[eBay Plus] BIOSTAR AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB $296.65, ASUS Expedition Radeon RX570 OC 4GB $194.65 Free Shipping @ Tech Fast Au eBay

900
PLUSIT15

Another historical low price for the AMD RX 580. Sick of seeing all the GPU deals yet?

If you're still HODL onto your GPU's from 4+ years ago, it's a pretty decent upgrade. The RX 580 is roughly equivalent to a GTX 1060, but with advantage of having Freesync (which is a feature found on many monitors now) and an extra 2GB memory buffer.

Be sure to also claim the free games from AMD Raise the Game Promotion

which would be Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey, Strange Brigade and Star Control: Origins

    damnit, paid $30 less for a 4gb edition. oh well.

  •  

    holy shiz! i have a 1080.. and i feel like buying this because i have a v-sync monitor and i could use the extra cash from selling my 1080 to upgrade other stuff :)

      Do you mean FreeSync?

      • +12 votes

        Nvidia sync technology is called N-Sync.

      •  

        yes i meant freesync.. my mistake

    • +1 vote

      That would be a very big downgrade. Freesync is nice, but with 1080 you can probably just play at 144hz and be done with it. You do not need freesync if your GPU can just to the max framerate all the time.

      So the 1080 is around 600 now new. You will sell yours for 450 as it is SC, you will pay 200 for this one… you are left with 250 and a lot less power. Are you sure it is worth it? If you would buy a card now with 600 AUD compared to this one 200 AUD then sure excellent idea. But selling your existing card to downgrade… not surue it is such a good idea.

      •  

        thanks for the excellent advice.. 1080 will stay :)

    the seller doesn't participate in promotion hahahahahaha no deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Is that what the seller said?

      •  

        I can see the 'pay ony…' and the 15% off code. I haven't bought anything, but looks like it would work to me.

        yeah I bought a 570 from them before and were told they are not in for the game, so returned my card

      But why is it so funny to you?

      •  

        it's funny because later I bought a msi rx570 8g for 216 from msy , and got the free games!

        •  

          The 8GB version went that low? I paid that for the 4GB version…

          @Yuri Lowell:
          mate you just need to comeback to ozbargain everyhour to secure every deal

    •  

      previous deal post someone got their keys from TechFast, so what's the actual situation?

      •  

        Got my code. Just waiting on the card now.

    •  

      You sure about that? https://imgur.com/dF8jwQm

  •  

    I didn't HODL, but I did LetGatherDust from a HD6970 - would I likely need a mobo upgrade as well to utilise the newer technoogy?

    • +3 votes

      PCIe (the slot where GPUs go) is completely backwards compatible generation to generation, so you should be totally fine in terms of the card working in your system so long as you have the power connector(s) for it (which you probably do coming from a 6970).

  •  

    Isn't there new GPU's coming out Q4 of this year? (Nvidia?)

    The 1060 is already 2 years old, I feel odd spending $300~ on something is as fast as a two year old card.

    • +1 vote

      In just a few days, yes. RTX 2080 will release first, then only a few months down the track will we get the lower end GTX 2060.

      EDIT
      Kotaku has said today that the RTX 2080 will be delayed by a week.

      •  

        Any release date for the 2070 yet?

      •  

        Will 2060 be enough for 1440p ultra gaming.

      •  

        The 2080ti will be delayed, the 2080 should remain the same.

    •  

      AMD are releasing 7nm GPU/CPU next year. Not sure about this year.

  •  

    then HODL some more.. prices to be slashed further.. MSY has a clearance shop dont they? where to sell old stock

  •  

    Will this be a good replacement for 780ti? Running 1080 still?

    • +2 votes

      HODL and wait for new 7nm cards. 780Ti still okay for 1080p

      Or just upgrade your monitor first.

    •  

      No, just no. This is not an upgrade is a sidegrade from your 780ti.

  •  

    I switched from a 670 to a 1060 kind of wish I went to team red, guess I can flip my card for a RX570/580

    •  

      Why? I had the same dilemma and went the nVidia card. They run a bit cooler and performance was better than the equivalent AMD card. I got my 1070 for $600 during the crypto mining boom. Was running a AMD 390x before that.

