Question Which combination makes more sense/would be less of a bottleneck? i7-9750h w/ GTX 1650 or the i5-9300h w/ GTX 1660ti?

I'm planning on getting a Lenovo Y540 for some gaming/schoolwork. These are the two configurations I narrowed it down to. Which combination would make more sense?

Combination A:
Intel Core i7-9750H (2.60GHz, up to 4.50GHz with Turbo Boost, 6 cores, 12MB Cache)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB

Combination B:
Intel Core i5-9300H (2.40GHz, up to 4.10GHz with Turbo Boost, 4 cores, 8MB Cache)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB

Neither will bottleneck, but the 1660ti is massively more powerful then the 1650, so the performance gains of the more powerful card will be greater then that of the additional 2 cores of the i7.
Ahh, thank you. Kind of a shame though because the 1660ti configuration would take a little under a month to get here, but I guess patience is a virtue :p
