A 2070 non-SUPER may also be worth considering, if it is priced right. The 2060 SUPER is just a slightly cut down 2070, after all. A 2070 should be around 5% faster, but looking at current prices online, at least in the US, a number of models are currently available for about the same price...

2060 SUPER: https://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/#c=446&sort=price

2070: https://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/#c=425&sort=price

At around $400, if a 2070 were priced less than $20 over a comparable 2060 SUPER, it would likely be the slightly better value from a price to performance standpoint.

A 2070 SUPER should be more than 10% faster than a 2070, but since they currently cost around 25% more than what you could get a 2060 SUPER or some models of 2070 for, they are arguably not quite as good of a value unless you feel that bit of extra performance is necessary. If you are gaming at a somewhat lower resolution like 1080p, then it's questionable whether you would notice that additional performance.
