Which GPU to buy for 3D art? RTX 2060 vs Vega 64 LC

Can get them for the same price - 400EUR

I also do some light gaming, but only on low resolution (2560x1080), and I know both cards can handle that.

I mainly work in Blender and Substance Painter. I don't really do vray rendering, but I might have to use Iray in Substance Painter. But I know vega doesn't support it. Ofc I can just use Blender cycles/EVEE, Luxrender or Marmoset Toolbag instead.

Oh yea and I'm planning on putting a NZXT G12 on the RTX 2060 if I choose that. But I'm not sure it's on the support list.

I don't really do work in Substance Designer, but I heard it just got support for RTX cards, Allegorithmic may add the same to SP in the future.

Should I give up 2Gb of Vram for iray?

 

System spec:

FSP Arurum 1000 PSU

MSI B450M Mortar Titanium

16GB 3000Mhz

Ryzen 5 2600

GTX Titan Black

 

Thank you in advance!

No need for a Vega you can get the 2060 and it will do just fine for your needs.  Also I recommend you overclock your CPU, and your RAM is fine although for what you want to do if its hard core then 32GB would make sense.  Just make sure your using a SSD my friend.

RTX 2060.

A lot of GPU renderers (e.g. Octane, Redshift) do not support AMD gpus.
