New RX 580 or old GTX 980Ti

I've recenly bought Asus's RX 580 4GB, but I'm still sceptical about AMD's GPUs. Also I am too poor to afford one of their more expensive models, so I've started looking on second-hand market. There is 980 Ti (looks like founder's edition) in the price of ~$170, but it's warranty ended in 2017 and it was probably lying around for two years (as I understand auction description). I am hesitant, because it would offer considerable increase in efficiency, but it's probably 4 yo GPU, to put it in late 2019 build... idk. What do you guys think? Is it worth it?

I have to decide quickly, cuz I can return 580 to the store for 2 days from now on.

The 980 Ti is faster than the RX 580. I'd contact the owner of the 980 Ti to see if they can test it out for you.

I misunderstood seller, it has been actually used continuously since 2017, when it was bought. I think I will try and bid it, but idk if to return 580 already.

Return it and get a 8gb version of the rx 580.

I'd love to, but it's considerably more expensive, especially given that 4GB was discounted to the price of RX 570 (which I later discovered is almost the same card as 580).

Id stay with what you have then.
