    Hi Guys,

    Apologies for the click-bait title, :) but in Australia the costs of a GTX 1080Ti are crazy.

    I just wanted to gauge if this is a worldwide thing due to the current Crypto craze??

    I'm in the market for a GTX 1080Ti (Looking at the Aorus WaterForce card ) but it is AU$1800 here in Oz!!

    I just can't justify that amount on a hardware (That is TWO Oculus Rifts!)

    If anyone in AU sees one for sale at a decent price, let me know?

    (Maybe we can set up a thread similar to the Game Specials, but for hardware?? )

    Shopbot! I always forget that one.... Found the Waterforce for a much better price (within the realms of not need a re-mortgage!)

    I will investigate... Thanks yet again @noorbeast

    If you have waited this long @Archie it may be worth hanging out for another couple of months to see what Nvidia has planned for Volta/Ampere in 2018, that is what I am doing.

    I'm always been a few years behind when it comes to GPU's. My GTX 970 is still going strong and it's only (High) VR where it can show it's age now. Having said that, with VR v2 in the wings and the newer generation of Video cards coming along soon, I concur that I may just wait and see.... :popcorn

    Hi Archie, I purchased the Gigabyte AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11GB Video Card
    in December, from mwave for $1149.00, and I just looked its over 1400, so I glad i purchased when I did.:)

    No sure about the water block idea, the hottest it has been is 60c running Arma 3 in 4 K and maintains 60fps, for this card running all sims (assetto ect:) in 4k is a walk in the park.

    If your going to purchase the card, either way it would be a great choice.

    Regards Jerry.

    As with all "frivolous" computer purchases, my Car must have overheard the conversation and decided to "blow something" on the way home from work on Friday!!

    I'm fully expecting the repair to cost $1499. :grin

    (Thank God I didn't want to buy a Bitcoin.) o_O
