    New Graphics Card Selection - Poor Reliability?


    I'm looking for a new graphics card to give a better frame rate at 2560x1440 pixels than my current Sapphire AMD R9 280X card.

    The choice is probably between a GeForce RTX 2060 Super, GeForce RTX 2070 and Radeon RX 5700 XT. The GeForce RTX 2070 Super is too expensive. When buying new components I always look at the user feedback on Amazon for poor reviews (1 and 2 star reviews). I've surveyed many cards and was surprised to find very poor ratings for most of them - issues were premature failure, over heating and display artefacts. I only found the following cards having a reasonable user feedback rating:

    GeForce RTX 2070
    EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 (08G-P4-2277-KR) - but too expensive at over £550

    GeForce RTX 2060 Super
    Zotac GAMING GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER AMP
    Zotac GAMING GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER AMP Extreme
    EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER XC GAMING
    MSI GEFORCE RTX 2060 SUPER VENTUS OC

    Radeon RX 5700 XT
    No reliable cards in survey

    Please advise:

    • Which graphics card manufacturers offering cards based on the above GPUs stand out as being more reliable?
    • NVidia supply graphics cards direct using their reference design. Are the graphics cards supplied direct from NVidia noted for good reliability?
    • The GeForce cards have ray tracing. Is this a feature really worth having looking ahead say 5 years?

    :)

    graphics card problems

    Hi,

    Your computer makes a noise or beeps from your internal speaker because it failed to detect the graphics card. What we can suggest is for you to try cleaning your graphics card with a pencil eraser. Here are the steps below:

    • Turn your computer off.
    • Pull out your video/graphics card.
    • Rubbed the cold contacts with soft pencil eraser.
    • Connect your video/graphics card back to the computer.
    Kindly note that this is just a temporary fix. If the case still continues, I suggest that you contact your graphics card's manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.

    • Right click on the Graphic driver and select
