AGREED. Import taxes make me upset here. What’s worse is our shipping companies charge obscene brokerage (imagine taxes then another~$50 to carry the item over the border... on top of shipping cost as well )In my personal opinion: Radeon 5700 or XT version it's not worth to buy
You can buy it if you want few more FPS in games, but few games, Vega 64 is still the best choice.
Cheaper option Vega 56, and ... better option for someone who work a lot with graphics Radeon VII
(but only if you earn money with your graphic work)
I will don't talk about price in my place because (France) prices are different than
best luckiest people on the world "US" (who always have best price without holy "f-word" tax-es of import
and stupid European boosted prices ) I'm sorry I'm always mad on that subject...
So if you don't care so much about few more fps in gaming,
Vega 64 is the best choice - of course "in my personal opinion and experience"
PS: I don't know from where izo1 is, but 150-200usd it can be magic price,
but maybe for 240-250$ why not (and 295-320$ for new one, or something like that)
In every way, it's worth to check it everywhere and take time for best choice for your usage
I think this is the card I have to go with from a price perspective. My income is based on a workflow that is FCPX ProRes 4444 / H264 export time dependent. In terms of games, I fire up the occasional NHL ‘19 on my Xbox One X and maybe GTA from time to time so gaming isn’t a priority on this machine. It’s nice that at 1080p I’ll climb over 60fps in almost all cases it seems- so I’m good with it.

So from what he states: I guess I’m sticking to an iMac Pro SMBIOS? (I gotta check the @kgp guide again after I type this) lol
EDIT: Just read it, looks like iMacPro 1,1 is the sauce
