Im pretty sure these guys will make quick work of sli problems with vr. Already there is a system that uses one gpu for each lens in vr. Of course devs have to implement it in the end. Also im really contemplating cancelling my vive order seeing as the games are so limited on that platform right now. Id probably just end up playing flight sims again.

There are already patches out to get Rift games working on Vive, including exclusives. The hack can be used for all current and future Rift titles, unless Oculus changes their development methodology to block it.

At this point in time, Vive's the pony to back, but I'm not spending several thousand dollars (thank you Australia tax!) on a decent gaming rig and VR headset just for mediocre tech demos, while Nvidia milks the public for all its worth with incremental upgrades instead of the generation-changing chips they already have up their sleeve.

4K on Ultra, SLI VR and a catalogue of AAA VR titles might win me back into the fold, but I think it's still a good 2-3 years away.

Yea dude 4k triple a vr titles and hardware that will run it are years away.  And also im including rift titles in my analysis of vr titles need a lot of work. Im not scared of a little grease getting rift titles to work on the vive, none of them seem like they are very good though as a whole except flight/space/racing sims. Adrift looks amazing but they are far and few between.
            Cost is also way too high for a bunch of tech demos.

Downloading small game patches is all it takes to convert Rift to Vive. Apparently the Vive's room-scale walky-walky stuff works too.

Nah just 1080 and 1070. Titan is too rich for my blood though i share the sentiment.

Prolly gonna be a while, they need to sell 1080s, when i need more power ill just sli them when the price comes down. I need an upgrade, still rocking 2 680s. 1080ti will prolly take 4- 6 months going by trends.

So before the years out, or even Q1 2017 I would wait, even though newer cards will be right around the corner then, a 1080ti would be insane for what I need.

Would that card still pair well with a i72700k? (Assuming it will)

Id think so but at the same time it probably heavily depends on amd's response.

Might possibly be a bottleneck if you run it at stock speeds, is your CPU overclocked? :)
I just wanted to say that you are a phenomenal gamer. You make it look so easy and your gameplay has this commanding "tone" to it (i.e. not frantic -- more of a dominating calm :) ).

Genuinely? Its not OC'd don't really have any idea about OCing so i just left it alone.. It sounds time consuming.

2500K/2700K stock clock ... what a waste :) running my 2500K since 2011 at 4.95 Ghz.
Sandy is the best cpu made ever :)
