I worry about all these brands and how good they warranties are, I haven't bought all that many cards over the years... But I do remember buying a Palit once longtime ago and the fan burnt out within 2 weeks. When spending this kind of money I really want a guy outside my door with a New one in hand just incase oO
Need to educate myself about these other brands (Reliability etc).
My current card is EVGA gtx 660ti sc 3gb... I have had it 4yrs and it's done me proud. With Battlefield 1 coming I am looking at the 1070s, though I don't want to pay 400+ if possible.
For good warranty support you want another EVGA or Gigabyte (who have a UK RMA base)
Thanks :)

Quick a lot faster: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1743?vs=1731
However, the 970 is still solid for 1080p in my opinion. As usual it depends what you play and the visuals you want.

GTA V redux mod has got me looking, seems crazy to shell out £350 for it though

not a bad price, i believe their B Grade products only get 90day warranty though
They should have a 3 year warranty with Intel though.
Good price CPU for someone building a budget PC imo.
It says ignore any references to warranty in red.

AFAIK all retail Intel CPUs have a 3 year warranty with the manufacturer. I don't see why a b-grade product wouldn't continue to have a manufacturer's warranty.

I think the 90 day warranty is with Overclockers.


​You may be right but I've not seen a faulty cpu for years (maybe 15) and I sell pc's all the time..i buy second hand CPU's all the time as well to save just 10 or 15%.. Obviously you might get a dud but it's highly unlikely.
Expired?
Probably for the best as I might have been tempted with an unnecessary upgrade from my i3

If Intel would be willing to honour the warranty it would be from the original purchase date (or even manufacture date), seeing as the 4460 launched 30 months ago, I wouldn't bank on getting a long warranty from Intel. However, this would be covered by the consumer rights act, so you should have at least a 6 month warranty from Overclockers, although getting Overclockers to honour their legal obligations can be quite an arduous experience.

I wouldn't really worry about buying used CPUs though, used CPUs are generally quite a safe buy as they're relatively durable (as long as they haven't been misfitted or too heavily abused). It's a good price, I don't know why this is so cold.

People need to understand that this card is either for those that want the cheapest 1080 or more likely those that want to remove the cooler and replace it with a waterblock.

Hot from me. Fantastic price. Although I'm holding out for the 1080ti myself ;)

I don't know why this is cold my 1080 cost me £700. Ok its not the best and its a reference but not a bad buy
Because this was £530 on Overclockers a week or so ago.
£550 is still insane for a GPU! 1080 Ti will be coming soon so the existing cards might be reduced then.

Seems quite a good screen, love how they list "flicker-less technology" as a feature though, you could say that about every LCD screen ever made, the very nature of the technology (a constant light rather than moving beam in the old CRTs) means that none of them flicker!

The flicker-free feature refers to the backlighting used to light up the LCD.
LCD's themselves don't emit light, they need backlighting from either LED's, or CCFL's. (Although you'll only find CCFL's in old displays now since it's all been replaced by LED's.)
LED backlighting on some screens has a flicker problem due to backlight dimming, since a lot of them use something called pulse-width modulation, PWM for short. Any screen that doesn't use that, is flicker-free.
The more you know huh :{
Mine arrived today. So much better out of the box than the AOC. Colours are better brightness better. Had a quick play on GTA5 which looked great and photos look good too. Cheers OP :)

No 4k. Too expensive. Minus

I wasn't really fussed about 4K. I already have 3 x 24" monitors connected but they are now going on my gaming cockpit. I wanted something that had a decent res without stretching it too much so this res is perfect.
thedozyone
I just sent an aoc (admittedly a cheap brand) the brightness / colours were bad. I'm hoping better things from this (fingers crossed)

For me it was the other way round. Owned an AOC and an Acer with the same 28" 4K TN panel. The AOC I had absolutely no complaints about until the displayport input died a year and a half later (got it replaced under warranty). The Acer is still going but I wish it would die. No matter what settings I change all the colours from about 200 up to 255 merge together so it heavily oversaturates at the top end.

The card in the review is the faster clocked GV-N98TXTREME-6GD which clocks at 1342mhz/1241 in OC mode, the card Overclockers are selling is the GV-N98TXTREME C-6GD with lower clocks of 1114mhz/1026 in OC mode. it's likely these chips failed to m are the grade for the faster card making the large cooler somewhat overkill.

My mistake. Those stock codes are pretty damn close though - I'm sure I'm not the first to make that mistake!

I expect you'll still be able to reach a decent OC though but not as good as the better card.

