I really don't plan to tweak it, but I hear stuff about needing to undervolt Vega cards to get them up to snuff. Kind of off putting, but figured I'd ask. Between Sapphire RX580 PULSE or Power Color Red Dragon Vega 56, if I don't really plan to mess with them, which one should I go for?

I have a 1440p/144hz monitor, so whatever would be better on the average for that(mostly aiming for 144hz in comp online games like Overwtach/Destiny 2 at times/CSGO(Granted I think both of these are way, way overkill for that one). and 1440p in other stuff I play. Like Monster Hunter/Dark Souls 3/Assassin's Creed Odyssey lately and FFXV once in a while.

RX Vega 56, faster than the GTX 1070, almost the same as the GTX 1070 Ti. For Freesync and that resolution, I would rather buy RX Vega 64.

It's what I wanted, but not in the budget at the moment(the Vega 64). Plus with new GPU's likely coming out next year I was kinda looking to limit the cost while getting a performance bump.

Plus the red dragon Vega 56 is only 399ish right now and I'll be getting it for ~350.

The benefit is that RX Vega 56 is the next generation 1080p 60 FPS card so it will have a decent re-selling value in the future market.

Go for it.

Yes you have to undervolt the Vega 56 to get its full potential, but its still a good card at stock settings.
