Keep checking guys they come back in stock often.
Good chance they are ex mining cards
Hey @Cunning-Stunts quick Q, if you’d be kind enough to answer: which of these cards would be best for VR?
The RX 470 is the most expensive (I presume because of the 8GB), but there are cards with higher numbers for less.

(I AM that ignorant when it comes to this stuff, I assume that higher numbers are better!)
I guess this wouldn't be great against current gen gaming at 1080p?

By the looks neither as I believe VR would need at least one HDMI output and these are the older type of connection

I’m thinking of using the Oculus Link to connect my Quest to the PC.
I believe that’s USB 3?
Only dvi?

Only dvi?


ONLY DVI on this model

Keep that in mind before purchase!
It will probably work fine as a gaming card on a single monitor, but you're not going to get multiple displays out of it.

Pretty much a 100% chance these ones are, as it's a mining-focused model (hence the single DVI output).
no hdmi so it be crap
Can this be used for an egpu?

Hello buddy, sorry had to go out right after posting these deals and not long got home, none of them would be ample enough for VR to have a smooth and high detailed experience. You would need something more substantial for that, and as I have not tried VR myself although want to the only advice I can give is to look on youtube for some reviews and google for benchamarks regarding fps etc.

Kind regards

I forgot to say, this will give you excellent gaming performance at 1080p with some settings maxed out and put shadows to low or medium, push textures to max because it has 8gb vram and that really makes a big difference to how good a game looks. Oh and use the latest drivers from amd's website. The software from the drivers is great as you get a detailed overlay on games if you want that shows you fps, vram useage etc

You may need to buy a dvi to hdmi adapter but no biggie as they are cheap on ebay, it may even come with one.

Thanks @Cunning-Stunts I’m just being lazy, I need to do the hard work and learn about all this stuff again. I’ve got a thrown-together PC with old parts that’s good enough for my lad. But my goal is to spec it up enough to drive MS Flight Sim through the Quest.

Ideally without having to do an entire new build. I’ll get my head down :-).

Thanks again all!
Any good for converting movie files and converting rips to mp4 etc?

Always thought conversion is done by the cpu and not by the video card
Is mining going down hill? Was it really a good thing by any chance?

There's only so far down you can go before the pressure becomes too much to bear.
Shaneee10/06/2020 17:56

no hdmi so it be crap


It was a mining card, doesn't make it crap.

Nope, would be great. This is a brilliant card for the money.

Very droll
How can an RX470 in mid 2020 for £79.99 be considered a good deal? I bought a refurb 8gb RX580 on eBay 6 months ago for less than this

Was it refurb from sapphire with 12 months warranty?
No was an ASUS with 6 month warranty.... even still, based on that I would say that £79.99 is probably just about right for an RX470 brand new and maybe £64.99 for a refurb.
