You dont buy HEDT platform only for gaming. Just because you cant find any use for it, doesnt mean others wont. Frankly, I've seen a lot of discussions on that topic on overclock.net and TR is no worse than Ryzens for gaming, while providing essential features for those who need them.

3D cards and CPU, RAM and now VR are all like what is your overall use.

AMD ThreadRipper is better choice if you do work with machine and not just game.
Amount of RAM past 8-16GB is questionable for gaming, but not for work.
Etc.

Then is like a DCS with VR. Not really ready as HMD is so low resolution for DCS textures and details, yet if you play other VR titles, then there are great visuals that work at lower specs.

DCS is too demanding, not optimized Visual and overall not a good choice for hardware updates, unless you really really want for it.
It is like having the woman that everyone else admire and dreams, but every penny and time you have will go on her....
So either you want her as her, or you want her because everyone else does but anyways you will pay and listen her whining about not having enough money or time....

So taking a reality check about does a latest and greatest hardware that cost 3-5 times more be worth when you get to suffer from same terrible anyways be worth it?

IMHO. A VR only because DCS ain't worth it. But for DCS but mainly for others VR is worthy.
Just like latest hardware alone for DCS ain't worthy, but for others it is.

But some can argue that they only use a PC for a DCS and that is their only hobby to get relaxed, get own time from a family, it is cheaper than golf etc... And it too is totally valid...

And it is CHEAPER than a golf!

I just upgraded from AMD 1600x @3.9GHz 1.370V to Intel 8600k @5GHz 1.280V.
First impression - VR Performance is now (much) better with my 1080ti

Running now @5GHz 1.212V, RealBench stable, CPU Temp 70C, Aircooled (Mugen 5 PCGH)

Wow nice only 1.212V for a 8600K @ 5GHz and 70C on air!
Did you delid your CPU?

For my 8700K i ordered an Corsair H115i that I will run in Push-Pull setup with ML140 fans.
I don't plan on delidding the CPU.

I am planning on getting a Oculus Rift CV1 with my new system.
Any indication on what FPS you are getting in VR?
What VR device are you using?

Not delidded, but will probably do (Just for Fun).
FPS @45 - 90, in IL2 BoM for example i was getting mostly 45 FPS, now 90.

VR device is CV1.
