NVIDIA GTX 1080's Are Selling For Under $800 Now

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.

Thanks to OzBargain for both the deals.


    Shame I don't have $800 to spend. Saying that a 1080 is way over powered for my needs heh.

    the TI should be announced soon

      It should be released around January next year hopefully as i need a TI. I was considering getting 2 1080GTX but SLI just causes more problems in the end

        Nvidia strong discourage people trying to do SLI with 1080 saying that it is not inherently designed to do that sort of thing. Also I believe you have to request a code from them to unlock the SLI features on their Pascal card if I heard right?

          Nvidia supports SLI for 2 cards for the 1070 and greater. What they don't support is SLI for 3 or more cards.

            Most new games don't support SLI though, and the ones that do have been fraught with problems (see: The Division).

              Most games don't ship with SLI profiles, but Nvidia has been OK with enabling it for some AAAs. That said, I really don't think you need SLI with Pascal because the 1080 is so gutsy.

              Although I have SLI 1080s in this work machine that basically just runs Chrome...

                waste of money when 1 card can be more than sufficient

                What FPS are you getting when reading Kotaku in Chrome?

    I just picked up a Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming 1080 Waterforce and a Maximus VIII Formula :) first big buy for the build is done...now to get the Acer X34!

    I just got a 1060 for $375 from Umart, does everything I need and is leaps and bounds better than my Radeon 6950 haha

    Im wondering if I should splurge on a tech item.... or get my bills and some extras.....
    its confounding
