As title please...whats best card for arround 200£..Thanks
The Powercolor RX 590 goes for 189 at OCUK today. Impressive price for a very powerful card. Its direct competitor from Nvidia goes for almost double the money.
Huh? Surely the RX 590 completes against the GTX 1660, which is only slightly more expensive. Which one is best depends on which games you play.
You get more for your money with the 590.
Big benchmark of the 1660 here, includes comparisons with 590 (and other similar cards), very close between the 590 and 1660.

1660 still stuck on 2015 levels of VRAM @ 6GB. 590 is hands down the better card.
Another vote for the 590, for £189 it is a steal.
Especially as it comes with 2 games.
590 would be my choice.
Is the 590 worth the extra £30 over the 580?
I wouldn't have said so but the 590 is definitely slightly faster.
Well it's not better value but obviously it is slightly faster in absolute terms (only ~5% despite being clocked ~15% higher). Maybe it has more overclocking headroom though?
Rx590 with 2 games hands down
If you value quietness at all avoid the red dragon cards.
This is the best card at £200
My basket at Overclockers UK:
1 x KFA2 GeForce GTX 1660 1-Click OC 6144MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card= £199.99
Total: £209.89 (includes shipping: £9.90)
Or the 580, with two free games and a free SSD:
PowerColor Radeon RX 580 Red Dragon V2 8192MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card @ £167.99 inc VAT
AXRX 580 8GBD5-3DHDV2/OC, Boost: 1350MHz, Memory: 8192MB 8000MHz GDDR5, Stream Processors: 2304, DirectX 12 Support, AMD CrossFire, AMD Eyefinity, 3 Years Warranty
Only £167.99 inc VAT.
I'm also looking for a card around the same price as the OP and was considering going for this one. Could you tell me how the warranty is handled after the first year? I don't want to have to deal with shipping it globally if there is a problem! Thanks
It is 2yr with OcUK.
That is the deal to get if your looking for a card in this price bracket, without a doubt a stunning deal, two games and a £30 240GB SSD. absolute no brainer if your looking for a sub £200 card.
The value of the free items essentially means your getting an RX 580 for under £100.
Got 2 freesync monitors and on pc I mainly play rFactor 2 and Forza Horizon. Monitors are 4k 60hz (FH) and 1440 ultrawide 100hz (rF2) . Currently got a 1080 but wondering whether to try crossfire out, worth it?
that 580 deal with an SSD is a bargain
