Found 4th Nov 2016Made hot 4th Nov 2016
Price dropped from £135 at launch in the summer to £109 now since the launch of GTX1050.

"AMD’s positioning the Radeon RX 460 as an affordable solution for e-sports gamers who want to blow past not just 60 frames per second, but 90 fps with High settings at 1080p resolution without breaking the bank. That’s one hell of a step up! It’s no coincidence that this card is launching the very same day that Dota 2’s mammoth $20 million The International 2016 tournament kicks off."

I suppose it's the 4gb version so not a bad deal, however spend a little more for a lot better.

I'd Buy a used 970 or 290 instead

Just Wondering

A used 970 for 110 please show me this magical graphics card land

What would you get that's cost a little more? I'm after an upgrade from 660ti on a budget so no new gtx 1080 for me lol

would this handle just cause 3 at reasonable settings ? not looking for anything major, just playable and reasonably smooth

If you're willing to look at the used market, R9 290Xs go for around that money these days and still offer tons of performance (on par with or slightly better than an RX 480 or GTX 1060). You will need a decent PSU for one of those though. On the Nvidia side there isn't much really. I don't consider the GTX 780 a worthwhile option, because 3GB VRAM is becoming really limiting, even at 1080p, and frankly performance just isn't that great in newer titles (I sold a one myself a few months back for that reason).

You could improve things a bit by lowering some settings I'm sure.

Thanks for that. Tempting. I want to play the game but I don't want to fork out an arm and a leg for a GFX card.

benchmarks wise it's about 20% faster than a 750 ti but similar money so seems a good deal to me

seems good for 720p gaming

Is there such a person as an 'undemanding gamer'? Does it exist?

It's called a console gamer. Plug and play and no hassle or stability problems. A PS4 pro has the equivalent performance of a 480 so it's hard to make the argument for low end cards on a cost:performance basis even though I'm 720P gaming on a 5450 LOL.

Still way too expensive for the awful performance the 460 gives. Do yourself a favour and stretch for the 4GB 470 for well over double the performance. This thing is obsolete before you even buy it.

Have you seen the age of some of the steam games that crop up here. This card would absolutely demolish many of them. Certainly way better than any on die gpu people may have.
Not everyone runs high resolutions, ultra settings and multiple screens.
Despite the marketing men telling gamers differently, not everyone cares what 4 x GTX 1080 cards will do in SLI on an IMAX screen.

Good to hear I'm not the only one who's happy with 720p gaming! I was hoping for a Black Friday 1050 deal, but if the competition are going to drop their prices I might go for something like this instead.

R9 290x for just over £100? When I looked on the auction site people were asking more like £200 for 2nd hand 290x cards although some have gone for more like £150 before.

Just depends where you look. Forums and facebook etc are best, ebay is terrible for second hand pc parts, unless you are selling

As an idea, Asus 290x with customer cooler, £120 posted
Or Sapphire 290X Vapor-X 8GB for £125 posted
Superclocked EVGA 4GB 970 GTX for £110 posted

Just some recent second hand prices from forums, so ebay is the last place I would ever buy a second hand gfx card from unless you are really lucky

l will avoid R9 ( especially the founder`s edition, l`ve got the 8GB, my God, so loud and the heat, my PSU/MOBO/FANS, can cope, but coming from a gtx that barely whisper (yes, the R9 is amazing, but for the noise)
Honestly from what you said, get the gtx lightning edition of msi (experience of gtx/r9 makes next jump to nvidia, then will have to get rid of the 144hz monitor, l love competition, but, AMD are making life easy for NVIDIA.

Would you mind sharing infor about the forums? Trying to upgrade from my GTX 460

if you are limited in spend it's a good card, plays well on modern games, with good frame rates, plenty of YouTube videos about this card...... or just spend a lot more to get something the naked eye can't distinguish between ;-)
