Upgrading RX 580 For Better Vr Experience

Last year when building my computer i had already had the rx580 and just decided to use it with my system anyways because it works great in games, What it doesnt do so well in is VR. Recently around the beginning of summer i got the rift S and immediately had to overclock to get 60fps, some games were unplayable on the lowest settings like Blade & Sorcery. so sense ive been saving up a bit and its getting close to black friday im wondering if anyone has good vr upgrades, this has been challenging because i want a good performance boost without having to spend 500$, i was thinking about getting a rtx 2060 but figured i should ask here first, im aware of the 3000's series but probably wont have the money for it any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

My specs:
I know it isnt balanced 

Ryzen 7 3700x
rx580 8gb ddr5
G.skill 3200 DDR4
MSI B450 Tomahawk max

If you're buying in the US this is a good option

alternatively, if there are nvidia features you really want

if you could wait to see what Nvidia puts out for the mid range, like the RTX 3060 or whatever is coming, that might be ideal but if you need an upgrade now then the 2060 or 5600XT is a solid pick.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Might consider buying used to get maybe one tier higher. I think GPUs are excellent for buying used as they rarely break or degrade.
