Galax GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX Black 8GB $629 Pick up (Bris) @ Umart

461

Doing my ozbargain civil duty by verifying the graphics card deals that have popped up this morning and came across this at Umart. This price is among the cheapest of the GTX1070s let alone the GTX1070tis which seem to start at $700+ at the moment for local stock.

This card performs significantly better than the GTX 1070, and with a bit of mild overclocking will comfortably match an out-of-the-box GTX1080.

Pick up from Milton in QLD for $629, order in elsewhere, or looks to be another $14 for delivery to a location of your choice.

      What does nVidia have to do with it? Prices are set by the manufacturers and retailers.

          calm down

          nvidia only produce chips & reference card

          3rd party manufacturers also produce their own card with nvidia chips and sell at whatever price they want

          apples & oranges

          you don't see Sony Iphone X , or Motorola IphoneX … do you ?

          Apple controls their supply chain and distribution/sales networks. You don't go into a galaxy shop and buy a galaxy graphics card. Retailers drop prices as they anticipate the new cards coming out soon and are trying to clear their old stock before they are stuck with it.

          @StoneSin this is exactly what im talking about. There's no need to make it personal and tell me to "get smarter"and there was no point where i said you were shitting on me. The shitting on was just an observation from all your other posts. Moreover, there's no need to give that angry attitude. Just argue your opinion in a logical, calm manner and 99% of people will see the sense in it. Unless you're just trying to rack up the downvotes, in which case, nice job :)

        i think he meant retailers, its hard to sell an old product. Once the new one is out

      •  

        So one would also assume manufacturers and retailers are also starting to clear stock. No one wants obsolete inventory that will result in loss of profit and waste of available stock storage space

      I'm not sure why you got begged into oblivion =P

      I mean yeah technically NVidia aren't dropping the prices but the end result is the same. For a casual buyer looking at a new gpu, making the observation that new cards are expected soon is valid!

      I would say Q4 for Aussie stock however is probably realistic.

      • +1 vote

        Because the pricing has nothing to do with what NVidia is doing.

        There were 1080s cheaper than this around the same time last year, yet NVidia didn't drop a new generation of cards on us since.

        Now there are rumours of the next gen coming July, so any drop in price is a confirmation?

        •  

          If Nvidia release a new GPU for $750 RRP, you think that will have zero impact on pricing on existing cards?

          There were 1080s cheaper than this around the same time last year, yet NVidia didn't drop a new generation of cards on us since.

          I guess you didn't hear about the highly publicized skyrocketing price of graphics cards THIS year due to crypto mining.

      Dunno why he's being downvoted, he's correct, manufacturers begin offering rebates to retailers for unsold units as a product's value declines over its life cycle.
      The retailers can then lower the prices and still turn a profit.

        Nvidia are not offering retailers rebates for video cards.

    I've had a bad experience with Umart where they held onto my $2500+ preorder money for a month only to jack up the price of the equipment and tell me that I had to pay the difference.

    I would never buy anything from these dodgy ass idiots.

      I've never had a problem with them despite hundreds of orders.

      I suspect there is a lot more to your story that you're not telling us.

    •  

      That is a valid reason to hate Umart. If that happened to me I would stop using them as well. They need to provide the same price you click "buy" with or it's pitiful.

      Viospeed: you have to know your vendor. Shops like umart are the soup nazi's of the IT world. They operate on razor thin margins for core items and live by supplying bulk.

      Todays price is good for today. You give money, you get product.

      I don't know why you tried to order something a month in advance but if the currency / supplier cost fluctuates a few percent in that time a business like this cannot and will not eat it.

      If you don't want to deal with that, buy from places like computer alliance that have much higher markups to begin with and offer better service.

      Sorry, but you can't have the lowest possible price on items with insanely high shelf depreciation with a no price change guarantee. Nobody works like that.

    It's a bit sad seeing how boring video card boxes have become of late :( https://www.theverge.com/2015/9/9/9274915/graphics-card-boxe...

      Perhaps because the box art out-performed the graphics achievable via the GPU back then, where as it's the other way around now.

      It seems modern card box art is following a similar trend to rock album artwork these days, sorely lacking in tits and wizards.

    •  

      My dad used to run a computer shop, the graphics on the boxes were great back then. I didn’t even realise they all disappeared until you brought this link up…

    Finally prices are coming back to what they were 2 years ago.

      1070ti release date was November 2017, not even 1 year old.

        1070 was 500 about 2 years ago.( what I paid) Today the 1070 is approaching 500 again. Granted the TI hasn't been out that long but it was more a comment of prices in general.

        The market has been crazy distorted thanks to crypto. It still is pretty high but at least it's going down.

        •  

          Yeah, I picked up my GTX 1060 6GB for US$220 (less than AU$300 at the time) when I was in the US in 2016.

          The same card now will set you back almost AU$500 shipped now.

          It's sheer insanity.

    Nice find, prices are going down finally. Now how do we convince eBay people not to pay 640 AUD for a SH mining card ???

  •  

    Which is the better buy between the galax 1070TI ex-oc snpr or the 1080 snpr? Same price?

    Will this run Solitaire or Tetris ?

    buy when you need, not when you want… the graphics cards cycle of price drop before new generation has been happening for the last 20years (around 3dfx days)

    •  

      Not really valid anymore due to GPU mining though.

      •  

        Yep, I reckon there will be very little (read: none) stock available of the new generation cards for several months. The price of the current cards will lower slightly, but it won't be anywhere near as dramatic as previous years.

  •  

    Price is indeed attractive, but do note Galax graphic card warranty is 2 years. Most of other reputable brand offers 3 years warranty.
    For some reason, Umart only put 1 year warranty on their website?

    any deals on 1080ti?
