need help upgrading my graphics card

I'm wanting to upgrade my graphics card (EVGA GTX 960 SSC 4GB gddr5) so I can run games in vr or at least at higher settings. I was originally going to get a second 960 but I'm not sure if my motherboard(MSI Z97 PC Mate) can have sli should I get another 960(and maybe motherboard) or get a different graphics card? (my cpu is a i5-4690k)

my budget is around $300 + my graphics card

2 960s won't run 4k, not even close. You'll need 1080s for that

What is your budget? I would recommend selling your old GPU and getting a newer one.

If you want a smooth experience in all games at 4k basically its 1080ti or bust. If you are playing games like league of legends at 4k I would recommend at least a 1060 6gb, even if 2 960s did run a game like that at 4k you might get terrible frame rates because of only having 2gb of vram.

And no that "s" at the end of 1080 is not a mistake. I have a 1080ti and it still can't run most hard to run AAA games at 4k 60hz. SLI optimization is also not great these days. So it really depends on which games you are looking to run at those graphics first.
