Man we are getting shafted on the 10 series prices! i was expecting £340-50 tops!
Edited by: "NomadJack" 10th Jun 2016
Geez £400 and they still charge over ten quid delivery on top, very pricey though i guess that's normal for new cards....

The smart choice is buying the last gen cards when the prices inevitably tumble, still more than adequate for the vast majority of games too....

Founders edition cards are the cheapest at £400

These prices are a joke the launch price for custom cards was supposed to be £330
Expecting a decent revision of this to be over £400. So much for just over £300. I guess most people will be waiting for the 480 now then unless something shakes up the prices. AMD isn't going to be doing it so not sure where that would come from.

The 980 Ti really should drop now. Hopefully we can get hold of a brand new 980 Ti < £350.

they cannot be serious, it's only $379 how can they charge £400 that's obscene,, way to lose sales nvidia when the AMD rx480 is released and people realise you can buy 2 of them for less than one of these they will regret charging this much
And that delivery cost!
Yep I sold my 970 before all this kicked off with the 10 series - hoping to pickup a new x80 or x70 - but with the pricing I think I just pickup another 970 or similar when they get reduced down.

Maybe even a 980 Ti? The 1070 has to drive down the price.
there is a gtx1070 there on scan for £517, are they high???
...Seriously, Nvidia? Switching to AMD...
Stupid prices, I won't be buying one now. I'll wait for the AMD 480 to be released and see what that is like.

Isn't that the hybrid cooler version? They usually run cost higher than air cooled versions.

The problem here is that AMD don't offer a single GPU comparing to the 1070 or 1080. You either have to go multi-GPU or pay the price.

That's what I'm thinking. AMD really needed to offer a competition to these new cards otherwise people with >= 290X performing cards either have to buy another or buy the new NVIDIA cards. Not great for us.

It $449 direct from Nvidia or £399. So going on $449 then adding VAT it should be about £375. So it's about £25 too much.
I think its wise to see what the red team has to offer this time round, the RX480 is a promising piece of kit! maybe their high end stuff will make us "green fanboys" change our minds.
This is the 1070 FE, just wait for the AIB versions to come out by the end of the month! The prices will balance, and be cheaper. Just like what's happened with the 1080s! Unless you've got the kinda of machine that only has space for REF/FE versions, don't bother with them!

And no, I'm not a AMD fanboy, I'm waiting on the ever faster versions of the 1080 to come out by the end of the month. I sold one of my 970s, just a few weeks back.

But hey, you get what you can afford and/or like. It doesn't matter as long as it does what you want it to do, AMD or Nvidia!

​yeah it is but surely not £120 more than the founders edition which is already £70 more than supposed RRP, it's in gtx1080 territory at that price
Do you think NV will drop prices anytime soon? Not a chance because they know the fanboys will stump up the cash.

Actually the Nvidia US website lists it for $449 (ex vat) (£312)

We are paying £333 (ex VAT)

So there is only a difference of £21.

You can't blame Nvidia for the UKs 20% VAT

The red team is offering nothing in comparison to these cards (single GPU). If they do release the 490 (480X) then it could be close to the 1070 but there's nothing concrete.

​I mean the standard cards in American start at $379 not the founders edition
It was obvious that the FE price would drive up custom card prices, simply because they offer more performance and better cooling. £430 for custom cards.
Don't do it, reviews have the reference (founders edition) cooler hitting the thermal throttle. You definitely want a different cooler.

I know the 1080 throttles but does the, fe gtx1070?

Even if it doesn't throttle immediately the clock is very dependent on the temperature. Better be safe than sorry and buy a card that's capable of cooling itself effectively.

Yes, although I think nvidia are really good at handling their inventory so not many old gen cards are around to get cheap once the new cards are released - most recently I seem to remember the GTX 780 practically disappeared when the 970 came out

OCUK had some good deals on the 780 and 780 Ti when the 970 was released. It might not happen again though.
Umm the 1070 out bencarks the 980 ti a card that is 150~200 pound more. Explain how the 10 series prices are shafting again?

Cards are always more in the UK, it's no surprise and oncethe release rush drops so will the price.

The 970 sold for how much on release, wasn't it around £250? The newer revision costing £150 more is not great. The 980 Ti is now simply overpriced.

Just hold your horses , Like anything released on day 1 , we are all nothing but cash cows and expect to be milked.....some people though might pay extra to be milked ;-) but that is their choice ...

I wonder if Amazon Warehouse is a good place to loiter looking for some bargains in the coming weeks? I managed to get a nearly new 970 for 170 a couple of months back so they are out there.

But the point is the performance is higher for less money, the 970 didn't really kill off cards priced higher than it, they need to make up that reduction in profits somewhere.

People need to look at it in a "£ vs performance" way rather than" X card cost this much much on release so this is over priced"

Yeah price for performance for example the rx480 which has just had its 3d mark benchmark released a little bit higher than a gtx980 and expected to cost £160 :'P

You need to think of the 970 in the range of cards. How much is the low-end 1060 going to cost, £300? The baseline price of their GPU's has gone up, in my opinion, too much.

£160 is rather optimistic. I was thinking more like £200 for the 4GB and £229 for the 8GB
We are absolutely getting hammered for that price.

970 will become a legendary GPU, was great value when launched and is now looking increasily great value compared to this generation.

Would pick up a second hand 970 for £180ish any day unless I was planning on VR/4K.
Over the past 2 years especially the price in the uk for almost all PC parts has been insane i guess with the decline of AMD nvidia/Intel really don't feel the need to price competitively anymore
