[Price Error] ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG STRIX Graphics Card - €315 (~AU $482) Shipped @ Amazon FR

Moved to Forum: Original Link

Shipping included in the $482 (based on current exchange rate) Seems very cheap to me. Out of stock but will be shipped when in stock. My first post, hopefully it's helpful.

    Can anyone chime in based on past experience whether they think amazon will fulfill this order?

    Edit: price increased to 351 euro

    • +11 votes

      $351 includes VAT

      Not on this particularly but I have never had Amazon not fulfil and a couple of thing I got really cheap (expensive brake rotors shipped from USA for under $100)

    •  

      I’ve got Amazon cancelled my order a few times, sometimes even without any notification and I only found out by myself when checking the order status. Have been talked to their CS team a few times for different matters, pretty bad customer support and experience in general THB.

      • +1 vote

        Wow - us store? I have only had amazing customer service. Even if they have started out poorly amazon support ultimately bend over backwards. But that's just my experience (at least 7 years)

        •  

          what are some examples of bending over backwards? from what i've seen so far, there have been plenty of order cancellations and some without notification as well, just based on many comments recently. Glaymore being one

        •  

          I tried ordering an SSD from the french store last year. They canceled the order after the price increased.

        •  

          I had orders from their different stores, Japan one being the best especially the packaging, and Germany is also quite good at least I never had any of my orders cancelled by them.

          Italy store is the worst, had 2 orders from them and both got lost in the middle of transit, WTF… and I reached the courier trying to find out what’s going on and they stated they never received the item from Amazon Italy but only an electronic notification or what ever you call it.

          US store was quite good before, I also had ordered from them for at least 6 years, but I started having issues with them recently, and lots of shit happened.

      •  

        Could the difference be because the item was being sold by a third party instead of Amazon itself?

        •  

          I had shit happened for both the items sold by Amazon and other 3rd party retailers, but keep in mind all of them are Amazon prime which means they are fulfilled by Amazon.

        •  

          @Glaymore:

          Ahhh. Sorry to hear that. I guess it isn't all roses then for everyone. But I'd like to share that my Amazon experiences have been quite excellent - there weren't a lot of them though.

    I had a previous item on back order and eventually got automatically cancelled. Good luck hope you get one.

    Bought one. Let's see if they actually fulfill it. If so then I've got SLI GTX 1080s or a spare one for eBay.

    Also OPs price is correct. Paid €315,46

    Anyone know what ASUS are like with international warranty claims?

      From my experience Asus are absolutely abysmal with local warranty in Australia let alone internationally .

      0 chance of obtaining local warranty from Asus.

      Anyone having first hand experience with asus international warranty?

      • +9 votes

        Yes, this was a recent reply:


        As you might be aware, that the GPU was not sold in Australia, and ASUS GPU not apply global warranty, so this GPU will be considering with out of warranty.

        Please be noticed, for out of warranty (OOW) service, there are four terms and condition will need to be aware as below

        1. Handing/inspection fee ($44.00 AUD) will be applied, it is not refundable
        2. Repairable parts/materials costs will be charged after inspection
        3. Fixed item, will be given three months extended warranty after the date of return
        4. No Guaranty on repairing the problem

        If you consider sending faulty unit for OOW service, we would like to apply first handing/inspection fee on you and then you can send it to service center for next procedure.

          Not worth the risk in that case I guess, given cheapest gtx1080 on ozbargain was $623

        • +2 votes

          @roy18: I don't value the warranty at $140. Do you?

      •  

        Actually quite clear on the Asus website. International warranty only on laptops.

        Ebay don't own Paypal anymore, they split last year. But are still in bed with each other.

          Heh aren't they a match. Love them both until I have to sell sth. Charge me an arm and a leg and still shove all those ads up my face. Urgh. Bet you can tell I was selling stuff today.

        Thought they did but I could be wrong, just so used to using paypal these days.

  • +9 votes

    This is an insanely good price. Paid (slightly) more for my Inno3D 1070 (read: the cheapest 1070 I could get)
    I'd buy one of these if I wasn't still waiting for a replacement card (got compromised somehow, haven't even used it on any sketch websites without going through PayPal recently)

      You paid more than $730 for a 1070 recently?

        AUD $482, according to the title / Google's conversion rate. I paid $487 for my 1070 (using PUNCH, I think)

    Amazing price, but very unlikely to be fulfilled, both considering the price, and considering this is the older non-OC model.

    This is a random question but I'm waiting for my PC without a graphics card to arrive. This graphics card requires a 8pin and 6pin power connector. The seller said that the psu should have 2 8pin power connectors available. Usually will 8 pin cables be able to split into a 6pin connector so that my GPU can run?

    Thanks

    • +1 vote

      My one has one 8 pin split up into 6+2 pin, so my guess is yes

      •  

        Thanks. Not sure if the 6+2 splitting was the norm.

        •  

          You should be fine and if you know you'll have 2qty 8pin connectors then worst case you'll be able to sort it with a converter cable like this one.. 8pin Molex to 6pin cable

        •  

          @Joku: Thanks. Are 'cheap' converter cables recommended or reliable enough to power such expensive graphics cards?

        •  

          @shot: Had 980Ti running off one on an older PSU, was all good for me.

    • +2 votes

      some psu's (both of mine) have 6+2 pin connectors for the graphics cards, basically you can use them for both 8 and 6, the extra two slide off…

      Did you separate the orders? Otherwise you could get slugged with 10% import tax since it's over $1K

      More likely a price error

      •  

        you are probably right, expecting a cancellation then, at least they are not charging your card right now

      • +1 vote

        Doubt it's a price error. If it does get cancelled, it will be because asus can't supply demand. Good luck either way!

      I sincerely hope not

    bought 1 for $501.15 with combank master card, thanks op, hopefully they dont cancel the order

    •  

      Man im getting scared, no warranty man, seems like alot of hassle, but such a good price, only if this was a evga card

  •  

    Highly sceptical that this will be fulfilled given that nVidia's new line is still six months away, as is the expected GDDR5 due to Samsung ramping up production.

    Good luck to all!

    • +1 vote

      Wow. A whole six months. But surely prices will steadily decrease.

      •  

        Well GDC isn't until the end of March, and they'll likely announce there. Given the RAM price drop, you'd expect them to delay until they get some of that stock, so it all makes for an early H2 release.

      It includes VAT in the listing, but it's taken out upon ordering because you're shipping outside the EU.

          Why wouldn't they buy more than four if that was their intention?
