These Prices are really inflated for a 1060 competitor, A couple of the cards are approaching GTX 1070 Pricing! Better off buying a RX 470 or 480 and overclocking it or a 6GB 1060 (avoid the 3GB model as your hit the VRAM limit on certain titles)

The prices on pretty much all pc gear is cranked up for 2017 the cost to buy these components is ridiculous, this has to be the worst time to buy pc parts/systems and there talking about price increases lol, on the bright side the 2nd hard market is thriving and sure to do btr should prices keep going up, can't help feeling there cutting there own throat for short term gain in profit margins.
It's pretty much gonna be which every company puts on a great deal for a component gets all the sales just like that 1070 for £300, now that deal sold a lot of cards and made some money, when those offers come up they will be grabbed people need to be patient more so now than ever before, and we need people posting deals on this site.

As for me I'm not buying anything until these prices come back down to earth, no ryzen, intel, anything I'm sitting with 3 builds lol my old phenom II 555 (unlocked to 4 cores) with ddr 3 1680mhz (7-8-7-20) is still going strong, my z97 asus pro is harldy use and now runs a large 80+ tb nas and has been very under utilized simply because I bought a much smaller system in my z170i asus gaming pro, sm951 nvme, evga gtx 1060 sc (6gb).

I may not have went the kabby lake route but if these prices had been btr I would already be building a new ryzen system but the parts I want are just to overpriced and I wont settle for something else those b350 motherboards are also overpriced for what they are, so much for ryzen being cheaper turns out they just match intel tier for tier B vs H & X vs Z as such im under no doubt both intel and amd are loosing sales.

I just don't see who this card is aimed at and why would you buy it over a 470/480 1060 if you were looking to upgrade from an older card
its current draw is almost twice that of a 1060..for what?
Increased clock speeds, unlocked compute units.

Still a good deal, but I can't see any reason to buy this if you already own an RX 470/480.
This "deal" is hilarious considering gtx 1070 deal was 299 with 2 games
didn't they increase the memory clocks?
Becoz they cant , they're already stretching the power limits/heat limits and it allows the 6xx cards to have faster gddr5x or HBM2(less likely).
BUT hey the fans are more in sync than they have ever been before

Aria have this card on their daily deals at £144 + postage.
Only a handful in stock so didn't post as a separate deal.
They're banned (suspended?) on here anyway. No idea why, maybe someone else knows?
I didn't realise that. I've used them a few times without any issues.
Perhaps the daily deals with there very limited numbers were a contributing factor?
There's nothing wrong with them as far as I'm concerned, either.

I didn't even know they were banned/suspended until I tried to post a comment with a link to their site sometime in the past few days and it got edited by a mod. If I had to guess, I'd say they're probably banned for something petty like self promotion, as opposed to anything serious like not being legit.

Increase power limit to +50% in driver settings, solves power throttling issues.
Did you do this based on any info? Have sent my first one back trying to decide if a replacement would be a waste of time if I end up with the same issue.

Based on experience with previous AMD cards including the RX 480, the 480 is capped at around 150W (overclocked cards are higher) to meet their marketing specs, if you increase the power limit the card can pull way more (IIRC spike above 200W) than 150W in certain conditions.

With the power limit at default 0% the card can throttle/stutter/BSOD if the GPU hits the max TDP specified in the card BIOS, without being able to pull additional power to the GPU above 150W-180W, FPS hits a ceiling even if you continue to increase the GPU clocks.

The fact that the GTX 1070 is rated @150W and the GTX 1080 at only 180W (with room to spare in regards to power margins) gives you an idea of just how far behind AMD is compared to nVidia with their performance/power efficiency.

I've built a rig with a Sapphire RX 480 Nitro (factory overclocked), the card crashes in BF1 at times (hard system reset), increasing the power limit all the way to the max solved that issue.

I like the RX 480 despite the high power draw relative to performance, if I were you I'd just get a full refund if possible, then buy a card with different brand on another store (return it if you still have issues) or possibly a cheap GTX 1060 instead.

That's the thing with overclockers. They bait you in with their prices and then slap expensive delivery on top. No other computer sales website has such expensive delivery.
lol, i have a lot **** experience with free postings companys, like last week i order some parts for water cooling loop, and grt only half order, dont get any email about missing order, they just dispatched.. And i wait for it over week.. Other company same this week i order that missing parts what i need, after 3days get email my order ready to ship..lol
So i better go overclockers and pay extra for SUPER FAST DELIVERY, than wait fck know now long.

So when did you start working for Overclockers? Recently or a while ago? ;)
Anecdotally, pretty much all sites are very efficient with delivery when you pay extra. Also some sites free delivery is flawless, not to mention Amazon Prime, Prime Now, etc
Got the 4gb version along with the g4560 chip and very happy but with Doom i cant cap the frame rate in vulkan mode so you get screen tearing :(

Vsync made the game far too laggy and open gl mode while capped at 74fps to allow freesync to work has crashed a fair few times while other games have been fine...Might be just me as I'm new to pc gaming.

