fury for £250 at OC UK if you can pay the extra. It will out perform the 480 by 30-40% and it is made for 1440p. Make sure you check the card length it is massive.

Thanks again. This does seem like good advice on research. I upgraded my power supply to 600watts when got the RX280 so that seems fine and my tower is a full size Asus G10AJ. As far as I can see there should be no reason to not go with the r9 fury over the RX480 8GB in that case? Now to decide between this or the LG 4K display for my MacBook!

Excellent price for this card. Will soundly beat the 3Gb 1060.
The 1080P performance aggregates put the 8GB 480 at 99% of the performance of the 3GB 1060 here: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2867/geforce-gtx-1060-3-gb
And the 4GB 480 has slower memory than the 8GB model, too.
It's been £174 for a 4GB 480 in the past. Personally, I'd take the £35 saving and get a 470, or spend the extra £30 and get a much faster 6GB 1060.
No offence but that link you posted seems rubbish.
"GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB performance estimated based on architecture, shader count and clocks. "
And the best one:
"We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 5760x1080"

https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zotac/GeForce_GTX_1060_Mini_3_GB/29.html
https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zotac/GeForce_GTX_1060_Mini_3_GB/32.html


And that's a low budget 1060 that is reduced... The 480 doesn't OC well at all, while the 1060 does.

I wouldn't recommend any card other than the 470 at 140-150 or the 1060 6gb at 220-230.

I feel there isn't a compelling difference in between, but if you must spend 180 quid on a gfx card, get the 1060 3gb.

Think the 1060 is currently 10% ahead at the minute.


​thank you
Both good cards. Nvidia is slightly faster and uses a little less power but DX12 performance sometimes better on AMD.

AMD Can be run in cross fire so in the future you could get a second and get a performance boost. Though it's hit and miss to be honest.

Not as if you would be disappointed with either card though really.

Thinking of the same - but maybe a month or two later. Do you know of which ones would be the least hassle to install?

How would people rate this card against the GTX1060 6GB for higher resolutions? Does the extra VRAM help at all? I have a 4K screen and while I realise neither card will hit 60fps at that resolution, as I play on console too I am pretty well accustomed to 30fps (and even slightly lower) and am happy to turn off some of the enhancements like AA and AF (debateably pointless at 4K anyway).

I have both the GTX1060 and RX480 on order at Amazon through the various warehouse deals. Neither shipped yet but they will soon and I really can't afford (or need) both. The GTX1060 6GB was £187 and the RX480 (this sapphire card) was £171. At the moment I am leaning towards the 480 as it has the extra VRAM, is cheaper and slightly better condition (v good vs good) but is the GTX1060 is likely to outperform it significantly?

Is the RX480 8GB a good value buy at £171 or could I do better for similar money?

not too much of an upgrade going from a 280 to a 480 imo
I was thinking the 1070 but, for a fraction of the price less it'll be better than what my 280 can do and is futureproof for the upcoming 2 years or so.
I manage to play a few AAA games on Ultra on my R9 280 (1080p) with an i5 4690k. So it's telling what this card would pull through.
There's an XFX R9 Fury (non X, but potentially unlockable) for 249 on amazon now. I bought one (waiting to ship) on the chance that I can unlock it to a Fury X. If I can't I'll probably send back.
Don't get your hopes up i got one off OC UK recently too and it isn't a locked fury x, most of the xfx fury's cant even OC past 1050 mhz without issues mine does 1030(from 1000) and 525(from 500). Iirc the good chips are actually used for sapphires fury and those ones are often locked fury x chips.
There's a sapphire tri-x fury card on Amazon warehouse deals for 225 after the 20%off - would you think that's a better deal, if it can be unlocked, than the 250 for the new xfx fury?
The performance difference between the fury and fury x is around 7-8% and that isn't applicable for all games since sometimes the fury infact performs better than the fury x and other times the fury x is 10-15% ahead. At the end of the day if buy the
sapphire tri-x: chance of bios flashing into a fury x and its also £25 cheaper but no warranty past the 30 days given by Amazon. Also im not 100% sure on this but it probably also OC's a bit better than the xfx fury.
XFX fury:2 year warranty it also oc's pretty well but unlikely to be flashable into a fury x
Thanks for the advice!

