Date Issued: 24th Aug 2016

The market for graphics cards priced at £250 has been hotting up since both AMD and Nvidia released GPUs based on their latest architectures. AMD has been more eager to pinpoint the sub-£200 market with two GPUs - the Radeon RX 480 and Radeon RX 470. Specifically, if you can find one, the Sapphire RX 480 Nitro 4GB is arguably the best card south of this all-important figure.

Questions & Answers

Will it fit

I'm looking to put this graphics card in my pc (MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB ARMOR OC Graphics Card) The case I have is a Thermaltake Core V1 Mini ITX Case, and in the specs it was VGA max length 285mm and the card says its 275mm long. Will a 10mm or 1cm space by okay or is it just not gonna fit?? Thanks
Asked by: Palmerep
Hello, This would be fine in the case as it's below the maximum length advised by Thermaltake. Just won't have much room available which is expected with a mini-ITX system. Regards,
