Linux Mint or Ubuntu - They're not bad once you get used to them. I'm in the same boat as a lot of users in this thread. I'd prefer to game on the macOS (hate Windows) but I refuse to use a slow-ass card like the RX460, will not buy GTX 9xx because of their age. I also need a mini ITX sized card, so there's another limitation. GTX 1060 would be perfect if nVidia weren't . . . you know . . .This is pretty disappointing state we are in. For me to upgrade my current cards to dual 980ti's would be unbelievably expensive at this point - if I can even find any brand new ones. I really need an upgrade though because my 3D app is geared to Nvidia iRay and I know Adobe eats loves Nvidia as well. Switching to Radeons only will give me a boost in FCPx but I use a lot of other apps. Going the eBay route opens you up to potential burned out cards from Bitcoin users. Feel like my days of using Hacks are slowly coming to an end and I can't imagine having to go back to Windows.
I think WWDC will reveal some new hardware with Vega vid cards so that's what I'm waiting for next & crossing fingers that there will be a mini ITX Vega with macOS support that's at least as fast as a GTX 1060
