Fascia board question?

I have 1x8 fascia boards on my house currently, which almost all is rotted. I am doing my roof in a few weeks and wanted to replace the fascia before hand. I was looking at hardieplank, and its $20.44 per 12ft stick for 1x8 and only $9.19 per 12 ft stick for 1x6. I have about 2.5 inches of over lip on the soffit with the current 1x8 that is on there. If I put the 1x6 on I would only have 0.5in of lip, would that be enough, or should I pay the extra for the 1x8?

would be better to see it,but 1/2" overhang is often used past the soffit board with no problems
