GPU upgrade advice

Hello everybody!

I am thinking about changing my Nitro RX 590 with something more powerful for a good price. Currently my two options are the Nitro+ Vega 64 (like new, for around 300 euros/350 USD), or the MSI RX 5700 evoke OC (new, at around 360 euros/ 396 USD). Selling my RX 590 for a good price I will be able to cover a major part of the upgrade price. These two options are the ones I can afford right now.

Which one should I prefer and why?

Thank you!

If I were in your place and the cost to uograde was ~€150 for the 5700, I'd consider it. Lower for V64. Else, I'd pass because either of the 2 options aren't significantly faster than the 590. Also, what resolution do you play @?

I play 1080p, ultra, and yes, i could enjoy higher fps with my 144Hz gaming monitor, which I can't afford to change now. After all we have image sharpening and VSR, right? If i sell the RX 590 for around 150-170 euros, I could cover a great part of the price, but not that much as you suggest. Especially for the Vega that would be about 160 euros to spend, which in my ears sounds good enough, and about 200 euros for the RX 5700. Thing is that for a used RX 590 it is difficult to achieve a better price than 170 euros I guess.

Have you seen the used market for the V64? You could get a better price. Same for 5700, but as those are new, they might not be that cheap or even available in used market.

The Vega price is the used gpu price in my country (Greece), on the contrary custom rx 5700s are still hard to get and a new one at the price of 360 euros is quite good, if some of the cost can be covered.

Not worth going for V64, RX 5700/ 2060 Super is a short way to go for you.

Which means, that I should stay with my Sapphire RX 590 Nitro+ SE or change to something like RX 5700 XT right?

My 5700 is about twice as fast as my GTX 1060. I don't see any difference between my 5700 and 5700 XT in gaming. I use the same rez and settings for both rigs in games but i don't stare at the fps.

Which means that in my case an upgrade with both alternatives is worth it?

Depends on your resolution and settings. The RX 590 is a good 1080 card. The 5700 is more for a 1440.
