Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT GAMING OC $588.76 + Delivery ($0 with Prime) @ Amazon UK via AU


First post on OzBargain. Can't afford one of these, but'd like to help someone who can :)

Have been watching 5700XT prices for awhile now, and I believe this price is moderately good.

Heard from someone that Gigabyte has good local support, given that their office is in Oakleigh South VIC.

Mod Update 30/8: Price has dropped to $588.76

  • Hardware Unboxed gave it a good review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLHP_ubnjfQ

    • As did Gamers Nexus, "Best Overall", narrowly beating the Sapphire Pulse.

      • I think "Best Overall" heavily takes into account price, since the Gigabyte 5700XT is one of the better cards but not at the pricey end. The Red Devil and Nitro+ are superior cards. If the price difference doesn't put you off, I highly recommend the Red Devil - it's an absolute beast. Every game I've played at 1440p has kept at >100 fps, the fans almost never audible, and temps consistently <50°C.

        • If you watch the Hardware Unboxed review of all the 5700xt cards this Gigabyte one is at the top of the list for most of their benchmark testing (framerate, temp etc), even above the Nitro+ and Red Devil. Now that isn't an absolute that this Gigabyte card is better than the Red Devil and Nitro+ but Hardware Unboxed has a great track record for reliable benchmark testing. Red Devil and some of the Sapphire cards are usually cheaper than this Gigabyte OC card which usually is around 750 normally and for that price you are better off seeking a step up for a GTX 2070 super. So at 600, this is even cheaper than the Red Devil and Nitro+ at this moment for basically one of the best 5700xts if not the best if you want to believe Hardware Unboxed testing.

        • I have the red devil too and can vouch for it. So impressed with it.

        • Inaudible fans and lower than 50 degrees , I call BS unless you live in an igloo. No graphics card runs at 50 degrees under load unless it’s on water or you’re playing very light games with low gpu usage. Every review I’ve seen of The red devil runs anywhere between 65-75 at load on the stock fan curve depending on ambient

          Happy to be proven wrong with a screenshot of the temps in afterburner

  • As this is from the UK, do gigabyte offer international warranty?

  • Brought for $600 back in June during the UK Loophole, good as it gets.

  • https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/551197 Bought the MSI Gaming X variant and waiting for the pre-order, anyone has any idea if this is better? Can't seem to find much comparison online between the two.

    • That MSI card is better, but I wouldn't spend the extra imo.

    • The Gaming X is a top tier card above this, https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1046174-graphics-card-c...

    • Seems as if the MSI you linked & other 5700xt's that take the 2 x 8pin power can be OC'd to a higher tier, if you add water cooling - 2200 - 2300+ mhz.

      This Gigabyte card & other's that take the 8+6 pin power top out at around 2100Mhz, limited by the power draw available, no extra cooling required, therefore approximately $200 less in total ($50+ for the GPU difference + $150 for a cheapish GPU only water-cooler).

      This is just my guess btw, nobody of note, or otherwise seems to have stated it. HardwareUnboxed could only push their reference (8+6 pin) model to almost 2100mhz water-cooled, while others seem to get the ROG Strix (8+8) up to 2300+ water-cooled.

      Also of note, I recently sold my MSI RTX 2070 (non-super) Gaming Z - the software that MSI requires the installation of, just to turn the lighting off on the card, is invasive and overly comprehensive & is enough to turn me off MSI cards.

  • Cheers OP, good looking out, appreciated :)

    Anyone else getting a ridic window for shipping, or had one similar to this that they can give me the reality on:

    Estimated delivery: Aug 28, 2020 - Oct 14, 2020
    (This is the most expensive of the 3 shipping options btw).

    • Yea but it's always overestimated

    • Not worth getting as we will have new options at least announced by Nvidia before October.

      • It’s august
        we have to wait for announcement
        Then we have to wait for production
        Then we have to wait for non reference cooling

        If you need one now you can either buy one and use it or wait for who knows how long

        • I never understand why everyone thinks ANNOUNCEMENT means = All cards will be released immediately on the date.

          Reference cards are not everyone's cup of tea, and even then, I ain't about to blow $2000 on a 3080.

