[SOLVED] Confuse about GPU upgrade

Last year, I built a desktop for the sole purpose of editing video (my new found passion). Being my first built, I'd probably under budgeted a certain key elements.

This was my initial built:
  • AMD Ryzen 7 2700x
  • MSI Nvidia GTX 1060 6gb
  • 32gb (2x16) DDR4 3200
  • NVME SSD 1tb
  • HDD 2 gb x 2
  • AsRock B450M Pro MBO
I have since upgraded the CPU to 7 3800x. On the other thread, we have decided that I don't need a 3rd party cooler for what I am doing.

I am planning to upgrade the GPU but am a bit confused with all the variation.

I use the machine primarily for Adobe Premiere Pro, Media Encoder, Some After Effect and Davinci Resolve . I am looking for smooth scrubbing of the video.

Can anyone suggest a GPU that is specific to my need (no gaming) without breaking the bank? Is it necessary to have 8gb instead of 6gb in a GPU?
