I am upgrading from a gtx 1060 6gb to a rtx 2070 super, I don't know which model / edition of the 2070 super to go with, some 2070 Supers i've been considering consist of

Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 2070 Super

ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Advanced Edition

MSI NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X TRIO

I am mostly upgrading for more fps on games so im looking for performance mostly.

for aftermarket high end variants of GPUs you can pretty much choose anything and they would perform around the same, in my opinion it all comes down to if you like how they look and if it fits your case or not.
personally id go for MSI GPUs.


and yea id also say the CPU might hold you back a bit.

Having read this review I'd be tempted to try a KFA2 card. It runs very cool and quiet and is very good value.

I would agree with concerns regarding the CPU but it wont be horrible, assuming you would upgrade your cpu soon too then getting the 2070 super is also fine rather than spending on a mid-ground type of upgrade and buying a higher end gpu like the RTX 2070 super.

but the experience wont be horrible its a good type of bottleneck in this case.
