Thanks, in 4 1. Pretty good deal compared to the 2060 "super" coming out at $350 (retail).

edit: sorry for the misinformation, the super is $399 msrp

I'd avoid the 2060 at this point, even for $280. It's memory-limited in a few current games in ultra or highest and will only be more so in the future. Plus the 2060 Super is a significant jump forward. It's definitely more money, but if one plans to keep their GPU 2-3 years, it's probably worth it.

For the record, I'm still running a water-cooled 290x so I definitely tend to keep my GPU a while...

Glad you were able to make use of the deal. RTX 2060 Super is actually going to be $400 retail (RTX 2070 and 2080 will be discontinued and RTX 2060/2070 Supers talking their spots in the price stack). RTX 2060 6GB will remain at $350 MSRP.

You get what you pay for. There's a reason why the SC version of the 2060 card is priced much less. I mean c'mon dude... it's only about ~$60 more for the higher version. Can't you afford that? Try skipping a few happy meals and ice cream sandwiches - you'll save up that money in no time. https://static.slickdealscdn.com/ima...2/applause.gif
You're talking about a greater than 20% price bump for negligible performance benefit for 90% of users. Granted, these single fan cards aren't the greatest, but the RTX 2060 is only a 160W TDP card. It doesn't really need a massive cooler.

The RTX 2060 Super only gives you a 9% performance increase on average (as it's just a cut down 2070), so not really a significant jump forward and a terrible value proposition right now at MSRP ($280 RTX 2060 vs $400 2060 Super). As for 6GB vs 8GB, it's a very small number of games that use more than 6GB and that's only at max settings at 1440P and above (or if you're using a ton of mods/texture packs). 6GB is still plenty for 1080P gaming (which is still the majority of gamers) and even at 1440P, you just dial back a few settings and 6GB is more than enough to last you 2-3 years (and likely more).

Here's a pretty comprehensive list of VRAM usage in modern games: https://www.techspot.com/article/...am-enough/

$ 350 2060 SUPER MSRP would kill AMD's new cards. The real MSRP is $ 399 for the 2060 super though.

Here is your $350 super, enjoy the cheapest one for $399 with no tax and free shipping to many states

With that, it may be still a good deal since you get around 1/3 performance increase vs $300 for 2060 shipped.

For me it would be skipping about 2-3 lap dances.

This looks like a contender to replace one of my 580's (still sore after my 1060 experience).

Are you me? Well I guess I have a water cooled 290...

Only reason I'm shopping is because my rad blew a leak and my 290 has stability issues caused by water damage LMAO. I paid like $225 for this card 3-4 years ago and card prices these days seem like a joke, my biggest dilemma is that I don't want to pay for another water block but I'm all about that 50db PC life.

That's exactly what did. Sold my RX 580 8GB and bought a RTX 2060 single fan model. Runs at 73* max when gaming (RX580 went up to 75*) and the performance is 50% - 70% better. Easily getting 110+ FPS on Overwatch on the highest settings at 3840x1600 resolution. Firestrike graphics score jumped from 15000 to 18500. This will tide me over til the AIB 5700XTs are available.

If anyone is near a giant eagle. To use fuel perks.. triple fuel perks on eBay gc from giant eagle online.

That is Ohio/PA region. 18% back as fuel. Also stacks with online category for some cc. Such as boa mlb card

in my case it works out to around 215 for the evga 2060