Dont recommend flubit. Just got sent an used cpu. Overclockers are great.go the 4gb version delivered yesterday and it ia perfect. Be careful with this model as I had from awd it and it was faulty.


I know what you mean, them and Fireworks Direct messed me about for a couple of MONTHS when my Logitech Z506s died after a couple of hours of use so I'll find it hard to trust then again :|
£199.99 now so expired
most of the review FPS I have seen have the AMD 480 ahead of the 1060
Not super hot, but pretty hot.

If you wait until early April, the RX500 series re-spin will be out with rumours of it being more efficient and slight higher clocks.

With recent driver improvements they're on par with a 1060 6Gb, uses more power mind.

They have sorted out the heat problem with a bios upgrade.
This is a good deal but (there's always a but) with the 580 due within the next 2 months, this 480 is a hard sell, especially if the 8GB 580 does indeed come in at rumoured prices of £180 and with lower power and heat as well.

The 8gb Gigabyte model is £80+ more, or a ASUS 8GB for £30 more.
Where's this ASUS GPU?

Soon will pair something new with my old timer Q9550 :D

I only replaced mine about a month or two ago, stunning chip given it's about ten years old!


I know, been runing it now just for over a year swaped/oc'd from e8500, just for day to day basics was no point doing new build. Done some little up's for old timer nd its good to go another decade :D

I tried Xeon equivalent E5440 with GTX 1050 (non Ti card), and E5440 would bottleneck the card in Fallout 4. The Witcher 3, GTA V and so on. So RX 480 is total overkill. IMO GTX 750TI, RX460, maybe GTX 950 is best to pair with that CPU.
Cool chip though, cheapest on ebay at the moment - £35, I recently bought i5 3470 for £50, lol.


Well im with u about overkilling with 480, was thinking not less then 470 or 1050ti. I need mainly for 1080p so lover then that its like wast of money. Had 460 on my mind but would be waste aswell :) will see :)

The Asus RX 480 8GB is on Scan for £174.98 with the DOOM game. I'm thinking of getting it but everyone is saying this card is loud and faulty.
I have RX 480 8GB XFX version and before I made my mind up I was worried same like you, as many users were complaining about the noise level and so on. But it really depends on your PC case, resolution you want to game, etc.
Maybe cards with earlier BIOS versions had some serious issues but now having the card I can't say anything bad about it, so far I would even say that it is a best GPU I ever had. I play in 1080p, my PC is without a window and literally next to me and when it comes to the noise I'll hear my PSU over the GPU.
I'm talking about the ASUS cards. They appear to be very loud and run hot.
I know pal, my point was that it is probably the same story for all makes of RX 480, but if you look on reviews, also note the date when they've been posted - most of the negative ones will be for the very early releases of the specific card.
I'm not your pal, buddy. I'm going by what people have commented on hotukdeals from buying this card. If you actually bothered to read the comments X)

You would also have to rely on developers coding efficiently enough to utilise the two gpus inside the pro duo.
This is primarily aimed at developers, it's not good as a gaming card and never has been.

I would definitely go for Nvidia GTX 1080 TI for the same money.
I believe a 1080ti will be the same or beat this in all scenarios for the same/ similar price. Also a 1080ti power consumption is much lower and lower heat output.

The card in this "deal" is garbage compared to a 1060, which i admit is pricier than the rx480, but its beaten by the low end of Nvidia's line up.
This is just pure misinformation. The 1060 and 480 now tie on average in DX11 and the 1060 loses by 6+% in DX12 titles:http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/73945-gtx-1060-vs-rx-480-updated-review-23.htmlhttp://images.hardwarecanucks.com/image//skymtl/GPU/GTX-1060-UPDATE/GTX-1060-UPDATE-101.jpg
That's not quite accurate. Firstly, that's the only source for the 480 now matching/beating the 1060 - a similar article a few weeks later had the 480 still slightly behind the 1060, so we can take it that the 480 has closed a lot of the gap, but relying on a single source to say the 480 is now faster is a bit... optimistic, shall we say?

Except... notice what CPU those tests are using. I doubt many gamers pair a £150 card with a £300+ i7 CPU, which is what you'd need to get those results. If you can find comparisons of the 480 and 1060 using i5s and i3s, you can see how the 1060 doesn't drop in performance as much as the 480 does when paired with a weaker CPU. So, while it's fair to say that the 480 has closed the gap on i7 systems, it's wrong of you to assume that carries across to all systems ("pure misinformation", one might say ;)).

