1070 not enough for you? I have one here and it did pretty damn good for half the wattage of my Titan X.

I think it's plenty tbh and I bare game on the pc anymore, but knowing that there's something better out there is gonna bother me in the back of my head.
Maybe I need to start gaming on my PC more often to calm those nerves down.

I was going to buy off newegg anyway, even with express postage and ****ty conversion rate it's still about $50-$100 cheaper than buying locally not sure if that voucher will be valid for Aus buyers though.
