    £460 and they can't even spell Armour correctly?

    It's not for gamerz,I see no RGB lights. And it is too cheap.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    I would consider buying this card for the 1/2 ~ 3/4 of the given price.

    Re: MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Armor 8G

    I had held off on upgrading my GTX 970 to a 1070 because of price due to bitcoin mining. Now that I see the prices on the 2070, it looks like I will be holding off a little longer.

    The other entry level 460 pounds 2070s only use a single 8-pin. This Armor has 8+6pin.

    Actually Armor is the correct spelling in America and in England its Armour same as colour and color they both are correct but since their a American company they named it the American way

    Re: MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Armor 8G

    Since the MSI armor and the EVGA Black cost almost the same I would go for EVGA since they have way better support but then again MSI Has a really nice looking card with a backplate

    Both Armor and Black are currently pre-order on Scan. EVGA black is due on 11th Nov and no ETA for Armor.

    Lasers not safe. People would hurt themselves... some people might even harvest the components with which to then go hurting other people, though I can't say who would even think of doing such a thing.....

    I know, right!
    It's almost as if an intentional confusion betwixt the two could be used to humourous effect... but that's a bone idle way to jest.
