Hi Guys,
So im a bit confused on selecting a graphics card for my new PC since I upgraded from a 4th gen Era.
first of all my current PC is:

MOBO : MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS
RAM : Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3733MHz
CPU : AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Monitor: Samsung S24B370 1080p 60Hz monitor
PSU : Cooler Master Thunder 500W (have to upgrade this too :( )


So im puzzled with the RTX 2060 Super and the RTX 2070 super cards.

For a person who likes to play most AAA titles on ultra preset @1080p, Should I buy the RTX 2060 super now and use it until next gen nvidia cards arrive, sell this and get a better card (because future games may support RTX and upcoming cards will also have more RTX cores)

Or should I buy a RTX 2070 super and sit like a potato and use it for like 5+ years? Or do you guys have any other options?

Note: I dont prefer AMD cards. Im much interested in nVidia technology + realistic gaming experience (Physx, DLSS etc) what are your thoughts?
Note: you may be wondering why I bought a 3600 non-x. (because I have a good CPU cooler and not into overclocking) :)

Personally for 1080p, definitely the 2060 super, you still get 8gb of vram and it performs almost like a 2070.. so there is only 1 option. Just sell it whenever u feel like needing to upgrade. There is no point in waiting 5 years for an upgrade.... ( well, I did with my Gtx 970 :p )

Also, I hope you use a high refresh rate monitor ? Otherwise A 1660 (Ti) would do.

If I was you, I would buy GTX 1080ti and wait for new RTX's Then go all out and get the latest one,
I did this when i had my GTX 1080ti, I was waiting for GTX 1090 or 1100 but RTX Came out so I got the 2080TI Right off the bat.