​US prices are without tax, which they add at checkout. $240 is £195, plus 20% VAT = £234, so that isn't far off. Brexit devaluation of the GBP.

I got a used one from amazon for £180 and can say it is closer to a 1070 in terms of performance than towards a 1060. Witcher 3 was my main test and I was getting a solid 70fps+ with ultra settings and hairworks off. Theres only 2 reasons to get a 1060 over this is, 1. It consumes half the amount of power of the Fury, 2. 6GB of GDDR5 RAM over 4GB HBM, and I say this because I was using 3.5GB of it during GTA 5, which means that 4GB wont be very future proof.
Avoid any XFX cards they are awful for breaking and RMA process is a joke.

Great deal at this price. If you're a gamer on a budget look no further, as it's about 10% slower than a 1060 3gb with another gb of vram.

This is a really good deal - very tempted but can't decide if I'd rather have the 8gb for future proofing
I wouldn't worry about that. You won't use more than 4gb at 1080p and if you want to boost your resolution you should probably buy a faster GPU down the line

Doom requires 5GB+ to run at maximum settings at 1080p.

Ew PowerColor. Terrible RMA and they don’t even have a UK site. Also this model needs 8 pin power.

Its a good thing it has 8 pin power. 6 pin is not enough to deliver power to the card. I wont go into detail on this but google it, it was a big issue with the rx480 on release and the 470 is basically a 480

Haha I'm afraid I cannot take you seriously when you are using Hitman (a very heavily AMD sided game) to judge the price points for all the GPUs in the entire market. I think you're the one who's "trippin."
I tried to take you seriously to the point when you said "Hitam (a very heavily AMD sided game) WHAAAAAT so every DX12 game is AMD sided game? seriously, nvidia failed to utilize DX 12 lets blame AMD for this?
Yes Hitman!!!http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a216/wieslawg/111111.pnghttp://media.bestofmicro.com/ext/aHR0cDovL21lZGlhLmJlc3RvZm1pY3JvLmNvbS9HL1gvNjIyNjg5L29yaWdpbmFsL2JmMS1mcm90LnBuZw==/r_600x450.png

Hitman is an AMD friendly game, just like ROTR is an NVIDIA friendly game. DX12 results are split based on which game is sponsored by which card.

Also, it's not so much that AMD did DX12 better, it's that they did DX11 so badly.

DX11->12 makes AMD look "good" because their results for DX11 titles is terrible, while NVIDIA don't gain much from DX11->12 because their DX11 was good.

So yeah, let's stop throwing the idea that AMD did something 'good' here and realize just how badly they messed up in DX11.

Also, let's not forget that 99% of existing games do not support DX12 and we can look forward to at least 5 years of DX11 still being the gold standard for developers.

DX12, maybe in 3-4 years, will be 'the thing' just like DX11 took ages to ramp up developer support. Remember, it came out in 2008.

I'd take the 1060 3gb over both of these. The memory management is absolutely great on the NVIDIA cards and 3gb is plenty at 1080p.
Yeah, absolutely plenty... definitely no downsampling of textures owing to insufficient VRAM at 1080p.http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/30c8333aef195a3b1b30c440117e4a4090eb2ab37c358f423ff2bc4afd930ff0.png?w=800&h=332

​​Headroom was awesome! being a Queen fan getting the chance to visit Metropolis studio was something I will never forget. Chilling out in studio 1 listening to Queen on high end planar magnetic headphones!

The B&W p5 s2 cans were one of the biggest surprises at Headroom for me that day. Sure there was more expensive headphones on display but I was blown away with how good they were for portable cans.

