If you are firmly decided on AMD, the next step would be to consider:

Budget

Power Supply

Target Performance

Current Monitor and sync type

Secondary concerns would include space inside the case as related to GPU size and temperature parameters.

I suggest looking on the retailer of your choice, finding one you like within budget and then see if it will fit and work off your current PSU or considerations to make what you like work.
If you are still on a 1080/60 monitor it would be something to consider changing as well.

Budget is 600 - 700.

I would wait till November to see where the GPU card market will settle out. But for what you have a 6700XT will be more than enough. You can even get a 6900XT on that budget, but your 3700X and PSU are holding you back.

You are in good shape. Would recommend one of the higher end options and a new PSU. 6700XT and a RM750X would be a good spot to be in.
Just wanted to drop in and say thank you. The new RM750 and 6700XT arrived yesterday and i installed them without a hitch. I am getting nearly 3 times the FPS now while gaming.
