Trust me i am all for a used card and planned to get one until these new price changes. I just really like new stuff. And the 1070's still seem to be about $250+ unless i want to try and win a bid war. But ide rather just buy it instantly. And if i was going to go closer to $250-300 ide probably just get the 1660 ti since its a tad better then a stock 1070. But again once you're at $300 you might aswell go for a 2060 or something. But idk.

I am leaning towards a 590 since it seems the price will stay low so i dont have to rush and buy it on sale. But then again an overclocked 1660 is basically a 1660 ti but only 6gb of vram. Decisions decisions... And i will keep my eye on the used market for a card of course.

The sapphire rx590's are now sold out. I should of bought one when i had the chance, rip. Looks like ill probably end up with a 1660 or say yolo and pay extra for the 1660 ti. Unless sapphire restocks the 590's soon and keeps them priced at $220.

However i could just save myself a good bit of money and settle for a used rx580 for like $165. Im not really sure what the best choice would be. :-\

To buy used stuff just look at auctions that are ending soon, if there's something you like wait until 1 min before it ends and put a price $10 higher. Honestly it's WAY cheaper than trying to instant buy on eBay.

Thanks a ton for the advice tiki. Although i had to bid at literally the last second to win it i got it!!! Total with shipping was $150. Such a good deal!!!!!

Here is my finished build.

Only thing i plan to do in the future is add a 1tb+ ssd for more storage. And i 100% plan to upgrade to Ryzen 3000 series R7 or R9 when they come out here soon hopefully.