Here, don't take my word for it:
Eurogamer
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare runs faster on AMD's RX 480, compared to its Nvidia rival, the GTX 1060. It's an advantage that plays out consistently, as you can see in our Infinite Warfare PC performance analysis. But here's the thing: running these GPUs with an i7 - as we did above - essentially offers something akin to a bottomless pit of CPU power, and the balance of power between the green and red teams changes rapidly when you pair each GPU with a less capable processor, like the Pentium G4560 we're reviewing here.

And you can see that in the shot below, taken mere seconds later. As soon as the action intensifies, the RX 480 suddenly loses a lot of performance. Minimum frame-rate actually hits 45fps in our tests - 20fps lower than the GTX 1060. And that's important when choosing a graphics card to pair with a less capable CPU. AMD's DirectX 11 driver lacks multi-threading capabilities and is significantly less optimal than Nvidia's, meaning that when the CPU is taxed, certain titles lost a lot of performance (and we stress, not all games exhibit the issue, but you have no guarantee which titles will be affected and which are fine).

And if you're looking at putting together a Steam Machine, or using Linux, the 1060 clearly annihilates the 480, of course.

All that said, £156 is a great price for the 4GB 480. It's a budget card, and that 4GB may well be exhausted this year, but it's going to be an excellent purchase for someone with a decent CPU who only uses Windows and has a fairly strict £150 budget. In that case, it's definitely better value for money than the £210 6GB 1060.
bouncy99
we shall see.
Yep, I think by the time the R5s are released they could be a very good choice. Bugs will likely be ironed out and they should offer very good price/performance ratio. I'd imagine with slightly higher clocks and a bit of optimisation they will match similarly priced Intel chips in gaming but blow them out of the water for anything multithreaded. I plan to get an R5 for my next build (think 6 core may be the sweet spot) *if* they iron out the issues. But new architectures usually have some teething problems. Personally, I'd rather support the underdog, provided I get best price/performance ratio I can within my budget, as I think it's better for the industry.

and currently, amd can beat a 1070 with what? or a 1080 with what? amd cards are currently garbage. lets see what vega brings.
Completely agree...I'm no AMD fanboi, but your comment was incorrect re the 1060 vs 480. AMD have been far too late to market with Vega and have surrendered the high end to Nvidia for a whole generation...but needs must. They invested so much in Ryzen and they have such a limited budget compared to Nvidia and Intel and fight on two fronts. We all should pray they do well with both Ryzen and Vega to introduce healthy competition. Vega, with HBM2 and biggest redesign since the original GCN (apparently) could be a big step forward for AMD but I really feel they can't simply be matching the 10 series of Nvidia, they have to be beating them 15-20% and be competitive with Volta at a lower price point.
Totally agree, unfortunately it appears ryzen may be a flop in gaming performance, according to some early reports. They are blaming a lack of optimisation for their product, so we shall see.

I wouldn't worry, the processor is slower than some i5's and the reviews of the pc were pretty poor in general. You get get better stuff on ebay for lower prices, even if you have to pop a bit extra ram in.

Why so cold!? I'm pretty sure the Strix is up there with the GTR in terms of the pcb.
It may be the best 480 8gb out there, but that's the problem. The 480s do NOT overclock very well.https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/RX_480_STRIX_OC/23.htmlhttps://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/RX_480_STRIX_OC/26.html
OCing the Strix results in less than reference 1060 6gb OC.
Once you start adding a few quid to the cost of a 480, it's value quickly goes down. You can't push the card, so why have an exotic cooling solution?
I've seen different reviewers get much better overclocks out of the RX 480. It may be true you can't get a whole lot more out of it, but take the gigabyte rx480 for example and look at the temperatures of that even with a custom fan curve before overclocking.
Care to provide a link? I've not seen anything over 8% in game performance. I've seen a 11% theoretical OC, but it never translates to game performance (from what I've seen).

There you go, i've seen higher than this as well :)https://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2016/11/24/sapphire-rx-480-nitro-oc-4gb-and-8gb/11
I mean, do you refuse to actually look before posting?
I mentioned that I've seen 11% theoretical OC (These guys say 12% theoretical OC).
But did you actually look at the benchmarks provided?
There are 2 cards here tested over 2 games!
Sapphire and Asus cards.
Sapphire goes from 60/55 + 48/44 = 9% (With HUGE rounding errors).
ASUS goes from 53/51 + 42/39 = 5% (with HUGE rounding errors).
So, are you seriously willing to contest this as 'higher than 8%' with the amount of rounding error? These are whole numbers being used, and over 2 games. Seems almost *perfectly* aligned with what I've said (8% games, 11% theoretical).
The conclusion page just echoes my words:
Quote
"the 8GB card improved by between seven and 11 percent"
For both cards, the first step in overclocking was to whack the power limit to 150 percent (the highest available setting) to reduce the potential for bottlenecking.
For the 8GB card, the core was stable up to 1,422MHz, but only after we also increased the voltage by 100mV. The memory was also happy with a small bump to 2.1GHz (8.4Gbps effective). These are overclocks of six and five percent respectively, although 1,422MHz compared to reference speeds is 12 percent higher – not bad.
As for the 4GB card, the core this time around was stable at 1,426MHz, an increase of 120MHz or 9 percent (13 percent over reference) – again, 100mV more was needed to hit this. The memory here managed 1.925GHz (7.7Gbps effective), a 10 percent increase.
At these speeds, and with the additional power headroom and voltage, system power consumption rose to a hefty 412W – this result was the same for both the 8GB and 4GB cards.
(12% HIGHER THAN REFERENCE) No where in that text does it say theoretical and last time I heard 12% is more than 11% X). Besides not everyone buys graphics cards just for games... X)

