    If any of the AIB's charge over £400 they're pretty much DOA. Just spend another £50 and get a 2070S with RT & DLSS. No brainer really as the 5700 has zero new features to justify the cost. Plus if it doesn't have 0db then that's just a joke. Oh and finally not to mention the appalling drivers from AMD ATM and I'm a Vega 64 owner.

    Awesome. A "mid range" graphics card that costs more than a top end games console. Also more expensive than a top end GFX card from the early noughites. I'll stick with my "Actual mid range" RX 580 thanks.

    What problems have you had?? As the household tech support I've had a total lack of "Dad! Dad! It's broken Dad!" style conversations about GPUs.

    Make that closer to £100 extra. Might as well spend another £100 and get the next card up, then the next and the next.

    I've run AMD for years, and had much better luck since the Adrenaline edition than I ever did on Nvidia. Neither are perfect.

    And a feature used in 2 games is hardly justifying the cost.
