Update 5/14/19: Best Buy lowered the price even further to $178.99 plus two free games. Previously, we reported the sale price to be $199.99.
With so many PC games out there to enjoy, you may be thinking it's time to upgrade or build a new computer.
Starting on May 12th and for a limited time, Best Buy will have the MSI AMD Radeon RX 570 ARMOR OC 8GB GDDR5 graphics card marked down to $178.99 (originally $309.99). Free shipping is available, or you can opt for free in-store pick-up where available.
As an added bonus, Best Buy also offers two free games with purchases of select AMD graphics cards.
Currently, Best Buy will throw in Tom Clancy's The Division 2 Gold Edition and World War Z. You can redeem the titles via download after purchase. That's already an extra value of around $135.
Is the MSI AMD Radeon RX 570 Worth It?
The RX 570 is an older mid-range graphics card, but the folks at AMD have done a great job future proofing the product. In tests against the newly released NVIDIA GTX 1650, the Radeon RX 570 still performs 10% to 35% better than its rival depending on which game you're playing.
And with this sale, budget gamers can expect more bang for their buck with AMD's GPU.
There is also an important myth to address about AMD and its competitor Intel. Some claim that Intel CPUs and AMD graphics cards won't work with each other, much like Captain America and Iron Man in 2016. But that simply isn't true.
So don't worry if your computer is equipped with an Intel CPU. Like Captain America and Iron Man in 2019, they'll get along fine.
Are You Equipped to Game?
The MSI AMD Radeon RX 570 is a GPU with a lot of power, but you may need a new monitor in order to reach its full potential.
