1070 is arriving today. I decided I wanted one, checked nowinstock, saw the EVGA SC was available, and ordered it. Entire time spent waiting to order: around 3 minutes.

Wow. Don't go to nowinstock dot com. Make sure it's dot net.

My 970 is getting trounced by Project Cars with Vive VR. Everything is at the lowest setting but whenever I join a race with more than 3 cars the framerate drops below 90 and I get that terrible stuttering. I'm convinced that I'll have to replace it with a 1080 to actually enjoy higher settings and smooth frame rates. Every other game runs fine, but then again every other VR game looks like rear end.

Any word on the mini GTX 1070?

Are there any GTX 1080's that are shorter than 10.5" (267mm)?

It seems like there are a few 9.5" 1070's, and of course the mini-ITX 6.5" 1070.

A 9.5" 1080 wouldn't be unreasonable I'd think. My case (Rosewill U3-B) takes 260mm max and I'm hesitant to try to stretch in those last 7 mm.

The HTC Vive has been obliterating my GTX 970 so I caved and bought an Asus "DUAL" GTX 1070. Here's hoping for some big improvements in Project Cars. I don't even game on my computer monitor anymore because of VR and it's made all the tech out there feel obsolete, including the drat VR headset itself.

Snapped up one of those MSI Armor 1080Ti's. Thanks for the heads up.

The 1070 just isn't fast enough to maintain 90fps in most VR games which results in a lot of sick friends not wanting to play, so the extra head room should help a lot.

Last year I bought a 1080ti to power my HTC Vive racing wheel setup. Got a few months of fun out of it, but when my Masters program started again I decided my grades would be better off if I liquidated. Wound up craigslisting the Vive for $700, and the 1080ti right after for $600. (It was the constantly-throttling MSI Armor edition). All this right before the crazy bitcoin bubble. Now my PC doesn't have a videocard at all, and probably wont until graduation in May when the market (hopefully) cools off.

Feels good to sit out all this craziness.

VR racing was cool until the initial wow factor wore off. Then you realize just how much time you spend staring at that center cluster of pixels in the headset trying to gauge where the upcoming apex is.

And even with a 1080ti your framerate gets slaughtered at decent visual settings. (Project Cars)

I had a 1080ti Armor and it was impressively bad.

My hope for the next gen (or non-inflated prices) finally cracked and I ordered a used Ebay GTX 1070 for $395. Boy howdy I hope I don't regret it.

That Ebay GTX1070 wound up being a scam unfortunately.

Got a partial refund.

Ebay seller person posted:

Thank you for contacting us. I am sorry to hear of this issue. This item was a item that we purchased brand new factory sealed and a buyer purchased the item, then the same day it was delivered opened a return request stating they "changed my mind". Once the item was returned to us we inspected it and relisted it. This sticker matched the 8gb reference so we do not think anything of it. I am guessing our buyer purchased this to replace their old model and cheated us.

So uh, thanks Ebay for the $150 1060?

A not insignificant portion of my brain is still bound by an intense desire to own a Geforce 6800 Ultra and it kind of makes me sad.

Is there an equivalent DLSS feature in photo editing where you can do some "Enhance... enhance.... enhance..." poo poo like they do in movies when they catch the bad guys face in the reflection of something at the back of a grainy security camera feed?
