I just picked up a new monitor (34" Ultra Wide 1440p 144MHz 1500R Curve Samsung Panel -VA) to replace my 3 monitor setup (24" ASUS 1080p). Now I need a new video card to drive the monitor.

My current rig is:

Intel Core i-7 4770k Processor
32GB DDR3 Memory
Gigabyte Z97MX-Gaming 5 Motherboard
Radeon RX 570 Video Card

This card is going to struggle to push anything more than low to medium graphics on games with this new monitor. Where I'm torn is the cost of new video cards.

If I'm looking hard enough, I can stumble across an open box 5600 for $200 or $230 new. A 5700 for $320 (open box) or $350 new. But at that point... why would I just not drop another $100 for the 6700 at $449?

Ultimately... that makes the 5700 a non player and I'm left choosing between a 5600 at $230 or a 6700 at $450. I'd rather not spend an extra $220 but I feel like the 6700 would probably be the last video card my current build sees.

Then what about the 20x series by nVidia? By paying a touch more I get Ray Tracing which is cool but I'm not paying for a 2080, for what I would pay for a 2070 I may as well snag one of the new AMD cards. A 2060 is going for $320 new... I don't know that Ray Tracing is worth nearly $100.

Better yet... do any of you fellow nerds have an itch to update and want to sell me their 5k/20x series cards?

You can try downloading the latest driver they had for it and see if that helps.

If you're around KC, I have a Radeon 6870 that my friend borrowed and used for a few years. When he returned it some years ago, I never got around doing anything with it. It's from the same era as your 570 and still works. You can have it if you want it.
Damn decent of you to offer.

What type of processor do you have? I'm not sure on something that old but if it has integrated graphics try hooking your monitor straight to your motherboard and see if the issues fixed.

I appreciate the offer. I'll try the driver again, and the motherboard trick and go from there.

Seen MicroCenter had a 3060 Ti in stock in KC, called to confirm they had it. Drove from Columbia, got there and saw a guy buying it as I walked in.





Fuck.

Jeez, man. That is fucking brutal. Did you have to drive back empty-handed or did you at least end up getting something there for yourself?

Got new RAM, motherboard, and an AIO while I was there, so it wasn't wasted. My luck kind of runs that way so I had a plan to buy some other things while there.

Bro I wasn’t kidding, the longer I sit around waiting for the gpu the more shit I tack on. Also got him a monitor, mouse, and mouse pad which he is already using. It must stop.
