Replacing RX 580 with RX 5700 (non-XT)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've been having issues with my XFX Rx 580 8 GB GTS card. I've already RMA'd it and it seems to be the card cause I can take a Sapphire Rx 580 from another system and not have the issue. I was thinking of gettng a RX 5700 non-XT but I'm not sure if I should get the MSI Gaming or one of PowerColor's. They go best with the build I already have if you go by color aesthetics.  Any suggestion why to go with one over another

For sure get the power color card, all of their cards are fine, MSI may have some thermal pad issue with the memory modules.

Or a pulse if it's the same price as power color.

Or wait for a sale on a blower card for $289, then add some thermal paste and washers.

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I RMA'd it earlier in the year and now its doing the same problem as before. Which is random blinking screens.

is there a nitro for the 5700 or just a pulse?

 

Does the Gaming X have the same lacking of thermal pads as the evoke as shown on the XT from GN?

No idea, they probably fixed the issues anyways, just not a priority card for me.

 

The Nitro is really sweet, but it's only an XT card.
