That can happen for a rx580 or rx 480 they are basically the same card anyways. A working non scam gtx 1080 will never sell for as low as 80 pounds.

 

What computer do you have now? I've seen multiple of your posts before. If this is still the system with the bad psu then first replace that before getting a new gpu.

Whats the need for the upgrade? As far as I know you just wanted to play minecraft and a gtx 760 should be plenty. If you would have gone this route and gotten this better budget this quickly I would have recommended a totally different computer.

Your current computer no matter the gpu upgrade is not ready for vr. That is far beyond the original tasks for it you described a month ago. Since you ordered a better psu now and seem to have a 80 pound extra budget you could have easily gotten a twice as good vr ready pc. My advice would be if that is the thing you want it to do in a year is to just sell this system again and get something better as upgrading it is gonna cost a lot more than just getting a full new used one.

 

For example a i7 3770 + gtx 970 system would totally be in your current budget no problem if you sell the computer again for it's 200pound price. Then you have 280 to spend + a good new psu and that basically means you can get a system that is easily twice as good and vr ready + can even play any modern games decently well.

 

A i5 2400 is too weak for vr and even struggles with beatsaber on the original vr headsets. The newer ones are even harder to run and it doesn't stand a chance.
