So, I need advice that I’ve built a computer graphics, digital art, video game and multi-media workstation for programs like Maya, 3D studio Max, Krita, Medibang Paint, Adobe software, Corel painter and studying gaming engines (ex-unreal engine 4).. Help me make changes to make this PC more powerful

Ryzen 9 3900x with a Ninja Scythe Cooler
Gigabyte x570 arous elite mobo
40GB Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 ram @ 3000mhz (16GB + 3 @ 8GB)
XFX Radeon 7
500GB 850 Evo SSD
4TB WD Black Hard Drive
850w Power Supply

Thinking of getting a Nvidia RTX 2070 super, 2080 or 2080 super, adding a stick of 16GB ram (2 @ 16GB & 2 @ 8GB) and upgrade to a Ryzen 9 3950x cpu.
 
Are you saying you already own a Radeon VII, or do you mean some other card? On average, a 2070 SUPER should perform rather similar to that card in most games (though that can vary depending on the game engine), and the 2080 and 2080 SUPER won't be too much faster (not much more than 10 to 15% respectively), and they only have half the VRAM of a Radeon VII, which may or may not be relevant to your work. The RTX 20-series cards do provide some hardware acceleration for raytracing though, which you might want to experiment with.

About the only significant upgrade from a Radeon VII at this time would be a 2080 Ti, but those are priced in the $1100+ range. If you already have a Radeon VII, it might be worth waiting until later in the year, when new high-end graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia are expected to launch.

40GB of RAM? That's a weird number. When you buy RAM you buy RAM in a kit. You do not mix 2 brand and model together. What you should buy is 32GB of RAM 2x16GB RAM KIT. Since you're gonna use a 3900x or 3950x you should buy 3200 or 3600MHz RAM CL16. At least 3200.

The motherboard is fine. I use this one too with my 3900x.

Since I’m a console gamer, my pc is mostly for productivity, digital art and content creation. So, you think it would be best to save for a 2080 super or 2080 Ti then to produce animations, video game creation and digital design when they go on sale at end of the year.
