No benchmarks yet, but with my Oculus Rift ...
- I put it at "VR Ultra" and then tuned everything up to High/Ultra, whatever the top level is
- I got some reduced framerate, so I moved Supersampling from 1.25x and SMAA to FXAA
- Now it's buttery smooth, although I haven't tried an ice ring ... yet

But I fear it's just too big for my case
I've fit a ~10.4" long video card in my tiny little Silverstone SG05 that is 7x9x11".
However, this is a bit longer, so I put it in a deep CoolerMaster Elite 120, which is my default 'go-to' inexpensive case for gaming. In reality, with 2.5" devices, from NAND SSDs to Seagate's newer 7mm high hybrid 8GB+2TB NAND+platter and even 15mm high 5TB platter, I don't need as much storage space any more. So I'll probably look at one of those thin ITX cases that are under 10L of volume, as low as 7L.

Basically a GTX 1060 or an older GTX 970 is quite good for near-Ultra settings at 1080p.
No reason to go GTX 1080 for that.
Also, remember the "Mini" sized GTX 1070 cards out there too. A GTX 1070 will do everything.
There is the Gigabyte Mini-ITX one that is only 6.7" (170mm) long, the depth of a Mini-ITX (6.7x6.7") board.
There is also the Zotac Mini one that is only 8" (203mm), the depth of a typical, short MicroATX (8x9.6"), and will fit in most Mini-ITX cases too, like the boxy CoolerMaster Elite 110.
