Which option will be best for FS2020, 1 or 2 ?

The long term pick is the 14900k option. You can upgrade the gpu later in the year. you should get by with the 3070 for now in 1080p

I'd be going CPU before GPU with that config.

I’d be trying the Frame Generation mod before I spent any money on a CPU or let alone a 4series RTX

Option 3

AMD Ryzen 7 7800x3D 

If you are not looking to increase resolution as well you can keep the GPU you currently have.