I mean, again, you made an assumption that a 12.3% mhz bump will mean 12.3% theoretical benchmark improvement.

It doesn't, look at your own source... 6094/5633=8.1% for the Sapphire and 5981/5566=7.4% for the ASUS in theoretical benchmark improvements.

Do... You get my point yet?

Why so cold!? I'm pretty sure the Strix is up there with the GTR in terms of the pcb.
It may be the best 480 8gb out there, but that's the problem. The 480s do NOT overclock very well.https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/RX_480_STRIX_OC/23.htmlhttps://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/RX_480_STRIX_OC/26.html
OCing the Strix results in less than reference 1060 6gb OC.
Once you start adding a few quid to the cost of a 480, it's value quickly goes down. You can't push the card, so why have an exotic cooling solution?
I've seen different reviewers get much better overclocks out of the RX 480. It may be true you can't get a whole lot more out of it, but take the gigabyte rx480 for example and look at the temperatures of that even with a custom fan curve before overclocking.

Its as simple as this, if you don't care about backplates and RGB lighting the get the dual, but if you want those things for your specific build you have to pay £30 extra. Some people will happily pay for those features.
Exactly, the Asus Dual OC would look terrible in my build X).


i bought the 4gb dual for £150 and can confirm its not a looker! But it should do the job until AMD release their top end cards (need it for freesync)

How does this compare to my R9 280x? Is there a ranking table somewhere?


The toms hardware gpu ranking chart is quite helpful

Essentially if you upgrade up less than 3 steps you probably won't notice much of a difference

Thanks. Any idea on what would be a good value upgrade? Do I even need one? I'm running a 1080p monitor and sometimes stream to the Tv.

Apart from that you're absolutely correct it's a matter of overclocking, sometimes 4gb vs 8gb, cooling method and fans and finally aesthetics
The basic gpu itself is always the same. And amd or nvidia don't let that aspect be changed at all
Thanks guys, I didn't know they all were kind of the same thing just with a few changes. Is there a big difference between 4GB and 8GB when we're talking about graphic cards? ie, if the price difference is too much, is it really worth it?
A single 480 isn't powerful enough to run bells and whistles at 4k, and I'm guessing you're not thinking of xfiring (which has its own issues but really does need the 8gb cards).
At 1080p you won't notice any difference between them, I'd save £40 and get the 4gb.

More about choosing VRAM here >

4GB of VRAM is more than enough for most video cards today, even at 4K. ... This test has shown that 8GB of VRAM is pretty useless right now, there's just no need. Sure, NVIDIA has a video card with 12GB of VRAM in the Titan X, and 6GB of VRAM on its new GTX 980 Ti, but most of the time it's not needed, even at 4K.13 Jun 2015
How much VRAM do you really need at 1080p, 1440p and 4K?

I was one of the ones who got a bad 8gb version of this card, I returned mine to CCL and they confirmed the fault.

They offered me a replacement or refund, I decided to give it another chance and i'm glad i did, everything is working great this time, tested with multiple games and benchmark programs, this card is considerably quieter than my old Evga GTX 750ti SC, but I have nothing else to compare it with so I don't know if that's saying much, it certainly doesn't bother me.

If anyone is looking for some idea of performance, I have been playing doom on ultra settings at 1440p and getting an average of 85fps (make sure you change the API to Vulkan in the settings as it adds about 30fps to the performance)

At 1080p on ultra settings i'm getting around 155fps.

Edited By: sjb07 on Mar 11, 2017 01:19: *
anyone recommend something similar to this please?
my old card is really struggling to play battlefront
Likely was a bad batch,that lot.
The only reason I avoided asus cards on thr rx 480 is no back plate, high pcb temps comparatively..
I would point a case fan at the back of that card to get a really long life out of it.
Working fine for my son for the last three days so hopefully the dodgy reports from the other thread were for a bad batch of the 8gb versions.

