Yes, the card you linked is fake. NVIDIA has not had a VGA port on their cards since GTX 7XX. The card is likely a GTS 450.

Yeah that is probably fake, you're right. Look for a used RX 570 if you just want something to tide you over until you get your 5700XT back, or upgrade to a 3080. They are cheap, and won't lose much value if you want to resell it in the next couple months since new cards aren't in that price or performance category. 


e.g. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=rx+570&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_sop=15&_osacat=0&_odkw=rx+580&LH_BIN=1

Second Testbench Rig: i7-4770K @ 4.6 GHz, RX 580 (air cooled), 16GB DDR3 1866, Thermaltake Core P3 White TG, CPU Soft Watercooling

Third Server Rig: R7 1700X @ 4.0 GHz, GTX 1080 Ti, 32GB DDR4 3000, Fractal Core 500, Full Soft Watercooling

Fourth LAN Rig: R5 3600X @ AGESA pls, RTX 2070, 32 GB DDR4 3200, Dan Case A4-SFV V4, 120mm AIO for the CPU

Fifth Router Rig: R3 2200G @ stock, 4GB DDR4 2400, what are cases, stock cooler

I don't have a problem...

as far as temporary gpu's go 650 ti's on ebay are generally the way to go


if your looking for something more permanent then i would wait until tomorrow which is i think when amd's new gpu's come out, amd's last gen flagship had 2070 super performance for only around $400-450 ish (rx 5700 xt, not the scary vega 7), and this next lineup is looking to be around the same, with amd's new flagship gpu being 3080 performance ish
