    Yes I use 1080. Ahh no it is 1920 X 1200

    Yeah you need a new PC/monitor before a new gpu I think.  A 3080 is for people with say rtx 2070 or lower gpu that feel like they gpu they are using can't handle the games and resolution they are playing using.

    Your 1920x1200 is essentially a 1920x1080 just it's 19:10 instead of 16:9

    What CPU are you using?

    I see okay. Don't really have space for a bigger monitor my PC area is cramped. My table has a bar over where the monitor is and the monitor cannot go above that height. I have loads of stuff all around the PC table so .....

    Edited my previous post btw it was full of spelling errors lol.
     
    Resolution means more pixels on the screen it doesn't really mean a bigger PC screen meaning you can have a screen of equal size and one will be at 1080p and the other will be at 1440p but still the same size physically.

    I saw an article yesterday on Tom's Hardware that showed testing done on a 3080 using different CPUs 
    They said even an i3 10100 has much better numbers than an overclocked i7 4770k with the 3080. 

    'The i3-10100 ends up about 25% faster overall compared to the overclocked i7-4770K'

    https://www.tomshardware.com/features/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3080-ampere-cpu-scaling-benchmarks

    It is a great read about CPU scaling with the new GPU

    Dunno what games you play but at the very least if I was you I would wait till mid october for the cheaper 3070 to come out as 3080 will simply be overkill think.

    I am looking into a 3080 but only because I will be using it in a  VR PC which requires as strong a gpu as you can justify spending on.

    btw you never mentioned what gpu you currently use?

    It's always best to wait 6 months before buying new hardware. From experience, you don't want to be the first one out the door with a tech product. The first run typically has issues that are ironed out in the second run.

    For VR, you want a balanced system for consistent frame rates. Any drop below 90 fps may become vomit inducing.

    My Alienware has 875 watts power supply but the card won't fit into the Aurora R4 plus it is almost 6 years old. I am probably going to have to get a new machine for the card.

    Just get a new PC case and put w/e is in your aurora r4 into it? 

    No need to buy a new "machine" if what you have works and isn't that old.  That said if it's 6 years old might be a good time to plan a new build.

    If you just transfer the "guts" of your aurora you don't even have to reformat or anything other than putting in the proper driver for you new gpu.
    It might not be that easy to just get a new case.  Dell is fond of doing all sorts of weird, custom things to ensure that in order to change anything, you have to buy the replacement parts from them at inflated prices.  If they were to put motherboard screw holes in non-standard places, for example, then you won't be able to attach the old motherboard to a new case.  You might be able to replace the case, but for that old of a machine, I'd sooner just replace it outright.

    Highly doubtful in my experience even for prebuilts that do odd things the screw placements are standard to the mobo size however using odd things like those weird plastic "snap in" standoffs which also replace the standard screws  can definitely happen.

    Like you say however her system is old and she should probably look into getting a new build and possibly keep this one as a back up or secondary PC.  Her PC seems fine for what she is using it for right now though so she should probably wait for black friday sales if she really needs to upgrade to a new build.

    Most VR headsets have a 90hz refresh rate, so you're never getting above 90fps in the first place. The Oculus Quest was pretty well reviewed and had a 72hz refresh rate. But yeah, some people can become nauseous more easily than others in VR and severe frame rate drops aren't a good thing.

    It's not really the frame rate drops. It's the frame rate consistency. For instance, you can have a game that consistently delivers a frame every 5ms, but once a second it drops a couple frames every 20ms. That stutter is one of the issues with motion sickness in VR. The other is sea legs where you don't get the same sense of movement as what you are seeing. I remember reading that 90 fps is where you want it.
