Well, I'm very dubious of some choices about the rest of the system. Because of that, I'm not sure if you're going for a workstation build or a high-end gaming build. Therefore I can't really make any suggestions about a graphics card.

 

What is the build going to be used for? And what sort of budget do you have?

PSU seems to be an overkill. None of those components will draw that much power, even taking into account those graphic cards you are looking into.

 

64GB of ram is a lot, but I guess that depends on what you are going to be using the system for.

I've wondered, but I'm not sure. I've done a bit more looking, and while the link destination might be legit, it could easily be otherwise. I've removed the link for now.

Before you decide on a graphics card you really need to know the resolution of the monitor you intend to use , and you are also going to have to mention what you want to do with the pc. Gaming? Email? Movie production?
The PSU is probably the last thing to decide on since you only need to provide power for the hardware you bought and not go for the largest capacity you can afford

We literally have the same specs, and I'm rocking a GTX 1070. Works well and plays Forza 60fps 4k (my fave game). Battlegrounds, overwatch, etc all run buttery smooth.

Yea you arent going to get a good videocard for $100.  Go back to 16GB ram, 750w PSU 80+, then put the extra money on a videocard, if your gaming then videocard is practically the most important thing.

750 W? More like 570 (or, to fit with real sizes, 550 W). Very few systems will need more than that, and the vast majority of those that do will be well served with 650 W.

You're still not going to get much for under $350.  The best you'll find is a 1050 Ti. But that's probably still good enough for gaming at 1080p, especially if not at maximum quality.
