For the same price he'd be able to afford lot more powerful gpus, if not to spend a penny more. Gtx 1660 super was great deal for price so far, until next gen started approaching. But the issue is that it's going to fall short at job to reach 144fps@1080p, in many games. Well, it will work well, yes, but it's not gonna be any cheaper option, if he ends up upgrading it soon anyway. Unless he planned to upgrade it all along anyway and just couldn't handle waiting anymore.