Currently running Doom on Ultra at about 120fps (@1080p). GPU maxed at 100% but fans only at about 55% of max speed and while you can hear them, I can certainly say that my old Radeon 7870 was much hotter and noisier than this card. In normal (non-gaming) use the fans hardly ever even spin up so it's basically silent.
Up to £164.99 :(

Yeah I think there's a reason these are cheap, I ordered one but it was faulty, it would play on low settings but as soon as I turned up the detail in each of my games the card crashed to a solid colour screen in under a minute. Returned the card, they agreed it was faulty, sent me another. Does exactly the same thing. Can't even get 2 minutes into the heaven4.0 benchmark (which isn't exactly demanding anymore) at 1600x900 preset.
And yes I tried both cards with several drivers, different pci-e cables, and even in another machine.
After getting 2 faulty in a row I'm guessing there's a high fault rate with these cards.
That's bad luck, my first card was the same, but thankfully my replacement is working great, I've ran it through its paces on a lot of games and benchmark programs.

I'm getting 85fps on ultra settings on Doom @ 1440p, 155fps @ 1080p, using the Vulkan API.

I would ask them to test a 3rd card before sending it out if you are considering giving them another chance, as it's a great card for the money that will only get better as more games start using DX12 & Vulkan.

Good price, saw it for the same yesterday at Aria PC but couldnt post it :p


sorry I'm new to this site ,but why not?
The only card on that list that is going to offer a large amount of difference is the 7970/R9 280 (maybe the GTX 680), and they both need an 8+6 pin power connector and draw at least a couple of hundred watts under load. Again that's not really helping someone who wants to plonk this in a Dell Inspiron/ HP Pavilion/Zoostorm etc.. basic tower with a 300-400W PSU, even when you can convert the spare molex plugs to the correct connectors, it would probably just end up killing the PSU.

So yeah, someone looking for a cheap card to play games that requires no extra upgrades and doesn't want to spend £140 on the RX 470, you have pretty much two options this or for 20% more cost the cheapest Geforce GTX 1050, which is about 15% faster at best.

I personally would suggest considering a used card in this price range rather than buying the 460.
It's a very week card and if you can stump up a bit more for the 470, or wait, or buy used... It would be a better investment.
I see where you are coming from, but the cheapest RX 470 is £139.98 which is 67% more expensive that this card so it's not really a comparison.
As for second hand, yes, in theory second hand is fine but not everyone can buy second hand as there are not 'xx amount in stock' they are one off's generally. If you were shopping second hand in this price range I am not sure what you can get that is significantly faster that doesn't require a decent PSU with a PCI-E 6-pin connector, so you might end up have to buy another PSU, further adding to the costs.
If someone likes to play computer games, I simply can't recommend this card.
If you want a card that doesn't require a decent PSU or a PCI-E 6 pin, then I would point you toward the 750 ti 950/1050 Geforce card. Geforce is much better suited for low end CPUs and DX11 gaming.
Anyway, if you are stuck without a 6 pin PCI, then that's another problem.
I simply can't suggest this card to anyone who isn't stuck with that situation, I can't recommend the 750 ti, 950, 1050 or 460. They don't even handle the current generation's games at 60 fps 1080 reasonable graphics.
(I'd suggest the 750 Ti shouldn't be in the same discussion)
The RX460 has similar performance to the HD 7870/R9 270/R7 370 and the GTX 660 Ti (and the Xbox One and the PS4), so games are going to be built around its capabilities for a while, but it isn't the most powerful card around. The RX470 appears to be a significant step up (3 tiers in the GPU hierarchy) for not that much more.
Talking about secondhand graphics cards, I thought I'd mention these oldies from Cex (ebay is often overpriced). They will use more electricity, will run out of support earlier and may still not be cheap enough to buy :) (the GTX 580 has the best bang for the buck, but is probably too old) :Nvidia Geforce GTX 770 2GB (£87.50)Nvidia GeForce Kepler GTX 680 2GB (£92.50)ATI Radeon HD 7970 DD XT2 3GB(£97.50)ATI Radeon Tahiti XT HD 7970 3GB(£97.50)Nvidia GeForce Fermi GTX 580 1.5GB (£47.50)ATI Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB (£67.50)ATI Radeon R9 280 3GB DX 11 (£77.50)ATI Radeon HD 7950 3GD5 3GB (£77.50)Nvidia GeForce Kepler GTX 670 2GB (£77.50)CeX offer a 24-month warranty* (on all items purchased on or after 14th Nov 2015) on all products excluding consumables
Power requirements need to be bourne in mind with these older, more demanding cards. Molex hard-drive power cables can be converted to PCI-E 6 pin connectors.

Great follow up post, that was my thoughts if I wasn't lazy ;-)

Now, I do want to point out something: The xbox and PS4 are going through a weird phase where they are both offering upgrades to their consoles. It may not be the 'defacto' specs to publish for, so aiming for a 460 as your target may leave you in an awkward position where developers are planning around the new console specs (they aren't really 'new') but I think you know what i mean.

