hi guys, I have narrowed down my options to two models that fit my budget. one is the ASUS FX553VD-FY505 with 2gb 1050 and a 256gb SSD and the other one is the DELL Inspiron 7567 with the same specs but a 4gb 1050 and a 1tb HDD instead of the SSD.

I mostly play rpgs and strategy games so I am not gonna play games like BF1 or other high graphic demanding FPS games but I do want to play Total War games with a smooth and good experience. so my question here is, does a 4gb 1050 really make a lot of difference? or should I go for the SSD choice instead of the HDD for a smoother experience? If it really makes a difference I might go for the DELL to buy an SSD later but my budget is quite tight at the moment and probably in the near future as well. what do you think of these two choices?

Imo buy the dell and upgrade the hdd to an ssd later on. Maybe see if there are 2 memory slots you may be able to have an hdd and ssd in the dell. The 4GB 1050 will be way better than then 2gb and if gaming is your main focus you want the best cpu/gpu combo you can get for the budget.

Also the 1050 with 4GB will be more future proofed, ssd's while nice aren't necessary you'll just notice faster load times.
