What budget?
What exact psu do you have?
Is this to play the latest AAA games at 4K?
Well around £400.
RMi Series RM1000i 1000W '80 Plus Gold' Modular Power Supply (CP-9020084-UK).
I want to get a 4k monitor at some point next year when I will be able to purchase PS5 to enjoy both - PC gaming and PS5 gaming.
 

RTX 2080

400 Euros isn't really enough to buy a solid 4K GPU.

The best you can do with that money is a RTX 3060 Ti which isn't powerful enough for 4K 60 fps gaming; its probably only around 20% faster than your current 5700 XT. To game at 4K 60 fps with high settings, you'll want a RTX 3080.

You will struggle to get a good 4K 60fps gpu for £400. The closest is the 3060Ti. No point looking at the 3070 as it’s barely any better than the 3060Ti. An I deal gpu would be the 3080 or 6800xt.

The psu is good, no problem there.

so a good graphics card would be around £700-800 ? isn't a new card comes out soon or something which should drop the prices down a bit of the olders cards?

All the new 4k capable GPUs are already out, and older GPUs have not dropped in price at all (they've gone up actually due to widespread shortages).

The new cards only just released. The best of the last generation (2080Ti) is similar performance to the 3060Ti/3070 and still costs more. With Ray Tracing on the 3060Ti/3070 outperform the 2080Ti. AMD had nothing of this level with their old cards.

Edit: when prices normalise the 3060Ti should be under £500.
