Daily deal. Wow although 1070 is slightly better, its a lot more expensive than this! Im on a 970 and wanted a 1070 but might just go for this as I only play 1080p gaming until i buy a 2.5k monitor.

Also 2% quidco and $115 paragon in game currency selling for £12 on auction site. You get the code with the item.

Good price for a ti, good cards

beat me to it stunning deal

Amazing deal. Very similar performance to a 1070 but far cheaper. HOT

Why would you go from a 970 to this for 1080p gaming? Madness....

£300 vs £350, not much in it. Over a couple of years, there'd be about a £20+ difference in power consumption, too, which narrows the gap further!

I voted "Hot", but I'd still recommend the little extra for a significantly-faster 1070.

Got it! INSANE DEALLLL!

Agreed. Witcher 3 on Ultra and Hairworks enabled and I am gettign 53fps on average. I havent overclocked my G1 970 though.... I am going to pass on this and wait for 1080ti news. Have put aside a couple of grand for 1080ti and an X34P for xmas time. I hope all 980 Ti come down to this price soon.

Oops I just posted this deal. This is an epic card that blows a reference 980ti out of the water. Bought one instantly

Not really fair to compare a high end Gigabyte against the cheapest 1070 (which assuming you are referring to the KFA on ocUK, is a reference blower).
Gigbytes brand tiers are Extreme > G1 > Windforce
If you compare against the cheapest Gigabyte then it's £300 vs £389, or if you compare against the highest end then it's £300 vs £419

That said, in game play terms there isn't really that much between the cheapest and most expensive so the point may be redundant anyway

Still, I think this is a good deal.

It pains me to see the 980 Ti under £300
However it has served me well the past 12 months and was a worthwhile upgrade from the 970. Waiting on the 1080 Ti now...

I've a question that the power supply manual doesn't answer. I've got an EVGA 650W GQ Gold hybrid PS & on it, it has sockets for VGA1 & VGA2 (both 8 pin). This GFX card takes 2*(6+2) power connections.

The 2 VGA cables supplied with the PS each have 2 * (6+2) male connectors in serial (at the gfx card end) so do I just run 1 VGA cable from the PS & connect both of the 6+2's to the gfx card.......or do I use BOTH of the VGA cables supplied & just use 1 * 6+2 connector from each of the 2 cables into each 6+2 slot on the gfx card?

I'd prefer to just use 1 cable as it would be much neater

Thanks for any insight!!

The manufacturer clearly felt that one cable would supply the required power for 2x 8 pin connections which is why they designed it that way.

On the other hand the correct answer is buy a GTX1070 because it uses vastly less power than this and is still worth the extra money, as I have said in other threads.

Outrageous deal. And Playstation peasants are getting excited because they can spend £350 for the second time in three years to finally get 1080p 60fps...

Tom's Hardware stated that "Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 980 Ti Xtreme Gaming might just be the fastest single-GPU graphics card we've ever tested". I know the new cards have come out, but that is a pretty good compliment, more so when their review only came out in January of this year. This deal is one of the best i've seen.

This is a much better deal than buying a 1070. The 1070 crew won't admit it so let them craic on.

Thanks OP; way beyond my needs, but ordered, nonetheless.

Just to point out, this is an Xtreme Classic as the description states, rather than an Xtreme Gaming

At the time of that review, this was £600. 8 months later.... half price. Note that Toms hardware also noted that power consumption was twice as much as a single 970 (which I have). Make sure your PSU can handle this.... i think my seasonic 660W could manage it just. This is clearly above my needs too but still ooming and aahing, havent bought it yet. Very tempted though

Do It! Total bargain

I'm running Xfire R9 280X's.. Worth the upgrade to this?

yes...

280xs are awful, sold my 7970 which is the first version of the 280x and got a 970 MUCH better card.

But i wouldnt advised buying this, youre better off buying a 1070 the new memory is much better and the card will get better with drivers and hold its value more

I can see 980tis for less soon, anyone who bought this really has no clue about gaming and actually just lost money rather than saved it lol... 1070 all the way

No, I meant the Gigabyte from a few days ago. We've had two £350 1070s in the last week on top of all of the earlier £360 deals, like that great Palit deal last week.

Shame that was a review of a different card, though. This is the Classic, not the Gaming. There's about a 20% difference in core clocks, for a start! Show me a £300 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 980 Ti and I'll... well, I'll vote "Hot" there, too, I guess! But more enthusiastically.

But yes, you're right that a significantly-overclocked 980 Ti was arguably the highest-performing single GPU several months ago... Thank you for that extremely relevant quote. I won't spoil the result of the referendum for you!

The memory is exactly the same only 2gb more of it and it's completely useless for games unless you sli as any game that was running on settings that needed 8gb of ram would be too much for the GPU, performance on the 1070 and this are almost identical you could use the extra cash and stick a water block on the ti and install the custom bios that clocks to 1500mhz and crush the 1070 on performance. Great buy at this price

50 quid for a block, pipes and rad? no mate keep living in dream land

still not at a price to justify a better value than the gtx1070
more expensive to run
no HDR hdmi socket
no 8k ready
6gb vram vs 8gb (useful in case of an sli)
as a second hand will sell for much less
also, behind by a good 7%

this card at this price would only be beneficial for someone that wants to sli his existing card

Welcome to the 980 ti thread for sub 300, brand new. Looks like, yet again, you were incorrect about your pricing.

Your statement that you can't find a used 980 ti for sub 300, and new, non reference, costs £350... Are completely wrong. Feel free to own up to it, or not.

Sorry to have to ask such simplistic questions, but how do I know if my PSU has 2 8-pin external power connectors? Or is even capable of supporting the power consumption of this card? I only currently have a 660.

80 quid for the block, obviously I ment if water cooling is something you already do genius, I always water cool so I don't need new piping pump and rads if I upgrade my GPU and your talking closer to 400 for a 1070 from a decent manufacturer with good warranty so even so your still talking an extra hundred quid or 25% of the price for a 10% performance increase so get your calculator out and get a clue mate

£50 in it realistically. Since that's a small margin I would definitely get the 1070, newer architecture albeit evolutionary rather than revolutionary and definitely longer driver support. An extra £50 for the 1070 goes a long way. I personally wouldn't touch a 980Ti for £300 now, needs to be at least another £50 cheaper.

Good deal. Gigabyte RMA is decent. RMA office is in Milton Keynes. Quick turn around.

Draw quite a bit more power over a 1070 with only 1 or 2 frames less than a 1070 is most games. Will change slightly when 1070 drivers improve though.
