Hello i was wondering what gpu to buy im gonna upgrade my cpu motherboard ram and gpu... i have already decided the cpu mobo and ram. Im considering in buying an 5700xt but have they fixed the drivers issues yet?
The components i will buy for my pc are:
Cpu: ryzen 5 3600 ( i will keep the stock cooler cause i wont oc for now)
Mobo: msi b450 tomahawk max ( out of the box 3000 ready )
Ram: g.skill ripjaws 16gb ddr4-3200mhz (F4-3200C16D-16GVKB)

The components i have and wont change are:
ssd: samsung 850 evo 250gb version
hdd: wd blue 1tb 7200rpm
psu: coolermaster g550m gm series 550w modular 80+ bronze


I was thinking about buying 2060 or 5700xt or even 2060 super depends the brand cause of the price range... some cheaper models have thermal issues etc. (i dont plan on oc'ing maybe later on)
if you are wondering i live in greece
 
PSU - This discussion is always polarizing.
Let's start with the facts about the CM G550M (here's a review) - it's a decent [Channel Well] platform. Single 12V rail capable of 500W, 80+ bronze efficiency, 5 year warranty, and good ripple suppression. Looks like these came out in ~2013. When did you buy yours?

Can you get something better? Absolutely.

Do you NEED something better? You're probably going to be in the range of 300-350W of power consumption with your system. So technically no, your current PSU should do fine.

yeah i saw a video that came out today saying they fixed most of the driver bugs.. but i was wondering what was the best option my budget is around 350 euro
2060 price range starts at 306 euro
2060 super price range starts at 376
5700 xt price range starts at 355
but the cheaper models are kind of noizy and have high temperatures
if you want i can send you the site and you can determine whats the best option or you can tell me 3-5 models from each card and i can tell you the price points if they are VFM or overpriced

i bought it almost 3 years ago (to be precise 8/10/2017)
thank you for your time ill consider the 5700xt gigabyte(3fan) and maybe check out some other gpus of 2060super and non super models depends on the discounts etc but most likely go for the 5700xt if all the bugs are fixed to a point it rarely happens..

that actually is a great deal.. i didn't even check plaisio to be honest because they usually over price things(without the discount as you can see its 569) but thats pretty awesome... i will be able to afford a new gpu after april sadly and i dont know if they will keep that offer still but thanks for showing it to me ill try to snatch that deal if i can.
