Question GPU to BenQ monitor dilemma!

I currently have a GTX 960 and I'm looking to build a new pc with a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU. However I use a BenQXL2411 monitor which only runs on 60Hz through HDMI but full 144Hz through DVI.

Option 1: Buy an RTX 2060 super card with a DVI port and keep my current monitor to save a ton of hassle.
Option 2: Sell my monitor and buy an RX 5700 or XT version and shell out an extra £125-175 on an entirely new monitor. (Every 5700 card I've seen lacks a DVI port.)
Option 3: Buy an expensive (£110) active dual link DVI display port adapter and keep my current monitor which would work with an RX 5700 card.

Here's the BenQ monitor - https://zowie.benq.eu/en-uk/product/monitor/xl/xl2411.html (1x DVI-DL 1x D-sub 1x HDMI)

Thanks for any help! :)

Why would you Upgrade to an RX 5700 if there is no big difference with the RTX 2060?

I would definitly go for the 2060 and use a DVI port. IF able, i would rather spent an extra buck and go for a 2070 and use it with your current monitor which it is already a very good one instead of the 2060 but the 2060 is fine too.
