Hi guys, I'm new to the forum, as I stated in the title, which gpu should I get? What are the major and minor differences between these 2 cards? I generally play games, my R9 280x Tri-X OC was good until last week, but it died :(

Thanks.

The RX570 Pulse has 4 more gigabytes of VRAM... it's in the title.

The nitro+ has a supplementary 6-pin power connector along with its 8-pin. The pulse only has one 8-pin.

The backplates also look different if you care about that.

So Nitro+ doesn't have something better than 8gb version? I mean, Will there be any fps difference?

The more VRAM you have, the better (usually). Recently, games have been more and more VRAM intensive. You can change and add more settings that affect VRAM usage with 8GB. If you run out of VRAM you will get crashes and other stuff until you lower the settings. There is an 8gb version of the nitro+: https://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-11266-09-20G-Radeon-Backplate-Graphics/dp/B071XNH5BC/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=570+nitro+&qid=1558279960&s=gateway&sr=8-2

Also, the cards are both made by Sapphire, just the nitro+ has a factory OC.

The problem is I can't afford Nitro+ 8gb for now.

All GPUs in this performance range have VRAM coolers, as they get hot. The fan blows air through the heatsink, cooling the GPU and other components, including the VRAM.

If it didn't have its VRAM cooled it would overheat.
