Hi. I want to build a workstation. I do numerical simulations on parallel.

Until now I have bought the cpu, and the motherboard. I would like to buy a gpu that supports cuda, in case I want to do some cuda programming.

This is what I have bought until now:
-CPU: Ryzen 7 1700x.
-MOBO: Motherboard Asrock Fatal1ty B450 Gaming K4 Amd Am4 Logg

I would like to buy a cheap graphics card that supports CUDA. I was thinking in the EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570. I think it supports CUDA. Would it be appropriate for the my mobo and cpu?

I also would like to ask which RAM should I buy for my system, which ssd, and which power supply and case would you recommend.

Thanks in advance.

Heres my take.

Or alternatively, you can get an even better USED gpu.

Used GTX 980 for $140. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NVIDIA-EVGA-GeForce-GTX-980-SC-GAMING-ACX-2-0-4GB-4G-256-bit-GDDR5-Video-Card/153614154152?epid=220561868&hash=item23c41df9a8:g:Rh8AAOSwAwJdXuDA&LH_BIN=1&LH_ItemCondition=3000|2500
980 performs better than a 1060 3gb and costs less.

Hi. Thank you both for your replies. I would like to invest as much as U$S500 to buy the gpu, the ram, the ssd, the case, the power supply and the display device. I was thinking in buying an old gpu, because I won't use the workstation to play videogames. I need a gpu and I would like one that supports CUDA. There are second hand gpus at a very low price on ebay, and that was the option I was looking at.

You think that the nvidia geforce gt 710 bould be a better option than the 570?
