    I concur with this as well, also 1080Ti is great for VR too.

    Original DCS = Digital Combat Simulator -> release date 2008. You didn't say DCS 2.0 in your first post ;)

    VR Hype is gone, my Vive has been boxes and collecting dust for 6 months now. It's sh1t situation at the moment, Games are looking rubbish without Super-sampling, but GPUs can't handle games with high super-sampling, yet the VR resolution is still terrible. 4k/eye is needed to get the right fidelity, which means 2-3 GPU cycles before we get anywhere close to that, if not more...

    Sorry DCS 2.1 haha.

    You're completely right, i mean i still VR in DCS because for flying it's a must, i could possibly go track IR but don't have that, however yes the resolution is terrible. I had a Pimax 4K and it had great res, but the screen ghosting and no proper tracking it was horrible so i sold it when the rift arrived.
    Eagerly awaiting the next gen of the decent brands!

    All it means is your 1080ti will last you for 3 years. Keep it.

    It would depends on your monitor and games you play imo. i.e. if you play Crysis 4 on 240Hz then no 1080Ti isn't a waste on 1080p.
    But I know I've wasted money on 7700K/GTX1050Ti and now 8700K/GTX1060 cos I only play Diablo 3 :D

    What games are you guys smashing @ 4k60 on your 1080Tis?

    Also I just had a go on my mate's ROG 27" / 165hz / 1440p and I really can't handle how small everything is at 1440p on a 27" after using a 1080p/27" for so long. I'd definitely want 30" @ 1440p. I use a 2560x1600 @ 30" at work and I think it's a nice compromise. For my personal taste I'd need at least 30" on 1440p. In gaming (to me) it's not so different from 1080p but holy shit is it painful when you're using Windows.

    This probably isn't the popular opinion though.

    Your opinion is same as of my colleagues at work that are 50+ :) they all whinge about the 1440p panels we have in the office and all want to change back to 24" :) :) :) . IMHO 27" is sweet sport for 1440p. Both gaming and Windows use, Icons are big enough and are sharp (compared to 1080, which looks terrible once you on 1440p+). FPS online gaming, anything over 27" is disadvantage, 24" is still ideal with 27" it's just on the acceptable limit. 1440p has nearly double the pixels as 1080p so yeah, it's noticeable, A LOT, Especially in games, in general 2xAA is all you need with 27"/1440p combo. I would go to that extend and say, 27"/1440p is the new 24"/1080p.
