I posted a link to this in the comments for another offer and you nick it to post it as a deal in it's own right!

Ha! Just j/k'ing. It's a decent price for this. If anyone doubts that, Scan is selling it for £269 (no, really!)... scan.co.uk/pro…-3x

Minus 2 games its £100 GPU. Perfect card for all those online games. cheap and fast.
One can tell Cryptokitties in decline
can i return once i get the games?
Bugger, just bought the sapphire 4gb version from amazon for £169.

Cards will tank, the new generation RX 3060, 3070, and 3080 are all huuuuugggeee bang for buck. This should be about £120

3060 = £150 equiv to RX 580 / GTX 1060

3070 = £200 equiv to Vega 56+ 15% / GTX 1070ti

3080 = £250 equiv to Vega 64+ 15% / RTX 2070

Holy poop, that's a great price with the games, sold for about £60, making this £110ish. Still wondering if the rx580 nitro+ special edition I bought for £166 is still a good deal lol,

That doesn't include delivery which, unless you can collect from them, is at least £9.90 extra.

That's currently just speculation and given how high Nvidia went with their new card prices there's a very real chance AMD will decide to follow suit. Also when you factor in the 2 new releases you get with this card (£30 each seems reasonable) it effectively is £120.

Q2 2019.
Not sure if this is the right place but there seems to be a lot of knowledgeable PC people on here.

I have a pretty old PC with a Radeon 6750 (yes that old). I am tempted to upgrade but probably don't need to step up to the very latest card because I only want to game at 1080P (whilst having a second monitor available) - and not necessarily the very latest/most demanding games either. Can anyone recommend a card that would be worth going to but not overkill? Or a good resource/site for finding out about this? Also, my main reason for upgrading is that recently my second monitor has stopped working - I've tried different cables but no luck so it looks like the second DVI port on the card has broken.
Edit: Rest of my spec is 16GB RAM, its an old Intel Quad Core 6600 CPU from what I recall.

A Core 2 Quad Q6600 or an i5 6600 ?

This card would be ideal for 1080/60 gaming.

I have one of these from a previous deal and the noise these make is WOW. Easily the loudest card i have had in 20 odd or so years. Decent performance though and does keep the chill away.

I was going to ask about power supply, but iirc the 6750 was a hungry little bleeder (EDIT: WRONG!); so you should be fine on that front (500w+). Check your power supply.

Have you considered adding an SSD? As the best two ways to improve an older tech but higher-end-back-in-the-day system are a current low-mid/budget graphics card and SSD.

Edit: your old motherboard may give you issues sadly. I've read the RX 4+5## cards don't like to play well with older motherboards.

You may be better off putting together a cheap bang for buck type system of you have the fundage.

Ryzen 5 2600 bundles on eBay with a motherboard are handy right now; there's 15% off for Christmas (max saving of £50).

For 1080p gaming this card is perfect for you, I would check your PSU as your 6750 is quoted at 86w power consumption whereas the rx580 is probably double that under load although you can quite easily under volt the power consumption of the 580 to save some power within AMD's drivers (it's very easy to do).

I'm in the same boat as you... got an old pc with a Q6700 and 16Gb ram... and a HD4850 lol... I want to refresh it but not spend too much as I don't really have time to do proper gaming anymore... thanks to the minion . I now tend to play games that I can play in short bursts ... so games like Smite, League of Legends, CS etc, no longer have time for long immersive games like Skyrim. However in the games I played, all the recent updates meant that the games were put on lowest settings and there were still some performance issues.

I swapped out the Q6700 for a Q9650 which was the fastest LGA775 chip and bought this graphics card.... running so much better! My only additional purchase I needed to make was that my PSU didn't have an 8 pin connector which this graphics card.

Before people ask why I don't just get a better chip... it's because I'm slowly building up my next pc - I now have a good psu, cooler and graphics card... the next step will be the cpu/mobo/ram combo which is a big leap in price and can't be done individually.

Yes it looks great but it's all based on leaks which may not be true(even Jim from Adored said that) - don't get me wrong I would love them to be true because I shall be upgrading to Ryzen 3 series next year. It may be 6 months before they hit the mainstream channel and the speeds/prices could all be wrong. The 580 right now (at this price) is a great buy and should be fine for a few years at 1080p in triple A demanding titles.

Wrong about the 1060 (which is the only card from your list to compare with). The 1060 has fallen behind in most titles whereas the 580 takes the lead in most. Nvidia don't care about long term driver optimizations because it doesn't help their share price. There are enough clueless people that blindly purchase a card based on brand to allow them to do this.

Also FreeSync monitors are way cheaper than Nvidia's propriety G-Sync so factor than in too if you plan to purchase a new monitor. *Even Intel's new in development dGPU's "Artic Sound" will support FreeSync.

Here's a 590 v 580 v 1060 comparisons over several games.

I got this card to upgrade from my 7950 and it's great. I'm on 1080p too, sometimes the fans don't even run, I thought something was wrong but nope, it was cool enough to turn them off.

None of this is gospel plus who bloody cares what they call it, it's a CPU not a naming contest. If it delivers what I want at the right price they can call it Mary Poppins for all I care.

If they bang out products like that they can call them whatever the hell they like; gamers will flock to them.
Here's hoping the new AMD 7nm low power range means we'll see a lot more mini ITX options... current selection is D-pressing.

It would be nice but id like to bet them prices will be $ , we will get something more like £250 , £350 and £450 , which is about the same as the current cards.

580 for £179.99 with the 2 games is a decent deal anyway. Voted hot
I bought this card from ebuyer during black Friday.

Its great, the one thing I have noticed though the fans sometimes go up to 80% seems like a driver bug though, generally very quite and ive not seen temps over 67ish.

I think this card is better than the 1060 6GB, okay it requires more power but not a incredible amount more but this allow for some over clocking in the future. (Albeit not too much since its a rebadged rx480). Also it has more bandwidth which should future proof the card more than the 1060.

(My opinion no death threats please)

Rx580 will do but I think its overkill. I had that cpu for 10 years, the rx570 or 1050ti is more suitable but given the costs between the rx580 and and the lower cards right now an argument can be made you get the rx580 and maybe upgrade in the future.
