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.

I have a 2560x1440P monitor and I have a 650watt corsair power supply and so far its running fine. Runs all games fine with no glitches . Its a freaking huge card and takes up 3 lanes and it almost didn't fit in my case because my motherboard is an msi h170a and it kinda blocked my usb header for the usb head in front which was annoying so I had to careful insert that back in without bending any pins but other then that its running like a dream. I tried ultra and it looks great so far. Definitely an upgrade from my intel iGPU lol(of course).

Ok just to let u know that you is overkill for a 1440p 60hz monitor see if your monitor can go to 144 if not then that is a rip on ur part

Corsair RM650X?

That's a waste of some $700 - 800 with that monitor displaying only 60hz.
A 2070 Super($500), or 5700XT($400), would've been enough, and have yielded the same performance.

I wouldnt call it a waste but did spent about $1300 on the card. Can handle anything thrown to it and I have a CX650M.
Not really interested in getting new monitor as you can see I still had rocked an intel HD 630 gpu since I built my computer in 2017 lol so not really an intense gamer per say.
