Its $659 and the rtx 2080 super is coming and that is going to be $699 but I am not sure if best buy will get it because bb doesn't even have the rtx super cards for the 2060 and 2070.

Just go for the regular 2080. The Super model will not be worth the price increase.
Rtx 2080 super is 14% faster than rtx 2080 https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-rtx-2080-super-benchmark,39988.html
So I think Rtx 2080 super is better because you are paying only 40$ more for 14% performance increase
From a benchmark... and not a good one, at that.
Here's a video with some actual in game results:

It comes out to less than 10% overall.

For $20 difference between the founder editions I might as well get the rtx 2080 super right?
Not necessarily? But this depends on YOU: how much do YOU value $20.

Me? I'd still go 2080 and just... hold on to it? It'll bring me closer to my goal of 'things I want to upgrade list'.
Plus, I don't care for the designs of Nvidia's reference cards - their using a better cooler this time around, but still 'meh', IMO.

exactly $20 is nothing because the rtx super is $700 while the rtx is $680. The rtx gaming x trio that I said before is only $690 so not really much of a difference. See look at prices here. I was thinking bout getting the super ventus but thats not in stock.

Rtx vs super

Between those options... If it were me, I'd still get a 2080.
I already mentioned how I don't like the design of the Nvidia reference, so it would just be between the 2 Msi cards.
I'd get the $690 2080 X Trio - bonus: it has a binned chip - and I'll have 2080 Super performance for $40 less.
WIN.
