Back down to black fridays price
Great price that.
I own this gfx and it's fantastic....my only nag is when I play Rome 2 Total War from my steam there is coil whine. I tried changing vsync to on or off etc but to no effect. Other games play and sound beautifully.

Have you tried capping the framerate ? You can do it through one of the bits of software but sometimes if the game has uncapped fps it can go upto something crazy like 2000-6000 and cause the whine. Lemme know !
Also the price is back to £307 for me, nice find earlier though

Look further down and click "new and used" for the original price through prime.
I might be wrong but I feel for the extra £110 a 1070 8GB card is well worth the money/performance upgrade over this, and heading into 2018 you might regret buying a 1060 if you plan on playing all the new titles at high frame rate and decent settings. Depends what you want though, horse for courses.
zotac 1060 6GB amp edition is this price too.. I like zotac cards, very good cooling and decent warranty.
anyone know when the new series of cards come out? I thought it was early 2018 but I'm not sure... if it is I might just wait it out and grab a 1070 then when they drop in price.
Haven't seen anything definite, and we usually get a heads-up at least a few months before a Major release such as that would be... my guess is we'll probably see them at one of the tech expos in march-may time for release aug-oct time. Could be wrong, won't be the first time, but if they were gonna be soon we'd have seen some rumblings by now and also they just released the 1070ti and volta based titan V, doubt they'd bring something else to the table so soon that might overshadow those IMO.

Cap frame rates using vsync in game. Also no idea what that guy is on about but no graphics card produces 2000 fps. Coil whine is the noise a gpu makes and it does this during load (whilst gaming). The only way to stop coil whine is to reduce the load or change the load. For instance one programme might cause 100% gpu load and loud coil whine, whilst another programme might cause 80% load and less whine.

Ultimately if your gpu whines during gaming no setting you apply will make it go away.

You can use Nvidia Profile Inspector to cap frames in a specific game

Amazon activates it every "x" days. I found it on-off more than three times.

You're instincts were correct.
I had concerns about David Wandless and asked an Amazon rep to verify the seller, 'Oh it'll be fine' says the rep.
Still thinking the seller was dodgy to buy from I kept tabs, and today they've gone, store and all.
