Hey guys I had a quick question. My friend saw this build on youtube and really liked the parts on it for the price, but the thing is he's kinda skeptical about the graphics card because he prefers Nvidia. Here's the list https://pcpartpicker.com/list/BCmF3t and what do you guys think would be the best choice. Should he buy the Radeon card or go Nvidia instead and if so which card would be worth it with these parts?
 
For a bit less I would go the RTX 2070 Super route as it has more performance straight out of the box versus the 5700 and with DLSS coming on and Ray tracing as just an added bonus...Even without DLSS and Ray tracing it is more powerfull...

Also a Gold rated power supply at 650w will be a bit better and still a bit less than your original build...

Just noticed the 250GB M.2 SSD which just is not enough...For around 15 bucks more you can have a 500GB NVme SSD in the Crucial P1
