Which 5700xt?

I'm leaning towards sapphire, Not sure if the Nitro+ is worth it over the pulse? Or do I go a totally different direction?

Gigabyte, Imo great bang for the buck. Core & memory both run cool.




And 2 free games as well.

Gigabyte did cross my mind as an option. I just heard everyone raving about the sapphire cards.

The gigabyte card is almost on parity with the Nitro+. But the Nitro+ was a bit more expensive, which made the gigabyte card a better bang for the buck.


Both are definitely better options than pulse.


The Nitro+ recently got a price drop, I believe because of the competition. It's still a great option, especially with 10 bucks off on newegg.

I have the Gigabyte. Don't buy it. All ppl that have it have higher hot spot temp.

Get Pulse instead. I would go for Nitro tho if I was buying again.
