Gigabyte GTX 1080 for $499. Good deal@

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello. I plan to only game at 1080@60 for the foreseeable future. I was looking into getting a 1060, but I will not be able to upgrade for years. So, I started looking at the 1070 and the 1070 Ti. Then I came across this:

$499 -
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 GV-N1080WF3OC-8GD 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express

I figure that it is not too much more than a 1070(Ti), so I might add well pick it up. However, I wanted to see what you all thought about it. If this a good deal and use it a good card?

Thank you in advance for your help!

I'd hold off for now since a new series of cards should be coming in the next few months.

I wish I could, but I need it right away. I have nothing right now.

With the GTX 1060's being almost $300 usd and the 1070's being over $400 usd. I go with the 1060. If you wanna spend more I'd go 1070Ti at $450 and not a penny more or step up to the 1080 and not pay a penny more than $500 usd. The miners don't like the 1080's.

I have an opportunity to pick up that Gigabyte 1080 for $499...no shipping or tax.

I assumed you still had the 780 listed for your rig, sorry. It's an okay price for the card right now but it's going to drop like a rock as soon as the next series is out.

Price history of this card above. It has been cheaper. Miners make it so hard for us gamers to get cards. And without rival amd/rtg firing back hard with vega they don't budge much on price. If it was me I would even touch the 1070 based on the prices. I feel as if the 1070Ti is a better deal. But I have seen 1080's selling for the same price if not better.
