    Just curious. I preordered EVGA gtx 1080 FTW last night just to have something. I will cancel it if classified or something better from zotac or msi is available to order soon

    I hope you didn't get it off amazon... People who got it early are selling it there for much more than the advertised price.

    And where is the GTX 1070 option? ;P

    You mean you ordered it or you have it already? If it's the latter have you done any benchmarks yet? OC? Voltage tweaking?

    Haha, forgot about that. Just added 1070 to the poll

    Yeah,
    I do love the actual price tho, and the 1070's too. The 1070 is supposed to be equivalent to a Titan X, and is only $379.


    Should've waited for titan x prices to go downhill. :P

    No. £600, Nvidia can jog on with that sort of pricing.

    The younger me probably would have!

    I'm still rocking the Radeon 6800, ancient i know. However it plays Age of Empires 3, UT 2004 and the new "Unreal Tournament" Alpha fine, which is all i really play on the PC.

    One day I might get back in to PC gaming like i used to be.

    Since it's $380 (1070), and the 970 is around $300, you'd probably be able to sell it for $240 or something depending on the condition, the rest of the math you can do.
    In my country the 970 is super expensive, so I'll be able to sell it for the same price as the retail price ($300) and just pay $70. :D

    I think I'm gonna wait for the AMD Polaris cards, I don't really have the craze for 4K gaming so... I think the Polaris will dominate on 1080p with a better price-performance ratio we've ever seen.

    You can never really tell, as nvidia has basically bought off all the AAA game devs to make it more optimized for their cards (and shitty for AMD users). And why not this on 1080? It will be amazing at 1080, and enough at that (above 60fps at max).
