thought of upgrading for vr preference tho

The 1070 is more than enough for VR. 

hey, im thinking of upgrading my GPU but im not sure about it because i dont know much about it.

 

so i have the ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 ROG Strix Gaming and thinking of changing to ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2070 Blower.

but im not sure if that would be better than just buying another GTX 1070 and do SLI of it.
so can anyone tell me what would be the best option?
EDIT: its mostly for VR

Price for

  • ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 ROG Strix Gaming - 5390 NOK (630 USD)
  • ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2070 Blower - 5090 NOK (597 USD)

IMO, there's no need to buy another GTX 1070 (for SLI) or a new RTX 2070. Instead, save up some more money and get a RTX 2080 in the future.

Don't bother, the 1070 is going to smash 1080p 60Hz for a long time.

I use the 1070 for VR and it works really well.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Yep I fully agree I have two 1070's not worth the SLI. The heat, the power, a dam mobo that says you have to stick them right next to each other to get x16... so short term get the best single card you can get

There's no point in upgrading. Even for VR, a single GTX 1070 is more than capable right now. If you were to upgrade, go for a GTX 1080. It performs as well as a 2070, but doesn't charge you extra to unlock the whole GPU (bullshit move, NVIDIA) or for a feature that no game developers actually support.

Sincerely,

That reminds me, has any games brought a patch out yet for RT?

Not to mention even the RTX cards work on common SLI it just uses NVlink port but all the actual NVlink features are not present... kinda getting annoyed with people trying to ditch the SLI nomenclature when it still is what it is.

AND you need the 1809 windows patch if you can nab one of them from the wilds ?

VR has basically no SLI scaling AFAIK, so I'd just sell your current 1070 and get a 2080 or 1080ti. I mean you're willing to pend 630 USD out of pocket for another 1070, if you get $250 for your current 1070 a 2080 or 1080ti should be very within reach.

No, no one is saying ditch it. If you asked me is sli worth it for the games I play i would say no. If some one asked me if I would sli my next cards, yes I would the only reason I had 2x 1070s is because the 1080 was sold out on the realise date I would have to wait ages as I use MSI cards so I went to the 1070 but I will be getting sli on the next release cards from nvidia ?
