With one monitor it is hassle free for me since the beginning.

And new cards will most likely come out 2nd half of this year, probably 4th quarter, so if it was me, I would buy now also.
I think that happens on both camps. OP, here is my cpu usage in gaming with the 5700XT paired with a R7 2700 stock.

By Built-in Benchmark Queen:
My 2.5 years old delidded 7980xe @ 4600mhz all core with 49ns memorylatency (4000c16 twekaed) is faster than 3950x max overclocked on water in every scenario. Pretty good for a ancient cpu
In gaming it has no chance vs my new 10900k @ 5400mhz and 4600c16 tweaked memory. ~35ns memorylatency.