I simply can't suggest this card to anyone who isn't stuck with that situation, I can't recommend the 750 ti, 950, 1050 or 460. They don't even handle the current generation's games at 60 fps 1080 reasonable graphics.
(I'd suggest the 750 Ti shouldn't be in the same discussion)

The RX460 has similar performance to the HD 7870/R9 270/R7 370 and the GTX 660 Ti (and the Xbox One and the PS4), so games are going to be built around its capabilities for a while, but it isn't the most powerful card around. The RX470 appears to be a significant step up (3 tiers in the GPU hierarchy) for not that much more.

Talking about secondhand graphics cards, I thought I'd mention these oldies from Cex (ebay is often overpriced). They will use more electricity, will run out of support earlier and may still not be cheap enough to buy :) (the GTX 580 has the best bang for the buck, but is probably too old) :

Nvidia Geforce GTX 770 2GB (£87.50)
Nvidia GeForce Kepler GTX 680 2GB (£92.50)
ATI Radeon HD 7970 DD XT2 3GB(£97.50)
ATI Radeon Tahiti XT HD 7970 3GB(£97.50)

Nvidia GeForce Fermi GTX 580 1.5GB (£47.50)
ATI Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB (£67.50)
ATI Radeon R9 280 3GB DX 11 (£77.50)
ATI Radeon HD 7950 3GD5 3GB (£77.50)
Nvidia GeForce Kepler GTX 670 2GB (£77.50)

CeX offer a 24-month warranty* (on all items purchased on or after 14th Nov 2015) on all products excluding consumables

Power requirements need to be bourne in mind with these older, more demanding cards. Molex hard-drive power cables can be converted to PCI-E 6 pin connectors.

I personally would suggest considering a used card in this price range rather than buying the 460.
It's a very week card and if you can stump up a bit more for the 470, or wait, or buy used... It would be a better investment.
I see where you are coming from, but the cheapest RX 470 is £139.98 which is 67% more expensive that this card so it's not really a comparison.
As for second hand, yes, in theory second hand is fine but not everyone can buy second hand as there are not 'xx amount in stock' they are one off's generally. If you were shopping second hand in this price range I am not sure what you can get that is significantly faster that doesn't require a decent PSU with a PCI-E 6-pin connector, so you might end up have to buy another PSU, further adding to the costs.

If someone likes to play computer games, I simply can't recommend this card.

Great deal. Personally I would gamble and wait to see if the 400 series cards go cheap once the 500 series is out, but that's just me being tight
That seems like a hell of a good price considering the price of some of the RX 460's. Very tempted for a serious upgrade from my aging 6850!
This 470 also comes with a backplate (according to the pictures on newegg) unlike a lot of the other deals around.
Heat! If your after a 480...Asus Radeon DUAL RX 480 4GB is only £15 more.

Edit The 480 seems to have increased by £4 :(

Expect to see the prices falling as April approaches, the replacement RX 560, 570 and 580's will be out then. :)
Heat for the current best price however,
rx 560 is basically an overclocked rx 460

I know, hence why I mentioned them. Same Polaris based GPU, some tweaks to clocks and RAM speed. The comment was intended to explain why the price is falling. ;)

I wouldn't bother with this, either buy the 2gb version and save yourself £20 or get a 1050 for around this price, if not less.

If you shop around, the 8gb version of the rx480 is around 20-30 quid more, may be worth it for memory hungry apps.

A quick spoiler though, the RX460 generally scores a little over the 750Ti - making it a strong contender in the price bracket

I have used the oc feature but it just makes the card louder with very little fps benefit . I run my games at 1080p Doom on ultra vulkan api. Gta v on a mix of very high/ultra. Borderlands 2 maxed out and Rise of the tomb raider on high. getting over 60 fps most of the time with few drops below that.
wermonk
I finally got mine on wednesday. So far everything seems fine.(besides a weird pink cast to the screen when I initially installed the drivers this went away went I rebooted my pc). So far I have played a few hours of GTA V and a few hours of Rise of the tomb raider fallout 4 and Borderlands 2 with no problems. Doom on the other hand was a bit of a problem it would crash on startup but a reinstall fixed that. I have found Steam in home streaming is being a bit picky with the games it will work with. On My 1050ti all my games worked via in home streaming but with the rx480 some just won't play nice.
Thank you very much for the good news! May I just ask what settings you are running these games? And also if you are using the OC feature and overflocking the card?

I have just spoken to them. They told me due to the bad weather yesterday items will not be shipped till early next week. Make of that what you will.

I knew it, they sent me a email stating because of weather conditions its delayed, what the hell, cancelling my order and ordering with Overclockers, they state it will be delivered tomorrow if i order within the next 1 hour., its £10 more but you get Doom 2016 anyway.

