Been on the fence about upgrading your graphics card? Your patience is about be rewarded.
The retail hangover from Black Friday hasn't entirely subsided, which is great news if you're looking for a bargain. And while quite a few have reared their heads already, like Target's offering later this week.
But what if you want some cheap hardware, like a new graphics card?
You have two options for that right now. The first is through PC Byte, an online retailer based just near Homebush in New South Wales. They're selling Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 Gaming 8GB cards for $999, but if you apply the OzBargain10 code at checkout you'll be able to bring the price down to $779 inc. GST.
Shipping via Toll will set you back $14, or you can pay $10 for Aussie Post's express service which will get you your GTX 1080 within 1-3 business days.
The second option at the moment is through Ebay, specifically the Shopping Express store. They're offering a 20% discount the same Gigabyte GTX 1080 card provided you apply the C20ELF code at checkout.
You'll need to use PayPal to take advantage of the offer, but thanks to free standard shipping (which arrives within 3 business days, at least to Sydney metropolitan areas) the deal is a flat $780. That's cheaper than what you can get at any retailer, and basically the same as what the first GTX 1070's cost when they first landed in Australia.
These deals will be gone in the next 24 to 48 hours, so if you're after a GPU gift this Christmas, you'd better get moving.
