Went with 2070 Super (Gigabyte Gaming OC) and LG 27GL850 monitor.
So far so good.
The CPU (4790K @4.6) seems to hold up in Call of Duty Warzone, too (mostly in the 60-80% range of usage).
The card seem to work flawlessly so far, boosting well over 1900mhz in game without any additional noise, keeping temps at 60-65 degrees.
Also I love that you can set "max frame rate" in Nvidia control panel, both globally and per game, without engaging any third party software.
Those are those little things, that for me justify "overpaying" for nvidia.
I just plug in the card, the monitor, install the drivers and boom, everything works like a charm.
Thank you guys for your opinions, again.