I think the quality of the processor isn't great. For the price you're looking at you can easily get a prebuilt PC with either a fx processor or an i3 with a moderate gpu, both will easily outshine the individual graphics and CPU aspects of the a10.
Agree completely, i built an all new ground up PC using an A10-7850K.... it replaced a 1st Gen i7 and even with double the ram ( 16gb ) and an RX390 with 4Gb DDR5 it runs crap - its slow to encode video, it trips over stuff if im running more than 3 things at once, its HOT as hell even though ive got a wraith on it for cooling - the problem is the FX chips run hotter than the A10 - wait for the Rysen and hope its better or do the Intel route and play safe, expensive, but SAFE!
samfa
Thanks for the reply. I was looking for a pre-built solution really as I'm too lazy to build my own. Do you know when Rysen is out?


it's not difficult to build your own
didn't even look at the spec because that is one terrible looking case, case is about £5 retail but looks like something from the 90s
I'd expect something better for this price, literally just went to the first site that came to the top of my head and found a PC much cheaper with more ram, same performance CPU, and only very slightly slower GPU. for £170 less, just stick a SSD inside and you've saved yourself over a £100. That's just a quick search, you spend a bit longer you can find much better deals.

This card is quieter than my old Evga GTX 750ti SC, but I have nothing else to compare it with so I don't know if that's saying much, the noise certainly doesn't bother me.

If anyone is looking for some idea of performance, I have been playing doom on ultra settings at 1440p and getting an average of 85fps (make sure you change the API to Vulkan in the settings as it adds about 30fps to the performance)

At 1080p with ultra setting i'm getting around 155fps.

:)

I got my replacement card today from CCL, I'm happy to report that it is working perfectly in the 3 or 4 games I've tested at 1080p and 1440p.

It also passed a load of tests on 3d mark.

Very pleased so far.

AWD also processed my return and refund quite promptly. No complaints at their level of service - would happily use again.
Frustrating that Asus pushed out a bad batch - must be a costly and time consuming process for the suppliers to manage these returns. I wonder whether Asus recognise this in any way?
Funnily enough my previous forays away from Nvidia have ended badly!
So now what to do? Wait for good 1060/1070 prices? How long before we start to see meaningful price drops, if at all?
When have you returned yours ? I did on Monday but still waiting hopefully everything ok. I am thinking to buy something really cheap maybe used one to keep up until rx580 or vega arrives or 1070 go below £300. I really just need a card to play Fallout 4 now.

I posted mine at about lunchtime on Monday and the refund landed mid-morning today.

Given that it was a second class return it is quite plausible that yours will land tomorrow.
I was informed today that the card I returned was indeed faulty, they offered me a full refund or said they could next day ship a replacement card, I decided to give it another chance as I'm happy with the price and performance this card should provide so hopefully I don't get another dodgy one or it might put me off ASUS for life...
So I went over to a friend's house and tested my rx480 4GB from awd-it on his AsRock 170 pro4s and everything was fine. We played VR and the card handled it fine, there was no overheating/noise/lag. Played CS on max settings and Ranbow Six siege as well. Both ran fine, card never crashed. Max temp was 67 C. I never used the OC feature just ran the card at the default 1300 speed. So either I didn't stress test it enough, or the 4GB models were OK with this batch

Im trying to decide between this card and GTX 1060 (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/msi-geforce-gtx-1060-oc-6gb-209-98-novatech-2614550).
Which one do you think is better for 1440p 60hz monitor (Dell U2515H)? I use it for casual gaming.

I'm in the same position - will be hanging onto the card for a good few years so would like to future proof as much as possible. If I could save a bit of cash and not really notice any performance difference then I'd go for this card, but still thinking 'well it's only another £20 for a 1060'.

This card does not have the power to make use of 8GB.

2 things linger in the back of my mind though.

Firstly the improved performance in Vulkan / DX12, perhaps it's capable of using just over 4GB in these circumstances, so dar it's looking unlikely.

The other is that AMD always improve their products, or release them not to their fullest potential, mostly it's the former. AMD can always suprise, but ultimately 8GB on a RX 470 is probably pushing it a little.

Edited By: eiamhere69 on Feb 16, 2017 09:59: *
I have the 470 8Gb Nitro + (hi-speed VRAM version). No idea if I can ever get the most out of the 8gb that is there, but when I bought my 7870LE 2Gb, nothing used 2Gb, so who knows. There are games using over 4Gb at the moment if 4Gb is available.
jameshothothot
a 470 8gn probably better long run than 480 4gb? i have 470 4gb and the difference in fps oj benchmarks is like 42 fps 470 44 480. but 8gb will get you larger textures in future? hot from me. i paid 150 for 470 4gb


Really does 8gb matter? Most demanding games at present doesn't need 4gb at 1080p. And if you're planning to play at 4K, should you be relying on this card?

