I'm not sure but possibly 3 months Xbox Games Pass included too.
Where's that user who had a mard at me saying this will never be £200 again as previous deal was a one off?
Personally I'd still hit the £248 Pulse version of this card, the noise and heat on this bad boy are real. If you can't stretch, this is ludicrous price for performance though, punching £120+ above it's weight

Aye aye to that kapten. If you are a tinkerer, undervolt this bad boy and keep the power same or lower then you can keep it cool and quiet but that's not for everyone.

It does make the RX5700 and RTX2060 hard to swallow considering they're at least 50% higher in cost but don't deliver 50% extra performance...15% at best on average.
Glad to have bought one this month morning with the b450 carbon pro motherboard. Missed out last time they were on offer.

If keeping a new board for say 5 years, should I get a 2600 for ~ £112 or a 3600 for ~£190? Really unsure which to go for. I suppose I could spend another ~£100 on a new CPU in say 3 yrs if opted for the 2600 now.

Is it really worth £50 extra for the Pulse? I've been after that exact card for a while now but £50-60 less for this version is a huge drop. Can the Pulse really perform roughly 25% better to justify the extra cost?

Can't quantify for sure because a lot of tweak with volts and frequencies will be needed. The pulse will mostly give you a very quiet experience out of the box. If you don't mind the blower style cooler there's not that much benefit to paying more.
Out of stock right, more stock by Thurs?

Upgrading your CPU in 3 years may not be worthy so I'd go with R7 2700 for £163 as 8 cores will last you longer. hotukdeals.com/dea…500

It's personal opinion really. When I build a PC I see it as an overall appliance, so for instance a mid range £600 build, by going for the Pulse you'll be adding a total cost of 8%. For that 8% you get a solid cooler, which basically makes the card a Vega 64, and it'll run at 64 levels at very manageable temps. A quiet unit is also very nice to have.
This has been OOS for around 4 hours, come on mods expire it.

I could get a 3600 via Amazon for £185 as they gave me a fiver voucher. Would get a fiver off the 2700 via Amazon too. I thought the 3600 is the one to go for: are you saying the 2700 is better for general use, music production (hobby) software and gaming?

Will have to read up on them.

The 3600 is great for sure, I only considered the 2700 because you've mentioned maybe upgrading the CPU in 3 years. An 8 cores / 16 threads CPU like the 2700 may carry you a bit further, maybe even 5 years, with no need to upgrade the CPU. I believe newer games are going to use more cores / threads with the new consoles next year probably rocking a R7 8 cores processor. You can't go wrong either way!

Thanks. Currently got a AMD 8350. Quite a few years old. I'll have a look around to see if the 2700 is any cheaper (now Prime day stuff has started) than the recent deal posted on hukd with CCLonline for £163.79 Otherwise I will just buy from CCLonline.

If you find a good deal, go for the 3600. The 2700 is only an option if you can find it £30 - £40 cheaper and use that money towards something else i.e nvme instead of sata ssd, case with better cooling so you can overclock higher both CPU and your Vega 56, etc...
