so many good deals on 1070 recently

Indeed. Im finding it hard to order one after that under 300 MSI deal at Ebuyer a while ago though, this is getting closer.


​Yep....the £295 MSI means I can't bring myself to pay anymore than that. May just skip this generation.

I own this product so will give small review: overclocks well if thats what you are into, or if run stock or adjusted fan curves it can be as quiet as a kitten. Performance is excellent, I game at 2160p and the majority of the games I actually play (as I tend to buy Triple A games a couple years after they come out e.g Witcher 3 and GTA V I bought this month, and rocket league/cities skylines and indie games) I can run either maxed out or dropping around to a custom high-mix. 4K60fps! It exists! :{ And it has all that proprietary **** that people love (Side note: I do wish it were compatible with Free-sync as that was my upgrade path for my monitor and G-Sync is ridic expensive) like shadowplay or whatever thats called now, and ungimped performance in Nvidia titles for the most part! It fits in my shoebox sized case (Coolermaster Elite 130) very nicely without thermal issues. Overall it's great as I can see it lasting me a couple years with probably dropping settings whilst true 4K GPUs came out, so anyone that plays at 1080p should get some nice hiiiiigh framerates in most titles!

I was quite lucky and bought it last August whilst in the U.S for $360. Still a pretty decent price for around here, but maybe some shops will start a nice price war over 1070s who knows :)

Good price for sure. From what I know it's not the most popular though due to being a bit on the longer side and not the best looking. Still, inside a decent size case and if you (rightly) don't care about looks then it's a decent card.

These 1070s rarely seem to be under £350 except that odd £300 around New Year.

Great price. Anyone have any voucher codes for novatech?

That sub 300 ebuyer card was a mistake, you won't see these accurately priced sub 300 until there's something better on the horizon..

Only 30 less than this, it could happen! Im happy to wait anyway with my 970 and see what happens..

whaaa! I want it now! Waiting for new credit card so I can get £35 cashback. Wonder how long this deal will last?

Can anyone who has one comment on the noise levels of this? I was also looking at getting the Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Strix which has great reviews, but not much info on this Windforce card, how does it compare?

Thanks! :)

To be fair, Currys were selling one for £360 last week. With easily available 8% off vouchers it was near £330 as well.

Thank you Saxonstar! Great to hear what a current owner thinks. Yes I plan to overclock it to at least what the OC version is at or if possible to what the G1 gaming version is clocked at

No problem :) I think my overclock from the high-performance factory settings managed nearly 15% higher fps stable in 3DMark Firestrike & Timespy, and then burned in for stability on Afterburner. I've dialled it back a touch to where I was more comfortable with the noise but the cooler seems fine given the chip will reach it's limits before thermals become an issue for me and the 1070s are all the same chip so that's just a lottery :)

Hi can someone help me please , I have a Lenovo desktop with i7 4790 16gb 120sd 2TB and a GTX 750ti . As you can see it,s not a gaming rig the power supply is 300-400 watts. Could someone tell me what card I can use from the new generation. Also could someone tell me how differcult it is to fit. My gaming days were the late 80.s so have no idea, I don,t want to play the latest games ( too many keys and no joystick ) . I do read all of this threads but still haven,t learn,t so if someone could help me I would be very grateful . Thank you n advance

Fairly easy to fit, pop off the case, slot it in the PCI-E expansion and plug in the power supply to the side of the card. 400Watts should be enough depending on your make of power supply and the fact its powering a 750Ti, it should be fine.

400w is pushing it a bit depending on how efficient your psu is. Testing suggests 450w is minimum depending on the other components in your pc. Replacing your psu as well might be a good idea.

Yeah as you say it's a lottery, with a factory OC you're just guaranteed those clocks. The card I've currently got is the GTX 570 which I've overclocked using MSI Afterburner (or EVGA Precision X, can't remember now!) so this will be a solid upgrade regardless. I've ordered, so will find out soon I suppose! Thanks again :)

I have this exact model overclocked to 2ghz and at most draw 280 watts at the wall with an overclocked 2500k. Just make sure that your PSU has the pcie connectors required for it

I would recommend considering a PSU upgrade if you have a generic OEM one in the machine. Your problem will be that the 750ti you have only needs to be supplied the power from the slot it sits in. It does not use an extra power cable required from higher end cards like these, because potentially your power supply may not even have these cables.

Therefore you are likely limited to cards that run only on slot power. The fastest cards that only need slot power are the GTX1050 (check the model, some require an extra connector) and the RX 460. They are reasonable upgrades but not enormous on the 750ti what is now a fairly slow card anyway. About 30-40 percent faster or so.

If you are not a major gamer this will probably be acceptable. However if you are in a thread looking at a card that costs £340 and considering spending that, you should buy a new quality power supply for £60 or so, and then you can have any card you want that will fit in your case.

A PSU and an RX 480/GTX1060 6GB are true gaming cards for 1080p and with a decent PSU maybe £280 total.

I'm also sitting with the same processor and graphics card and looking to upgrade so glad I stumbled on this thread. I'm hoping I can get a 1060 6gb which should be a good upgrade to the 750ti. I have a 450w psu. Look into the 1060 if you would rather spend a bit less than the 1070 but still get good graphics. I'm also trying to buy a steam link so I can sit in the living room and play games with the new card on my big tv

Thats the thing for me. I'd like VR but ultimately my main use will be playing games on a 4k TV - so I've assumed that a 1070 is minimum either for 'OK' 4k gaming, or decent 1440p (which should look decent enough)

If you use TopCashback then it's technically "money off" because you get credit on the purchase. But you still pay the actual amount to the vendor when you make the purchase (£339.98)

Hope that helps :)

It means that if you go via the TopCashback website, you can get 3.45% cashback at this retailer. The amount they've quoted takes this into account.

Note that cashback isn't guaranteed, and you don't get it immediately (it's often a couple of months).

are these roughly your build? https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/qFwX3F it recommends atleast 333w id still go for 450w minimum, tomshardware has some pretty good psu guides and the corsair RM550X is what i have but it'll set you back another £80

Having upgraded from 970 to a 1070 on a 1080p/120Hz screen, I can't agree with that. The difference in GTAV was immediately obvious. Instead of 55 fps average with drops to 40 it would stay over 60 and always feel smooth, on higher settings than the 970 could manage. Also let me have a good experience with the badly optimized Dishonored 2. ARK felt immediately smoother too. Arkham Knight, again liquid smooth on full settings.

The OC version has slightly higher clocks than this. I.e it's very slightly faster out of the box. No, this does not have a backplate.

Thank you for taking the time for a great reply , yes I want one that just slips in . If I get one do you just unscrew it and slot the 1050 in. I,'m never going to be a gamer these days so I will do that and have no idea how to fix / upgrade etc. Thanks a lot !.
