An $800 card???????

Looks like plenty here for less than $350:

I've been looking at prices almost everyday during the last couple days and I think prices are starting to drop because I'm pretty sure the RTX 2060 were a bit higher.

I do agree with what others previously said to wait for AMD's release of their new GPU and I know for sure next year prices will drop and I'll probably get a used 1080Ti or a 2060 Super

But then again, if I do get another faster GPU it will only be for bragging rights (based on my personal PP needs) as we can see there is really no point in me doing that either until Adobe makes a drastic change on their part. Besides, it looks like not even my new 3900X is being fully utilized either which is sad, so I feel I'm pretty much set on the hardware side for many years to come and there is nothing else for me to do and no need to waste more money. The ball is on adobe's hands now.

For sure if a different company comes up with the same type of workflow or better as LR I'll leave Adobe in a heart beat
