This would last you a long time and puts you as near to the top end as you can be without getting into crazy prices for smaller gains.

Your monitor doesnt have the most demanding resolution and you could feasibly drop down to a 3070 or 3070Ti and save a little. The only problem I see with that is the 8GB of VRAM those cards come with may become a problem in a few years, especially if you upgraded the monitor.

Its also perfectly possible to come up with something a fair amount cheaper as well that would do a great job, but you said no budget without being overkill :)
