Overclocks nicely past 2GHz

I dropped a similar amount on their ASUS dual 1070 last month. Had the same thought "should I wait for another drop" and I have to say...BUY IT. Worth every penny, and even if it drops a bit in price later on, you get to run everything in ULTRA now (if your CPU doesn't suddenly become a bottleneck. My old i5 is being retired soon as some games just need more cores/higher clock speed).

wait. this has dropped 10% in a week and more to go as 1080ti not yet released

Eh? We've had plenty of £330 1070s since release - this is a fairly normal deal price. If you've found a £300 1070 somewhere, please submit it as a deal immediately!

Not a bad price , but under current circumstances , the price is bound to drop further...should be closer to sub £300 very shortly , due to this been considered as old stock and the newer 1070's will be having a refresh on the memory speed.....not the best time to buy !!!

Just.Wondering

The pound is continuing to fall, and at £330 the UK still (!) has what appear to be the cheapest non-blower 1070s in the entire world (US$335 pre-tax). I could see 1070 prices dropping... but not in the UK, not by more than a tenner or two, even with those new cards with Nvidia-approved faster VRAM.

Unless you're suggesting a new Golden Age where it's normal for Britain to get the cheapest tech in the world? Boris should have had that on the side of his bus!

I'm stuck in the same situation. Don't know wether to take the dive now or wait for another price drop???

Im waiting, mainly because I'm currently only playing CSGO and my 970 is more than enough for that

Still using the Gigabyte 980Ti I snagged from the Amazon Warehouse student deal for £155! I'd expect to see the 1070 drop sub 300 in 2017.

Heated for a good price right now.

The 1070 has already been under £300.
Will probably drop again any day now.

Can I upgrade my GTX 750i to this graphics card?
As I want to play VR GAMES.

I mean reputable brand/s with aftermarket cooler - to be sub £300 often.

Yes, it was that price for all of two hours, suggesting a misprice, and according to the few people who managed to get one, some seemed to have had their boxes opened already - possibly to have a peek at the memory modules (all the cards happened to have Micron memory).

Given that it was three months ago, if it was a new 'standard' price for 1070 deals, I think we'd have seen another one since then. Just a glitch, I'm afraid.

vega is like a unicorn still gonna wait tho

People voted hot on a 1070 with some fancy cooler for almost £400. Buy this. Seriously. I bought my 1070 for 320 in September and quite possibly the best graphics card I've ever had in my entire life. I haven't left my computer room since last September. My wife probably divorced me already. Please send help!

1060/rx480 can play with everything on ultra too. It depends what resolutions you're wanting, how much you want your fps to be showing over 60 in the corner as you play, and whether you're wanting to dip into VR or not as to whether you need a card this beefy to begin with

I was one of the people that managed to buy the card for £294 from ebuyer. My box was sealed and so far after 2 months still rocking with no issues, hasn't burned my house down. Yes all 2 hours cause it was a daily sale deal...u know first come first served!

​help? we need to join you, not send help!

Amazon have price matched this listing without the TCB, beneficial for me with Amazon Prime delivery available!

I just notice that you have two options when you purchase it: for honour / ghost recon or no thanks. These guys at Novatech are funny.

I've got the msi 1070 gaming X 8g. Can I use the armor gpu in sli mode with my 8g or does it have to be the same card in sli mode?

I was considering spending more for a second in sli, I'd sell the first and get a 1080ti instead..

Yes that's a possibility. I read in custom that twin 1070 gpu in sli mode were seriously fast at 4k. They clocked the sli set up as being the fastest 4k Set up they'd seen. Of course this was before the ti came out. The 1070 cards could drop to! Less than £300. This makes twin 1070 cards very appealing.

thx OP
my saphire nitro+ 480 8GB OC died today on way back to amazon for refund so this is lovely price and good that amazon price matched CS unbeatable.

Cheers for your help zagaz,

Can you tell me why I need a 32gb m.2 SSD.

If amazon are price matching, strongly advise avoiding novatech.
