Hi guys.i want to test an amd gpu in my pc because my friend wants to buy it but the the guy we are buying from says it blackscreens because it needs drivers (R9 280x)
I have a Ryzen 5 2600 that cannot work without a dedicated Gpu and now i want to know should i pre install the drivers before installing the card or something else ?
Thank you
 


That card should not blackscreen because of lack of drivers. Windows has basic drivers that allow the card to display basic graphics on the screen so that you can go get the drivers.

Oh i see so simply puting the card should show as display adapter.i wasnt sure because i have no amd card experience.why do you think it blackscreens?it turns on and everything
 
the AMD cards are very power hungry I would try the 500
also do a complete wipe of drivers is always good

Download the latest drivers for your GPU place them on your desktop get Display Driver Uninstaller from here

remove everything after restarting it will probably be 640x480 not great instal your AMD/NVIDIA drivers and hopefully should fix your problem
