Yes true from that perspective I’m still unsure if I wait or buy now haha. £259 is a lot for something that should realistically be £170 like you say and maybe even less if the new series comes out. My question would be - what’s the difference with all these different makes like ASUS and MSI and gigabyte and stuff?
Sorry, not an expert. There’s a cheaper 1060 on amazon warehouse deals just now, also 6gb. Condition described as ‘acceptable ‘. I bought a ‘good’ one recently and it was immaculate. Warehouse deals have decent warranty and returns policy. Could be worth a punt. Check reviews online first. https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-TURBO-GTX1060-6G-GB-Graphics-Card/dp/B01IPFMVCQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1529755412&sr=8-9&m=A2OAJ7377F756Pπ=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=gtx%2B1060&th=1&psc=1
Find a rumour intimating when the global shortage on DRAM will end, that's when prices on GPUs will drop. Realistically, this GPU should be priced at £170! When you think you can get a PS4 - a complete gaming machine with CPU, PSU etc all included, with AAA games thrown in for that sort of price, it puts the price of PC GPUs in to perspective.
:/NO , i'd wait for the 11xx series .. massive power increases over the existing two year old designs, your 660ti is already owned by the Binsling corp. (embarrassed) No I don't really know .. NVidia have a huge backlog of GPU's to sell , so they may delay release till they can ascertain what demand will be like Gamers VS Crypto etc .Xmas is coming tho .. preceded by Black Friday .. but then again the £GBP vs EUR vs $USD may be in a dire straits by then :/ PS I am awaiting my free TITAN CEO
Do you mind if I pick your brain about the card if that's OK as you sound like you know what you're on about! I saw this one on Amazon: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01IPFN7UQ/?coliid=I1S4W3UGZ6YY4K&colid=3U7FTHUOBITFL&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it how does it compare to the one OP linked? What are the differences between all these brands selling the same card as its a bit confusing!? My 600ti looks to have already bottomed out on ebay haha, would get £20- £30 if I'm lucky!
