Which GPU for photo editing (C1, photoshop CS6) these days?

Hi folks,

I am thinking to build a new rig as my current system shows its age (built in 2014).

Sadly, the GPU cards are insanely priced (thanks to the miners :-)), but since I don't do gaming and video editing, I don't think I should go for a RTX 3070 ti for photo editing (I shoot mostly with a Fuji GFX50R equipped with a 50 MP sensor).

These days, it looks like pre-built computers are the way to go in order to get the best bang for the buck BUT I am not keen on the idea though as it does not allow picking the right components I would like to have (memory brand, specific case, etc..), and I prefer paying a bit more to pick what I really want!

What are your thoughts about the GPU for photo editing? Does a mid range card truly sufficient for photo editing?

I am thinking going with a Ryzen 5800x, probably liquid cooler, 32 GB (2x16 GB 3600 MHz), a fast SSD (500 MB or 1TB), a few HDD for backup. Still undecided regarding the motherboard (probably x570s) and PC case (but I don't want RGB case).

Thanks for the feedback.
