Right now I have a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti which, as you can imagine, suffers severely with most games so I think now would be a good time to start looking for an upgrade
Other Specs that might be important:
CPU: Intel i5-8400
Motherboard: MSI B360 GAMING PLUS
RAM: Crucial CT8G4DFD824A 16 GB (8GB x 2)
PSU: Cooler Master MasterWatt 550w
How much of that is actually important I don't know.
I've been leaning towards the GeForce RTX 2060 Super / Super Gaming OC but I recently looked into the AMD RX 5700-XT and I'm split.
Any input is much appreciated :)

I have the 2060S so I can give you experiences with that but the only reason I didn’t get the 5700XT was because my favourite game series has PhysX and I missed it when I swapped my 980 for a Vega 56.
Personally unless you want some Nvidia specific features I’d go 5700XT. But I’d also look at upgrading to a 650W PSU if you have any spare money after the upgrade too.

Thank you for your response it really helped me in deciding! And I will definitely look into upgrading my PSU :)

The 5700XT is the value for money option. I could have got one for around the same as a 2060S and it does offer more performance but at the same time the Vega 56 I had ran Batman Arkham Asylum at like 10FPS with PhysX on so...
