Hello guys.

I'm planning to upgrade my current GPU (970 g1 gaming).

My options are:

Gigabyte 2070 Super gaming oc for $697
Power color Pulse 5700 XT $558
MSI MECH 5700 XT $581

Besides the price difference, there is also one major thing in my country.

Gigabyte = 3 years warranty
MSI = 3 years warranty
Sapphire = 1 year warranty.

According to reviews the PULSE is better than MECH however they only offer 1 year of warranty here...
what should i do?

I'm planning to play on a 1080p 144hz monitor.

Prices in my country are really SHIT compared to US prices...

I was planning to import one but here they charge 60% as taxes when you import something above $100 lol

EDIT---

There is another option
MSI EVOKE 5700 XT for $560

I read somewhere that MSI is fixing this card problems

Sapphire makes the Pulse. I'd probably choose that over the Mech based on the reviews I've seen.

For 1080p/144Hz I'd say the 2070S is more than you need. In fact, a 5700 (non-XT) or RTX2060 (non-super) is right up on the high end of what you'd need.

Ops srry for my mistake...its sapphire not power color...

Both only offer 1 year of warranty here in my country..

MSI/ASUS/Gigabye 3 years.

So even with only 1 year you recommend the pulse?

I have a Sapphire Pulse 5700XT and I am a bit underwhelmed by it to be honest. It replaced a GTX 1070 and playing The Division 2 or Wildlands I am only getting 35-40 FPS on Ultra (1440p 144Hz). Even at High setting I am only getting 75-80.

Thought it would be more powerful to be fair.

35-40 FPS? oh...thats low .

Well im planning to play on 1080P....Did you check some reviews?usually they test division 2, you can compare your FPS with some reviews.

But what's the rest of your system specs. The GPU alone does not determine gaming performance. That's GPU, CPU, and RAM
Yes, I realise this but in equity, the only different part is the GPU. And relative performance to the old GTX 1070 is diminished.

Same CPU - R7 2700
Same RAM - 16GB Corsair DDR4 3200 RGB Pro
Same MB - MSI B450M Mortar
Same PSU - Corsair TX-M650
Same SSDs - 2 x WD SN500
Same HDD - Toshiba 2TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache
Same Case - InWin 301 mATX

So, in relativity, this GPU underwhelms me with it's performance vs it's predecessor.

Based on what you've said with the warranty, I'd go for the MSi 5700 XT, the 2070 Super is the faster card and supports ray tracing, but it's the first generation of ray tracing so it most likely won't be able to run future games with the feature enabled.
