Default (solved) RX 580 ARMOR 8G OC

Would it ^ be considered a fair enough card at $317cdn with a boost clock rate 1366mhz, warranty good for BC, Canada as in easy to deal with if I have to?

Any other thoughts/points would be appreciated.

Thanks



Edit April 22nd, I've decided to wait it out and see what Vega does to the gpu market maybe even wait for next Black Friday.

I think 8GB VRAM on these cards is more a marketing gimmick, the 4GB cards would do just fine. And, at 320 I would better buy a used GTX 980.

I'd take an 8GB RX 580 over a 4GB GTX 980 any day of the week.

I think that's a fair price for a good quality card.

I've dealt with MSI on warranty once with a GTX 970 golden edition and had no issues, though I was able to save the shipping charges by driving it over to their RMA depot in Markham, Ontario. I received the replacement in 4-5 business days.
