Prices do seem to be moving in the right direction but still silly at the moment.

  I just checked Newegg and the 1070 for $470 is gone, reading that the blower motor can cause the gpu to cut back on performance.  Pretty much the same cards as usual

  I have a feeling the graphics cards have settled down and are about as low as they will be, I'll probably go with the 1070

In the UK the 1070 is still really expensive, they were £350 but are now around the £500 mark  Shocked

Typical example:

 About $500 in the US, I'm thinking of this one

 a turbo fan that blows the exhaust out the back end, not sure I heard it runs a little hotter than the regular fan type. The 1060 would probably do but it deserves a 1070.  I remember when you couldn't even find a 1070.

  It is noted for being a good card for the money,  to bad the Vega cards are so expensive.

Given that we're still seeing some overpricing, I think it's more a case of "good money for the card", but that's just my opinion. Tongue

Perhaps I'm just jealous that I can't afford to get new, proper cards for my machine? Undecided

Carl if you don't mind me asking, what is it that you can't do with the onboard graphics ?

Since I started on the Peltier I haven't even turned on the coffee lake.  I'm using a 300 w HP power supply to power the Peltier.  What I can't do is put in a graphics card and see if that causes a heating problem and if it does I'll separate the lower portion housing the graphics from the top portion where the CPU is with plastic or something, add an opening for a vent or what ever.  So why do I need a Peltier or why do I need the coffee lake.

For $20 dollars more I can get the Evga 1070 Ti also with a blower fan.  I've heard it is worthwhile to go with the Ti version if you don't have to pay a lot more.

Really like the 1070 Ti , I'll buy it today or maybe on Monday,  no sense saving a bit of money with the 1060 but always wishing you spent a bit more.

For just $20 more yes I agree it's a no brainer  thumbsup

  Spent a little more  EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING 08G-P4-5678-KR 8GB GDDR5 SC HYBRID & LED,  I like the hybrid water cool since these video cards always get clogged with dust.  It still has the blower fan but water cooling should keep the temp down.  Both the blower and Hybrid cooling are extras that would be added to the price. spent more than I wanted but I like the benefits I've gotten.  the computer can't be beat once I get the Pletiers going.

  Tracking says the package will be delivered tomorrow, 2 days time is really quick.  Not in a rush for it anyways probably a few days before I get the radiator in place.  I'm sure they have fans with thermistors on them, I have water cool options on the motherboard but would rather leave them as they are for now since water cooling is for the GPU not the CPU.
