Best GPU for 1080p, 144hz Gaming

I'm looking at using a Ryzen 5 3600 in my next build, but I'm not sure about which GPU to choose. I'll be gaming at 1080p, 144hz. I'd like to get at least 144 stable FPS.

I'd like to stay below $530 if possible for the GPU. Should I go with a 2070 Super, 5700 XT, or what? Also, which of the cards is the best for thermals, noise, stability?

TIA!

A 2070 Super will allow you to game very easily at 1080p 144Hz, even 240Hz.

I've got an RTX 2060 and this allows me to play almost any game 1080p high - max at 144Hz.

If you wanted ease of mind to be able to play ANY game 1080p 144Hz, take the 2070, or 2070 Super

Which currency (USD? Australian? Canadian?) $500 USD = $660CAD or $730AUD.

What game titles? Some games will never give you 144 FPS unless they're older or considered an E-sport title.

Also, what GPU are you upgrading FROM, or is this your first build?

USD currency. Right now I'm on a laptop that has a GTX 1050 ti. The two games I play right now are PUBG and Rust. Most of the games I'll be playing would be E-sports.

PUBG recommended PC specs:

OS: 64-bit Windows 10 Processor: AMD Ryzen 5-1600 / Intel Core i5-7600K Memory: 8 GB RAM Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB or better

RUST recommended PC specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7-4690K / AMD Ryzen 5 1600 RAM: 16 GB OS: Windows 10 64bit Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 980 / AMD R9 Fury Disk Space: 12 GB

I would go for either a GTX 1660 Super or an RX 580 at a minimum. RTX 2060 Super or RX 5700XT if you've got a bigger budget. If you splash out on a RTX 2080ti, it won't necessarily give you faster frames but it will guarantee a longer relevancy at 1080p gaming. Invest in 16GB RAM and a 2.5" SSD to reduce loading times especially on games like RUST.

That depends on which games. Some games do not like to run at 144fps no matter what GPU or CPU you throw in there. Some games of course can run well above 144fps with 2013 tech. So it is always a question of titles rather than GPU. In general most games, perhaps 99% of the entire Steam Library will run well over 144fps (unless frame locked to 60) with a GPU like the GTX 1060 or 1660. If you want to run some contemporary AAA titles at 144fps or more at 1080p, that could be quite difficult even with a 2080TI. It is all about the particular games you want to play and balancing out a GPU in that regard.
