Which card should I get?

I'm not sure which of these cards I should get, one of them is a 2080 super that has a 240mm radiator on it https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/7MZzK8/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-2080-super-8-gb-aorus-waterforce-video-card-gv-n208saorus-w-8gc

The other is just a 2080 with a 120mm radiator on it but it's 90$ cheaper for me. https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/b7qhP6/msi-geforce-rtx-2080-8gb-sea-hawk-x-video-card-geforce-rtx-2080-sea-hawk-x

I now the 2080 super is around 7% faster and this specific card would have better cooling but I'm not sure it's worth the extra 90$

You should get an air cooled card but if you want to do water cooling do custom or get the card with a 240mm radiator, the 120mm will run too hot.
