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 :

win7 64bit
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.

Thanks

The card isnt "too fast" for your system.




Your motherboard may need to have some sort of compatability thing enabled, such as boot from uefi, if it even existed on your motherboard.




I would try checking your motherboard bios update list, and see if anything mentions compatability with newer gpu's.


I would also try getting rid of the DVI to HDMI adapter, unless it was working for you previously. Is your DVI on screen DVI-D or I? That little sideways wide pin will either be blank around it, or have 4 pins around it. with 4 pins, it is DVI-I, blank around it is DVI-D

Might be worth it to use DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) to clean everything up and re-install new drivers.

Can't find any newer updates on bios/drivers on the motherboard and i think it lacks any UEFI bios options. The monitor port is DVI-I and the cable was bought just for the card.

I did use DDU twice in safe mode both with another card and with the new.

At the moment my reliable old HD 7850 is holding the load and I'm considering upgrade budgets to move to a new AMD system soon.

Thanks for the reply though.

Contact Gigabyte support, they provided me with a x58 bios with UEFI 3 years ago.

I suggest looking here.

These are modded BIOSs with all the bells and whistles for old motherboards.

This is how I got my X79 board to fully support NVMe booting.

On another note the FSP Raider was never very good so you might want to consider replacing that as well
