[Memory Express] Gigabyte Radeon RX590 GAMING 8GB Rev. 2.0 PCI-E w/ HDMI, Triple DP - $239.99

Looks like these are on clearance - since the sale ends DEC 31, 2019

Just a heads up if you need a video card now, or just wait until BF for more deals...

** Includes EITHER Boarderlands 3 or Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Breakpoint - plus 3-months of XBOX Game pass for PC **

Not sure if there's any price match opportunities ...

I think ME charges $9 shipping, but has the AMD promo, so better to pm and buy from ME.

Though such view is not held widely throughout the universe some extraterrestrial races view us to be a barbaric race. I would have to agree with them. Moreover planet earth is being quarantined and monitored specifically since we detonated the atomic bomb. Many extraterrestrial races are excited to see us evolve so we can join our galactic family of light.

Little off topic....
But is it a good idea to use crossfire to put two of these to support 6 monitors?

Not a gamer at all

Just want a bigger screen... with more resolution

Tempting...but I've always had issues with ATI drivers.

15 years ago an ATI driver update made all my videos play upside down so I had to rollback. 5 years ago I had another one that gave me all sorts of trouble with HDMI. Not sure if it's my luck.

Be positive. That was a long long time ago...

im building an HTPC for gaming in a node 202 case. I am going to get a rzen 2600 as my CPU, is this a good graphics card or should i opt for a GTX 1660?

I have an RX 590 and I am pretty happy with it. I don't play shooters, but I find it good enough in 1440p for RPGs and strategies.

Witcher 3 could do with a few more fps at 1440p (I have a Ryzen 5 3600x) but GTA is fine.
My next upgrade is to 5700 XT as well :)

Is it worth pairing this with a i5 2500 and 8gb? Or better off with newer CPU?

the 5700 XT with that TRIXX software is outstanding. i am almost going toe to toe in FPS with a 2080. ALMOST lol.

i just need this to last 1-2 years and then i can replace it. i hope the 2600 is decent for the next 3-4 years.

a newer CPU wouldn't hurt but im sure it'll still work. you'll just have a bottleneck until you upgrade.

I have 6 gigabye RX580 cards and they all have fan failures. some within weeks of purchase date.
I have had equal issues with any Asus duals. some within weeks of purchase date.
I have had similar issues with zotac fans. (but zotac graphic processors themselves are above average performance.)

Overall, you get what you pay for. This is a decent deal but be prepared to replace the fan.

Overall, my favorite card is the MSI Gaming X. They run 10 degrees cooler than any other card I have and I've had zero fan failures after "stress testing" them for nearly 2 years straight.
That being said, I haven't looked at current generation cards. I assume they have similar quality though.

That's great. You won't have another problem for 5 more years, then.
