If you don't like the cheap single fan 2060's, I would just get the FE 2060S if it's that close. I'm not sure if any of the fancier 2060's will come down in price and it's probably not worth it to wait if you are getting a 2060S anyways.

Also why get the FE? I would just get this for the same price: https://www.evga.com/products/produc...08G-P4-3067-KR

I believe TPU reviewed this 2060S from EVGA and it had slightly lower temps than the FE. Plus you get EVGA support and the step up opportunity.
You mean this: https://camelcamelcamel.com/EVGA-GeF...context=search , right? Looks like they were at $299.99 on Amazon just for a few days. I won't be able to buy from Newegg since they suck and don't accept international credit cards so I'm left with Amazon. And with Amazon I can file a tax refund so I'd prefer Amazon.

Oh, I didn't know there were AIB 2060S cards that have the same prices as the FE's. If that's the case, then I'm all for EVGA but more for the warranty and not for the step-up (because shipping will kill me in case I need to upgrade within 3 months).
