[D] Looking for advice on my PC build for ML

Hey,

So I’m about to build my first ever PC, which I’m going to use mainly for NLP tasks. My budget is around €1100 ($1200). I’ve read Tim Dettmers’ blog post about GPUs, however he didn’t update it yet and RTX Super cards got released.

At this point I’m thinking about going with an RTX 2070 Super, I’m not sure however if the price differences between the 2060 Super, 2070 and the 2070 Super are even worth it. A quick comparison:

RTX 2070 Super RTX 2070 RTX 2060 Super
Tensor cores 320 288 272
Memory 8GB 8GB 8GB
Bandwidth 448GBps 448GBps 448GBps
Price $500 $480 $400

Also, this is what I came up with so far. If anyone would add any suggestions on this as well, it would be greatly appreciated.
