GTX 1080 worth getting at this point or wait for 1080 ti?

Currently using i7 6700k + gtx 970. Graphics in vive looks ok but when I turned on super sampling 200%, everything looked so much better. Well.. at least till I started moving in game. Everything became incredibly choppy though it looks super sharp when I am not moving and there's nothing moving on screen. Can current gtx 1080 handle super sampling 200% on all vr games? I was playing The Brookhaven Experiment but I want to run all games at 200% super sampling with smooth framerate. Can gtx 1080 handle that or should I wait till jan 2017 for gtx 1080 ti? 

 

Do sli make any difference in vive vr games? dang.. I blew so much money buying vive and other games and everything looked good till I looked at super sampling 200%. Once I saw super sampling, there's like no going back. Everything looks so crappy when I turn it off but when I turn on, my gtx 970 can't handle it.

I've got a 1080 with SS set to 1.8 runs everything fine at that i had a couple of judder moments in various games at 2.0 the 1080 does run everything really well so it is worth purchasing now it should cover the enxt couple of years at least in VR

I see. I saw gtx 1080 going for $599 + tax.. but I am a bit hesitate to buy at this point coz gtx 1080 ti is coming out next month. I mean.. price difference is only $100 or so but performance difference is almost 30% and if that's the case, I would rather pay a little more and get 1080 ti. I am also concerned they may drop the price of gtx 1080 around 1080 ti's release time. 

 

I wonder though. Would gtx 1070 sli work on VR? I mean sli works good on some games but on some games it doesn't work. Would vive take advantage of sli? On spec sheet, 1070 sli is slightly more powerful than gtx 1080 ti.

I got a 1080 it runs perfectly and never really gets pushed to its limit with the games i play. 
I guess if you play the car racing games then you will find it being pushed more. 
Should i add a 1080ti to my rig as well as my 1080?

Not very many games use sli yet though so it's probably not really worth the extra expense

I personally went with a (strix geforce) 1070 pre-overclocked that you can oc as you like. Cheaper, better bang for your buck IMO. Here are top reviews:
