Question Buying a Dell XPS Desktop - Which graphics card?

I've built plenty of systems over the years but I've finally reached the point in life where I'm not interested in overclocking, putting together components. I don't play computer games but the reason for my upgrade is because my current system chokes on my video production chores. I'm using a Pentium G3258 with 8G of ram which is a great general-purpose CPU but is insufficient for my new video hobby.

As such, I'm looking at various configurations and while I don't need a powerful video card for my video production software, it seems a shame not to take advantage of the prices I can get them for when buying a system. I was going to get the GTX 1660 Super which is only a $196 upgrade. I can also get a RTX 2060 but that tilts the scale higher than I can probably justify. I think the built-in Intel graphics is all I need for video processing but hey....never know when I might want to grab a game. I could always sell it on Ebay and probably come out ahead. If I went that route any input on which graphics card would be most desirable?

1650 super, 1660 super/ti, are all pretty much the same. 1070 ti would also be a good idea. My advice would is to just get one on ebay used. Probably the only way you can get a card nowadays anyways.

They include the cards with the build. That is about the only way to get a card these days. I just don't game enough to keep the card though. I'm going to sell it on Ebay. I bought a Dell XPS with a 10th gen i7-10700k, 16G RAM, 500G SSD, and the RTX-2070 Super and I plan on selling that card on Ebay and I'll throw my old GTX 750 ti in it and call it good.
