Help finding any decent/affordable graphics card!

Thanks for that, I was considering a 1660s but they're ludicrously overpriced currently. The RX580 is around 25% faster than a 1650, so am still hunting a new 580 in stock anywhere.

Good Luck, I haven't seen many in stock, the only ones ive seen are as you say overpriced.. :(

Issue is its a 4year old card

If I see any ill pop it in here

Surprisingly the enterprise GPU's are in stock, as we have no problems getting the ones we buy but they are around £1K a shot....

And there lies my major issue, a newly built Ryzen system, wanting a half-decent card that'll last me 3-4 years and yet there is nothing available to fill that void.

In a perfect world the RTX 2000 series would be affordable by now, but they're just stupid money too currently. I watched a 1660S go for £650 on ebay yesterday!

Well, I'd just get a new console anyway if I was going to spend that money. These manufacturers need to start realising the high cost of cards is pushing folk away from pc gaming.

Ideally I'd like a mid-end card, but there isn't any, period. A 1660 is 2.5 years old at this point, so utterly pointless buying at the sort of daft money they're going for these days. (currently £360 second hand on CEX)

Think its best to forgo the RTX cards altogether or wait until the 2000 series reach realistic price-points. (if they ever do.)

Had my GTX970 die,been looking for something to replace it for a few weeks now, but a secondhand 2 or 3 year old card, is still way overpriced.
I'm waiting for the RX6600XT due out around 11th August,might be available for a sensible price,if your quick, would like to see a few reviews first, but I might just take my pick from cards available & hope it's a good choice.

I wouldn't hold your breath, CEX is flogging second hand 6700XT's for £675 currently.

Just be thankful one of these Bitcoin miners is not next door sucking all the electricity into its PC's and causing blackouts. :eek:

Your cheap graphics board will appear, just not this year, maybe next year.

Join the PartAlert telegram (or discord), you'll get 3060ti (£369) from Scan from MSRP. Just need to hang around a lot and when the link becomes available add it to cart and it saves it allowing you a good 10mins to checkout.

I got a 3070 a couple of weeks ago and although I wanted the 3060ti I can't complain considering the prices others are paying to scalpers.

How does that work? Scan have a 3060 in stock for £550 and a 3060Ti for £653. How do you get the TI for nearly £300 less?

They're Nvidia's first edition cards sold through the Nvidia website (they're chosen retailer is Scan) they don't show up on the normal scan site. When they're available they show up on the Nvidia website with a generated URL. The part alert telegram has a way of fetching these urls when they become available. (I could be wrong about some of the details here, but hopefully you get the gist of it)

The last 'drop' as they're often called was on the 21st. This is what happens on the telegram. You get a notification click the link, add to cart. Then you have around 10mins to checkout. These cards are 1 per address, if you've ordered one before they will reject your order.

The list is a little short, fine if you're wanting to spend £350+ on a GPU, but theres absolutely nothing out there short of that. (other than a GT 710).
