lol 800 smackers, gotta hand it to nVidia though as people seem to be ok paying that for a gfx card
Better off going for the Zotac Amp Extreme for £769.97...

Paying well over the cheaper prices to get interest free credit? If you can't buy it without credit and debt do you really need it? Hell yeah baby its a 1080ti
If you're buying this on credit, you have a lot more to worry about than spending 800 notes on a GPU.

Picked up one of these for £690 off Amazon.de via last month's deal.

Hard to vote hot based on that.
Sorry but freezing deal. I don't think that in general the 1080ti is the best value high end card anyway even at £700. Until recently (thanks miners) i had seen gtx1080s popping up at just a bit over £400. I know its not as powerful but is the ti really worth nearly twice the price? Is it twice as powerful? Probably less than 20% faster is my guess...
the high end card never gives most performance for price ratio, but the truth is, this is the only card that can do stable 100fps for those with 3440x1440 or 60fps for those at 4K. The 1080 struggles at those resolutions.

It all depends what your criteria are though. I game at 4K on a GTX1060. Admittedly I'd prefer a 1080, but it is entirely doable on lower end hardware if you are smart with the settings and don't mind lower framerates. I don't mean low settings either, you can usually keep most things on high and just disable AA (and maybe tweak things like shadows and reflections). AA is a total waste with the pixel density of 4K. As I play on console too (where 30fps is standard) I target the same 30fps in newer games, which looks fine to me as it is what I am used to from playing on consoles too. That said older titles like Trackmania Turbo, Trials etc will happily do 60fps plus at 4k anyway.

I think it's a very elitist view that you have to have a 1080ti plus to play at higher resolutions as you clearly don't unless you are targeting max settings or very high fps, which not everyone needs to enjoy a game. Digital foundry, did a very good piece on 4K gaming with a GTX970, which is a good 20%+ slower than the 1060....

It's around 20-25% faster.
It also has 11GB of VRAM for what it's worth.

It's never going to be the price : performance king but that's the price you pay at the top end.
If you want to max out 4K for run high refresh rates then the 1080 Ti is a solid purchase.
Better wash my clothes and feed my dogs for that price. These prices are crazy!! I'll stick to 1080p thanks
For that price you could buy a whole decent gaming PC. Ice, ice, absolute freezing cold.
