    HI there


    This is a truly incredible deal, infact it is completely bonkers as this is one of the best and fastest GTX 980's on the market, plus it looks absolutely awesome as well in its all black aesthetics and performance is absolutely mind blowing. Considerably faster than any GTX 970 and not much slower than a reference 980Ti, making its price point absolute spot on at £100 more on average than a 970 and over £100 cheaper than a reference 980Ti and around £150-£200 cheaper than custom 980Ti's. :)



    KFA2 GeForce GTX 980 "8Pack Edition" 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card @ £389.99 inc VAT

    8 Pack branches out further now with his very own graphics card. Aesthetically this is a great looking card with black PCB, Black/Gunmetal cooler, black fans and a black 8 Pack backplate. Enough about the looks this card has a further revised PWM/VRM compared to the original HOF cards. That means even great overclocking potential resulting on average far higher overclocks being made reachable like 1500MHz+ and region of 8000MHz memory clocks (not guaranteed).

    With so much performance on tap out the box, infact this card out the box out performs any other 980 on the market and gets very close to Titan X performance, this card is an absolute beast.

    Remember the perfect companion for the 8 Pack graphics card is of course the worlds most powerful and stable 8 Pack 2000W power supply built by Superflower.

    Palit selling well at £379, this crushes Palit for £10 more, I think it will do well. :)

    I guess the price drops now is due to the lack of MGS?

    But from a value for money point of view now the game has gone the price hasn't really changed as its lost a game that's what £45 on steam? so unless you've got a few copies left to throw in not really much of a deal from a value for money side of things.

    Its not about us having copies left, it is a NVIDIA promotion, so the fact I have a few hundred here is irrelevant, NVIDIA have ended the promotion and what they say is final.

    Probably silly to ask this on this forum: But do you need it? :p

    If your 980 is sufficient just wait until Pascal tbh.

    Would you say the EVGA 750W G2 is going to be good enough to power this card? I only have an i5 4690k and 8Gb 2400Mhz RAM.