As someone who uses Grado headphones every day, I was expecting great things from their high end cans. However, I was a little surprised that out of every headphone I heard that day it was the Sennheiser HD800 I fell in love with!

Comments saying "£xxx for headphones???" will be frowned upon. You get what you pay for.
Opinions on good headphones will be appreciated however comments recommending beats will be punishable by death..

If you 'get what you pay for' why are you recommending buying headsets at over 50% off, their value most be less than 50% of the value of the new ones. It's a pointless remark. All the posts here are for things that are less the normal price, so do you always get an inferior product?
And if you pay twice as much for anything is it twice as good? Obviously not


​wtf are you on about? did your brain just take a dump? try again and try to make some sense.
You get what you pay for £300 for two speakers and some wire, while I agree, its still a couple of speakers!

p5.. rotten sound?? really?? I heard the B&W p5 s2 at the headroom headphone exhibition and they sounded really bloody nice.

I haven't heard the S2 model though apparently they're an improvement. I certainly wouldn't blind buy a B&W headphone again but I'd be happy to audition them (along with the P7 and newly released P9).

Did you enjoy the Headroom exhibition? I'd love to go one year.

The discount on the Momentum over ears is a little disappointing, would be nice to replace the B&W P5 for portable use (great build and comfort but rotten sound). For home listening it's Focal Elear all the way!

This may seem like a stupid question but is the graphic card good for gaming
Chances are it will be ok for Minecraft or HL2 (old low end or old), but don't quote me on that.
If you want to play higher end games, I'd suggest you either get a desktop or start saving for a higher end laptop.
Played World of Warcraft Legion just fine for me.
MMOs tend to not be too demanding, even the recommended spec is a few years old hardware wise.
Nice of you to classify a whole genre based on a single 12 year old game.
Believe it or not there are actually MMO games using modern game engines.

I'm not into MMORPGs so things may have changed from what I've heard in the past which was that specs tended to be kept relatively low to increase potential market share.

A worthy upgrade to my ageing GTX460?
Or is it simply a case of 'save a bit longer, as cards at £130/150 etc. are so much better and this card will be out of date in 6 months'?
It's an upgrade but not really sufficient to last you as long as your GTX 460 has. I had a 460 too and it was fine with BF4 on medium but anything newer and it was a struggle especially with VRAM. I'd say look at the 4GB cards like the RX470/480 if you want an AMD card, or if the price is low, the GTX 970. Any of those would last you a good while. The RX 460 and GTX 960 are decent too, but not as good value in the long term as their performance is a good way below the others. All of those cards would allow you to G-sync/Freesync too, which is well worth it if you'll be getting a new monitor in the future.


​Thanks for the reply.

Most of those cards are £180+ which is more than twice the price of this one apart from rx 460 which I'm not really sure is better anyway.

I don't game much, and when I do it's usually on ps4. Apart from Uncharted 4 I think the last game I bought was Tomb raider... On xbox 360 oO
The only game I want now is 'Inside' before Horizon zero dawn comes out next year.
I'm planning to get an i6700k though :D but I mostly use the PC for music production, don't have much time for gaming.
So, is it worth waiting a few months for another card to get closer to the £100-120 mark which I think is realisticly my upper limit?

This is essentially a R7 265 which goes head to head with a 750 Ti and im sure you can get 750Tis for the same price brand newAmazing deal, but yeah, not worth posting on its own. Crazy deal oO

Just how good value exactly is the r9 390x? As it's not really listed in 'New' by most companies.
I've effectively reserved that one :) Bit concerned about the "cosmetic damage to item".
Haven't upgraded for many years (Radeon 5870 series at the moment) but was waiting to buy something fast but also bang for my buck :)

For example, the 480s are around the £220-£240 mark Brand New. That item was "Used" so was it worth going for it? I have time to cancel so considering :)

EDIT: So my question I guess changes to - £185 for the Used R9 390x or £230 for a new 480?



The 390x runs insanely hot and is very loud, but it's still very capable.
