Is the 8 GB version of the RX 480 worth it?

The know the high resolution texture package for Shadows of Mordor recommends 6GB.

I hate to buy any new AMD GPU with Vega coming out soon-ish.

I think the 8GB is better for higher resolution (1440p or more). I wanted to wait for Vega but I needed a GPU now...So...

Great deal if you don't keep your GPU long but be aware this is not that great of a PCB or cooler.

MSI/ASUS/Gigabyte have better resale than Sapphire or XFX because of transferable warranty.

Too bad it took AMD 6 months to get these cards down to reasonable prices. Farms don't want them anymore I guess.
Would not touch the 4G version if you plan to keep it longer though or run mostly the newest "AAA" 4G+ targeted games.
