[Amazon.ca] EXPIRED: Sapphire Radeon Nitro+ RX 5500 XT 8GB GDDR6 Dual HDMI / Dual DP OC w/ Backplate Special Edition PCIe 4.0 $208

EXPIRED Seems like a decent deal $208 on Amazon.ca. Not sure if they put in the wrong price but I did place an order but not instock until Feb 3.

The seller needs to be Amazon.ca.

Update 2020-01-23 My assumption was correct, pricing error but still got one at $208. Hope others did too!

So this is GTX 1660-like performance for $208...not bad at all. And it's Mojave compatible.

Not likely...unless you make a bigger jump.

what's the regular price of the new 5500 cards? are you sure you're not confusing it with a 5700 card?

The MSRP of the 8gb 5500XT is $200USD.

They are all around $300 CAD. My assumption is that they meant to list it for $308.

Are the video cards worth upgrading on a 7 year old computer?

Got a 7970, 16gb ddr3 ram and i5 4670k. Mobo is asus z87-a.

I think my cpu still has enough mhz and ram to make a significant performance upgrade no? Are all new gpus still use pci-e 3?

I would go up to 5700 at minimum to feel like an upgrade.
