Here's the deal. My setup consist of:

Sapphire RX 580 4gb
MSI B450 Tomahawk mobo
8+8gb RAM Corsair RGB
Ryzen 5 3600
Corsair CX600
Corsair Spec 04 case
1tb WD blue HDD + 256gb Adata SSD

Im looking for an upgrade to my RX 580 4gb. I use my Samsung 49' 4k Led TV as a monitor. Im not a hardcore gamer by any means but i would like to run Battlefield 1/V, CoD Warzone, GTA V, PUBG at 1440p (60hz, 60fps). I can stand 1080p, too.

IIRC the 49' Tv has 20ms of input lag.

The cards that i can afford are Sapphire/Msi RX 5500xt 8gb, Sapphire/Msi RX 5600 6gb. What about the 8GB version of the RX 580?

I would like to keep in the AMD camp.

I don't think any of those are a big enough performance improvement to be worth the trouble. A 5600 XT though would be useful.

Even with a 5600 XT, 1440p 60 fps will be difficult with some games. Either way, 1440p scales poorly on a 4k screen; I'd either stick with 1080p as my goal or else save up enough cash for a proper 4k card. Just my 2 cents.

Even that video shows several games are not averaging 60fps. If you want games released in the next 1-2 years to average you want something higher. I had a 2080S for about a year and 4K required compromises.
The video does state that the recording may drop the fps by 2-5. Both AMD and Nvidia software has "Optimize" option where it will adjust settings for optimal performance.

5700xt at $360 competes with RTX 2070 at $460.

5700xt is best bang for the buck.

Here are some more benchmarks:

Bang for buck is debateable. Yes in benchmarks but the 5000 cards suffered issues with drivers and I've seen many threads on here of people giving up on these cards. Little point in owning a stronger gpu if the game you want to play has driver issues. Great card for the price when it works. Even that review shows its performance is just passable for 4k. I wouldn't pick that card with intention of running future AAA games at 4k.

Based on the cards that the person is looking at, I'd say his budget is $250. I recommend saving and getting a 5700xt which I hope are going to be in low $300s and is capable of doing 4k.
The card has been out for over a year and I'm sure most of the driver issues are worked out by now.

Here's some Warzone 4k benchmarks:
