I know this is not a deal and I don't care for the cold voters but I was just giving the heads up as I think this is the first and only AIB Rx 480 card available in the UK. So if you are after this card like me I just wanted to let people know I found it in stock.

That's a hefty bump on reference. the nitro has good reviews, 'available' Friday apparently.

Yea I think the Nitro is worth the wait. I didn't put this up for the hot votes as it's not a deal. I just wanted to give the heads up though that if you where waiting for this card it's in stock.

rather get a 2nd hand 980ti with warranty remaining.

What is pretty annoying with this card is that all through pre order it has had free postage. The moment it comes into stock they smack a tenner postage on it, pretty crappy of them really.

You might get free delivery if you start posting on their forums. If you want to last long enough to qualify for free delivery, abstain from any reference to their "competitors" (i.e. rainforest, shop in bolton, etc)

​Thanks but I don't care that much about them to be a part of their forum to be honest. I have ordered from them a few times but I tend to use Amazon where I can and if I must buy PC parts from somewhere else I've always used Scan. They have always been great with me over the years.

Yeah, I think it stinks. When you are paying this kind of money for the product itself I'm sure they could cover the postage. Like any company they will have deals with at least one if not multiple couriers to get lower rates so the postage won't cost them £10, probably not even £5.

Very high price anyway IMHO for a graphics card that started out as a budget solution, which has now risen to more expensive than the GTX1060. I know it's a special edition and all but still utter price gouging....

The RX 480 Nitro+ 8GB was £240 on scan last time i looked which seems better, said pre order even though changed to in stock a few times as i had one on order but cancelled cause couldnt be bothered waiting and got a gtx 970 for £182

The 970 will serve you well, that's a good price too.

Stupid money for a card that fits in at a very exact price/performance bracket.

$199 they said. Comes with VR they said.

The power of a $500 GPU they said, 2x performance per watt they said.

​the minimum carriage charged in the UK is actually around 9 pounds with most couriers, anything under this is a discount from the seller

​Surely they get heavy discounts with companies that they send hundreds of packages with each day.

That clearly can't be true

That clearly can't be true



​it is actually, different parts of the cost are absorbed by different businesses, but couriers end up with 9 pounds per parcel.
