    Got an EVGA RTX 2060 Super SC Black for $399 or MSI RTX 2070 VENTUS GP for $399 after rebate (I always do them). Both get Death Stranding which I have been wanting. I know Ampere is coming "in a few months" and I know i'm not paying the prices.
    so what you guys think? I thought the 2070 but wanted opinions.

    Also, which monitor?

    Cheap 1440p

    32" version of cheap 1440p

    Pricey 1440p

    Pricier 1440p

    Dell 32" 1440p

    Your pricey 1440p is a VA panel and pricier 1440p is an IPS. The first two and the Dell seem to be TN (from a brief glance)?

    In which case skip the TNs. If you’re after speed and overall colours get the IPS, if you’re after contrast ratio get the VA.

    My personal preference is IPS

    The 32" version is a VA panel, not TN. The 1500R curve leads me to believe it's the same panel in my Asus that I have tested but not used properly yet. Same refresh rate.

    I was awfully impressed. Do note it states back ordered though, which could mean anything right now.

    yeah, if the budget can stretch think i want to go that route...turns out the RTX 2070 was $399 after a promo code and $379 after rebate...but i've seen that MSI Ventus version crap out twice now...granted one of them was a kid down the street throwing an immediate 10% additional OC before even starting a game on it...
