Any thoughts?

 

They look to be going for around $850 at the moment on seconds hand sites

That'd be a good deal if you have to buy today, but it isn't all that long until the 20xx stuff is out. Chances are, the 2070 will be about as fast and cost about the same as a 1070 (or maybe 1070 Ti) after prices have settled. Right now, a 1070 (non-Ti) can be had new for $650, or a 1070 Ti for as low as $750. That means that right now wouldn't recommend buying a 1080 Ti for any more than $650, and definitely not more than $750.

If you wait a few more weeks, 20xx Series will be available to buy. (I think it's around the 20th September)

So 10xx Series will drop in price, and second hand ones should drop in price as well.

Though be mindful that the second hand one you are looking at, hasn't been used for mining coz if it has then it would have been thrashed.

I agree waiting it a good idea.

 

Leeks on the 20XX series and history of generation over generation performance has told us the 2080 will probably out perform the 1080ti a little. I imagine the 2080 FE will cost at least $1400 at launch, this price might settle, and partners might have cheaper options but this is still a lot more than $850.

 

So I think $850 is probably not a bad deal - however there might be an even better deal to be had when 20XX series becomes available.

Agreed 100%, the 1080TI is a great buy under $800 for performance to value. I'm holding out on my 970 to make a call on a 2080 or a 1080TI still once they're released.

2080TI are going to be delayed by a week or so, NVIDIA officially announced this.
Not sure if the 2080 is going to be delayed though.

Having just had a look at prices, and considering the reviews, I'd have to say that the $850 for a 1080 Ti mentioned in the OP does indeed look like a good deal. This is mostly due to the 2080 not being a significant improvement over it (meaning the 2070 is almost certainly going to be well behind it) and costing even more. The 2080 price will drop I'm sure, but it might take a while, and there's no knowing just how far either – based on 1080 and 1080 Ti prices I'm going to guess it won't drop below $1200, at least not unless AMD releases something good to compete with it.

The cheapest 2080ti at CL is $2349. Completely mindblown.

And that's the cheapest indexed by PriceSpy too. And the cheapest 2080 (non-Ti) is $1565.

 

For comparison:

  • The 1080 Ti launched March 2017 at about $1400 – $1500, and dropped to $1300 – $1400 after 3 – 5 months. It went up by around $100 a while later (I assume during the mining craze), and a few months ago moved to about where they are now – about $1400 (some dropping, some actually rising).
  • The 1080 (non-Ti) launched May 2016 at about $1400, and gradually dropped off to $1000 – $1400 depending on model (say $1150 as a point estimate) after 5 – 6 months, at which point it basically sat there until NVIDIA gave it a price cut around March 2017, dropping prices by around $100 – $200 (possibly more). They stayed down for a while, then a lot went up again, often to similar to where they were before the price cut. Since then a lot of them have dropped a bit, putting them where they are now – about $850 – $1000.

In other words, this generation is ridiculously priced...

Maybe I'm just old school in thinking a flagship card (**80) card should be a thousand bucks, and the super enthusiast card (**80ti) should be around $1300. Those days are now gone. Now that nvidia have moved to this pricing model, expect it to be the new norm.

Update:

Pulled the trigger on a 1080ti EVGA ICX2 for $1300 at CL. That day it went up to $1400. The NZ stock of the 1080ti will basically be gone next month.

EDIT: As I predicted, basically all gone last week.
