Throw in another what, 50 quids? and I can buy an Xbox one AND a PS4

And combined they would still be less powerful than this card.

Just had a quick look and the prices seem to be coming down slightly for the 1070's which is good, since we are getting absolutely shafted

Near £400 for a card that isn't even the flagship is extortionate. Trouble is, nvidia are so far ahead of AMD they can get away with it.

They were announced at $379. $379 = £288, plus VAT, = £345. Whatever gave you the impression they'd be under £300?

Last gen prices maybe? 970 was £260 at launch, in fact I got an EVGA SC 970 with Far Cry 4 for £260. I'd expect a small bump in prices for the extra ram, but most of this price difference is because nvidia have no competition.

Good price for sure, I paid £388 for the gamerock a month ago. I dont know why they have put the base and boost so low though.

Shafted is strong, but yeah, based on $379RRP, £359 is pretty much spot on

Is it worth paying more for one with a higher preset clock speed (this one is 1506Mhz vs - for example the £389 Palit Super JetStream at 1632Mhz (OverClockers )?

Or would it be better to go for the cheaper one and just overclock it yourself (I'm a complete N00b regarding overclocking...)

At what point has NVIDIA ever marketed their top end graphics cards as budget cards?

Get the 1050, 1060 3gb, or the 1060 6gb if you want a cheaper card. Or go for the AMD 470.

Those are the value buys atm, of course, the only card in stock, at normal prices, is the 1060 6gb. The 1050/1060 3gb are not released yet (sept and oct) and the 470 is really far above the price point it was intended at.

470 stock going for 170, 470 AIB 190-210...
480 has zero stock for the 4GB model, cheapest model is around 228. AIBs upwards of 250.

So much for a 480 for under 200.

1060 is edging down to 228 AIB. Some really good values there.

Crazy prices.

These cards over clock differently due to GPU boost, they are simpler in a way to do a basic 'overclock'. You should look for a specific reviews of the card/s you are looking at that include how well the cards over clock.

Why should it be 300 max, when it is equivalent of a last geb £800~1000 card?

Dont get me wrong it would be great if y hit that price anytime soon.

Nvidia don't need to worry about competition, even the newer AMD cards seem to be having problems. Self Build gamers are often willing to spend whatever to build a FUTURE PROOF PC which is outdated and not as powerful 12 months later. I am thinking about upgrading my Commodore 64 to an Amiga!

How is it extortionate when the market has set the price not them and the 1070 is better than £800 to 1000 card from the previous generation?

Why be butthurt over getting ripped off :P

720p isn't that bad, it's not ideal but if you're actually playing games and not getting spitroasted by Nvidia to waste money just to gloat at a minor difference then you shouldn't really care too much about graphics. Please tell me you're not the kind of person that plays all the latest big hits from ubisoft, EA, ActiBlizz and other companies just for gfx whoring. I can max all the games out at the moment on my rig at the moment too but my brother has a radeon 270 and doesn't even need more since it runs most games he plays (league of legends, overwatch, path of exile etc.) perfectly fine and there's not really that many great games out recently that require beast cards or play that much better anyway. You can look at side by sides of metal gear solid V and see how few differences the extra few thousand spent on a master rig does for you. Mods for stuff like skyrim always help though.

Price should always be relative (or at least somewhat) to the better experience you get but sadly the prices of PC components are outstripping the benefits considering most games are basically console ports with a few effects just tacked on top or even just a resolution improvement. You end up with people paying thousands to get the same textures and character models basically rendered with an effect or two and a few more polygons acting like it's what makes the game. PC gaming is still best of course but truth be told, it's past the point where it's worth bragging about the minor differences and widening gap in cost to achieve it.

Well... first of all, welcome to the world of PC hardware!

Now, just to explain a little bit... just because the name ends in "70" doesn't mean that the card will have an identical price to the last "70" card. In fact, it's quite normal for "70" cards to have a different price to its predecessor! The 670 and 770 both launched at $400, with the 570 launching at $350 and the 970 sticking out somewhat at a very cheap $300. So you can see that there's a large range of prices for previous xx70 cards - and that the $380 GTX 1070 fits perfectly well into the previously-established xx70 price range (although to be fair, I can't see a 1070 below $386 right now!).

If you take a few seconds to think about it, with variable research costs, supply costs, material costs and currency values, it would be almost impossible for a tech company to set a price for a pre-development GPU. They won't know how best to price it until near the end of development - although market forces will play a part too, of course!

And, naturally, this applies equally to AMD as well - just look at the price differences between the 280/380/480, for example.

The problem is that these cards are priced and purchased in US dollars. The 970 was launched in Sept 2014 when the exchange rate was about $1.60 to the pound. If it was current rates, about $1.30 to the £, then you would have had to pay £320 instead of £260. Add in the extra RAM and £360 doesn't look bad at the current exchange rate. It's only about 10% more in $ prices.

Was that the link you intended? Or is there some confusion over the use of the word "budget"?

If these launched around the £350 mark (like they should have done) Nvidia would have made waves in the EU/UK

I paid £400 for my founders edition not long ago. I couldn't tell you the difference between the founders edition and the regular branded, but it was by the far the cheapest. I saw most going for 400-430 at the time, which was about 6 weeks ago now.
Seems powerful enough, but I quickly found out that if the developers haven't optimised the game for PCs then it really isn't worth having a high end gpu. Hitman for example, has terrible frame rate issues and has crashed a couple of times

I'm wanting a gtx 1060 evga sc but I'm not sure what a gd price is, they really are all over the place with pricing.

I usually buy amd but not this time not with this overpriced rubbish, hot, and have to turn the slider up to get the advertised perf boosting your wattage upto 220W+, pass.

What do you mean the market set the price, not them?! You saying nvidia have no control over their own RRP?! And it is extortionate, nvidia have spent less developing this architecture than maxwell, so it isn't as if they could claim higher costs.
#37
Did expect the prices to drop a little this month, most of them are about £20-£30 cheaper than a month ago.

Good cards and they overclock well but I still wouldn't be keen on a Palit, short warranties. I went for the Zotac Extreme and very happy with it. Breezes through most anything 2560 x 1440 or less.

Probably because they did that last time round...

When the GTX 970 was released, it was around £270, and had the performance similar to the GTX 780 Ti (the previous gen flagship).

For Nvidia to ask for over £300 for the 1070 (which is more or less on par with the last gen 980 Ti) is too much in my opinion.

Surely worthy of a punt...£30-40 less than other 1070 GTX cards (albeit with better coolers & overclocked). These cards could be overclocked to a degree - if not quite as high as those with better coolers? Really tempted after waiting a bit since release...

To be honest I watch films in 720p all the time on my 4K TV and, you know what, they're still great films. Sure ramping up the quality might superficially make it look a bit better, but the content is the same. The same goes for gaming - a good game is still a good game, regardless of its resolution or what platform it is available on. Super Metroid looks like dog crap nowadays in all its pixelated glory but does that mean the game is any less brilliant? Far from it!
