R9 380 good for this price?

Ok, I just assumed that a r9 380 would be better than an rx 570 since I am seeing it be sold for 300 dollars new.

It's $300 because prices on things go completely out of wack when they are discontinued and no longer available new. It hasn't been sold new at regular retail in almost 3 years. 

 

Rx 570 has probably 50% better performance than a 380

Hey, I found an r9 380 4gb for about 85 to 90 dollars used from a reputable seller that I know. Is this a good price and a good card? I mostly play rainbow six and the occasional fortnite. Would this be good for 1080p 60fps high to medium settings? Thanks a lot for any help!

GTX 970's for around $100 would be better choice if available to you but if your goal is 1080p60 it will work fine.

I would like to buy from amazon or newegg.

That's what rx 570s are going for used. Even less on Ebay. You can find them in Ebay for under $80 so I would never pay $80 for a r9 380.

 

If you want to buy from Amazon or Newegg you will have to buy new. A RX 570 4gb is around $130 on Newegg. Comes with 2 free games. People have been selling the games for around $40. Or keep the games if you are into them

Amazon cleared out tons of Sapphire cards for $99.99, if you watch like r/buildapcsales or setup a slickdeals alert you should be able to get a good deal. I don't think i'd pay $160 for a RX 570 when you can grab new RX 580's for $20 more.
