    ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB AMP! Omega-Newegg.com

    Yea yea most of us want the 1070 or 1080 but $400 for a highly clocked 980Ti isn't bad. I think these were $440 AR last week. Not as nice as the $369 AR MSI Golden, but still decent IMO.

    A Heads up for anyone considering.

    Almost bought this one but thought the 1070 was better for $40 more.

    I went through the same thinking. Believe me, I flip flopped for several weeks over it. In the end I've decided I will no longer be an early adopter. IMO the biggest thing 1070 offers over a 980Ti is a fairly substantial power savings and maybe a better VR experience (big MAYBE) - neither of which I give a shit about at this time.

    After the holidays when the 1070's (hopefully) arent overpriced, and more available. When the drivers and the tech has matured and had bugs ironed out. When any hidden flaws or limitations (970 'memorygate' anyone?) have been revealed. When the AIB's offer something more substantial to me than bright neon RGB's in a million colors... I'll then be glad to consider a 1070.
    Hell by then the 1080Ti will probably suddenly appear and the 1080's will be discounted.

    I was just about to bite on this card. Had it in the cart and was about to enter CC information when I thought I'd look to see if there were any 1070's in stock.

    Checked Amazon and they had one from Gigabyte that's in stock on the 10th for just $30 more than this 980 Ti.

    Hope I made the right choice!

    Just look at the "Used" section for any card on Amazon, sometimes they sell stuff that was returned and then discount it. I'm sure the $350 one is gone now, but sometimes you can find stuff for $50+ off due to repackaging or minor cosmetic imperfections.
