I've finally started to purchase some parts for my first build and I'm stuck on the GPU but want to make a choice by Black Friday.
Originally I was thinking 2060 Super but a lot of people are saying the 5700 XT is much closer to a 2070 super in performance but videos I've seen on YouTube which are benchmarking are typically taking avg. FPS of slightly older titles. By and large the Nvidia cards seem to have better lows, cooler temps and seem a little more predictable.
But I've just seen an Asus 5700 XT for £349 on Amazon and an MSI Armor 2060 Super OC for the same price.
Anybody have any real experience or opinion on things like 1440p vs 1080p performance on high-ultra settings, how future proofed each is, driver support, ease of setup. I'm fairly novice so overclocking and deep driver and BIOS settings are a bit beyond me right now.
