Hi guys,

I have dilemma what to buy (
My current computer:
(MacBook Pro Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013 NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB / Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB, TB1) I'm planning to update to a new one (with TB3) in a year or two.

Requirement:
Speed up previewing and rendering timelapse videos in Adobe AE (Mac OS)

I'm looking at two options:
AkiTio Node + GeForce GTX1050 Ti 4GB = $440
or
AkiTio Node Pro + GeForce GTX1060 6GB = $715

Any suggestions on it?

I have yet to list my system & eGPU hardware or link a build guide in my signature. I will do so soon to give context to my posts.

Choosing between the 1050ti and 1060 are all dependent on what you plan on using it on. 
If you are going to play games, the 1060 is definitely worth it. If you are just going to drive some monitors for office work and text editing the 1050ti is more than enough. That said, rendering times will be better on the 1060, wether it is worth the price tag or not is all up to you.
Personally I would have bought the 1060, better performance and more future proof!

>for office work and text editing

GeForce GT 650M can handle it 
I'm not sure if on TB1 1050 and 1060 make any difference
