  1. The thing is that i live in Mexico, and the first problem is finding hardware at a good price, the second problem is that if i search for used hardware its not that reliable so, thats why i would like to go for new Right now i have found the 2 editions that i wish for on amazon and a Mexican page The Rx 590 is currently at 5450 pesos + shipping The 5500 xt is currently at 5350 including shippong so
  2. No, i rock a b450 rog strix mobo and a ryzen 7 2700x, i wouldnt have gen4 pcie
  3. No, i rock a b450 rog strix mobo and a ryzen 7 2700x, i wouldnt have gen4 pcie
  4. I've seen a fair amount of comparison between 5500 xt and 580/590 Sometimes I even see the 590 win But the 5500 is gddr6 and has a higher clock, but not as many cores or something So Wich one is better or should I grab? I have the theory that the 5500 xt will be better over the time, will perform better with updates So ? Pd, I would grab 5500 xt nitro or 590 nitro blue
  5. I havent really considered the Nvidia side, but at this moment is either 5500 xt or 5700 xt,
  6. Yeah, but as i mentioned, i dont have any AAA titles, the heaviest games i have are gta, monster hunter, dead by deadlight, all of therse should do about 70 fps at ultra if im not mistaken
  7. Actually that was autocorrect
  8. I'm actually going for the asthethics of the Nitro edition, that's what I like, but thanks for the recommendation
  9. Hey guys how you all doing, hope that everything is ok So here is the deal, I want to upgrade my very old graphics card to a new one and I am looking just at 2 at the moment Huge and fanboy btw.... I am looking at either a 5700 xt or a 5500 xt sapphire nitro, I like those models The thing is that I would like to know if the investment is the best I don't have many money for the 5700, that would take me at least 2 months more I have enough for the 5500 I have a 27 inch 1920, 144 hz monitor and don't plan to change it I dont do any AAA titles really, I play LoL, Rocket League, I think my most demanding game is monster Hunter I also do streaming from time to time My system is Ryzen 7 2700x water-cooled by masterliquid 240 B450 F Rog motherboard Radeon R7 260x 16gb Gskill 3600 mhz Ssd 240, 1.5 tb of hard drive Masterwatt 600w Lian Li 011 Dynamic Sceptre 27 inch 2019 monitor Hope you guys can help me with this, and that the info is enough Also, is it worth waiting for the 5600 series or is that jibber jabber?
  10. Thanks for the info, this definitively helps! I'll see what I can find and afford, but now that I know this, this will help, thank you so much!
  11. So the 5700 doesn't get bottlenecked by the R7? That was my main concern
  12. Hi guys, this is my first topic I am building a new computer, but I have doubts in Wich gpu I'll choose, I figured I might get some help here I want either 590 Nitro Blue edition or 5700xt nitro The system I am building is for streaming/gaming Ryzen 7 2700x Rog Strix B-450F 16 gb Gskill Tridentz 3600 I am either going for a Spectre 24 or 27 inch monitor I don't know if I should post any more info, but this is what I am going for so far, I only have the motherboard at this moment
  13. I wonder what happened with the giveaways, was it secret or what happened?
  14. So, the reason i want to win this giveaway, is because I WANT TO MEET LINUS Working in Linus Media Group is my dream job, i have watched Linus for a long time and well, i love it, i mean is not like i watch EVERY video on the history of Linus, but i really like it, i think the first one i saw was the sub zero build guide, i even want to study something to get to work there some day. Now that i think it i never registered to the Linus Tech Tips page, only watched on youtube (Facepalm) My PC is an AMD A6 mounted on a Mini ATX gigabyte motherboard, it has 8GB of DDR3 memory and it has a Radeon R7 250 with 1GB of video, the other stuff is no big thing, and my periphals are a CM devastator II kit with the Sennick headphones (Only cause they glow LOL), and the Screen is a LG 24 Inch LG 24M38 I run some games properly, about 30 - 40 FPS, League of Legends Caste Crashers, Super Motherload I remember the one time i bought The Crew when it was on sale and Rest In Pepperonis, it basically was dead My favorite game, Saints Row IV runs at 10 - 20 Fps, so i had to play it on a console D: I wonder if it can run Crysis Well, if my video is no creative at all, that would be so sad ;-; Hello Linus
