So I saw some interesting discount codes in the last batch Gearbest sent over and thought they would be worth sharing in case some of you are on the market for graphics cards. They are not mind-blowing discount coupons but they offer enough of a slash in the MSRP to offer probably the highest value around (where value is the turbo speed/cooling capacity/build quality divided by price).

Value Gaming: Colorful iGame GTX 1070 U TOP 8 GB with a Massive Cooler and Overbuilt Power Design For $659.99

Use discount code: GBC70U

Colorful is an emerging Chinese brand that has quickly established itself as one of the AIB with an incredible eye for design and specifications. In fact, we regularly cover their KUDAN series and they have even ventured into super-beefy watercooled design. The first deal we have is their 1070 U variant. Now there are 3 primary things you need to consider while comparing AIB designs. 1. Cooling, 2. Turbo and 3. Built quality.

With a stated turbo clock of 1757 MHz (in real life most samples exceed 1900MHz thanks to dynamic overclocking) and a triple cooler, you will not find better value for $659 even on Amazon right now.  The thing that comes the closest is EVGA’s dual cooler which is roughly $30 more expensive. Colorful’s build quality is pretty great as well and they feature a more than adequate power supply. The triple cooler design will allow ample room for dynamic overclocking to keep the card powered up with low temps. Some users have managed to overclock their 1070 U TOPs to 2020MHz!

Budget Gaming: Colorful iGame GeForce GTX 1050 Ti With Dual Fan And Beefy Power Designfor $249.99

Use discount code: C1050TI

The other card that I saw going for a good discount is the iGame 1050 Ti. Now you will be able to find 1050 Ti variants close to this on Amazon, but like before I am fairly confident you will not be able to find this exact mix of design/build quality/cooling for the mere price of $249.

The card features a similar overbuilt approach that has become the hallmark of all iGame cards and utilizes a 3+1 power design. Which is pretty decent for a 1050 Ti. The dual fan cooler will ensure that your card stays cool enough for dynamic overclocking to take it significantly above the stated boost clocks. Remember – the cooler maintains the temperatures which dictate dynamic boosting – so it is a very important consideration when purchasing a Pascal series graphics card.

All in all, you will likely not find a better deal than this for budget gaming for quite some time. Alternatively you can try waiting and hoping the cryptocurrency boom dies down – which might shave another $20-30 off the list price.
