    Hi guys I'm actually a noob when it comes to pc parts and stuff, my mate built me my pc a couple years ago and I'm just a gamer really so haven't got any idea what's the next step when it comes to upgrading, I'm getting a 3060ti to upgrade from my rx570, question is will I need anything else to go with my 3060ti and how much could I get for my old rx570? My mate has offered me £80 for it but wondering if that's a fair price? Thanks

    I think Gibbo said they won't be getting any more.

    There is no profit for the board partners to offer them, so they don't. I think the only chance of an MBA now, is direct from AMD.

    Check FB marketplace too. I sold my old RX570 for £110 to a guy who drove around a 100 mile round-trip to pick it up! Prices have also gone up generally since then.

    Fingers crossed. I have some G.skill Trident Z RGB 3200 CL14 to put with it from my current pc but was hoping to get hold of some G.skill Trident Z 'Neo' RGB memory. Seems to be mainly sold across waters.

    What so you're happy to pay £200 over RRP for no good reason? I appreciate prices have gone up a bit but that's taking the ####. You're mugs if you pander to their scalps. And yes it's not just oc doing it but they are amongst the worst offenders.

    Re read what i said people paid between 350 -500 pounds for a 5700xt theyre selling them on the bay for over 500 some have gone over 600 pounds with no warranty now for not much more you can get a brand new card with warranty for a between 50 -150 which is better than the card they had which they paid 3 x as much for so to them its a no brainer and not bad buisness 50 -150 pounds for a card that is equall or beats last gens top cards also manufactures have put prices up by 25 percent on the retail price i never mentioned i was happy what i did say was tell me what card you could buy before this madness stsrted for 150 even 200 brand new which beat a 5700xt ? i await your answer on that if your buying a new card without a card to sell then no i wouldnt buy at these prices and i wouldnt be happy either to answer your question so my point is if youve sold a card on the bay for 600pounds add 150 and youve a brand new card for a total out lay of 150 pounds with full warranty and better than you had before

    Thanks Gibbo and Overclockers. Received my 3070 card today and it is all installed. It was to replace my dead 1080 card that went pop 2 weeks ago. Ordered Friday, had it today.
