GIGABYTE Radeon RX 580 Gaming 8GB $299 + Delivery @ PC Case Gear

171

8GB card - if this includes the two games then it would be one of the better value cards on the market for mid-range build.

Not confirmed if it qualifies for the two games promo Raise the Game Promotion Details (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/416951), but PCCG is on the list of retailers in the promo.

    If they are a listed retailer then the games promo applies

    Have this card, it's fantastic. I got mine during the mining boom, so can't comment on the price, but the performance is fantastic. I only game in 1080p which this card is awesome for.

    •  

      In your experience does this run hot/noisy?

      •  

        Not in my experience. But I game with headphones on so I don't really hear anything. Like anything these days, having a good case/fans for good airflow is always going to help. I've got a Ryzen 5 1600 in my setup. All air cooled with 2 big ol fans on the case creating negative air pressure.

        The Gigabyte software isn't amazing but it's good enough to work with overclocking and increasing fan curves etc. I have a 144hz monitor that I get about 200fps on a lot of sports games.

        Yes, you'll regret buying this GigaByte model. If you must buy an RX580, look for the Sapphire SE, or the Asus ROG cards.

    I would buy a used mining card that comes with a receipt (typically still 1.5 - 2yrs warranty left). price around $150 - $180 for rx 580 on the used market.

    •  

      Think it becomes a trade off decision between values of the two games vs the value of the partially reduced warranty.

      I can confirm eBay used RX580 8GB have been selling for $210~$230 for the last two weeks.

      $150~$180 would have been for a 4GB card

    I have the Aorus Version of this ( A better Version with better cooling) bought from PC case gear with the same price- 299AUD. It is very hot and noisy. It can never run at full speed it advertised.This is a bad one be cautious.

    •  

      And yes you will get the games. Just contact the customer service. They are great.

    •  

      Thank you. This is really useful info to take into consideration. Kills the deal for me…

      •  

        Now it is the cheapest rx580 8G though. So if you are in a hurry you may still buy it.

        •  

          The big question is whether Navi will change the economics on $ per frame metric for this range. Without competition the nVidia side doesn't really have any pressure to make it cheaper. Such a long wait!

    •  

      Anyone knows if this could be undercoated to run quietly?

    •  

      I have that card too and I've never found a need to run it at 100% fan speed. Each to their own. 60%-ish speed at full load has been fine for me performance/noise wise, anything above that and you'll hear a jet plane taking off. You can setup a manual fan curve to your own needs to help mitigate the noise.

    •  

      Have you tried to see if the card is faulty?
      Check your voltages?
      Check the thermal paste to see if its dry and change it if need be?
      Or RMA the card

      •  

        I even tried turning down the voltage. It only helps a little bit. You can find many similar reviews on Amazon.com. It is not only me.

        •  

          If you are not happy ask for a refund? Get a different card. If Its not meeting the factory specs its an issue.

          Then again look at the GTX970 lol but they won the court case on that card.

          •  

            @aussieprepper: I think returning the card is not allowed as long as it is "working"?

            •  

              @theabyss: I have heard people on here say you can return the product if it doesn't meet your requirements/specs? So say you bought the card thinking it can clock to 1400mhz as it says on the box/online but it can not do that for what ever reason i think you can return it.

              I mean would you have bought the card if you knew it doesn't do what it says?

      •  

        It's not a specific card. I returned my first new unit to the store and exchanged it for another, only to find the second card the same. In the end I sold it to a miner as he didn't care about the noise.

    •  

      Completely agree, Gigabyte really screwed up with their RX580 cooling config. The Sapphire & Asus ROG RX580 cards, are far quieter & cooler running.

    However the heat issue is a deal breaker for me also!
