After seeing the 1060 3GB deal I saw this was available for £5 less, although it's not exactly the same I think it's a better deal in some (definitely not all) respects.
Pros vs 1060 3GB:
- Performance is +/- ~5% depending on the game
- An additional 1GB VRAM for those who are worried about the 3GB of the 1060 deal
- AMD Fine Wine™ technology
Cons vs 1060 3GB:
- Slightly higher load power usage than the (~30w)
- Subsequent slightly higher heat output
- According to some people AMD sometimes include a complementary driver installation/troubleshooting mini game. Never had the pleasure myself when using AMD cards in the past.
I'm just picking this up to get my WFH setup sorted until I can find a proper deal on a more modern card. I'm running 1440p so just a little more concerned about 3gb limit than if I was using 1080p.
It's worth noting that (to my knowledge) the CeX 2 year warranty is a refund up to 6 months, after that it's a voucher for their current sell for price, which could be lower than this if GPU values continue to tumble. It's only £85 though so that's not exactly the end of the world.
