    Would go for Radeon 5700 XT. Would be faster with same price.
    Not to mention all AMD!
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    A 240mm liquid cooler? Calm down, it's only a 65 W chip!

    If I were making it (which is an important point, as I'm not getting paid for my time*) then I'd swap the AIO cooler for a small CPU cooler (this should manage nicely, or just stay with the stock cooler) and strap this onto a 5700XT. It'll be as fast as a 2070 super system, and quieter at idle, and the parts come out a bit cheaper (£80 for the AIO and £10ish extra for the 2060, compared to £20 for the CPU cooler and £64 for the graphics cooler)

    * side note: if GPU coolers were as easy to change as CPU coolers, the computer gaming industry would be greatly improved (i.e. faster/cooler/quieter rigs for everyone)
