    So where did you buy it? How much was it? Which brand did you choose? 8GB or 4GB?

    I bought mine off Newegg, XFX 8GB for $249US. BTW, does anyone know if any closed loop water coolers will fit the RX480? Or where to find out?

    I think it wont be long before some AIO cooler or water block hits the streets for the 480 if those 1500-1600Mhz with good cooling are real.

    Well EK waterblock will be available by July 7th or 8th they said, but I don't want an open loop.

    I guess it depends on if they used similar mounting holes and how much a shim would be needed.

    Me and my friend are still not seeing the card here (hopefuly soon). He wants to order one so i'll be benchmarking and probably posting some scores here.

    So tempted to get one myself. :p

    Just ordered the 8GB Gigabyte off of Newegg. It was an impulse buy. Will install it in my kids older PC that has a i7 970, a GTX 660, and 32GB of ram. Anyone think this card will run fine on a i7 970 cpu? Btw, this is for 1080P gaming.

    Pricing in DK atm is a minimum 300€ for 8gb - a bit steep. Not going to jump any horse right now.

    But everyone seems to have them in stock in multiple vendor versions, including apparently pre-OC'd versions running on the stock cooler... several run upwards of 400€ too.

    It will run decently if you can overclock the 970 a bit.

    Buy from germany from mindfacory.de for example :D use the EU to your full powaaaaa. 270€ actually so only 30€ less. 288€ is the 1328 mhz xfx one I think.

    I don't like buying expensive electronic devices that you might need to return to a retailer outside the country :p the buyer's protection in Denmark is a lot higher than most other countries. Gonna wait till we have custom cards. Those should be great, if priced right.

    Why do you think that? Im poor guy from Serbia, right?

    Im not playing much demanding games lately. LoL, PoE, UT, Planetside 2, Rust...well only Star Citizen is demanding on my list.

    I also need a whole system overhaul not only GPU.

    I am still happy with my 270X cfx setup...
    getting ~90FPS in most titles, 1440p

    Fallout 4, ~90, 1440p, all ultra, no gameworks stuff
    GTAV, ~70-80, 1440p, all ultra, shadows high, fxaa
    Hitman, DX11cfx, ~70-80, 1440p, medium-high settings, smaa
    Witcher 3, ~60-70, 1440p, all high, hairworks off, its hard to disable the rest of gameworks stuff in this game
    BF 4, ~90-100, 1440p, all ultra, no MSAA
    DOOM, no cfx support, ~40-70, 1080p, TSSAA, all high, reflections off

    i am still curious how dx12 performance will revive older cards, so i'll wait as well.
    but i'll either go with vega or 480 CFX once it is time for that.

    8 GB for 200$, lets go. :nerd:

    i actually once switched out the sdram ics on an old gpu to make it go from 512 to 1024. the ICs themselves are cheap as hell...

    if people only knew they could easily switch out 16x 256MB ICs for 16X 512 ICs to go from 4GB to 8GB on certain cards...
    there are several chinese suppliers who sell the hynix/elpida BGAs for 2-3$ per piece.

    but that explains why they don't put the lower density chips on the 480 in first place... saves production costs. (and makes modders happy)
