wrong picture on the post, the RX580 is the armor edition, the cooling on these are not that great runs pretty hot from my experience. but definitely a great price for a RX580

Would this card be good for video editing in 4k? Thinking of pairing this with a R7 2700x with at least 16gb ram. I won't be gaming much.

Worse than XFX xxx version in another post. Same tax but many places do not have micro center...

GTX 1070 + is recommended for video editing. Check the software as well, some may not perform well with AMD gpu.

8GB of VRAM seems like massive overkill for this level of GPU.

Yes this is fine. I would put as much money as possible into the cpu and ram before dropping it on the graphics card.

If I am not mistaken the mk2 version was this price 6 months ago from best buy. "They're coming down" lol. Remember this is AR at microcenter which means few sell at this price.

For those who don't pay attention to details and think this is a different one.... this is "not" the msi 8gb armor mk2 one. The mk2 one has a lot better reviews and is the one I am trying to sell (unopened) because of what vapour said, a program I am considering using fir video editing has issues with amd ones at this point and plus I just thought I'd rather have the nvidia anyway.

Both the rx 580 and gtx 1060 are easily good enough for 4k video editing, as long as the program is not poorly set up.

And btw.... you'll get conflicting opinions on about everything. I saw where someone asked whether nvidia or amd is better for premiere pro and seriously one answer would be "you definitely want amd" and another would be "nvidia is definitely the one to get". haha.

Also, I saw on the videostudio forums where people said (this was for a past version, so who knows if it's still the same) that it was poorly set up to use ANY gpu.
