the ocuk boss, posted on his forum at the time that the increases were due to brexit impact on the exchange rate, and said cards already paid for (by ocuk to supplier) such as the 980ti stock would not be affected. Literally days after he posted the 980ti's were hiked up in price for no plausible reason other than gouging presumably due to a jump in orders, its sad but is what it is.
glad you made your choice, waiting wouldnt have achieved much I feel, given now how they keep previous gen cards priced high artificially anyway.
If you track the prices of gpu's on uk retailers excluding amazon, they can often be seen to be tweaked several times a week, which I doubt is anything to do with supply costs but more to do with maximising profit based on demand.
I just checked ocuk, my palit 1070 gamerock premium which I paid just over £400 for is still no cheaper, its currently £428, so waiting would have been pointless.
The 1050ti is £120 on ocuk. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/asus-geforce-gtx-1050...
