Hello! As in the title, I am in need of recommendation.
Currently i am using gtx 1060 3gb, which is my first graphic card. It is starting to make rattling noise when the fan runs at 70-90% and i want to upgrade to something better.
I am currently looking at Gigabyte VEGA 64 8G for $299 (New) but i had never owned an AMD GPU before. On the Nvidia side, the cheapest RTX 2060 from a brand i never head before is
WinFast RTX 2060 CLASSIC 6G (blower fan) at $329 while the SUPER cost $415. While other reputable brands like ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, etc cost like $415-$500 for the 2060 and $500-$600ish .
So here the question, Should i go for the VEGA 64? and is that model good?
Spec:
ryzen 2600
16GB ram
gtx 1060 3GB
monitor 1080p 60hz (will get a 1440p on the next sale if the discount is good enough)
Thanks!

Performance between the 2060 and Vega 64 is pretty close. https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2512?vs=2515
The better buy would be the RX 5700 which is on average 10% faster than the 2060, gets close to 2060 Super performance, for the same price as the 2060. https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2523?vs=2515 https://www.newegg.com/msi-radeon-rx-5700-rx-5700-evoke-oc/p/N82E16814137467?Item=N82E16814137467&nm_mc=AFC-RAN-COM&cm_mmc=AFC-RAN-COM&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_source=afc-PCPartPicker&AFFID=2558510&AFFNAME=PCPartPicker&ACRID=1&ASID=https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pk6qqs/msi-radeon-rx-5700-8-gb-evoke-oc-video-card-radeon-rx-5700-evoke-oc&ranMID=44583&ranEAID=2558510&ranSiteID=8BacdVP0GFs-RB.8r_KDqi4zVBDO3PMw0A
