Hi, i can't decide between these two GPUs, I'm building a nearly 2000USD video editing pc with 3900x, but I don't really want to play only with maxed out GTA V and GTA VI in the future, also I want futureproof card. The Strix is 430USD the Gigabyte is 460-480. Or any other suggestions? I'd also consider a RX 5700 XT but in Premiere Pro it isn't ass powerful as the nvidia ones. I'm already a little overbudget with these and don't have SSDs yet

You're comparing a 2060 with a 2060 Super?
+7% (approx) for a 2060Super over a 2060 for it's improved performance & additional 2GB of VRAM is a no brainer, regardless of the specific models in question.

What kind of specs are you looking at so far? And where are you located? (suspect not the US?).

Just to be 100% clear, you're considering a 2060 Strix (NON-Super, 6GB VRAM) vs a 2060 SUPER (8GB VRAM)?

If that's the case, yes, absolutely. The 2060 Super, even a budget-orientated model is more than ~7%/$30 "better" than a top-tier 2060 (Non-Super).

Yes because the Strix ones are the most powerful 2060s.
Huh... is that why Asus gpus are so popular?

But no, it's actually number 2 of the 2060s: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/?architecture=NVIDIA&manufacturer=&model=RTX+2060&interface=&memType=&memSize=&since=
Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2060 6 GB is stronger than it.

Even among the 2060 Supers, Gigabyte beats it again: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/212853/gigabyte-rtx2060super-8192-190707
Asus 2060 Super Strix OC: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/218244/218244

But those higher power limits come with a tradeoff: higher power consumption, thus higher temps, meaning you will have to run more aggressive fan curves with the stronger card.
The gpus are temperature sensitive, so I hope a little noise doesn't bother you.
