    Worth picking up a used gtx1080 (non reference) for £420 from a friend?

    Im just wondering if its worth picking up a used gtx 1080 (non reference design) from a friend for £420?

    I know the Ti has come out but wondering if this is still a good price for used? From what I've seen they are going for a bit more. This also come with a warranty still.

    I sort of need to make the decision here soon. And even when vega comes out I do not see 3rd party used 1080's (with warranty) being lower priced than this. I'm not really sold on Vega being such a market shaker as the previews say.

    Wow thats a pretty solid yes. I dont think he would take any less as he's using the money to fund a car. Thanks for the response, do you think at 430 I would get my monies worth for a couple years of 1440p ultra/high (rare 4k) gaming? I've been stuck using an older card for a while and am not the most up to date with whats out there, what makes you be so confident about this (just curiosity on my part)?

    Yeah you will get two years out of it at 1440p easy not saying maxed out but definitely close to.

    ​aw dude sorry man had a few too many vodkas and was just shooting the sh*t although my theory is sound. if i was wantin £420 from a friend, and said friend is in front of me saying all i could get is £390 i would say "well after ebay and paypal fees this is what im gonna get anyway" then as said i would rip his effin arm off. just ma two pence worth.

    LOL gotcha, so thats a go for it at 420 then? He was actually going to put it up everywhere for 470, then said he'd be fine with taking £50 off for me for the less hassle.

    Awesome thanks, thats really what i wanted to know, and seems like you're not saying anything about the price so thats decent also.

    You could easily pick one up for the same amount on ebay. So if they are a friend they are being rather tight. No way could they clear £420 after PayPal fees etc.

    Well I paid over £600 for mine on release so yeah, the price is great.

    Also to add to the above, you would have less problems with a friend in the event of it breaking down the road.

    Thanks I went for it, was a big plus that it was a friend vs ebay/gumtree. Looking forward to getting it set up!
