    Pretty solid price, though I wonder if its worth just buying either a 2060 Super or a 5700(xt) instead

    • +5 votes

      2060 "super" deal is the ventus at about the same price. This is likely the better card - beyond the GPU being better gigabytes 3 fan cards will probably run quieter, cooler and feel more quality (thanks to a metal backplate vs apparently a plastic one).

      This vs the 5700xt is an interesting one. About 5% less performance then the xt, but thanks to the awful pricing on the partner xt's and the shoddy cooling from MSI it may be worth going for this. Depends on what the gigabyte model was running for? If it's the same price I'd probably just go for that. But if it's $30+ more expensive I'd go for this.

      *Gigabytes card is stupidly overpriced. Unless you're willing to go with the reference this is the better choice.

        An increased number of fans does not make it run quieter. If anything it's noisier because there's more of them. And if you have 3 of them, they are going to be smaller fans than a dual fan setup. Smaller fans are noisier for the same CFM because they push less air per rotation and therefore have to spin faster to push the same amount of air as a bigger fan. Which in turn produces more noise.

        I have had tri-fan and dual-fan GPUs and prefer dual-fan.

          It really, really depends. There are a huge number of factors here. For one, all fans are not created equal. Also, the rest of the cooler matters a lot - a better heatpipe configuration could require less RPM to keep it running at a reasonable temperature, or better thermal pads/paste, etc.

          Sure, if you take both a dual fan card and a tri fan card and crank them both to 100% rpm, the tri fan will probably be louder. BUT I wouldn't be willing to say for sure which will remain cooler.

          If you are super concerned about noise levels, just wait for the reviews. Gamers Nexus tests GPUs at a normalized sound level to determine the efficiency of the cooling setup - look for their stuff. :)

            These things go both ways. For the sake of a fair argument, you have to assume everything else is the same and compare just the size and quantity of the fans themselves. Nothing stops a dual fan card from having a better heatpipe or better fan.

            Sure, if you take both a dual fan card and a tri fan card and crank them both to 100% rpm, the tri fan will probably be louder. BUT I wouldn't be willing to say for sure which will remain cooler.

            I can't comment on temps, only on noise. Also the claim that 3 fans is more premium because it will a metal backplate vs plastic backplate is bunk.

            As long as the card is not throttling, if I had to choose between lower temps or lower noise, I will take lower noise because I'm not touching the card so as long as it's operating within a safe temp range, it doesn't affect me. The noise on the other hand does.

      2060S and 2070 are VERY close in performance. The only real difference is that the 2070 has 2304 Cuda Cores, the 2060S 2176. Core clocks are higher on the Gigabyte RTX2060 Super 8GB GAMING OC vs this card (1815 MHz vs 1725 MHz). Think of the 2060S as being a 'newer' 2070, so I'd buy whichever is cheapest:

      IMO this is a great deal.
      I just ordered one, despite the fact that RTX2070 is only gonna be ~10% faster than my current card(GTX1070Ti) cos I want RTX features!!!

      Unlike the previous deal(Gigabyte RTX2070 Super Windforce OC for $755 delivered), this is Gaming OC model. Which means it's got 25+% larger heatsink and also come with extra 1 year warranty.

      Regarding 2060 Super vs 2070, I'd pick 2080 over 2070 Super(& 2070 over 2060 Super) simply cos they are slightly better & faster.

      5700XT vs RTX2070?
      I'd pick RTX2070 over 5700XT any day, I think 5700XT is slightly faster overall but it doesn't have RTX feature. :(
      If I'm gonna spend $600-$700+ on new GPU then I want the latest features, even games like Minecraft will support RTX soon.

      Cards with RTX feature will also be much faster for video rendering(e.g. DaVinci Resolve).
      If I didn't care about the RTX then I'd just go for used GTX1080Ti(~$700) which is faster than 5700XT, and fyi used GTX1080Ti price hasn't really changed in past 2 years.

      Another big factor is the running temperature and noise, don't know about you but I def want quite card that runs cool.
      RTX2070 is only 175W TDP, but 5700XT is 225W TDP (that's huge difference)
      This particular RTX2070(Gigabyte Gaming OC) should run very quite and cool all the time, even the lower end Windforce version should run much cooler and quieter than 5700XT with blower cooler.

      For under $600 you can only buy 5700XT with blower cooler, and they are super noisy and also run very hot.
      Gamers Nexus described it as "the worst stock cooler they have ever tested" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SAWtKEIYbw
      5700XT blower ran so hot and unstable, it shut down automatically while sitting in a game menu during Linus Tech review - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bmQPx9EJLA (8:23 on video)

      TBH I don't know why anyone would buy 5700XT unless they are totally clueless..

      p.s. yes I already know that all the AMD fanboys gonna hate this post.

    i think 5700xt is more bang for buck but yea if you want nvidia get this

  •  

    its an ok deal i guess. price is close to 5700

  •  

    Super is meant to replace this for the same price.

    PEACHY15 code is not working?
    Says "Looks like that's the wrong code. Please double-check and try again."

    Edit: nvm, code worked fine after I joined Ebay Plus.. soz I'm noob with this cos never bought anything off Ebay before.

    p.s. I think this card is great price($594 delivered) considering that it's not the Windforce OC model. Gaming OC model's got 25+% larger heatsink and also come with extra 1 year warranty.

    Looks like you also get two free games(Control & Wolfenstein Youngblood) with this card, https://au.aorus.com/event-detail.php?i=1063
