Community Article 5700XT or 2070 Super? — Micro Center 5700XT or 2070 Super? Waffler Cleveland, OH ✭ August 29 in Help Choosing Parts I’m sorely tempted to buy the 5700XT because of its great price-to-performance ratio. On the NVIDIA side, only the 2070 Super approximates it in performance but costs $100 more. Both should power a 3440x1440 monitor decently (just single player games, Witcher 3, Metro series, etc.).  My concern is all those reports of bugs and glitches associated with AMD’s cards and drivers. I understand there are workarounds and such (like undervolting) but I really don’t want to deal with that. Are AMD’s problems really that bad or is it exaggerated? I’d rather spend the extra $100 for a headache free GPU but only if it’s confirmed that the Radeon cards are indeed problematic.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSPhillipT admin August 29 Hello @Waffler Working with technical support, we do get a fair amount more issues with the 5700XT than the nvidia GPUs.  I do feel like the 5700XT is great on paper, and fine if you are the type of person willing to troubleshoot/put in the extra effort to save a bit more.  Otherwise, I always recommend nvidia GPUs to my friends when they ask for build lists.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin August 29 I've heard that the latest drivers have helped resolve some of the stability issues with the 5700XT, but I haven't worked with that card in a while so I'm not sure exactly what the consensus is on that right now.  You could always purchase the 5700XT and see if you experience any issues, and exchange it if so. We do have a 30-day return period.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Waffler Cleveland, OH ✭ August 29 Thanks, that kind of decides it for me. I’m willing to spend extra for a trouble-free product (well, relatively speaking anyway).  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin August 29 The 2070 Super is still a great card in its own right so I think you'll be happy with your purchase.

I went by and the card is back on the shelf. 7 yellow price stickers on it when I got it. Wonder how many people will get screwed by this card.  Looking over that issue, there shouldn't be anything that would cause a PSU to fry. From what was posted, that issue will cause higher thermals due to reduced mounting pressure between the heatsink and GPU die, which would cause higher thermals on the die itself and as a result, thermal throttling. Even if a GPU heatsink is not attached, it should not cause any issues at the PCIe power connectors, or subsequent PSU connection to the GPU. Melting PSU cables/connectors is typically a result of too much current being pulled through them or incorrect pinout of the PSU cable connector/wrong cable plugged in (8 pin EPS vs 8 pin PCIe). Checking the serial of the card, it was manufactured in March of 2020, which should have been free of this manufacturing defect according to the article linked. If the card is indeed back on the shelf, it would've had to pass extensive testing to make sure it functions to normal specifications. This would include making sure a driver is loaded and that the card can handle sustained stress under a 3D load. To be safe, I'll forward this over to your local Micro Centers management team and have them double check the card as it's always worth making sure nothing slips through the cracks. In the meantime, I would recommend awaiting a response from a manager of the store in regards to your PSU and what options you may have with us. You can also check with the manufacturer of the PSU as it's possible you can RMA the PSU through them for a replacement if the unit itself is at fault. 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Rx 5700 + r5 3600 or rx 5700xt + 2600 — Micro Center Rx 5700 + r5 3600 or rx 5700xt + 2600 Sergio ✭ April 15 in Help Choosing Parts I'm building a new pc soon, I want to know which option is better. Would there be bottleneck between the r5 2600 and 5700 xt? Thanks in advance 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TheITDad ✭✭ April 15 I don't believe that the 5700xt will be bottle necked by the r5 2600.  Only place I can think of is if you get some more cpu intensive games and were running like ultra settings 1440p.  But I can't tell you for sure if you would get bottle necked by that cpu perhaps someone with more direct knowledge could tell you but I would be willing to bet you wouldn't. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin April 15 There shouldn't be any bottlenecks, or at best it'd be minor. The 5700xt + 2600x would be the better combination because of the GPU difference. Also TheITDad said: I don't believe that the 5700xt will be bottle necked by the r5 2600.  Only place I can think of is if you get some more cpu intensive games and were running like ultra settings 1440p.  But I can't tell you for sure if you would get bottle necked by that cpu perhaps someone with more direct knowledge could tell you but I would be willing to bet you wouldn't. So resolution is actually a great equalizer for CPUs, because as resolution goes up you become more and more GPU bound. For many titles at 1080p Intel still enjoys some fairly solid gains over AMD in the gaming department, but at 1440p that difference is reduced quite a bit and at 4k they're practically identical for most titles. 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Powercolor Radeon 5700XT Dual fan warranty — Micro Center Powercolor Radeon 5700XT Dual fan warranty ZliZec ✭ April 29 edited April 29 in Customer Service Questions Hi, First, sorry for my English. I bought this card about two weeks ago and it has some problems with signal from HDMI port from time to time. It's an open box item and I know I have 30 days return period, but I really like the card and got it for a very good price and would like to keep it if possible. My question is what options I have? Can I return the card to Micro Center for repair or replacement or I'll have to deal with Powercolor? I would also like to know what kind of warranty I have. Could anyone please check by my order number and give me the right information. At MC store, where I bought the card I've been told it comes with only 90 days warranty, my receipt says 1 Year limited warranty and Powercolor website says 2 Years warranty for this model. The reference number is [removed for privacy].  Thanks. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin April 29 Hello @ZliZec! Welcome to the Community.  First things first, go with Powercolor's information on the warranty for this. It's a two-year warranty, our information appears to be incorrect. 90-day warranties only apply to refurbished units, this is just an open-box.  As for what you can do, if you return the card to Micro Center we would refund/credit you the original amount paid for it, so you'd only get the open-box amount back. We don't actually repair graphics cards or fulfill the manufacturer's warranty on them. If you want to keep this graphics card, your best bet is to contact Powercolor directly.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TS_BryantA admin April 29 @ZliZec Good afternoon and thank you for your question regarding your purchase. After review you do have a few options available to you. If you would like to return the card for a replacement, you may do so, but would be paying the difference for a new card if the item was new out of box. We do cover the warranty of the clearance options for at least 1 year, and through Powercolor it is a 2 year warranty.  If you would like to keep the card and go through the manufacturer warranty for replacement, this may be done by calling Powercolor directly at (909) 444-0577. I would call and confirm the options available as soon as able that way you are also within your 30 day return in case you decide to return this for a different Graphics Card. I hope this has helped, and if you have any additional questions please let us know. Thank you for contacting Micro Center Community, stay safe and have a great day! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter ZliZec ✭ April 29 Thank you guys for quick response and detailed information. Good to know the card will be covered by warranty for next two years. I'll try to contact Powercolor technical support first,  to see what they have to say about my problem. Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the day. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

