Question Is the RTX 260 worth the £300 ?

Hello all, I’m building a PC for streaming and gaming (also some video editing and excel work etc) and have included the RTX 2060 GPU in my build. Now, I’ve heard some poor reviews on this GPU in terms of its price-to-performance ratio. Is it worth upgrading to something better/dropping down to something less expensive ? My overall build is pasted below (£1329), and I’m currently using a 1080p 60hz monitor but am looking to get a 120hz one in Jan sometime. Any help with this would be deeply appreciated! Thanks :)

Unless you're in a very powerful rush to build this system, I would skip the 2060 and wait until the 3070 is in stock. It'll be a similar price, but perform much better.

The other thing is that the 2060 Super is a much better card than the regular 2060, so avoid the base model if you're absolutely pressed into getting this system.

The other thing is because everyone wants the 30x range, you could pick up a bargain 2070 or 2080 when the 30x range is actually available, but I reiterate, get the 3070 or 3080 and ignore the 2060.
