I admit i'm a sucker for rgb shitYou're paying $135 for RGB fans. Just get one for the beginning, and invest the now free $108 into a better GPU.
Buy GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070 Super GAMING OC 8G Graphics Card, 3 x WINDFORCE Fans, 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6, GV-N207SGAMING OC-8GC Video Card with fast shipping and top-rated customer service. Newegg shopping upgraded ™www.newegg.com
In my opinion RGB should come last and if I'd have to choose between a better, 7% faster GPU and cool fans. I'd go for the better GPU, without hesitation.
Just get those fans down the road. They're just $26, you can get them one by one and end up with a much better PC in 2-3 months. Yes your total price will go up by $100, but that's just ~5.8% of your $1720 budget and you're getting 7% more performance.
Always look at total amount spent and the performance you are getting, not just the GPU price / vs performance when building new.
