another GPU 'deal',.... cold
Until GPU prices come back down to normal price ranges I don't think the current discount/offers makes it a good deal.
The jet stream is quieter and cooler along with having an rgb Palit light on the side. However, the card is a lot more bulky taking up 3 slots on your case rather than the usual 2. But in terms of value for money, I’d say yes.
Is it worth £15 more for the "Super Jetstream" version?
Plus if they release a new range of cards ,it will be a refesh mostly things dropping down a tier in the model naming range 1080 = 1170 ,1070 = 1160 etc ,1080ti = 1180 ,with only the 1180ti and above having a real change of hardware + very expensive for top tier this year. Nvidia have a big gain on AMD. That they could take the next two years off ...
I read that is unlikely.
True I've been holding off for ages now so I might as well wait a couple of months
Bought this exact card second hand for £415 on Amazon's Marketplace, fantastic card which easily overclocks to 2070 core 5500 memory on stock power/voltage. I do get a bit of coil whine when it's pushed hard in some games but it's probably 0.5% of the time I've used it for. Perfect card for my monitor at 3440x1440p, 100Hz
With it being summer and new cards announced in September (?) why would anyone buy a 2016 card now? Go outside get some air!
worst fans imaginable on these gigabyte cards (I have the 1080 TI version but the heatsink is the exact same) I've had 2 fail already. The fan assembly is held onto the rotor with a thin piece of plastic, so if your fans run high they just snap off. Also the TIM application is really shoddy and I had to take the card apart to re-apply to get reasonable temps. Wouldn't recommend
Would be a good idea as I've ordered a gaming laptop but I know if I get rid and the laptop is fine I'll not bother getting a new one (lol)
I ignored it but it seems to have a good roadmap and decent dev team behind it, I always thought they just played off the whole irreversibility thing when the DAO was hacked but there’s more to it than that.
Perfect time to flog your current card is now tbh. Even if you have to be without it for a few months.
Regarding crypto mining, I bought a MSi 1080Ti for £750 about a year and half ago, it's for sale now at £850 so not a massive increase but with it being close to the new series coming out..
I realise I might be waiting a long time, but then a long time in crypto world is 12-18 months! Why do people still have anything to do with classic?
Great price. Voted hot
Still profitable but the margins and much much lower. Youve probably missed the boat on it. Plenty of websites around if you search though!
Hi, my query is not be related to this deal. But I wanted to check if anyone does mining? i am interested to do crypto mining, but not sure where to start and how to start. I even dont know whether its profitable in UK based on electricity cost. Any inputs are highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
That and Amazon warranty is what you'd have not deal time IT as it's fulfilled by Amazon so no idea why people would suggest eBuyer.
My point was... why would you prefer? Ebuyer are known for bad service.
That would be a Terabyte. Lowercase b = bit.
Completely agreed! I didn't even notice that it was a refurb. I hold my hands up, bad deal
Would be 'ok' if brand new, but a refurb for £1200 with those specs is not great tbh.
The 6700 is perfectly fine for gaming and will be for a while yet. The SSD is a bit measly for the price though.
A 1 TB HHD is standard in pretty much every gaming laptop.
If I walked up your street with 3 gig I would probably pull your sister,even with an old rig. Go away,Saddact.
This is complete PANTS, the maxwell architecture GTX 970 uses about 60 watts more than a 1060,worst case scenario. (Thats about 0.6 pence / hour or call it 4 quid / year). There is no 'FEW YEARS ' with Nvidia graphics cards : GTX 780; was fortunes. Ya buy a 970 now because it is good value and move on after or you just wilt. A month ago it was £140. (mining caused issues with gamers everywhere) Anybody looks at Ncrappier long term is a f@ffing noob.
