    Looking to upgrade gpu on budget for Lightwave, suggestions?

    I know unless using octane a gpu upgrade wont benefit rendering, but Im wondering if it would speed up the vpr and layout view a little. My current Gpu is quite old now and only has 1gb memory. So ive been thinking about upgrading it to maybe 4 or 6gb. I cant really afford to lash out on an RTX card at £300-400 at this time, so looking for an improvement at around the £150-200 mark. I know I could possible get a good second hand one in this price range. I'm also looking for a card with dual dvi connection as I use 2 monitors and Ive heard that dvi is sharper than hdmi. (That may or may not be correct?) It could also possible help After fx on rendering out.
    Any suggestions?

    Most cards you would want are going to be more beneficial, compared to your now, for AE than LW. If you get an Nvidia card with a goodly amount of cuda cores, it would help AE immensely.
    That would mean an nvidia card. Based on your budget, a gtx would align to your needs.
    I dunno/am not learning about the AMD offerings.
