Didn't realise Ebuyer had a bad record, hopefully Novatech is better.

Post the Novatech as a deal! 1.6% Quidco. Novatech also didn't argue about a return for a part I ordered that didn't fit my case, unlike eBuyer!

Great price, if you are planning on gaming at 1080 for the future then this will last you
£90 more expensive than the cheapest (full size) 1070 ti at the moment. Not sure the difference in performance justifies the cost increase. Is this a particularly good example of a 1080? Overclockers have the Palit one for £469.99.
Would have gotten this 6 months ago but not now, too close to next gen.

The palit one for £469 is a basic model no back plate no ribbed fans etc, still decent card runs cool and quiet.

This is more comparible to the pailt jet stream for £499 on ocuk both probably worth the extra £30 imo.

If you don't plan to manually overclock, the 1070Ti is more worthwhile since a lot of the factory overclocked 1070Ti's match a stock 1080.
The 1080 does overclock quite well, fair bit of performance is left on the table if you opt to pay more for one.

Stay the hell away from eBuyer. Had a MoBo arrive with bent pins once and they wouldn't replace it because I'd opened the box...

...think about that for a second.
Good stuff for multiple live video encoding.

There are no factory overclocked 1070Tis. Nvidia forbade that. Of course, you can software overclock easily.

Seriously...don't know jokers like them are still getting away with in and in business.

Had a SSD failed within 3 months of purchase from them in the pass, and they refunded to have anything done about it. Haven't made any further purchase from these clowns since.

Horses for corses imo. Look hard enough and you’ll find someone who’s been screwed over by some firm. Even ones with amazing customer service in general like JL or Amazon.

While technically true, many manufacturers have default profiles set up for their 1070Ti through their utility software. It's not a factory overclock, but it only takes a single click. Of those, MSI and Asus definitely do, Zotac don't as far as I'm aware.
but can it run minecraft?
In reply to some of the above complaints, if you receive faulty goods you can return them for a full refund within 6 months, most places offer 12.

Example - If my washing machine breaks down on month 13 even though I only have a 12 month guarantee simply fill in a claim in the small claims court if the supplier refuses to refund you. If the courts agree a washing machine should last more than 13 months (which they will) you will get all your money back.

Thanks for that. I'm probably more likely to by a 1070 ti, but helps to know what to look for on the 'premium' models.
Just advice....

AVOID Ebuyer they are the worst company to deal with if you have any issues, a simple google search will show that if you have any issues you will have to argue your consumer rights.

Personally I'd stick to Amazon or bigger companies and have less issues with returns or refund if item develops a fault.

Speaking from personal experience I purchased a graphics card for a friend as a gift, which developed a fault 10 months after use.
Ebuyer refused to deal with my friend directly even with the receipt and invoice.

So I had to get involved in the warranty process. I contacted Ebuyer and they issued a RMA return to my friend who returned the card.
I thought that was the end of the issue and I would no longer have to get involved, however, that was not the case.

My friend sent the graphics card back to Ebuyer. Once received and tested, Ebuyer emailed to inform my friend that because the card was used for 10 months they were not able to provide a replacement or repair and offered a partial refund of the full buying price.

I'm not sure how they calculated the figure but after 10 months use they refund 60% of the value of the card new.

This was refunded on to the purchasing card, so I received a phone call from my friend explaining the situation and that the money would be refunded to my account.......

Personally I will never use Ebuyer for big purchases or gifts for others, I just don't want to deal with the poor customer service and experience.

Ebuyer have a bad rap, I'm not gonna argue that they're spot on.However, in my experience, they've been good with me. Bought a Acer monitor for £350, a laptop for £430 and a GPU for £540 off of them in the last year. I've not had many issues with any of of the above, but when my girlfriend split liquid on her laptop charger they were very helpful and pointed me to the correct replacement for it. When my monitor developed a stuck pixel, they sorted it out. #
Never had any issues with the EVGA 1080 I got from them last yea, touch wood.

All I'm saying is, they're not the devil

I hope you do not have any issues with your GTX 1080 as you will only get a partial refund and will not get a replacement.

However, EVGA are a very good company and if you deal with them directly they will replace graphics cards under warranty.
Edited by: "mai.wong" 10th May
Never using novatech again. Price gouging scum. Ordered a 1070ti a while back when there were stock shortages. They promised it by friday on backorder, then removed the date 2 weeks past the promised date, 2 weeks after that emailed me saying pay an extra £70 or they would cancel my order.

Well that's partly why I went with EVGA and paid the premium over, say, the Gigabyte cards at the time. I'd heard their warrenty and Cs were much better.
Joining in the ebuyer hate. Brand new 1440p Samsung monitor had dead pixels within 2 weeks ownership.

They made me send photos of it and questioned if there were more or less than like 6 dead ones?

Got a refund in the end.

This is bullcrap... most cards come with 2 years warranty and you RMA to the card manufacturer NOT the reseller... DONT spew crap all over the place.

The only time you would send a card back to the reseller is if it had a fault within 2 months.

If you have an invoice showing all this you could take them to court, they are not allowed to do this.

I think oyull find its not and that ebuyer are well known for refusing to honour warranties and instead providing partial refunds.

You may want to deal wiht a UK retailer and RMA via them if the warranty returns for the chosen brand is abroad.
Woudl save you on postage

Well you'd need that for it, but again, it's a single click. No stability testing required either. The OC profile is what MSI/Asus set up to get around Nvidia disallowing factory overclocks.

They cant offer partial refunds via RMA if they do you could sue them... all they will do is RMA to the manufacturer and get a replacement or an upgrade, sometimes new sometimes refurb

Those sorts of "overclocks" are pretty pointless on Pascal anyway.The reason why they are stable is because it is always a mild overclock. Never found a card that wouldn't take such a mild bump, so of course no testing is needed, and it makes little difference with speed boost 3.0 working. I've actually got better performance from my MSI Gaming X Plus 1080 from undervolting (0.931V at 1974 MHz), as prior to that it kept bouncing off the power limit at stock settings presumably because it is factory overclocked. I now get higher sustained clocks, better minimum and average frame rates, much cooler temps (<55C), less fan noise (<40%) and less coil whine. Never had problems with a 1070 hitting the power limit, however, but might be different for a 1070Ti.