It began when I was loading a game, when my monitor turned black and wouldn't respond. After manually rebooting my PC, my monitor wouldn't connect, and the only way I could fix this is by disconnecting my GPU and using the onboard graphics and then turning off my PC and reconnecting the GPU once again. I've tried using DDU to uninstall my drivers and reinstall them. However, I feel as though my efforts have only exacerbated the problem, as now my PC black screens when I try to reinstall drivers, whereas this was not a problem in the early stages of the troubleshooting efforts. I'm a noob at this sort of stuff, this is my first build, so I apologize if the solution is obvious or if I royally fucked up somewhere. I plan on going into microcenter soon to get some in-person help, but for the time being, any suggestions are appreciated. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/3NBqJb 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments ChristopherP ✭ May 26 It may be helpful to mention that when I first began using the card, when I used the newest drivers, everything worked fine, but the performance of the card was subpar. So I uninstalled those drivers with DDU, while not is safe mode (dumb I know), and installed the previous version, specifically as provided from PowerColor's website, (Still AMD drivers). With this new driver, performance was great, almost too great as I found myself worried the card may overheat with how hot and loud it was running. It was with these drivers the problems first emerged (after about a day or two of use), so it may be that I overheated my card, or that the PCIe cables were fried ( I checked for physical damage but didn't see any from the PSU or GPU side). 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin May 27 First things first, AMD actually provides their own tool to clean uninstall drivers, so you can use that instead of DDU: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/gpu-601 I'd also suggest reinstalling your chipset drivers, and in the worst case, you could reinstall Windows.  I used to have a 5700XT, and I ran into similar issues at times. AMD's newer cards unfortunately have a bit of a reputation for having unstable drivers. There's a number of things you can do to try to relieve the issue, besides reinstalling the drivers. If you have any other programs running often in the background like Discord, Chrome, Spotify, etc... disable hardware acceleration in them, that could potentially help. If your temperatures are getting a little high, try upping your fan curve or tweaking the power settings and/or clock speeds (if you go that route, I would recommend looking up some guides online for how to do this properly, because power tweaking shouldn't be taken lightly).   If the games you're playing allow it, trying enabling or disabling DirectX 12 API. I found that enabling DX12 in the games that support helped to reduce my crashing issues and it boosted performance quite a bit.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

