RX 5600 XT on old system
Recently my trusty old R9 290x went r.i.p. so i decided to get a RX 5600xt to take its place but i'm running into some (maybe predictable) issues.
The system is quite old today and running stock :
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R with an i7 950
Corsair Black 12Gb DDR3 1600
FSP Raider 650W 80+Silver PSU
feeding into a Samsung SyncMaster P2270 22"(DVI) screen
I used a DVI to HDMI cable with hopes of running the new GFX but upon booting the pc i get the a corrupted Gigabyte splash screen - all i see are some large colored squares flashing/moving a bit but past that bios screen it boots fine into windows and i installed Adrenaline 2020 20.1.3 drivers (with a previous safe mode DDU clean ).
After driver restart, i get system freeze when i try to restart,shutdown PC or when trying to run a game into the login window like GW2. Opening Firefox is fine though - hard reset is needed.
My lack of experience tells me the system simply isn't up to the task of running such card and bottlenecks it but still, i was wondering if a DVI to DisplayPort cable could work the problem out or maybe something else related to Bios settings/version/drivers, or is the card defective?
I understand the issue could be several things but any advice on this would be appreciated as i see myself shelving the card until i build a new system which can take a while.
