because taxes and fees and duties

 

do you seriously not know this already?

 

literally every GPU release is the same, way more expensive in pounds


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

No, it's not...

 

Cheapest GTX 1070s in the UK are £400. That is about $540 USD.

1) the 970 didnt launch today, it launched years ago, of course its cheaper now

2) 390 is also pretty old

3) the 1070 is WAY more expensive in pounds than it is in USD

4) the 480 isnt special, its just another GPU release

5) you need to pay more attention to release prices, value of the pound, and taxes
