Will RX 590 worth the upgrade for my system?

Guest
 Share

Go to solution Solved by LukeSavenije,

well, I would get the 580 then. That much more for a 590 I can't justify

Currently I am using GTX 950 for two years and looking to upgrade
At first I wanted to upgrade to RX 480, but coincidentally there RX 590 promotion with 3 games (2 of them I really want to play). Here is the thing, in my country.
A used RX 480 cost around $175 while
A new RX 590 cost $330, with bonus at least $100 worth of games
Other card like a new GTX 1060 6GB cost around $280, used one will be $235
And no way I pay anything more than $400 for any parts for something like 1070

I do not care much about FPS, 30 is good enough for me.
I tend to prefer high texture detail and stuff
Is it a good deal? Most likely I won't upgrade in the next 2-4 years

My other concern is power consumption
I read some reviews and all of them point RX590 is power hungry
Full load it can reach 370 Watt total system consumption
Most of the time I always try to buy product that conserve electricity, so never had High End GPU
What I want to know is how big jump my electricity bill / kWh consumption with RX 590 from GTX 950 and compared to RX 480?

Oh and one last thing, I saw on Sapphire site that RX 590 need 8-pin and 6-pin (optional)
Should I plug both in? What the optional 6 pin for?

PC Spec
- 1080p monitor + 4k Freesync
- Core i5 4460
- RAM 16GB
- 1 SDD + 3 HDD
- B85-G43 GAMING board
- Seasonic Focus Plus 750

*Sorry if my English isn't that clear

personally i have been buying used gtx 1070 for 200ish. 

zotac makes one with a single 8 pin connection 

but if you want to use freesync guess youll need a amd card. with bitcoin dropping lots of people have been selling rx card super cheap. one guy had like 25 580s in my area selling for 100 a card

There shouldn't be much difference between the rx 590 and 480. I don't think you're going to really notice any differences when you change cards since gpus have gotten more efficient.

The other 6pin is for when you need more power, like overclocking. I usually just plug in both to be safe, and I like everything being plugged in.

There is no GTX 1070 at that price at my place unfortunately
A new Zotac GTX 1070 cost $490 and used one around  $400-420

I do not care about Freesync that much, but it is nice if I can use it

What would vega cost you? and a 580?

Vega cost a slightly more than GTX 1070 which should be $500, way over may budget allowance part
RX 580 both new and used currently cost more vary from $250 up to almost same price as RX590 on some

Yeah while RX 590 a bit faster on some benchmark I saw, it probably won't be that noticeable when gaming
Oh okay, just to be safe it is better to plug both. Thanks

I agree with @LukeSavenije. Go for the 580

the 580, 590 and 1060 6G are all with bull spit of each other.  just get which ever is cheapest.  I am in the same boat right now with my sons PC,  he had a 270 which died, now I am tossing between a 580 and 1060.  It's really close.

Ah okay so RX 580 will be a better choice
I am more lean to RX 580 now since it still eligible for 2 of those 3 games which is better because I only want DMC 5 and RE2
But gonna see more review and benchmark to see clearly what both RX 580 and 590 offer
Thanks for the input

Yeah they are all very close in term performance and price with good deal too. Not complaining but the dilemma

well, let me know what specific card you're buying, so you get a well cooled one

Both for RX 580 and RX 590, I am thinking Sapphire Nitro+ either SE or not
I have good experience with Sapphire so far so that is one of the reason. They usually quiet too

I really wanted to get RX580 but unfortunately the new one with promotional bonus game are all sold out so I got RX590 instead using coupon and such
RX580 is the best choice in this budget I think