I'm building a new machine at the moment and hoping to pick up another 980ti next year too for SLI when I can afford it. It's gonna get hot in here!

Hi , do the fans spin when on desktop or just when gaming etc . Thanks

GPU fans always spin; they just spin faster when the card heats up.


A lot of them don't, these days. Have a Sapphire brand RX 480 that do not spin up unless it hits 60c. Silent at idle.

I have a 970 that does the same (Zotac, I believe).

i believe this is slightly faster than the strix but the strix is more silent (ex owner of strix)
Good to know thanks, cannot decide between them 2 or a 1060 6gb (not sure it warrants another £50 )
​Where have you found a 1060 6GB for £220? oO
First of all, 178.69+50= 228.69.
Secondly, 2 are currently listed on hotukdeals and 229 has been a standard price you can find 1060s at for over a month.
Yes my point exactly: Not £220 (_;)
No, not at all. Take another look.
The 'another 50 quid' comment was referring to 178.69+50=228.69.
Which is 31 pence away from the current price of the plus the 'another 50 quid'.
No one said you could find a 1060 for 220, that was entirely you.
Yeap! Out slightly (my bad ) but I did put in post that I noticed delivery after (but had included that when saying £50 ) not really worth grief on a lovely Sunday in my opinion but we all live for different reasons .
​Lol you're completely right. That's what a migraine does to you I guess :( sorry guys! oO
(voted hot by the way)
Still trying to make my mind up about the old gen cards or the newer ones..

It's a really tough choice between these three cards, imo.

1060 6gb, 1060 3gb, and 970 3.5+.5.

I kinda feel like the prices will continue down a bit, edging the 970 down to 150, the 1060 3gb to 175, and the 1060 6gb to 200...

The 480 will follow suit, but it's got a weird market issue that it has 3 cards that are in a virtual deadlock.

470 4gb, 470 8gb, 480 4gb, and 480 8gb are essentially within 5% of each other. Yet they are priced as unique price points.

So, you can almost discard everything but the 470 4/8 gb cards when considering. Until prices stabilize at least.
C64
rx470 at this price 4gb ram and better performing in dx12 down the road
but that 4gb will be bottle necking the card in less than a year

Its very exciting times in the console market right now, even the xbox one s is out, time to jump ship i thinks to all you pc gamers.
SLOW CLAPS ALL ROUND PLEASE!
Just read your replies, Trolling????????? I am most certainly am not. I really really do not understand this paying £300 for ONE piece of a machine when the PS4 slim gives you the WHOLE PACKAGE for £249 (case, ssd HDD, graphics card, power pack, motherboard, operating system, ram, cables, software, updates, blu ray player, and so much more) The ps4 graphics are absolutely amazing and life-like. I have never played a pc game for about 10 years because hated drivers needing to be updated, compatibility issues, freezing screens, overheating, huge boxes, tonnes of cables, no proper control pad, random crashes!! I get it as a works machine but gaming, seriously, the ps4 slim and/ or the xbox one s will just rock. Build a pc in that size for the money. Not a chance on this earth!!! That aint trolling, that's a fact!!!!!!!!

If you want an extremely cut down PC that can play games designed for 7 years ago, on you go.

But don't forget that price is made up in the higher cost of games, controllers, and xbox/ps4 subscriptions.

I play Overwatch at 4K 60FPS with my 980ti, plenty of power in it, great price.

Overwatch is a superbly coded game that doesn't have a high requirement for 4k/60fps.

It does have a lot of power, but it's priced accordingly, the 1070 is a better card.

The 980Ti blows the PS4 Pro and the "Scorpio" Xbox One out of the water, never mind the PS4 Slim and Xbox One S, both of which have largely the same levels of performance as the original PS4 and Xbox One but with increased power efficiency.

He's trolling. You're falling for it too.

Tempted to upgrade my MSI GTX 780 Gaming. Probably not worth the small jump in frames though, and potential fan noise:
NSFW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXOegObbYZY
I'm sure if he upgraded the 50p case fan and put the side panel back on there will be no more issue than any other card.
I have a prodigy mITX case, so I'd probably run into similar issues. Even with 2 120 spectre pros at the front and dual fan on my noctua, the case heat build up is immense. I didn't expect the 780 to sit at it's throttle temp 80c. Fired up Afterburner with a custom fan profile sorts it out at the expense of more noise, 72c at full tilt.
I don't think a GPU should really be throttling at 80 degrees?

