Question 5700 worth the $ ?

So I’m finally building a new rig, it’s been 10 years now I got out of my old one. Can’t decide on the GPU. I’m not sure if I want to spend the extra $100 to get a rx 5700 over a 1660 super. Pros for the 1660s, price and low power but with a rx 5700 I would get more value out of my cpu and higher res.

ryzen 5 3600, msi B450 pro vdh max, 7377 Samsung b-die, are all on the way. Not going to OC the cpu, or ram. If I get a 1660s I’m going to OC the GPU and if I get a rx 5700 I will most likely under clock to lower power draw and temps. I like low power cause it means cooler and quieter.

If I get a 5700 I might have to budget on the monitor. So a good quality 1080p monitor with a 1660s or a budget 1440 monitor with a rx 5700? My budget is around 400-500 for monitor and GPU. I don’t stream and I’m not a content creator. I’m looking to get the most bang for my buck, max game settings with minimum 60 FPS.

Thanks for the input. I guess what I meant with the ram is I don’t plan to push it past it’s rated speed. I like the idea of the GPU staying relevant longer. I’m trying to find a way to explain to my wife why a $360 GPU is the logical choice. She’s a gamer too but only plays the sims so it’s a bit over kill for her.
