Is there the option of buying more ram in say a month an option or it something you will have to live with for quite some time? 

 

System ram or Video ram? I assumed system.

What the f*ck are you talking about?

 

OT: get 8GB RAM and the 270x if you really want to, the performance difference is minimal.

You also could save up and get 8GB with a 280X.

I think they mean system memory, not video memory. I don't think an 8 GB 270X exists.

 

I'd go with the 270x, slightly slower than a 280 but 8 gigs of memory is needed nowadays.

Not VRAM 

 

Get 4gb of Ram and the R9 280. 4gb is enough to play most games -- so long as youre not doing anything else in the background.

I wouldn't go below 8GB of RAM.

 

So 270X it is.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

You can always get more RAM, you know. Unless that isn't going to be an option?

Gaming on 4gb of Ram is totally doable -- I've been doing it for the past month as I've been too lazy to deal with RMA'g one of my 4gb modules. Plus it's much easier (cheaper) to add a second 4gb stick then replacing a gpu.

Why not? 

I was playing CoD AW with 4gb of ram on my system no problem.

R9 280 all the way. Why? Because adding more system ram later is quick, easy, and cheap, Replacing your GPU? Expensive, a hassle to sell old one, etc. You should get the better GPU now, so you won't have to upgrade at a later date. If the time comes you want to add another 4GB of ram for games, or even more ram, it should be an extremely quick and easy edition to your system, and shouldn't cost much, even if you don't have the cash now!

I would ask @Faceman, he seems to know a lot about bottlenecks and which CPUs do and don't. I wouldn't be able to tell you for certain personally.
