Lol, i'm not going to upgrade until like another year. I'm perfectly happy with my 380x and I would just rather wait until I feel that I need to upgrade.

Almost no difference as I expected. For 1080p no reason to go 8GB and 40$ more, imo
Yep, just what I was expecting.
I know people are going to say "but-but-but, the future!". By the time that games will require
(not simply allocate) more than 4GB of VRAM, I bet that we will be in another console generation and a 8GB 480 would be getting like 18 fps whereas a 4GB 480 will be getting around 11 in any given title in 1440p maxed.
I know AMD is hyping up VR but lets be real with ourselves, 99% of the people who are going to buy the 480 are using it for 1080p/60Hz gamimg which makes an 8GB frame buffer unnecessary.Edited by NuclearPeace - 6/30/16 at 10:42am
