Prices dropping finally. Time machines still not available so sorry it's not as cheap as when dial-up internet was the norm
I would still wait before buying a graphics card. I have noticed a lot of sites have slowly started to reduce the price of their graphics card now. Still not cheap enough for me to bother.

Heat from me, thanks @Jeremy.Clark

Agreed, but I have a feeling that if there is a rebound in crypto currency prices the card price could spike again. Also I think nvidia and AMD would be stupid (all be it annoying to consumers) if they priced their next line of cards sensibly and didn't take advantage of the inflated prices.

If you guys are all so happy to wait so long for GPU prices to drop then I've got a banging deal for you. A Radeon X300 XT for only £100!

No deal. Can get a 970 (equivalent to a 1060) second hand for that money!
Good price for 1070ti.

I'm thinking of getting a second 1080 now that the prices dropped. Or should I wait and get 1180 instead??

Think it might be worth waiting a bit and seeing what happens to 1080ti price, maybe get one with the aim to get a second and SLI them up

Is anyone seriously using or considering SLI or Crossfire these days? I always believed it never really lived up to expectations and that's why you rarely see it mentioned, also what needs that kind of power?

The GPU market has gone the same as that of mobile phones. Increasing prices with every model, thereby artificially inflating the price of the previous generation(s). Throw in Crypto threats etc & it's even worse. Era of cheap GPU's are over.

Soon it's going to be considered a total bargain to get a new GPU at anything under MSRP, never mind grabbing a genuine discount on one.
If this would only drop a little lower I would bite! Thanks for posting anyway.

No worries dude! Glad I've posted a decent deal for a change. Snapped up enough bargains posted by others

Yes. A second GTX 970 was 1/4th the price of upgrading to a 10 series card during the price spike, and upgrading to a 980 gives minimal gains. I used to use SLI with a pair of laptop GTX 680Ms and it was really worthwhile when it worked. I'd say cost-effectiveness is the main reason to use dual graphics cards at the lower end, if two cheap cards can beat one expensive card and cost less overall (and they can, GTX 970 is a great example) then it's worth doing.

As for what needs the power of a top end sli setup where you buy the most expensive GPUs and pair them, eh, you can buy 4K monitors for £200 each now and top end single GPUs struggle to hit 60fps on ultra settings at that resolution.

Everyone needs this kind of power!!!! My 1080 struggles to go past 100fps on the most recent titles at max settings, and as I have a 1440p 144hz monitor m extra fps goes a long way. The only game I can hit 144fps and over is Overwatch and Destiny 2, but who cares about D2 anyways?

I didn’t doubt it’s faster, I just thought the scaling was bad and both companies were planning to put an end to it - can’t remember where I read it. Also it’s a lot of heat and ventilation against one card. I had machines and setups with more than one card before but it wasn’t the norm for me. I was curious more than anything; beyond forums, I’ve never seen or met anyone with a dual GPU system that’s all.

Scaling of two cards in SLI isn't that bad for decently optimised games. It's not uncommon to get 1.8x performance two-way SLI. However 3-way+ tends to be diminishing returns.

Crossfire and SLI are still there, the physically separate interconnect is going away though. PCI-E is fast enough these days that you don't really need it.

The cynic in me says that it helps sell higher end, higher profit margin GPUs too. Why combine two cheap cards that nvidia makes $10 on when you could buy one expensive GPU that nvidia makes $300 on!

Yeah I went and educated myself on it - people were saying it was dead when they stopped with 3 and 4 way SLI but obviously it’s not. I remember tinkering with it years ago and it was such a hassle trying to get it to work well (optimised games as you say) for about 50% gain that I just decided not to bother properly again, sounds like they’ve improved it a lot.

I know the physical link isn’t there any more, at least I hadn’t seen it for a while - maybe that’s because I’m firmly AMD because of the scarcity of nVidia and AMD hasn’t had it in ages. Maybe I’ll give it another go sometime though the PCs I game on (infrequently) have an R9 Fury and RX Vega and I don’t have 4K or 120/144Hz monitors so I am on the limit anyway, it might be wasted on me!
