Found 29th Jan
I Plan to get a Ryzen CPU on launch. I waited a year to build, so I want to be able to Game when the Ryzen CPU comes out till Vega Releases when I can buy Vega too.

What is the minimum cheapest graphics card that will tide me over until Vega GPU is released 2-4 Months After. I play Gears of War, Battlefield etc.

For obvious reasons I want to spend the minimum on a temp graphics card. Maybe you guys currently have a buget card/ suggestions on what I can go with till Vega.

£180-190 for a 4gb rx480 - good card, cheap, and the 4gb vs 8gb is like 1-3fps at most.

Way, way more than you need to spend though.

If you want to buy new then an RX 460 is a good choice. I'm not sure about second hand prices, maybe a 7770 or 7850 2GB.

you can go for second hand r9 290/290x which are going for less then 140

I can recommend a 290X. Allows 1080p Gaming at pretty much max everything on all games I've tried.

gtx 690 on eBay for £125 good bang for the buck.

I would say get a second hand 970, roughly 150 - 180.

What are you playing Gears of War and Battlefield with and at what resolution?

gt610. nice and cheap!

Buy a 1070. Never wait on AMD.

I just picked one of these up for £130 off the bay... if vega is a fail i will get another 970 for sli.
