I'm looking to upgrade to an RTX 2060 from my GTX 780, but I don't know if I should buy the Asus Geforce RTX 2060 Dual OC or the MSI Geforce RTX 2060 Gaming Z. Both these cards cost the exact same where I'm from(Sweden) and I don't know that much about graphics cards when it comes to which to buy based on specs.

So which one would you recommend?

Edit: Looks are not a deciding factor for me. My chassis does not have any glass panels so I won't ever see the card after installation.

The asus lacks rgb but seems to have a very beefy cooler. The msi has rgb and looks better. It should. Also have a decent cooler.
Both gpus will work well and perform well but the msi has more appealing looks.

Both are good manufacturers, but the MSI one has a slightly higher boost clock, so you may see a very small difference in framerate, if they're the same price, probably get the one that looks the best.

The MSI is a higher end card, so its going to have better everything. Memory , Mosfets, Caps, even GPU die. Id get the MSI. The ASUS Dual is one of ASUS' lowest end cards.
