Hi, I am thinking to buy the vega 56 but some poeple say that is very noisy and consume a lot of watts
 
The reference cards having a blower-type cooler are usually noisy when under full load (see pic below). Which VEGA 56 model are you talking about ? A custom AIB model ? The AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 draws power from 2x 8-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 210 W maximum.

Which Power supply do you have ? Also, list full PC specs, including the CPU model.

Unless you need a card right away, it might be worth waiting a bit to see what AMD has to announce about their next generation of graphics card that should be coming this summer. They are expected to release details about their new cards and processors at Computex next week, and likely at E3 a couple weeks later, with the cards probably launching some weeks after that. Chances are that any new card they release with Vega 56-level performance will have lower power draw, and in turn generate less heat, making it easier to cool.

Alternately, you might have a look at Nvidia's latest cards. Something like an RTX 2060 will generally outperform Vega 56 while drawing less power.