I still can't get my head around why people still go on so much about power use of graphics cards, So a 970 uses more power, I'll tell you what, Don't boil your kettle for a whole day, Bingo, We have now offset the extra power usage. What about if you take the day off work, Do you say 'I better not turn on the telly or boil the kettle because normally I would be at work and I have not factored in the extra electricity usage for today' . We all have our average electricity usage which never really changes, One thing uses more, another doesn't, Your at home when you thought you be out, Your out when you thought you would be in, I normally have ten cups of coffee a day, But today I only had two, It all evens out to your average, Which never really changes.
Stop living a Retro lifestyle. 3Gigs might be Ok up your street.
I mean, some people genuinely want small form factor rigs. That's what this card caters for. I don't see the disconnect. These cards serve a very real, very niche portion of the market, and carry a price premium accordingly. Seems fine to me.
or you know wait until you can find it cheaper and keep building the system you wanted in the first place
This card is made for greedy sellers.... if you have a tiny case... u really should not be wasting your money on this.... first priority... get a bigger case.
1080s have been getting close to £400 recently; unless you need the form factor, this is a poor price.
These miniITX cards are great for a very specific purpose, and you should expect to pay more for them. The 1080 is also the highest I would go for an air cooled miniITX card - the 1080ti ones are just too power hungry and too hot to take full advantage of the GPU's capacity IMO. So this is actually a decent card for someone building a high performance SFF build, and one of the highest performing available. And they rightly do come with a slight price premium as the SFF cards are a super niche market which require custom everything (cooler/PCB/etc). All of that said, this is still on the high side of what I would pay for one of these, so I'm not voting. You can get the gtx1070 version for £89 less, which makes this a hard sell. It's not 25% faster. The 1070ti Zotac miniITX model is £60 cheaper too. Anyway ...
Got an MSI Aero 1070 (blower style) for £318.50 this morning - patience pays off! AMD didn’t bother competing and the 1000-series are the most efficient cards you can buy right now, they’re actually at a reasonable price at the moment. Some people don’t want to wait months to play the latest games, or you can buy a card now and also buy a card when the new ones come out - they’re not mutually exclusive!
Those saying wait for the next gen... what if you need a GPU now? Plus even if the 1180 is any good (and it takes a while for reviews to filter through) there is no guarantee it will be available at sensible prices for some time to come. This is one of the cheapest 1080s out there at the moment and it happens to be a decent card as well. Only downsides are that it is very thick and hogs basically 3 slots of the mobo.
Yeah I heard the same. I think it will be interesting nonetheless as we haven’t had much exciting PC news as of late. I hope it’s sometime this year, surely they can’t stretch GeForce 1000-series for 3 years (lol)
Latest rumours are GTX 1180 to launch end of July. Still rumours though unfortunately.
Paid £750 for a new GTX 1080Ti about a year and half ago, seems like a good deal now looking at prices of GPUs considering, heat for the deal too btw.
There seems to be a lot of conflicting information about the screens on these Acer aspire 5’s. The one everyone says is dire is the TN panel which from what I can see the mx150 variant doesn’t come with, Tesco list this as having the ips display whereas all other aspire 5’s they have doesn’t make mention of it. notebookcheck.net/Acer-Aspire-5-A515-51G-7200U-MX150-FHD-Laptop-Review.240090.0.html As noted here the ips variant is actually decent ,if anyone actually has this model from Tesco’s it would be good to get confirmation it does actually come with that ips panel?
Good deal. Much better than the MSI someone posted last week.
Go for this or is a premium of £130 worth it for: https://www.box.co.uk/NX.GP8EK.002-Acer-Aspire-7-A715-71G-53HF_2283341.html
Depends the type of work you are going to be doing on it. Pay no attention to people saying get gaming one they are more bulky. I can see fair few people don't know anything moaning about it not being latest gen if you are going to moan then it should be that it is U version but look at the price this is good offer compared to what else is about. I would suggest staying clear of HP unless you go for the series like elitebook
This is very tempting, as I've been looking at an HP with similar price, although doesn't have the added gaming specs... I'm looking at it for coding though. Is Acer a slightly better make than HP? https://www.ebuyer.com/805720-hp-250-g6-i5-laptop-2sy46es-2sy46es-abu
That “only difference” is a huge difference as well. It’s one of the only things that can’t be upgraded.
