Pre-order only. Not in stock. I've had this and a few others on pre-order for a few weeks (possibly not this exact one) and had no updates or delivery estimate for any. I don't care which, I just want any now Vega is a waste of time and power

Overclocker have 1060s in stock 180 to 240
People need to stop moaning - even the cheaper deals Overclockers UK were doing on the GTX1060 6GB were limited to 1000 units which soon sold out. I have done pre-order deals before from Amazon and so have friends,and have got big discounts on many items. Even the best deals on the GTX1070 now from companies such as Ebuyer are pre-order too.

If you can't wait,then pay the extra for an overpriced card which is in stock.

Miners have screwed it all up for gamers!

All 3GB cards - the cheapest 6GB has gone from £229.99 to £269.99,so this is still cheaper:

overclockers.co.uk/pc-…060


Gibbo from OcUK said the 6GB offer was only limited to a 1000 units and apparently they are all gone now.

They are also charge £10 for postage unless you post a lot on their forums whereas Amazon do free postage.

As you are also fully aware,the GTX1060 3GB also has 10% of its shaders lopped off when compared to the superior 6GB model.

Unless you are in an utter rush,I would order it - Amazon don't take money until the day they dispatch the item,so you can cancel the pre-order if a better deal comes up!

How hypocritical - because ultimately gaming achieves absolutely nothing, also isn't tangible (?) yet mining and securing the blockchain networks is actually helping your future, whether you like it or not cryptocurrency is here to stay - for miners, investors and even end-users.

And it's arguable that spending more money on GPUs for gaming and/or mining actually allows it to be funnelled back into R&D which benefits everyone.
Pre-Order , I have been waiting months for my MSI 1070 , pre-order is almost a joke these days with Amazon.

Depends what you're doing with it and what games but if it were me, I wouldn't bother
Moved from console gaming to pc in 2013. Currently still have a 290x lightning which does me fine. Starting to feel if this card packs up I'll be moving to consoles. Just can't be bothered with these crazy priced gpu's.

There was a deal post for a Nikon 35MM lens for £180 last month which is normally £450. I waited a month and got it last week. They only took money on the day of despatch.

Was that the deal from Amazon.de? Mine arrived last week and MSI cashback was approved. The downside to Amazon only taking payment on dispatch is that the exchange rate was worse by the time it was sent, so that's something to watch if ordering from a foreign Amazon.

Absolutely nothing? I'm sure there's something, such as creativity, inspiration. You could even attribute some gaming to learning. Much more valuable than "money"

Helping my future? I seriously doubt it. I help my future in much better ways, like learning, understanding and thinking. Money is always a by-product.

What R&D is being conducted with these miners? I last read, they were looking for SHA2 collisions, not really that helpful in the grand scheme of things.

No But I had ordered one of them also , but ended up canceling ...it was the MSI Sliver Gaming X full size GTX 1070 , I originally posted the deal up on the site.....many others though have had their card before me and I posted the deal , so I assume I was in the cue before them!!!!! anyway new dispatch date today 21st of August....we shall see .....

Like you I also moved from console to pc a few years ago. Was the best thing i had ever done and enjoyed a range of different games with improved graphics. I then started to get parts packing up and changed my gpu but had serious combatibility issues leaving me with constant problems, games cutting out, poor optimisation and crashes. Got sick of it and realised I was paying much more. I switched back to console, to a PS4 and soon realised whilst certain games didnt quite look as good I enjoyed the range of games not available on PC more rather then the other way round (uncharted, horizon z dawn, until dawn, etc) I was back to enjoying games again and my rather expenisve pc is now building up dust!

I think that's more likely just what you tell yourself but ultimately it has less value than cryptocurrency (as a whole). And if you can't see the future in blockchain technology, even as a user of it then I guess you'll have to just wait, see and look back in 5-10 years. I mean, you do realise that's why they are starting to regulate it, because as a decentralised currency, it's largely free from corruption, manipulation, inflation, counterfeiting and all the other things you associate with 'money'.

As a former gamer and someone who does it casually now, there is honesty little value in it - people hide behind the internet but actually it's pretty rife with bullying, taunting and escapism from the real world. There is nothing creative or inspirational about gaming, it's an arbitrary world someone else created for you - I am not denying it's fun, but at some point you weigh up the opportunity cost of fun vs. reality. I'm also not saying you shouldn't game or spend your money on GPUs, I'm just saying I think it's incredibly ironic to say cryptocurrency is a waste of electricity for an intangible item (and let's face it, most fiat currency is digital, can you remember the last time you paid with cash vs. contactless or card?) when gaming is probably worse.

