GTX 1070ti for £280 or Vega 56 for £230?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP



Both are refrence styled cards, the 1070ti is PNY and the Vega 56 is a Powercolor, the seller can provide me with the receipt to make use of the warranty on the 1070ti of which has over 2 years remaining, the Vega 56 on the otherhand has no warranty.


I will be buying a 1440p 144hz monitor at some point and so I want the card with the best performance for this. I play games like WoW, Blackout, Assasins creed, Overwatch and others.


What do you guys think?

I would personally go for the Vega card. Use the money you saved to buy a different graphics card cooler and you'll have a good performer.


What I can't speak for is the warranty though, if it were Asus or MSI then the warranty would be basically worthless but I don't know how good PNY RMA services are.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

I'd get the Vega 56 and overclock it.

I have an Anet A8 as my project printer and a i3 MK3 for when I want things to work. 


I extrude my own filament and haven't saved a penny yet.
