    Hi guys.

    I'm looking at picking up a 1070 to replace my 970 for casual sub 4K gaming.

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/msi-...ddr5-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-32d-ms.html

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/evga...ddr5-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-30k-ea.html

    Won't be overclocking until it's starting to show age at factory settings and I'm not that much of a gamer these days. Mainly for Sniper Elite V4, Factorio and World of Warships.

    Any suggestions?
    (I'd like to keep the costs below £450 and I like the idea of Hybrids for noise control but open to suggestions.)

    Edit
    Is it worth spending the extra £100 on a standard 1080?

    Check, didn't think of looking at good deals on 1080's :)

    Purchased, at least I won't have to upgrade for a while.

    Cheers Daaveee.

    I don't see it mentioned on the OCuk page, but that GPU also qualifies for £43 cashback from MSI.


    https://msi-promotions.com/gb/en/pages/springcashback/qualifying


    "GeForce GTX 1080 ARMOR 8G OC £43.00 14/04/2017 – 30/06/2017"



    You could also sell the Destiny 2 copy, reducing the card cost down to £421 (if you sell Destiny 2 for £35). Pretty good deal.

    Oh sweet.
    Deal keeps getting better :) - Many thanks!

    I have no interest in Destiny but the E-mail I got from OC states:

    To redeem this code

    - Install GeForce Experience software on the PC that also has qualifying GPU installed.

    It limits the buyer range but shouldn't have too much issue moving it forward. :)

    Good luck to anyone who submits their cashback claim. It took us RX480 buyers 3 months to get our rebate. They were completely disorganised.

    I'm pretty sure OC are not part of that deal because of the problems last time.

    I was involved in that Rx 480 rebate mess last time. So poorly organised.

    Is there a post somewhere stating that OCuk is not partaking in this rebate due to the travesty of the previous one?

    A minimum of 2 months is standard, 30 days to make sure you didn't return the product then 30 days to deliver. three months seems a little excessive.

    The way prices are on the 1070 atm why buy it for gaming?? Very close to the 1080 prices :(

    Its like approx...this (ish)

    GtX1060 £200 - £250
    GTX1070 £390 - £470
    GTX1080 £440 +

    Just approximates but they are way too high atm. Any idea when they will come down? When VEGA hits?

    Go for the 1080. Worth the extra for the performance boost alone

    This, still got 1080's at sub £500, but if miners come and clean the stock there won't be any sub £500 left!

    Picked up the 1080 and just took delivery.

    That's my evening sorted. :)

    Cheers all.
