Default RX 580 4GB

Hey guys,

So I just finished building a new computer which I intend to use only for maybe 6 months. The last piece was the graphic card, and I was originally considering buying a used 8GB RX 580 off eBay for around $170. I got cold feet on about getting a used card, and saw this sale on Newegg, and decided to go with the Sapphire Nitro+ Rx 580 4GB for $199:


I'm going to use this system mainly for playing WoW, maybe BFV, and some eSports games. I am tentatively considering upgrading to 1440p in the future but not till next year. I am wondering whether I should stick with this card, or try to catch a 8gb variant on sale and return this one. Any thoughts would be appreciated, thank you.

If you're only using this machine for 6 months then a 1440p monitor next year really isn't relevant. The card will be fine for 1080p.
