    Heavy tax/vat,inflation,Remember its rip off Britain,we always get ****ed over here with prices on everything,if the 690 prices were the same as what they are in the USA i woulda bought 2 right of the bat without even considering it.
    Nice one,where did you get it from and when is it going to be delivered?
    Is that Aria by any chance?
    Will have one in my hands on friday i have been told by the retailer.

    For me, it was either this or a 12Tb NAS. I chose the NAS because my "old" 470's are still running all new games at full eye candy and 4xMSAA/16xAF on 1920x1200

    Plus unless they make a 4Gb version of 690, it's not even worth it as for the same price you can get 2 680's with 4gigs

    You can build a NAS by using Freenas(download) and spare PC parts just to let you know.

    @Veteran: Place called Taylor Made Computers, they had 2 available but some git has already bagged one :banana:

    I'm half expecting an email that says they have got the price wrong tbh or the free delivery is not next day but 'whenever' meaning no Friday jizz fest gaming sessions :(

    @sovietdoc: I already have a Synology DS212+ NAS so can't use that as an excuse to not buy :)

    Once they advertise the price and you have paid for it they have to acknowledge it.

    Yeah seems that 10/5/2012(Thursday) is the day right across the whole UK when the big shipment seems to be coming in as most if not all retailers have this date confirmed which will mean a friday delivery hopefully.

    They'd better honour the price then, it's not a massive difference from others but they do still quote the E&OE bit:

    Could get shafted big time here :bang:

    I was going to join the 690 club, Until the Aus price came out.....

    http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=193_1385

    $1600 are they serious, the Aus $ is better then US and I cant see Shipping costing that much.

    Fk I hate this country with there pricing.

    I have seen another site selling it for $1500 but still there is no way I would have paid over $1200 for this card.

    Yeah, we have 20% tax, then import duties and shipping costs are factored in.
    $1000 can easily become £800 but it seems there is a bit more stiffing going on here.

    I guess Nvidia directed these cards for the rich and famous.

    It could almost be classified as a collcetors Item, Might as well leave it boxed and up on the mantel.

    A 690 is about the price of 2 x 680, in fact my 690 has cost me LESS than 2 x 680 so why would I do that?

    I'm neither rich (not now anyway) nor famous, so they got that wrong :D

    That is a absolute rip off, £929.99 = $1,502.

    We should be paying about £700 at most, it would be cheaper to import it, if you could fined a US seller that delivers internationally.
