I've been using an Asus ROG Strix GTX 1660 Ti for a while now. Also have another computer with a MSI GTX 1660 Super Gaming X. They have been adequate for my needs [Office, Photoshop, Illustrator, and occasionally Premiere]. I want to learn how to use After Effects and probably Blender/3DS Max. So was thinking of getting a 2060 Super. Both my boards are Asus so would prefer to get an Asus card. I found two cards for sale here in Manila. Both look alike and both seem to have the same specifications. But they are listed separately so obviously there is something Im missing out. Could anyone please tell me what's the difference between these two cards?

Thank you for your help.

For blender, I would go with an Evga 2060 KO ultra.

I've looked around and EVGA was out of my budget. I didn't want to spend any more than P20000.00. I found an Asus ROG Strix RTX2060S EVO for a little less, brand new. So went with it for the i7-9700k on a Asus Z390E. Will keep looking for the EVGA 2060 KO Ultra and will use it with the i7-10700k on the Asus Z490E. Thank you for the advice and for the link.

Hold off buying anything until prices stabilize. RTX 30 coming has people running scared trying to unload their old video cards for as much money as they can get for them, but the prices will have to drop once the new cards start getting into the hands of customers. You'll end up eating a lot of depreciation if you buy now.

That's great advice. Unfortunately, it will be some time before I can get my hands on a RTX 30...maybe third quarter next year in part due to budget and in part due to other personal projects. Will be selling off my Z390 and building an AMD 3950x or higher rig and may go for a RTX 3070 or if RDNA 2 matches the hype, an AMD card. The Asus 1660 Ti is starting to make a lot of noise to the point of annoying, so needed an immediate replacement. Thank you for the advice. Appreciate it.
