Hi.
Im looking into upgrading from this GPU.
But knowing me, im a fan of used hardware(almost everything on this list is bought used)

This is my system today:
Motherboard: MSI H81-I
CPU: i7-4790(non K)
RAM: 16GB 1600mhz Corsair Vengeance Pro
GPU: Sapphire RX580 Nitro+ 8GB
Seasonic Focus+ 550W 80+ GOLD PSU
MSI MAG322CQR 32" 165hz


Im thinking on the Sapphire RX Vega 56 (blower version)
Will this be a good upgrade?
I can get it used here in Norway for 250$
I was thinking on the RX5700 XT, but they are still much more expensive, and almost no one used yet.

Im looking for the possibility to play i.e. Warzone at 1440P with at least stable 60FPS

Also, what about bottlenecks?

The Vega 56 would be a great upgrade and you will not have any bottleneck with your CPU. However, it seems like the vega 56 uses a lot of juice and 550 watts might not be enough.

Thanks for the easy reply :)
Is there another gpu, you would go for, that wouldnt use so much juice?
I'm thinking of doing a build just like this and, in fact, I was also going to use a Vega 56. I thought about this card as I knew that there were meant to be lots of ways to boost its performance such as installing Vega 64 drivers. I then saw the heavy PSU requirement so now I'm thinking about a GTX 1070 (used, of course) as I know that they can go for about £200. I'm not 100% that a 550W PSU would cut it for a 1070 though so maybe try a 1660 ti as this has somewhat similar performance with a lower TDP. The only problem I have with the 1660 ti is the 6GB of VRAM compared to the 8GB that the 1070 has.
