Should be a decent card, even at 1440p.  Giving that it holds up well.  Shame it's not the Ti version.  And considering what that card was selling for a year ago, you got it for a fair price.

I had just picked up a 6750 XT brand new, in the box, with a 2-year in store warrantee for $380 USD.


Here is the link.

I posted an image of it in the new system.

 I thought for some reason you said you had 6900xt and were all liquid cooled with hard lines.or did you change your setup without an update.






 Actually, the cards are close in performance, most used 3070 I've seen listed were in about the $500 cnd or up range around here. he's what I'd of paid in USD $293.92
 Your card is 500 cnd (before taxes) at newegg over here my card cheapest ads an Ebay are in the 500 cdn range. I almost never see higher end AMD card on kijiji, when they are on they always seemed overpriced.

You weren't mistaken.  My gaming rig still has the PowerColor Liquid Devil RX 6900 XT.  I think where you got lost is that the new server PC I just built has the ASRock Challenger Pro RX 6750 XT.  I posted that in the 7D2D server thread.  I don't know if you saw that yet.

 Would the server actually require a card of that level for hosting games? And yeah, I didn't catch that that was for the server yesterday.

The short answer is, not really.  A lot of dedicated game servers can and do use the some of the graphic cards resources for miscellaneous tasks.  But for the most part, it will go largely unused.  Now the core i7 13700K does have a somewhat respectable iGPU, and probably could handle the job if the system was not used for much else.  But I do intend to use this system on occasion and I didn't want the iGPU to be a limiting factor.  On the plus side, I could use that card as a backup if my main one goes down for some reason.

At the time, it was a good deal.  MSRP for this card was around $550 when it launched.  Good luck finding one at that price.  But finding this card brand new and still sealed in the retail box, for nearly $170 below MRSP, It was a deal I couldn't refuse.  So yeah.  Why the hell not?
