You've got some extra money to spare, why not go for the 8 GB model instead of the 4 GB model. It's only $25 more expensive. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3JdFf7/msi-radeon-rx-570-8gb-armor-oc-video-card-rx-570-armor-8g-oc

Good point! Would you say it would make a big difference? New to PC everything just curious haha

Well in the long run yes. Right now you'd probably only see substantial differences in some demanding games.

Would you suggest the 8GB GPU or do you think the 3GB GPU that Chrisgorilatz is suggesting is a good choice?

Neither of those would be that good (1060 3GB is about the same performance as the 570 and the 8GB version isn’t too dissimilar).

I’d probably step up a tier and get this

Thank you! Do you think that the 4 GB gpu that you suggested is better than the 3 GB gpu that was suggested by Chrisgorlitz? And do you think that the 16 GB Ram as opposed to 8 GB is worth the extra $20? Thank you!

8gb is worth over 4gb and 16gb is definitely worth it

Thank you! Question: Which Video Card would be better, the one you suggested or the *PowerColor - Radeon RX 570 4 GB RED DRAGON Video Card? Also, total newbie question, does the 3 GB vs 4 GB make much of a difference for a video card?
