DRR4 has seen some price increases as of late. This could be due in part to Intel’s recent release of Kaby Lake and AMD’s soon to be released Ryzen, both of which require DRR4, but shortages in supply are not uncommon (especially with SMT lines ramping-up for SSDs). Graphics card prices across both nVidia and AMD have finally come to a stabilization point, and some savings can be had on a few GPUs from both vendors.

MSI Radeon RX 480 Armor 4GB ($175) - The RX 480 has seen some price drops recently, and this MSI RX 480 Armor 4GB card is available over at Newegg for $175 (or $155 after rebate). MSI’s RX 470 Armor 4GB is also available for $170 or $155 after rebate, making the RX 480 4GB variant the better price option at the time of writing.
