470/570 gets no love. IMO these are the best bang for buck cards out there!!!

When they launched I have seen a few on Newegg for $169, a lot for $179, now all RX 570 and 580 disappeared somewhere, most are OOS, others are overpriced

I just got an RX570 and it is plenty for 1080p 60 fps. I'll upgrade when I get a better monitor.

if you overclocks a bit it reaches 480 level

With most things tech, it only gets cheaper. However, if you can ONLY wait 1 month, then perhaps, you should take best deal right now. However, if you can wait couple of months, AMD Vega is suppose to hit the streets and it could possibly push down prices of Vid cards further.

If you can stand to wait, I would.

As an above posted already said, $169 was the launch price of several 570 models on Newegg.

I bought two in Houston (59 store) yesterday, there was one left on the shelf. Best I can tell, these cards are very similar to the RX 470 except higher power consumption. BIOS mods and overclocking is not very difficult as the Ethereum miners of the world love the RX 470-580 cards and have cracked these things wide open.

Looks like you can get about 28-30MH/s with this card on ethereum with a modded bios and oc... comparable speeds to the 580 for a about 60-70 bucks cheaper.

Trying to figure out if this is worth me buying my third mining GPU... Any opinions? Or should I wait for a better deal on a 580?

Not in my case, I have been trying the past 2 days. Tried a power hungry (160W) overclocked bios that only hashed about 27. Finally settled on an efficiency (96W) bios I found that hashes around 26. Apparently the RX 470 is king for low watt high hashing power and the RX 570 just cannot do it. Most of my research has found that everyone else has reached the same conclusion. It even has the Hynix memory which is supposed to be the best one for 470's. I think the real coup is going to be all the 470&480's that show up on craigslist when the Vega drops (unless it comes after proof of stake and then ethereum mining as we know is is dead anyway).

No the 570 is just an overclock 470. 480 still benches a little better though it's close.
