    Hi,

    I'm selling my Sapphire RX480 8GB Nitro+ OC. My reason for sale is simple; I made some poor component choices for a recent SFF build; the CPU fan runs at full tilt all the time because it isn't getting enough cool air. Downgrading to a to a smaller card with a blower design is the simplest and quickest fix, and TBH the 480 is more than I need anyway - got a little carried away looking at benchmarks.

    The card runs well - it's the quietest part of my system at present, and the temps are decent. It's about a month old, and an invoice will be included for warranty purposes.

    I'm asking for £210 inc. or £200 collected. I would consider a smaller card as a part ex; the 460, 1050, or 1050Ti. The card comes boxed.

    Price and currency: £210
    Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
    Payment method: PayPal, Bank Transfer
    Location: Stafford
    Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

    Would you consider a Zotac 660Ti Amp Extreme! card in part exchange? (plus cash my end of course)

    It's a smaller form factor card but has a nice amount of grunt behind it, in fact it was the most powerful 660ti released. I'm just getting the itch to upgrade due to me building a PC for my step son over Xmas lol

    Cheers

    EDIT: Forgot to say, I've still got the box and retail packaging for it so it would be sent securely, etc :)

    I'll take a look later, but I think I'm looking for something more recent really.

    No worries, the 660 Ti is a lot better than a 460 and the Amp Extreme! should push a 1050 close (due to the higher core and memory clocks on the Amp Extreme!, which give a boost of around 20% over a stock 660 Ti)

    Hi, I've just had a look.and it's not what I'm looking for. My main reasons for downgrading were size, TDP and cooler style. At 150W and with the same style of cooler, the only improvement I'm going to see is more space in the case (and I'm not sure if that alone will do the job).

    I have a Gtx 970 if you want to Part Ex, I am also in the North west so collection is also a possibility. I sent you a PM but not sure how things work on this forum.
    Edit: Have read the rules, please disregard my private message
