No, i really hope this is a joke

Good price. But I'm still looking for a second hand one for around £140. Cant find any

Yes!
I have an SLI setup in my chromebook so a single card should easily fit in yours.

That's a great price for both of those cards. I've had an EVGA 960 SC for 13 months and it's been brilliant. This seems like a much better deal than the newer and more expensive 1060 3GB version.

I must admit. These 970's are starting to get very tempting even though I'd much rather get a 1060 6GB. But those are curently out of my price range.

You missed the boat there they went for £199 few days ago. Won't be that price again the 970 sold way for then the 980 so loads of stock to clear

​Ask on The sale section here. Seen a few go for 130 delivered.
I managed to get one a few months old off ebay for 120 (140 bin with a discount code). Some sellers also agreed to end listing early or adjust sale price for a 140 bin. Message them and try your luck.

​if you've got Student prime... keep an eye on the warehouse deals. I got 20% off a used very good Strix. £162 down to £130

In need of a new card thanks for the post

I have been looking on this site too with a Wanted listing. But no ones approached me yet. Ive been looking for three days now. I will continue my hunt. Thanks for the advise.

Tempting to chuck in another G1 at this price, although I don't struggle with the single card really...

Or sell your 970 for 120 on Ebay and grab a 1070, bests 970 SLI.

20 quid saved on electricity over 2 years as well.

Would only cost you about 30 quid in the long run. (50 outlay on difference, 20 earned back through electricity).

Not to mention, the 1070 would hold it's value longer than the 970.

So glad I sold a couple of months ago; someone bought by 970 for £205!

Of course.
Remove Chromebook bottom, remove all Chromebook internals, reduce physical size of graphics card with a sledgehammer, tip pieces into upturned Chromebook, place botton panel carefully on pieces, jump up and down on it until it clicks back into place. Job done.

Nah, just gonna stay with the 970 G1, it plays all my games great. It only peaked my interest briefly because I saw it for sale a few weeks ago still at £280.

do you think if one of these will be ok for 1080p gaming playing Horizon 3 and Gears 4?? i am tempted to build a pc just to play these

Please provide link where you can find a 1060 or a 480 for the same price. I would only pick the 1060 6gb model over this card. The G1 970 is known to overclock to over 1550 on boost taking it ahead of a stock 980.

The 4GB 480 is equivalent to this but currently £30 more. Slightly higher wattage, but slightly better DX12 performance. Should be the same price as this (and it was, when it released!).

The 8GB 480 gives you a lot more VRAM headroom, which may be useful in a year or two, but it's a clear £50+ more.

The 3GB 1060 is reasonably favourable, until that 3GB becomes restrictive, and you're forced into games which look a little worse than they would on the 970, but with a higher frame-rate. Given the performance difference, it's quite close - but, again the 3GB 1060 is £20+ more (spotting a pattern yet?), so it may be tempting to cross one's fingers that they get a good 970 that clocks better than Christiaan Huygens.

The 6GB 1060 is clearly better in every way. But it's £55 more - a third of the price again.

The 470? It's well over 10% behind the 970 in the 470's optimum environment, and we're sometimes lucky to see them for £170 - it's hardly worth saving a fiver to lose so much performance, as well as the other caveats of the 470.

It's great that you're trying to take part in a tech discussion, so please don't feel discouraged by these mistakes. Perhaps when trying to comment on areas you don't know about, you may find it better to phrase your comment as a question.

The EVGA SSC's in SLI are great.

This isn't even AMD's latest drivers which increase drawcall efficiency by 15% in dx11 and opengl.
3.5GB is barely any more futureproof than 3GB btw.

It's great that you are pulling numbers out of just one site bro
Edited by: "Muffinss" 16th Sep 2016

I love my new Asus 970. Only card I considered was a 1060 6gb but too expensive, too scarce and no Amazon deals....and overkill for what I want. You know, it is OK to buy a 970 people.

Ive got an MSI GTX 960 2GB Gaming version is it worth me upgrading? Thanks in advance

Not... sure... if... serious... oO

Your (one) site just entirely backed me up. Not only did your (one) site review a £220 (!) 8GB 470, but it had a ~5% overclock and couldn't quite keep up with a stock 970 for the most part - in a battery of tests and on a system that show the 470 in its best light.

Both of the 970s in this deal have a ~15% overclock out of the box! (1050MHz -> ~1200MHz)

Are you seriously recommending that people spend the extra ~£45 for that 470 in your (one) link over these? oO

Again, "bro": if you're new to the subject, feel free to ask questions! For example, perhaps ask about the 470's higher dependence on CPU IPC compared with the 970 - or do you really think that the people buying 470s have a i7-5960X Extreme Edition in their systems? oO

At least we can all stop pining for Ferrari, I guess...

Edit: you might not listen to me, so I'll just quote from your (one) link: "You are looking at a product that competes in-between the GeForce GTX 960 and GeForce GTX 970."

That's the 8GB overclocked 470, remember.

Can't see where it says it's a stock 970.
Anyway the 970 is at its peek and it does not fare well in the newer APIs at all.
AMD has a track record of their cards getting better over time, in fact the review I sent isn't even using the latest drivers which increase draw calls per second by 15-20%​.

All reviews show the stock cards. It's a stock 970, don't wiggle, you were shown even from your OWN review.

I've had enough with AMD and their constant "Just wait, it'll be better next time, promise!".

It hasn't been better. Every card since the 290x has been a let down.
