So i have this cheap budget setup
Ryzen 5 2400g
Gigabyte B450 Ds3h
2x4 8gb ram 2666 clocked to 2833
I thinking of buying rx 570 4gb or a16 gb ram
For this game should i buy the rx 570 or should i upgrade my ram to 2x8 16 gb ram 3000 - 3200 mhZ?

Cos i saw some articles saying that 8gb is not enough for this game thats why im getting confused on what to upgrade

Im fine playing 1080/900p at semi low to mid settings for this game

8 GB's is not enough for a lot of games these days. When you remember that some of that needs to be allocated for background processors, you'll realize that 8 GB's is chicken feed for applications as demanding as video games. I wouldn't be surprised if Forza Horizon 4 swallows it all whole and you start getting error messages saying you are running out of memory. Hell why not, others get the same message even in the least demanding games. As a general rule, when a game says 8 gigs is the minimum, just think 16 instead, because your operating system will automatically allocate half of it for other processes that may need it just as much if not more than your game, so its not truly 8 gbs at all.

If you can I would return it. I dont know how much you paid or what your budget is, but a 1650 Super offers a better investment. Its slightly more powerful then a RX 580 and is around the 140-1650 USD mark

I would just get two 8 gb sticks and be done with it. If you have more than two slots, make sure you store them on alternate slots (don't store them right next to each other), otherwise your operating system will still read it as a single channel. You want it read as dual channel memory to actually get better performance.
