Lots of gpu talk and warm deals lately on here and as a recent member of the PCMR I dig it.

Looking for something in the next 2 weeks, sold my used rx580 4gb this morning..didn't like the lack of backplate or the condition in which it came from ebay.

What do you think of this? $160 AR and includes games I value at a good $40-$45 and even 3 months of XBGPStick Out TongueC. I hope that can stack with the $1 3 months XBGPStick Out TongueC for new subs.

There is only one review on amazon where its listed at $185.

Posting to get some opinions and let people know of this deal.

Isn't worth it honestly. 5500XT is mostly a side upgrade to the 580.

This card is 160.. Not 300-500. Closest NV comparison for price is 1650 super. If there was a choice between the two the performance is a wash...the 1650S is probably the better choice if your target is 160 bucks. But it mostly comes down to if you are an AMD or NV fan. Both choices are good. Not mentioning the AMD FUD since I haven't had a single bad experience.

I wish it had Monster Hunter, but good deal regardless! Some people have been having a lot of issues with their Navi GPUs but my 5700xt has been pretty good!

Radeon cards have had a lot of issues with their drivers in 2020. I don't want this to devolve into a "Nvidia vs. Radeon" thread, only to recommend folks do a little Googling on Radeon driver issues in the news to make an informed decision before buying.

Good luck and may all your purchases be regret-free.

As previous two comments mentioned, just do the research you may thank us later!

I have two all AMD systems (3700x/Radeon VII & 1800x/Vega64, so you know I'm a super fan!)) and I will continue to purchase AMD in the future, but the 5xxx XT series seem to have major issues with their driver releases for months now, it's fairly serious but AMD has recognized there's an issue and is investigating.

The driver woes actually affect Vega, Radeon and 5000 series cards, but seems not a lot of people purchased the other two product lines.

Ultimately what that means for potential buyers, is this boils down to two questions:
  1. Is it hardware? Hardware issue means you may be stuck (or have to go through long RMA process) with a product that does not meet your expectations.

  2. Is it software? Software issue means you just have to deal with it until they can figure it out, but there's nothing wrong with the physical product.

the risk of problems with AMD cards are too great given their pricing in the $300 - $500 category. consumers want a good experience not a headache. AMD CPUs on the other hand rival Intel nicely. Real world experience proves both to be true.
