AMD Radeon R9 270X 2GB Graphics Card Review eTeknix

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)

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?

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?

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

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
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?
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?
