Sapphire Radeon RX 460 NITRO 4GB Graphics Card

probably the cheapest current rx 460 4gb model. free delivery with this.

see the 2gb model for just under £90 so for a few extra £££ this is worth it in games that benefit from more video memory

Smokin' hot!

considering the 480 is 149.99 at OCUK this isn't the best deal
lowest you should consider at this point is 470

On a pure price / performance yes, but don't forget this is a relatively low power draw and short card which may be suited to some PC builds. Otherwise cards like the 1050 wouldn't exist

Lol with all the 480 deals atm I misread this thinking it was a 480. That would be a hot deal

You might see some RX 470's at £119 if you are lucky soon, but RX 480 nahhhh.

I've been between this and a 1050ti for a while, but then the 480 came in at £150 and i don't know what to do anymore.

For months now I've watched prices drop from £249 down to £99 and thinking is this a cheap upgrade from my R9 270 2gb card?

It's mostly a sidegrade from a 270. The xtra VRAM would be useful in some games, but we'd (I say we because I'm also using an R9 270!) be MUCH better off getting an RX 470 or 480.

This isnt an upgrade from a 270. This is an RX 460, maybe you're talking about the 480.

Guys, when people are talking about the RX 480, which card are they referring to? I searched on ebay and quite a lot of different models appeared for that model? eg, 3 of them, but there were even more...

And when you mention the price of £150, could you share a link to the specific model and shop to have a look pls?

The only reason to consider a 1050 / 460 is 1) you have a crap 300w psu and can't/won't upgrade, 2) You have a small case and nothing longer will fit (or you need a low profile card), 3) you have the pc in the living room and need it to be silent (1050 fans don't spin till 60 degrees hit)
If you want value for money get the 480 4gb.

I'm still unclear in why are there different cards all called the same, RX 480? ie, do you know a good webpage where I could for example compare what's different between those 3 models listed in the picture I got from ebay?

I'm learning about GPUs at the moment, so I don't quite know where to start yet...

Some will be overpriced, some will be 4 not 8GB, others may have more exotic cooling solutions, you may be paying for the brand name, some may be factory overclocked, etc. But anything with an RX 480 will be an RX 480, they're just not equal. That said, they should all perform strongly regardless.

P.S. The middle one is from the US so expect to add taxes onto that too. Personally I wouldn't buy this kind of stuff on eBay at all.

The asus rx 480 4gb at overclockers is £150 if you havent found it already

Broadly speaking an RX 480 is an RX 480. To save you the immense difficulty in googling [card A] vs [card B], the differences are minor overclocks, the amount of VRAM (4GB or 8GB) and the fans. Performance differences between the cards is negligible. The reason why some cards on ebay are advertised for obscene amounts of money is that some people are stupid enough to buy them.

Yep there's some obscene prices on eBay for used cards.

However don't forget the different brands carry different warranties. Evga, as one example allows you to transfer warranty whereas other makers may not. Some also have terrible warranty repair timelines or you need to send back the card to other countries.

Apart from that you're absolutely correct it's a matter of overclocking, sometimes 4gb vs 8gb, cooling method and fans and finally aesthetics

The basic gpu itself is always the same. And amd or nvidia don't let that aspect be changed at all

How does this compare to my R9 280x? Is there a ranking table somewhere?

Thanks guys, I didn't know they all were kind of the same thing just with a few changes. Is there a big difference between 4GB and 8GB when we're talking about graphic cards? ie, if the price difference is too much, is it really worth it?

A single 480 isn't powerful enough to run bells and whistles at 4k, and I'm guessing you're not thinking of xfiring (which has its own issues but really does need the 8gb cards).
At 1080p you won't notice any difference between them, I'd save £40 and get the 4gb.

More about choosing VRAM here >

4GB of VRAM is more than enough for most video cards today, even at 4K. ... This test has shown that 8GB of VRAM is pretty useless right now, there's just no need. Sure, NVIDIA has a video card with 12GB of VRAM in the Titan X, and 6GB of VRAM on its new GTX 980 Ti, but most of the time it's not needed, even at 4K.13 Jun 2015
How much VRAM do you really need at 1080p, 1440p and 4K?

Thanks. Any idea on what would be a good value upgrade? Do I even need one? I'm running a 1080p monitor and sometimes stream to the Tv.

The toms hardware gpu ranking chart is quite helpful

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/gpu-hierarchy,review-33383.html

Essentially if you upgrade up less than 3 steps you probably won't notice much of a difference

Great find op

Hi can anyone recommend me a graphics card for gigabyte ga-t671mg motherboard, thank you...
