    Vega NOOB

    off topic, but is the 3 fans in front not enough airflow?!? What more do you need for air lol. On a side note the Vega cards are known to run hot. but it looks like you got a deal with the 3 games and for the price it beats a RTX 2060. Ray-Tracing is useless on the lower end cards anyways. Last AMD card I owned for gaming was a Radeon 4870. Its been a few years. Actually I bought a 290X at one point for mining. Never used it for any games though. I have a evga clc 280 in front and even when a had a gtx 1080 ftw hybrid there was not enough airflow , there are no vent on the top of the case so there is nowhere for the air to go except a single 120mm fan at the rear. it is a horrible case for airflow

    Vega NOOB

    So far the card is great the only issue I had was my fault by not running driver sweeper before and I cant use Msi afterburber . I do miss the overlay but coming from a 1080 that I gave to my son when his 1060 went out I really dont notice a difference I scored 19,833 on Firestrike with a gpu score of 24,500

    Vega NOOB

    Ok so I purchased a Asus Rx Vega Strix oc from Newegg for $269 instead of a Rtx 2060 Mainly because of the 3 free games and it is pretty much equal to a 2060 minus the Ray tracing that we are still waiting for. I will be the first to admit that I am a Nvidia fanboy so this was a very hard decision but I think I made the right choice. I am have some issues adjusting as far as overclocking and temps & and for some reason I can use Msi afterburner without fan control problems. I think My heat issues I suspect are from my case , the maserbox 5 pro is NOT a good case for airflow do not buy !!! any advice would be helpful

    RTX 2060 or Vega 56 ?

    I just checked i was incorrect I have $150 in credit now i am thinking 2070
  14. So I have a $75 credit for Amazon and I need a GPU Should I get a RTX 2060 for $275 minus the $75 Amazon credit or $289/$259 mir Vega 56 Air boost from newegg making it $259 The 2060 comes with 1 of 3 games The vega comes with 3 games
