All of the above for €800.
Sapphire Pulse RX 560 4GB +€120
Sapphire Pulse RX 580 8GB +€160

I purchased this Mac Pro in 2017 from a professional refurbishing company and have upgraded it further myself since then. macOS and firmware have been updated to the latest versions which allow booting from blazingly fast NVMe drives. It also runs Windows 10 perfectly, if that's your thing.
Note the base config on offer for €800 will not run Mojave as the GT120 is not Metal-compatible. You can downgrade to High Sierra, take one of the optional RX560/580 cards, or add your own Metal-supported card.
This is a great machine for Final Cut Pro X (especially with the RX580), photo editing, and any software that can make use of the 12 threads available on the CPU. It also comes with two OWC SSD sleds as well as the original HDD sleds.
Some minor cosmetic scratches (see pics).
