AMD's lineup of RX 500 series graphics cards is getting a bit old at this point, but the highest-end model—the RX 590—is still a good option for a 1080p budget gaming PC. Now you can get the RX 590 for just $170, one of the lowest prices we've ever seen for this card.

The model on sale is from Gigabyte, and offers 8GB of GDDR5 memory, a core clock (in OC mode) of 1560 MHz, a gaming mode that boosts to 1545 MHz, and 2304 Stream Processors. For video output, you get one HDMI connector and three DisplayPort.
