not too different to the asus deal not too which was fairly nice. Doesn't come with dawn of war but the free ghost recon/for honor promo still applies.

Not bad at all. I'm on the lookout for a 1080ti, but right now the prices are around £750+ for a GOOD model. And it's not worth waiting 2-4 weeks for them, I reckon there should be a smaller price drop coming, fingers crossed..
I have been looking at the Euro Amazon sites and this is a good find op so thank you. Too long for my case but I would be very tempted otherwise.i checked earlier and looks like I could get 140 quid or so for my 970 via eBay so think it's a worthwhile upgrade for me.
good price but the cooler isn't so good apparently

MSI's 1080 Ti Gaming X worth every penny :-)
Smoking hot deal. Comes with a free game too. OP, I think you should mention the post, as For Honor and Ghost Recon are still worth £30-35, and can fetch up to £20 on ebay.
OOS
Back in stock on 9th May
Heat for savings and bread sticks
Some RX 580 models are almost the same price where I live (europe)
I would wait for Vega. I've only been saying that for, what, nearly a year? Still waiting. This is a good price, I'd bite now if you don't have a Freesync monitor. AMD need to pull their finger out.

I had the MSI 1070, the sole reason I'm not touching it is because its design is almost exactly the same, MSI doesn't deserve money for that stinginess

Does the game come as a code? Unfortunately selling codes on eBay is very risky - there are plenty of scammers out there
I'm eyeing the Zotac Amp Extreme but it's not easy justifying £150 extra for looks and 5fps more
If you have a really small case, and want a tiny incy wincy Gigabtye GTX 1070 is HERE! for only a couple of pounds more. Obviously it's not as good as a full size card, but you know.
Oh and the KFA2 GeForce GTX 1070 EX HERE!
for only £295 + £4.50 P&P if you don't lik the Gigabyte. It has RGB!!!!
I was looking he KFA gtx 1070as well but mind that it has no 0 fan speed and the fans never stop. And cooling is not that efficient either.
Are there any problems orderring from Amazon europe, warranty etc?

is no point to sell 970 and get this...

It's double the power and 8gb of ram. If you're planning to go above 1080p60 then it'll be worth it.

Not to mention it also has 150watt tdp compared to 145 watt (again for double the performance ).

Plus you can sell off the for honor/ ghost recon on eBay for more money back , as many have said earlier.

But if you're fine with the performance of 970( which is still quite goood afaik ) stick with it and save money .

PNY 1080 for about 400 quid.

This isn't accurate.

The 1070 is *much* faster than the 970.

This is nothing like AMD's 480->580 farce. 40% or higher performance increases.

only 34% after OC it can be around 27-30% And cost of upgrade ? sell 970 for 100-150 and get 1070 for 300-400 ? im waiting for card to play at 144fps 1080p this will be true upgrade maybe volta/vega

Where are you pulling these increasingly lower numbers from? Seems random dude, the 1070 OC's quite well, take a look.

https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Gigabyte/GTX_1070_Xtreme_Gaming/29.html

10% headroom on an already OC'd card.

But where do you pull your "only 34%" number from?

The performance summary sets the 1070 at '100%' and compares it to the 970, which is at 60%.

From the 970's view, (If you set the 970 to 100% as the baseline)...

970 - 100%
1070 - 166.6%

So, sure, it depends on your viewpoint, but it's actually, in comparison, 166% better than a 970.

Also, again, this card 300, you'd be selling a 970 for 100-150 and buying this card, which is *significantly* faster.

You're entitled not to buy this card, but it is absolutely a scorching upgrade to the 970.

I have found userbenchmark to be a terrible website for benchmarks. In my opinion, it's selection of games is not very good and doesn't accurately show the differences in cards.

You also noticed that there was a +55% difference in peak overclocked bench?

So, your own (albeit mediocre) source talks about a much higher peak OC comparison, maybe you should consider it from that site, TPU, or other sites?
