Pretty good bang for the buck. 8gb RX 580. Ryzen processor.. Wi-fi enabled apparently. With sky high GPU and RAM pricing I think this is a great deal. If you wanted you could sell the GPU and make a killing off of it. EDIT: RAM is 2400mhz Kingston hyper x fury, so probably headroom for OCing

You won’t be selling the graphics cards for any sort of extortionate price. miners are only buying up nvidia, not amd.

8gb Gaming PC? Doesn’t the One Plus phone have 8GB?


It’s 8gb dedicated to graphics and 8gb of internal memory. Stick to candy crush.

Tell that to my card;

Currently selling my 8gb 580 on Ebay with 24 hours left for £420.... I bought it in November for £210...

Bought a 1070ti today from CEX for £460 - with their 2 Year warranty, was suprised when I opened the parcel that they'd sent me a top of the line card too- Asus Strix. Very happy.

8gb RAM is enough for gaming when you got a processor and gpu like that, phones don't compete with PC's....

My i5 3570k and 290x lightning is still doing me fine. If it does pack up I think I'll have to go back to console. I'll not pay stupid gpu prices.

Same spec here, but with a 290. Running all games at 1080p absolutely no problem. Just built a mate a 1500x system but because of gpu prices had to get him a used pcs 8gb 290x but jesus does that system still eat anything at 1080p, no need to upgrade for years.
Sold my laptop the other day on eBay £1100 for an i7/GTX1060 (only paid £800 in September 2017) so will be looking for something else soon.

Nice good deal, considering I just sold my gtx1070 mini itx for 420 on ebay. Bought it for 150 lol
Wow bought my MSI 1080 ages ago for £400 delivered from eBay. Was pristine condition. Hasn't skipped a beat since. Maybe I should sell it and quit gaming?

Sell it now whilst the prices are high, then buy yourself a XX70 / XX80 when Nvidia announce them in a few weeks

Nope amd cards are better at different algorithms
One thing to be aware of is looking at the Q&A on the Argos site it's only one stick of 8GB ram, so the memory will only be running in single channel which will really hurt performance on Ryzen. Budget for an extra stick of 8GB 2400 ram or be prepared to sell it and replace it with a proper dual channel 8GB kit.
Kingston RAM is poor quality IMO (Kingston Hyper X 3200Mhz & 3000Mhz). I've RMA'd two sets already and this third set is dying already. That's with no overclock etc.
Just buy a PS4 Pro. Less wires, less hassle.

Not massively up to date with AMD stuff but judging by spec and price I’d guess equivalent to an i5 6600 or i5 7600,8gb with maybe a high end 1050ti or a high end 1060???

So 1080p on ultra no probs or 1440p medium/high if a 1060 equivalent.

I’d say it’s a good price. No SSD though...

The RX 580 when available provided the best bang for buck.
The GPU is stupidly priced now, Nvidia only became prevalent because of AMD shortages...

A 580 comes in above a 1060 but quite below a 1070. And the CPU comparison is pretty bang on.

Have been playing most games on ultra with a solid 70fps - 1080p. PUBG being the exception, where I had to have settings to high to get 70fps.

Hi all, not really upto date with all the latest gfx models etc... So is this worth the cash or not?

Thanks

The recommended requirements for both of those are pretty low, anything with an i5/i7 or a Ryzen cpu and 8Gb of ram will be more than adequate.

You don't need a graphics card unless you are thinking of using it for gaming or video editing which will save you quite a bit, however audio quality can be rubbish on a lot of pre-built systems so you may want to budget for a decent sound card.

Read your comment and checked eBay, yep my sapphire nitro rx480 8gb had also skyrocketed in price... To sell or not to sell, that's the question!
All this talk about 'Amateur Miners'.

Good enough for all but the snobbiest of audiophiles, and even then 90% of them wouldn't be able to tell the difference. External DACs are fairly popular these days though.

Indeed, good resolution is importat but speed isn't. Yes, I will use an external sound interface. I would still want an audio out and probably HDMI without the external soundcard though. Can I use an external device for recording but output via the onboard audio?
