You wouldn't necessarily buy NVIDIA's own reference GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Founders Edition (my review here) anymore, when there are custom designs that whoop its ass all over the shop. GIGABYTE does this with its custom GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING OC, offering better-than-FE performance, virtually silent operation, and much cooler temperatures under load.
If you're a 1440p monitor owner at 60Hz then this is the perfect card for you, but if you're playing esports-style games like Apex Legends, Overwatch, League of Legends, CS:GO then the RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING OC is going to be absolutely fine. You'll reach 100FPS+ average in all of those games with some in-game visual setting tweaks.
GIGABYTE also has your back when it comes to 4K gaming if you want to jump into some high-end AAA games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus, and many others offering 60FPS or so. Once again, if you drop some of those details down to medium you're going to get 60FPS minimum, which is a minimum requirement for me personally. 4K gaming at 30FPS isn't ideal, that's for sure.
If you're in the market for a new custom graphics card, the WindForce 3X cooling system on the GIGABYTE RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING OC will take care of you, while performance is there in spades. The stock RTX 2070 SUPER FE is already a powerful card, with GIGABYTE offering a few more percentage points of performance all while being a few percentage points quieter and cooler.

The Bottom Line
WindForce 3X cooling tech, RGB lighting, nothing too over-the-top. This is what GIGABYTE offers with its GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING OC, and enough performance to handle today's games without a problem.
