A couple of the Palit models are a few quid cheaper but this offers an extra 3 years of warranty plus UK-based RMA and servicing for less than a fiver.

Really well reviewed card, available immediately and generally a bit cheaper than the Founders Edition ones.

Good deal more so for being in stock if nothing else. Have you warmed to the 1070 card now? you seemed venomously against them at £20 more. I was looking through scan and overclockers and the weak pound has ruined their pricing. some crazy prices

£400, for those without the daft "delivery membership".

Yes. I was totally wrong and I don't mind admitting it. Unless you're looking at 4k then it is probably going to be the way forward I think.

Incidentally, I don't think the £ Forex rate is to blame for OCUK and Scan's pricing. OCUK in particular were already inflating the prices of these 10 series cards way before the Brexit vote. It's just greed more than anything else really.

Good price but be careful with that company, they are awful.
what changed your mind out of interest? I have the msi gaming x 1070, but preordered the 1080 amp extreme for £575 on Amazon because it seemed such a good deal, rather than going 1070 sli some time in the future. I'm on 1440p 144hx monitor

Honestly. This PCGamer article more than anything else.

pcgamer.com/the…ew/

Also I have had a nightmare of a time with the 1080 order that I placed over a month ago with Amazon and I think fate was trying to tell me that I wasn't meant to have one. From what I read over the weekend, the 1080 is only really worth the extra if you are interested in VR or have some 4k aspirations.

Are you going to be selling your 1070?
will put it on here first if I do, not totally decided yet
A few days ago there was a Maplin deal for gtx1070 Msi X card for £420, which is out of stock now. With Quidco/topcashback at 4% to get better deal.
However a few nights ago on same site, I saw the gtx1070 Msi Armor for £390. The above cashback site could be used to get £15.off.

The Nationwide simply 4% Maplin cashback needs to be activated and it seems you can't easily combine with Quidco for a bigger cashback.

That's a damn good deal. I've ordered this card from Amazon for £375 but I am tempted to cancel and pick that up from Maplin since they promise instore collection within 3 days and there's a Maplin not far from my office.

How are MSI warranty wise? My motherboard is MSI but obviously I didn't pay almost 400 quid for that.
I am unsure with MSI warranty wise. I thought they were one of the better aftermarket card makers.
I only read the difference between Armor card and higher tier X card will be backplate, not the latest torx fan and maybe a 8 pin power.

This Zotac model does have a backplate although most aftermarket cards usually don't, especially cheaper ones as you say. The Zotac also offers an extra 2 years of warranty and higher factory clocks but the childish idiot in me is considering the MSI Armor so I can get it sooner. X)
30cm in length! That's pretty big!
I have waited long enough too for this card. Ordered the Armor earlier for store pick up. Also try my luck with Nationwide cashback too.

Ahhh. To be fair I have only used aftermarket cards for the last few years so I'm used to be a bit of extra girth and my 970 did have 3 gigantic fans on it.

Sounds like a plan. I think I'm going to stick with the Zotac now but that price is definitely good for the MSI Armor. It seems to be at least £410 everywhere else.

I might just go with the reference card tbh. They exhaust air out of the back of the case which is better for my ITX set up anyway. Not a whole lot of airflow inside the case generally

The overclock potential for these new cards is much lower than the last gen so the incentive is less to go with aftermarket, but at this price its hard to argue. Reference cards tend to be a bit noisier is all.

That was exactly what my mate said. There doesn't seem to be the substantial savings on offer for aftermarket vs FE atm either so it's really just a case of choosing what you like the look of.

I ideally wanted an aftermarket version because I like having higher base clocks but don't really enjoy overclocking myself.

Just wait, is all I can suggest. A lot of prices will start to drop once stock becomes plentiful. At the moment shops are struggling to get hold of stock and when they do it sells out fast, so they see no reason to drop prices.

I plan to wait another month and then probably buy one. I've seen 1070's for £370's~ and 1080's for £560's~, but the price does seem to fluctuate quite a bit.

Don't bite the bullet yet, if you can wait.

To be honest, if you shop around or exploit certain vouchers/cashback etc then these can now be had for around £360-380 and I can't see them realistically hitting that sort of price normally this side of Christmas tbh.

I bought my last card (970) last March for around £240 and they're still that price now.

Not great. Rma'd a Z77 mpower mobo twice, first time they forgot about it and needed reminding after 28 days at which point they sent me a refurbished that was fairly scratched, 2nd time they forgot until reminded after 28 days and couldn't get a replacement so just gave me £60 for my troubles. Which was less than half the value of the board new and less than what faulty versions sold for on eBay. Bought an Asus board whilst waiting which has been super stable.

As someone who runs a shop, you're having a giggle if you think the profit margin on this is less than 10%. Shops are making far more cash on this than £30 lol

I'd imagine £60-70 at a minimum.
Spark

I honestly doubt that.



It will probably go sub £350, at some point, especially when people see how good the 1060 is and when AMD release the 490.

I wouldn't expect £300 or less. At £330-340 for a high quality brand name, I'd bite. The difficulty I'm having at the moment is whether to go for the 1070 or 1080. Only 17-20% difference in performance, but if the price difference is only a little over £150~ it's £10 per % increase. Tough call.
Never implied profit margin was 10%.
Profiteering: disproportionately large or grossly unfair profit, generated often through manipulation of prices, abuse of dominant position, or by exploiting a bad or unusual situation such as temporary scarcity.

That was a tough choice for me too but I decided on the 1070 in the end. I don't have a 4k monitor and have zero interest in VR so there wasn't really much that the 1080 could give me to justify the extra £150-200 cost apart from the obvious virtual **** extension.

Depends on the shop I think. If it's Amazon or PC World then it won't be a huge profit but the likes of OCUK add their own markups and charge pretty much whatever the hell they like.

It sounds like you are trying to justify your purchase at >400 quid...

The card is absolutely going to drop to around 330 for x-mas. That's MSRP, and cards are only selling above MSRP because there is so much demand right now.

I just don't get how you think this price won't drop to even the "360-380" range on this side of X-mas. I think you are giving short sighted purchasing advice which basically reads "Buy now, it won't get cheaper".
Is anyone worried about the possible Brexit price hikes? OCUK have stated 5-10% increase in price (I think they mentioned passing 2% price increases throughout their website, not sure if this has happened or is yet to happen). I think Dell and HP are planning 10% increases in prices in (circa) august. I'm not 100% on this information, so don't take my word for it. But this is my reason against waiting for price drops.
