    The store is scamming you, trying to sell a way over-powered (and over-priced, for that application) GPU. Or they are just dumb.

    The W7100 is equivalent to a GTX670, GTX960 or GTX1050

    You can get a GTX960 for about 50- on ebay. 

    The RTX2060 Super is almost ten times the price, and totally pointless for a CCTV monitoring system.

    Just be sure to have the appropriate drivers downloaded and ready before you start changing the card.

    And uninstall the W7100 drivers and shut the machine down. (Without it restarting).

    Swap the card, let it boot up and then install the new drivers.
