I've been searching for about 4 weeks now for an "instock" offer and all the decent priced cards on Amazon are still "delivered in 1 to 2 weeks" and have been for awhile now (more than 1 to 2 weeks)

Novatech and Overclockers have some stock but all are +£30 over this price.

you missed a couple Rx 480 deals then. I know I posted one that lasted 2 days

Yeah i was away in deepest darkest Cornwall and signal was patchy. By the time i saw it and went to scan it was "pre-order" again

still makes me laugh that yours went to 322 degrees without next day delivery (i think) yet mine £11 more with next day is cold. Guess that's HUKD for you ;/

Question for any GPU experts, im fully expecting i need to upgrade my GPU for the latest and greatest games.
I currently have an AMD R9 270 which from what i can tell is basic as you get, but i just downloaded the BF1 Beta, stuck it on ultra at 1080 and i still get a very playable 30fps.

Is a 480 or 1070 going to make the game "that" much better by boosting the fps? and if thats the case the step up from 270 to 480 will likely be just as good as from 270 to 1070 given that both will run at 60fps+?

From my previous experiences of BF beta's, beta Ultra != Ultra. Ie, although you can select it, some or most of the effects will continue to work in medium etc.So I wouldn't rely on that as an indicator of performance.

That price is too close to the custom 8GB RX 470 cards that overclock well/review better in some cases, though I keep reading that on the forums that both prices have people holding off and hoping for better in the run up to Christmas.

I think your question will get a lot of different mindful answers and some that will come down to making a list of the games that you like and selecting a graphics card based on the reviews of graphics cards when benchmarking with those games, specifically.

I have been reluctantly impressed by the GTX 1070, reluctantly because of the current prices but impressed because of the very smooth game play with the settings turned up high. I would probably still spend less, now, speaking for myself, and save up for the next generation of cards that should give a better VR experience and bring VR more into the realm of affordability and more quality games with it. If spending less, there is the GTX 1060 6GB card or the 8GB RX 480 and 8 GB RX 470 cards. Digitalfoundry have run some good tests showing the different the 8GB makes in smoothness of game play/with greater texture detail settings/packs. I think the sweet spot, if on a tight budget, is probably the 8GB RX 470 custom cards which, if you overclock, still run fairly quietly and seem a little better for overclocking than some of the RX 480 cards.

Ultimately, digitalfoundry and a few others stopped fudging on the question whether to go for the RX 480 8GB custom cards or the GTX 1060. Initially a lot of sites were saying the GTX 1060 is the better choice in around eight out of ten games but that the AMD option was perhaps better future proofed with driver upgrades and game developer optimisations. This seemed to lead to exasperation from customers who wanted a straight what should I buy now? Most of the reviewers that I follow seem to have gone for the GTX 1060 in their latest custom midrange gaming builds, including digitalfoundry a few days ago. I would probably still go for the RX 470 8GB custom card, overclock it and sell it in18 months time, or if by that time most of the games that I like crossfire well, consider a second card as an option. If you can stretch to a 6GB custom GTX 1060 and don't want to put the money saved toward an SSD, say, or can stretch to a GTX 1070, especially if there is a significant fall in price/game bundles in the run up to Christmas, I would probably go for the latter. For me, without a significant drop in price or game bundle enticement and though I was very impressed with my friends GTX 1070, there wasn't the incentive to pay that much. Check out the reviews of the RX 470 8GB cards vs RX 480 cards when both are overclocked. On paper, looking at the spec, the RX 470 aren't much to write home about. In game play, though, they seem to give the RX 480 cards a run for their money and at least are fairly widely in stock, for the custom versions.
