Just found this deal on the AWD-IT website. Great if you are looking for an 8gb gaming graphics card. I've dealt with this online retailer before and had excellent customer service. If you haven't seen their website before its well worth browsing, there are some brilliant deals.

Seems like a great price

Heat this is going to the top

Fantastic!

Amazing price.

I've also used them in the past, no complaints.

This seems like an absolute steal. I'm waiting to build a whole new PC. I've been very tempted to buy one of AWD-ITs CPU and mobo deals but I keep holding on for Ryzen to shake things up!

This does seem like a great deal - just ordered mine!

Better deal than the 1060's all day long if paired with a capable CPU.

Great deal if you want one now. I'm tempted to wait a month or 2 to see what price drops vega and big pascal bring.

It might affect nothing but you never know. Ryzen is going to be brilliant for shaking the cpu market up though.

This or wait until the Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB drops down in price?

Good price either way!

Obviously I'm only speculating, but I would imagine that this far down the food chain there will be next to no impact on price due to the introduction of the 1080Ti and whatever the Vega card(s) end up being called.

If I remember correctly, the introduction of the 980Ti knocked 980 prices down a bit, but 970 and, more importantly, 960 (which the 1060 and RX480 are in the same tier as, albeit a generation newer) prices weren't really affected. x80 cards basically lose at least some of their "I'm the fastest" price premium once the x80Ti comes out, but no other card has that premium to begin with, so obviously can't lose it.

Ok is this much of an upgrade from an Asus HD7970 ? Would I also need to upgrade my power supply its a cooler master GX bronze 750w?

its been a while since I kept upto speed with such things .....

thanks

Your PSU will be fine; the RX 480 draws less power than the 7970.

As for performance, the RX 480 is undoubtedly the faster card, but whether it's worth the upgrade is up to you. I'm fairly sure it was the 7970 which was rebranded as the R9 280x. This video compares the RX 480, R9 380x, R9 280x and R9 270x playing various games at 1080p.

​im hoping we get 1 card for 4k ultra solution soon

when in Rome! been comparing 1060s and 480s in bed with the lights out. wife not been happy but this has just solved it. heat...

Bit the bullet, this is too much of a deal to turn down. The white design will match the new white case - It was meant to be. Thanks for the find OP

Well, actually Tahiti (7950/7970/7870LE, R9 280/280X) was retired after that and R9 380/380X is based on Tonga from the R9 285. Slighly newer so in some benches it will pull ahead due being able to handle tessellation better. Being a 256-bit bus design, it had less VRAM bandwidth though.
Anyway, for comparison for an upgrade from the 7970 the 280/280X is the one to use. 280X had faster clocks so more comparable to 7970 GHz edition.

Im really unsure as to whether they are good to buy from. Although yes they have many good reviews, the reviews that they have are very poor with things not turning up for example. What is the warranty on this? I really want to buy it but I don't know if i trust the seller 100%

The price is now showing for me as £152.49!




the tax will be added as soon as you are ready to check out

what sort of noise levels do these cards have? about to build my first PC in years and I want something small, powerful and relatively quiet. this looks good.

Two cards in undecided on too but at this price, the equivilant 1060 asus dual oc is about £80 more? is it worth it? All I want is super good 1920 x 1080 gaming

Cheers, you learn something new everyday!

I want this so bad, but I've ordered twice from other sites and have both of them refunded a day later.

There must be something dodgy going on, all these websites look the same, the same layout and the same text, what the hell is going on, am i the only one noticing this?

AWD IT is a legit site if that's your question, got a prebuilt pc from them at Christmas with no issues

This card will be fine it's the better deal.

If only they had the 4gb version. Good price still.

I may hold out a bit and buy 2 4gbs

If you crossfire these you dont need 8gb versions as its pointless

I think you might be misunderstanding how Crossfire (and SLI, for that matter) operate; you seem to have it backwards.

If you're going to Crossfire these, you absolutely want the 8GB version; you can only access half of the total VRAM in a 2-way Crossfire/SLI setup. That would mean effectively 2GB per card if you Crossfired two 4GB RX480s, but 4GB per card if you used two 8GB models instead.

Along with compatibility and optimisation problems, this is one of the other issues with gaining massive amounts of theoretical GPU power using a 2-way Crossfire/SLI setup with mid-range cards. You may well get the total GPU power (in theory...) of something like a GTX x80 or x80Ti card, but you'll often have a lot less VRAM (though not with an 8GB RX 480, as it has a lot of VRAM for its GPU power).

Reference vs aftermarket cooler. They're both have the same GPU with the same amount of VRAM, but this one probably has a better cooling solution for most people.

Added one to my cart, spent about 30 minutes debating, was about to buy it and then it goes out of stock. The gods have spoken.

Still waiting on my Novatech order so cancelled and bought this instead, cheers OP!

As has been mentioned, this is actually the exact opposite reasoning - with CrossFire, you would only be able to access half of the available total memory (so 4GB if you bought two 4GB cards). If you want to go the CrossFire, I would suggest getting the 8GB variants.

We have that already, it's called the Titan XP. You just wouldn't want to pay for it.
