Couple years ago my son and I built first his first gaming pc with the mindset that we were going to upgrade. Went with pc mate b250, intel g4560, and 8gb ram. Well it's time to upgrade. Add Gpu, upgrade CPU, or.......? $350 budget

Why not go with a cheaper 570 like the Powercolor?

Most likely has 4gb of ram, but I’ll look I to it.

Not like that'll make any difference in performance. The 570 itself is too slow to have a performance increase in 8gb compared to 4gb. Even if you need those max textures for futureproofing, it won't make the game look better if everything else is turned to low.
