My recommended setting is: start saving money for a 2080Ti ASAP.

Edit: also start praying for some DCS improvements to reduce CPU load.

I’ve taken your advice and just ordered a ASUS ROG-STRIX-RTX 2080 TI-O11G-GAMING

I'm not opposed to buying a 2080ti but it only seems to be a small improvement over the 1080ti in DCS. I'd rather just shelf this thing or sell it if the tech isn't there to properly run it. I can wait.

Oh yeah it is. I came from a founders edition 1080 to the 2080Ti and DAAAAAAAAAM.

Ya the 1080 to the 2080ti is a very good improvement but going from the 1080ti to a 2080ti is not worth the money. All the benchmarks from a 1080ti to a 2080ti saw mostly just a couple FPS gain. Again not worth 1100-1300 dollars for 5-10 FPS but hey if you got the money why not. Im hoping that the prices will fall soon or they release 20 series cards without RTX for a cheaper price or who knows in another year they may have the 3080ti.

Yeah, Id imagine your right on FPS. I did notice the image was sharper in VR but thats probably due to the higher settings the 2080Ti allowed. MSAAx4 is huge.

I always skip one gen. Bought the 1080, didn't buy the 1080TI, then of course they changed the pattern and released the 2080Ti day 1. Probably won't get next years model.

I tried MSAAx4 on my 1080 and it’s a bit of a stutter fest, but looks so much sharper. Can’t wait now.

No-one has mentioned it yet, but one of the biggest changes you can make is to install the VR Shaders Mod. It's a massive pain to install and keep updated (you have to wipe your shaders and reinstall the mod each update), but it lead to a huge performance increase for my 5K+/2080Ti/9900K - it took it from noticeably jerky to incredibly smooth at 1.5PD/72hz.

Last time I installed it there were artifacts around the edges of my rift. Beyond annoying. Is that fixed in the latest version?
