My GTX970 is dead

Discussion in 'ACC General Discussions' started by andrea.chiovato, Jun 7, 2019.

  1. Hello,
    as the title said my GPU is dead.
    I have a max 200 euros of budget.
    I have no plan to buy a new PC for at least 1/2 years.
    Giving that I use a 1920x1080 60hz monitor;
    I have the asus p7p55d-e as MB
    and I have a 600W PSU (MS-Tech MS-N600-GD)
    and a pretty old i7 CPU
    what would you buy?

    Used Geforce regenerated?

    Thanks for all your suggestions.

    I have a 1070 which you can buy refurbished for around £200. I am very satisfied with it's performance. Also running with an i7 CPU (8700). I'm generally getting a consistent 60+fps at 2560x1440.

    2nd hand gtx 1070.
    Just sold mine for 200€.
    Played AC on wqhd triples almost everything epic and meets ACC recommendation.

    ACC has a strong bias towards NVIDIA regarding FPS - I hoped for my Vega 64 to perform similar to a 1080 but it performs only like a 1070. So a 2nd hand NVIDIA might be good.

    On the other hand, Radeon GPUs have just dropped massively in price due to the upcoming Navi launch.

    You can pick up an RX590, the fastest Polaris GPU with 8 GB, for ~190 € new. You even get The Division 2 and World War Z as a giveaway:


    If you can scrounge just 70 bucks more, you even get a Vega 56:


    Although radeon is handicapped in ACC, the prize makes these offers quite attractive. Both GPUs will play ACC reasonably well on mid settings and 1080p, especially on a FreeSync monitor where you can go down below the refresh rate without stuttering.

    I'd actually prefer this over a 1060, because the 6GB RAM might become an issue in ACC and cause microstutter. ACC can use ~ 5GB of RAM.

    Edit: if you can pick up a 200 € 1070, you'll get way more FPS for sure.

    I see it 3 ways.

    A new GTX1660
    A used GTX1070
    A new RX580

    If it was my money i'd grab a new card.

    After a quick look on YouTube the 1660 seems slightly better, not a lot in it so you have choices

    When you say dead in what way, my 780 died a few ago in my other PC so I done the oven bake trick, and it's still going now..

    What is this sorcery? :)
  10. Thanks very much for all your responce.

    GTX 1070 - what about compatibility with my HW?
    I mean Watt? Bus speed?
  11. Basically, I did a drive session, exit and suddenly the PC has rebooted and then the Monitor did not receive the signal anymore.
    After put my old gpu the signal was back again.
    I opened the GPU housing and I did not notice anything strange.

    What do you mean with "bake trick"? any video?

    EDIT: ok got it, no need to answer.

    This is the intructions I followed and worked like a dream, basically it's a dry joint cure, I looked at it this way, no harm in trying if it's dead it's dead but if it brings it back to life, like mine it gave me time to save more to get a decent setup later..

  14. I read this about the trick. Don't know if it is true:

    No-one should attempt this in a household oven, for various reasons:

    1. Both lead and tin are volatile when heated. Specifically, this means that lead oxide and other dangerous chemicals are emitted when lead is heated.

    http://www.sentryair.com/solder fume.htm

    2. The fluxes used in production of modern electronics are designed to remove oxides very, very efficiently. They are NOT designed to be biocompatible. Small amounts of residue may still be on the board.

    3. Boards may contain parts which will melt at the reflow temperature. These components are generally through-hole and added as a separate step.

    So, basically, once you have completed this operation and (possibly) fixed your video card, BUY A NEW OVEN.

    a 1070 is muy faster than a 1060 and with your monitor resolution 6 gb is not mandatory
  18. Provide some links please, because I can't find any 1070 4G or 1070 8g that costs less than 220 euros

    For the 1660 probably you are right, 20/30 euro more to have 10/20 fps more would be good. Again Palit? Gigabyte? Asus?
    The best price for Gigabyte is 221 euro from here:

    on ebay there are a ton of these 1070 on sell. If you want a new one instead of used than is out of your budget.
