what a beaut

hot. got this from amazon for same price. runs everything 1080p max on 6 pin power connector.

Lovely price for a very capable card. Pair it with a £90 freesync monitor and it'll eat alive all games at 1080 resolution

Thoughts on pairing this with an i3?

i3 isn't really a good way of describing a CPU. Which one? It should be fine.

Lovely. 2 days ago I nearly bought a GTX 1050 Ti for £140. So so glad I've waited! Scorching deal, thanks op

No mention of Hitman this time, offer is still running.

No delivery until 29th either

'Bang for buck' king at this price.

Heat!

Great card although I'm probably bottlenecking it with my G3258 but looking at upgrading to an i5 4690

Link to the original thread from black friday

It's the sapphire nitro; not the nitro+
-no backplate
-clocked 30mhz lower

It will still be better than a normal 470; but not as good as the nitro plus which all the reviews of this card are for.

Hot. Didn't notice this earlier. Probably a better buy for me than the 480.

Excellent deal. I nearly bought one last time it was at this price. I'm tempted to go for it now, but I'll probably just make do with the old R9 270. Pretty much all I play are M & B Warband and Atlantic Fleet. I might just wait till Bannerlord is finally released before upgrading.

How useful would this be if added to an i7 6700k that runs 16gb ram? Thanks

The best advice is to research more rather than post on here. That's a top of the range cpu, and how useful it would be depends completely upon how you intend to apply your pc.

Don't rate PC games so not for me

Why comment then hahaha

Dam... Do I need a RX 480 or just go for this... Hmm... Decision decision...

i went for this as only have 1080p displays and thought heck this is a lot cheaper than 480 and 480 isn't much for 4k and no difference on 1080p and could always upgrade to "490" in future

Why would anyone want to handicap their gaming PC with 1050ti junk?

Nice upgrade from my 7970 GHz edition?

The 1050s are decent cards if you haven't got a great power supply and are looking for low power through the pcie slot only.

What the hell are you talking about? There''s nothing decent about 1050ti. Is there a problem with RX470 pcie consumption. HAS ANYONE REPORTED A PROBLEM? or are you just repeating this trash?
Why would a gamer not have a power supply to power 40 more watts than 1050ti? WHO ON EARTH doesn't have it? You are a deluded little nvidia fan liar. Stop posting.

People in this thread are not the ones who are concerned with those things you mentioned. Not one of them. They all have at least 350 watt PSU and are simply looking for best price/performance.

​i used my rx 470 in a dell t3400 i bought for my parents with q9400 quad core processor. dell manual said t3400 can only take 75w graphics card. this card is 110w but as motherboard should give it 75w I thought would only be 35w from the 6 pin anyhow. it works perfect!

You got some issues there my friend which cannot be solved on an Internet forum. You asked who would consider a 1050 so I gave a reasonable answer. If a person has a dell vostro or similar with 300 watt psu and is looking to upgrade the on board graphics with a low power card which is pretty much silent and can play the 'latest games' albeit not on ultra, but still have a decent experience then a 1050 is alright in my opinion! Edit to add that I couldn't care less about company brands.

Exactly. There's no problem, because nobody ever had one. There's nothing even to talk about. RX470 is a low power consumption card. More than 1050ti, but who cares? 1050ti is a cripple without DX12 that will be twice slower in future titles than RX470. Anyone who buys it has no self respect.

Why the comparison? The 1050Ti is cheaper, lower power, runs cooler, and is available in Mini, Low Profile and (soon) single slot variants. It's a great card for the money - the 470 isn't usually available at this price.

A 470 at £150 vs a 1050Ti at £130 is something of a no brainier in a traditional custom gaming PC set up, where there should be more than enough power and space available for the more powerful card. But the 470 isn't normally £150, and not everybody has standard custom gaming PC requirements.

Stop making a fool out of yourself. Nobody on here has a dell vostro with 300watt psu and looking for turning it into a gaming PC. People I see were clearly those who considered buying 1050ti but then went for RX470, as it is better. And their system clearly supports a 120W card.

It's not a 350W Nvidia GTX480 which people happily bought. It's just 120W. 1050ti is junk, noone should buy it apart fro m5 people in this country with dell vostro, who want to play latest games.

Wow. This thread went down the toilet.

Why the need for the hostility? It's a graphics card. Nobody gives a ****. Just buy whatever offers the best value at the time.

That's what i suspected looking at the comparisons, thanks man! Merry Christmas

is this much better than a 7850?

Jesus mate ask Santa for some Valium for Christmas next year.

The sort of people with an inadequate psu? Let me see someone looking to upgrade their cheap shop bought pc?

Go chill out before you have a stroke ffs

i got a gtx 750ti to turn a cheap business pc into a gaming oc. i agree the 1050ti can do a similar great job as could an rx 460. i decided to get a second hand Dell workstation to run the rx r70 and who knows what in the future. so for low powered pc, the 1050ti or rx 460 is the way to go. those with better psu... go for the rx 470. it runs everything 1080p max for me
