Specs for my Desktop Computer

Good day. Can you please assist. I am busy procuring a desktop computer for photoshop and light room but need advice on the graphics card and processors i have been recommended to buy. 

Asus Z390Plus + Asus GTX1660 + 15-8700

or

Gigabyte H370 + Gigabyte RTX2060 Windforce + i7-8700

OR

ASUS ROG Strix Z390E + PNY Quadro P2000 + i7-8700

Which will work better?

Despite what you might think Photoshop does not use the graphic processor that much so as long as it meets the Spec almost anything will do - not much point in paying for anything more than a decent card with 4Gb that supports OpenGL. Spend what you save on a good CPU - go for at least i7, and a a good SSD,

Just a thought about the new DT.  I have a SSD for all programs and run twin 4 tb drives running RAID1 mirroring.  If I run out of space, I just migrate to twin larger drives and never touch the programs.  Good luck!!!
