Absolutely . There are other cards at that price level that offer similar performance , but none of the others offer 11gb of vram . I'm assuming you are aware you will be buying a used card . If you require a new one , consider a 2070 super .

9700k , Aorus Pro wifi , 32gb 3200 mhz CL16 , 1tb EVO 970 , MSI RX 6800XT Gaming X TRIO , Seasonic Prime 850w Gold , Coolermaster H500m , Noctua NH-D15S , CH Hotas on Foxxmounts , CH pedals , Reverb G2

Think about new RX 5700XT but some custom model with better cooling. New MSI or Gygabiteare 410-420$. This card is in range of 2070Super with performances or near 1080ti. It is fast as 1080ti with OC that is why you need a custom model with a minimum of two fans.

Also, RX 5700XT has new RDNA architecture which has some new unique features as RIS and scaling which could basically work like SS/PD but on GPU level with less hit on performance than it is actual SS/PD true Software.

 

This is a new Card and it is in the budget range. If you are not satisfied you can return it in time.

 

Here is an custom example made by XFX in range with price as reference model.

CV1 actually requires a lot of horsepower, you're gonna want to push PD in an effort to make yourself not go blind. 1080ti is optimal, and it gives you room to upgrade your HMD later. Be aware nobody is quite sure what the ideal replacement will be, recognizing that benchmarks don't always predict performance in DCS, in VR. I'd bet money the 5700XT ain't it
