They missed a trick with the marketing there - should have called it the g-spot monitor!

Upgraded my 970 GTX to a Gigabyte G1 Gaming 1080 GTX (OC'd) now I have an Oculus Rift.

My 970 could run all my games at max on my monitor @1920x1200 @ 60fps or higher. It is still a good card for today's games but sadly didn't have enough grunt to run my DCS flight sim in VR at a decent enough frame rate.

...noticeable improvement with the 1080.

Not sure whether to be very impressed or commend you on reaching unparalleled levels of gheyness...
Claims of flight sim are doubted...I am sure you got the VR just to play stip poker games :lol:

Nice upgrade :good:

Not found a good vr porn site yet, so will stick to DCS flight sim for now.

Took my Harrier AV8B for a flight down the Vegas strip the other day, surprised how small it is and how it's literally surrounded by desert and mountains. Massive airport though a couple streets away from the strip.
