“Inno3D have been winning awards left, right and centre for their new 900-series cards and to celebrate Halloween I’ve scared myself senseless and as such I am setting a new low price-point on GeForce GTX 970 in the UK,” said Andrew “Gibbo” Gibson, a purchasing manager at Overclockers UK. “This deal is incredible and, yes, we are making practically no money by doing it. But on the upper-hand we will probably sell 1000+ units this weekend.”
