    Overclockers has the GEFORCE GTX 1080 WINDFORCE listed at £589.99 but on a different site (not sure i am allowed to mention it) I can see it listed at £479.99. That's a hell of a price difference for the same card. I thought overclockers prices were usually the best, no?

    2 places actually but you can always ask them to price match.

    sadly i find a lot of the time ocuk to be the most expensive for a lot of things especially when you need to factor in delivery charges.

    No argument there CSBER3 and they have low stock so probably not pushing that one currently.

    Always good to shop around to know all the prices. Sometimes OC has best prices and sometimes other places.

    I think you have to link your forum account, not sure how to though.

    GPU prices are all over the place at the moment due to things like mining - some have simply been priced up and never adjusted others have been bought in at a higher or lower price depending on fluctuations and the retailer can't really afford to adjust that price, if the overall market adjusts down, until the stock bought in at a certain price has sold (or they are forced to drop prices if stock hangs around long enough).

    You definitely have to shop around at the moment for GPUs due to this - I've seen base model 1070s in some places more expensive than OC model 1080s, etc. (probably due to the comparable attractiveness for mining at some points in time).

    We have two versions of the 1080. Maybe the lower priced one comes with the slower memory.
