Which RX 470 TO BUY

I heard the Gigabyte cooler design wasn't great, I don't know too much about the Sapphire cooler though. In the past they had great coolers though.

@ivan134 Hey thanks for the reply first of all but on seeing the specs i see how the base clock of gigabyte's card is more than that of sapphire's and on top of it its memory frequency too. (P.S. : i am not into overclocking so i have no information regarding sapphire's oc ability)

Sapphire is the better buy... Might have a lower base clock out of the box but it wont thermal throttle as bad as the gigabyte one

Hey thanks, but what about the memory frequency is that an issue, and what effects does it have in total,i.e., is having higher memeory frequency really benefit!

Not really... 1-2 fps maybe but it's nothing major but you can do all of that with the sapphire card and still have better thermals than the gigabyte. I used to own a Rx 470 and @ivan134 can verify that (bless that unicorn of a chip I got)  but in terms of cards to buy Asus & XFX > MSI > Sapphire > (Insert any other brands I forgot here) > Gigabyte

@XenosTech hey mahn plss check this link i am buying this card actually the link i posted was for nitro + i guess but this is the actual card i am planning to buy, https://gear-up.me/sapphire-rx-470-4gb-256-active-3xdp-h-oc-d5.html

you have a small case or something ? Would better to get the nitro+ if you don't since that'll run cooler in a normal case than this one

Do you have the option to order from out of country because the price of the card you linked is obscene. I used the Google currency converter which prices that card at $290 Canadian which is about $25 more than a 480 and $70 more than a 470 here

 

Also just based on my personal experience I wouldnt be afraid of going Gigabyte. I got my Gigabyte 6850 7 years ago and it was just recently I had to oil one of the fans. Maybe their quality dropped over the years?

Are you aware of any website that ships to Oman at lower shipping rates?

NCIX and Amazon will both ship international. Heres Amazons rates to ship to your area https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=596204

 

And they have some decent prices for the cards https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=RX+480

$229 for an 8GB 480 +$14 for shipping  a decent deal
