I received an email today stating that Microcenter has the Asus version of the RX580 on sale and paired with a $20 rebate, bringing the price down to $299.

At this moment, the Dallas store shows to have 10+ in stock.

Good luck!

Not really. Not for $300. Wait until the mining bubble pops and get a 1070 for $350-400, that'll be a substantial update.

ps I am so stressed trying to figure out parts to get. some say when not needing gaming, only needing occasional video editing, just get a 1050 ti. some say get 1060. some say 16gb is fine, some say dont dare get under 32 (which is VERY expensive now). Some say get samsung b-die ram only. Some say hynix is fine. Some say hynix is fine only for intel. People are all over the place so I don't know what to do really.

For instance, newegg has 32gb memory (I think ripjaws v) for $327, but I think it's hynix. The cheapest definite known samsung b-die is like $420 or above! (it's nice 14 latency 3200 though.... which i think newegg's filters must be screwy because it doesnt even have OPTIONS for 14 latency 3200 in the filters, yet I saw tons of it on someone's wish list).

I'm in the same boat ... which is exactly why I chose the 1050 Ti for now until all the mining stuff settles down.
I want my card now, I could wait forever ... for my video editing needs that should be plenty.

I got this:

First thing, stop stressing. Next, stop listening to the elitist gamers and elitist video editors; they represent a tiny % of the PC population and can really skew people's views on parts.

If you're only doing occasional (keyword here is occasional) video editing (and assuming it's not 4k quality), then you can easily get by with a 1050TI.

Also, 16gb of RAM is perfectly fine, but make sure to buy a motherboard that has atleast 4 RAM slots and allows you to upgrade to 32gb in case you want to upgrade in the future.

Regarding the RAM latency and speed, it's highly doubtful that you would ever notice a difference between the two. The only way you'll see a difference is by monitoring your FPS during gaming or when running benchmark programs; real world computer usage will not see a difference. Detailed info about RAM latency and speed - http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/mem...ed-latency

Lastly, the one place most computers bottleneck at is the hard drive; so make sure to get a solid and reliable SSD (Samsung 850 EVO is always highly recommended) and install your OS, games, and video/graphic design programs on the SSD.

**Note** When buying computer parts, buy reputable brands that have good warranties and customer service. I'm a cheap-o at heart, but learned I would (overall) pay more for repairs/replacements when I bought cheap parts.

Thanks for the response. Most of that I was doing. I have made sure to get reputable brands on everything, got a good deal on a samsung 960 evo ($67.... although I wish I had just got the 850 one, which would have cost me only like $25... considering buying one more if I get that deal again), etc...

The thing is, at THIS point I have never 4k video edited, but it's very possible I could fairly soon. Also, I have seen so many people saying if you buy less RAM than you need up front, then down the line you pretty much have to toss it if you want to upgrade because there's no guarantee even another set of the same model will work properly with it.

Hmm ... the few reviews on Microcenter appear to not be good. Why?

Most ram is compatible. Even if it's different brands etc. All sticks will default to the lowest speed and highest latency of all sticks present.

I'm not certain of anyone's mindset when they write their opinions or reviews.

I would certainly open you eyes and read reviews from many websites on this model and decide for yourself.
