What GPU should I look to getting

Hello noob here and learning tons everyday. I am in processes of building a machine for my business and have hit a block of too much info.  Here is the build so far.  I know some parts may seem not best choice but budget took over. 

ASUS 970 Pro Gaming Aura

AMD FX8320 8-core 3.5GHz overclocked to a stable 4.4GHz

Nvidia GeForce GT730

 4x 4GB PNY DDR3 PC3-12800 RAM

Antec 550watt PSU

CPU cooled by a 3x120mm radiator

All inside a Corsair Obsidian 800D full case

OS by itself on a 500GB WD HDD

Software running on a 5TB Seagate HDD

Scratch disk is a 500GB WD HDD

I have a dedicated computer for storing my content and bring files over as needed for short term use.  I plan on maxing out the ram with another 16GB I'm sure there is a better option that what I am having now on that.  Also wanting to go-to SSD's as I can for it's speed. Kinda leaves the GPU... Do I go crossfire/sli? Or go big as I can with a single GPU?  Way to many questions.  No gaming.  I use tons of ADOBE and tons of Autodesk.   Video/photo editing, mild 3D rendering, and some GIS type work. My optimum hopes are higher than my budget and I know I am asking a lot but ideas are helpful tons.  Somewhere $200 to $300 range I even been looking at used GPU's not sure how I feel about that tho. Thanks for input!

You probably want the cheapest used GPU you can find with the most amount of VRAM

Adobe what? Photoshop or Premiere? If just Premiere are you unable to switch to Sony vegas for long term savings or do you need something from premiere?

Do you use your PC to make money?

Also your case and CPU cooling costs more than your CPU and current GPU...what happened there?

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Used GTX 980 Ti should be a good option.
