    I'll let you into a secret. If you stick to 1080p like me. GPUs are a bargain! (well, actually still obscene because of mining) I sold my 480 for £350 and paid £219 for my 1060. YOLO

    Am I right in thinking Decent 1080's can be had from proper retailers around the £450 mark? Then who in their right mind is buying a Vega 64 (which trades blows) at £550?? Am I the only sane person left? Is it miners then?

    Lets get one thing crystal clear here!

    Launch MSRP $499, a $100 reduction for launch, regular MSRP of $599, check a site such as newegg for confirmation:
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod...BESTMATCH&Description=RX+VEGA&N=-1&isNodeId=1

    UK launch MSRP £449, a £100 reduction, yes we got a full £100 which worked favourably and much cheaper than you can buy one from US, remember US is excluding taxes. Now launch pricing is finished, so £549 which falls in line with $599 MSRP.

    Sure if you like 1080p at < 100 FPS. Like 40-55 FPS mostly.

    Even for 100Hz 1080p the 480/1060 doesn't cut it. Heck even for guaranteed 60 FPS minimums the 480/1060 isn't enough, at 1080p.

    If you know where to look it's easy to not pay tax on a lot of online purchases. I'm not saying its legal or ethical but its easy and common place.

    I've got a Gigabyte 1080 OC WF3 on order for just under £460 should be arriving in the next couple of days. AMD have lost another customer, can't remember the last time I had a NV card it was so long ago.

    Im confused. $499 = £550 now?
    Man I thought the $1 to £1 was a raw deal.

    EDIT: Just checked, yup, US retailers are typically selling for $499.

    GPU prices are insane. At least they did a run of £450. Didn't have to, will all sell out at £550.

    I do feel your pain though.

    The fact it was £100 cheaper than every other UK retailer for the first X sold and Gibbo said as much in the launch thread announcing them should have been a clue ;)
