I'm an AMD fanboy and I've seen great things about this card. I just don't know if it is worth at this point because of the market. If you have suggestions of places that will not price gauge the cards... I'm all ears.

Yeah they are great cards, but may be hard to find at a decent price as you mentioned. Also, where are you at? Sometimes good local deals are possible.

To put it into perspective, I've had someone offer me the $780 CAD that I was asking for my Sapphire 5700XT within minutes of posting my ad (brand really matters with these cards), but I think I'll keep it even though I could make a tidy profit on my USED card ($230 more than I paid for it new) because the mining is so lucrative ATM. It's also nice to have a decent spare card in case you have another one die (I have two other desktops in the house) as you'll likely not be able to find a replacement.

I got the 5700 at an incredible price which is a good thing cause I don't feel its worth it at the regular price.

I suppose it is now that they have most (but not all) the bugs worked out of the drivers. I had the problems where things froze up or the screen went blank for unknown reasons. I have a freesync monitor but quickly disabled it as it seemed to make the problems worst. It happened to me all the time whether I was playing an old game like Civ 4 or something new like The Division 2.

The amount of time it took to fix things left me a bit bitter, like a kid who gets a really cool toy for Christmas but then isn't allowed to actually play with it. When he's finally allowed to play with it he doesn't because he's kinda moved on from it.

I waffled on buying an AMD card (I had a 1070) for this very reason. I ended up buying my 5700XT in November 2020, and I haven't had a single issue with it. I have a 1440p Freesync monitor, and I also run an 11.6" monitor for my Cougar MFDs in DCS. $380 USD at that time was a good price seeing what prices are doing now! It actually seems like AMD cards get faster over time too, judging by the recent benchmarks on Hardware Unboxed.

There were certainly a fair number of driver-related issues with Navi when it first launched and just the new architecture alone has given AMD a lot of room for improvement. Hopefully it keeps getting a lot of support and doesn't get dumped to allow more focus on RDNA2.
