Need a good GPU suggestion!!!


Building a pc for architectural rendering (vray) and modelling (Revit, Rhino 3D), but also want it to double as a gaming pc.


Current parts:

CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 2700X

Ram - Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16)

Motherboard - Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro Motherboard

PSU - Corsair 850W


Was thinking possibly a Gigabyte AORUS Radeon RX 580 8GB for my gpu

Any other suggestions within the $600 range??  (Can suggest some other changes too haven't bought cpu, ram, motherboard yet)


Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Do NOT under any circumstances pay $600 for an RX580!!! 


In that price range you can get an Asus Strix Vega 56.  The Strix and the Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 56 consistently out perform all other Vega 56 cards.
