Good bang for your buck

Sapphire 11265-05-20G Radeon PULSE RX 580 8GB GDDR5 DUAL HDMI / DVI-D / DUAL DP OC  Graphic Cards
Sapphire 11265-05-20G Radeon PULSE RX 580 8GB GDDR5 DUAL HDMI / DVI-D / DUAL DP OC Graphic Cards

Pros: Super silent. Sturdy. It looks great. Has quick connect fan, which should be really helpful later on. Very nice price considering the GTX 1060 has similar performance but that will set you back $50+. The backplate and fan config keeps it pretty cool, Idle temp is 30ª on my rig.

Cons: Power hungry, around 300 w on full load.

Overall Review: I dropped one egg because of the drivers, this is on AMD, not Sapphire: * It takes forever to detect my second monitor connected to HDMI (my main is DVI). I have to restart it / unplug it and pray for it to be detected if I don't start the PC with both on, which is a drag because I only turn it on when I use it. The new drivers do not seem to fix this, I'll give it a try, but it might be a deal breaker on the long run. *The mouse lags at times, but it's random, seldom and so far not a big deal. *Windows booting times are extended, but I can live with it. Other thoughts: *My order was shipped on the 3rd day and the rest was pretty fast, can't complain since it was also free. The box arrived in perfect conditions. *Its very disappointing that Newegg won't make valid the current AMD promo with 2 free games just because it's shipped outside the US. I went for it because it was the best price and I really needed to upgrade my old card since the fan had died.
