I've read that this card is overkill at 8gb because by the time it fully utilizes the 8gb it won't be powerful enough to matter anyway. I was thinking between the two. Isn't it $40 difference, or $60 before MIR?
Source? And there was another deal where it was $169 after MIR. $199 - $20 MIR - $10 from a coupon code.

I dunno much about graphics cards, just thought 8 GB was better.

I jumped in the car and drove over to CC, then realized they open at 10am....
LOL!!!!!! Co-workers are looking at me with concern now.

Will try to slip out of the office when nobody is looking.

That is correct. The 4GB RX570 is a very nice mid-range gaming card and the 8GB doesn't really benefit from the extra memory. You can easily get 50+ FPS on high/ultra settings at 1080p in almost every AAA game.

What price do people re-sell the games for? If you can't post here, please PM me. If it ends up worth it, I'll pick up the card as well, then sell the keys.

Forget how much, details on HOW to sell would be useful. Looks like a convoluted process of activating against the hardware on amdrewards, then activating against STEAM/UPlay.

Edit:
The Division is UPlay
RE2 and DmC is Steam

@Slashon So it's not straight forward then. Details on "how" would definitely help if anyone who has done it can pipe in and enlighten us. I'm still interested in knowing avg price too.

Can this play Netflix at 4K? And will it work with an old school BIOS? I was looking at this on Amazon a while ago and they mentioned UEFI only.

Performance difference btwn this and the 8gb version.

TL Dr = 1-2 fps less for the 4gb, but some games 5-10 fps less.

Really game dependent tdh, but rather be safe than sorry and get the 8gb.

Better not risk it. I had a H61 mobo and had to do a bios flash to the latest version to get the 579 to Work.

I had quoted someone else but I guess when they deleted their comment, it deleted my quoted one lol
Anyway, all you have to do is install the card, go to the AMD Rewards site, sign up and get your equipment verified, then when you receive the money (via eTransfer or PayPal) they will give you their account information so you can link the codes to their account. I had a good person here on RFD do this for me and that's how I got Division 2. Not too difficult.

Quick update for anyone who ordered and got an email that it was 'Backordered', I just got an email that they have already shipped out my card, so seems like all is well on that front!