Doesn't this mean this is the better offer now, as the other one that was posted has now gone up in price and is out of stock?
If your case has good airflow, then the aftermarket coolers are better. However, in my experience in my silenced mini-ITX case, these 'exhaust' blowers actually end up cooler after a couple of hours use as they throw the hot air out the back instead of re-circulating it.
Yeah blower fan when aftermarket coolers are starting to hit similar prices is gonna make this a cold deal.
Overclockers has excellent service. As above, gainward GPU is better deal in my opinion.
Probably cold because the gainward one with a better cooler was posted at the same price a few hours ago

Yeah it's a good price and card if you need something for 1080 resolution. At the end of the day, if you can play a game with the 1060 or the 480, you'll be able to play it with a 470 also. They'll all be obsolete at the same time in 3 years or whatever so buy and enjoy if this is in your budget.

Personally I would spend a bit more and get the 3gb 1060 version , it is a way better card , in this particular budget range , or a rx 480 4gb.

Hi I'm looking to buy this but I don't have any experience in installing anything in a PC, I have a GTX 970 and well would this just be a straight swap out?
Thanks
Should be straight swap. Depends how many pins 970 has. Also this is quite long. Make sure you have a space in PC case.

Bought this one my self. Had r9 280 dual x of. This one is dead silent and a lot cooler. Not even to talk about performance.
Hi I'm looking to buy this but I don't have any experience in installing anything in a PC, I have a GTX 970 and well would this just be a straight swap out?

Thanks

looking lovely an funtastic price for what you get, even the X4 is tempting . hmmm
Have people not realised you can literally buy a 1070 for £320 on Ebay yet? Sometimes even as low as £310. This is massively over paying. Importing from America is going to be far cheaper it seems, compared with UK retail prices.

Lol. You do realise the price may convert to £310 but you're also charged another ~£60 on top for the import tax. So basically the same price but with the massive hassle that if the card is faulty or develops a fault, you have to send it all the way back to the U.S.

How are people feeling about this deal?
On every 1070 post there are two opinions. One that the prices are a touch high but not too bad and should never be what the 970 was when it was released etc. Whilst some say that nvidia is just ripping us all off with their monopoly.
Can anyone clarify? I'm a stingy get at the best of times so I dont want to be ripped off...but I do want to play Witcher 3 maxed out!
My opinion: at the moment it is the cheapest price for this GPU.Yes, in couple months it will be cheaper. Ripping as off? May be, may be not. It is similar to everything, tvs, mobiles etc. At first prices are high, later coming down. Question is: Are you willing to play game on max settings now or later ( in couple month time)?
I am looking for now, so price is fine for me.
That's a good point, if im wanting to play max settings then the price is fine now. Having said that, I would prefer it if this was about 360 hehe, I'd snap it up then!

This isn't a direct replacement for the 970. People banging the fan boy drums about how this should be priced exactly like the 970 don't understand that this is a better card at launch than the 970 was.
And the 970 was a GOOD card!
This fills the 980 space from last gen (it's better than a 980ti as well). While the 1080 fills the 980ti space (and it's way better than the 980ti).
Trying to compare this to the 970 just doesn't make sense in terms of performance jumps.
This price is a tad high, but it's close to reasonable.
I'd like to see the cheapest 1070s at 299 and the best AIBs at 359.
Thanks for the reply, you've made some good points that have helped me. I'm still not 100% there yet, but definitely answered some questions.

349.99 for a gainward dual fan. Not bad.

That's a bargain basement non-reference design though. if you're spending a hefty £350 on a card you don't want it to be as cheaply made and purely functional as that Gainward, who are also one of the cheapo Nvidia card manufacturers.

I had trouble with my 7950 from day one with noise and performance. I will never go amd again, this is a tempting price to get back with the green team. I don't plan on going 4k for a while as my 1080p monitor is only a couple of years old. Ironically, I got it to take advantage of the 7950. Haha, won't be that naive again.

A 970 is certainly not future proof. It's performing worse in DX12 and Vulkan than in DX11.
Buy a 470 instead..

I decided in the end to buy this, its too much of a good thing to miss out on. Everything I want in a X99 build is bundled in. I'll report back with my findings soon.
Wonder if the Samsung SM951 suffers from a thermal throttling issue?
Seems the SM961 does. It's not so much that it throttles as that's what it's supposed to do. Rather for large reads at full speed until it crashes:

After all the issues with TLC on the 840 and 840 EVO I really don't think Samsung's QA is not great. Winning benchmarks is all very well, but without reliability what's the point?
​It's a extended motherboard there sometimes add more features than traditional standard atx boards but mainly allow you to space your graphics cards so they have some extra breathing room

Pretty good deal for a 980Ti with 5 year warranty. Will trade places with or beat a 1070 when both overclocked. Uses a fair deal more power though and only has 6GB vs 8GB VRAM of the 1070.

