nVidia Gaming Cards on sale at Amazon

Just thought I'd let you know that Amazon appear to have some good discounts on nVidia Cards.

The GTX1080Ti must be coming out shortly then... Grin

 

Still, would like something a bit newer than my GTX750Ti, but I haven't got half a grand to pay for one, and if I did have half a grand, I'd put it towards getting a nice 8x10 shed in the garden to replace the rotten, collapse-o-matic shack I presently use... Funny

Well, I was moving the workbench out there and a pane of glass just fell out of one of the windows, luckily it landed on a load of weeds outside, but it is automatically self-dismantling as it rots away... Grin

Well after a dissapointing RYZEN release!

I guess a 35% increase in card speed is looming.... Wup

And a free game.

I must be out of touch. For that price I'd expect a free entire PC system and more.

How do you know with these things if one is better/faster than another? Is it possible by looking at the name such as Canon cameras - the better models have few numbers in their name.

I guess the best place for that would be online hardware reviews and comparison sites, such as Toms Hardware et al. For me I've always been of the opinion that a frame rate over 30 fps is wasted. A TV uses 24 fps and we're convinced that things are moving, so if you can fool your eyes at this rate isn't anything else a waste of time!

Go to a GPU Comparison site:

http://gpuboss.com/compare-gpus

 

That'll do a side-by-side comparison of what two GPUs can and cannot do... Smiley

 

There's also one for CPUs too:

Asus ROG Hero Vii Z97 , Intel i5 4690k ,ROG Asus Strix 1070,

Re: nVidia Gaming Cards on sale at Amazon

Well £318 for the CHEAPEST. I will stick with the GTX75Ti I got last year. That was a major upgrade for me, let me play some of the newer games.
NB I don't buy the latest games as 1) I can't afford them. 2) they will be 50% within 6 months anyway.
