    No not even close to $800. Maybe like 150?

    Nah I got one for $200 a year ago, and they depreciated further with the release of the RTX 2000's. Remember they are also refurbs also they are EVGA backed for a year.

    How does it compare to the 5700 TX? I'd be willing to pay more if we are talking 25%+ Boost.. if it's marginal and I won't know the difference.. then the deal sounds great..

    It's more like 10%

    The XT is definitely stronger, right? The regular 5700 would be marginal. At least according to that link. Make sure the XT is selected.

    Even if you're not looking at UserBenchmark, the 5700 XT will outperform the 980 Ti. The plain 5700 would be a minimal improvement.

    There's an open box MSI 5700 XT EVOKE for $383 and an open box MSI Air Boost RX Vega 64 for $272 at my MC if either of those would be preferable.

    Otherwise you're looking at around $350 to $440 for a 5700 XT.

    Toki,

    Can you PM me where you live? If you are all for running to your local MC, I'll be happy paying you a acquisition fee if it results in me saving money have you buy and ship to me.

    is that something you are cool with if the deals are there?

    Just as an earmark, anything from userbenchmark is on auto ignore because of it's strong bias for Intel and Nvidia.

    Well with the XT it's a 20% which means probably even higher accounting for the market share bias.

    Right. I'm just saying if he wants to go the XT route, and doesn't mind paying a little extra, he'd get more out of one of those cards than the 980 Ti.

    While not really a big upgrade, Corsair is giving me a H55 as a replacement for my H50 AiO unit. Better than digging thru the warehouse to find any H50 and slap a "refurbished" label on it as a return. I'm doubting I'll get the cross shipped unit before Christmas but if I do I'm going to finish my living room build ASAP. I'm extremely curious to see if that second 380 4GB will work properly once it's being properly cooled. I'm also just as curious to see 1)how an I5 Ivy Bridge runs current games 2)crossfire on a dell OEM board. About 2, the board is reading both successful. I didn't want to test crossfire until knowing for certain the second 380 is working as it should, but with how bad the Corsair H50 was grinding I decided to just use the warranty.

    If this build proves sufficient I am heavily considering selling my remaining stuff here at a discounted price along with some other things. The only thing I'm short on is ram, but DDR3 is stupid cheap with 8gb found on ebay anywhere from $15-$25 shipped. Imagine a 4 core cpu, mb, 8gb ram, and a decent to good case being around $100 total.

    Thinking about moving on from my 980.

    I however don't even know what I should be looking at for the 2xxx series. I mostly play WoW, FFXI, CoD on 1080i at the moment, but will be eventually moving to a dual 2k monitor setup.

    RX 5700 is sufficient for 1440p @ 60hz. If you're looking to push 120/144 you need a 2070 super/5700 XT or better. I run a 2080 and have issues maintaining over 100fps in most games without dropping down settings.

    Currently running a 75 hz, still get away with a 5700?

    Should be fine, you'll have to play with settings. If you want to be sure then try to find a deal on a standard 2070. People probably offloading used ones like crazy rn before CES.

    Could also wait for CES yourself and see what kind of pricing next Gen cards are going to end up at. We're right at the end of this generation, next Gen mid range gpus will shit on the current ones if the rumor mill can be believed.

    Didn’t even realize the end of the generation was upcoming. Just gonna wait to see what the new ones will be then.

    Thanks

    Can also buy a 5700 and flash to a 5700 XT BIOS. I guess Navi isn't dependent on the memory like the Vega 56 cards were.

    Pulled trigger on a Lian Li O11 XL because I finally found a black version available. I keep tweaking my next build, and I'm leaning Ryzen (3900 or 3950) over 9900K, but can't get it out of my head that the next zen generation will drop like 1 month after I hit "buy" -.-;;
