Retail price is $470. So this is about a $40 saving on EVGA's top of the 1070 model.

That's for reference cards. This is EVGA's top 1070 at the moment. Highest factory clock speed, dual BIOS, ACX 3.0 cooler. Jet is charging $7 above the MSRP, not $96.

Pay with debit and its $428. This is their top of the line 1070 - retail is $470 on EVGA's site.

This really is a decent deal for a 1070 right now. A good price for a custom 1070 right now is $400. Add an extra $30 for being a top of the line EVGA card with a 3 year warranty from one of thee most reputable companies in the industry, and the price starts looking right.

Still, using that "first time" Jet promo code for the deal is getting old.

$380 is not for higher end models. They've always been and always will be about $50-$100 more than the listed retail price, mainly because they use better components.

At $380 (which nothing will ever sell at), expect cheap components, no backplate, lower binned chips that run hot to the touch (downclocks in performance if it gets too hot). Historically, nothing has sold for MSRP either. There's always been a reseller markup.

Cheapest component cards with poor cooling and coil whine (we're talking poor PNYs, Zotacs, etc) may get away with selling at $380. But don't ever expect the tier 1 brands to sell at MSRP.

So if you don't plan to OC, and just run stock. Does it matter?

I mean to me $380 is above my budget, so I'm waiting for a deal to sweeten it a little to get an entry level 1070 to pair with my i5-6600.

Supply and demand has dictated otherwise since day one. None of the cards said to be at sub-$400 prices have actually sold there yet. Right now, this is a good deal, and no one knows when it'll stop being a good deal.

If you don't care about potential coil whine, poor customer service/warranty, and your GPU getting hot enough up to 90c+ with furmark while simultaneously having a lower core and base clock speed (which heats up your motherboard and other components as a GPU is by far the hottest component you can put in your system besides a dual core roc RAID controller) then go for it.

Most people who buy cheap GPUs don't buy them for gaming. When you play a game, your GPU can be stressed at 95% load for the entire duration while the game is running.

A comparable gigabyte g1 runs no hotter than then 60s to low 70s under full load while running at hundreds of mhz higher clockspeed, while using lower power.
