  The video card arrived yesterday, I unboxed and looked through the manuals that came with it, there is also a DVD included.  I'd like the fan and radiator mounted outside the computer but I'm not sure it that can be done.

Looks like the prices are still coming down, this new vid has some analyses of the situation.

So it seems that Nvidia will be coming out with a new series of cards in July.  I think the phones are using up a lot of the memory so prices will stay on the higher side.  I still have to get my graphics card put in.

  I just read that Nvidia will have a new series of the 1180 in September, starting prices will start at $999 for the lower cost versions, 8 to 16 Gb memory.  Intel is going to get into making GPUs again, quite a few years away, maybe 2020.

If you have any links then drop them in Carl  thumbsup

If GPUs are going to be that much I won't be buying again for a long long time.

Freddy,
  A link to Toms Hardware,  it will cover the 1180 and also the Vega's.
Also a best buy for 2018 graphics cards and Intel GPU's coming in 2020.
During the shortage they were selling already out dated graphic cards way over priced.  At Newegg prices seem to have come down to where they should be, even the 1080's are where they should be starting at $500.

$500 is about £380 so yes more like they should be. At least over the pond anyway  lol

Over here they are floating around the £500 mark still and that's just the cheapest ones : https://www.scan.co.uk/shop/computer-hardware/gpu-nvidia/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080

My 1070 was £340 and currently those float around the £400 mark upwards over here.

My particular card today: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01IF66QAI/?coliid=I1JDMW5TKLXQET&colid=O3LJM63KH1I0&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

  I paid a bit more but got the TI version with a water loop.  I was a bit concerned about adding more heat in the case and the water loop removed that potential problem so it was worth it for me.  I still have to get the Peltiers working on it.  Pretty busy lately keeping up with the house and car, lots of small things that take up time.

LOL Yeah a safe bet, these cards just don't feel like value for money anymore, has to be said.

  It seems Nvidia has 3 cards out, the RTX 2080 TI at $1200, the RTX 2080 at $799 and the RTX 2070 at $599.  The big thing seems to be the ray tracing.  260 watts for the first card the last card is about 175 watts. Which seems a lot to me.  My computer will probably die with the same card in it.
It was said third party makers will probably sell for less.

20th September for the top two cards apparently and later for the cheaper ( Shocked ) one. At around double the price of the last generation they are taking the proverbial I think.

You know, this makes me want to just get a PS4 or something to play games these days. So much cheaper. The thing about consoles - and really this goes back to the early days - is that they push them to the limits and are creative about using a known set of tools and tech.

With PC GPUs changing, what, every two years now and doubling in price, something like PS4 makes a lot of sense. And that old adage of graphics not making a game still holds true.
