This may be a strange question to ask but I'll go ahead.

I have these 2 systems to chose from:

1st one is
Cpu g4560
Gpu 1050
Ram 2x4gb

2nd one is
Cpu g4560
Rx 580
Ram 2x4gb

I want your opinion on this one, bcz I know the second build has a better GPU, but know the bottleneck is gonna hit. And I won't be having money in the near future to upgrade so whats the best build? Which will provide the better gaming performance?

If the faster GPU build is more expensive and above your budget, then obviously the slower 1050 build is what you want. You can upgrade the gfx card later at your convenience, if the PSU allows. Besides, using a 8GB gfx card like the RX 580 with a system that only has 8GB system memory, might eat up the RAM you need for other things. 16GB system RAM is recommended for cards that have that much VRAM.

Keep in mind, this is only a judgement call based on the very limited info you provided. The more info you provide, the more accurate our opinion will be.

I have the money for both builds, and the rx580 is a 4GB version. I don't aim for AAA titles, just games like: Fortnite, Doom, Terra, Warframe, The new call of duty thats going to come out, maybe AC, and other random games. I've been in a friend's home before and he had the first setup and couldn't run the games I wanted to play at 60+fps, so thats why I am asking. The RX is at big discount in my country right now and that's why I want to buy it cuz everything else is pretty expensive..

If 60 fps is your goal and you don't want to play at reduced settings to achieve it, then the RX 580 build is the answer. Especially if you have the budget for both.
Again... I have no idea of the rest of these two systems, but I'll leave that up to you to decide on their other aspects that may be important to you.

If the RX 580 is only a 4GB card, you can live nicely with 8GB system RAM.
 
If only you could go AMD then you would have an upgrade path, which is why I asked about budget

Rx580 = $170
1050ti = $150
