Buy a RX 570 8GB mining edition.

Hi everyone, this is my first post, i'm from spain but i do my best to write correctly :)

I have a GTX 970 and i've planed to buy a turing GPU but i'ts imposibble to me at the actual pricing.

I have the opportunity to buy a RX 570 8GB totally new with 2 years of warranty from 145 euros.

The 970 it's possible to sell between 120 and 130 euros easy so for 15-25 euros i have a new guaranty and 2 games ( res2 remake and devil may cry 5) from AMD.

I'ts worth it?

There is a very big difference with a normal RX 570? 

Thanks and happy holidays!

570 will not be an upgrade from a 970, keep your current graphics card.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Where does the "mining edition" come in? Is that the type of graphics card or something? Who makes it? Xfx? Sapphire?

The 580 are too expensive, the idea it's to do the change for a little money.

It's better to spend money to get more performance, not to spend money to get the same. You're best off staying with the 970 and getting a serious upgrade later

I am obtaining 2 games that i am absolutely buying and a guarantee.
If the 970 dies tomorrow i have nothing, if the rx dies tomorrow i have a new one.

 

The post it's basically to know if the mining edition can have problems for the gaming.

What are the chances that your 970 is going to die tomorrow? My GTX 780 has been running since it was new, and is still going strong even while overclocked.

All electronic hardware have the chances.

My old gt 9800 die without any signs from one die to the other.

The 970 dosen't die in the next two years? Ok, im not losing anything, and i have 2 AAA games of 2019 for les than 30 euros. Maybe les than 20.

Eh, just do it. It has more than enough display ports, and you are not taking any risks since it is new. 

Hell, those free games are the main reason why I ended up ordering new Vega 56 to replace my 2nd hand 1080

Ex-EX build: Liquidfy C+... R.I.P.

Ex-build:

Meshify C – sold

Ryzen 5 1600x @4.0 GHz/1.4V – sold

If you’re so set on getting the new games.. then yeah.. do it. But it won’t be a performance upgrade...  imo better wait and save up and upgrade at a later stage.