          • @dbmitch: Nvidia announcements coming September 2nd, AMD announcements shouldn't be too far away after that. Patience is a virtue. The poor man buys twice.

          • @dbmitch: $2000???? I'd say a bit more than that!!

            • @TilacVIP: 3080 799 usd.

              • @John Doh: Not sure where you got that price from but I highly doubt the 3080, which is touted to be faster than the 2080 Ti will be at that price.

                • @TilacVIP: 3090 1399USD
                  3080 799USD
                  3070 599USD
                  3060 399USD

                  These are the prices mentioned by almost all of the major tech websites based on the leaks. If a 3080 costs more than 2080ti just becuase its faster than 2080ti, then according to that theory, the the 3090 is 10 times faster than a card that was released 6 years back for 300USD @4k resolution. Will it cost 3000USD?

                  Pricing does not work like that. Every generational increment, you get a slight bump in price(depending on competition) and a little MORE bump in the performance compared to previous generation.

                  For example, 980Ti released for 649+$ and 2 years later, 1070 was released for approx 400$ and was much faster than 980ti. So expect the 3070 to beat or be as fast as the 2080Ti with RTX and DLSS set to max at 4K.

            • @TilacVIP: Yeah, you're right mate, at least 3k :)

    • I placed my order back on 16th August, mine was just shipped yesterday fwiw.

  • Any recommendations on mobo & CPU to accommodate this card?

    X570 I'm thinking as it does PCIe 4.0 all the way & I can pop a 4.0 nvme drive in as soon as they drop to a real price. Seems like the way forward?

    No idea tbh on CPU bang for buck atm, I know I'm not waiting for the 4/5000 series though, so it's whatever is going nowish that won't bottleneck this GPU running @ 2100 OC'd @ 4000mhz CL16 RAM.


    • B550 and 3600

    • There are eBay deals that usually pair either a B450 or B550 board with the Ryzen 5 3600 for a cheaper price which might be worth looking into. I bought the card too myself but I plan to wait for better B550 deals as they are a little over priced atm in my opinion. That's why I recommend looking for a bundle deal if you can.

      • Cheers mullman. Do you mean a CPU & mobo combo that includes just the 2 items can be had at a reasonable price?
        Any benefit in your opinion to going X570 for the 4.0 chipset and/or Ryzen 7 3700X for what looks like a small premium over the R5 3600?
        Diminishing returns perhaps?

        • What I meant is sometimes on here there are cpu/mobo combos that are fairly cheap but after a quick look it seems like all the good deals have expired. If you can find an x570 that is in the same price range of a b550 then maybe but otherwise it's not worth it. x570 boards, especially here in Australia, are more expensive than a majority of b550 boards. As for your question about PCI-e 4.0 chipsets, b550 boards come with one pci-e 4.0x16 and the rest are 3.0 whereas x570 has all 4.0 slots. But pci-e 4.0 at this point is more of a future-proofing thing in terms of gpus. Even this 5700xt card boasts performance gains from pci-e 4.0 but I doubt it's that much at all. For reference, not even 4k gaming can overload a pci-e 3.0 slot. The whole pci-e 4.0 thing will only greatly benefit hardware like SSDs. Here is a good video on B550 vs x570 if you want more info. As for 3600 vs 3700x obviously the 3700x is superior as you are going from 6 cores, 12 threads to 8 cores, 16 threads. But it depends on you and your budget, what type of games you'll be running and at what resolution etc etc..But 3600 is more than enough for gaming at this stage.

  • Is it really wise to be buying a $600 video card when new cards are mere months away? Might be able to get similar performance with ray tracing support at the mid end price range.

