Didn't find this here yet.
In store pickup available for 8/25 by me.

Very hard to find the 8GB version @ suggested retail, grabbed one.
And yeah, I know all about the other cards from Team Green, but my customer demanded this one for his new build!
(...waits for nVidia & AMD fanboys to threadcrap!)

I have a freesync monitor, so nVidia cards are out for me. Stop threadcrapping if you don't have anything to say about this specific deal.

Since you edited your post:
umm, ASUS Strix 1060 is $329 @ Amazon, Gigabyte 1060 is $289 @ NewEgg.
A +$50 - $90 difference dosn't represent being close in price for me, sorry.
Best if you just leave this thread alone my friend, LOL!

Btw, I own cards from both Nvidia & AMD.
Both brands make good cards in their respective segments.
(I happen to think the image quality for web surfing is better on all of the AMD cards I've used, gaming image quality is mostly the same with both.)

yeah mostly those who interested in 480 are either build-specific or have a freesync monitor. I do too, so i am not even going to bother looking at all the 1080 1070 1060 price, not until i have a monitor that supports Gsync.

not a Slickdeal. new egg business has the same deal in stock. this card should cost $199 based on its MSRP. wait for stock to pick up in a few months and don't over pay for this by 15%

FYI, $199 msrp is for 4GB version.
(Good luck finding that price!)

i would have jumped on this but got in on the gtx 1060 from best buy, might just cancel the order i paid $225 for my1060 after taxes and amex discount and a $10 bestbuy coupon and a visa checkout coupon, lol

looking at raw performance, the rx480 should be a winner (it's currently not), it has a much higher peak compute (t/flops) and more ram

it benchmarks better with dx12 and vulkan - so going forward, it should come out ahead

either way, can't really go wrong for now with any of these next gen budget cards. they all rock!

Nope. It's information that anyone can use to make an informed decision. Ergo, relevant.

i don't think mods allow shortened urls, you probably should just post the link and let SD do the rest
