    Haha, being serious for a sec hats off to anyone who does this. Working harder to buy whatever you love is admirable.

    I did something similar, sold my 1080ti for 500, which is the same as what I paid for it. Then got a 2080ti for 700. So performance upgrade was inline with the price paid. Hopfully wont lose too much selling it. But if not, it's been cheap gaming anyway.

    Absolutely, trends of society. Sad as it is we can't stop the tide. I'm just preparing for that £1500 + price. I will pay it and never think of it again!

    £500 aint maintstream; not too long ago that was top-end pricing :p Or 2nd from top at least.

    £200-£300 is mainstream.

    And entire console for £500 is mainstream :p

    £500 isn't mainstream...

    The 3070 should be £350 - £400 for me to be 'happy' with the price.

    Probably watch it on my work laptop with headphones on, just in case the missus overhears the pricing o_O

    Eeew not console..

    In 2020 in the PC Space £500 is mainstream. We can all dream about 5-10 years ago but reality check guys, it's 2020 xD

    An RTX 3070 at £500 would be a decent move by Nvidia, assuming performance and features are strong.

    Speculation much? The AMD cards will be released in November or so and I highly doubt we would see a Ti that soon after the 3080 release.

    You can add it to your Google calendar from the countdown page with all the dets. Annoyingly I forgot I'd be on a call that I host until 530 so will likely miss a chunk. Will have it on mute on 2nd monitor, so might be an interesting call for my guests depending on how loud the pricing makes me gasp

    If "mainstream" means "mid-range in the current line-up" then that's one thing.

    "Mainstream" to me means what casual gamers/budget gamers are actually buying en masse.

    Arguably two different things. The 3060 might be a £450 ish "mid-range" card but would it be mainstream?

    LOL. I genuinely do need to boost my pot though and you are quite correct about OT being needed to do that but Covid has killed that and figures are down for the year :(
