Please help me decide between 5500XT 8GB , 1650 super

Good morning-evening everyone 

Now that is black friday I found on sale the Asus GTX 1650 super for 210 USD with shipping and Sapphire Pulse RX 5500 XT 8GB at 225 USD with shipping But the catch is that for the 5500XT i need to wait less than a week , while for the 1650 super I will wait at least 10 days

Soo please help me choose , the difference  is 15 USD but is it and the patience woth for 1080p gaming and light use of premiere pro?
In some videos it is shown that the 1650 super beats the 5500xt

I live in greeece so prices aren't from amazon or newegg and i had to convert EUR to USD. Also the 5500xt xomes with a game (which the store doesn't specify)

double the ram on the 5500XT, for only $15 extra, seems like the better deal

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

you can really max out anti aliasing and texture quality if you like, especially in more modern games with high res textures

I've got a 1650 Super in my work computer, it's fine. I'd go 5500XT for the extra VRAM. Games like Doom 2016/Eternal, Apex, Titanfall 2, Far Cry 5, can leverage the extra VRAM for texture streaming budgets without negatively affecting framerates. REALLY helps with textures taking a while to load in and popping in.

True 

 

I suppose it is a better deal

How about a used 1060 6gb at 190 USD 
is that better than the 5500xt?

No a 1060 would definitely be worse.
