My Maximus has been going strong for 10 years. I upgraded my GPU to a R9 390 in 2015 to handle a new 4K monitor and to cut a long story short the 390 stopped working last week. I’m thinking of getting a rx 5600 xt as a replacement but would the 5600 be wasted on such an old mobo?

Cool, thanks. I can’t really be bothered to fit a new mobo. It will be nice to get an upgrade on the GPU so the R9 failing is not a complete loss.

Yeah definitely. I’m happy with 5 years of trouble free gaming and the upgrade will be nice. It was bad timing tho just before a long weekend in lockdown! I’ve just ordered the Sapphire :)

Quick update. The 5600xt arrived yesterday and wow it’s a huge improvement! The 390 was struggling with Total Warhammer on medium settings with FPS in the mid 30s. I just benchmarked the 5600 on ultra settings Averaging FPS in the 40s. Very happy.