And R&D in future graphics and compute technology which improves your future generations of graphics cards - I thought that was pretty obvious. In fact I suspect you are the only person who thought I meant researching crypto algorithms or mining... Also SHA-256 is for Bitcoin, the algorithms differ, but as we're talking GPUs, you're probably most annoyed at Ethereum which is Dagger-Hashimoto.

The end result of decentralized currency is fine, but what exact benefit does *mining* have on the world?

Why is it better to send them cycles of GPUs instead of SET or some other folding place?

Why do we care about the crypto portion of this decentralized currency?

Isn't it just arbitrary and, as put, a waste of electricity?

Do you have a better way of handing out the tokens then? The crypto part is kind of arbitrary, yes, and as you commented in another thread you probably know the end-game of Ethereum will be in PoS not PoW (gamers rejoice). The crypto portion is important because it's self-securing, you can't modify part of the blockchain or data without interfering with the rest. If it was computationally easy, anyone smart or computer-skills with a mobile phone or netbook and hacking skills could do it.

I think you can argue that mining (certain) precious metals for the sake of jewellery is equally as pointless; no intrinsic value and 'it's only worth what someone is willing to pay'.

Because mining encourages the sale of GPUs, it does encourage more development and research into faster computation which ultimately benefits everyone.
So tempted to get this, prices on ebay are in this range or up second hand, so it's likely to hold quite a bit of value until I find a suitable replacement some 6-18 months down the line.

When Eth goes PoS, which I understand is this year, will this keep it's value at all? Or will the whole market come crashing down? Surely there's always SOMETHING to mine with a GPU, right?
Scan shows release date 14th September. Seems strange they have to rerelase all these cards due to no stock. Absolutely bonkers.

This seems a good price? How does it compare to the 1060?

Main issue on these cards seem to be heat compared to the 1060 cards. Albeit the 1060 cards are grossly over priced. Albeit after 5 years how much more have you spent on electricity powering the 580 cards?

Will a gold rated 650 watt PSU be enough for this card.

You can get the Nitro+ model on Amazon too for £240ish. The reviews I have read suggest this should retail for $225. So add 20% vat take off 30% for dollar gives around £200. Cheapest history price I found was £210 in last 1-2 years.

I think those of us invested in it (me, for one and by it I mean the actual holding of cryptocurrency) and believers don't think it will crash down as such. I would buy a GPU now if you can enjoy it for gaming, but maybe you can re-purpose it for some light mining when you're not gaming. I know of many gamers who game and mine (when not gaming) and basically pay for their card this way. If it's not Ethereum, you have Monero (XMR), Zcash (ZEC), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Decred (DC), Siacoin (SC), etc. there are hundreds of altcoins to look into but those would be my picks.
Volta will also arrive in new year. I updated my post above. Slow posting.

Main concern is power usage and am I over doing it for a casual gamer? 650watt power supply gold rated.

Also I read these cards use an 8 and 6 pin connector?

Me too, I got a 1070 for less than £300 from The Amazon Warehouse in the end. You gotta be quick to get those tho.
Bought 24 for 2 new mining rigs
See what people mean about gpus in short supply. Trying to buy 3 decent graphics cards (but refuse to overpay). The 1080 preorder on amazon only allows 1, and no definiate date. I missed the awd deal, and this has no date.

Ordered 3 1050ti and will return them in a few weeks while I wait for something better to appear.
Took the plunge and ordered one. Will go nicely with my new Ryzen build I am setting up this weekend. Hopefully 650 watts will be enough. These cards look to be 12 inches long. Hopefully have room in my Fractal design r4 case.
Bit the bullet, thank you.
is there a mini version of this card ? looking for an upgrade from my 4gb 270x

That is fine, 6-pin is 75W and 8-pin is 150W plus the PCIe slot another 75W so that's 300W max realistically for your card and it's unlikely the rest of the system will use the rest of your power budget. As long as it's a good branded 80 Plus Gold supply, have seen enough faked 'certified' ones or random brands - who makes yours
