hi
Which of the following is the best graphics card? (Temperature, longevity, durability, performance, quality, minimum failure, low noise, etc.)

ASUS ROG-STRIX-RTX2060-O6G-GAMING Graphics Card

MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 z 6GB GDRR6

GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 2060 XTREME 6G

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro 6G Graphics Card

Temperature and noise: No real way to know unless someone, typically a reviewer, was able to test all 4 side by side...
Also, you yourself, are your own variable in regards to how you will run the fans. Fans are designed around 100% speed, but most users don't run them like that, even in the middle of a game.
Just like some people have taken several fans and tested them in different scenarios... you're going to have to find a specific video or article by someone who's tested all 4.
What I can share with you is that the Aorus Xtreme has the highest power limit of the presented options, at 240w.
The Asus Strix is right behind that at 238w.
The Gaming OC Pro is 3rd with 215w.
The Gaming Z is last with 200w.
What does this mean? Well, higher power limits = potentially higher boost clocks - POTENTIALLY. We're just talking intervals of 15mhz, so nothing too crazy.
Those higher clocks require more robust cooling solutions.
These cards are temperature sensitive, so the better its cooling and your chassis cooling, the higher clocks that will be sustained.
It's all a balancing act.

Three of the cards have triple fan coolers, while the Gaming Z is a dual fan cooler, but the fans are bigger than what's on the other 3. Bigger fans should move more air while being quieter, but... hard to say unless someone has compared the 4.

Longevity and durability: Going to depend on how much you're going to abuse it. The general consensus is that the card will be obsolete(technology) before it actually 'dies'. Manual overclocking? There's no guarantees with that process, and it's totally possible to ruin a gpu by overdoing it.
If you take care of it and clean it a few times a year, it'll still be useful even when you're ready to change cards again.

Quality and failure: EVERYONE's experience varies with these vendors. Some folks 'swear by' Asus, some have been stabbed in the back by them and never want to touch another of their products again. Same deal with the others.
What will YOUR experience be?
