I would say the VEGA package looks like the better deal, but I would avoid it if it's a"blower" style cooler as these dissipate a lot of heat and will run loud with blowers. If it's a 3rd party cooling design (3 large fans), then I'd say go for it.

I don't think you should concern yourself with whether reviewers are telling the "truth." The issue here is that AMD and Nvidia architectures are different, and their drivers are different, so it's not uncommon for them to trade blows depending on the specific workloads.

If you have a G-sync display, obviously, 2070, otherwise, doesn't matter.

Vega 64 is a good card, albeit last gen, and will eat power. RTX 2070 is a newer card with lower TDP. Both trade blows but an OC RTX 2070 will likely edge it on many titles, although you likely will not perceive a difference. I personally recommend to check your monitor - Gsync vs Freesync. If neither, go with RTX 2070. If former, go RTX 2070, if latter, the AMD card. On off chance monitor is supported for Nvidia Freesync, then go with RTX 2070.

The Freesync vs G-Sync argument can't be solely used anymore. Since NVidia GPU's can use Freesync on most monitors (although it's performance may vary), that negates some of the bias for one over the other.

also remember check your PSU if it has enough juice for both cards
