What are the best (cheapest) gpu for Adobe?

Hello guys, I am new here and this is my first post

So my rig is done and out and running good abd perfect

R7 2700x
Asus B450 f-gaming
Corsair 16gb C16 RGB PRO
Samsung 970 Evo 500gb M.2 SSD
3TB Seagate HDD
Zotac GTX 1050 ti OC edition
HP 1080p monitor 27"

So here is the deal. I built this system for Adove Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator (ONLY)

I will never use this system for any gaming at all even in the future, and will not change the monitor also. So i dont want to pay any premium for gaming.

Then i started thinking: I can return the card and get another one if I want. So my question is: is the 1050 ti able to run these 2 programs to a place where getting a higher end gpu would be useless gains? I just want a gpu that that goes to the sweat spot where it is useless to get better. I went fast and got this I know but if it ok and wont cause any problems i will keep it. if not i will think of the better one. however, if it is a bit of overkill, then that is ok i will keep it. i dont have a proble with a bit overkill bcs i dont want to be on the edge obviously. i just dont want to regret it on the future for not changing it now while i still can.

My goal is to run these 2 programs only as smooth as possible without causing and lag or stutter when putting any effect or or zooming that is gpu bound.

Just please forget about my other components.

Thank you a lot

So in other words: there is no noticeable difference that I will see in these 2 programs if I compare it to GTX 1660 ti or RTX 2060? Even After 5-7 years of use?

Adobe does use some GPU acceleration, and has been increasing GPU use year by year. Yes there is not much difference in most scenarios now. Do you want the ability to work with 4k/8K images with no stuttering? Do you want the ability to support 10 bit color? If you are not gaming I think a Radeon Pro WX5100 with 8GB VRAM is enticing. It uses even less power than your 1050Ti by the way, only using 75 watts.And produces more accurate imaging. $329 is not too bad for a system you plan on using for the next 10 years.
