Hey

 

Yoel, why not (the 8GB).

 

About a video card - 

GTX 1660 SUPER.

Why exactly this card and no more advanced one that supports ray tracing and other vegetables in the slightly more expensive series?

(Sitting with a similar system and considering upgrading a card)

Because the rest of the vegetables also need a suitable garden ...

What's more, the higher price does not suit everyone.

Budget is the main question, but one should also understand that there are games that without a more powerful processor will stutter no matter what video card you attach to the system (there are also games that barely load the CPU and enjoy a more significant improvement).
By and large the more you spend the more you will get, but there are diminishing returns here.