      • +2 votes

        570/580 generally better with DX12 and Vulkan and more games are using that so it's probably the better card in the long run now. I would've said 1060 a couple of years ago but now I feel AMD has taken the crown for the budget gaming cards. Also if you have a Freesync monitor then AMD is definitely the better choice.

        •  

          That is true, AMD do age better. Freesync is def cheaper and overall AMD is cheaper to get good quality gaming.

          I have just picked up a g-sync monitor. Cost a fortune but probably cheaper than selling the 1070 and buying both.

          I am stuck on the green team for now. Then again the gfx card will last me a while as I am happy to downgrade image quality.

        •  

          They do not age better. See the latest tests, Nvidia aged better for the latest generation. Let's say this is no longer a concern in the last 2 years.

          I am not a Nvidia fanboy, I would gladly give my money to AMD or Intel, but I am not paying Vega prices…

          I agree with the rest of the stuff.

      •  

        Still running my 390x.
        Waiting for 9th gen CPUs and benchmarks for 20's.
        May end up just getting a ti on the cheap

        • +1 vote

          390x is still a top card. Biggest issue for me was temps. Ran very hot.

    • +1 vote

      I'd take a 4gb 570 over a 3gb GTX 1060, which you can't even have at this price! great price for a great card to last a couple years

  •  

    Would the free games be worth selling?

    •  

      Depends. They are mostly full priced games. Strange Brigade and Star Control are both Steam keys. AC Odyssey may be a Uplay key though.

  •  

    Would it make sense to use either of these in an ITX case or would it be better to stick with a blower-style card? Would love to get Star Control: Origins too but not sure if this deal/seller is eligible.

  •  

    I got a strix Rx580 8Gb, best card i've had for the price, haven't tried it on anything from this year but GTA5 1440p everything high runs at 60, I don't play MP so I guess 60 is pleb level for the l33t gamer crews who complain about anything less than [email protected] the RX580 is a killer card regardless of brand.

    Massive props to the seller:

    New message from: techfastau Top Rated Seller
    Good morning,

    The Expedition Radeon RX570 is currently out of stock but we will upgrade you to the ROG Strix OC version free of charge.

    Though the listing for the Expedition is still showing as in-stock.

    •  

      the ROG Strix version is better than Expedition. If you're offered this upgrade I would go ahead.

      •  

        Yes sorry should've been more clear - I accepted it with no question, hence massive props to the seller.

  •  

    So out of this deal (with the 4gb strix), the rx 570 with 8gb from pcmeal, or the rx 580 strix for $322.15, which is better? They are all good value at these prices - the rx 580 will perform slightly better, and the 8 gb cards may be slightly more future proof, but is the 8gb gigabyte 570 better than the 570 strix (same price point), oris the 580 worth 122 dollars more?

    All these options will come with the 3 games.

    I’m replacing a gx460 in a 2600x Ryzen system I just built. It’s for my kids who are just getting into gaming and I expect this to last a few years - maybe a GPUs upgrade in a couple of years if necessary.

    Thanks for your help.

      The VRAM is not a huge issue. If you are only gaming at 1080p resolution, 4GB of VRAM is enough for most people and games nowadays are held back by the console platform — they are always designed in mind of console hardware limitations so you won't find that many games asking you have a 8GB VRAM card.

      It's almost the RX5xx 8GB cards existed solely for the purpose of crypto-mining as mining is very memory dependent.

      But since the price difference between 4 / 8GB VRAM cards are so small it's almost negligible, I would just get the 8G cards as they will have better resale value down the track…

      As for RX 580 vs RX 570, there is roughly 10 to 15% difference in performance note this graph is very old so it's no longer accurate, but will still show the gap between the two cards. But going by this, the RX 570 is the sweet spot and is a good buy for most people.

      •  

        Thanks. I figured the if price difference would be negligible then the 8gb would probably be the way to go. I just wanted a second opinion on that.

        I guess the additional performance from the 580 is something only I can put a value on. Certainly the frame rates for either would satisfy my kids and when/if it becomes limiting I guess I will upgrade anyway. Is 10 - 15 % worth $122 - probably not, but that’s subjective. I guess they can always use my pc if they need more performance, and when it comes time to upgrade I’ll replace my GPU and give it to them….
