Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 has emerged as the least expensive version of Turing to date, and potentially one of the best graphics cards for gaming, particularly if you're building an entirely new PC from the ground up. It will probably be a while before we see tantalizing discounts. However, there are a couple of factory overclocked models available at Nvidia's reference $219 price point.
Same as with the GTX 1660 Ti, Nvidia is not selling its own Founders Edition model. For this generation, those are limited to the RTX series. But unlike those cards, you can score an overclocked model without paying extra.
The two overclocked models that are in-stock at that price right now are from Gigabyte and EVGA.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 OC Windforce | $219.99
This factory overclocked cards kicks the boost clock up from 1,785MHz to 1,830MHz for better performance. A custom two-fan cooling solution keeps temps in check. Buy at Newegg
EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 XC Black Gaming | $219.99
Like the Gigabyte card above, EVGA gooses the boost clock to 1,785MHz. This one has a single fan, which allows for a shorter profile compared to Gigabyte's card (7.48 inches versus 8.82 inches). Buy at Newegg

Being a brand new product, it's not surprising that so many SKUs are out of stock. We expect that will change rather quickly, though, so click through on any models that catch your eye.
