Description

Decided to upgrade the CPU and GPU - first time to go with a Radeon card. So far the XFX card is running pretty good. It just about beats the RTX 2070 Gaming Z that I had before. The i7 9700K is a beast, hopefully 8 cores will last at least a couple more years.

Did you have any driver problems with the 5700 XT?

Not so far no. It does run hotter than my RTX 2070 but I reduced the temps by undervolting the card.

Thank you so much for your input. I was debating between a 2070 and a 5700 XT and now I know that AMD is the way to go

The 5700 XT holds its own against the 2070 and 2060 Super so is a good choice if you aren’t bothered about ray tracing ( which to be honest is very overrated especially on the lower end cards). AMD are also offering two free games with a new 5700 XT here in Japan so that sealed the deal for me.

Yeah considering I would go for more FPS than ray tracing and low FPS, then I think the 5700 XT would be great. Thanks again so much for your help
