Alright 2 options, $165 Sapphire RX 580 8GB with 2 year warranty, or Asus ROG RX Vega 56 for $305 with 3 year warranty? Games I'm playing: GTA V, CS:GO, Rainbow 6, F1 2017, Cities:Skylines, Mortal Kombat 11?, Minecraft with shaders mod enabled, Doom 2016, PUBG

vega 56 is the faster card. 144hz even if it is 1080p could use all the power it can get.

It’s not a 50% more worth it

A RX590 is a also a good choice

A RX590 is a also a good choice

It's an extra $115 for maybe a 10% at best performance bump over the 580 8gb, and only $25 short of the Vega 56 price.

It isn't a good choice it is a terrible choice.

At $300 for a Vega 56, yes

At the $400+ that is normal for Vega 56, it's not bad

Even if the Vega 56 was it's normal $400+ price, the 590 would still be a terrible value. As Gilroar had stated, you're paying $110 more for a 10% increase.

for $305 the Vega 56 is a good deal

when do you need the parts by? If you can wait lets say a month or so for the Navi announcements, IF the rumors are true we are gonna get some impressive cards at competitive prices.

The pricing rumors most likely aren't. Prices aren't decided until 1-3 weeks before a product is launched. Plus AMD wants to make money too. They are a company after all and will price it competitively according to the market's state. They won't charge you $250 for the sake of "destroying nVidia". The RX 3080 (Navi 10's RTX 2070 competitor) will probably be priced at about $400. The TDP is most likely correct because AMD stated 7nm allows them to make the chips just as powerful at half the power draw. The 12% IPC boost is probably true since on a slide in AMD's presentation states that 7nm allows them to have a 1.25x performance boost. Making the clocks higher and instructions per clock being 12% higher means it probably will be 1.25x better in performance. Yeah, you should DEFINITELY wait.

Go for the Sapphire RX 590 Special edition. It has 10-15% more performance and is only $280 for 8GB.
