Post in this thread if you're using a last gen or older GPU. State what you paid and what you're using it for.

I have 2 GPUs that I use for games and video editing. First is a Gigabyte RX 580 that I got for $160 a year ago. Second is a Nitro + 570 that I got from a miner for $89 a few months back for a secondary PC.

What do you Jow Forumsuys have from the last gen or older?

roughly $250 mid 2016 wasn't gonna wait for aftermarket 480s and the 390 performs the same as them anyway.
Considering grabbing a 5700 when aftermarket coolers are available, just need to figure out if my locked quad core i5 can handle more gpu power

I'm on a gtx 950. It's not a bad little card. It gets the job done most of the time even if it isn't the most recent or the most powerful. It's pretty efficient and very quiet so I'm happy with it.

John Turner

Does that card require a 6 pin? I had a 1050 ti for a while that I loved for the same reason. Quiet and cool, and still got the job done.

ATI Radeon HD 6870 1 GB. I don't care to upgrade, as it does all I require it to. Bought it like 6 years ago for 100.00 usd. Have used it for vidya, mining, and it's opencl capability.

Gavin Martinez

I kinda want a Vega 56 but they don't seem worth the money now the 5700xt is around. Cool card tho, and from what I read they are more powerful for productivity than newer cards.

Both cards that I have are last gen now. The RX 580 is just a backup card for now, though I purchased a Xeon E5-1620 v2 on Ebay earlier and plan to make a build out of that, plus a chink X79 motherboard I've had laying around for ages and the RX 580.

It's working just fine without any problems , well.. except it's 77-80 on full load on some games like mordhau and pubg.

Regular Reference 980 , i think i got it for like 400 or 450?

I use it for Gaymen and recently hardware encoding when i watch stuff through plex. Its not ideal for my 1440p 144hz set up. Im hoping the 5700xt AIB's are decent.

FYI it sounds like a jet engine when underload.

I still use my MSI 390x. Works pretty well for 1080/60, and it runs 3 monitors all the time. It's had a shit ton of use since I bought it in 2015, including a lot of gaming and some crypto mining. Overall been a great card.

Thinking that I may upgrade to 1440/144hz and a new card later this year or early next year. Hoping that the super release means some pricing changes and that I can snag a nice upgrade with money for a monitor left.

Im running a 2080, non super, does that count as last gen?
Paid £740 for an ASUS board that died in warranty, they didn't have any of those in stock to replace it with so they bumped me up to an EVGA that's £780 on their website though I didn't have to pay the difference.
I use it for Netflix and Notepad.

Bought in November 2016 for $240 right before buttcoin destroyed the gpu market. Probably the single best value for dollar spent I've ever had in an electronics purchase.

Before this I had a GTX 460 SE (1gb) and while it was fine, it was not great even when it was contemporary.

Before that was a 7600 GT, loved that card but tech advanced more quickly in the mid to late 00's so it got outdated quickly

NVidia GeForce 8600GTS from 2008.
The computer has AMD A8-5500 bought in 2013.
Can't be arsed to upgrade, the APU has a spare graphics card in case the GeForce dies.
It runs linux and all the programs I need.

The only reasom to upgrade would be to do calculations in Gnu Octave that require considerable time and go near 1 hour on Core2 Duo laptop CPU which translates to 15 minutes on A8-5500, which also gives 4 minutes on Ryzen 7 2700, given the calculation is written to be multithread with MPI.

Same card here, Zotac GTX 950 AMP! Edition. I got it for like $125 a few months after it released on that not-amazon site owned by Walmart that I forget the name of. They gave you some huge discount for your first purchase on a new account. Pretty sure I didn't get a warranty in exchange but it's a Zotac so not like I had much warranty to begin with. I mainly play fighting games so I don't need some amazing GPU. I do need to get something new though since MK11 is a piece of shit to run for this card. Min requirements say 1050... but I can barely get 60fps stable with every single setting on low at 1080p. Even though these cards should be essentially the same.

Other than that I'm happy I bought this card. A 4GB 960 was $230 or something and this card basically matched the stock 2GB 960 performance for $80 less. Honestly considering just upgrading to another last gen (RX 580) and hold out for a few years for prices to not be retarded.
