    $229 plus taxes, then -$20 if you get the rebate.

    You should but it sucks when the websites don't have it clearly listed. I was about to pick one up from bestbuy for my nephew and according to AMD Best Buy, Amazon and other major retailers are participants but best buy doesn't mention it either. Only newegg seems to be clear about it.

    I don't know why but I have never had any luck with AMD cards and this one is compared to a 1070 which is pretty much a lot better than my lowly 1050ti... dammit

    Are you referring to the rx 580 being compared to 1070? If so I think you likely meant 1060 lol. Typo?

    yes sorry, skip of the finger going to fast ;)

    Nah, truth be told I was just lazy and google it quick and didn't bother to read the hellacious difference between them and took the heading of the link at face value.:confused:

    either way it's still significantly better than the 1050ti but i'm still holding out to see if prices drop further before replacing my 1050ti.

    4gb's going for $150 used all over the forums and Ebay. You can't beat that. 4gb Vram is enough for most. Considering 1060 3gb and 970's are at the same price while being a bit slower

    Nope, 4GB is no longer enough, at least on this level of card. I tried the XFX 570 4GB and the XFX 570 8GB Cards, I am on the 8GB one now. At 1080p maxed settings, the minimum fps is double on the 8GB card.

    Yup, for sure there is a slight limitation in Vram. knock a couple settings here and there to stabilize FPS. However. 1050 TI vs RX 580 4gb being right around the same price points. It's a no brainer to go with the RX 580 4gb.

    A new 1050ti vs an RX 580 that was probably a mining card. I’d still take the 1050 ti.

    Many of the cards available are under warranty or even have 3rd party replacement warranties still active.. If bought through Ebay, there is always Squaretrade.. Using that as an argument isn't really a very good one.

    Time is money. I've heard nightmare stories of abused mining cards. I wouldn't buy one even at a steep discount, but that's just me.

    I've heard those stories but have never personally had a problem with mining cards.

    Don't forget, get AMD and Freesync is much cheaper then Gsync

    Speaking of the games codes, I purchased a RX580 maybe 2-3 weeks ago. Maybe a few days after I received the card, I received an email from Amazon saying my promotional game codes were available. Then it had the steps etc.
