Upgrading from RX480

Hey guys it's been a long while since I've been active within the tech community, so I'm a little out of touch with that the "best" is right now.

To put it into context, when I was last active on here the best mainstream setup you could have was a 1080TI and 7700K, lol.

Anyhow onto the question, as the title says I'm due an upgrade from my rx480 as its starting to struggle in the games that I want to play and is starting to have more pushing issues such as persistent screen flickering and sometimes artifacting issues.

 

So far i've found a 2060 super -https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Graphics+Cards/NVIDIA+GeForce/GeForce+RTX+2060+Super/Gigabyte+NVIDIA+GeForce+RTX+2060+SUPER+8GB+WINDFORCE+OC+Turing+Graphics+Card?productId=71541&utm_source=uk.pcpartpicker.com&utm_medium=referral

 

And a 2070 - https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Graphics+Cards/NVIDIA+GeForce/GeForce+RTX+2070/Palit+NVIDIA+GeForce+RTX+2070+8GB+Dual+Turing+Graphics+Card?productId=72108&utm_source=uk.pcpartpicker.com&utm_medium=referral

The 2060 super is £381 and the 2070 is £383 so I'd probably choose the 2070 as I assume its better?. But my question is, my budget is up around £450-£500, is there any other options within that price point? I'm more than open to another AMD card as this 480 has served me very well for around 3 years now.

 

 

If anyone has any input please let me know, also does anyone know if that Aria site is legit? I've seen it quite alot here in the UK but never personally ordered from them, seems a little sketchy with how cheap they are compared to other retailers.

2070 is slightly better than the 2060 super but it probably won’t make a noticeable difference in games. Also rtx 3000 should be available in a few months so you should wait till then

Mhm I'll see how much longer this 480 can hold out for and see what we get in a few months, if not I'll check out the 5700's. Cheers.
