    msi rx480 8gb is it worth to buy?

    Hi.looking to buy this card. I've been offered for £240.do you reckon is it worth it, considering nitro+ 8gb version is £190ish. I've read few reviews on nitro,but it is a bit hot apparently. I need it for 1080 gaming only but considering 4k capabilities,I think it worth to spend extra ~60-70quid as it is abit more future proof than gtx970.
    Anyway any advice please

    ok what would you reccomend instead

    I have 480 8GB nitro + and its not that hot 71 C in shabby case without OC, and trust me for 1080 you wil don't need any OC with this card. Currently while playing Heroes and Generals my i5-4670 runs hotter than GPU

    The nitro+ is one of the best versions of the RX 480 and if you can get the 8gb version for under £200 thats a bargain.

    It was the version I was going to get but then I found the XFX GTR Black Edition for £208 on black friday.

    mate where are you getting that nitro? still a great price for 8gb Rx 480.

    Nitro for that money is a good buy, benchmarks slightly better than a gtx970 which can be had for similar money 2nd hand.

    Are you sure you don't mean the 4gb for less than 200? 8gb is a absolute steal

    reading a review pitting it against the 1060, and due to updated drivers its supposed to be much better in dx12 games
