You can get this card for only £83.64, if you select the free shipping option at checkout, and it is from a reputable retailer also, great!

Good price, saw it for the same yesterday at Aria PC but couldnt post it

Won't vote either way, but at this price it's worth paying a couple of pounds extra for a better brand. I bought this exact card when it was available for £58 a few weeks ago. Compared to the Asus and Gigabyte deals recently posted at similar prices, this one has awful build quality.

Fair comment, I assume £58 had to be an Amazon mis-price, since this card has been £95+ until very recently.
I've not really had any bad experiences with PowerColor, may just have been lucky however.

I don't think it's been any cheaper on Amazon. It was available from a load of etailers around the £65-£70 mark a short while ago. A few were posted on here. I mentioned that it was £58 from one supplier, but they weren't deemed reputable enough to post as usual

Works absolutely fine, just next to other brand cards it looks and feels cheap. To be fair it was, but at this price I wouldn't buy it. The better built Asus version also has a much better heatsink and dual fan, it's a massive improvement in quality and a very slight bump in performance for just £3 more.

Was posted at £86.99 and went very hot, now £85.99. Be quick if you want it, only 3 left - amazon.co.uk/dp/…84g

I personally would suggest considering a used card in this price range rather than buying the 460.

It's a very week card and if you can stump up a bit more for the 470, or wait, or buy used... It would be a better investment.

Your spelling is very week, not the card. Nvidia is happy to sell 1050 cards for a lot more. This card is a much better buy for those who need it. You can buy your girlfriend (if you ever have one) a used pair of shoes, your choice. Don't think everyone else would think it's a good idea.

Woof, you got me, I mixed up weak and week. What am I going to do man? I lost the internet.

This is absolutely a weak card.

You know what is a bit of a shame, that you bring my romantic relationships, be a bit of a sexist, and attempt to deride my opinion based on sexism, spelling, and social relationship status. Maybe you can talk about the deal and not me?

Mind you, that's a review for the 4gb card from ASUS Strix, factory OCd.

I see where you are coming from, but the cheapest RX 470 is £139.98 which is 67% more expensive that this card so it's not really a comparison.

As for second hand, yes, in theory second hand is fine but not everyone can buy second hand as there are not 'xx amount in stock' they are one off's generally. If you were shopping second hand in this price range I am not sure what you can get that is significantly faster that doesn't require a decent PSU with a PCI-E 6-pin connector, so you might end up have to buy another PSU, further adding to the costs.

If someone likes to play computer games, I simply can't recommend this card.

If you want a card that doesn't require a decent PSU or a PCI-E 6 pin, then I would point you toward the 750 ti 950/1050 Geforce card. Geforce is much better suited for low end CPUs and DX11 gaming.

Anyway, if you are stuck without a 6 pin PCI, then that's another problem.

I simply can't suggest this card to anyone who isn't stuck with that situation, I can't recommend the 750 ti, 950, 1050 or 460. They don't even handle the current generation's games at 60 fps 1080 reasonable graphics.

(I'd suggest the 750 Ti shouldn't be in the same discussion)

The RX460 has similar performance to the HD 7870/R9 270/R7 370 and the GTX 660 Ti (and the Xbox One and the PS4), so games are going to be built around its capabilities for a while, but it isn't the most powerful card around. The RX470 appears to be a significant step up (3 tiers in the GPU hierarchy) for not that much more.

Talking about secondhand graphics cards, I thought I'd mention these oldies from Cex (ebay is often overpriced). They will use more electricity, will run out of support earlier and may still not be cheap enough to buy (the GTX 580 has the best bang for the buck, but is probably too old) :

Great follow up post, that was my thoughts if I wasn't lazy ;-)

Now, I do want to point out something: The xbox and PS4 are going through a weird phase where they are both offering upgrades to their consoles. It may not be the 'defacto' specs to publish for, so aiming for a 460 as your target may leave you in an awkward position where developers are planning around the new console specs (they aren't really 'new') but I think you know what i mean.

Original Poster

The only card on that list that is going to offer a large amount of difference is the 7970/R9 280 (maybe the GTX 680), and they both need an 8+6 pin power connector and draw at least a couple of hundred watts under load. Again that's not really helping someone who wants to plonk this in a Dell Inspiron/ HP Pavilion/Zoostorm etc.. basic tower with a 300-400W PSU, even when you can convert the spare molex plugs to the correct connectors, it would probably just end up killing the PSU.

So yeah, someone looking for a cheap card to play games that requires no extra upgrades and doesn't want to spend £140 on the RX 470, you have pretty much two options this or for 20% more cost the cheapest Geforce GTX 1050, which is about 15% faster at best.
