Probably the only reason to really get this over a non blower card is the resale value in the future due to limited availability of these.

This was a much better price late November (about $370 + about $60 of Rakuten SuperCash). We can't go back in time but this isn't a deal. I do not recommend the card. It ran hot, loud, and constantly crashed my computer. Some of that was driver issues but it was not a good card. Others haven't had the same problems but if you're going to get a 5700XT, don't buy this version. Get a Sapphire or something similar.

There are plenty of other 5700XT cards for $370-$390 that will perform better than this one. The MSI Evoke 5700 XT is only $335 right now from Newegg.

Here's the $335 deal (the deal is still going on: https://slickdeals.net/share/iphone_app/fp/543620)

Or, buy one of the <$300 MSI 5700 cards. If you want, you should be able to bios flash to an XT version. Even if you don't do that, those are much better 5700 series cards than this one.

FWIW, I bought one last november (not 50th anniversary, just the regular blower version) and it's been rock solid, especially with the latest drivers. Put it on water last week but even with the blower, it wasn't all that bad really. Reference PCB's are great too, just make sure you do a clean install.

Agree with you on the Sapphire recommendation (or even a Gigabyte).

Don't agree with you on the MSI card. Reviews were pretty crappy and to add insult to injury, it was a bit sickening to see MSI responding to the reviews saying "Remember, it has a 3yr warranty!". That's just distraction tactics for a card they didnt get right the first time ...or probably the second time, for that matter.

It looks like the issues are mostly fixed with the updated MSI cards from what I've read with new reviews. I have had good experience with MSI's customer service when dealing with a motherboard that needed replacement. Even if they have problems, the MSI cards will almost certainly be better than this VisionTek card. Plus this only has a 1 year warranty.

I don't think any of the 5700 series cards are worth getting though; I'm waiting for the next round of products later this year or next year.

5700xt isn't something to celebrate.. until there are Zero product problems. If you look at AMDs roadmap these cards will get limited support when next gen comes out.. remember back with 1st gen tablets? Hard pass on being $400 beta testers..
Well, this is just lying. They are still going to support it.

Does this come with the AMD Raise The Game bundle with Resident Evil 3, Monster Hunter World Icebourne, and 3 months of XBox Gamepass?
