Is Evga *that* much better than Founders?

In case you haven't seen it, JayzTwoCents recently made a video that seems relevant here.

Heyo! I'm planning on building a decently high end rig pretty soon, and I've come to a bit of a stand still. I don't know whether to get the Founder's Edition of the RTX 2070 Super, or the EVGA variant. I'm aware that EVGA offers some pretty good warrenty and customer service, but I like the aesthetics of the Founders edition significantly better - especially since my case has a glass side panel and I'm gonna be seeing the card all the time.

 

Any thoughts, recommendations, pros and cons on each side, etc are really appreciated, thanks so much in advance :)

The founders edition has a stock cooler. It gets the job done, and it's a lot better than what AMD has tried to pass off, still using a blower style, but aftermarket coolers are generally better. EVGA included. Both will work, and unless you've got some serious thermal issues with your case airflow, they should be within a few percent of each other.

What specific EVGA model are you considering


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

I would say yes. Especially when many places will have the EVGA on sale below msrp.


My new build! 8/22/19

I believe it's the standard version -

It has been a little while since I've researched PC parts though, so I'm not sure how many variations of this card exists.

Their XC model outpaces the founders a lot. At the same noise levels it'll have more performance.

Darn, alright. I do wish EVGA made theirs a little more pretty, but if there's a noticeable difference in performance, I'll probably go with them. Thanks a ton for the response, it means a lot :)
