I want to buy sapphire rx 5700 xt, can it work on this pc specs (old motherboard) :
i5 4670k 3.4 GHz
MSI Z87-G45 motherboard
PSU XFX Bronze 550 watt
16 GB (8x2) RAM DDR3 1600MHz

My current GPU is R9 280x and the power supply is working fine for 6 years

Also i saw in some reviews that the rx 5700 xt over heats, and some people recommend not to buy it, is that true?
I will not overclock it anyway

Thanks in advance.

Yes , it should have no issues running on the Z87 board. Fully compatible.
Hi, I have a similar system, i5-4590 on a MOBO Z87-G43. May I ask the following?

Will the PCIE 3.0 of the Z87 board be bottlenecking this GPU?
Will the older gen i5 chip betray this GPU in terms of capabilities?

Thanks!
