Asus ROG GTX 2070 purchase advice

Level 7
I've been checking out this graphics card online and was interested in advice/opinions if it'd be a good upgrade for me.

ASUS ROG GeForce RTX 2070 DirectX 12 ROG-STRIX-RTX2070-O8G-GAMING 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card $629

I'd be replacing my 980 Classified

Currently I just updated my gaming rig is the following specs-

Intel Core i9-9900K Coffee Lake 8-Core, 16-Thread, 3.6 GHz (5.0 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series) 95W

ASUS ROG Maximus XI Formula Z390 Gaming Motherboard LGA1151 (Intel 8th and 9th Gen) ATX DDR4 HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 Gen2 Onboard 802.11 ac Wi-Fi

Corsair Hydro Series, H115i PRO RGB, 280mm. Dual 140mm ML PWM Fans

I would pick the RTX 2080 instead of the 2070. The former safely keeps you above 60 fps in 1440p. ( and gives you almost 30% more CUDA-cores and streaming processors. It is a more well-balanced card for gaming in said resolution.
But, if you are not in a hurry, it might be worth seeing the benchmarks from Radeon 7 that is just days away. AMD is touting it is going to match the performance of 2080 but with a sticker price around the 2070.
