depends where you live
i bought brand new 1080 ti for 300e 3 months ago and 3700x for 270e
If you buy one with custom cooling, you shouldn't have a problem with overheating (ie don't buy the original closed with 1 vent version)
heating depends on venders, if you get something like asus strix or gigabyte windforce it wont be a problem
I would say for CPU amd became a valid option lately. but in terms of GPU its nvidia all the way!!
just dont get the cheapest version of the GPU. if you go for asus or msi or gigabyte you should be fine
If u hv money, nvidia always
my rx570 go to 89 celsius when in max config game,but just go msi afterburner and speed up the fan,it stay at 70C ez
The simple truth is that you should get whatever is available in your region and is within your price range. Once you've selected a product, google its exact model and look for reviews from VERIFIED buyers and not random twats on HLTV whose entire knowledge comes from watching Linus Tech Tips and GayzTwoCents. If there aren't any consistent complains from verified buyers, get the product and don't worry about it.
Some free tips - avoid Nvidia 1650. The card is terrible value for money in every country I've visited. Avoid the Nvidia 1660 Ti - get the 1660 Super instead. Avoid RX 5500 from AMD - not as bad as the 1650 but not a great card by any means. Avoid blower-style cooler cards with 1 fan, they always are generally poor performing and loud. If you're looking for a mid-range GPU check out the RTX 2060 and 2060S, also the RX 5600 and RX 5700 if the price is right. In case you're on a tight budget the 1650 Super could be the card for you.

Get Powercolor Red dragon/Sapphire ones and don't be afraid for heating
I have rx 5700 and for the money it outpeforms nvidia's options but you will have a lot of problems with drivers
Tbh nvidia is producing garbage atm so if you want to support serious competition buy amd Vega 64 it's cheap and you can underwolt it reducing heat and power comp. Nvidia has to stop with rtx before it's relevant.
The new 5500-5600-5700 AMD GPUs are made with 7 NM tech so I doubt they have heat issues, if anything the tech should mean they use less power than the equivalent Nvidia cards.
And from the reviews they seem to be good value for money, all mid range cards si they do not compete with the top end Nvidia cards.
Best you can do is to read a couple of reviews and make up tour mind from there, do remember to check current pricing also as I think the new AMD cards made Nvidia lower some of their prices to stay relevant.
PS. Also, it is rumored that both AMD and Nvidia will bring top end cards come summer time so if you are not in a hurry perhaps wait and see what that is. I think AMD is up to something.
Yeah man just listen to what #12 said and good luck and enjoy. Just say if you need more advice))
amd GPUs are heating due to lack of contact pressure between chip and heatsink, its basically a DIY issue, if that's all you're worried about
Rx 5700/5700xt is a beast but make sure you get one with an aftermarket cooler unless you want your pc to sound like a jet engine
dont buy amd gpus, they have driver problems.
Both manufacturers are viable options and it depends on the price point as to which one might be favourable. But neither is far ahead of the other in any category at the moment, except the high end where AMD don't feature at all.
Ideally AMD would be way better value but they're having driver issues from time to time
