Better than what?
Probably slower than the old HD 7870.

Titan X still goes for well over £300+ on ebay, a used HD 7870 £40-£50.

This card is not even worth £50, for £80~ you could buy a used HD7970/R9 280X that will thrash this pile of junk.
Those cards require lots of power though. This is good for someone like myself who just plays Rocket League and a few Origin Access games.

A 280x or HD 7970 for £80 is a nice find, it will distroy the rx 460 in terms of performance, they are even better than the 1050tis at £130

There you go:

From £70, which is the same price as the 280 and cheaper than the 7950. But then CEX prices seldom make sense. Well plus postage £2.50. Mail order you get absolutely no idea what make they'll send you though. But they do offer a '2 year warranty' (but I think unless they happen to have the same thing in stock, they'll try and wiggle out or credit you current price or similar).

Uses a slight bit more power though:

Total system load 124W versus 288W (you have to click the "+ 25 Einträge" to see the 280X).
But it scores 165% of this:

The 460 is a bad card, full stop. It doesn't sit at a convincing price point and simply doesn't fit with the rest of the radeon product line. The gap between the 470 and 460 is extreme.

It's simply bad value, even at this price. If you're looking at this price point (80 quid) seriously consider a used card from the previous generation. Or an APU/iGPU
As a performance mark, the RX460 challenges the Geforce GTX750 Ti - and at this price, may be preferable, but citing CeX prices, yes, there are some significant variations, with older range cards dipping compared to more recent models that may have lower performance.

The GTX 750 Ti tends to be on the high side of used prices, as it was a very popular workhorse with a good performance to power ratio - and is still a competent entry level gaming solution.

It's a price point where the battle rages between budget new cards and older cards displaced from higher places
