Hi ab_lumion, you will benefit only marginally from having 2 GPUs for Lumion, so my advice is to get the most powerful single-GPU card with the most RAM that you can afford.

I have a GTX 570 and it works very well with Lumion. I regularly work on Sketchup models over 80 Mb in size. My Lumion projects often contain hundreds of plants, lights etc. No problems.

Very good value for money. Check out this link:

The new generation of processor, named "Ivy Bridge," is the first to be made with a 3-D structure, which allows the chips to process information faster.
So wait a couple days and get an Ivy Bridge Processor  :D :-D ;)

cpu - amd bulldozer fx 8120 8 core
gpu - zotac gtx 580 3gb
ram - 16 gb
win7 x 64
no problems yet with lumion. and my current sketchup model is over 1 gig( divided into seperate files about 100 to 200 mb each otherwise sketchup dies). it slows lumion down a bit but it runs .
