2070 or 2060 Super?

I know this has been asked thousands of times, however:

- The 2070 in my case is £15 cheaper

- I plan on upgrading to 1440p 

- It may see very light VR use as I have a standalone VR which can also be connected to PC. 

I have narrowed down to two choices:

I really cant decide as although the 2070 is slightly cheaper, in PC Gaming I know I wont use the extra performance of the 2070 and the 2060S performance will be just fine for me. Games like DCS, War Thunder, and other simulators. (Hopefully the new MSFS). Plus I do like the three fans of the 2060S, although noise for me isnt much of an issue, less noise would be better. Also the 2060S has a nice LED Iluminated Logo at the top which is nice to have, and is a newer card. 

 

HOWEVER, the 2070 is a 2070 and is cheaper and I feel I may be overcomplicating this and I should just go with a 2070! Nvidia are also making it seem like the 2070 is already outdated, and it may not be very new but is it really that old as they make it out to be? What are your guys opinions on the cards?

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)
