Want a modern card for my brother so he can do work plus play at the same machine
Mostly VFX works and multimedia and also recent aaa titles at 60+ fps 1080 or 1440
Budget 300-500 USD.
Team Red or Blue or Green
Whatever
Thanks in advance and it also should work as good after 5 years later should be Future proof at least.
 
Future Proofing is more or less a flight of fancy since technology keeps advancing at ever growing steps. In 5 years who knows where we will be, will teh card still work, sure but your expectations of the performance will have to change.

Saying that for 300-500 USD that puts a RTX2070 at the high end for a new card and a RTX2060 in the middle area. You could also buy a new GTX 1660ti or perhaps find a used 1080ti which is still better then a 2070 or a used 1080 which is about the same, none will have Ray Tracing but at this point its a huge gimmick, but in a couple years who knows.

Ok Then rtx 2060 lower end or getting a used 1080ti
So second hand components last long?
Are there any news of price cut?
So what is the manufacturing process of current Nvidia higher end cards?

This. "Future proofing" is just a marketing gimmick to entice you with another justification to spend your money. Even my AVR is now obsolete thanks to 4K60fps and HDR, eventhough the time i bought it is "futureproof" for 4K passthrough (but at 30fps and no HDR). 4k60fps and HDR still wasn't a common thing 5 years ago.
