Buying a Graphics card from America

8
Posted 14th Dec 2019
Afternoon All I Found a good deal on Ebay for a graphics card a Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB for around £315 after being converted to pounds. I am hoping to grab one but my main concern is if it gets stopped by customs any saving I make is lost and probably will lead to the card costing me more. Has anyone ordered a card from America before and had the luck of avoiding additional charges. Just looking for any advice or experience with it,

considering going for this one ebuyer.com/921…als

But that isnt an XT is there a big difference between the 5700 and 5700 XT
There's not a lot of difference performance wise between the 5700 and the XT for the saving that could be made.

How does the warranty work if buying from the US?

I've always had EVGA cards and think I can remember buying a card from the US many years ago and it wasn't covered by EU warranty.

No probs, you too
Don't do it. You'll get hit for VAT + Customs + Handling fee!!

I agree with this. Usually you can find a 5700XT whenever eBuyer do their eBay 10 or 20% off code and I think there's one currently going on
