Data point: my RTX 570 only gets 170 nps, I got it for $130 plus tax, but I will try to sell the games for about $50

You should define that question better. Power consumption and heat play a role in choice. So what's best for a desktop/workstation not the same as for a laptop/workstation << I have "workstation" there because whether desktop or laptop, you are presumably talking about a device more powerful that the typical home computer.

If you are a Leela Zero user, then a RTX series card from Nvidia is probably a good idea as Leela supports the tensor cores.
Leela Chess Zero also supports tensor cores (in case you are interested in chess as well).

So in case your power supply can handle it:

NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2060 (320e to 380e price range)
NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2070 (500e to 600e price range)
NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2080 (650e to 850 price range)
NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2080 Ti (1200e plus price range)

Nvidia 1060 is 200 n/s, you could have gotten it for $170, maybe after AMD cards come out you can