Card quality is often linked to the amount of memory it can realistically need.

Just think the Gtx 970 is 3.5gb and it runs the current best at ultra.
For a 470 the price is excellent not seen a cheaper 8GB part anywhere but why are other sites selling this card as a 4GB card based on the part code? That aside I'd pay the extra for a 480 if I was to go for an AMD card.
Just to confirm this IS the sneaky model. 8GB of slower ram. Not a huge difference, but the fact the have this alongside the other is pretty bad

Just ignore captain sarcasm, he's never going to post the link but he will keep acting like an aggressive keyboard warrior.
Thank you for joining the conversation, you should probably re-read what you typed.
You are a time-waster. And very,very boring to boot. Why not do something else instead ?

Is the best deal for the RX480's for the next couple of weeks? I was thinking of getting this but I only have a 500W psu so perhaps I should go for the RX470 version of this card which is £180 on amazon.
Oh look, another car-crash GPU thread.

It's like all the stupid on the internet condenses on HUKD.

I'm trying to work out if this would be a worthwhile upgrade from an R9 380 4gb model. Any ideas?
depends if you can sell your current card. It's around a 70% performance boost but personally at 1080p i wouldnt bother with an upgrade until Vega by that point your VRAM at 4 gb might be limiting and an upgrade is much more worthwhile.


70%!??

I had one of these and I always warn people about the awful coil whine that these have... they absolutely scream
no they dont. i have had mine for a few weeks and not a single whine.


Well my experience was completely different

It has been cheaper many times, it's alsi been this price gor quote a while (I've been checking).

As usysl Amazon prices occasionally fluctuate, it's been this price most of the time.

Unless you need it's compute performance and can accept it's power draw, there are better cards. (This does tend to pull away from an rx 480 the higher the resolution goes)

Personally I'd say this is the correct price for it, possibly arguing it should be cheaper still, given the current market.
not good for electricity bills as it can pull all the way up to 290w on full load

I think it has been cheaper than this before, if it was the Fury X at this price then maybe but i wouldn't say this is a particularly good deal
I did see a different version, (the XFX ones) going for £239.99 on overclockers, but they sold out within a day at that price was pretty funny to see them go that quick.

These were also £250 on OCuk for several months with free delivery. Still a reasonable deal but has been cheaper

How does this compare to 1050Ti 4GB? Since that's similarly priced
It blows the 1050Ti away as far as I'm aware.
There was 44 available when I posted the deal lol
Rx 480 is miles ahead, rx 480 = gtx 980 performance ish, gtx 1050Ti = gtx 960 performance

The 1050ti is a low power draw card ideal for low power desktops or laptops. The rx 480 is miles ahead in every department.
Might be worth the extra £14 for a brand new one, depends how tight your budget it i guess.

Rubbish cooler, but if you can live with it, it's worth the money, best card in this price range.
Once again, blower coolers are superior in SFF builds. Unless you mean it's rubbish for a blower, in which case I'll have to take your word for it.
phenooo
Would have bought this but they didn't include a DVI port? The cooler is ideal because of mini itx
Fairly sure you could get a DP to DVI adaptor on the cheap. Surely better to have more of the more advanced ports?
You're doing it wrong then. https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/for-the-love-of-blowers-or-would-it-be-quieter-to-go-with-a-blower-in-a-sff.711/
I bought a Sapphire Nitro RX 480 but I had to return it because it was blowing hot air onto my HDD and SSD, and I can't move either of them around. The SSD was reaching up 56 degrees, and I'm pretty certain that's a dangerous temp to have. The blower type fan design doesn't exhaust the hot air inwards which is why it's ideal in smaller cases.
56c is no where near dangerous for an SSD, they are made to operate up to and beyond 70c. Heck even the bare m.2 drives don't throttle until they hit circa 90c


You're not wrong, but there is absolutely no reason why your SSD should be above 40C.

Getting back on topic however, I received my RX 480 yesterday and I'm really impressed with the performance at 1440p.
Few 1 star reviews on google (maps) for delivery being slow, warranty claims and DOA / RMA poor service. Hope you get a good one and don't need to return it!

Pretty much why I bought this for my SFF case too. It exhausts all/most of the hot air straight out of the back, rather than back out into your system. My SFF case has no internal fans other than the one on the GPU and CPU cooler so this does the job!

Go buy a card with an open air cooler and see how that works out for you with your CPU, motherboard, HDD and SSD temps in a SFF build. Spoilers: I was doing it wrong and that's how I now know I'm not doing it wrong.

Mine arrived today from France with a simple postage label on the actual box (NO padding or anything to protect it during shipping) , The box was also free to open with no seal on it. This actually only happens as far as I can tell from Amazon.fr Hope it works ok when I install it. Looks great though.
