GPU troubles

I upgraded my PC in april. I got a new GPU, CPU, MOBO and RAM. After upgrading i have been experiencing weird crashes everytime my GPU is under a certain load the crashes consist of my monitor losing signal and the fans in my PC ramping up. Today i took out my new GPU and reinstalled the old one and it seems to be running better than the new one in most scenarios. Is there anything i should try to fix the new one? I have checked and the new card is not corroded nor rusted. FYI the new GPU is a used GPU (it was used for bitcoin mining). Any help is greatly appreciated.
Old GPU : Radeon R9 270X New GPU : Radeon RX 580 (4GB)

When I went to PC I didn't see any point buying any more consoles I just didn't have the time to justify the costs anymore I already had a PC and at the time I was mining bitcoin in a big way so had plenty of graphics cards to use after the end of their useful life when ASIC miners started hitting the market so put a couple in my PC and joined steam and later upgraded to an R9 270x and then the RX480 also have a GTX1050 in my laptop although that's barely used now since I got a Chromebook

How necessary would it be for me to upgrade my GPU?

I'll preface this by stating that, while I did buy all the parts for me previous two PCs, I didn't put them together and I mostly just bought the parts that sounded good at the time. I play Final Fantasy XIV the most currently, so I'm looking to upgrade my PC a little so that it can run bettesmoother.
Here is my current build:
CPU: AMD FX-4300 Vishera Quad-Core 3.8 GHz
Motherboard: MSI Gaming 970 Gaming AM3+/AM3 AMD 970
Memory: G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
GPU: MSI Radeon R9 270X GAMING 4GB 256-bit GDDR5
The people that I play with have said that my primary bottleneck is probably my CPU, so I was thinking of upgrading that first, but then it started to snowball from there. The CPU I want to upgrade to is incompatible with my motherboard, so I'd need to upgrade the motherboard as well. But my current memory would be incompatible with that motherboard, so I'd need to upgrade that as well.
Here's what I'm looking at for upgrades:
CPU: AMD RYZEN 5 1500X Quad-Core 3.5 GHz
Motherboard: ASRock AB350 Pro4 AM4 AMD Promontory B350
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4
GPU: ????
Question is... would I need to upgrade my GPU right now? I understand that my current card is over four years old now, but with the GPU market currently as jacked up as it is due to bitcoin miners, it's hard to find one that's affordable. I'd like to get a more current AMD RX GPU, but most of those are going to double the price of what it would be for the CPU, Mobo and Memory. So, would it be possible for me to just... hold off on buying a new GPU until the market stabilizes? Or should I just bite the bullet and maybe buy an older model RX that's more affordable?

PC from 2015 upgrade question - 1150/i5-4460/r9 270x

Hello there!

Bitcoin craze delayed my upgrade a bit, but it's high time I do it. My current rig works flawlessly with Witcher 3 for example, but new titles (even Deus Ex: Mankind Divided) stutter, BAD. Should I change my CPU (still using 1150)? GPU? Both? Add next 8gigs of RAM?

Made $1 Million mining. Want to Cash out. worried about being unemployed

Basically back in early 2016, I bought some second hand Radeon 7970s and r9 280x and been mining ETH since it pretty much launched. Back then you basically made like 1 ETH per GPU per day. Back then a 280x mined at like 27MH/s since the DAG was very small. Even my R9 270X mined at like 20MH/s.
I kept all this ETH, along with the free ETC, sold all of my ETH/ETC when it peaked at $400 last Summer and went all in BTC. BTC went 5x since that time. Also got the free bitcoin forks.
I kept cashing out a small amount with bitcoin ATMs and basically quit my job since it wasn't worth the hassle.
Now I want to buy a house but I am worried about sending $1,000,000 to an exchange like Gemini/Coinbase/Kraken/Bitstamp and have them freeze this BTC.
I am worried they will ask for employment papers and I've been unemployed since 2016.
All this money was made legally. However since I mined to an exchange instead of my personal ETH wallet, I might not be able to provide a signed message proving I am the one who mined those coins. Since all the coins were mined directly to my Poloniex account. I do have receipts for some RX 470s that I bought last year and wondering if its sufficent. Do I need to take photos of my mining rigs and show it to my exchange as proof?
I know I can buy USDT tether but I am worried that its not really backed by anything. I also don't know if any of the Bitcoin Future Options will be sufficient since they might carry crazy premiums for the puts.
Wondering if people had issues withdrawing large amounts.

