I'd go with this one...
It's been selling out. You can still buy it right now at that $240 price but it'll just be shipped when it's back in stock.
But this is just the one I'd go with because there's not much difference when it comes to performance between the same model 1660 Supers.
In order to find out the other types of differences, you'll need to do the research or study the research already done by other people.
Certain models are going to be designed differently so they'll run differently. Different clock speeds. Different coolers. Different temperatures. Different noise levels. Different power consumptions at idle and while under load. Etc, etc.
And remember that just because one might run at a different decibel level doesn't mean the sound of that decibel level is "noisy" or "whiny" to everyones ears, if that makes any sense.

im not sure exactly how much power that sorta stuff takes, but im guessing something like this would work great. its about 70% faster then your current card according to multiple websites. i would definitely do some research though.

Looks great but just to let you know, you have just the base 1660 in that build, not the 1660 Super. Here are the cards I was talking about,
Both are on newegg aswell. Both cards are great build quality, I would just get whatever one you think looks cooler.

Don't buy an Oculus, they're owned by Facebook and are forcing people to use Facebook accounts to login in the future. Stay away from them! Valve Index I think is the go-to. If he DOES get a VR game, use the program STEAM to buy games, it's industry standard and if he changes brands in the future, he will still get to keep his games.
This build, people can disagree with me or make suggestions, but this should be everything he needs.
If he wants nVidia brand graphics card, something around here would be fine for him: https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Gaming-Backplate-06G-P4-1068-KR/dp/B07ZHZL2JB/ I play VR games on a similar setup with a cheaper CPU (Ryzen 5 2600) and and that exact graphics card and I can play games like Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 with relatively good detail.
For reference, the SAPPHIRE brand AMD cards and the EVGA brand nVidia cards are the best brands to buy, they have the best customer service/build quality/warranty out there. Only two companies manufacture the processors for graphics cards, but dozens of companies assemble them to their own little specifications, and some of them (MSI, ASUS) have less than good reputations for customer service. This does not mean their products will break and be bad, it just means the other brands are more expensive versions of the same thing for a reason.
This card in my list is basically bare minimum to play games without issues, if he wants to play on the highest of settings he will need a stronger graphics card (GPU), as this is the bottleneck/weak point on this build. BUT, he will likely want to upgrade whatever you buy him a year from now anyway, so I say save your money now as this will get him started and get put in a box in a year anyway.
The processor (CPU) I provided should be good enough for anything he needs, you can go bigger and better but there is really no need to waste money.
The hard drive can be smaller for cheaper, and then add in a 2TB 3.5" HDD as a secondary hard drive later to store games. I have like a Crucial 250GB M.2 like the one I linked, but 1/4 the size for like $40 instead of $100.
That's the best budget case, the two fans included in the list go in the front and push air into the case, and the case comes with a fan in the back already to pull hot air out. This is important to prevent things from overheating and breaking.
This is a hybrid build of parts I used to build my computer, and then parts I used to build my brother's computer (learning from my budget-oriented mistakes and upgrading certain things)
Also, if you are smart and careful, you can find genuine windows 10 keys on eBay from computers that were broken in the factory, with a USB thumbdrive to install the windows from. Don't buy from anyone with low feedback, and don't buy from anyone outside of the USA. I bought mine for $15, this will save you $85 if you can find one.
Good luck and ask any questions, I love to help people get into the hobby.
Retailers people use a lot are Amazon (check who is selling it), Best Buy, Newegg and eBay if you check feedback first.
There's also /r/buildapcsales for sales if you want to be thrifty :)

This is for the American version of the same card but it’s good for the price. Though I think I mistook euro for BP again :P.

You're in a bit of an awkward situation, in that it may be more economical to upgrade your entire rig in the long run, but you are limited in cash in the short run. It may not be worth upgrading DDR3 RAM right now when in most cases DDR4 is around the same price per GB. But in order to upgrade to DDR4, you would need to upgrade your motherboard and CPU.
Assuming you can fit it into your budget, a new GPU is going to give you the most performance for your money right now, and should be compatible with what you already have. Ultimately what I would recommend is adding an additional SSD and upgrading your GPU, and then start saving for that CPU/RAM/MOBO upgrade or new pc later on, assuming you do want to build a new pc in 1-2 years. You could easily swap said new GPU and SSD into a new rig too. You could also overclock your 4690k in the meantime to breath some new life into into your pc.
For storage, you could add a 1tb SSD for a little north of 100 euros, or save some money and go with 500gb. I would very highly recommend going with an SSD over an HDD, unless you absolutely need that extra storage and are absolutely cash strapped. The difference in performance is huge, and you can always add more storage later on as you need it. A 2.5" sata SSD should work with what you already have, but based off a quick lookup of your motherboard, it does not have support for m.2 SSDs. But the performance difference may be marginal between the two for you.

