I can't decide what GPU to buy.

Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce Extreme Edition
3584 CUDA cores / 1746 MHz
12.5 TFlops

AMD RX Vega 64
4096 Stream Processors / 1546 MHz
12.6 TFlops

Which one is faster for BOINC crunching?
____________
MSI X370 Gaming Plus
AMD Ryzen 7 1700, 8 core / 16 thread 3.9 GHz
AMD Radeon Sapphire RX 480 4GB Nitro+
Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio
2x8 GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB 3200 MHz

If it were me I'd get the 1080Ti as it's been around longer and is better supported, it also a couple hundred seconds faster at Einstein, but that doesn't mean it's faster at every project.

Depends what BOINC project you want to crunch. No one video card can do everything on all projects. For MW, the AMD card is the better alternative over NVIDIA card (1080) since NVIDIA cards DP abilities are inferior to AMD. Go here http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/gpu_list.php for a general comparison of video cards performance for MW@home.

The 1080Ti will cost you a lot less to run than a Vega64.
