Hello,

I'm building my first pc and am having trouble deciding on whether to buy an Asus Rog Strix 2070 OC for $470 ($440 after rebate) from Microcenter or an Asus Rog Strix 2070 Super Advanced OC for $585 from newegg. I know buying the Super would be about a 10% increase in performance/fps but not sure if it's worth the extra $145. I bought a 32 in LG 1440p 144hz refresh rate monitor and am pairing it with an MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge AC mobo, i7-9700k, and 16g GSkill Trident Ram. Should I save $144 and upgrade in 2 years, or spend more and upgrade in maybe 2-3 years? Thanks for the help!

Yeah I see your point. I think the 2070 OC will be able to handle anything I throw at it at 60fps at least. Will still look nice with freesync on my 144hz monitor. I'll just keep this one and upgrade in a couple of years if performance goes down.
