    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.

    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.

    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?

    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

    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?