Rather than making inane statements about brain damage lets see some data:

http://i2.wp.com/www.babeltechreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/main-summary-OC-chart.jpg

980 slaps a 480 around in DX11, and performs similarly when both are overclocked in DX12 at 1080p and again beats it soundly at higher resolutions.

The 480 is crippled at higher resolutions, it overclocks like a dead dog and its power usage is high because it's been pushed to limit even at stock. Clinging on to the hope that DX12 is going to save it is hopeful at best along with the vague hope that it will improve with drivers over time.

Come back with something more intelligent than insults.

Old gen that will be surpassed by Rx480 in usability.
Usability? What do you mean by that. This is much faster than an Rx480.
The 480 is an utterly average card, it doesn't offer anything a 970 didn't offer 2 years ago. Similar performance, similar price, similar power usage, worse overclocking.
Yes it has a fuller Dx12 feature set but that won't see it get near a 980Ti or 1070.

Don't give me this BS. 980ti is a step up from a 980 which is comfortably beaten by 480 in dx12, and future games. saying 480 is like a 970 is like confessing in having brain damage.
Also the old gen Nvidia cards will see driver support fall off after some time as they are already considered legacy hardware. You lunatic.

Less memory and fewer cores - NVidia should be a bit more honest and call this a GTX 1055 as it's likely to be somewhere between a 1050 and 1060 in performance terms. This sort of deliberate market confusion just damages the company's reputation and it's not at all necessary.

seems great bang for the buck (not everybody is concerned of the future but maybe wants to play here and now)
unfortunately Overclockers and Scan DO NOT ship to continental EU.
Do you know of any reputable seller that does this? Apart from usul Amazon.co.uk
tnx
I'm not sure if you're missing a point here. The full 6GB 1060 doesn't prevent you playing in the here and now. The card's been out for weeks and is readily available, so you're not trading the present for the future as you seem to think, you're getting a card that performs better today, and that'll still be usable when this cheaper and weaker alternative is ready to be retired.

Neither of these cards will "be retired" while playing 1080p games.

The worst case scenario is a few titles push the VRAM to past 3gb and you would have to turn down the textures a bit.

This card is absolutely a great card right now. It may have VRAM limitations in 2+ years, but at 188.99, it's a really good price.

The CUDA core reduction of 11.1% is less than the AMD 8GB->4GB VRAM clock speed reduction (8ghz->7ghz). That's over 14%.

I'm looking for a graphics card to run three monitors for work with my 4th gen i7 desktop. I'm assuming this would this be overkill? I don't really need it for gaming. Would prefer to spend less than £100, but need something that will be fine with three screens. My current graphics card (GTX 745) only has two outputs. Any advice appreciated :-)
try gtx 660, should be cheap by now. Im using 2 gtx 660 ftw for gaming and i have 3 monitors on sli surround.
Why are these so hot?
No stock,no reviews #softlaunches becoming the norm!
Very cheeky for Nvidia to call this a 1060 but cut down the chip so much. That's without even talking about the paltry 3GB of VRAM. I would steer clear of a 3GB card in 2016, even 4GB won't be enough soon for the latest games.

£194.99 now.
If you're wanting the best performance for your money, you can't beat a 970 at £180~, it all depends on what you plan to use it for? The jump from £180 to £240 is 25% more and if you're playing at 1080p, there's no reason to spend 25% more on a card.

There are warehouse deals on Amazon for the GTX 970 G1 edition (overclocked, 3 fans, very silent and illuminated windforce logo with a backplate) for £181 with a damaged box but otherwise brand new.

So is the GTX970 still the best bang for bucks these days?
£190 for a GTX 970 isn't bad... but you're just £40 off a 6GB GTX 1060 which clearly outperforms the 970 in every game, and has a lower power consumption to boot. If you're spending nearly £200 on a graphics card anyway, £230 gets you a noticeably faster card and probably a lot more longevity. And you'll make back a tenner on the power savings! (Eventually ;))
You smooth talker you...
I'm swayed by a £50 Amazon gift voucher though, and 1060's are in short supply on there. The 970 is calling me :-)

Surely you can buy anything on amazon with that, it's just like 50 quid cash money.
