I'm a first time builder trying to decide on a GPU for my air-cooled NCASE M1 v6.1 build. These two 5700 XT options fit and are currently available:
  • PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT (not Red Dragon/Devil)
  • Gigabyte 5700 XT Gaming OC
What are the pros/cons of each for an NCASE, and which one is the better option for my needs?

My build priorities:
  1. Linux compatibility + easy NCASE installation
  2. Quiet (living room PC hooked up to a 1080p TV)
  3. Flexible build options (e.g., allows for bottom fans to be installed)
