Buy a 1070 now, or will prices drop?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm in the position where I can sell my 980Ti and buy an AIB 1070 for about $150 AUD difference. Leaving aside the question of whether this is a good deal or not, is it likely that the 1070 price will drop to the MSRP announced by NVidia (I think it was $380 USD) in the near future? 1070 stocks have started to stabilise in Australia, and I'm wondering if the Polaris launch may prompt stores to lower their prices from their current level.
What do you guys reckon?

A lot of retailer markup going on right now for both 1070/1080's. "Near future", possilby 1 - 2 months for price stablility I reckon. The price will not drop due to RX480 market entrance. Its servicing a different group (entry level).

Ok, that makes sense, thanks! I can wait a couple of months, hopefully 980Ti prices don't drop too much in the meantime.

Personally I would rather keep your 980ti and wait for 1080ti later this year or early next year before you upgrade. The 1070 vs 980ti is nearly the same performance after oc. The only difference you get is lower power consumption. Unless if you can sell your 980ti and be able to upgrade for free to a 1070 or maybe pay less than $30, then I would go for it.

I'm still waiting for a $379 1070, and I sold my 980 a while ago for $318, now stuck with HD4600. tongue.gif

I totally get where you're coming from, I know the performance difference will be marginal at best. The 980Ti I've got is a reference cooler though, and with the airflow in my mITX case not being the best, overclocking is out of the question unless I want to game next to a hairdryer. If I got an AIB 1070, it would hopefully run cooler and quieter, even with the airflow not being the best.

I think the 1080Ti will be out of my price range when it comes out, so I'd rather get rid if this 980Ti before it becomes virtually worthless.

Another alternative solution would be buy a better gpu cooler for your 980ti for a small price. Something like this below would help.

If you have a mini ITX case, I'm not sure all Accelero coolers will work. I put an Accelero Twin Turbo II on an ATI Radeon 6950 after one of the original fans crapped out. Loved the cooler - can barely hear it even at 100% speed. But it takes up more than 2 slots. It's huge. It also rises higher off the motherboard than a typical cooler, so that would be another possible concern for smaller cases.

That said, just replacing the cooler with something that fits in your case sounds like a better path than a new card...

I'm not so sure about the last part. If this is a mini ITX then it's not really what the designers of the 980ti were expecting that many people to do and it might be difficult to fit most custom GPU coolers in the case. Also, if it outputs that much heat it's never good to hotbox the rest of your components especially the HDD since they do not have active cooling unless you install something. I believe the OP should in fact replace the card with something more suited for a mini ITX.

Ooh, that looks really cool, will definitely keep my eye on it. I wonder how loud the cooler will be, and how high it can boost.
