True. You can run 4K movies on basically anything

What I am also thinking is how I have used my gtx 1050 ti for 2.5 years and it is playing my games at medium settings 70 fps so the rx 580 has double performance in speed and vram. This being the rx 580 should be able to play 1080p games at ultra at a pretty good fps or maybe even high settings at higher fps.

I play at 1080p plus the model I got is really good at overclocking with a 3 fan configuration. Thanks for your input.

The rx 580 is about the same price as the 1650 super so you might as well get it because it also has double the vram.

It is better than the 1650 but is still overpriced and for around the same price you would be stupid to not get the rx 580 with double the vram.

Get an rx 580 with 8gb of ram for around $160 instead of that overpriced garbage 1650s. The rx 580 may not look as pretty as it is low tier but is just appearance. I would get another opinion but this is what I think and would get.

So it basically works because it isn't rgb and is only one solid color? If so then that makes sense and thank you for the reassurance.

A big price drop will more than likely happen for the rx 500 series GPUs so they get rid of them with more Navi coming. Also some price drops happen to peripherals.

If it’s 1080p make sure the monitor is not bigger than 25 inches so you don’t worry about blurriness and distortion. Choose ips and va panel displays over the because they are more colorful.

You talked about how you want it to be portable so I suggested you start there.

look up portobello monitors. A person I know received one from work and can be the size of a laptop when the stand is folded. This is the best portable option that I know of. I would first look at these to get a better idea.

Also would a Ryzen 5 2600 bottleneck an RX 5700? I would be playing 1440p. I am getting 16gb 3200mHz RAM in dual channel. In fact, here is my build I'm planning on in the next month or two. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Dkn3CL

I'm looking at these two now. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tFGnTW/asus-radeon-rx-5700-8-gb-tuf-gaming-x3-oc-video-card-tuf-3-rx5700-o8g-gaming https://pcpartpicker.com/product/NLPgXL/powercolor-radeon-rx-5700-8-gb-red-dragon-video-card-axrx-5700-8gbd6-3dhroc

Is it truly worth $20 more for one or the other? I could always use the $20 elsewhere. For me, it's not worth it if it's even 5 fps more

Ok, thanks. For not spending more than $360 or getting an RX 5700xt part. AIB rx 5700xt models are well over $450 so I wouldn't worry about that if I were you but I do hear what you are saying.

Ok thanks for your input. I also figured it would eventually pay its self off because I wouldn't have to upgrade for at least 3-4 years. Also I thought the RX 5700 was already pretty close to beating the 2060 super?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Buy a new gpu or wait for raytracing?"

I can go within about $20 for a GPU if needed but would still be an Rx 5700. I was also thinking ray-tracing would be spendy but didn't know for it's being put in consoles which is weird. So which one would you recommend? I am able to overclock. Do I just spend much more for a better GPU to last longer and overclock it? I want the gpu to be under 280 or I will have to remove the drive bays. For the case does it seem like I can take out certain bays and leave the rest? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vghj4D/phanteks-eclipse-p400-tempered-glass-atx-mid-tower-case-ph-ec416ptg_wt

Which one specifically would you recommend? I would rather not have a reference card but am not sure.

Here are the ones I'm eyeballing. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tFGnTW/asus-radeon-rx-5700-8-gb-tuf-gaming-x3-oc-video-card-tuf-3-rx5700-o8g-gaming https://pcpartpicker.com/product/NLPgXL/powercolor-radeon-rx-5700-8-gb-red-dragon-video-card-axrx-5700-8gbd6-3dhroc https://pcpartpicker.com/product/K8MTwP/msi-radeon-rx-5700-8-gb-mech-oc-video-card-radeon-rx-5700-mech-oc https://pcpartpicker.com/product/xsYQzy/xfx-radeon-rx-5700-8-gb-video-card-rx-57xl8mfg6

So the rx 5500xt may be between $170 - $250 unless it is really beefy then I can seeing it costly at most $275.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "New Navi"

That is what I am questioning. I can see that happening but unlikely. If it is worse than the rx 570 then it absolutely will be that price or it will be dead at launch. If it is better or about the same then I can see it being anywhere from $130-$150.

