    We did that purely out of goodness of our hearts as had around 100 in stock so gave gamers a chance, now its hard to keep the stock above ten units hence why they are so expensive. Keep pushing all suppliers for more stock but when they ship you 8pc, 12pc, 6pc here and there it makes it very hard to keep them in stock even at stupid prices let alone do deals.

    The Inno3D at £750 is a good deal as the X3 is a good card. Plus a deal on the Strix would now be in the £800's as our new cost pricing is now higher and thus prevents us hitting £750 any more.

    with the £ doing better and better against the dollar specifically i can imagine prices will drop more. no need to panic buy.

    Already taken into account, otherwise how else do you think we got 8700k sub £300, only made possible by the stronger pound and only just too, likewise on the memory and SSD deals, the stronger pound has helped us a lot. :)

    Remember back in 2016 when the 1070 could be had for under £350!

    Nice deals, GPU wise it's like going back in time! Any chance of a little discount on the retail 8700K and Z370 boards? Also are the first gen Ryzen chips dropping?

    Cheers.

    At least gold doesn't get outdated!
    Yeah at this rate I'm starting to just keep old hardware, no point in upgrading when components are getting so expensive, desktop isn't dying it's the pricing that is killing it.

    £380 for my vega 56 in August at launch.. if ever there was a good piece of timing that was it for me! Still, nice to see the prices relaxing a bit.

    Great prices on the Nvidia cards, shame you can't get AMDs down further, still laughable those.
