This is the first time I’ve built a PC but I’ve a video of JayzTwoCents and he says that the 2080 Founders Edition is slightly bottlenecked it held back by the 2700x. I also plan on overclocking the 2700x which will hopefully alleviate that bottleneck but, say if I were to get the 2080 Strix O8G or A8G will there be a bottleneck since the Strix is more powerful than the FE

Well from what i know, the 2080 RTX is pretty power hungry card, and it needs a beefy CPU to handle all that power, i dont know which ryzen is that exactly but if its 7 i guess it should be fine? or an i9 9900k or something.
plus a beefy power supply.

Every system has a bottleneck and unless it's severe there isn't much to worry about!
If cpu/gpu are bottlenecking is highly dependent on the used resolution.
In your case there will be a cpu bottleneck on fhd. But qhd or 4k you should be gpu bottlenecked.

I plan on getting a 144hz or even a 240hz monitor but I hear that 1080p could also bottleneck it so I’m not sure. And I already have the CPU which is the Ryzen 7 2700x and I just need the ram and gpu. I have a RM850x already too

It probably isn't such a high bottleneck, at 1440p or 4K, you'll be fine. Unless the bottleneck is severe it doesn't really matter. If you going the 144hz route, go for a 1440p panel. You probably won't even notice the bottleneck, but for the most bang-for-your-buck, go for a 2070/2070 Ti considering its more than enough for every title to be maxed out on 1080p or 1440p.
