Is this a joke? Your in every thread saying how much better 1070/1080's are. If that isn't telling people what to buy and not buy (subtly), then i don't know what is...

The RX 470 8GB is likely a superior choice to the RX 480 4GB...

It could very well look like that. Although, it doesn't leave enough room for custom cards.

I somewhat have similar feeling, and since RX 470 is Polaris 10...and we suppose that it overclocks well... That'd be pretty good

Definitely not. The difference in processing power can't be made up by amount of RAM and if previous cards are to go by adding extra RAM will barely make a difference. You only need to look at the 2GB and 4GB 680 to see that there wasn't much of a difference in performance and the 290's barely saw a difference between the 4GB and 8GB versions, which is why the extra 4GB RAM of the 390's can easily be ignored.

Disagreed... 4GB is no longer sufficient, not even at 1080p, if you want to play at max settings.

Prime example right here;

Depends entirely on the game. Witcher 3 for example uses only 1.5GB VRAM, GTA V uses more so it can't be generalised.

It's a choice really... Do you want to avoid memory size bottlenecks in all your games with a bit less overall performance, or do you want the additional graphical/compute performance with the risk of memory bottlenecks? It might be game dependent, but if a game today already causes bottlenecks on 4GB, what does that say about games one year from now?

As someone with an overclocked HD6850 with 1GB, my main issue is a memory size bottleneck. There's nothing more frustrating than knowing your GPU can handle a game, but because you chose a smaller memory size when buying it, you need to turn down settings for the memory overflow not to kill your performance... I have come to regret taking the advise of people saying that the GPU would be a bottleneck before games would use 2GB anyway. On the long term that turned out to be the complete opposite.

I would definitely not buy any GPU with anything less than 8GB for gaming nowadays... Especially if you plan to use it for more than two years. But it's my personal preference, and based on my personal experience. Others may think differently, and that's fine.

I have not had a game run poorly on my 2gb cards at 1080p. At least not for lack of VRAM. The VRAM is also used as a buffer by the GPU driver, so it will fill up somewhat more than the game explicitly requests.
