Hi, I'm looking into getting a a gaming laptop on a budget, trying to stay under 800.00. Found this one that seemed almost perfect:ASUS TUF Gaming Laptop FX504 15.6” Full HD IPS-Level, 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8300H (up to 3.9GHz), GeForce GTX 1050, 8GB DDR4 2666MHz, 256GB M.2 SSD, Gigabit WiFi, Windows 10 - FX504GD-NH51
The only concern I had was the graphics card was 2GB vs. many of the other I looked at were 4 GB. The 4GB had 1 TB HDD, which I know is not as good as SDD. If I get both SDD and the 4GB the price increases a lot. Thoughts? What are the most important factors? I plan to play rpg's and MMORPG like elder scrolls and such.

Thanks, yes both of those are within budget but have HDD storage as opposed to SSD. I was told SSD is superior. Is it better to 4 GB graphics card with HDD or is a 2gb graphics card with SSD a better deal in terms of performance.
