Cheap as chips for a mid range card.

Very very tempting to me as well, but I shall wait till Ryzen 3/5 and RX 500 rebadge cards are released, cause I'm hoping for more price drops and for them to settle down a bit more too.

Just noticed that, Ive already got it though
This was on AWD IT last week for £183 i think - BEWARE there are massive reports of issues with this card, crashing forcing hard reset - and no known way to fix.

I purchased last week and after seeing all the comments of people having the same issue, the supplier have asked me to return it.

Free delivery for me as well courtesy of AVForums

Been keeping an eye on RX480 prices for a while and this is pretty much the price point I've been waiting for.
Brilliant card, heat.
If I buy this...it will drop to £149 next week! Decisions, decisions.
I bit the bullet on this on Saturday already for £188 not that disappointed tho to be fair

What a waste of time and money to send these out to have them returned for a replacement / full refund, you wonder how many of these are coming from a faulty manufacturing batch, and how these got through QA...

Buy it today so i can get it for £149 next week
Just to add to the quality issues, I got one of these cards two days ago, (not from Scan), and had a terrible time getting it to work - crashes to desktop, freezing, etc. Tried everything - driver cleanup, reinstall Windows etc etc.
Took it back to the supplier who said I was the sixth return that day! The card was running very hot - I think the heatsink wasn't properly seated on the GPU. Declined the offer of a replacement and went for a Gigabyte Rx480 instead. Popped it in my rig and no issues whatsoever. It look as though a bad batch has got out of the factory.
Got the 4GB deal today so fingers crossed it's not faulty!
Seems to have expired - gone up now.

Offer expired now.



It's not blooming expired, it is still there on the Today Only page for the third time!!!

That page gets updated at 14:00 most days so...
No idea where the helpers/moderators are, have asked this to be unexpired as it is still valid and people could be missing out on a good deal.
I got an email yesterday saying the Game Code was out of stock. SCAN state a problem with their automated system as the Card wont dispatch without the Game Code being in stock :-(

Hopefully the issue will be resolved today and the card dispatched tomorrow instead (I don't give a monkey for the game)
