Great deal, but how about the warranty for refurbished ones?

Last gen colddd

refurbished is not the right word here. Its standard "warehouse deal" with 12 months warranty. But... as far as i know amazon invoice doesnt say "used", so full manufacturer warranty shouldnt be a problem.

this is a great deal. I already have 1 i wish my motherboard could support another because I'd buy it

Same as ebay prices nothing special

Old tech but still packs a punch.

Pretty much the same as a 1070 in most games so hot from me

I've never seen any 980 Ti go under 260.

This gone now? Can't see the 296 priced one?

I honestly have no idea but at least you have Amazon 30 day money back guarantee.

EBay is typically over 300 so thus is much hotter

​Exactly. Unsure why people knocking it for being last gen. It's still within the top 7 graphic cards on the market.

Competing with a 1070, and only being beaten by a 1080+.

I'm glad I stuck with mine, even though it doesn't get used much. At least it'll be a 1080p beast for years to come.

Uses way more power than the 1070 though.

I bought this used for £260 a few weeks ago. Cheeky how the increase the prices just before giving 20% off!

At £237 it's also a hell of a lot cheaper than an equivalent 1070, which is selling for £400+ on Amazon. That ~£160 buys you a lot of electricity.

Say there's 100w between the 980Ti and 1070 and a KWH of electricity is ~15p then £160 buys you somewhere around 10,500 hours of gaming...assuming my maths is correct.

£11 a month in the difference if you left it running at full pelt all month long.

True and I would buy this over a 1070.
Still cheeky though

Yes, if you're mining (or doing any other flat out 24/7 activity on your GPU) a ~£400 1070 might make more sense than a ~£240 980Ti due to the electricity savings. If you're just gaming non-professionally, I think you'd struggle to make your money back in just electricity.

From the perspective of someone who uses their GPU for gaming, at equal cost I'd take a 1070 over a 980Ti for the lower power consumption and it being a generation newer. However, when a 980Ti is significantly cheaper, I'd take the 980Ti as the actual performance is near identical between the two GPUs.

gtx 1070 runs quiet and cool which this cards is not (gtx 980ti) I had this version (MSI) of this card and it was one of the best cooling for 980Ti (only palit jet stream is better in my opinion for gtx 980ti).
But I had 1070 MSI gaming X as well and its huge difference beetwen this two cards , Gtx 980ti 70-72 C and louder compare to 60-65 C on Gtx 1070 (plus 1070 is a way quieter) .
If you can get gtx 980ti for almost half price of 1070 (for today) there is not really anything bad you can say about this card and still one of the fastest cards on market ,hovewer 1070 is significantly better and worth paying 50-60 quid more (before minning times) .

You're not wrong there, when there's only 50 quid or so in it, the 1070 is the better choice for almost everyone.

When it comes to cooling solutions, the 980Ti really benefits from the AIO liquid cooling options which some board partners offered. I've got a Gigabyte Waterforce 980Ti, which I got for £350 in May last year, and unsurprisingly it's very quiet and runs nice and cool, even OC'd to 1500Mhz+.

All that aside, whoever bought these MSI 980Tis for sub-£240 is getting a hell of a lot of GPU for their money!

I did. Sold my 390x a week ago for £280 and bought this.
