I have a month old msi 1070ti gaming, and I was thinking of selling it and getting RTX 2070 from MSI or ASUS. The question - Is it worth the upgrade? The shop where i bought the whole PC will allow me to return 1070ti and pay the rest for rtx 2070. Looking thru benchmarks it is better in every way, I'm just not sure should I do it.

Rest of specs
Ryzen 7 2700x
G.skill ripjaws 3200mhz
MSI B450 Tomahawk
Seasonic focus gold 80+ 650W

Main reason that I would want to upgrade is cause I stream on GPU NVENC encoder, and streaming on a new OBS version that is coming up late January on NVENC on RTX cards will decrease the CPU usage under 1% while maintaining the quality of x264 Encoder on Medium/Slow preset.

Now after knowing all that, is it worth to upgrade to 2070? And if yes should I go for some other brand than MSI?

If i was you i would upgrade as you will be getting some value out of your upgrade. It also depends on how much you have to pay to change to the new GPU.
