Seems a lot cheaper than its price equivalent, plus its SC.....

Good but was £608 on Amazon a few months back. If it was me I'd wait for them to drop to that again especially with the gap to USD rate improving recently.
When you are up in that price range I would get the ASUS Strix OC and not mess about. Also EVGA have now got a FTW3 with 12 GB out
I got mine in the deal I posted for £608.

Decent card, though you need decent airflow and a custom curve, they can be a little noisier than I'd like, especially coming from a 1080GTX Amp Extreme which was significantly cooler and quieter in my case.
And you need a CPU that can keep up. My i5 4570 bottlenecks my MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X Plus.

The ftw 3 is around 10 degrees cooler and much quieter in my case which is cooled by three 14cm fans in and another 3 out. So airflow is adequate and not a factor. I had to play with the tdp and fan curve to get this to behave.

Hope I'd be okay with a i5 4690k

Gonna wait for the fw3 or the Asus one to drop on Amazon before I upgrade from a 780

Might drop more but this is still a good price if needed. Plus all 1080 Ti cards clock more or less the same when boosted.
Ah sod it, I'll have half a dozen then; it'll only result in the end of a loving relationship, I can handle being single again.

Which games are bottle-necking an i5 4570?

That deal at Amazon made me have the card in and out of my basket for ages, good price and a good manufacturer for warranty etc.

Eventually I got a Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme 1080Ti for £680 and with its triple fan it is pretty quiet, like my Gigabyte 1070 was before it. I sold the Destiny 2 code that came with it for £25. That made the card even cheaper.

Still at 4k it does get pushed to its full in certain games, manual can curve a must.

I prefer the triple fan of the Gigabyte for cooling.

Keep your eyes open the Asus Strix 1080 TI was only €735 ~£650 at Amazon.de over the past week, I was going to post it. It seems to keep changing, so I'd keep a shortcut to it.
There is also a Gigabtye card (triple fan) from Amazon.fr for only £639, and the Aorus version for £678.
Cpu's aint really bottlenecked games for years now.
Just buy a PS4 pro and stop messing about..

Watchdogs and The Division. Constant stutter and low FPS in Watchdogs. Even if I lower graphics settings. And The Division keeps freezing.

Well if all CPU cores are hitting 100% and the GPU is averaging 60-70% what do you think might be happening? There's plenty in Google about this. There is a bottleneck calculator online which confirmed my own findings.

Can you post a link to that calculator?
I'm curious, not questioning you, but it seems unlikely you'd max out your CPU on those games. They're both Ubi games, and poorly optimised. Watch Doge was notoriously bad for stuttering framerates.

If a game is using 100% cpu on new chips or even 4790 chips, its just poorly optimised.

But when my GTX 970 was installed it played smooth. And with the same CPU. I'll admit it is only the Unisoft games and I know they are notorious for poor optimisation. I'll post the link.

The i5-4570 isn't a new chip.

Not sure how accurate that calc is, says a skylake 6700K and 1080ti is bottlenecked, no way that is right.
3930K and 1080Ti says "7% bottlenecked".

Don't even know how you can be a "%" bottlenecked. It's either bottlenecked or it's not, it's a 1 or a 0, on or off.

Daft calculator is daft.
Price is up to £686, and I managed to buy this from Very yesterday at £609, special deal with £100 off, but they sold out in 24hrs. Glad I got mine when I did, and it comes with Destiny 2
