Heh, HD 4670 GPU. I am still rocking on that exact GPU today -> VGA GIGABYTE HD4670 1GB (128) aktiv 1xDVI DDR3 I am unable to launch new games but it's still working perfectly after all those years.
I am hoping to upgrade it to RX 480 this year but the prices at my local shops are still ridiculous (300+ euro). I can get GTX 1060 for cheaper than RX 470 or R9 380... That GTX deal is very nice but I really want an AMD card so I have decided to wait a bit to see how the prices develop. Unfortunately current price of RX 480 is way more than I can afford to spend on any kind of GPU right now.
Anyway more than that I want to upgrade my CPU. Can't wait to Zen to come out. I hope it won't have crazy local prices like the GPUs currently have.
Same thing here in germany.
RX480 started with 220€s but after a few days, no 4gb reference models were available anymore and 260€+ sales for 4 gig models began.
250€ is the minimum now in price of the RX480 models I guess.
RX470 is a wayyy better deal right now in my opinion.
The first computer I built was with an AMD athlon 750k, I was 14 at the time, and I had a very limited budget. I had completely overlooked the fact that I had no on-board graphics. It wasn't a mistake per-say, but intentional because I thought that I had salvaged working GPU's from an old Dell workstation. When i went to start my computer I realized I had no video so I went to buy the cheapest GPU I could get.
Honestly for a first build it didn't come out bad, especially for having minimal experience despite disassembling and reassembling multiple old PC's in the past. I had a lot of fun with the 750k, I played around with overclocking for the first time and it was an amazing experience. That's when my love for PC's really kicked off. I kept investing all of my birthday and Christmas money that I would get just to upgrade my computer. I eventually ended up buying a Corsair H80i to put in my computer ( only to re\alize that my hand me down case couldn't fit it, which required me to retro fit it onto the case).
When I was installing the thing, I came up with the Idea to start a little youtube channel to share my love for PC's, the H80i installation was the first video I posted (and man was it bad) but I kept doing the youtube thing regardless of my popularity. I'm currently 17, have had a sponsorship from AMD until recently, and am still running my youtube channel to date
