Works out at £202 for me including delivery.
There's a waiting time of 1-2 months but I can't see it taking that long.
Also note you need Amazon prime, but you can sign up to a free 30 day trial if you've never done it on the French site before.

How much more?

For £202? Sounds good, where?

Also by your extended logic, why bother with a GTX 1070? Why not get a Titan XP?

Simply click on the Prime button in Blue, and it will give you a 30 day free trial of Prime (even if you've had it on amazon.co.uk) you can use chrome to translate if you like. But be sure to cancel the trial as soon as you have it setup as otherwise you might get charged in a month.

and btw here is a box only, atleast it says gtx 1070 on it for only a tenner - ebay.co.uk/itm…929?hash=item3ad84fe971:g:BucAAOSwo4pYdmFk

Noob question, I'm running an old XPS desktop with an i7-3770 running @ 3.40Ghz and 12gb RAM, if I buy this and change my current graphics card would it make my PC passable at running games at a half-decent speed? I'm guessing not but would appreciate any advice. Many thanks.

well you're running an i7, pair it with this card and you will be playing almost every AAA on high-ultra setting with no problems at all...

i have a rig with an i7 3770k not overclocked but on stock settings paired with a gtx 980 ti and its beast almost kills any game you throw at it i7 in any generation is good enough to play all AAA games

That's good to know. Mine's still all stock settings, I'll give this card a go I think.

definitely! don't know how fast your ram is but even then it won't hit performance that much, in my experience anything above 1600mhz is MORE than 'passable'
shame its a not a 3770k, then you could overclock it and get a couple more years of use out of that chip and board. but 3.4Ghz is still more than adequate. and new api's take better advantage of hardware and extra core [at least in theory] so you may not actually need extra frequency in the coming year or two

I wouldn't quite say that, but the 3770K is still a very capable processor.

So you have a "rig" with an i7-3770K paired with a 980 Ti, but you never use it because you also have a PC with an i7-980..?

Quite apart from 'game-debate' being a joke of a site, I find your setup quite... fantastical.

Still, the oldest i7s have aged quite well, although those older architectures are starting to creak a bit. If they're not an overclocking model and you're a gamer, this year seems like a good year to upgrade. Wait for Ryzen to come out in four weeks and see what's best then.

i have 6 rigs...im an enthusiast really but to hell with ryzen im getting the kaby lake monster soon...an i5

and btw i use the i7 980 more cuz its my baby....it served me well back then as it still serves me well as of now so i aint letting that go ever...

No one really does. We won't until it's out.

lol everybody waiting on ryzen like its going to blow intel away...ill stick with intel/kaby lake due it being more superior and less on watt/temps as intel always are with their processors...the best thing i had from amd is the r 290x which was true to their word also the nano and fury but the rest is so and so

​Thank you for reply I don't think they will blow Intel away. I'm just a average consumer looking for advice on best value to performance. So getting opinions is wise. I always try to find the best quality to value ratio, unlike some who will glue to brands.
Best thing I can do as I don't have time to look into all this or that level of interest is get opinions and then I can find out more from those key points. Then make an informed decision rather than as I say, "Glue with brands".
So better watts/temp and better performance, thanks.

everything gets a lot of hype before someone gets hold of it then thats where the disappointment arises

Don't think you can find a mid-range card as good as this anywhere for this low a price, hot!

Could anyone recommend a blower style RX480 8GB that comes close to the performance of this?

It's all my mini-itx case can take.

Not sure there is a mini rx 480

very little difference in the two cards at 1080p and DX11

RAM speed really makes no difference unless you can and want to overclock. youtube.com/wat…1z4 I run i7 3770 with 16GB DDR3 1066MHz with RX480 and I can play Fallout4, Resident Evil 7, Doom etc all maxed out with solid 60fps @ 1080p. Same applies to RAM sticks with heat spreaders - if you can't or don't overclock, then you are wasting your money.

Your biggest issue might be your PSU, if you are still using your OEM PSU, and space in the case. My PC is HP H9-1250ea (mid tower) and I have to angle the card 2 ways to get it in and out, so make sure you check the measurements and your PSU before you buy.

excellent!! cheers!!

Sapphire Nitro+ edition for £205ish as the MSI one is now out of stock? Seems to have a higher boost clock spec but otherwise very similar.
