These just seem to be getting cheaper and cheaper!

Not sure on the actual card , anyone got one of these.

3 years warranty - non reference design - hopefully silent when not gaming - free $$$ as per all gtx cards at the minute.

This is the OC version but just spotted delivery charge on this, where as the Asus Strix is free delivery - still this works out cheaper if the card is as good as the Strix.

i believe this is slightly faster than the strix but the strix is more silent (ex owner of strix)

Good to know thanks, cannot decide between them 2 or a 1060 6gb (not sure it warrants another £50 )

Price does not include delivery, should be marked as £178.69

hotukdeals.com/dea…802 there you go

Bought this a few days ago from OC, Maplins will price match at £169.99, but email them.... I emailed, then rang to get a quicker answer, phone said no, i then ordered from OC, and an hour later maplins emailed back saying they will price match!!

Getting closer to the £150 mark they need to be to be worth considering.

First of all, 178.69+50= 228.69.

Secondly, 2 are currently listed on hotukdeals and 229 has been a standard price you can find 1060s at for over a month.

Yes my point exactly: Not £220 (_;)

No, not at all. Take another look.

The 'another 50 quid' comment was referring to 178.69+50=228.69.

Which is 31 pence away from the current price of the plus the 'another 50 quid'.

No one said you could find a 1060 for 220, that was entirely you.

Yeap! Out slightly (my bad ) but I did put in post that I noticed delivery after (but had included that when saying £50 ) not really worth grief on a lovely Sunday in my opinion but we all live for different reasons .

No worries, wasn't saying you did anything wrong :-)

It's a good deal.

I just would suggest the upgrade for 50, but some people don't have that extra bit.

This is a good card, good brand, second best MSI design... If you have exactly 180ish quid, get it!

GPU fans always spin; they just spin faster when the card heats up.

It's a really tough choice between these three cards, imo.

1060 6gb, 1060 3gb, and 970 3.5+.5.

I kinda feel like the prices will continue down a bit, edging the 970 down to 150, the 1060 3gb to 175, and the 1060 6gb to 200...

The 480 will follow suit, but it's got a weird market issue that it has 3 cards that are in a virtual deadlock.

470 4gb, 470 8gb, 480 4gb, and 480 8gb are essentially within 5% of each other. Yet they are priced as unique price points.

So, you can almost discard everything but the 470 4/8 gb cards when considering. Until prices stabilize at least.

A lot of them don't, these days. Have a Sapphire brand RX 480 that do not spin up unless it hits 60c. Silent at idle.

I have a 970 that does the same (Zotac, I believe).

Ridiculous mate paid £1200 for two Matrix 780 Ti's just last summer.

Now look at the price of these which are equal if not better in certain games.
