Gorgeous and decently powered GPU for my 1080p gaming needs. Word of caution to those who may consider this ROG Strix card. It measure 300mm wide. If I ever wanted to utilize the right side of my case. One or possibly two of the optional HDD brackets would not make it in. However, it did run Assassin's Creed Origins and Anthem very nicely at mid-high settings.

Based on my research, this is the best GPU in the under $400 range. (Normally this is a little over $400, but I got it on sale for $380 at NewEgg.) Looks cool. Keeps my Fortnite and Overwatch games crisp on the highest settings and high frame rates. Stays in the low 60's after a couple hours of gaming.

With 3 super quiet fans, this card stays very cool even when it's being pushed to its limits. It's a very heavy card, weighing a couple pounds, and taking up the same amount of room as a GTX 1080 Ti. RTX 2060 can take just about anything you throw at it at 60FPS in 1440p. I haven't had an opportunity to try it with raytracing yet, but it will earn you a 8000ish score in TimeSpy. This particular model is the most tricked out version of the RTX 2060 you can find. The backplate makes the card extremely durable. RGB, 3 fans, backplate, and the highest overclock you can get from a manufacturer, unless you go with a SUPER series card, you won't get better than this. It will require an 8 pin connector and a 6 pin connector to power the card. The cooler is one of the best you will ever find for any card. Besides having 3 dust-resistant fans, upon teardown, you will find several different methods of keeping the card cool, and I have yet to see this card go past 62 degrees while playing anything, even with DX12 settings turned on.
Gaming wise, not sure exactly how this compares to other types of cards, but supposedly it can be overclocked to nearly match the 2070. When NVIDIA's GeForce Experience recommends "OPTIMAL" settings, this card exceeds its expectations, and you can usually get a bit more out of the settings than it estimates you can because of it's higher overclock and superior cooling.
While the SUPER series just came out, this card is perfect for the enthusiast who doesn't game frequently, but wants a system that can handle anything he or she wants to play. Also, supposedly the encoder rivals quicksync, which makes it better for use with video.

from completed build Lil Beast - First build in 10 years.
I had my eye on the 2060 and 2070 and after lots of searching I found this gem for $350 on facebook marketplace local and couldn't pass it up. The fastest, coolest and maybe quietest 2060 model on the market. retailed for $400 so saved $50 and it was still in perfect condition. Runs any game I throw at it (1080p Max setting) without any issues, and I haven't even tried to overclock it yet.

Seems to work well. Looks pretty, has a lot of fans, runs the stuff I need it to run well. Has a little notch to the left of its connectors where you can fit cables through (at least that's what I think it's for), which helped a lot with cable management (my cpu power cable and went through here and down into my psu.)
Only shame is that half of the pretty lights come out from the gaps underneath where the fans are, so you can't actually see them.
