Hi guys!

I want to build a gaming pc, only for gaming with the following specs:

MOBO: Decent B450 motherboard, I think a bios updated Gigabyte B450 AORUS PRO will be more than fine.
RAM: HyperX Predator 16GB 3200Mhz CL16 - kit 2x8
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 - not the X version - not the 3700x - i insist to the 3600, because the prices in my country
GPU: this is the main question for me, i can not decide between RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super, maybe a used RTX 2080
Storage: I already have an 1TB SATA SSD for games, i plan to buy a nvm ssd for os.
Case: It's not an important question for me, but i plan to build this in a Phanteks P400A - non digital version with extra fans.
The display i already have is a 32" 1440p 144hz freesync monitor, with this build i want to use this monitor at it's full potentional.
My main goal here is to build something to run first person shooter games - pubg, rainbow six siege, call of duty-battlefield-battlefront series - around 144fps at 1440p - most important is pubg for me, and play single player games and multiplayer co-op games, rpg-s etc, with 60+ fps. The heaviest game today is RDR2, this is what i see on youtube at least, barely run fix 60fps with any build with maxed out settings.
So the question is, RTX 2070 Super is enough for me? or i should go for the RTX 2080 Super, maybe the cheaper solution is the RTX 2080, but used.
The differencies here from RTX2070S to RTX2080S is around 15-20% max, i know, but when i play something is barely can hold around 50-70fps like RDR2 or 110-150fps like PUBG, this 15-20% is important.
In my country the RTX 2070 Super and used RTX 2080 have around the same price, and the 3700x price is almost the double of the 3600.
I can get the RTX 2080 Super if it is necessary, i don't have a FIX budget, but i don't want to spend more than i have to for this goals.

Thank you for any advice or solutions!

Oh, p.s.: I already have an FSP 750W Gold PSU, so this is also a fixed thing, i don't want to buy a new one.

Both of those games are broken messes and poor examples of measuring your machine's performance.

If you can actually afford one, I'd lean towards the 2080 Super.
 
I've got a 2080 Super paired with a 3700X running 1440p, only had it a couple of weeks. The 2 games I've been playing are Gears 5 and COD MW. Both games with settings near max run about 100-110 fps, can easily get more if I turn down settings but I'd say definitely get the 2080 Super.
