Help me pick a GPU! Building in a DAN CASE A4

TL;DR: I waited way to long to ask advice! 

Okay, so I need your best advice, post haste! I have never been so lost when making a build at this time. I am building in a Dan Case A4 (v2), so I got a reasonable cpu and some other parts that go well with it (I think). The only thing I haven't picked is my GPU, and since all my hardware is arriving tomorrow, and most gpu's ship in the Netherlands overnight I have to pick within about two hours. I was thinking a vega64, but in the Netherlands I couldn't find a site that sells less than 2.5 slot vega64's. So I could go a little down in spec, and save a little money, but where is the fun in that XD

So my only real options as far as I can see are 2070's and 1080's. Both the 1080's and 2070's are priced around 650-700 USD (580-700 euro). 

So this is a selection of the cards I can easily get my hands on:https://tweakers.net/categorie/49/videokaarten/producten/#filter:HY3BCsIwEET_Zc4J7KaUSj5A8CAI9SYeQrvKQqslKSKW_LtJL8MMM4_Z8NCY1kvUQa46y1lf8CC2TNYRH2DwjqPEfpHhNMJbNljCU3r9CTwTlVjZnSshld1Rp1Vigt_gXNVPmOBv4KZtO9yzQUPc1WLe37iczOFbnEPO-Q8


So maybe the EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC for 720 USD



Or maybe a Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming OC for 660 USD


The Build:
Dan Case A4 (v2)

Intel Asus ROG STRIX B360-I

Processor Intel Core i7 8700

Noctua CPU Cooler NH-L9i 

Kingston DDR4 Hyperx Fury 2x16GB

Corsair PSU SFX SF600 Platinum
960 NVME (256gb)

It's better to use a more efficient card in a case this small anyway


I myself would just buy the cheapest 2070 (one of the Gainward Phoenix GS), because I don't mind sending cards back for repairs and can do minor ones myself. If you don't trust the brand, get the MSI Armor or EVGA Black. 2070s are very similar between the cheapest and the most expensive so it's pointless to buy those costing more than 550 Euros.
