For those wondering, it's more or less equivalent to the GTX 1060 6GB.

Not a bad price but you can find 8gb versions for £20-£30 quid more

Was £203 on Amazon few weeks back. Still a good price and near RRP for the RX 580. Think it's a fantastic card for the money, it runs very cool, the design of the shroud, heatsink and fan look great (nice textured carbon-fibre finish). I didn't bother with the extra 4GB of RAM as I don't think you can really utilise it on something with this performance and got a Vega 56 for the main gaming PC from Amazon Black Friday for £389.99.

There's very little reason to go for the 8Gb version unless you plan on using crossfire, the few games that might need more memory at ultra textures etc need top end cards to perform decently at those settings Btw beware early benchmarks as there was a bug in the drivers, recent benchmarks show the 4Gb only a couple of frames behind the 8Gb which wouldn't be noticable in game.

And the 1060 uses less power and is quieter, so probably worth going for that if you can get it at a similar price.

But will it run Crysis...?

Just gone up by a £10 so now £229.97!

I pre-ordered a "SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 570 PULSE ITX 4 GB GDDR5 DP/HDMI/DVI-D Graphics Card - Black" from Amazon in September, which has just been dispatched yesterday. Costing me £156.51.

Worth keeping? Or should I pay a little more for more value for money?

Would it be worth an upgrade on a gtx 970

In a word, no.

You've got a great deal on that 570.The 2 cards are in the same performance bracket; the 580 is not 33% faster; 20% in the best scenarios, and more often than not around 10/15; all in all they are both great 1080 cards that can easily venture in 1440 with some compromises/less demanding titles. I'd keep the 570 and save the difference.

Definitely keep that - it's just about all the card you'll need. You lose a little bit of cooling ability by having the ITX version but as the other poster said, it's not worth the difference between this and the RX 580 - they are actually the same silicon just binned and clocked differently (small segment is disabled on the 570).

R9 290X chucks out a bucket-load of heat, like 275W TDP vs. 150W-ish for this card.

That was the Sapphire RX 580 Pulse 8GB. I know because I got one for £102.50.

Reference design sure. But no body buys reference design cards...

The TDP doesn’t change for non-reference cards, just the cooler, if anything the TDP goes up as there are lots of OC cards. A different cooler doesn’t change the TDP or waste heat dissipated.

Lots of people buy reference cards
