Hi All
I currently have an i5 6500, 16gb DDR4 RAM and a gtx 1070 installed.
I have recently purchased an oculus rift and i'm just wondering if upgrading to a gtx 1080 would increase my VR experience? Or if an increase in RAM or CPU would improve the overall experience?
Thanks in advance.

CPU is a little rough around the edges for VR, but bumping up to a 1080 would definitely improve the experience. 1070 is good for VR as well, it's just that the 1080 is better for obvious reasons.

Completely up to you. If I had already spent the money on a 1070, I wouldn't want to upgrade, but that's just me. If you're really looking for performance, 1080 or 1080ti is definitely the way to go.

Thanks for the response - if the CPU is a 'little rough' would you recommend an upgrade on that front instead? Thanks
