@OP, 2060 references were based on passmark scores, https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/directCompute.html
Passmark doesn't accomplish things, it's just a benchmark. If you have more accurate benchmarks from the workload you are using, refer to them. They will be more reliable for what you are doing.
$200 for 32GB, $250 for mobo and CPU for 2600.

OP seems the 2070 8GB is the preferred card over 2060...or maybe 1080. Really need as much VRAM as you can afford. The limiting factor in your daily work will be cpu clock speed and core count. Higher IPC greatly improves user experience( less lag).
