    If I can get a Radeon VII...

    Picked up my Radeon VII today, thanks for the input everyone!

    3 years maybe? Not sure how long it sat on the shelf before I bought it. Definitely not old enough to be doing what its doing. It's decidedly out of warranty though.

    Thats what I'm thinking, but it started acting really strangely; artifacts, frame drops, etc. No OC on it either. Not sure if a driver issue or a cooler issue. Temps suddenly got real high, I'm waiting on some kryonaut to replace the paste and see if that fixes it. Might hold onto it for a small travel PC. I'd decided on this upgrade well before the 1070 started acting weird, though.

    9700k, Gigabyte z390 Aorus pro wifi, 32GB 3000mhz RAM, H150i CPU cooler, enough fans, Lianli 011 Dynamic, 850W EVGA PSU.

    I might be able to get a Radeon VII for about the same price as a high end RTX 2070, Think in the $580ish range. A good comparison would be an EVGA XC Ultra 2070 to a Radeon VII. I'd love to read some opinions about which is the better buy. Bear in mind that I'm in this for value, I don't buy hardware based on brand allegiance. Gaming is the primary use case, some light video and photo editing are secondary use cases. Edit: upgrading from an MSI Aero GTX 1070 ITX card. No need to worry about the form factor, as my system is now an ATX sized system.
