First and last time ever buying from Powercolor.

The 5700xt was the gpu I got for my first ever build, but it died within less than a year in use. I sent it back with the RMA process and waited almost a month for this gpu to finally get sent back. And whaddya know they send back a 5700, not a 5700xt.

 

shouldve listened to my friends and stick with nvidia. 😕

How is this AMD's fault? This is why you don't buy cards from shitty aftermarket manufacturers.

 

 

And this is something you should be contacting their support about (again).

How is amd at fault here? That's the same thing saying I'm never buying Galax again should've listened to my friend and stuck with amd. This is just powercolor being at fault.

i didnt say anything about Amd, I love what they have to offer. What I mean by the last part is that my friends told me to get a RTX card instead of a amd one but I went with a amd because I can trust them when it comes to performance (plus the fact so many people said good things about that specific company).

What you did is the equivalent of buying cheap tires for your new car, then blaming the car when the tires make you slide in the rain and wrap your car around a pole.

By saying "shouldve listened to my friends and stick with nvidia" you are saying that... When you say I should've stuck with Nvidia that means not going with AMD at all. You're contradicting yourself.

Guys, can we not be toxic on one small slip up? This is starting to look like youtube comments on both sides.

i suggest contacting powercolor again, nothing much you could do

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.
