Im debating between these two cards.

I know that i should grab some extra money and get the Rx 5600xt but since i upgraded my whole setup last week, i cant afford it atm. My whole system consist of Ryzen R5 3600, B450 Tomahawk and Corsair RGB 8+8gb Ram. The case is a Corsair Spec 04 (Cx 600 and a combination of HDD and SSD).

The Rx 5500xt Pulse seems like the best value card. Call me stupid but what turn me off is the non-RGB logo.


On the other hand, there's the Nitro+ version of this card which looks beautiful and seems to have (slightly) better performance and cooling system. Other features are dual RGB fans and RGB logo. Btw, its $30 more expensive than the Pulse model.

PS: my current GPU is a Sapphire RX 580 4gb Nitro+.
 
I don't see a point in buying the RX 5500XT. It's marginally faster than your RX 580... like a couple of frames in some titles, in others they're matched.

Tell you what... I'd save up and get something better. An RX 5700 (or XT) would be the sweet spot if you want more performance.
Also, while upgrading the GPU it would be nice if you'd swap your CX600... really low quality PSU. I'm assuming it's old too.

Good call @ChumP .

I can get a 5600 instead of the Nitro 5500. The 5700 would be ideal but i haven't enough cash.

PS: The Corsair CX600 served me well since i bought it in 2016 but it is not the best PSU, thats for sure.