These three tiers are how I see these new gpus and their pricing. If the rx 5600 series won't happen then I feel the rx 5500xt will be a big jump from the rx 5500 for performance. If the rx 5600 doesn't exist then I see the rx 5500xt being 1660ti performance for about $250 and seeing the rx 5500 being rx 580 performance for 4gb for $160

High tier anything above rx 5700 above $475

mid-high tier rx 5700xt above $425 rx 5700 above $350

mid tier rx 5600xt (depending on if it will exist) about $280 rx 5600 (depending on if it will exist) about $230

Low tier rx 5500xt about $180 rx 5500 about $130

This is about the pricing we have seen in the past.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "New Navi"

I think the 1660 super may try and get close to the rx 5700. Because the rx 5700 is so far ahead for only a bit more. https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1660-Ti-vs-AMD-RX-5700/4037vs4046

Maybe the rx 5500 will be the bottom low end. Like the cheapest option. Then the rx 5500xt will be 1660 up to 1660ti performance but they would undercut it in price. Because there is talk they will do Radeon 5, 7, and 9 like ryzen's naming scheme which would stop some confusion. There will be something to either A, beat or at least compete against the rx 590 or B, beat the 1660 or 1660 ti, depending on what their goal is. There must be a card around $240-$275 range because a jump from the rx 5500 (which would be around sub $175) up to the rx 5700 costing upwards of $330.

Yep, which might be what happens with the supposed rx 5500xt and rx 5600 series. Or they may wait to announce the rx 5500xt and rx 5600 for when they release more info on the 1660 super so they can counter it getting rid of most competition.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "New Navi"

I would imagine either the rx 5500xt would be 1660ti performance for $250 or they will release a rx 5600 and rx 5600xt for anywhere from rx 590 to vega 56 performance range for a good price. Like rx 5600 being $230 and rx 5600xt being $260.

It depends on the pricing because if the price is too high then the rx 570 is better. The rx 5500 has to have a good price for anywhere from $125-$150.

So far it is holding up amazingly and has high quality leather strap for the headset band. It doesn’t mess up my hair either. It has nice comfortable over ear cups. It has high quality products especially for the price. I would look up reviews but give it a 9/10. I just don’t like that I put on my headset and screw up the volume with the knob. It may be just human error.

The only thing I disagree with is having two instead of three monitors because I can’t use two for a game because it would have a bezel in the middle.

Yeah I realize that. But I am just wondering if one ultrawide 2560x1080p and eventually getting two more 1080p so racing games would be better and what not compared to one 2560x1440p monitor.

An rx 580 can do high settings 80fps for 1440p look it up on gpucheck.com

I would recommend the mx330 g instead of the standard mx330 because it is only $5 to $10 more because it has a tempered glass side panel instead of acrylic. I would recommend a cheaper rx 580 if you want because they aren’t seriously too much better but it is kind of personal preference.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Upgrading opinions"

Yes but the 2600 is only $133 compared to $100 for the 1600 so I would recommend the 2600.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What to cut to save costs?"

Yes there is a point because know I know roughly what tier of GPUs I want to run games for settings. So there is a point because the only thing that might change is the cpu and gpu everything else is interchangeable but I do understand what you mean.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Help me optimize this midrange gaming/work build"

  • 4 months ago

If you are just gaming then I personally would rather get the 3600 but the 3700x is great if you want to go for that. I am thinking the same thing for overclocking the cpu because you can’t get too much performance from the 3600 by overclocking. Choosing either the rx 580 or 1660 is kind of a personal preference for what performs the beat for your games. The rx 580 is cheaper but the 1660 can be slightly better. Other than that I think your build is really good. The rx580 can run quite a few games 1440p ultra settings 60 FPS and 1440p high settings 80fps in most games.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Upgrading opinions"

I recommend a 3600 although you will have to upgrade your motherboard to altleast a b450 but otherwise I would recommend the 2600 and save the left over money for a gpu in the next year or so.