But 8k, 12 bit hdr with quad sli with quad xeon is the way to go ;)
But you also got lumped with a 1050ti!
But the graphics card is the only thing that can't be upgraded. 1tb HD v ssd is same cost so just sell one and buy another. Ram makes no difference at that capacity other than bragging rights. 1050ti is significantly slower, which in a gaming machine makes a difference
The only difference is the 1060 swapped for a 1050ti (lol) processors the same, rams better, it's got a 1tb hdd and an ssd. Way better deal
Curry's pc world outlet
There's too many of these dodgy deals on eBay. Id rather buy from a genuine place like scan or something
Someone selling same card for £220 new...£198 with "PICKY10" code https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NE51060015J9-1061D-PALIT-NVIDIA-GEFORCE-GTX-1060-DUAL-6GB/253462638335?epid=1088400612&hash=item3b038ceeff:g:w7UAAOSwDOtamVoB
Good offer have heat
Why does this have negativity?
Yes a 1tb hard drive would push the weight above the advertised 1.2kg
Specs listed on John Lewis don't mention a hard drive, only an SSD - neither do the specs on Asus's site.
Decent price if you're looking for an ultraportable laptop - 1.14kg and according to notebookcheck normal usage with wifi = Battery life 8.5 hours
Not bad for an ultra portable with discrete GPU, voted hot
WIn 10 Home sounds like a good incentive. Problem is, they don't say what the odds are or where the homes are.
i5-7300hq = 4Cores & 4Threads i7HQ = 4Cores & 8Threads...
German keyboard layout too
CPU is quad core, it’s decent
CPU is too weak for this price
Total War is an RTS I assume? Generally speaking, you should always opt for the better GPU if you're using a laptop for gaming, but an RTS is sometimes the exception as they rely on the CPU more. That said, I'd still go with the 1060. I can't imagine it'd have any problem running the game mentioned and it'll run pretty much anything else you need on decent settings
Any good ?
Please do, I'm considering it for gaming
Okay. I've gone for it! Will update with my assessment in a few days.
Great deal. Heat added. Sorely tempted - am after something to do graphics and video editing. This would be pretty good.
I didn't had any problems with msi products before but yeah this card is not the best one out there, seems power hungry , I bought one from Very with this credit code for 409 and my impression is not as good, it is a huge ugly card ... It is ok if you don't look at it ;) I may return it , I have to check terms and conditions ... But for this prise ... Ah ...I wouldn't take it for 10 £ more ...
People really need to stop giving heat to trash 1080 GTX coolers like this. I'd also avoid MSI altogether as both GPU's (Gaming X's) I ordered from them became faulty after just a few weeks. My EVGA SC from 2016 on the other hand continues to be faultless.
The Palit one from OCUK is better value. The MSI cooler on this is pants, they have the same one on much of their range and it can barely cool an underclocked and undervolted RX 570 - bet this’ll run unnecessarily hot and not particularly quiet.
Hello Guys sad to say but i think this card is rly bad because when you touch Clocks temps are going to 80 degrees.For less money you can have 1070ti MSI Gaming 8g with superb cooling and can overlock to stock 1080 performance for only 439 pounds Do not be fooled with low price
It wouldn’t be the first time someone has opened themselves up to a law suit over across the pond? On some level, they must not care for law suits because they will inevitably happen? That’s the perception I have of America and its suing culture.
You seemed to have missed the point. If he lies he can be sued by shareholders. He can toy with the press as long as he says nothing tangible but he did say something specific.
Exactly. The man is toying with the press. No reason or motivation to say anything.
It's a risk for a CEO to lie as he can be sued by share holders. The simple and safe option is to not answer. Why risk it when you can deflect.
