Should I buy an Rtx 2070 Super or a 5700 xt?
What I think, is that Amd cards are not well optimized for VR, and I should go for Nvidia.
But Im not sure if the Price difference is worth the buy.

Buy the RTX 2070.

AMD RX 5700XT has ugly design and poor cooling system.

RTX 2070 TDP: 175 W
RX 5700XT TDP: 225 W
Unless you are a poser and care about how your system looks, looks should be a secondary concern compared to bang for your buck.

That said, NVIDIA has always been superior in terms of VR. So I would lean towards a 2070Super provided you can find one for $500, or even a 2060 Super. They will be faster than the 5700XT.

That said, if you were doing just regular old gaming, the 5700XT delivers superior bang for the buck and offers very nice after market coolers now.

Then, I guess it Would be better buying an Rtx 2070 Super instead of an Rtx 2060 Super.
I Think is better to spend more in one time, than spending less and then having to buy again an expensive card.
