    True enough, people occasionally post hardware deals in the games one too though. See what happens with this, I guess :)

    I have not used mine a lot (bloody Guild Wars) but mine is connected to my hub via a cable, and Hub > Homeplug > PC and all seems fine. I was only using it for more actiony games (Broforce and other 2d shooters and side scrollers) rather than anything 3d shootery.

    All performs lovely - I grabbed a Steam controller as well when that was on sale.

    Forgot about that thread. Bought some Steelseries H Wireless for only £99.99 from GAME. That was about an hour ago online, not sure about stock.

    If you're in the market for a new nvidia graphics card I'd wait a few days for the GTX1080 prices to drop to about £450 (reported on various sites) after the 1080 Ti was officially released yesterday.

    Crazy reduction on the 1080. People were paying £700 for that, now it's likely to be £450. That's PC components for you!

    Early adopters screwed again. Same happened with the 980ti so shouldnt be a shock. Thankfully AMD are pushing them again. Better prices for everyone!!

    This has been happening for as long as I can remember and not just on PC either (remember the Killzone DLC debacle Chalky? lol). I was stung when I bought my 1st gen Titan's as only a few months later the 780 Ti was released, which was both faster and cheaper and at the time I don't recall that being in response to competing products, then again, the compute power of the Titan's kept things 'kind of' rosey. Look at those that have just bought Titan X's, their rear ends are probably dipped in a bucket of ice right about now.

    Being enthusiast PC owners (as a lot on this forum are), it's a bloody expensive and punishing business. :(

    35% increased over the 1080 apparently! That really will be the sweetspot for 3440 x 1440 100hz I reckon...but I figure I can wait a while at those prices

    Scan have 1080's below £500 now. Will be interesting to see how others follow suit and if the 1070 will reduce a bit also.
