Hello guys, I'm planning to get a new PC and I already got the 3900x but was thinking to go with 2070 super, will it bottleneck? Or should I go for 2080 or 2080 super, mostly for casual usage and gaming.

No. That CPU can carry four 2080 Ti's in SLI. I will have the 3900X with only a RTX 2070, not even Super.

It's better to have a weaker GPU than CPU, rather than the other way around. You'll be fine.

Once games get used to 6 cores and even surpass 6 cores, the CPU will have even more value.

a 3900X is quite a strong CPU, and, although it may not match the 9900K or 10700K or above in pure gaming (difference less pronounced with GPUs less than the 2070 Super) , it's plenty. (However, so are the 3700X and 3800X, as the extra cores of the 3900X for gaming are currently not really any advantage yet....)

Lol.....A 2080 for "casual gaming"? Waste of money if you're not gonna use it. I. A casual gamer and the 2060 is overkill for me. My old i7 2600k was bottlenecking it somewhat, but my new 3900x does not
