    No, my R9 270 is still good enough for me.

    Re: QOTW: Are you considering AMD Radeon RX Vega?

    My Fury X is still serving me well (at 2560*1440 60Hz), so I'll hold off until Navi I suppose. Replacing GPUs every two years just seems silly and wasteful. Not to mention that I just built a custom CPU+GPU water loop a few months ago, and I really don't want to drain and disassemble that any time soon. Then again, the water cooling plus the 1600X I got alongside it drained any semblance of a PC upgrade budget I might have.

    Well judging by this thread AMD should be embracing the miners - at least they will actually buy Vega.

    No. My Asus STRIX GTX970 handles my 1080p gaming & other needs just fine still. Also, whenever I get round to my next upgrade cycle (no time soon) I won't be spending any more money on the next graphics card than I did on my current one.

    Depends on reviews of the rx vega 56.

    Re: QOTW: Are you considering AMD Radeon RX Vega?

    I'm thinking of a thread-ripper hyper converged build where my ZFS-SAN and XEN VM system converge with my workstation.

    VEGA would be spot on depending on performance and a dam site cheaper than a Quadro. PCI Pass through that's the ticket.... GTX is a no go here.

    As for power consumption, for me I'm hoping to go from three systems; One SAN/ZFS/SCST + XEN system, one VMware 6.x and a Windows PC; to a single system... Vega still should save power.

    Time will tell if a 256GB ram system can be done with a good RAM frequency. It may end up being two new systems.

    Re: QOTW: Are you considering AMD Radeon RX Vega?

    No.

    Why would I want to spend £500-£550 on a card that will be completely outclassed by Nvidia's Volta range only 6mths or so after I'd actually be able to buy a Vega AIB card in (Sep/Oct)?

    Vega = too late and for what they are in late 2017, the 56 and 64 are a $100 overpriced.

    Re: QOTW: Are you considering AMD Radeon RX Vega?

    If the recent leaks about the RX Vega 56 prove correct, then yes, but only if there's a third party version with a decent cooler at under £400. Wife already have me her full blessing (where we discuss large purchases together).

    My main concern is that, if I wait, miners will skyrocket prices 50-100%, especially if it does prove to be a mining beast. I honestly wish that retailers were forced to limit sales to one per customer to help mitigate the risk of miners buying all the stock.

    I still believe that even the RX Vega 56 is overpriced and wish they'd drop the official price $50-100, but if wishes were horses, beggars would ride. I have to accept it's going to launch overpriced and get more expensive from there.

    I do feel RTG should also make cheaper RX Vega 48 and 40 models, but I'm guessing that volumes aren't so great that they have enough chips for this, sadly.

    Re: QOTW: Are you considering AMD Radeon RX Vega?

    I've just upgraded the rest of my system to Ryzen and have a FreeSync monitor, so I'm kind of inclined to buy one. Currently on a R9 390 and even a 580 offers little improvement over it. Not enough to warrant the price. But the prices seem a little steep.

    I wouldn't be too afraid of pairing Nvidia with FreeSync, since any GPU can still run the monitor at 144Hz and I haven't found FreeSync to be a huge deal personally.

    Not really. I got Radeon 380 at the start of 2016. Game I play the most? Faster Than Light.

    Not sure if its True but gibbo over at overclockers says these will average between 70-100mhs for etherium mining or about 2 / 3 times a 480 will depend on the power draw but would imagine if its true the miners will eat these up.
