This is the cheapest RX 480 4GB I can find (with custom cooling also) for anybody looking for a cheap 480 and doesn't want to spend £200 on the 8GB blower model that was posted here.

£169.99 via economy shipping (free), or you can pay for express services.

Not a bad price given the cost of the 470's and 1060's.

UPDATE:
Ballicom have confirmed plentiful stock.

Really nice design IMO, nice view of heatpipes, backplate included and importantly a nice 8-pin power connection for voltage OC.

The fans unclip easily for maintenance or replacement - no RMA needed for busted fan blades!

Nice features.

wow ok

So many GFX cards coming down. Originally I was going to go for the 8GB version:

hotukdeals.com/dea…595

then some people say this is better then the rx r480 8GB version

hotukdeals.com/dea…214

I think some googling before I decided. Damn!

Have some heat OP

There's no free 3D technologies. If you want to play games in 3D you have to pay for tridef 3D. Nvidea has theirs bundled with the drivers. My only moan from moving to amd, the card is great

Been watching this,it's been going down a couple £'s a day across a range of outlets just like the powercolor the other week.
Hold your nerve it will go lower.

XFX cold. Too many X's

Pair this with a £100-odd freesync monitor and you're have a sweet set-up capable of playing practically everything at 1080 res

oO this is 40 Quid cheaper than average 8GB RX480, but only 3-5fps slower.

Great price, heat added. Only thing I would say is that 8gb cards make a difference at higher resolution gaming. Raises the debate of spending extra £20 or so to increase the longevity of your card if you ever plan on moving to a higher resolution monitor, or having a go with high res texture packs, like the recent fallout 4 one.

Lovely jubbly

Going slightly off topic here, but for anyone looking for a GPU that doesn't need a separate power connector and draws no more than about 75w, is the 1050ti the best option?

Just added some detail to the first post.

+Card is nice looking and has a backplate, good if you have it in view.
+8-pin power connector, to squeeze the life out of the card you can experiment with voltage (they have very good thermal protection so not very risky)
+Clip-off fans, perfect for cleaning the card, or replacing/upgrading the fans, they do LED fans also. I wish my Fury had this (swap) feature...
+Dual BIOS perfect for flashing or running different boost configs.
+VRM cooling, proper thermal pads and heat-sink.
+3 year warranty.

Yep 1050ti is most powerful without supplementary power

Shows how bonkers the prices of graphics cards are when there are 470's at a higher price!

My only concern with this card is that I've seen reviews which say that it runs hot and noisy.

Still at least prices are finally starting to come down. Heat given ;0)

Oh. And I would personally go for the 1050 rather than the Ti version. I think its far better value (although I agree with derp).

These can't be flashed to 8GB anymore can they?

That was only certain reference cards filling the high demand

I can't any find many reviews of the 480 RS, but I did find this video.

Generally advice is to limit the fan speed in wattman to 2,600RPM in which case the card will run (hot, but within spec) at 70-80deg.

I should mention that the card should be completely silent (they spin down to 0RPM) when browsing and not gaming which is a nice benefit.

If you want the cream of the crop, the XFX GTR looks very handy indeed.

Agreed...with a £50 premium!

I'd advise anyone looking at the RX 480s to check out absolutelyhardcoreoverclocking on youtube. Buildzoid's done a few pcb analysis videos (so none for the RX 470)

I'm not in the market for one but this review by JayTwoCents painted it in a very good light!

Does this have led lighting? Tempted to sell my gtx 970 for this.

There's a white LED under the XFX logo, you can otherwise buy the XFX LED fans. Check the link in post #21 for a video.

Interestingly you can buy multiple and save on discount. Anyone interested in a share deal? Buying 2 alone makes the card 140 each 30 cheaper than list price!!

Heat from me.

£169 each, not worth it, sadly. Otherwise I'd be selling up to crossfire it!

​or thr rx 460? i used to have a gtx750ti but got the rx 470. mainly due to freesync. i don't have a freesync monitor yet but maybe in the future.

That's a 460, it showed up in your search results for 480 - always double check what you buy from searches.

How does this stack up against a GTX 1060?

Looks like there's about 3-4 fps difference in favour of the 480. So pretty much nothing to be honest. But the price makes this card far more attractive.

Is this better than a PALIT GeForce 980 GTX OC?

Have a google mate, but unless you're bottle necked I'd suggest waiting. 980 is still a capable card at 1080p.

I'd hold off until Spring.

Ah yeah VAT always screws me over

Don't laugh, but I have a rubbish 4350 radeon thing that is integrated into the mobo and is starting to play up.

I need to replace the graphics card with something else to stop some odd pixelation issue.

If you just wanted to blow just £30 on a used gfx card, what would you get? Something like a Radeon 7750 would easily meet my needs of web browsing, occasional youtube video.

I have an 8gb version of this card and so far I'm really impressed and happy with it.
Why deal shows up as expired? I checked and it is still in stock and available to buy.

Pretty sure this £169.99 won't be honoured ,went out off stock & came back with a stock level that's not changing & price has gone back-up/out of stock at other outlets offering similar prices.

100% OT but I'll save you the trouble. Your upgrade isnt an upgrade, save, wait a bit and buy a nvidia 1050 as cheap as you can. Maybe you find a deal here for one but dont buy less then that really.
If you barely use the PC you can buy almost any card I guess also, I expect your problem is software based though
