This or a 2060 for $300? I feel like the 2060 may be better due to rtx voice

Discord now has a relatively new noise suppression feature called Krisp that is pretty good at removing most typing sounds. Personally, I would not spend $70 more just for RTX Voice.

Assuming you game at 1080p, you're really better off saving for a 2070 Super deal. Surely these will hit at least $450 later this year.

If RTX (and really just for DLSS 2.0 supported games) interests you, then get at minimum a 2060 Super.

If you just want a card for the short term, snag the 1660 Super and sell it later. People will buy those up used for secondary rigs where they don't care about RTX at all, but want better performance than the entry-level 1650.

Get a 5600xt for around $260.

You might be able to get a 1660 super cheaper on evga. I snagged one for $210 after rebate and associates code which you can find on Google that saves you an extra 5%. I'm really not a fan of the 2060 KO ultra but you can get one on evga with that code I mentioned for $285 that's a good option as well.

am I missing something? EVGA charges for shipping so I wouldn't save compared to newegg.

Yeah forgot about that, it's 5050 sometimes they have free shipping and sometimes they don't.

EVGA has free shipping on their Wed deals.

But while I would pick EVGA for the price over Gigabyte, I wouldn't recommend them over the MSI. The MSI cards have excellent cooling and run cooler and quieter (as long as the slightly larger height isn't a problem in the case). EVGA needs to change their fans to avoid startup noises and fix their buggy software although you can use the MSI software on EVGA cards with a few limitations.

Compared to the 1660 Ti which still sell just below $300, this is a relatively good price especially for the well designed and built MSI but I wouldn't say a slick deal that one needs to grab or miss out. Just a current sale price likely to be repeated often.

errr, newegg deals are not so great, even this one on amazon is only 230 with slightly higher clock speed w/o rebate...If you have citi card offer, there would be a 30$ off by applying thank you points at checkout...

I'd spend the extra $40 for a 5600 XT https://www.newegg.com/sapphire-r...6814202373
