Good price for this card given graphics prices. RX580 are going for close to £400 now. Had to go via this link to get this price. 9 in stock. 6gb version. I have this card myself.

Given crazy prices of graphics cards this looks a good deal.

Postage is free! 9 in stock? Go grab em.

They sell the 3gb card for £30 more. Wonder if this is a misprice?
Still a rip off

The next best price for this card is £360 before postage.

Yes I paid £67 less than this on a misprice back in September. It's the way of the world right now. On Ebay the RX580 are going for over £400 now. If you need a graphics card this is a reasonable price given market.
Just gone up by 20 pounds! It's 319 now
Anyone considering buying a card, its a gamble, i reckon it is going to fall in value and plummet but it could do the opposite, plus theres only so many bitcoins left out there to mine, the difficulty is getting harder, id say wait a few months for the price of cards to fall (or rise), things can always happen, bitcoin mining could get taxed, the price of bitcoin could fall etc.

Still £297 on my browser.

Wouldn't suprise me if price went up as much cheaper than elsewhere. People are voting this cold but it will likely sell out.

I went via UKpartpicker.

Will they fall? The prices of Ethereum is falling but it's still over double what it was in Oct 2017. None of the major producers are increasing production! They fear they will get burnt.

I was lucky enough to get a card before the price hikes but with the way cryptos are looking I'd wait it out if not desperate to upgrade.

At this price you can clear 40-60 quid on ebay. Really pends what you think is a good deal.

Sold out!
And they scoffed at me when I bought my RX580 Nitro+ for £260 before xmas
Don't buy at this price (or higher) is my advice. Unless you have a decent GPU already PC gaming just isn't value for money any more and won't be till prices come back down and that won't happen unless there is a huge influx of supply (aint happening) or demand drops. The last one has perhaps a little better chance, especially if people vote with their wallets and refuse to buy overpriced GPUs.

If you must game right now, do it on console. It is really hard to argue with the value proposition of the Xbox One X, it's practically a PC with a GTX1070 for less than what just a 1070 costs right now! It's performance is comparable to a £1-1.5K PC ATM. If only someone could figure out a way to hack it to run regular Windows 10 and you would have a gaming machine right there for under £400...

I would tend to agree right now . I just built my sons partner a pc and for £750 it’s only got a 1050ti .. they would of been much better off just buying a Xbox one x ,although for me the Xbox dosnt have any of the games I want to play but would of been fine for them as they like mostly multi platform games

I don't agree. Xbox One is limited to 30 FPS. A 1070 is capable of 60FPS+ on high settings on certain games. The Xbox is also limited to a jaguar AMD CPU. This is really old technology and the new Ryzen chips will have this for breakfast. I guess the one advantage of Xbox is if you have an old game library or if games are only released on Xbox initially. Price of the Xbox is another.

I agree the price of 1070 cards is crazy right now.

Even so this card at £297 could of been sold for a lot more on ebay. You need to put prices into context of the current market. There is no guarantee that prices will fall any time soon. There is no stock. Try buying any RX580 retail. Most places have no stock. Hence why the 1060/1070 cards are also going at a big premiums. The premium on this card was around £80 compared to 6-7 months back. Other cards are selling with premiums of £140-180+.

The 1060 card would out perform an Xbox too.

Sure if money is your concern then an X Box One may be the way to go. Most people only ever buy 5-6 games for them. A PC there are thousands of title to buy. I use a site call GOG. Great Old Games. There are some classics on there which on sales are 1-3 quid .

Other advantage of a PC is you can swap in parts every few years. My current PC will last me 10 or so years. The Xbox will be replaced in next 2-4 years. At which point you will be shelling out 300-400 quid for a new machine. With no guarantee your games will work on the new model.

I dissagree in some ways . most games nowadays alow you to play at 1080 60 fps on xb1 or 30 fps at 4k . i agree that the cpu is pretty old but then again so is the i5 2500k and and gaming performancce will only be affected by 10-20% by that if at all + yes a new high end i5 or ryzen cpu with a 1070 will be better but will also cost nearly 3x as much , also a pc will be upgradable but for the cost you could probably buy the xb1 now and have enough left to upgrade to a ps5 (as thats likely coming soon) and still have some money left for games .......i am not an xbox fan and dont own one but do own a gaming pc but prices recentlybare stupid
A few people posting in here need to know that it is "would have", not "would of". Grammar Nazi out.

Site now showing - Sorry, this product has been discontinued. So they were clearing stock for a newer model maybe?
