I just upgraded from a 970 to a 1080, and VR is greatly improved in most games, but I wish I'd gotten a Pascal Titan X, because max settings in some games can be too much for the 1080, causing frame drops.

Entitled bastard. The Titan is 10% faster in almost all scenarios. The 1080 is almost twice as fast as a 970, and you wish you got a Titan? GTFO

I'm good on the Titan X, I can wait for the 1080 TI when it eventually gets release, should have close performance with a much more palatable price point.

I have a 980 TI and it runs everything pretty well, looking at its performance I can probably wait for next years refresh. I like the fab shrink, but I really want something with HBM. I'll wait till next cycle and hope there's a consumer model from both companies that has this feature, then make my choice. I'm not seeing games taking advantage of these new features for the next couple of years any how.

Going with their prebuild, means at the starting point, you have a price premium of $200 over building it yourself, and that premium increases with each stage about $370 over the cost to build an equivalent system yourself.

I don't get why these companies increase the price premium for more expensive systems that have a similar component count.

It doesn't cost more to have a worker connect a SATA cable to a 512GB SSD, than it does to connect the same cable to a 7200RPM HDD.

Overall, at the higher end, a user is better off possibly getting 2 GTX 1070s for SLI (for non-VR gaming), or doing a 1080 build, but with a i7 6700k, and liquid cooling for better overclocking.