Looks like a solid plan for budget build, here's a few changes/improvements I'd recommend if budget allows.
Power Supply: I'd see if you can find something at least 550W, Corsair is good brand or Seasonic.
Storage: I'd suggest a NVMe M.2 SSD as that board has M.2 slot, they're much faster and don't cost much more per GB. Also get a 1TB SSD if possible 480GB will fill up fast with games these days. I just upgraded to this 1TB WD blue M.2 SSD myself. I'd also think about adding like a 2TB HDD for storage especially if you get a \~500GB SSD.
Graphics Card: 570 is getting old I've got one from few years back but looking to upgrade soon, I wouldn't get a 570 now unless it's cheap like $100. Looks like 1660 super is about same price or only like $30 more than RX 570 8GB but much better.
Monitor (x2): LENOVO - G24-10 I think is an older 144hz TN panel? Can't find any for sale so not sure what you're paying. AOC-24G1 or G2 IPS version if you can find it in stock are very nice for the price. Tiny beasle, great tall and adjustable stand.

Yeah so the $600 build would be completely fine for fortnite and roblox, but if you want to up the power a bit more, like getting better looking graphics, you could go for a GTX 1660 super instead of the RX 570 in the build. I wouldn’t focus too much on trying to future proof for newer games as you have plenty of headroom to upgrade for when he gets into the more high power games, by that time you’ll likely be able to get much better value from a used Ryzen 3700x paired with some future graphics card and possibly more RAM. The case is completely up to you, just make sure that it’s either Micro ATX (M-ATX) or ATX. Something like this would be nice, and it already has RGB fans so you’ll just need the LED Strips and Controller

Yes according to this PCgamer 11 game average it would be a big performance bump. Not to mention Nvidia drivers are generally better:

Ok. You seem like a nice enough person and I would love to help. I reccomend creating a PCPartPicker list or starting with one of their already done ones as it allows for a nicely laid out and intuitive interface.
Mobo = Motherboard
RAM = System Memory. NOT storage. Where programs go when you open them. This is the thing Chrome likes to consume.
CPU = Processor
GPU = Graphics Card. Technically only means the actual graphics processor but it is common to use it to refer to the actual graphics card.
PSU = power supply
HDD/SSD = Hard Drive / Solid State Drive. Both are forms of mass storage for Windows, pictures, games, etc. More on that in a bit.
Chipset = what determines motherboard compatibility with CPUs.
Ok, with that out of the way, your budget should allow for a Ryzen 5 3600. This is the CPU. The Ryzen 5 3600 has 6 cores and is a fairly high end CPU on the market today, plenty for gaming / work / video editing / whatever floats your boat. This is around $200
That CPU can go with many different motherboards, but the kind that I would recommend is a B550 or B450 motherboard, like this one. Any motherboard with the B550 or B450 chipset will be compatible. These are around $130.
You will also need RAM. 16gb is probably about right for this build, and Ryzen likes fast memory (memory speed is measured in Mhz, the more the better but 3200 is a nice spot). This kit of DDR4 (the generation of memory) is compatible, fast, and will allow for plenty of multitasking / gaming / whatever you're into. About $60
Let's find a power supply. Power supplies are rated by 80+ certifications, and 80+ Gold is a nice place to be. Here is a power supply that offers enough wattage. This power supply is from a reputable brand and is a good price. $80
Storage: This is where you can get creative. SSDs are very fast but are more expensive. A typical situation is using a smaller SSD for the operating system and a big hard drive for files since hard drives are slower, but cheaper. An SSD that I would reccomend is this one which is $55 and has 500gb of storage, coupled with a hard drive like this one, which has 2tb of slower storage. Perfect, storage is $110.
All that is left is the graphics card, assuming that you are reusing your case. For this, we have about $220 to spend so let's get a Radeon rx5600xt. This is the GPU. Linked here is a good card. Alternatively, you could get an nVidia graphics card, like this one. This goes a little bit over budget, but offers better performance.
Windows is free as well, it will just have a watermark in the bottom right of the screen. If this bothers you you can purchase a license for $120 from Microsoft, but you can use it inactivated for an indefinite amount of time.
I hope this helps. If you have any questions, please let me know. I will make a PCPartPicker list and put it here too.

These two seem to have the same price ($239.99) when I ordered one of them, few days ago.
I'm waiting for the Ryzen 7 3700X to drop in price, and soon, I think they all will.
