    Yep, I've no time for PC hardware right now, the milking is disgusting. I've 2 rigs built, I'll just put my money saved from not doing this years GPU upgrade towards the next gen console.

    The TUF gaming went up also. Don't know why they are putting the prices up when you can buy them £20 cheaper elsewhere and in stock too.

    I figured it out, high prices putting people off which pushes buyers towards the cheap Vega cards, once Vega stock is almost gone the Navi prices will go back down.

    Glad i have patience :)

    Never buy cards on or near release, you will get bent over. You either get reamed on price, on delivery of vapourware cards you've already paid for, or both.

    Early adoption is for mugs.

    Holy smokes - £530 for the Red Devil Limited Edition now (on pre-order!).

    A short while back there was the KFA2 2070 Super for £475-£480, which made it tempting even for me with a history of nasty GSync borderless full screen issues that'd make the card 50% worthless in my book.

    Would love to see something on the KFA2 2070S level of value but for the 5700 XT, which would be a decent AIB @ £375-£380.

    Otherwise, thank goodness for WoW Classic for prolonging the life of all graphics cards that desperately need upgrading already.

    UK prices are heavily inflated mate. Nothing to do with the actual brands, AMD or AIB.
    In US it has $450, in UK it's price is $630

    That's almost $200 unreasonable price increase.

    I avoid the news, but word trickled down to my ear Brexit has now been cancelled/blocked and democracy and ideas of sovereignty have ended. Whatever the consequences of that, I'd have hoped 'sanctions' regarding the prices of 'stuff' via devaluing the pound would now be alleviated in the short-term as the country is towing the line of unquestioning vassalage once again.

    What pound devaluing mate? The exchange rate hasn't moved 70% down to justify those prices.

    That is why if you filter Sapphire for 5700XT, Vega 64 Nitro+ is there :D

    So has this been as bad as the Asus 2070 evo cards or has it been a bit of a better pre order period?
