Hello,
recently i have received my gigabyte rtx 2060 and i will be returning it due to it heating up easily and making noises,
i have watched many reviews and when i return the gpu i dont know which gpu should I buy, Do i stick to the rtx 2060 but a different model or go for a rx 5700?
i also like to stream and i dont know which one would be better.
I am using a ryzen 5 2600, 16gb 3200mhz ram

If you bought the Gaming OC model - I recommend paying a bit more money and getting a higher tier 2060 - you'll get a better cooler with it.

yes i did, to be honest i dont really think that i will be using the ray tracing feature in this card, would it be better if i got a gtx 1660 super gaming x, it has a higher clock speed and it costs 50£ less?

Depends on the resolution you game at and totally upto you. It will do 1080p just fine. Though 1440p you might need to turn down some settings but it will still run decently according to reviews.

A 5600XT would be a good buy. Its sort of a middle ground. A 5700 is around the same level of a 2070S if not equal

I would get the 5600XT just for the extra horsepower for future titles if you really want to cut back and save your money

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
Can you afford a 2060 Super? The extra 2GB of RAM and extra bandwidth make it fast enough that it justifies the extra expense - and the 8GB VRAM will be a better investment for future gaming. I'm already feeling the squeeze with my 6GB 2060FE (Doom eternal can't run either of the top two graphics settings without an 8GB card)

I have a 5700XT in the other machine and I'm very happy with it. I would probably suggest going for a 5700 if performance/$ matters the most, stick with Nvidia if you want silence, they are generally quieter because AMD have a nasty habit of overclocking and overvolting all of their GPUs. You can make them cool and quiet without losing any performance, but it requires tinkering with voltages. Nvidia cards are typically tuned better for voltage/fan noise by default.
