Overall Review: For many years I had a Radeon R9 290X and been pleased with it. I updated with a GTX 1060 6GB from Gigabyte and I went "wow" on it. Been playing almost every games in 1080P on ultra (some on max) settings and got steady 55-60fps. I bought an Oculus Rift and it worked nicely but many people talked about improvements in graphics when upgrading your video card and I fell for it. Bought this EVGA GTX1080 but honestly I do not see any big improvements in VR games. In regular games my fps went up to 110 but that is the only improvement I can see so far. I know it is more future proof than the GTX1060 but I could have live with it a couple more years. To sum it all, it is a great video card depending on what you do with it. You do not need it if you play in 1080 like me. Go with a 1060 6gb or 1070 if you can grab a cheap one.
