Which rtx 2070 should I buy?

Go to solution Solved by TheSLSAMG,

I would just go with the XC Gaming. The performance difference is insignificant and it isn't worth the steep increase in price for the minor increase in performance.

I was looking to upgrade to a rtx 2070 from my Gtx 980. 

Which out of these is the best? Or if there is another one that is better please send an amazon link.

None, try and find a used 1070Ti or 1080 on Ebay.

I don’t really trust used cards unless I’m buying them from a friend or family member. Also the 2070 is better than the 1080.

If the seller has a good reputation then there is absolutely no reason not to trust them, also the 1080 and 2070 perform about the same.

Some people just prefer new hardware. I know I am certainly one of those people. Even if the person who had it previously took good care of the hardware it still doesn't change the fact that the hardware has some wear and tear from being used. When the 1070ti and other gpus were on good sales used I would have suggested buying them but buying a used card just to save a couple bucks at the performance level of a 2070 isn't worth it imo. If you are strapped for cash then sure but this doesn't seem to be the case here.