This is certainly an interesting situation, and it appears you've done quite a bit of troubleshooting already. Based on the details you've provided, I am leaning towards PCIe 4.0 being the culprit here. The fact that the GTX 760 (PCIe 3.0 card) worked fine in your system, and that your 5700XT works fine in your friends system (likely a PCIe 3.0 slot, given the older Nvidia graphics card), leads me to believe this is related to the PCIe bandwidth configuration. To test this, can you use your friends GPU to get back into the BIOS, navigate to Settings > Miscellaneous and adjust PCIe Slot Configuration to Gen 3. Afterwards, reinstall your RX 5700 XT and see if you can get into BIOS with it. If you get visuals, this will confirm that something is up with how the PCIe Gen 4 interface is interacting with your card, and would likely require a BIOS update on the motherboard or VBIOS update on the graphics card to resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve your issue, I would look into isolating as much as you can. Remove all but one DIMM of memory, remove your SSD, try a basic known working monitor/cable, and see if it can POST. In the meantime, I'll look around online to see if others are experiencing a similar issue with your hardware configuration. 5 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Answers ZoomZoom ✭ August 25 @TSMichaelB, Thank you so much. The PCIe was the issue. The Motherboard and GPU are PCIe 4.0 but the Riser cable was Gen3. It was such a quick fix I couldn't believe it. You sir are the best! I really appreciate the quick response as well. You have a good day. The Computer is working beautifully now.

I completely forgot to ask about a riser, given most ITX builds now utilize risers for vertical mounts for a slimmer form factor. Happy to hear you were able to get to the bottom of it and resolve it. Should you have any further issues, please do not hesitate to reach out! Enjoy your system and have a wonderful rest of your week. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Need Help Choosing Parts — Micro Center Need Help Choosing Parts ekatecarp ✭ September 18 in Help Choosing Parts I put this parts list together and am looking for some advice. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-amd.aspx?load=2a8839eb-5aa8-4e40-925b-2ac5c1f4ff2c 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin September 18 Build looks pretty good all around, although I'd choose a different model for your video card. At $380 for that 2060 you're bumping up against 2060 Super and RX 5700XT pricing. Instead something like the EVGA RTX 2060 KO would be a better choice since it's about $300-310 instead, or just go with the 2060 Super or 5700XT at $400. That said, I expect with the new RTX 3000 cards starting to roll out to retailers we may see price cuts on the current lineup of video cards soon. I'd also recommend getting DDR4-3600 memory since that's the sweetspot for third generation Ryzen CPUs.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Build Now or Wait? — Micro Center Build Now or Wait? incrediblepulk ✭ August 15 in Help Choosing Parts I currently am rocking a 2015 laptop for gaming that is on its last legs. I would like to build a PC now using microcenter before I move away from a nearby store...I have heard new tech coming soon from microcenter staff and people talking on this forum and am unsure what to do. No matter what I do its going to be a big upgrade from my previous computer. Here is my list that I have narrowed down too if I build now with the help of friends and the admin on this page.

Community Article I have spent way to long on this, please help. — Micro Center I have spent way to long on this, please help. Zarkil ✭ July 30 in Help Choosing Parts The goal of my PC is 1440p at 60 fps on high (not super ultra type) quality and it’s only for gaming. I will be playing on a TV instead of a monitor. I basically play RPG type games and tend to heavily mod them (thus the 2TB SSD). I use WIFI only and would prefer Bluetooth 5 over 4.2, I know I can add both with a $50 card. I’m not big into overclocking, just minor adjustments to GPU with Afterburner type stuff (wait, I DO plan to enable XMP so I guess I AM hardcore after all). https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=a7a56bba-82df-4f7b-9994-2a8350e12905  So my main questions/concerns are; Should I go with B550 or get a cheaper B450 and add WIFI\Bluetooth with card? If so what one? The 3600 is good enough now but options are nice, on the flip side a year from now B550 will probably be cheaper and have more options. How much does CL on ram matter? Should I stick with the CL18 3600 or is it worth the $20 extra for CL16 3600?  The RX 5700 XT is stable now right? Most people seem to think so and it preforms better than the 2060 super that was my original choice. Do I need the 650W PSU or would 550W be ok? It’s only $20 more so I played it safe.  Thank you for the help! I was a loyal PC gamer that got married, had kids, and my job turned into a career so I turned to consoles for my gaming needs (yes I’m ashamed of myself). Grabbed a HP OMEN laptop on sale a few years ago and remembered what I was missing. Been a surprisingly great laptop but the girl is showing her age now so time to move on. I figured it would be simple to upgrade but my God has everything changed! Hope everyone is doing well and again, thank you for any help because this is driving me crazy 😉 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin July 30 In your case, since you specifically want Bluetooth 5.0, I'd stick with the B550 board since the Bluetooth 5 cards we carry start about $40. If you chose a cheaper B450 and then bought a card it'd be about the same price, but the B550 has other features that you may want to utilize in the future like PCIe 4.0 capabilities.  The RAM speed discussion is a little complicated. Others could weigh in on this more than me, but CL16 is technically faster than CL18 because it will have lower latency. I don't know how much of a difference it would make though, so whether it's "worth it" I can't really say. If that money would be better spent elsewhere on your build I wouldn't worry about it, but if that extra $20 isn't going to otherwise make a difference on your build, I'd personally probably go for the CL16. I've heard the stability of the drivers with the 5700/XT cards has improved. Some people's 5700XT's have worked flawlessly since day one even when the drivers were known to be poor. I say unless you specifically want to have access to the NVENC encoder on the RTX cards, go for the 5700XT. If you find you're having issues, GPU's do come with a 30-day return policy.  I'd stick with 650W for the PSU. It's a good sweetspot to match up with mid and high-end video cards.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Scottyg420 ✭ August 1 Drivers are stable? Is that a joke? They still are having a ton of issues, it depends on the brand of cars you get.  Make sure you do a lot of research on the 5700xt. I just got an ASUS ROG 5700xt and it fried my 750w gold evga powersupply. After doing research ASUS issued a notice stating to bring the card to a ASUS authorized repair place so they can fix an issue. Something with pins not being long enough. of course a microcenter employee recommend a open box one to me that haven’t been fixed. Thank god my powersupply was the only thing the card broke. Put my old 2060 and 500w bronze in and no issues.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Scottyg420 ✭ August 1 650W is not high enough for most 5700xt. That’s the recommended minimum but your gonna have issues. The manufacturer of my card list that as the minimum but recommendeds higher.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin August 1 Scottyg420 said: 650W is not high enough for most 5700xt. That’s the recommended minimum but your gonna have issues. The manufacturer of my card list that as the minimum but recommendeds higher.  650W is plenty of power for all 5700XT's, short of custom VBIOS power mods/shunt mods. Under the ATX/PCI-SIG standards, an 8 pin connector is to pull no more than 150W of power, while 6 pin connectors are to pull no more than 75W, with the PCIe slot itself providing up to 75W of power. If we assume the worst case scenario of two 8-pin connectors, this would be 375W total for the card, leaving you roughly 275W of power for the remainder of your platform. As long as you are not pairing your system with a high-power consumption platform (X299 Intel, AMD Threadripper), 650W should be fine.  Scottyg420 said: Drivers are stable? Is that a joke?

