Every Gigabyte graphics card I've bought has worked fine so I haven't had that experience.
My Gigabyte RX 460 has run great since Sierra beta Sept 2016 still alive and well in Mojave 14.2 beta. It may be the first documented Hackintosh RX card with metal? I was elated when I updated the beta and heard the fans spin.

Thank goodness the prices on 570s and 580s have come back down to normal levels so they are affordable again. :thumbup:

I bought my XFX RX 480 reference cards for $250 ea. plus tax in June 2006. Thankful the mining craze died. You can't not (double negative intended) buy a card now if you need one or plan on needing one soon.

Yes, the prices of many of the RX570s are under $160 after rebate now so why wait till they're out of production and the prices go way back up again ? I've got a 570 on the way this week.

Best deal on Newegg is the GA RX570 4GB for $140 after rebate right now.

You get it at the normal cost of a 560 which is a much weaker card than the 570 so why not ?

The Sapphire Nitro+ RX 570 4GB is going for as low as 160€ in Europe, isn't that a much more reasonable option if hardcore gaming is not a requirement? Will easily drive multiple 4K displays, has native silent BIOS, draws less power.
Thanks for this. I hadn't appreciated this was natively supported, and have been after something that will run silently. Still more power hungry than I was after, but then it is more powerful as well!
