I just saw an RX 560 4GB available to order on Amazon for $120, so I grabbed it. It's not actually in stock until Mon Jul 17 though. This is the Gigabyte one; Asus and Sapphire aren't available.

I'm still not sure whether getting a 570 instead would be worth it, but it's not in stock so whatever. I have almost a week left to cancel before it ships anyway in case I change my mind by then.

I saw a 570 in stock very briefly on Prime Day for like $230 (list price). I saw it too late to get a chance to even see whether it was eligible for any Prime discounts before it disappeared. I think $230 seems too high for that card, shouldn't it be more like $170? I think the 580 is probably worth about that much.


all of amd's gpus are heinously overpriced at the moment because of the cryptocurrency meme

you're right about the 570 and 580, they're not really worth today's makret prices

how urgently do you need to upgrade, anyway

it might be worth considering waiting4vega‚,,Ę to see if it shifts prices downwards across the industry
Well, it was Prime Day, so that RX 570 might've actually been at a good effective price if I had been able to check. Maybe it matched the ~$180 MSRP after Prime "discount", maybe it was even lower like $160. It's pretty typical for a sale like Prime Day to raise the base price of an item only to make a sale look more appealing than it is. It was shipped and sold by Amazon, not a third-party seller.

I don't really care enough to get a 580 and especially not Vega. Vega might even outdo what my PSU can comfortably handle. As far as I can tell, 560 significantly outperforms the PS4 and 570 beats the PS4 Pro, so that's good enough for me. I'm sticking to 1080p60 for what very little 3D PC gaming I'll ever do, so 570 would probably be ideal.

i wasn't suggesting buying a vega card (i certainly wouldn't and my psu couldn't handle it either lol), but rather waiting a few weeks to see if the release of vega shifts the prices of the 500 series downward

if you do urgently need to upgrade, though, then $120 for a 560 isn't too bad

I really doubt Vega will affect the pricing of these lower-end cards.

The stock situation is bad enough that I have little reason to believe I'll get another chance in the near future. It's not like I need it right now, but I'd rather not wait months.

I believe the price I got is not driven up by demand, that's MSRP. AMD says it's $100, manufacturers turned that into $110 with the custom cooler and overclocking (that every single card happens to have), and they raise it further to $120 for the 4GB version.

having just taken a look at the 560's historical pricing, you're right, that's about as good as it gets

RX Vega is currently benching around the 1080, at $500. It's not that bad of a deal, considering a 1080 is still retardedly expensive, ti or otherwise.

but that power draw myface;

and the fact that it's still technically weaker than the 1080 which has by now been available for over a year lol

Snowy

I might, or might not have bought a new computer case with tempered glass and RGB fans, along with GSkill Trident Z ram. sillydood;

[spoiler]the case also has a riser mount so I can vertically mount my GPU to further show it off. AWESOME[/spoiler]

noice srsly

my pc has such poor æsthetix in comparison lol

i have to wonder how much rgbifying your entire system must have cost you lol sillydood;

Snowy

The case and RAM together were $300. My GPU was $500 when I bought it, but 99% of aftermarket GPUs are RGB nowadays. I think my water cooler was... $175? My mobo has built in RGB stuff as well, but it's only the line down the side anyways.
