I'm building a new PC and I was going to go with a vega 56 at 1440p, but I found that the card that I want is 2.5 slots wide and since I have a card in the third slot that I need it will not work. So that means I need to find either a different vega 56 that is only 2 slots or just get a rx590 that is 2 slots. If I go with the 590 I will get a 24" monitor, but I would go bigger if I can find a suitable vega 56. Or should I just save a for a rx5700?

Micro Center had a Power Color Red Dragon Vega 56 for $300, then for an extra $30 I got a 2 year replacement warranty. So, if my card starts to artifact before the 2 years is up(you know about 1 year and 11 months fro m now), they will give me a Micro Center gift card for $300 to buy a new graphics card with. At that point, I could then add some money to it and get a way better card.