Put my old 2060 and 500w bronze in and no issues.   The brand of cards have nothing to do with driver stability. All 5700XT's use the exact same silicon designed by AMD and fabricated by TSMC, the board partners simply design their own PCB and cooling solutions for non-reference designed cards. The drivers themselves simply dictate how the cards interact with your OS. As far as stability goes, that will depend entirely on the applications being ran, and whether any errata is listed for them in the driver release notes. Understand that this is not an AMD issue, as Nvidia has their fair share of driver errata as well. You can find these issues mentioned on the driver download pages for each respective driver: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-rad-win-20-7-2. Here you can see a list of fixed and known issues:  You'll find a similar list for Nvidia as well, albeit with different issues/resolutions: https://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/451.67/451.67-win10-win8-win7-release-notes.pdf There exists no drivers free of issues in terms of performance and stability. Human error will always find itself in everything we do, so it's important to keep that in mind.  If you find issues that are not listed in the driver release notes/errata list for the drivers you are using, I would recommend reaching out to AMD to report the issues. If you are aware of design flaws with a particular card, I would would like to see a source documenting those issues so I can better educate myself for future reference.

I figured it would be simple to upgrade but my God has everything changed! Hope everyone is doing well and again, thank you for any help because this is driving me crazy 😉 I agree with @TSTonyV 's recommendation, though mostly due to the fact that newer TV's are starting to provide FreeSync support via HDMI, and you'll definitely see a difference in your gaming experience with adaptive sync enabled. May I ask which TV you plan to use for gaming? Most 4k 120hz TV's allow 1440p 120hz mode via HDMI on PC's, and you can also use FreeSync if they support it. My Samsung NU8000 55 inch and LG OLED B9 55 inch TV's support operation in these modes, and both support adaptive sync technology. This, combined with the low input lag in their respective game modes makes for an incredible couch gaming experience, especially in RPG's, which I am a fan of myself. As for the memory debate, definitely go with the CL16. $20 difference is worth it in my opinion, especially when you factor in the quality of the IC's if you ever plan to do any manual overclocking in the future. AMD's Robert Hallock did a fantastic job documenting the difference in frequency/timings and their impact on gaming performance if you were looking for an interesting read: https://community.amd.com/community/gaming/blog/2017/07/14/memory-oc-showdown-frequency-vs-memory-timings.

The 3700X is great and quite capable in gaming but the 10600k is definitely the better gaming CPU by a fair bit. CSGO might be an individual exception to this as I believe it tends to favor AMD, but even then I think at best you'd have the same performance with both. In basically every other game the 10600k is definitely better. You do have to purchase an aftermarket cooler but even at stock settings without an overclock the 10600k will give you better FPS than the 3700X.  1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter incrediblepulk ✭ August 14 If I change over to the i5-10600k should I change my graphics card to the 2060 KO ultra?
