PC Upgrade

Hello, I use my PC to run ACC in VR. Everything runs fine, as I have most of the settings on low.

My current setup:
i7-8700 @3.20GHz
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080
Samsung SSD 860 PRO 256GB
16G Ram
600W Power Supply
Cooler Master HAF 912 Case (Do I need better airflow?)
Oculus Rift S

I was looking into better graphics/performance.
Not looking to spend a fortune.
What should I upgrade first?

Thanks guys!
I have the 8086K, it's basically the same chip as yours it's just binned but it's running at 4.9ghz. I don't seem to have any issues with the CPU though, it's the GPU that's the issue playing ACC in VR (HP G2). My GPU is a 2070 super and it allows me to run with medium/low settings.

The problem for you at the moment is that it's almost impossible to buy a GPU at the price they're supposed to be. You either have to sit on websites waiting for them to come up and get lucky (at this point the price is often €100 or more than it was on release day), or pay 2-3 times their actual value to scalpers.

I'm in a cue since September for a 3080 and it's not at all certain I'll get it, the shop may cancel the orders because the price has gone up for them.

But the upgrade your looking for is probably at least a 3070, the 3060 doesn't seem to be much of an improvement on your current card. May even need a new PSU.
