    Love this Aorus design. Just wanted a full backplate. It would be even better.

    This generation is like dark energy and dark matter we can not see em or touch em in any store but we know they exist cause we observe the results on review sites :p

    Giga's? I'd avoid any - video cards and mobos especially.

    Gigabyte's great for their mobos, I love my X570 Aorus Xtreme, but their GPU's are 'meh' at best. I'd had tw, read it....TWO, Gigabyte RX Vega64 Gaming OC die on me. One's totally dead, the other's good for surfing web, the moment I try to start any and all games on it....I get kicked back to desktop.

    Meanwhile, the PowerColor RX Vega64 Red Devil I'd gotten, RMA'ed the original card due to it being a dud and dying rather quickly, got a new replacement card that is still doing a righteous job in my 2nd rig.

    So no, no Gigabyte GPU's for me anymore. For AMD, I'd rather stick with AMD exclusive AIB partners like PowerColor, XFX and Sapphire.

    last time I owned a gb card was gtx 980 windforce.mediocre overclocker (but that's silicon) very decent cooler but hell of a lot coilwhine.replaced with 980ti msi gaming soon after.
    I would take a chance this time,their gaming pro cards are good enough already and this one looks fantastic.

    their x570/b550 and z490 mobos are among the best in the upper mid range with the aorus elite/pro series

    people who say things like I'd avoid XYZ boards and buy ZYX instead are usually the ones who cry about getting burned buying turds.
    boards and cards are supposed to be looked on case by case basis.
    only manufacturer I could buy blindly is sapphire.

    Well, just like the RTX3060, the RX6700 is overpriced for what you get (MSRP prices) especially at the non-MSRP crazy, bonkers, whacko prices we have now.

    It's so much "fun" these days looking at vaporware...guess nVidia and AMD both are convinced that if they give us the imaginary GPUs that we want it'll be enough. Even the scalpers are playing the imaginary games--advertising GPUs they don't have for 2x-5x MSRP, which they promise to ship you in 2-3 weeks after receiving your money, of course, assuming they can find the one you ordered, that is, while imagining people actually paying those extortionate prices.

    Next we'll hear of a new TV show: "Cold Case Files 2021: Where Did All the GPUs go?"--featuring clips of JHH and Lisa Su publicly announcing official global GPU availability dates that never came to fruition, etc. A real barrel of monkeys, this is.
