So i found the perfect used pc i wanted
R5 3600 / rx 5700xt for a nice price where i live.(dont ask for the price cuz it really depends on the currency/cost of life in diffrent countries)
But the 5700xt is 18 months used and its a (asus radeon) wich is the worst when it comes to cooling , so my questions are :

-Would it perform the same as other versions of 5700xt ? (Non blow cooling system)

-What's the best way to benchmark it and see if its worth buying?

-After 18 months of usage how do u think it would perform? Maybe like an rtx2060? Or less maybe a 1660ti?


Btw all i care abt is fps in games

"Would it perform the same as other versions of 5700xt ? "
If it is functioning properly it should perform the same or close to the same.

I would expect it to perform the same as it performed new.
It should not have any degradation.

this time in use shouldn't affect it's performance unless it was highly overclocked and ran for 24/7.
even then it may only need a new thermal paste application.

i stress my cards pretty heavily for 3-4 years and have never had one deteriorate performance-wise.

the RX 5700 XT was a decent mid-range card.
the RX 6700 XT gave me a slight boost in performance compared to my GTX 1080 Ti. same frame rates with higher settings in-games.
so expect around the same or maybe slightly better than a nice overclocked GTX 1080 Ti.
