Recommended GPU?

Hi all,

I am in the market for a new PC.  My current one is about 10 years old, running an intel i7-4770, 16 GB ram, and an Nvidia 960 GPU.  Almost all functions are unbearably slow, but Lightroom especially.  I'm more than satisfied that I got my "money's worth" out of it and am ready for an upgrade.

I'm planning to increase the power slightly with an i9 and 32 GB ram.  Where I could use some help is on GPU recommendations.  I know Lightroom's use of the GPU has changed considerably since I purchased the 960, and I have not kept up with Nvidia's conventions and technology.

What GPU do folks recommend for Lightroom?  I don't do games and don't do much photoshopping.  I'll occasionally do some editing in Topaz but I essentially work almost exclusively in Lightroom.  Also, not much work with videos (except for the occasional work with home videos in Lightroom).

I'm looking to get maximum bang for my buck--what's the GPU that will cost me the least but give me the most performance in Lightroom?