    • I've asked myself this same question for months and I'm leaning towards yes. The card in question is probably top 3 5700xt cards and at $600 that is pretty good value for money. We are likely to see a price cut with these cards around September-November (that's the rumoured window of the new line of AMD and NVIDIA cards) BUT considering the pandemic is still very much influencing the global market, I wouldn't put much stock into a big price cut from these cards or the 2070/Super. In relation to waiting for stuff like ray tracing support on the new AMD cards (which is likely to happen due to Xbox Series X and PS5 AMD RDNA2 cards supporting ray tracing) you can certainly wait for this. However, I would like to add that ray tracing itself is a future technology, one that will come into play maybe a year or two from now, not as much in this new series of cards. NVIDIA boasted a hefty library of games for PC that would support ray tracing with their 20xx RTX cards but they didn't completely deliver that. With that being said, it is clear from the new consoles that AMD has many games that support ray tracing but that doesn't mean it'll be supported for PC just yet.

      • You make some good points. The pandemic does put a spin on things when you factor in the usual stock issues, RRP price inflation along with the pandemic, I think even getting them will be a challenge until a fair way into 2021. With that said though, this generational leap is not like any in over a decade, the consoles are up there with the current generation of video cards in a box likely costing less than $1000. So I get the feeling the 5700XT, 2070 Super, etc will sooner become obsolete video cards (unlike say the 1070/1080 which were still decent through-out RTX). Personally I think buying video cards now even at a discount isn't a good idea (unless you need one right now for reasons). I'd also prefer a ray-tracing supported GPU going forward if consoles are going to be pioneering that technology.

        • You could be right, we'll know at least from Nvidia in around 10 days but this hype for huge leaps in performance is the same every generation. I'd be amazed if either of them delivered quantum leaps in performance gains without similar price increases. People are also putting a lot of faith into consoles having an impact, I don't think we have access to any data one way or another but I suspect there is less of a relationship between console performance and whether people are buying video cards or not.

      • I am still regretting not buying this in December last year when it was around $560 with a 512gb SSD via the promotion Gigabyte was running. Now it's $590-$600 and no SSD

        • I bought a 2080TI last year, in June for $1350 new. Now you can't one for much less than $2k. It's like that time I got 30 eggs for $2 from Coles. I'll never stop talking about it :-D

    • I'm hearing Nvidia September announcement, October release, 3090 $2000AUD, expected 2080ti x 150% power.
      AMD Q4 (December?) release, RDNA2 $???, expected RDNA x 150% power.

      So unless you've got 2k to drop on a GPU in a month's time, $600 now is a solid price until RDNA2 releases next year and at a proportionate price to this @ $600 ($750 not on sale) now. N.B. just a guess, bearing in mind similar architecture based on a similar die size between RDNA 1 & 2.

      • To be clear - expected price for 3090 could be A$3,000 (US$1,499 for FE) + taxes + duties + whatnot…(not $2,000)

      • Nvidia lineup of prices expected to be like this:

        3060 $400 USD
        3070 $600 USD
        3080 $800 USD
        3090 $1400 USD

        If you add the conversion + tax + high demand and low stock. Us Aussies are going to see overpricing for awhile.

        Here's hoping AMD to bring the competitive pricing per watt vs Nvidia cards.

        Rumor had it this generation for Nvidia will not beat AMD on efficiency to relative performance due to being on higher die node.

        Regardless this generation we should see at least 30% more performance across the board so I believe it's worth the wait.

  • Interesting

    We're also having discounted RAM, discounted PSU

    Tempted to see which one of the below two is better, Intel of AMD

    Any recommendations/suggestions/opinions?!?!

    (With PSU 600w + 32GB RAM ($99 + $158) from same shoppingexpress, these would be approx below 2K

    • Buying an aftermarket cooler for the 3700X isn't really worth it right? You could probably knock off $155 from the price unless you were doing serious overclocking

      • oh, yes I do, sometimes 🥴
        but you're right, I don't do it quite often👍

        and maybe Cooler Master Hyper 212 is enough (as I'm having a spare one)

    • Get the AMD build. Change the case to the Mesh version TD500. Non mesh TD500 is going to bake your components.

    • +5 votes

      The AMD 3700 isnt really worth it over the 3600. An expensive after market cooler is pointless unless you're overclocking heavily. You dont need 32GB of memory unless you're doing photoshop/video editing. 16GB is fine. That X570 board has little going for it over a B550. An 850W PSU is overkill. 600W or so for around $100 is fine.