I could use some help/suggestions finding upgrades for my current rig (MOBO, GPU, and CPU)

I build my desktop back in 2012 and it's got a fair amount of hours on it at this point. I'm not having "performance issues" exactly, but I am noticing a few slow down points that seem abnormal. For example if I've got a torrent or steam download running and say 7 chrome tabs response time begins to diminish.
I've done a fair amount of troubleshooting to see if I can clean things up (defrag, disk clean up, virus scans, reformat drives, re-image primary drive which is SSD, etc.) and i'm still having some issues. So I'm looking to bite the bullet so to speak and upgrade...thought without breaking the back.
I don't have a hard price limit, but I'm not looking to spend $1500 to upgrade.
Components I'm looking to upgrade
The Mobo and CPu were bought knew in 2012, the Radeon R9's I boght used from a friend 2-3 years ago. He only used them for bitcoin mining and had less than 100 hours on them.....I know this is my biggest limitation so this is number #1 on my upgrade list.
Other components in Rig
I've looked at /buildapcsales for deals, but have had a hard time deciding on specific parts. Any suggestions or assistance is greatly appreciated.

Gave my fiancee the gift of Doge!

My fiancee is the reason I'm on the doge boards-he saw Doge while reading about mining bitcoin and has now become obsessed. It's the topic of every conversation in our household...so I gave him the gift of doge for Valentine's day!
He is now set up with 2 PowerColor Radeon R9 270X Devil Graphics Cards and a Corsair 760watt Platinum Power Supply.

I will use it for gaming and twitch streaming (mostly mobas and indie games, medium-high setting AAAs). Photoshop / video editing / music production stuff at hobby level. Few engineering programs like Solidworks, Matlab and light coding. Also I really want to run rainmeter full time.
Since this will be my first build I didnt want to go all-in. After I learn and experience the basics of building a PC, I really want to go crazy though and spent a few grands on latest tech and custom-loops. So I set a budget around $800 exluding peripherals, but I want to save as much as I can so I can spent the extra money on better screen, musical equipment etc. Also I am from Turkey and will order most parts from Amazon, so int. shipping prices will effect the budget too.
Thanks in advance

Is GPU Mining Worth It?

My friends and I are thinking of building a mining rig consisting of two GIGABYTE Radeon r9 270x in crossfire with 4gb ram each card.
two main questions:
1) would it be worth it at all; would it turn a reasonable profit.
2) Does that Cards' ram matter?

[Discussion] How does TDP translate to Heat, Power Consumption, & Noise?

I built a system a few years back that used Intel's HD3000 integrated graphics. This was back near the peak of the Bitcoin fervor, and the best bang-for-buck cards were in such high demand that you had to get very lucky or pay a 25% premium to a reseller. I was counting on graphics card technology to advance and the Bitcoin market to have a correction, so I went with integrated graphics and left myself some room in the case and some 200W of overhead on my PSU.
Now I'm looking at the Radeon R9 family (specifically the 270X) and I'm stunned at the high TDP numbers. 150W seems like a lot of heat, noise, and power draw. I understand power = heat (and watts are a unit of either) but I'm having a little conceptual trouble wrapping my head around it. So, a few questions:
It's been a while since I've had a discrete GPU in my computer so I guess I need to understand what's "normal" now.

Any reason to go full ATX with this build? New to this.

