The card I'd recommend for what you want would be a 3070 or a 3070Ti, and your power supply could handle that pretty easily. I specced your usage with that GPU at ~470W with a few more storage devices and an all-in-one cooler you probably don't have.

IMHO the 4070Ti could work, but is not a good buy right now with a deal like this on the table:

https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-Graphics-DisplayPort-Military-Grade-Certification/dp/B0BQ921V81/ref=sr_1_2?gclid=CjwKCAiAoL6eBhA3EiwAXDom5lnx_1viBOzWp_JBL6INuJE69Rzvt2CJfyf76dvSjO5Jwb7ujpd1MBoCCcwQAvD_BwE&hvadid=622735913905&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9012152&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=17905976353930058115&hvtargid=kwd-963927081971&hydadcr=25648_13467814&keywords=gtx%2Brtx%2B3070&qid=1674561486&sr=8-2&ufe=app_do%3Aamzn1.fos.2b70bf2b-6730-4ccf-ab97-eb60747b8daf&th=1

What do you think?    

PS I'm not selling that card in particular, it's just a good one I found. Please look around for yourself. There's not a very large performance difference between the 3070 and the 3070Ti, so check framerates and shop wisely.

IDK, my system is 5yo with a 1070 in it. There are adapters available that will get you where you need to be. Perhaps one of my brethren knows for sure, and will speak up. The Internet knows everything.
