Lets talk about the current situation, at the moment there is no RX 480 Graphics Card available to Its original release price, the Release price of RX 480 was around $250 for 8gb and $200 for 4gb, and at the moment the MSI RX 480 Costs $500+ on Newegg and Amazon, the most annoying part Is that they are completely out of stock, and there is almost no RX 480 available on Amazon at a suitable price, and some are more than $600
The R9 390’s are out of stock from the past 3 months, because the 390 are really good for mining, but they require too much power comparing the 480s, some 390s are $500+ on Amazon, but even finding $500+ card is impossible, since they are out of stock
Meanwhile the 1060 Original release price was around $280 for 6gb variant and $200 for 3gb variant, but wait what?, currently the 1060 GIGABYTE XTREME Edition costs $500, and G1 gaming costs $400+, apart from GIGABYTE the Asus cards weren’t far, they also cost $410+, and many another aftermarket 1060’s are out of stock.
so that does make sense, that how rapidly the card prices are going sky high, we can save a bit more and get at least GTX 1080 or GTX 1070 Instead of RX 480/GTX 1060, because spending $500 and $400 on 1060 and RX 480 Is really going to be stupid, meanwhile the R9 390s are outdated, 480 and 1060 seems to be better choice though mining won’t let you buy that.
