I think the 1070s and 1080s are the best value for money. These days, given
that it's I think it costs ~20% more, the 1080 is probably a bit better
value for money, but it's going to be a bit above $500, I think.

Also note that we're working on new GPU acceleration-related features that
will change the CPU-GPU balance in many use-cases, so if you are planning
to buy hardware, you might want to give the new code (in still CR) a try.
