Seeing as how used RX 580's sell for ~$200 here, I'd get that in a heartbeat.

Inside some old case I found lying around.

I'm not positive on this statement, but as far as performance, I'm pretty sure that the r9 290 is superior to the RX 480 in terms of performance (though it draws a crap load more power).

Rx 480 = gtx 980 = gtx 1060

Based on?  Not saying you're wrong.  Just googled and checked various peoples benchmarks, the 290 is better in some titles and worse than others versus the 480.  IDK, $150 seems like a good price.  I'd go for it if you're interested.

Well this is one year after release. The release was quite bad. So like if you compare a rx 580 and a rx 480 on the same clocks, they perform the same. And if you oc the 480 to the 580 stock clock, it equals the 1060.

I mean, generally speaking probably, but it is also title dependent.  I generally think of the 580 and 480 as fairly equivalent to the 1060 in terms of performance, just because there is variance between games.  Either way, I still conclude that $150 for an RX 480 is a solid deal.
