From what I've seen the RX 5700 XT outperforms the RTX 2060 Super, but is more noisy, hot and power hungry.

Furthermore, I'm interested in streaming and from what I've seen and read the AMD encoder quality isn't good compared to NVIDIA NVENC. Also the DLSS is useful in some games, but I don't see any utility in ray tracing at the moment.

I guess I'll go for the RTX 2060 Super. Do you share the same opinion? Also do you think there are better options given the price at the moment?

Thank you in advance!

Generally speaking, yes.

but is more noisy, hot and power hungry.
From a noise standpoint, it'll depend on the specific partner model(s) for the 5700/5700XT. The reference/blower cooler is noisy.

Depending on specific settings etc you want to use... It can be beneficial, but both are pretty fit for purpose in terms of encoding.

Depends on the price and your specific location.
At 360EUR (2060S) and 390EUR (5700XT).... If pricing scales, I'd probably look to a 5700 (non-XT) myself.

Where are you located? Do you have any specific websites you'd be buying from?

Perhaps a 1070 is available for less? It's older stock, so there's a possibility....

Motherboard (one of the following)
MSI B450 GAMING PLUS MAX (79,90€)
MSI B450 TOMAHAWK (120€)

GPU
Gigabyte RTX 2060 Super Windforce OC(360€) or Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT (385€)

RAM (one of the following)
1st option: Crucial 2x8GB DDR4 3200MHz Ballistix Sport LT Grey CL16 (78,90€)
2nd option: G.Skill Kit 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200MHz CAS16 (74,89€)
3rd option: G.Skill Kit 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200MHz Aegis CL16 (66,90€)

Storage

PSU (one of the following)

I'm still waiting for some Black Friday promos. The purposes, by order of preference, are to play, stream and edit some content.

All the prices are from Portugal stores, but some European stores are a possibility too.

I would like to know your opinion! Thank you.
