[Newegg] SAPPHIRE Radeon RX Vega 64 (+3 GAMES Bundle) - $585+$7.99 Shipping

I think it might be the all-time low for the reference card in Canada. This card is perfect if you want to change the blower fan to a watercooling solution or a bigger heatsink like the Raijintek Morpheus II.

Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of excellent deals for 1070TI / 1080 / 1080TI around but if you are looking for an AMD card, you have/want a FreeSync Monitor (muchhhh cheaper than a G-Sync monitor) or you want to Hackintosh (Mojave only support AMD GPU for the moment), this is a good deal.

The card is also bundled with 3 new games.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey
Star Control: Origins
Strange Brigade

I'm waiting to see what Apple announced on the 30th, if it's garbage, I hope it'll still be at this price for some Hackintoshing.

Thanks OP

You could get one and not open it till the event. I'm not sure if we will see that price again for the reference pcb. It depends on your build. I know that I need the reference model if I want a Vega GPU in my ITX case.

I'm still very much not confident that I'll get involved in the hassle of making a Hackintosh (it's a work computer for me, so it's always a risk). And ordering from NewEgg and returning AFAIK is not always that easy since I'm not a Premier member.

If the price is back up, I'll wait for another sale

Decent price but I refuse to purchase Sapphire video cards after two died on me over the years. When I attempted to get the last one replaced under warranty I was told to ship it to Taiwan and they would look at it to see if it meets warranty replacement.

Some people on different forums think that the Vega 64 SAPPHIRE is one of the best. Don't really know why. Maybe the memory? I hope my card doesn't died after a few months.

undervolted and overclocked will get you great performance from these. Love mine! I believe the V64's have Samsung HBM memory, while the V56's have some samsung and some hynix. The Hynix top out around 960 while the Samsung can do 1100 plus. I have two Vega 56's that are both samsung and when you can open Vega up with lots of memory bandwidth you get great performance gains

Hi, I'm hoping someone who is much better at PC graphics and PC builds can help me a bit.

A while back ago someone built a PC for me. These were the parts.

My question is, is the upgrade worth it for gaming? And, is it a simple plug and play (remove and replace)?

Thanks

This would be a massive upgrade from the 7870...depending on what resolution and refresh rate your monitor is, we could suggest a suitable card. This will work, but a RX 580 might suit you just as well and its cheaper, but still much faster than your 7870

This card would destroy any of the 7800 series.
It should be simple plug and play.
If you're playing 1080p resolution only, this card is way overkill.

PS. It's a 200-500% improvement, and an average of 300%
PPS. You've got a good CPU and Power Supply so you won't have to worry about changing those.

Thanks everyone, so it seems this card is overkill for my 1080p monitors. So the question now is, if I go with the RX 580, it it good enough for a 4K monitor at 60 FPS?