    • I'd go AMd system. Don't worry about aftermarket cooler as you'll get the prism cooler with the cpu. Could get a lower power supply 650w. Then use the money saved for an m2 drive.

    • I've got 3 votes for AMD, but still I'm looking at the userbenchmark.com and seeing a different thing, Intel system is performing better?
      For nearly the same price 😬

      I do overclock sometimes…

      And, thanks all for advice and suggestions, appreciated! 👍

      • Userbenchmark is not a reliable place for information regarding the comparison between Intel an AMD. The results always skew wayyyy to heavily towards Intel. That being said, the 10600k is a better CPU if the only goal is to game on a high refresh rate monitor. However, depending on whether or not you think games will utilise more than 6 cores within the lifetime of your PC usage, I guess you could make the arguement that the 3700x may end up being better in a couple years but tbh I reckon that is slightly far fetched, but idk depends what the situation is with next gen consoles.
        If I was you, I would take the 3700x, because even though I don't really do any creative tasks that are core intensive at the moment, I may in the future, an i just dont see a relatively small percentage benefit in fps being worth the tradeoffs. Thats just my 2cents though.

  • Solid first post

  • Is this better than the asus tuf x3 oc rx5700???

  • man i am so ready to pull the trigger….

  • So I am looking to build my first PC, here are the parts so far, wonder if someone can suggest the missing part for best performance/compatibility? Thanks! building mid level gaming pc

    Budget is under $2000 if possible.

      • Should be able to get CL16 3600mhz RAM for that price & 16GB is enough, for gaming. Spend the difference on that cheap B550 steel legend mobo listed here on OZB :)

        • Sweet, any recommended basic case with dust filter, looking to upgrade the cooling system later on when budget allow where I can add liquid cooling on the top.

  • Question about shipping - if I were to buy 2, I'd have to pay an import tax fee of about $80. Buying them one at a time is a way around this, but will they eventually calculate it and charge me the import fee regardless?

  • Note that this is v1, revision 2 though, apparently nothing has changed?..

  • So does this offer international warranty and im nervous is it $605 outright no duty fees?

  • First post but thought I'd flag this:

    For anyone considering this see Mwave deal for $649 plus postage ($15 for me).

    Although $50 more, it comes with 2 free games.

    "Bonus Godfall and World of Warcraft Shadowlands via Redemption"

    If you wanted either game its a similar deal, if you'd like both it's good:


  • How do you get Free delivery? I have Prime and i still have to pay $22 shipping?

  • Does anyone know whats the difference between Rev1 Vs. Rev2? I just ordered this and I can confirm The Final Price is indeed 588.76 AUD (Including GST) and Free Delivery.

  • Just want to say I ordered when this deal was first posted on the 22nd of August. It was not yet shipped, and I was able to cancel it and re-order it for $20 less.

    However, it may be a long time until you receive this via Amazon UK.

    • that's exactly what I did, not too sure when it will be shipped. I was thinking of cancelling the order since you can get the rtx 3070 for $806 in about a month

      • You don't think pricing will be inflated and supply will be severly restricted? Also the negatives with being an early adopter; reference cards, driver issues?

        Depends if you want it now vs next year I suppose

        • That's true, I need one asap so might keep this until early next year. I've seen from another post that items from Amazon UK ship in about 3 weeks

    • I hope it wasn't a mistake ordering from Amazon UK!

  • luckily i didn't order this… seeing how everybody is getting the product delayed!

    • I’m not unhappy with the delivery delays anymore. I feel like I’ve locked one in at $588 while I wait to see what happens post Nvidia release. If it turns out there’s a price drop I can easily cancel my current order and probably have time.

      • very true regarding the sudden price change.

        So actually i first ordered this and 2 days after i ordered this i found a brand new Red Devil 5700XT on FB market (which i think was pretty decent priced) so i ended up getting that straight away instead of waiting for this Gigabyte one.

        but now i want the new 3080 lol.

  • has this been shipped out yet for anyone? my other items from amazon UK have been sent using DHL express so only takes about 3-5 days once shipped

    • Edit: wrong thread

    • so mine was shipped today and they used Australia Post Global instead of DHL. won't be seeing this till another month atleast by the looks of it.
