That's more expensive than it should be.

Look for a GTX 980 on Ebay, it will cost like $200 USD so probably £250 and perform similarly

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really.

Like every other gpu it is overpriced. It was probably around £200 - £250 on release.

The 1660 Super had a release MSRP of $230 ~£230

 

For ~£450 u'd be looking at a 1070ti, or 2060 super. around that time period.

 

Today the 3060ti 'should' be around £400.

 

but as u can see by the price of the 1660S ...prices are insane right now.

Recommend waiting for something better, unless you absolutely need it. Maybe try looking around for a RTX 2060 around that price. You may be able to find a RX 6600XT in some places too, which will be better than gpu too.
