Trying to find the best card to squeeze the most performance from the aging gaming rig. Had a RX 570, but felt the CPU still had more to give. All kinds of games. Most gaming is done offline, tho. (Not a competitive gamer :()
i7-870 OC @ 3.8GHz
Asus P7P55D-E LX
16GB DDR3 1600mhz
 
The cpu did not have more to give, I am very sorry to dissapoint, the rx570 would have experienced a very big boost in fps if the cpu had been upgraded to a new platform

even an upgrade to ivy bridge or haswell would be a big boost in fps, your cpu has seen the sun set my friend.

You could buy a used ivy bridge or haswell relatively cheaply, these would push the rx570.

The 5500xt 4GB is really no better than the rx580 which franly isn't that much better than the 570.

A few years back, this Tom's Hardware Forum Mod seemed to think the GTX 1060 or RX 480 was realistic. Both are greater than the RX 570, and on a par with the RX 5500 XT. ?? That's what I was going by...
