I imagine parts cost at least 1.5x more and you can't customize it nearly as much as a regular case.

For more than 30 years, only the most hardcore enthusiasts were able to take advantage of PC customizability. Convoluted hardware made it insane for the average person: knowing what does what, what works with what, and how to connect the pieces.


No offense to Wagner, but he wasn't a hardcore enthusiast, he wasn't even the average person and he was able to build his own pc, he just needed help picking out some parts.

Translation: I'm dumb as shit when it comes to computer things and I built a working gaming PC.

Read an article saying these ran really really hot. Will wait for note on that before I get one.

Don't think, just buy. The card is really interesting. Spec-wise it is just below last generations GTX 980, making it probably at the tail end of top tier, but it is like half of the next card up from it.

Passmark updated their chart to show the GTX 1090, GTX 1070, and RX 480. They show the RX 480 way lower than last years GTX 970 (not what PC Gamer showed)

Chris, how much are R9 390's now that a newer AMD card is coming out?

I thought these were supposed to be better than 970s?

I think they are. PC Gamer actual testing shows RX 480 beats a GTX 970. I admit that I don't really understand how Passmark gets their scores so let's just ignore it.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. I have looked at that passmark before to help determine what to buy... it is so easy to read. I bet they are waiting to get it themselves and stress test it.

This isn't the sort of card where we'd recommend ditching a GTX 970 or R9 390, but if you're using an older GPU like a GTX 760 or R9 765—or anything older/slower than those cards—you could potentially double your performance or more.

I could double my performance or more for $200. In some games RX 480 was beating a GTX 980 and GTX 980ti

You're looking at this so negatively. Double your performance AND you don't have to buy a heater for the winter. Win win. Plus, fire is cool, so win win win.

All of the 8gb versions are sold out on Newegg (didn't look anywhere else), but they have the 4gb for $200 in stock

Early leaks of GTX 1060 say it is 15% more powerful than RX480 and 40% less power. No word on price tho.

GTX 1050 will probably be exactly the same as RX480

That's too many GPUs to keep track of.

Wut?
Nvidia has released GTX 1070 and 1080 already. They are still going to announce/launch their GTX 1050 and 1060.
