I am upgrading from a gtx 1060 6gb to a rtx 2070 super, I don't know which variant / model to get, such as asus strix variant or the gigabyte windforce version.
I am mostly upgrading for more fps on games so im looking for performance mostly, so the card will be used for gaming.
If you could recommend a different variant which isn't mentioned then please do.

Budget £500 - £600

Specs:
Case - NZXT H500
CPU / Processor - I7 6700k
GPU - GTX 1060 6GB
Power supply - cm650x
motherboard - Asrock z270 taichi
CPU cooler - Hyper 212x evo
ram - 2x4 Corsair vengeance LPX 2400 - CMK8GX4M2A2400C14
1x8 Hyper fury - HX424C15FB2/8

Nice upgrade, but your processor is to weak for rtx 2070 super.

I'm mainly going to be playing at 1080p as i play competitive games such as CS:GO and Rainbow six siege
It'd be a decent improvement, especially with those games. The other misinformed poster is probably thinking that because a 9900k would get 300 fps and a 6700k probably something like 250, that the processor is too weak.

It isn't. I run a 2080 with a 4790k @ 4.6Ghz @ 1440p and get between 100 and 130fps in BF5. You'd see an uplift, but it'd be more balanced if you were running at 1440p.

So should i stick with the Gigabyte aorus 2070 super or?
