    RX 480 is not designed for 4K… It was designed for VR and good 1440p with lower settings…

    ‘No DVI output is present on a sub $250 graphics card, so make sure you pick up an adapter if you need one for an older display.’ Bad advice. Get a custom card, such as the Sapphire Nitro 480, which comes with DVI, detachable fans and better cooling and overclocking for not much more than the reference card. Much better deal.
