Hello,
I'm considering building a 700$ AMD PC Build
700$ spent in Switzerland is like 500$ in the US.

So I'm pairing Ryzen 5 2400g with a MSI
Radeon RX 570.
But I have two GPU models at almost the same price
I would like to know which one do you recommend;
- MSI RX 570 Armor OC 4GB VRAM 1168 MHz 7 GHz ($158)

- MSI Radeon RX 570 Armor 8GB VRAM 1168 MHz 1.75 GHz ($161)

(they might seem overpriced but remember this is in Switzerland)

The first GPU have the 'OC' in the name, does that mean that the second one is not overclockable?
I would like a PC Build that will stay relevant for me for couple years.

partially right.
they are BOTH factory overclocked to the same speeds already
1168 MHz-core 7 GHz-memory
normal boost clock 1244
OC'd boost clock 1268 this is on both cards
the 4GB uses the OC feature as a selling point
the 8Gb does not.
both are the same speed out of the box, they should theoretically User (you manually)overclock the same but the extra RAM makes the difference

the OC signifies that the factory has already overclocked the unit, note they are running at the same speed both overclocked already.
get the one with the most onboard RAM period. the extra RAM will make the card relevant for longer.
double the RAM for 3 bucks, deal of the century.

Thanks a lot for your response. So if I buy the 8gb VRAM one, I can OC it to reach the same Video memory clock as the already overclocked one?
