Nvidia 1070 and ti - pre-stupidity cost - £420 @ Novatech

Found 22nd Jan
I think novatech have been caught napping.
They say stock due soon and still accept orders.

I wonder if they'll honour those prices

It is. Ex VAT
Why would someone spend £420 on a 1070ti when you can get 1080's for basically the same price? One of the last ones posted here hotukdeals.com/dea…578

They come up all the time, just need to keep an eye out. This isn't a good deal.

not going to deny that the price of that 1080 isn't good but the reason people go for this card model is because it normally has a far bigger margin than the card you posted. 1080's for the most part go for £500 or sometimes higher in the current market and depending on the model you want, for the small difference in performance(especially if you overclock the 1070ti) it makes a lot of sense for people on a tighter budget. With the price of mid to high tier cards increasing considerably, this is a good deal.

Not very smart are you, it was clearly posted as an example (I'll assume you know what one of those is). All you have to do is keep an eye out for similar deals that have been posted multiple times before.
Gone for it as well as the 1080 on Amazon Spain (here). Whichever one comes first I'll keep, cancel the other. Unless one is miles better than the other?
I ordered the 1070ti gaming edition from novatech today as they are the only option at the moment that have not gone too mad. Overckockers are 549 to 599 for the 1070ti at the moment . Also keep an eye out as nvidia directly keep getting stock occasionally on the stock 1070ti for £416. Worth a punt as well as even going for more on eBay which is crazy. The 1080 is a better card but I’ve been looking for weeks and not seen any hit below 499 non ex display and I’m
Only gaming at 1440 so the 1070 is perfect.
Of course they'l honour it it's a very low end card.

"Very low end? Lol.
MSI armour coolers really are not good... I took the cooler off of the 1060 6gb version and three of the ram chips are not cooled at all. They don't come into contact with any of the cooler.

The gaming one for a bit more is a lot better, plus good overclocker too.

By low end I mean the heat sink side of things there's a lot more expensiver models of graphics cards that have beefier heat sinks and are of a better quality as such Asus. (This will help to keep temps down under load without sounding like a Eurofighter Typhoon)

As a example ;

I'd rather pay the extra for the better cooling.

This card is equivalent to buying a bottle of cheap branded fairy liquid from Aldi to actual fairy liquid.

This isn't Nvidia's fault. It's the retailer that sets these prices.
Due to the increase in demand for GPU's (mining), the retailers tend to sell them much above their retail price.
All gfx cards are at crazy prices at the moment, THE CRASH IS COMING, then there will be a glut of second hand cards, and new cards will halve in price.

The year 2000 🙄. Do you not read the newspapers the millennium crash will kill all the computers. Get with the times.
Where is the deal?? this is cold like Moscow..

Why will there be a crash?
The one review on Amazon backs up the shoddy cooling on this card. Also it's not actually in stock. But it is the cheapest 1070 ti that you can order.
I was worried about 18 months ago that my 1070 would be out of date by now ... Needn't have worried tbh. And could probably sell it for similar to what I bought it for. In fact I may do.

And yes it is a cool story...bro.

Well it’s twice the heat of your only deal already so you are wrong(again).
You'll be waiting ages for the bit coin market to crash, I just had a word with my mate and he said it ain't gonna happen for ages.

It started of good, the middle was struggling to keep my attention a little and the ending just left me with a whole lot of if buts, maybes and what ifs. But like most things like that we will wait a year for the sequel to see if it explains the 1st one any better. Personally I’d give it a 6 out of 10 and probably would recommend a friend read it though.

Bitcoins are not mined with GPU but with ASICS :P
Besides that, mining is not the only thing which affects gpu availablility, most of it can be blamed on Samsung (there is a huge issue with ram supply). As example look at 1080: miners will usually ignore it and go straight to 1070ti or 1080ti, but still 1080 is not available anywhere.

None of the cards advertised for old prices are actually in stock, and I really wonder if pre-orders will be honoured.

It's very unlikely that crypto markets will crash to the point of mining being unprofitable. The markets crashed 50% last week and mining was still very profitable. What you should look out for is Ethereum moving to a different transfer method which doesn't involve mining, supposedly happening some time this year. With the 2nd largest crypto out the mining equation we could see the end of the mining boom.
Just FYI guys, before posting my 1080 deal I called novatech asking for ETAs on their 1070 TI's as I'd rather one. They've been this price since New Year's.

Their estimate was 7-9 weeks across the range of TIs.

Heat though, the red MSI at 437.99 was my pick when I was tempted.

Bitcoin is already down to $7k from $19k. Quite the drop. South Korea is on the verge of banning. China is considering. France and Germany have announced war on crypto-currencies. The end is nigh.

You have to call them to see how many are on back order. I rang today regarding 1080ti's and most of them have a 2 month wait... However they have not put the prices up so maybe order one whilst they are still low! 1080ti are all £899 on scan now!
I'm going to wait for the g20 summit in March for when legislation will get introduced/enforced for cryto currency trading/mining and then graphics cards should fall in price... reuters.com/art…28X

At the moment prices are so high because they're being used to mine cryto in it blockchain processing
Gotta do that data mining.
