Title says it all. Ideally looking for a mid-range card but open to any offers. Unfortunately restricted to AMD for Mac compatibility. I haven't purchased off here before but my Reddit is u/chrissantamaria if you'd like to see my r/hardwareswap history.

@chrissantamaria, The only ITX upgrade in Radeon family is RX 5600 XT (for the US). I don't think they're available on the used market yet.

@itsage, hmm, okay. Are there any non-Radeon options worth looking out for? I've previously used an R9 Nano in this enclosure with decent results.

Also, any issues with your 5600 XT? I've heard some reports of pretty poor thermal management.
