This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Currys seem to have price matched amazon for this card at 208. With FNDDGAMING code can get this next day.

Those with blue light cards can use gift cards on this to receive a further 6.5% taking it to approx £196. Which is a great price for this card.

That isn’t the super version of the card, that’s why it’s a little cheaper


for all the issues pc world / currys have had and still are doing you would have to be deaf dumb and blind to give them your custom


for me its been 1 month and still no reply back from my 3 phone calls, 2 emails and live chat.
i would never recommend anybody to shop with them.
I used to defend Currys on here but in the last fortnight i had the worst customer service experience I've ever had ever. Took me 6 phonecalls, 3 hours in total, and 2 trips to a store. Didnt have to wait hours to get through but a couple of times I was cut off whilst on hold. And i was blatantly lied to more than once. I know we have pandemic etc but they were simply incompetent and downright dishonest. The whole thing was Kafkaesque to the point where it actually became amusing how useless they were. Amazing how a view of a company can go from Ok to "will never shop there again unless i have zero other options". Sort your **** out Currys 😔

Tl;dr version : avoid currys

They do, but can use gift cards at a discounted rate with currys to make it cheaper. Obviously up o people to shop with whoever they like, but for this card using the gift cards it is a good price. If on the very rare occasion there is a problem with the card then it may be better having gone with Amazon.

Yeah I stayed in my post that it was price matched with amazon. You can get a further 6.5% off if you can get discount cards through employer schemes or the blue light card so it makes it about £13-14 cheaper. Entirely up to people if they think that is worth the risk of encountering poor service with Curry’s.

not all of us have "employer schemes or the blue light card"

That is why I said “if” .. of course if you don’t have this option it makes more sense to go with amazon but if you do then people can decide if they think the £13 discount is worth the risk of coming across poor service..

I don’t think people need to be told that, but if you want to get the card for the cheapest price AND have access to the blue light or employer schemes (which I know a lot of people do) curry’s and gift card is the cheapest way to buy this card.

Sorry can’t help with that. I am building a pc to play 60hz 1080p on decent settings and know that this card will be fine for that but can’t comment on anything 4K sorry! Hopefully someone else can help out

this is more for 1080p gaming. you can play more recent titles @ 4k but dont expect to hit 60fps even on low settings
Cheers OP! Cancelled the Gigabyte one with amazon from yesterday in favour of this as I get 7% off

1080/1440p is what you want, 4k sustainable gaming isn't possible yet, the hardware needs to catch up with the lie. If they say they are, ask them what their turning off in settings.

Is this a worthwhile upgrade from an RX 470? Or should I continue to wait? I'm thinking the 5600 XT will be this price by the end of autumn.

That is the same card on amazon. The naming convention for the Nvidia Cards is something that is supposed going to be addressed in the latest releases. At present it is very confusing.
Surprised these aren't dropping in price faster. Few more months might be a different story though

As far as I know one way to tell the difference is the memory/RAM type:

GDDR5 = 1660
GDDR6 = 1660 super

Damn! The HDMI ports on my Radeon RX 580 which I bought from Curry's four months ago started acting up and I might need to send it back to them for a refund. :/
Don't hold me to it but Currys don't do refunds after 28 days, they will want it for repair (6 weeks) then if it can't be fixed they will replace or credit towards another purchase..

Probably, the pandemic has seen a spike in gaming stuff so value is holding well just now.
Thanks for sharing @davidh7229
Will never buy anything from Curry's again - Absolute joke of a company who seem to employ either former estate agents or failed used car salesmen.

All the time they offer their "chimps in a blue shirt" an incentive to sell ridiculously over-priced extended warranties, valued at a percentage of the product's value, they're encouraged to upsell the dearest item.

Aftercare is a farce and sails so far beyond the Consumer Rights Act, it's catching up with Dame Ellen McNomates.

Avoid.

The consensus seems to be that the 3060 (or equivalent) is some way off, and therefore the mid-range cards like the 1660 and 2060 aren't going to fall through the floor overnight.

I jumped on the EVGA 2060 deal the other day that included Death Stranding, after selling the game it's worked out at £245 and it's got the better chip for CUDA rendering/Blender and other stuff I don't understand.
Very cool

Write a review on trustpilot, i was having some issues with currys customer service for a month or so, as soon as i stuck a bad review on trust pilot someone got in touch with me and it was sorted within a week.

Other than maybe Amazon, who else allows a refund after 28 days?? Just you say it like Currys should offer refunds after 28 days, yet I don't think any retailer does! Seems extreme, 28 days to make your mind up. The law is 14 days to return an item if unused and you've changed your mind. This has been extended to 21 days by Currys due to pandemic. Otherwise the law is 30 days if the item is faulty. And then the seller has the right to repair or replace the item. Only after a failed attempt by them to repair or replace can you legally request a refund. That's what the "The Consumer Rights Act 2015" states.
