RX 460: 2GB VS 4GB

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Thanks everyone beforehand, and the question is the following: Is the 4GB RX 460 worth it?

 

Here in Spain, there's a 20€ difference between them (115 - 135€).

These are the XFX versions, the Sapphire 2GB (125€) and the MSI 4GB (139€) are also options.

Have you checked the 1050 & 1050 ti?  they are faster cards and should be price really closely.


For the Best builds and Price lists here is a world where many points of the price have been predefined already for your convenience!

The Xeon E3 1231 V3 IS BETTER Than the Core i5 4690K and a Significantly better value for the non-overclockers or value shoppers.

The OS is like a kind food, Try it before saying if you like it or don't.

The cheapest 1050 is 25€ more than the msi 4GB, also, I don't like Nvidia as a company.

Theoretically the 4Gb is a bit better, but in practice by the time you would really notice that the performance of the 2GB is lacking, you also probably want a higher tier GPU anyway. Would suggest a 470 then.

Then the 2 GB version or 4GB version? Stillt he 470 is a nice bump up in performance compared to 460.

Can't you afford the additional cost for the 470? At least get the 1050ti, you get quite a lot of performance over the 460.
