Really only a 2Gb card due to Sli and with Sli support in decline there is a good chance some of your games will only use 1 GPU.
I'd rather have the r9 380 for an extra fiver.
Not great IMHO, you can be sure these old GPUs would be fetching maybe half this were current gpus not so overpriced. Of course, I'm all for buying a generation behind to save money but I think when you get up to three plus generations back and more than five years ago, you are going a bit far to still have good performance and reliability in modern games. The age of the card would worry me, yes I know about cex offering good warranty but even so with computer components you don't really want the hassle of being without a major part if you can avoid it.

Aside from that it is extremely power hungry (and no doubt hot too) and fundamentally it aint even that cheap. All that in mind I wouldn't pay much more than about £90 for this at absolute best...
Freezing cold deal !

This. So much this. I had a laptop with dual GTX 680Ms (basically desktop 670s, underclocked). I had to really stay on top of driver updates otherwise you'd drop to single GPU mode with unacceptable performance. Sometimes I had to wait a few weeks to play a new game while drivers were sorted out. It was not fun. Now I use a single GTX 970 and am just dropping settings while waiting for a worthwhile GPU upgrade to come out (50% extra, same £200 price tag, second hand fine)
This is only worth a buy as a collecters item really

Wouldn’t put it past cex

They wouldn't be the only company doing this on here
CEX prices are ****. They sell second hand gear the same price that Amazon sells brand new. Can't be doing with em anymore.
