Particular RTX 2070 brand?

Hello,

Having a hard time choosing which 2070 brand to pick. I was set on the Gigabyte to match my MoBo but I keep reading peoples reviews and a lot are unsatisfied or fails within a month. Which variant is best these days? Thanks.

Original pick: https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GeForce-Windforce-Graphics-GV-N2070WF3-8GC/dp/B07JBTS8HR/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=GV-N2070WF3-8GC&qid=1557722533&s=gateway&sr=8-1#aw-udpv3-customer-reviews_feature_div

Almost every brand of RTX cards had issues in early runs, so it ain't much to be picky about IMO. But I would pick a card that has the A-binned GPU and a lot of these lesser priced cards are non-A GPU chips.

I'm partial to EVGA and Asus for my cards. I actually bought a Founders Edition 2070 and it's been fine. I bought the FE tho mainly for nostalgia. For years when I was broke I always read the reviews of the high end cards and saw all those reference cards in the cool builds. I finally had some cash this time around so I wanted to be one of the cool kids lol...

Other than the risk of getting an early or bad GPU there is nothing wrong with the card you picked the Aorus cards are actually worse than the Windforce models due to the flimsy cooler
