New build- Best GPU for running rhino 6? ($400-600)

I’m an architecture student building a pc for running rhino 6 specifically (as well as the adobe suite). My current computer has an i7-6700 CPU and a Nvidia Quadro M2000 gpu- the computer isn’t quite strong enough for what I want (consistently crashes with files above 50MB, can’t always handle the geometry that I throw at it). My build will feature a Ryzen 9-3900x CPU and I’m wondering what GPU makes sense with this. I’m a novice and just looking for a rough “best fit” for my budget. My build below (if it helps answer my question):

I’d just upgrade your current system. The 6700 is still a good CPU when overclocked. Buy a used GTX 1080.

You also didn’t say how much memory your current system has. You could probably upgrade it to at least 32 GB. Also make sure all your video drivers are the latest.

32GB for the current system- worth jumping up to 64?

Intel’s new 10 nm chips are out soon. DDR 5 and PCIE 5.0 are right around the corner. Then there’s Ryzen 7 nm+ and 5 nm. We’re also about to experience a very serious global recession.

Monitor your RAM usage during intensive work loads. Only buy more if you need it.
