  1. The 590 buy i havent heard of a 4gb version
  2. Uh I dont think it would be an upgrade, at best a "side grade" since the 5600xt competes with the rtx 2060 which is a little better than last gens 1070.
  3. I mean at this point i think they've beat the naming for the usb standards XD
  4. Yeah, instead they usually just refresh all their cards and keep the same names and throw them into their ever confusing product stack.
  5. I mean shit, 2200 is getting close to rtx titan pricing, if you like to flex just get that.
  6. Have you tried ddu-ing and reinstalling the amd drivers again just to be safe
  7. 8gb will do fine if your on a budget but 4 is too low, but then again you can buy a decently clocked 16gb kit of ram for like $50 now so i would go for 16 anyways. The parts are compatible but unless you already have the 970 i would recommend an rx 570/580 or even a 1650 super depending on pricing, availability, etc. The cpu is a little weak for todays games as well and an r5 might last a little longer, r5 1600 seemed to be priced around the same price as the 2200g so upgrading to something like that may be worth it as well.

  8. I dont think you've been scammed (at least with what youve said so far) you might just need to upgrade your psu, any power supply that doesn't have at least a 6 and an 8 pin pcie connectors is probably not that good, although im still confused by the fact that you said your graphics card came with those adapters, I've never bought that specific card but no graphics card ive ever bought has come with power adapters.
  9. I dont know much about the thermal performance of the msi mech model but if the fans are ramping up that high and your still hitting 90c than that doesn't seem right
  10. Couldnt you just... ignore the adapters and just plug in the 6 and the 8 pin cables directly from your psu, unless your psu doesn't have those connectors?

    If youre going x570 then you're going to need a 2nd or 3rd gen cpu, x570 isnt compatible with 1st gen ryzen
  12. Im assuming that you're using that 1080p 75hz monitor from your signature so with that being said why not keep your existing cpu and upgrade to a rx590 or 1660 super and use the extra cash for a ram or other upgrade.
  13. Heres the two from gigabytes website being compared together. OC-8GC (RIGHT) : https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N206SGAMING-OC-8GC#kf OC-8GD (LEFT) : https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N206SGAMING-OC-8GD-rev-10#kf Basically the same with clock speeds being the biggest exception.
  14. Please for the love of god dont crossfire 2 580s. In SOME examples, such as synthetic benchmarks, they can compete with a 1080/ ti, but for 98% of the other games, it wont be worth it. Maybe just buy one of the cards for less and use the rest to save up for a new cpu or gpu?
