Here is the thing 

Usually it should but for some reason Pascal didn't drop that much in the high end Market to 70 sku and up 

So theoretically it should but there is an exception to every rule and it was Pascal but it also could be Turing

Title says it all, want to play VR games at very high quality (oculus Rift S) and please consider their price in Australian dollars. The 2070 super is what I was going to get, just double checking with you all if it is a good idea. its $500 USD and thus should be around $760 AUD but in reality the shops are selling it for far more, like $900-$1000. What other options do I have?

Budget: under $1200

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

I also had that suspicion. I was just unsure about whether it was getting value because it is a bit more expensive than the RX 5500 XT so I am not sure if I should wait for the new GPU's to launch? @TofuHaroto

I mean you should wait if your satisfied with the performance of your current rig other than that the upgrading won't hurt

do you think the 2070 super prices will drop significantly when the new graphics cards are released? @TofuHaroto

Here is the thing 

Usually it should but for some reason Pascal didn't drop that much in the high end Market to 70 sku and up 

So theoretically it should but there is an exception to every rule and it was Pascal but it also could be Turing

Ok I see. Thanks for your help. Since my dad is buying a pc as well, he will buy the super, and I will wait until the drop. if prices drop significantly, then all is well and if not its ok I can buy the new ones. Thanks again for your help @TofuHaroto
