New Gaming Rig Build - GPU Help For 3 Monitors

I would like to get into some VR but the point of this rig is to be able to use 3 monitors with racing games. I've read through all the ranking forums and build guides many times which is how I came to this configuration, but I just can's settle on a GPU (some have temp issues, etc but I don't think I will be OCing, the price is the killer for me, was looking in the $400max range but looks like I need to up it to about $600max, also a lot are out of stock) . I also would like to know if my current rig could be upgraded sufficiently with a nice card or if this new build is really necessary - current rig can barely handle one monitor with low graphics. Thanks so much for your time.

  1. Seagate PSU? Are you sure you don't mean Seasonic? :??:

    That build looks pretty good. A lot of people would recommend some form of Ryzen CPU but for strictly gaming it's hard to top the 7700K at the moment.

  2. Yes Seasonic! Apologies. Everyone has been pushing me toward intel, I heard Ryzen didn't live up to the hype? Why pushing toward Ryzen? How about the GPU? Thanks for the response!

  3. I've settled on an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 GAMING iCX, 08G-P4-6686-KR, 8GB GDDR5X

    Any reason that wouldn't be a good choice? thanks!
