I think it's a mistake the same card is £255 at scan and it's a 4gb card and if you do the reading on laptop's direct it also says 4gb so don't be surprised to get a card missing 4gb. I would call to confirm.

4 or 8GB, still a good price for a card that has been incredibly scarce and suffered long term price gouging. Though, if you ordered it and got a 4GB, you would have every right to be annoyed, I'm not sure how much impact the extra 4GB would make anyway as you'll be GPU constrained somewhat

And the tech specs says 8GB. Not confusing at all.
I'm tempted to gamble on this. The picture looks like the 8GB model, just seems to be the description which says 4GB

Don't worry, we will not get that until November anyways
I think waiting on any GFX purchase till after the 1070 ti is out would be wise.

Why?

Gtx 1070s are circa 370 and a gtx 1080 is roughly 460.

The 1070ti won't change any prices since stock is drastically low for every card.

It may push the price of used cards down but unless there's a huge supply I wouldn't bank on any difference.

It's kinda like waiting for the end of crypto currency mining. Good luck As long as one rig can make £120 profit a month it will not end.

120 profit on a rig with how much?

My point is: The 1070ti will disrupt the 1070 prices, which will push the 1060 down as well. Which should either push the Vega to extinction, or pull their price down.

The entire market will move down (hopefully).

I'd predict prices around....

1060/580 £210
1070 £340
1070ti £375
Vega56 £400
1080 £420
Vega64 £470*
1080ti £630*

The only sticking points are the top end, they might not come down with it. If so, they will stay at their current prices.

The 1050ti and the 1060 3gb and 570 probably won't be impacted too much.
Wonder if this is another misprice? Maybe some will be sent out like the 1060 Gigabyte Windforce deal at circa £225. Guessing others might be cancelled?

Amazon may be selling cards at £220 but these are all pre release and may never turn up.

Worst thing you can do is call them up! They soon cancel the orders.

Depends on what you mean by how much. It's just an average let's say if you mine zcash with 6-7 cards.

So you've bought 7 graphics cards at 150 each average? That's £1050.

Add in the PSUs and mobos, another 250? Probably more.

So that's 1300 outlay, to make 120 per month without taking into account electricity.

It'll take a year to make your money back on a volatile industry.

You were probably better off spending that money on the coins rather than mining.

Edit: is that how it works? Correct me otherwise.

The truth is more grim than that. First of all the argument of "you were probably better of spending that money on the coins" is actually suggesting to invest your money in a highly volatile "stock" and praying that it will go up in value. Once you got the hardware you can mine whatever coin you want, whatever is profitable at the time. Once you put all your money into ethereum, you gotta start going to church and pray as hard as you can since you put all your eggs into one basket. Of course, you can buy a bit of this and a bit of that... But to circle back to my previous comment, I said profit and it would not be profit unless you deducted all your expenses first. What's the ROI on it? Unfortunately it's now past the golden era and you're not making £300 a month anymore. But it's fun for the whole family and I have not had to turn the heating on in the house yet lol

That's fair enough.

Glad it's working out for you
This is scam, not a deal, I ordered 2 in the morning and after I paid, I received an email that the product is not in stock. They will refund me in 2 days!!!! so they will use my money for 2 days!!
In this way they are using clients money and they created a lot of traffic for the website!
they are cheaters!
