So I'm building my very first pc, and I picked the rtx 2060 for my gpu I chose asus since alot suggested it for me but I've hit a wall trying to find the difference between the asus rog strix rtx 2060 6gb OC (https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-GeForce-Overclocked-Graphics-ROG-STRIX-RTX-2060-O6G/dp/B07MLTTDXS) and the asus rog strix rtx 2060 6gb OC evo gaming(https://www.amazon.com/Axial-tech-Technology-Auto-Extreme-DisplayPort-ROG-STRIX-RTX2060-O6G-EVO-GAMING/dp/B0892TD5XD/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=asus+rog+rtx+2060&qid=1596491037&sr=8-2). The first one is for 650$ and the latter for 360$. The evo one seems sketchy it's almost half the price and they're almost identical and has no reviews. Can anyone validate if this is not a scam and if there is any difference between the two ? Also I looked up on the asus official website and did a comparison between the two they're identical.

Differences:
-more aggressive factory core overclock applied
-heatsink and fans


Link 1 is sold and shipped by a 3rd party seller that appears to have price gouged it to hell... that's 2070 Super - 2080 territory!
Link2 is sold and shipped by Amazon, who didn't gouge and is selling at, or around the retail price.

Prices on all the Turing cards should start rising, if they haven't already; Nvidia shuts down production of the old, as they start on the new.
As for why they rise instead of fall... beats me, but that's what happens. I bought my 1080Ti when it first launched at 699USD. A few months before the 20 series was set to launch, it went up in price(retail).
It wasn't long before it was over 1000USD...

Ohh that makes sense, so is it safe to order it ?
