Choice between rtx 2070 super graphics cards

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello. I'm having problems on choosing between two graphics cards right now, specifically the RTX 2070 super. My two options are the Gigabyte Windforce and the EVGA XC. I'd like to hear opinions and experiences with these two cards, both positive and negative ones, so that I can choose between these two.


Actual components:

Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX X570-E 


RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3200 MHz

Cooler: Corsair H60 2018

Power supply: Corsair RM 850i

Case: Sentey Arvina GS 6410 plus

EVGA: better customer support


Gigabyte: cooling performance is in theory, a bit better.


make sure you check GPU length support of the case though, I cant find pictures that show its internals but old cases with this many 5.5" support on the front usually leads to tight PCIe card length limit. Quite often 267mm (reference card length) is the max they would fit.

According to specs, my case can support cards of up to 330 mm long, so I think there shouldn't be problems with the cards' length.
