GIGABYTE RX 580 4GB vs MSI RX 580 GAMING X 4G

I am planning to buy Rx 580 card for 1080p gaming as suggested by tomshardware here http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gpus,4380.html

I landed on MSI Radeon RX 580 4GB GAMING X card. But same Rx 580 card from gigabyte is 24 dollars less than msi gaming x card.

MSI Radeon RX 580 GAMING X 4GB : 214$

GIGABYTE AMD Radeon RX 580 Gaming 4GB : 188$

Which to choose ?

    You mean to say that buying Gigabyte 8GB card is more worth than buying 4GB MSI Gaming X card.

    Get the Gigabyte. It doesn't make much of a difference if they're the same chipset (RX580).
    Also, some simple math. 8GB VRAM > 4GB VRAM.
    MSI GAMING X series are expensive, they look good but personal opinion, they should be cheaper.
    For the price of MSI's 4GB RX580, you could get twice the VRAM that it has.

    Well, conclusion. Pick any of these two ( or three ) choices won't affect much. GLHF!

  5. That backplate really does wonders for the looks of the gpu since that's all you basically see anyways.

    It's a Rx580. Performance wise they are all similar, either top line like the Gaming X or FTW or mediocre like the Armor 2 or SC. The bigger differences being price and overclocking. If you can get an 8Gb for roughly the same price as a 4Gb, it's well worth the difference. Don't know anyone who doesn't like a buy-1 get 1 free, so that kinda also applies to buy 4Gb, get 4Gb free.
