Good for someone who needs a GPU urgently - mind its not the best price but its solid.
Just for someone who could pay a tad more for the amazon refund and hasslefree customer service.

Why but when 11** series are due out soon ?? I would wait

Why but when 11** series are due out soon ?? I would wait


because a 1080 is more than enough for most people and will be good enough for a few years. 2-4 months is a long time to wait for most people.

Geforce 1080 is fine for HD monitors, but I'll be waiting for the new gen, cos I've 32"4k. 2-4 isn't long at all. It'll fly past. I mean Xmas was only a couple of days ago....

Or only£443 if you live close enough to collect it.
I have the Palit GTX 1070 Dual and it's a nice compact length- well a few cm shorter then other makes. Also it's quiet and never misses a beat.

I do want to upgrade though but that's just me
If the graphic card alone costs this much... how much would the whole build cost??!! I think I must be poor or missing the point

yeah you're poor all depends on how much you are willing to spend, you can buy a very capable pc for £500 or go all out and spend £1000s

This card is for people who want 1080p/1440p 144fps. Or 4K 60fps on low/medium settings. If you just want a 1080p 60FPS gaming PC. Then you are looking at about £600 uk.pcpartpicker.com/lis…Dq4

Which is not bad. Considering you get to play PC games as well as Microsoft games such as Forza, Gears of War so there is no need for a Xbox or Xbox Live subscription. Plus 20+ years worth of PC games and older console emulation and none gaming stuff.

I'd consider swapping in the i5 8400 for a cheap 1080p 'PC Gaming' rig. You paired a Ryzen CPU with DDR that is 2400 MHz. That's a really bad paring as the Ryzen chips suffer heavily with low RAM frequencies.

There is value in the Ryzen models if you do encoding, but not at the 1600 level, you'd want the 1700 if you did that, it's worth the difference.

If you want to stick with Ryzen, you should aim for around 3000 mhz Ram.

It's a hard sell when you add that 20 quid extra for the RAM...

(First shows the 8400 beating the Ryzen using 3200 mhz RAM, read great RAM.)
(Second talks about bad performance with lower RAM).


TL;DR Don't pair Ryzen with slow RAM. For a gaming rig, Intel offers better value and performance.

To be honest no graphics card can run every game at 1440p 144fps+ (but you will still be seeing some benefit at higher than 60 with a 144hz monitor).

However this is the second best card out there (behind the 1080ti) and can do 1440p 144hz on many games. Obviously you will need to tweak with settings to make sure you are getting the best outcome for your needs e.g. do you want to prioritise visuals or fps (this could even depend on which game you are playing) . This is your preference.

Overall though the 1080 is a very good card and is suited to 1440p 144hz.

I would say to go on youtube and look at some benchmarks for what games you want to be playing and seeing what settings people can get, don't forget some game settings can be changed with little difference in visuals to bump up the fps)

Too difficult to say. There is no official information regarding these cards, so: release dates, prices, performance jumps etc. are all speculation at the minute. Also since we don't know the prices of the new cards and with the volatility of graphics card prices recently due to crypto mining it is difficult to predict what will happen to the prices of current gen cards, a 1080 might not even drop that much for all we know.

Add to this we don't know what the availability of the new cards will be (I suspect demand will be very high as everyone and their mother seems to be waiting!) I wouldn't really be able to say either way.

If you are happy with 1080 performance and it is in your budget then go for it, but it is your decision at the end of the day.
It will do 4K60 on High without Anti-Aliasing for most games when overclocked.