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Wanted to learn how to build a PC, was given a R9 270X graphics card by someone tearing down their bitcoin rig. Thought I'd build a decent gaming PC around that part. I'm definitely not at the cutting edge of PC gaming, but I'd like to play games like Skyrim with decent performance.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings)
Best answer I can give: 1080p resolution, consistent 30+ FPS with high/medium graphics settings. Whatever I can get from this graphics card.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
Including what I would have paid for the graphics card, something like $600, more like $500 without it.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
'Murica
Post a draft of your potential build here (specific parts please). Consider formatting your parts list. Don't ask to be spoonfed a build (read the rules!).

Provide any additional details you wish below.
Main questions: 1. Is there any reason I should be going full ATX with the mobo and case? 2. Is the PSU overpowered for what I'm asking it to do? 3. Are there any obvious incongruities in this build?
As I said, I'm very new to this, so any feedback is welcome.
Thanks Reddit!

Any risks with second-hand GPUs formerly used for bitcoin mining?

Hello everyone,
I'm considering upgrading my GPU to an AMD Radeon R9. With my budget it can be either a 4GB 270X or a 3GB 280.
However, I have seen some 3GB 280X cards for 30% less than the ones above. The problem is that they have been used for over an year for bitcoin mining rigs. Technically they'd still be in warranty (have to check how that warranty transfers in resale), but I'm concerned that the stress from bitcoin mining might not make them worth the savings.
What do you guys think?

Im kind of new to all this stuff, few questions for you guys

Ok so i have a Radeon R9 270x GPU and I plan on GPU mining. Im kinda just starting out of nowhere so I don't have much background in any of this stuff. All i really know is I need a cgminer, a wallet, a pool, and a worker(miner). I'm just not sure about a few things:
-How will medium/high intensity mining affect my graphics card?
--What is an average intensity setting using the miner?(between 8-20)
---What will happen to my GPU if I go too high?
-If anyone else out there has a Radeon R9 270x, what settings do you use in your miner?(intensity, temp, all the good stuff)
-How do mining pools work?
--Are some more or less profitable than others?
-Does it take more power to mine currency than it does to play games?
--How much is the average electricity cost?(500watt i think)
---If I want to add a Radeon R9 280x GPU to my computer would I need a higher wattage?
-Would it be better to change what I mine everyday to match the most profitable currency of said day or to mine one type of coin and wait for the price to go up?
--If I mine one specific coin should I mine an unpopular one and wait for it to go up or a slightly popular one or......any personal favorites you might want to share?
---I've only tried mining once with cgminer once, but if I do end up switching currencies everyday can cgminer mine most/all of them?
----How do i get actual money out of each different coin, do I have to convert them all to bitcoins, should I trade them, and whats the best option?
-How does block difficulty come into play and how does it change between coins, what else does it effect. Etc.?
[I know this is a lot of questions, but all opinions and answers are much appreciated] [Please comment if you would like me to number the questions] [I might edit in more questions, will mark those seperately]

Would my setup be good enough?

I don't want to make so many dogecoins a day that I could live off of them, just a few every here and there. I am running a custom built computer and would like to do gpu mining, which I've tried but couldn't do because I'm not the smartest cookie with this mining stuff. I have a radeon r9 270x gpu and I am running 3 monitors. If I were to configure and start mining while I am either at school or work would my computer be capable? I am also running a 650 watt gold power supply. Would it also be possible to mine while I am doing small tasks on my computer, like watching videos or facebooking?
Edit - Seeing as I'm in school, I'm quite young (highschool). I was working 2 jobs and took 3 paychecks for this computer, even with boxing day sales (Canadian). If I wanted to/needed to get some additional setups for mining bitcoins, litecoins, dogecoins etc.. (mainly doge) what is a more affordable but fast gpu? (Thinking about $175-$250 or $300 range) I work at mcdonalds until I get my other job back, since I was working seasonal there. I work for 13 hours a week so that's roughly $245 per paycheck.
