I am now thinking of going for a gtx 1070 might as well pay the extra to enable my new build to be ready for VR, I am stuck between the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING X which has two fans and Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 which has 3 fans, my concern is the noise what do people recommend? am I stupid paying £400+ on a card?

No.

If you just want to play games, your CPU's iGPU packs enough processing power to handle most stuff, albeit at the lowest of low resolutions and detail settings. What you buy with a dGPU is a better experience, and how much that experience is worth to you is entirely up to you. Personally, I wouldn't bother with anything less than a 1060, but paying 60% more for a 30% gain with the 1070 is very tempting.

Rx480 or gtx 1060
