pretty good price for evga 1080 (for current gpu prices at least…)
Geuine question, are these things really loud to run? Have they improved on noise reduction since the old days?
apparently this cooler is pretty quiet
I have the FTW version on stock and no.
I have this card and it is quiet.
My evga 1070 doesn't even need to use its fans, so yes.
Then you aren't pushing it hard enough!
Are these going to come down much more?
we find out when amd launches their shit in 2 days.
which depends on their pricing
tbh vega isn't really shaping up to be competitive. hopefully i'm wrong tho
you propery right mate ;)
From what I understand the Vega 56 will better than a 1070 but not as good as a 1080 and be priced accordingly. But we will see
So I should wait for a better deal?
I would. AMD are shaking up the market and if nothing else people will be selling older cards for cheap to upgrade to AMDs latest.
Good price! Shame my 1080 finally arrived from Kogan haha
Does this one has RGB?
Neg for asking RGB…
You will want the FTW version.
Thanks~ I don't have any RGB in my PC, so really want something that can light up.
I see. Just make sure your PC case has clear side window panel. No point having RGB video card if you cannot see the inside.
Does this come with Destiny 2
Ask amazon support, when I bought a 1070 they said yes it came with the game, in the end it didn't (was only amazon.ca) and I got a refund on my graphics card
this is now down to 499
Was that to start with, need to add freight…
Resisting the gigabyte offer was hard and this is going to be even harder.
Do you expect the prices to go down further?
Theres no harm in waiting for vega launch, worst case senario prices stay the same
There is always a chance it can drop to that $600 range and if not then I will just wait for it to come around again. Unfortunately I doubt the $500+ price will appear again for at least another year or so, that's one I wont wait for.
mannnnn, im so tempted!
So… should the Vega be more or less powerful than the 1080 for the 1080 prices to theoretically go down?
Not really Nvidia might lower its price to draw sales away from the vega especially if it performs better.
the 1080 will go down if vega offers comparable performance to the 1080 at a lower cost
Should I buy this now or wait for next gen NVIDIA Volta cards?
You'll be waiting a while but if youre not gaming past 1080p then id stick with a 1070 or lower
How much does a 1070 cost approximately nowadays? I will be gaming at 2560x1080 with my ultrawide monitor btw.
they're still pretty expensive rightnow cause of the shortage. I just sold my one second hand for $500 but new ones would cost $650 so youre better off going with this deal. Unless of course you dont mind waiting out the shortage then you can probly get one around the $500 mark
I ordered a 1070 from newegg for roughly $580 including shipping.
If your UW monitor has freesync, AMD might be the better choice.
There will always be better technology around the corner. Instead of waiting you could be enjoying the card now.
Heh, MuffinLion and GossipGoat
Hmm im pondering. I need (more like want) a new graphics card and monitor. Freesync monitors seem to be a few hundred dollars cheaper than Gsync. I wonder whether for me getting vega will be better as if they are more expensive i will save money on a freesync monitor
? Please explain
? What jack
@wlqrichard: Im so confused
That will be all jack, thanks.
No unless you intend to sli amd cards. They are too weak on their own except on high res.
I think you mean crossfire
Umm if you don't mind waiting a few days, I would definitely wait for vega and get a free sync monitor, you would probably save $200-300.
Thanks, thats the kind of answer i was looking for
Some people were probably confused because there was no question mark in your initial comment.
What's the GST/customs threshold for importing stuff into Australia ? We get pinged for anything over 400nzd
So I didn't actually need to put "gift" on all my under 1000 dollar orders to fool customs?
Has this deal expired already? It's showing up at $596.72 US without postage.
Yeah its out of stock
Literally just bought at EVGA 1080 for $720 yesterday. Was going to get a Gigabyte 1080 for about $670 but EVGA have a global warranty, gigabyte don't.
Would these be ok in the Dell XPS 8920 computers that everyone bought recently? I imagine you could sell a 1070 for at least $500.
I sold my 1070 for $500. I would suggest you check the dimensions as some of the 1080 cards are fairly bigger than 1070s
nice. how long ago? gumtree or ebay?
I thought they would be the same size… also it would depend how much power the 1080 uses and what temps it runs at.
More research is needed!
edit* they have the exact same dimensions and recommended power supply.. interesting.
Sold it this morning actually on gumtree haha. Depends on the model too, stuff like the asus strix are massive
still appeared my my cart as 499 so panicked and bought, thanks OP.
Hope they dont get cheaper with the release of the VEGA cards.
Dw, I'll be sure to wear my best rape face when they do when I buy one for Destiny 2.
FYI 499 is the launch RRP for this - so if you can wait it should come down with new AMD releases and when supply improves.
May be a few months though
If you wait 10 years it should be worth about $5
This is quite obvious no? AMD tech is releasing in a matter of days so this could be pertinent information for someone not in a rush.
Also the new AMD stuff is supposedly really good for mining, so hopefully that will also mean the Nvidia card prices/demand will go down.
But hopefully it does drop to a satisfactory price within the next few months
